Genre: Contemporary Hockey Romance
Out on the ice, the season’s going great, but in the locker room the pranks are getting out of hand. It was time for me to remind everyone not to mess with me— so I came up with a prank the team, and my best friend, would never forget.
Renee Weber is my best friend’s sister. And like me, she’s also ready to teach her brother a lesson. Together, we work out the ultimate April Fool’s prank— telling everyone that Renee is having my baby.
Our plan works perfectly, except for the part where I fall for Little Weber.
What’s the worst that could happen? Either lose my best friend or Renee. Quite frankly, I don’t know which one is worse.
It’s not in my DNA to lose so I’ll have to come up with something big. I’ll pull out a win one way or another.

I was getting antsy. It took all self control to keep myself from bouncing my leg while I hung out with Webs to play some Call of Duty. Renee was coming today and she assured me she was ready to announce our love affair.
I was worried that she might not get onto the airplane and bail. I kept checking my phone for that she was on the way or any update at all.
Webs elbowed me, “Dude. Quit looking at your phone. I need you to protect my flank.”
“Well it’s not my fault that your girl keeps sniping. If I didn’t know better, there’s trouble in paradise.” It was weird that Lily was also playing with us but she was upstairs rather than with us but whatever floats their boats.
“If you were going to be such shit company, I would rather be hanging out with Lil.”
Shit there was trouble in paradise, maybe this wasn’t the best time for a prank but it’s too late to tell Renee that we needed to hold off. “What’s the deal?”
“She got word that Riker’s coming back and she’s going to be sent down to Hamilton in the next week.”
Their whole love story was pretty epic since they fell for each other when she was an emergency backup goalie and she earned a spot on our team while Riker went through alcohol rehab treatment. I hoped that they would get the whole season together but that just sucks.
“It’ll be okay. We’ve been lucky that she’s on the team. Who else gets to hang out with their girlfriend so much?” That’s Webs looking on the positive side of things but no wonder he was giving some shit for being bad company if he wasn’t going to see her for a bit. I’m surprised he was spending the afternoon with me.
The doorbell rang. I tried to pretend I didn’t have any idea of what was going but that had to be Renee. He paused the game and answered the door.
If it was possible, she looked even more beautiful then she did in late January. Her hair was looking lush, long and wavy. While her green eyes were similar to her brothers, hers always seemed to pop especially when her dark hair was down. I was instantly hard by her beauty.
Too bad this prank was the closest thing I would get to having her as a girlfriend. Then again, the next few days would really see how much of a dead man I would be if I did touch her.
The moment she spotted me on the sofa, she looked pissed. She came my way and slapped me right across the face. I was in utter shock and just sat there blinking. “What did I do?”
We agreed, we would ad lib the announcement but oww. Did I have to get slapped? She shouted, “You got me pregnant, you asshole.”
In unison, both me and Webs asked, “What?”
Then Webs turned towards me and he looked pissed. Not that I blamed him but I did supposedly break the bro-code. “Did you sleep with my sister?”
“Um…. Maybe…” Then I got hit for the second time in the span of minutes. That one I was expecting.
There was no way sleeping with your best friend’s sister wasn’t ever going to be a free pass. That didn’t mean that didn’t hurt my jaw. Especially since he got me in the exact spot as Renee did.
Rubbing the spot that he hit in the vain hope it would stop the stinging. Both of the Webers were screaming at the same time. He yelled, “Get the hell out of my house, Shoresy. I don’t want to kill you,” while, Renee screamed “Don’t you dare kill him Colton”

I had the perfect date. I brought her home and right as we were about to get it on, she ran away. So I never expected to see her ever again but here she is becoming our emergency backup goalie.
How can I convince this amazing, talented girl to give us a second chance?
Not helping things was getting egged on by teammates to make a move since it’s Valentine’s Day.
So I did something incredibly stupid and kissed her. At least, she kissed me right back.
Maybe all hope isn’t lost, except for the fact, it’ll be just one night.
If only she could play with us every night but stranger things have happened. She could have the best game of her life and win a spot on the Sound.
That would be amazing.

He chuckled and tried to hide his smile behind his hand. I didn’t understand what he found so funny. He said, “‘Cause normal girls can just afford to spend thousands of dollars on dates with bachelors at a charity event. Besides, there’s no way to remain anonymous after tonight. You know that, right?”
He was right. At least for a short bit, I’d be famous. Then the hoopla would die down and people would forget about me, since it was only one game. “Only if I have to play.”
The two of us made our way down the hall. As we were about to turn into the hallway for the locker rooms, he stopped me. “It’s Valentine’s Day. Would you want to finish our date after the game?”
It seemed too good to be true. He was pretending I hadn’t completely flaked on him.
I don’t know what got into me, but I didn’t want to commit to a date. Probably because his ego might have gotten too big for his britches and I thought he could do what I was about to ask. “Only if you score tonight.” I stared at his jawline that I was so desperate to kiss again.
His eyes lit up. “Oh, you can count on that.”
Then his soft lips came down on mine and we kissed again. It was like no time had passed since our last kiss.
The moment was broken when I heard an “Ahem.” Colton pulled back from the kiss, and Scotty was staring at us. “When I said help Lily get acclimated to the team, that’s not what I had in mind.”
I was mortified that Scotty caught us kissing. I don’t know what made it worse: the fact that Scotty was my boss for the day or that I thought of him as an uncle.
Scotty was clear. “My office now.”
That ended the moment, and we followed him to his office. As we got to the office door, he pointed to Colton. “Wait here.”
I walked into the cupboard-sized office. It wasn’t made to host a lot of people. “Sorry about that in the hallway.” I couldn’t bring myself to actually say that I was making out with Colton.
Scotty sat down. While he was trying to be tight-lipped, you could see a smile on his face. “Are you going to hit the Sound with a sexual harassment lawsuit?”
“No.” That was the last thing on my mind, even if things ended badly. I couldn’t believe he’d just asked me if I was thinking about a sexual harassment lawsuit.
“Then it’s fine, as long as you guys only canoodle when people can’t catch you.”
I don’t know what I found more shocking: him using the word “canoodle” or that he seemed okay with the fact that he’d just caught me making out with one of his players. “Wait, you’re okay with what just happened?”
“Yeah. Both of you are good kids, and it’s Valentines. You deserve to have some fun.” It was so shocking. He was protective of his daughter, Alex, when it came to dating, so I figured that he would be pissed to see me making out with anyone. Then again, he was so romantic with his wife, so I might have read him wrong.
Regardless, I wasn’t going to look a gift horse in the mouth and question things.
“The real reason I wanted to talk to you was that I needed to make sure your head was in the game for today since I just got word you are going to play.”
“Wait! What? I’m the EBUG. What’s going on with your backup goalie?”
“Showed up puking in the locker room. He wasn’t feeling well this morning, but I thought he could sleep it off. He didn’t. He’s going to start the game so we’re legal, since we must dress two goalies. We’re only going to play him for the first period or until he can’t play anymore. Whatever happens first.”
This should have been a dream for me, but it changed everything. It was a lot of pressure, and I was going to get so much press regardless of whether we won or lost. I stated the obvious. “Not having much luck with goalies today.”
