Nicky Ericsson has had a long fight with addiction, and because of it, he lost his spot as the Portland Storm's top goaltender. But he's on the road to a comeback - both in his personal life and on the ice. He's throwing himself into charity work, recovery group meetings, training...all the things he needs to do to become the best version of himself he can be, and to keep himself clean. He has no other choice.
Jessica Lynch has been running the Portland office for the Light the Lamp Foundation for a few years, so she knows a thing or two about addicts. One of the main things she's learned is that even when they try to turn their lives around, sometimes the addictions get the better of them. Because of that, she takes a hands-off approach, keeping her heart out of things.
Nicky's attempts to better himself puts him directly in Jessica's path more often than not, and their attraction is instant and mutual. Can he prove that he won't fall back into old habits and complete the perfect comeback?
