Sometimes, your worst enemy can become the one you love the most.
Leo may be one of the best goaltenders in the minor hockey league, but he has one chink in his armor—Dern. A forward from Leo’s rival team, the two of them get along like fire and paper. Leo lives to stop Dern from scoring, and Dern relishes in getting a puck past Leo.
Then one night while Leo is out clubbing, he runs into Dern. Instead of squabbling, the two of them of end up heating up the sheets. But is it just a one-night stand? And if not, do the two of them have a chance of changing from enemies to lovers?

My View:

Ok so this one got back to the original feel of the series. It was a cute story of enemies turning to lovers. A little rushed and too perfectly executed but because these men had a history it was easier to swallow. I liked that the author added a bit of meat to the story by involving families and friends in Dern’s coming out. I enjoyed this one and am glad to see some of the things I have come to love about this series reappear.
