Melody Hanson was born to be a professional dancer and she’s so close to achieving it. But when her best friend Miranda leaves their intramural hockey team and the dance team captaincies to Mel, it’s an honor. It’s also a ton more responsibility right before she’s set to graduate with her dream job. She can juggle everything for half a season, right? It might have been possible if Miranda’s older brother hadn’t taken over coaching their hockey team, reigniting the major crush Melody’s had on him for as long as she can remember. They’d always been star-crossed, but now those stars are aligning. Following her heart and her dream had always been the same path. Until now.
Spencer Evans breathes hockey. Assistant coaching for UNLV’s Aces has been fulfilling, but the head coach spot is opening up, and it’s his. If he can get a little outside experience first. When the Lady Sinners offer him that chance, he can’t say no, especially not when his little sister Miranda begs him to save her team. It’s not ideal, but along with the experience, it also puts him in daily contact with Melody, the girl he’d spent the better part of his teen years secretly in love with. The more he’s with her, the stronger the sparks until a full-out fire blazes between them hot enough to melt the ice. But she’s about to graduate and leave Las Vegas—and him—in the dust. Asking her to stay would mean asking her to give up her dream, but he’s not about to give up on her.
