Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn't he? He's worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She's almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later, except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.
Vale Campbell isn't the same girl she was at 20. As crazy as she had been about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking had started to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that never would have happened with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do - until now. Because she's still crazy about Hawke, and if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.

"Hawke is sexy, emotional, and fantastic!" (Sandi Lynn, author of Forever Black)
Listening to this 5th audiobook in the Cold Fury hockey series was so entertaining! The hero, Hawke, is a defensive player for the Cold Fury. He's a guy who sleeps casually with women and likes to go out for beers with the guys. But it wasn't always this way, as before starting his Pro hockey career he was deeply in love with a girl named Vale. She broke up with him the night before he left for his first real job and he's been hurt and bewildered ever since. Now suddenly Vale is back in his life working as a trainer for his team and his life gets tilted off his axis. Vale had her reasons for breaking things off, serious reasons, but she was really young seven years ago when it happened. Now Hawke and Vale have to try to build a friendly relationship, complicated by the reason she's in Raleigh to begin with- her dad has brain cancer and is there for treatment. In the course of things, truths come out and both have to decide if they can forgive. Great narration!
