Can she let down her defenses to take a shot at love?

Gabi Kincaid’s life goal is making sure kids know they're loved. So, when tragedy strikes her best friend, Gabi drops everything to help her and her three young children. Even though that means moving into the home of the man who teased her relentlessly when they were growing up—her best friend’s older brother.

Max “Baz” Bastian is living the dream as one of the top defensemen for the San Francisco Strikers. His days are filled with hockey, pranks, and friends. Until a call from his sister changes everything. Now that he’s convinced her to move in with him, he’ll help her any way he can—even if that means paying for a nanny who’s stubborn and serious to a fault.

Teasing Gabi was entertaining when they were kids, but it’s different now. Not that she sees him as anything more than an overgrown child. Or does she? Tension blossoms between them. Opposites attract. But falling for Max could mean losing her best friend—and the found family she’s always wanted.
