Fifteen months ago, my life was turned upside down when the plane I was piloting went down. Injured and trapped in the wreckage, I had to watch my fiancée die a painfully slow death, which is something that can really mess with your head.
Since that day, I’ve had little desire to do much of anything. Except play hockey, that is. Because that is the one place where the bad memories are banished and I can escape my pain.
But off the ice, I’m spiraling out of control. Losing the grip on my life and putting myself and my career in danger. Now, thanks to a string of bad decisions, I’ve been ordered to complete therapy in order to stay on the team.
The problem? Nora Wayne, my beautiful and somewhat unconventional therapist. I can’t buy into the brand of happy clappy crap this woman is feeding me. What could she possibly understand about the type of loss that I’ve suffered? How does she know anything about finding happiness after losing the most important person in your life?
Turns out, I’ve got a lot to learn, and she’s just the person I need to break through those walls I’ve erected.
I am not okay.
But for the first time in a long time, I know that I will be.
After getting hammered and driving his car into a concrete barrier, Tacker has hit rock bottom. Never having dealt with the death of his fiance and the surrounding events, Tacker has spiraled out of control. Most teams would have dropped him faster than he could blink but the Vengeance aren’t any other team.
After bailing on the first team ordered therapist, Tacker is sent to Nora for equine therapy. He knows that his only option to stay on the team is to follow the rules laid out for him, including completing a therapy program.
Nora has her own history of intense trauma. Seeing her ability to get Tacker to open up by opening up herself was awesome.
What happens though when they realize that there might be more between them than a professional patient/provider relationship? Will Nora risk her career? Will Tacker risk his spot on the team?
“Two people who weren’t looking for anything, yet found something anyway.”
