Hockey defenseman, Jordan Byrd, has made some mistakes. Not fighting harder to be in his daughter’s life was one, but the other was thinking that life would be somehow better without his best friend in it. However, as badly as he’d like Marlo back in his life, the last five years showed him a side of her he never imagined possible.
At twenty-two, Marlo Byrd unexpectedly finds herself divorced and raising an infant on her own. Jordan had been her everything—her family and her protector—until one day he decided he wanted out. No calls. No letters. Nothing. She managed to find solace in the team that was once his…until five years later, when Jordan’s traded back.
Back in the Enforcers locker room, Jordan is quickly put in his place—he may have a spot on the team, but his ex has a spot in the “family.”
Everyone has an opinion on what happened between Jordan and Marlo.
Did Jordan leave Marlo, and never look back, wearing the ‘deadbeat dad’ label?
Or did Marlo hold back on Jordan, wanting to hurt him the way he hurt her?
Gloves will be dropped.
Fights will commence.
But who will come out the victor?
I absolutely loved this story. Mignon Mykel is a new to me author and I'm so glad I read this story. From the first page she had me enraptured in Jordan and Marlo's story. If you want an "all the feels" story this is the book for you! I don't want to give away too much because it's 140 pages but it was so good I sat outside my work for 5 minutes to finish a scene before I went home. If you enjoy a second chance sports romance that is one of the best page turners I've read in the trope I highly recommend checking out 27: Dropping the Gloves!
