One thrives off order.
The other lets his heart guide him.
Together they are perfectly balanced.
All elements of my life are controlled and measured. My days filled with check lists and colour-coded columns. With an animal and a youth shelter to run and people counting on me, I have no time for distractions.
Yet I can’t get the man I spent one fiery night with out of my head.
He has me acting on impulses I didn’t know I had and tossing my responsibilities aside.
I want to be with him and find the perfect balance between my personal and professional life. But how is that possible with us forced into a long-distance relationship as he travels with his hockey team?
Just when I think we can follow our hearts and make this work, a face from my past reappears, threatening to destroy all I’ve built.
I hoped returning to the NHL would fill the void in my life and restore my sense of purpose. Instead I felt that same emptiness.
Until I met Jacob.
After the anonymous night of passion we spent together, I’m elated to see him again at a fundraiser.
He’s my teammate’s little brother and he thinks it’s wrong to put his happiness first.
But I’m willing to do whatever it takes to prove our lives will be more fulfilling and complete together.
One way or another, I will convince him happiness is worth the risk.
