Jocks are nothing but trouble.
Student journalist Lane Matthews knows that all too well, which is why he's dreading his latest assignment: to write an intimate exposé of the most popular athlete on campus, River Brame.
But River isn’t your typical goal-scoring stud with a stupidly good body -- and Lane soon learns that the North Dakota captain is hiding a softer, sweeter side under that hard body. Lane has to stay professional and remind himself that River is straight, and not looking to score with a gay sex columnist. Even if he could swear that River is flirting with him ...
Where there's smoke, there's fire.
River’s dazzling skills and jaw-dropping physique have him destined to be a star in the NHL -- but the cut-throat media is desperate to smear his name. Lane’s feature story will help River set the record straight and dispel the damaging rumors. Can Lane help River extinguish the embers of controversy ... or will they ignite an even hotter one?
As the two men grow closer, suspicions about their friendship start to spread. Can River manage fame and a secret life? Is Lane chasing more heart-break and humiliation? And will their secret passion drive them apart ... or can Lane and River break away and find their path together?
