When the gloves come off, she's worth the penalty...

Physical therapist Annie Davidson is great at her job but unlucky when it comes to love. She's just out of a bad relationship. A really bad relationship. All she can do is focus on work...that is until she runs into professional hockey player Alec O'Meara. She's a touch insecure and doesn't understand why he's interested in her.

Despite being one of the biggest players on the team, right wing Alec O'Meara prefers finesse over force. After the tragic death of his wife, he likes to keep things loose on and off the ice. But the red-headed Annie challenges his beliefs and makes him think about taking their relationship to the net.

The passion and fun they share is addicting and makes them long for more. But her insecurities that she's not good enough, and his anxiety over a long-term commitment will keep them apart, unless they can find a way to break through the defenses they've built around their hearts.


Atlantic City Hustlers’ right winger, Alec “Sequoia” O’Meara, lost his wife, Tamara, to cancer two years ago. Due to Alec’s famed talent, the media publicized both Tamara’s battle with cancer and later, following her death, Alec’s grief. Since becoming a widower, Alec, has ensured that his relationships never deepen – strictly remaining in the just-for-fun stage. 

Annie Davidson’s most recent relationship ended when she discovered her ex, Corey, having an affair with a medical assistant. Growing up her athleticism always shrouded her femininity and drew criticism. Discovering Corey’s infidelity reiterated old insecurities…making her feel inadequate. 

The courting/flirting set the pace for this incredible couple. I do not have much patience for a whinny heroine with low self-esteem, but Alec’s consistent encouragement made it tolerable. Every moment is remarkable – witnessing two people determined to not love again…fall so deeply…was incredible. 

Not sure what the authors have planned for the Atlantic City Hustlers series, but I hope it those plans include many more installments.
