Nailing It

Sparks fly on and off the ice when a sexy performance coach takes on a tough, hockey-playing cop.

Jake Evans is a born leader. He’s a cop by day, and by night he hits the ice as team captain and center forward for the Hunter Huskies, a team of hockey-playing firefighters, cops and EMTs. He’s fast, strategic and tough and knows the rink as intimately as he does a lover’s body. His team is on fire, on track to win the coveted Badges on Ice tournament cup.

Except for one problem.

In championship games, Jake chokes under pressure.

Sophia Lang is a world-renowned performance coach. She’s the one they call when a billionaire tech CEO faints when speaking in public or when an Olympian needs some mental encouragement to scale up from bronze to gold. She only agrees to coach Jake as a favor to a friend.

But Jake doesn’t need a long-legged sexy woman telling him what to do. Especially when she reminds him of a dominatrix he once arrested. He’s only working with her because his teammates will kick him out of his coveted center spot if he doesn’t. He’s hell-bent on showing Sophia who’s boss, even if it means getting her into his bed, where his performance always gets top marks.

Sophia sees right through Jake’s games to the troubled man beneath the tough exterior. She’s determined to control this relationship, no matter where it leads.

However, as unwilling attraction pulls these two together, Sophia discovers she has a stalker. As her ‘fan’ gets uncomfortably closer, there’s no room for games. Especially when a threat to Sophia brings out all Jake’s protective instincts – and kicks up the stakes to a whole new level.
