Hockey is the only thing Billy Wilkins knows. As a child it literally saved him from a life of poverty and abuse, and now he is on the verge of losing a career he has worked a lifetime to build.
Recreating her life, Maddy Baumgarten became Madelyn Cornish, host of the hit morning show AM Dallas. She refuses to even remember the time she spent losing her identity to a man whose entire life revolved around hockey.
The harder Maddy tries to crush any feelings she has for Billy, the tougher it gets. He has always been able to get under her skin, whereas this time it feels like he is flaying her wide open. Billy’s life is imploding with frightening speed since agreeing to be on Maddy’s show, yet there is no way he could pass up the chance to be near her. Loving Maddy was never in question, although now he has much more to worry about than a woman who has built her world in ice.
Big, brutish, and totally lovable Billy Wilkins sucks you right into this story. The back history of his childhood and that of his niece and nephew is so heartbreakingly real you can almost hear the shouting and feel the fear. I really like that these characters, despite their money and careers, are just as cracked and flawed as anyone. The need to be loved is universal, and this author utilizes that in the most amazing ways.
