Draft blurb - subject to change
One night of no-name sex is exactly what they need but breaking the rules of the game leaves Webber and Logan on the edge of destroying everything.
Five different cities in eight years and Logan’s never been given the chance to settle in one place. He's the guy who fills gaps in teams as a temporary fix and is traded at year end because no one wants to keep a thirty-year-old rental after he's outlived his usefulness. When he's called up from the Essex Schooners to the Rebels, he knows it's his last run in the NHL. Now he has to decide if it’s worth carrying on with the weight of his secrets around his neck for one more year. He’s never had a love that mattered, his career is nearly done, his ex-wife is remarrying, his sex life is drier than a desert, and abruptly Logan’s had enough. He craves one night to ease the frustration, and hooks up with someone tall, dark, and dangerous in the corner of a club. The sex is off the charts, but it’s one and done, until Logan realizes exactly who he’s slept with, and understands how dangerous it is to play games with secrets.
Being a referee is in Webber’s blood and it’s a job that he loves. Sure, sometimes he’s called dirty names - by fans, coaches, and players - or has to insert himself between two massive men trying to pummel each other. Some nights he’s knocked to his ass. Other times he might take a puck to a tender spot. But despite all the hazards and name calling, there is no place Web would rather be than on the ice. If only his love life was as settled. It's hard to find someone willing to put up with his travel schedule, and even if he found Mr. Right, how would he juggle a romance when he’s never home? A chance hookup while officiating a game in Boston should be a simple matter of scratching that itch, but he couldn't be more wrong. Unfortunately, that one-night stand - while memorable - turns his sedate life upside down in ways he could never have foreseen. When the penalty for love is losing everything he’s worked for, is it a price he’s willing to pay?
