One man’s passion, another man’s lies. Can love fix even the darkest of hearts?
Trent Hanson is a figure skating phenom adored by millions around the world. His whole life has been dedicated to the sport he loves even when the sport – and his own family – have turned against him. From the playground to the Olympics to his parent’s living room, Trent has fought against bullies and homophobes to be the out and proud gay man he is. But the constant fighting has left Trent tired, lonely, and skittish. All those fears will have to be shelved though when he’s hired to spend the summer working with the Harrisburg Railers ice hockey team. Who would have guessed that the man fate has decided to pair him off with is Dieter Lehmann, all-around sex god and a man who seems to have everything to prove and doesn’t care who he hurts to get what he wants.
Dieter has spent too many years languishing in the minors and a secret addiction to prescription painkillers means his career is in a downward spiral. His ex is blackmailing him and he’s close to walking away from it all. But when he’s called up in the run for the Stanley Cup to cover injuries he has a taste of what it’s like playing in the NHL and he realizes that a place on the Railers roster is what he wants more than anything. More than listening to his heart, and even more than caring for the infuriating figure skater who gets under his skin. When he crosses the line to get what he wants, he knows he has lost his way. He has to change, but is it too late for both his career and any chance he might have at love?

This is such a great series!
Deep Edge, book 3 in the Harrisburg Railers series, has a lot going on in it. I was really excited to read this story because I love figure skating and I couldn’t wait to see how the authors mixed a figure skater with a hockey player. While I’m not a hockey fan, I am a fan of these authors and this series. You don’t have to be a hockey fan to enjoy this book/series. The story is not full of hockey jargon at all.
Trent is a figure skating star who has lost everything due to his step-father’s gambling addiction. He’s faced with losing his skating rink, where he helps children, and also his home. When he’s offered a reality TV show gig he’s all for it until he hears that he’ll have to work with hockey players.
Dieter is hoping to get a contract with the Railers after having a good season being called up from the AHL to cover injuries on the Railers team. His addiction to prescription pain killers could cause everything he’s worked for to slip through his fingers.
Wow, there is a lot going on in this book and I stayed glued to my ereader right from the get-go until I finished it. It was hard to read about the things that have happened to Trent through no fault of his own. It was a little harder for me to find sympathy for Dieter. He’s in denial about his addiction and that’s bound to end up hurting him in more ways than one.
The chemistry between Trent and Dieter is smoking but that’s not enough to make a good relationship. When Trent finds out about Dieter’s addiction he’s not sure if he can deal with it.
I loved the character of Trent’s grandmother; she’s a hoot. She’s not a Railers fan and isn’t shy about stating that to all of the players when she meets them. She’s very enthusiastic about her love of the Flyers and doesn’t change her mind even after Trent and Dieter get together.
I am really looking forward to reading more books in this series.
