Cold As Ice by Violet Paige
I’m broken. Hell, maybe it’s how I was made. It’s not only my leg that is shattered, but my heart has never been whole. One rough play threatens to sideline my career with a splintered bone and months of physical therapy. But I fight back and find my place on a new team—the Dire Wolves. Then I meet Noelle. Gorgeous. Funny. Smart. And a single mom. She’s been burned before and the risks are higher than ever. She has a little girl who loves hockey like it’s in her DNA. Did I mention we met at Ice Puppies hockey camp? Noelle makes it clear she doesn’t date hockey players. No matter how good I am with my stick. There’s something she can’t deny. Our chemistry sizzles. I’m powerless to stop falling for her. If I can prove I’m not like the man who left her, There’s a chance I can have what I’ve always wanted—family. But Noelle is stubborn and protective of her nest. It’s going to take more than a few hot nights and smooth skating to convince her I’m the man who could give her forever. Cold as Ice is the third book in the Cold Love Series. All books in the series can be read as standalones.
