HITTING THE GOAL LINE
Chicago Dark Knights #3
Hockey Romance, Childhood best friends
From the age of five, I knew one thing;
Blake Jacobi was going to be in my life for a very long time.
For years, he was my protector, my best friend, my shoulder to cry on. I even followed him to Chicago when he got picked up by an NHL team.
Then lines got blurred and we landed in each other’s beds, but we were able to push feelings aside and not let a few little slips ruin our friendship.
At least, that’s what I keep telling myself.
Somewhere along the line, I fell in love with my best friend, and as much as I want to tell him, I can’t. All out of fear of losing him.
So I hold in those words and try to lose myself in meaningless relationships. But my efforts are for nothing when Blake lands himself in a jail cell.
All because of me.
Now those words that I’ve been wanting to tell him, will never see the light of day.
And it’s all my fault.
PASSING THE RED LINE
Chicago Dark Knights #2
Hockey Romance, Forbidden workplace romance, coaches daughter
The majority of my life has centered around one thing and one thing only.
Being the daughter of a player, I know the ins and outs of the sport. Including the hurt that can come with it.
I’ve grown to hate it.
That hate runs so deep that when a player steps into my life in a towel, I do everything I can to hate him too.
After a few summer nights, though, it starts to become impossible.
Especially as the season starts and we spend more time together when I take the position as lead photographer on his team.
The same team my dad coaches.
Now I’m back in the hockey world, falling for a grumpy hockey player I should want nothing to do with and dealing with my dad and his apologies.
Fingers crossed being back in this world doesn’t hurt me anymore than it already has.
SKATING THE BLUE LINE
Chicago Dark Knights #1
My whole life, I have only dreamt of being one thing.
From the age of three, I was obsessed with tutus, leotards, pointe shoes and everything that dancing had to offer.
After years of hard work, sweat and tears, I finally was able to make the dreams of the little girl in me come true.
Years later, I’m dancing for one of the most respected companies in the world, leaving out a dream and living the best life that I could have ever imagined.
Everything was going according to how I’d mapped it out.
I hadn’t mapped out two little blue lines skating into my life after a one night stand.
Now, there’s a possibility of me losing the dream I worked so hard to achieve.
And it’s all thanks to a professional hockey player with pretty eyes and a nice smile.
Hockey Romance with a surprise pregnancy
Posting “certain types” of pictures online is never a good idea.
Especially when you’re the star player of your college football team.
But I did it anyway. Never did I think that by posting my pictures online that I would find someone that I would actually be interested in.
But I did.
I saw her pictures, she commented on mine and the conversations were nonstop. She was the girl of my dreams and I wanted to meet her. Who knew that the girl of my dreams was the shy girl that sat next to me all semester.
Now that I know who she is, I want my shot. Only if she would give it to me. Every chance she gets I get turned down, but I’m not giving up.
I will show her that she is worth it, even if she may not think so.
WORTH EVERY SECOND
A football, college romance
A mafia romance with an age-gap romance between a nanny and the mafia boss
The world that we live in is a very dark place. Everywhere you look there is blood looming. There are powerful individuals waiting for you to take your last breath. Powerful individuals that would strap you to a chair and let you suffer. It’s those powerful men and women that took my father from me, the ones I’m going after. Starting with Dante Rossetti. He called the hit that took the most meaningful person in my life down. I will take him down, watch every inch of his life burn to a crisp, even if I have to pretend to be someone else entirely and lie my way into his life. I will destroy the man that everyone calls the devil and he won’t see a thing that is coming his way.
A baseball, fake dating romance
I had everything going for me.
Drafted right out of college. Signed a multimillion dollar contract. Slated to become a hall of famer.
All my prospects were looking up… Until a diagnosis caused me to ruin everything.
It took me a season to destroy my career and now I have to work to repair it.
Step 1 : Get clean.
Step 2 : Show my new team that their investment isn’t a waste.
Step 3 : Find a woman and convince her to be my fake girlfriend and make my mom happy.
1 and 2, I got a handle on. Step 3 is turning out to be a lot harder than I thought. Finding a woman was a piece of cake, convincing her is a different story.
Jen Zaragosa is hardheaded, feisty, and a pain in my behind. But even with her being all those things, I start to fall for her
This started out as something to make my mom happy and it’s turning into me planning our future together.
Jen is my grand slam and there is nothing fake about it.
An enemies to loves, single dad, college romance
I always thought that I would never see past the age of nineteen.
Growing up the way I did, that was normal. It was normal for parents to plan their kids' funerals.
But I was able to get out of that life and create a better one for my family and myself. Even if I was still being seen as a lowlife.
Most people saw the tattoos and the clothes and would steer away, most people except her.
Savannah Campbell. The cheerleader. The rich girl who had no business getting involved with the boy from the bad side of town, but she didn’t care. I hated her until I didn't and in a short period of time she became my everything. Including my salvation.
We were happy.
That is until everything I feared came knocking and brought everything down.
Now I have to ask, if I was able to live past the age of nineteen…
Am I going to live past tonight?
