Shannon Klein is a small town girl with big city dreams. She wants nothing more than to leave her hometown of Whitefield, Connecticut, and move back to Boston, Massachusetts—where there seem to be endless possibilities for her career, social life, and love life.
Kevin Browne is an undrafted defenseman looking to break into professional hockey. He gets a chance to show his stuff with the Whitefield Warriors, the AHL affiliate of the Hartford Gladiators, when they offer him a one-year, try-out contract. His only goal is to secure a future playing for the team so he can be one step closer to the NHL.
Through a series of mishaps and well-timed encounters, Shannon and Kevin meet and quickly become friends—and maybe something more than friends, too. But they have to decide how much of their respective dreams they're willing to compromise in order to be together.
I'm so glad to finally have this eBook available for everyone. I had originally started writing this particular idea back in 2010, so it's been a long time coming! This is my first attempt at a totally new storyline, which has been a scary and daunting task for me. I don't want to disappoint!
Anyway, let me know what you think either by reviewing on Amazon, GoodReads, or leaving me a comment below!
But, honestly, wrapping up this story couldn't have come at a better time. The end of the year is always a really busy time for me, with the holidays coinciding with end of the year and the end of the quarter at work. On top of that, my boss will be traveling to Europe in November, and I'm stage managing a production of the kids' Christmas show at the local theatre. Phew! I've really got my work cut out for me coming up.
Now, all that being said, I'm a writer at heart—and writers have to write! I've got the next story lined up. Actually, it's something that I started writing back in the spring of 2012. I dusted off my flashdrive and was surprised to find that, unfinished, it's already longer than Shots on Net! I don't know if I'll be able to work on it much between now and January, but I'm thinking about chronicling my writing process this time around, so all you lovely readers can see what it takes to go from an idea to the finished product. Plus, that means I'll have to blog at least once a week—so I won't fall off the grid again!
And, in the meantime, have a happy, safe, and scary Halloween!
