Icebreaker or endgame?
Can two devoted athletes make room in their lives for love?
Mike Reimer knows from experience that hockey and relationships don’t mix. And hot-tempered swim coach Bridget O’Reilly couldn’t be more wrong for the widowed pro goalie, aka the Iceman. As the playoffs approach, Mike’s growing feelings for her could melt the hardest heart. But what if being with Bridget means letting down his team…and, worst of all, himself?
BRIDGET WAS SURPRISED the next morning, after she’d wrapped up practice and finished her own workout, to find Mike waiting for her in the lobby. He patted the bench seat beside him.
“Did you forget something?” she asked.
“Not really. I wanted your help.”
Bridget watched him with suspicion. He looked very pleased about something.
She sat down, cautiously. “Okay, what is it?”
He shook his head. “It’s nothing scary. I’m not even going to ask you to do any breaking and entering. At least, I don’t think so. I want to skate.”
Bridget raised her eyebrows. “You’re telling me you want to spend more time on the ice? I guess I can understand that. Hockey players get so little time to skate. Do you not practice anymore? Kicked off the team, perhaps?”
“Outside,” he continued in unruffled good humor. “I want to skate outside. Where’s an outdoor rink that’ll be available, and not too congested?”
Bridget relaxed, thinking through the options. “Wait, I have a place that might do. It’s not too hard to get there. Shall I ask around the pool here for a skater?”
“I was hoping you might...” Mike looked at her, eyes crinkling.
Bridget considered. She’d been trying to stop thinking about him, had even put an elastic on her wrist, snapping it when she found herself dreaming about him. One of her swimmers had asked if she was trying to quit smoking.
The smart thing to do would be to claim to be busy. But she loved to skate, and well, the elastic wasn’t working anyway.
