    A secret unspoken love...the change of a lifetime.

    Andrew Ellis is a winger on a failing hockey team and sees an opportunity for change in the upcoming expansion draft. Through that, he believes he can escape his ex-wife and the painful memories of their daughter’s death from cancer. Not to mention the secret he’s been hiding—his year-long affair with his team’s equipment manager. He’s afraid his career will suffer if anyone finds out. Will Andrew find the courage to acknowledge he’s gay and admit his feelings for Dylan Murphy before it’s too late?


    Carrying a six-pack from the local bottle shop, Andrew pushed the doorbell of Dylan’s townhouse. He’d spent more time than he cared to admit trying to remember what kind of beer Dylan preferred. The lock clicked, and Dylan peered out from a home stacked with boxes in various stages of packing. He was wearing faded jeans with a hole in one knee and a rumpled, white T-shirt, a silent declaration that this visit was an inconvenience and not a welcome rendezvous.

    “Hey.” His expression remained shuttered. “Come in.” He reached for the beer as Andrew stepped inside.

    Andrew followed him into a trendy kitchen of dark cherry cabinets and stainless steel appliances, where Dylan popped the cap off two bottles and handed one to him. They moved into the living room dominated by a brick fireplace. Dylan’s clean and modern style, now stripped away and stuffed inside cardboard, had resembled the staged homes on television after a renovation, but with enough personal character to suggest someone actually lived there.

    Dylan dropped onto the couch and, with a bored exhale, thumbed the TV remote. “You had something to say?”

    “Where are you headed, anyway?”

    Dylan rolled his eyes. “Look, Andrew, I have a lot to do, so…”

    Andrew steeled himself with a swig of beer and a deep breath. He laid his hand on Dylan’s thigh, just above his knee.

    Dylan’s heavy eyebrows sloped inward. “What are you doing?”

    “Trying to be honest with myself. And you.”
