Mike comes to Moncton wanting nothing more than to play for the Ice Cats and finally live on his own terms. He's broke, bruised, and covered from head to toe in cheap lube, but he isn't going to let that stop him. All he needs is a place to live and some time to figure out how to reconcile who he really is with who everyone wants him to be.
Dumping three gallons of lube on the new kid is just another day at the office for Alexei. He knows exactly who he is: a goalie on the ice, a prankster in the locker room, and a man who knows better than to share his private life with anyone. He's let people in before and it's taught him that if he can't have what he really wants, it's better to be alone.
Despite their apparent differences, an unlikely friendship grows. Neither of them could ever have guessed how much they really have in common.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Alexei is sure Mike does not know what he is asking for when Mike wants to hook up with Alexei. Mike knows exactly what he wants and he knows Alexei can give it to him. I loved these two guys. They are caring men. They are strong. Both know their own minds and will grab what they want. They create a family with Rupert and Callum (from Home and Away) and their family. I love the dynamics between the two men and how they complement each other. I cannot wait to read their next book.
