An anti-social goalie unhappy about being traded to Vegas meets an outgoing drummer in a rock band and discovers that maybe fighting their attraction is the completely wrong approach in this enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract hockey romance.

"Sometimes I feel like a square puck trying to roll down ice."
—Calum Lefleur, VEGAS CRUSH

Living in Montreal and playing the best hockey of my career after leading my team to a Cup-winning season last year?


Traded overnight to the Vegas Crush and blindsided with no warning whatsoever?

Also, check.

So now I’m in Vegas. Feeling all the uncomfortableness of a new environment where nothing is familiar. Where every person I see is someone I don’t know. Where "fitting in" will be nearly impossible without an established routine.

To help settle me in, Vegas Crush Media Relations arranged for a volunteer gig teaching guitar lessons to disadvantaged kids at a local youth center. They feel that connecting with the community will help boost my image with the Vegas fans.

I don’t mind volunteering at all. I prefer to keep busy, and I think it could be a fun way to pass my downtime.

But there is a hitch. Of course, there is.

That stunning drummer from Love Scrum I saw play my first night out in Vegas?

The one with the ends of her dark, silky hair dyed electric purple?

The one with the mile-long legs who danced with me (and kissed me) when I stupidly crashed that after-party?

The one-in-the-same gorgeous drummer I blew off at the end of the night because I’m awkward AF in new situations with new previously noted?

That one???

Well, today I found out her name is Billie Hirsch. And she is everything I said she was…plus a whole lot more. she’s the program director for those guitar lessons I’ll be teaching over at the Crush Foundation Music Workshop. Ms. Hirsch and I will be forced to work closely together throughout the entire season. Billie Hirsch kinda hates me and this is going to be a huge pucking problem.

**The KEEPER can be read as a complete standalone sports romance. Each book in the Vegas Crush series is about a different couple.
