Title: Hard Checked (Ice Kings Series Book #4)
Author: Stacey Lynn
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Getting served divorce papers was not how I planned spending New Year’s Day.
I probably shouldn’t have gone to my favorite bar and gotten wasted trying to drown my sorrows.
I definitely shouldn’t have spent the night passed out in the bed of the bartender’s daughter, Gigi.
And the absolute last thing I should have done was let my guard down and start having fun. Now I’m thinking of her all the time… fantasizing about the things I want to do to Gigi.
I’m in the middle of the best hockey season of my life. I need my head in the game and my focus on the playoffs – not play house with the gorgeous bartender who makes me feel more alive than I have in years.
Finding someone new so soon after a failed marriage isn’t the smartest thing I’ve ever done.
But it just might be too late. I’ve been checked hard into the boards, right off my skates, and I’m not only spinning out of control…
I might just be falling in love all over again.

My dearest Gigi,
This morning, I walked by the nursery where you were sleeping in the recliner, holding Samson so firmly to your chest, wrapped in his blanket from Mikah and Paisley. I stood in that doorway, with you bundled in a dark purple robe, your pink-tipped hair pulled up into a mess on the top of your head, and even sleeping, even getting little rest while taking care of our two-month-old son, while I currently spend so much time on the road, you never looked more beautiful. You didn’t just give me life when I was so certain mine was nearly over, you gave me a family. You gave me a home. You gave me something I will never take for granted and will always strive to protect. You gave me you – and your unconditional love.
Prepare yourself, my love. Because tonight, your dad is babysitting and you and I have a date where I will ensure you won’t be catching up on any sleep… at least not until I wear you out completely 😉
All my love,
