The one adjective used to describe my entire hockey career. I prefer to call it hard work, at least I did until my game went to complete crap. I haven’t scored in eight games and my team owner is talking about trading me.

I’ve never believed in superstitions. Never needed one. I suppose I was “lucky” in that way. But now the best way to refer to me is desperate. I’d wear the same socks for an entire year just to be the high-scoring center I used to be.

Imagine my surprise when after spending New Year’s Eve with a woman, I score a hat trick in the next game—that’s three goals in one game for you non-hockey lovers. Now, I have to track her down and bribe her to do it again before every game. Get your mind out of the gutter, I’m not talking about it.

I find her and when I get to know her better, I end up spending more time thinking about her than my game, but she’s made it clear she wants no part of me. She’s going to learn that I didn’t become a professional hockey player without having to fight for what I want.

my lucky 13

by piper rayne

Is there anything that this dynamic duo can't write? The moment that Piper Rayne announced they were writing a hockey romance series, I just knew that it was going to be one of the swooniest sports romances ever and I couldn't freaking wait to dive into this amazing new world.

My Lucky #13 is the first release in the new Hockey Hotties standalone series and what an amazing start to a brand new world full of addictive characters. Sparks were flying between Aiden Drake and Saige Fowler from the moment they laid eyes on one another, even if that first night ended with a glass of white wine in his face. Aiden is one of those rare hockey players that doesn't have any silly little superstitions, at least until Saige brings him out of his losing streak. Now he is convinced that she is his only hope of winning...and he will do anything to keep her in his good graces, even if it means going outside his comfort zone.

Aiden and Saige's love story was a slow burn kind of romance. Their connection was absolutely addictive and I couldn't get enough of their hilarious banter. You could tell that these two were ALWAYS meant to be, even if there were some obstacles standing in their way. This story was a perfect introduction into this new series and I can't wait to get more stories from the Hockey Hotties soon!
