Home Game by Odette Stone

He’s a professional hockey player trying to survive on his new team. I’m just trying to survive. I’m down to my last dollar. I live day-to-day in a world that doesn’t care. Despite my bad luck, I’m a fighter. I never give up. I never stop trying. Ryan Parker's wealth and generosity, sets him apart from anyone I know. Yet, I don’t trust him. It’s nothing personal. I trust no one. But when my bad luck takes a turn for the worse, one person shows up. Ryan Parker. I do not understand why he bothered because the guy has enough of his own issues to deal with. But I don’t have a choice. I need him. It’s a matter of survival. His friendship changed everything. It changed me. I started to believe in myself. I allowed myself to trust. And for the first time, in a long time, I felt my heart beat again. In the game of love, winning is harder than it looks. I don’t know the rules. I don’t know how to win. But I’ll play my heart out until the whistle blows. Home Game: Who's got your back when the puck drops?
