Beckett has everything. Until his bad habits wipe him out.
In his struggle for redemption, he falls for the only woman who wants nothing to do with him.
Paige is his last chance to survive. But will helping him mean losing herself?
When pro hockey’s bad boy, thirty-two-year-old Beckett Miller, is caught supplying the drugs that nearly kill his latest one-night-stand, the dominoes of his high-octane celebrity life tumble.
Beckett becomes the sport’s pariah and braces for the fight of his life armed with only a yearning for another chance and one lifeline: Paige Anderson, the reluctant real estate agent Beckett coaxes to sell what’s left after the fallout.
Paige has a big heart and a husband with a secret but is in peril of losing both as she forges an unexpected bond with Beckett–a bond that bares the man concealed beneath the bad boy bluster.
If you love enemies-to-friends-to-lovers romances, you’ll enjoy this steamy read that twists its way to a happily-ever-after.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The story’s been brewing in my mind for years, inspired by pondering what happens to a celebrity who’s used to being in the limelight when his/her glory days fade or when he/she screws up so badly that fans disappear. What does that “new normal” look like, and how does he or she transition?
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My main male character is a thirty-something pro hockey player used to lots of attention, and he parties like he’s an indestructible young-twenty-something. He’s so caught up in the lifestyle that he doesn’t realize his twenties have passed him by.
The character is an amalgam of many different personalities I've known over the years, seen in movies, read in books, etc. Once I started writing, he came to life and took on a personality of his own.
I could've chosen a different sport or career, but I love ice hockey, so it gave me a chance to write about something I enjoy.
