A brand-new standalone novel in the New York Times bestselling Briar U series!
What I learned after last year´s distractions cost my hockey team our entire season? No more screwing up. No more screwing, period. As the new team captain, I need a new philosophy: hockey and school now, women later. Which means that I, Hunter Davenport, am officially going celibate...no matter how hard that makes things.
But there´s nothing in the rulebook that says I can´t be friends with a woman. And I won´t lie-my new classmate Demi Davis is one cool chick. Her smart mouth is hot as hell, and so is the rest of her, but the fact that she´s got a boyfriend eliminates the temptation to touch her.
Except three months into our friendship, Demi is single and looking for a rebound.
And she´s making a play for me.
Avoiding her is impossible. We´re paired up on a yearlong school project, but I´m confident I can resist her. We´d never work, anyway. Our backgrounds are too different, our goals aren´t aligned, and her parents hate my guts.
Hooking up is a very bad idea. Now I just have to convince my body-and my heart.
