**Romance Pick for Amazon’s Best of December 2017**

Eli Casco is on the brink of having everything he ever wanted. He's just been called up from the minor leagues to play goalie for the San Francisco Thunder hockey team. And he just had the most mind-blowing night with the woman of his dreams. But now that he'll be in the same town, she's completely shutting him down. 

Dixie Braddock loves her job as a publicist for the Thunder. But as much as she's always enjoyed doing the long-distance flirting thing with Eli, dating him now would ruin her hard-won reputation, just when she's up for promotion. He's the last distraction she needs on top of team shenanigans and an ailing father. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is to keep to her hands-off policy-especially when Eli is making all the right moves to play for keeps.

The elevator suddenly feels claustrophobic and hot. I move away from the wall, and him, and shrug out of my blazer. The air swirls around my bare arms, and I pinch the front of my sleeveless silk shirt and move it, creating a breeze.

“If it makes you feel any better I have somewhere important to be too,” Eli tells me quietly, still serious. “And I could use a little luck right now too.”

I have no idea what he’s talking about, and I open my mouth to ask at the very moment the elevator lurches up but stops just as abruptly as it did before. It makes me squeak in shock at the sudden movement and stumble, but he grabs me again, this time with both hands on my waist and I face plant into his chest. It’s rock hard and warm, and he smells unbelievable. I look up at him. “I guess we both need something good to happen.”

“So let’s make something good happen.” Before I realize what he’s doing he’s got his hands against my cheeks and he’s tipping my head back.

His mouth hovering so close to mine, he tilts his head slowly. His lips part just a little bit, as his mouth gets even closer. I feel like the whole world has stopped just like this elevator. We’re frozen in his almost kiss. And then his lips are against mine. It isn’t sudden. It isn’t rushed. I’m not taken by surprise. I knew exactly what he was going to do and I let him do it. Still somehow I’m surprised. My pulse races and my breath catches, but I kiss him back. With everything in me, I kiss him back.

It’s long, it’s deep, and hot and perfect and I find myself suddenly begging the universe to leave us here in this elevator forever. But the universe isn’t taking my calls right now, obviously, because the elevator shudders and starts moving down again. This time it doesn’t stop.

He steps away from me abruptly and my hand flies up to cover my mouth. He just stares at me, a victorious smile on his lips. “That was something good,” He says in that deep velvety voice.

Oh my God. Suddenly he’s way more than just a pretty face. And just like that I am totally, fully and completely crushing on Elijah Casco.

Victoria Denault loves long walks on the beach, cinnamon dolce lattes and writing angst-filled romance. She lives in L.A. but grew up in Montreal, which is why she is fluent in English, French and hockey.
