I hate hockey. He hates everything else… including me.
Falling flat on my back in a sweaty locker room isn’t how I planned to introduce myself to my grandpa’s hockey team. Especially when I’m there to turn the business around financially—something nobody else in the stadium seems to want.
That’s how I first meet Eli Salinger, the team’s aggravatingly smooth player-turned-coach. From the moment I introduce myself to him, he makes it clear he doesn’t want me there. It doesn’t take a genius to work out why. Eli’s only interested in one thing—turning the team into a winning side, no matter what it takes. And he’s determined to fight every change I try to make.
What he doesn’t know is that I’ve never taken on a project that hasn’t succeeded. I’m not about to let this be the first. I don’t care if he’s grumpy and adorable in equal measure. Or that every time he looks at me, it sends me all a flutter. This is a game of wits. And there can be only one winner.
Strictly For Now is a standalone, steamy opposites-attract hockey romance featuring an over-40s hero, a strong professional heroine, and a love match that will make you smile and swoon.
