Hard Knocks by Ruby Lang

Neurologist Helen Chang Frobisher is on a mission to ban hockey from Portland to prevent the kind of concussive brain injury that plagues her father. Oregon Wolves player Adam Magnus is desperately trying to secure his career and his retirement despite the team's dismal record.

But while the two spar in public over the future of a sports franchise on the brink, in private, they battle an impossible attraction. When their no-strings-attached fling turns into the real thing, Helen and Adam must decide what's really important to them. Will their relationship end up in the penalty box, or are they a winning combination?

Get a sneak peek at Ruby Lang's Hard Knocks (available January 11, 2016) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

If someone had told Adam that at the end of the night, he would come home with Helen Frobisher, he would have laughed. But here she was, in her slim jeans and that soft green sweater that made him want to rub his cheeks against her, catch his stubble on the smooth knit. He let his fingers brush it as he helped her with her jacket.

Now, she stood in front of his shelves, holding a highball glass full of water and tilting her head to scrutinize his pictures, his houseplants, his old Black Sabbath CDs, and a small collection of paperbacks. Most of his music and books were digital now, and he had an irrational wish to open his electronic devices up for her approval. But then, there wasn’t more to this, was there?
