Sometimes scoring off the ice leads to the greatest rewards.
I’ve had only one goal in life since I first strapped on a pair of skates—make America’s pro hockey league.
I left Denmark. I made it to the top. Now, I’m determined to be the best. No distractions. I eat, sleep, and breathe hockey.
Until my birthday when my teammates convince me to live a little.
But living a little takes on a whole new meaning when less than a year later I’m confronted with a crying baby on my doorstep, drooling on a note that declares he’s mine.
Suddenly, I’m a single dad in way over my head.
There is no playbook for situations like this.
Luckily, I have Paisley.
My gorgeous neighbor, my long-time crush, and now—my savior.
She’s there any time I need her.
Helping. Guiding. Gazing at me with those green eyes that make me feel capable of this after all.
With her at my side, I’m quickly learning there’s more to life than winning a hockey game.
The guy who I’ve crushed on for months, and who now, will probably never be mine.
ARC REVIEW ➼
I am a sucker for Hockey romances and absolutely in love with the Ice Kings series. Mikah and Paisley’s story was sweet, emotional and one that I completely DEVOURED.
Mikah’s goal was to make it America and play in the NHL. He worked his entire life to get to where he is. This also means he had very little time for anything else, including relationships. However, it was the night of his 23rd birthday and he decided to finally take care of something and has one weekend of pure bliss. Paisley is a hard-working grad student and currently living in her uncle’s apartment while he is away. She has an insanely gorgeous neighbor who she has never talked to, she doesn’t even know his name. Until one day there is a surprise outside his door and that surprise completely changes both of their lives.
Mikah’s one weekend of freedom suddenly ends with him being a father and he is completely clueless at what to do and what a baby needs. Enter his neighbor Paisley. She helps him with his son, she becomes his support through this massive life changing event. Mikah and Paisley’s relationship continues to grow as they navigate from being strangers, to friends, to something more. I loved their chemistry and watching their relationship grow throughout this story. Paisley seamlessly fit into his life, along with his new son. Plus, Mikah and his soon. Those scenes will completely melt your heart!
