Quoi de mieux qu’arriver au bras d’un hockeyeur célèbre au mariage de son ex pour lui prouver qu’on est passé à autre chose ?
J’ai côtoyé des joueurs de hockey toute ma vie. Je sais à quel point leurs vies sont compliquées, et je ne veux pas que la mienne suive le même chemin. C’est pour cela que j’ai juré de ne jamais en fréquenter.
Je suis d’ailleurs tombée amoureuse d’un intellectuel.
Mais au lieu de me demander en mariage, ce connard m’a larguée et a annoncé ses fiançailles trois mois plus tard sur Instagram.
Croyez-moi, il ne s’en tirera pas comme ça !
J’étais en passe de battre mon record de points de l’année précédente, prêt à revendiquer la première place de la Ligue. J’étais au sommet de mon art et de ma carrière quand la princesse du hockey, Zara Stone, m’a contacté sur Twitter avec une drôle de proposition : s’incruster au mariage de son ex en me faisant passer pour son petit ami.
Ce qui pouvait arriver de pire ? Un cauchemar médiatique.
Au mieux ? Une super soirée avec une femme magnifique.
Alors ni une ni deux, j’ai accepté. Après tout, je ne résiste jamais à un défi.
Et qui aurait pu croire qu’on se retrouverait pris à notre propre piège ?

Tomber amoureux est bien la dernière chose dont ils ont besoin à l’heure actuelle...
Quand on grandit entourée de joueurs de hockey, une chose est sûre : hors de question de se mettre en couple avec l’un d’eux.
Et puis ce n’est pas comme si je cherchais une relation amoureuse... Jusqu’à ce qu’il chamboule toutes mes résolutions...
À en croire mes parents, j’ai commencé à patiner avant même de savoir marcher. J’ai été sélectionné à la NHL à dix-sept ans. Et je vivais à LA, la ville de tous les possibles. Qu’aurais-je pu demander de plus ? Un sport que j’adore, des fêtes à n’en plus finir et une vie de rêve. Jusqu’à finir en cure de désintox cinq ans plus tard.
L’une des règles à suivre, quand on en sort, c’est de ne pas tomber amoureux, et j’en ai fait ma priorité absolue. C’est pour cette raison, entre autres, que j’aurais dû me tenir éloigné d’elle.
Mais il a suffi d’une nuit, d’une simple décision, d’un seul acte, pour que tout parte en vrille.

Are you ready for The Southern Wedding Series?
Things are supposed to go smoothly on your wedding day.
Are you ready for The Wedding Series?
I promised him I would be there for the best day of his life.
Not thinking I wouldn’t be the one standing next to him.
But here I was attending the love of my life’s wedding day.
I smiled when I saw him and pushed back the tears that wanted to come out.
This was his day and I was going to fulfill my promise.
It was supposed to be the best day of my life.
But the second I got up, things started to fall apart.
The kitchen just caught on fire.
Flowers were from a funeral.
My bride-to-be just had an allergic reaction leaving by ambulance.
Oh and my ex-girlfriend just walked into the church.
They say you have to see the signs when they are right in front of you.
Maybe she was just mine to have.
Never fall in love.
That was my motto, and I was sticking to it.
Having my heart broken once was enough, and I never wanted to do it again.
He was supposed to be a one-night stand, the only thing I do.
One rule shouldn’t be so hard to follow, but then I went back for seconds, then thirds.
After that, I lost count of the number of times I lost myself in his arms.
When I wasn’t paying attention, my guard slipped.
They call me Private Mark for a reason—my whole life is a secret.
For two years, we danced around each other until I got her right where I wanted her ... under me.
Now that I had her, I wasn't letting her go. I thought we were on the same page.
I thought we were building something great.
Boy, was I ever wrong.
I had no idea that while I was falling in love, she was trying to convince herself we were temporary.
She thought I’d walk away.
She was wrong.
Now it's time to convince her she wants us too and to show her that the crazy, wild thing we have ... This Is Love.
Finding my teammate in bed with my wife made the decision I had been fighting with for years easier.
It’s time to move on.
A fresh start and a new NHL team in a big city. Most importantly, it’s my son Jack’s best shot.
It would be both of our best shots.
After a bad childhood, I made sure I would succeed.
The problem is I die a little with each patient I lose. It’s part of my career at Hudson Children’s Oncology Hospital, but it doesn’t make the sting of loss any easier.
Seeking anything other than a life saved isn’t on my agenda until a NHL player walks into my hospital with his son.
We’re officially off script the moment we meet.
If this love is anything, it’s unscripted.
Something forbidden turned into something so irresistible.
They call me an outcast like it's a bad thing.
An asshole byproduct of a shitty upbringing. I don't care about anything except myself and my little sister.
I will always protect what’s mine.
With one year left on my hockey contract I'm keeping my head down and my eyes on the goal.
A collision, with her, changes my entire existence.
Never fall in love with a sports star. That's what my stepfather always said. He told me athletes are complicated and moody—that the higher their paycheck, the lower their morals.
As public relations for the New York Stingers I know exactly what he means, but I can’t seem to say no to a friendship with one beautiful, damaged man.
What started out as hate turned into something else.
We tried to stay away, to keep our distance, but the pull was too strong.
Something forbidden turned into something so irresistible.
Drafted first round pick when I was seventeen, playing first line at eighteen, branded NHL's bad boy at nineteen. At twenty-three I was cut from the team and living back home with my parents. A knock on the door brought an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. All I had to do was prove I learned from my mistakes, so no way would I fall for a chick with a pouty mouth even if I wanted to spend all day devouring it.
When my father gave me a job, I had no idea it would be to babysit some washed up NHL player. He wanted me to be his chaperone, his overpaid babysitter. I thought it was a joke. Then I met him, Matthew Grant. I wasn’t prepared for this particular bad boy. He’s not only hot but he’s arrogant and kinda sweet in a 'you make me crazy' kind of way.
Basically now that he’s finished screwing up his life, he’s decided to turn mine upside down.
She’s the first thing I’ve ever wanted more than hockey.
He’s the guy I know I should stay away from.
But what if this thing that started out so wrong turns into something so perfect?
Becoming a teen mom at sixteen was not what I expected, but then again, neither was being a single parent. Still, I wouldn’t change my past because that boy is my world.
Hockey is the only thing my son seems to care about, so I work two jobs to make sure he can play. I’d do anything to make sure he doesn’t suffer because of the bad decisions his father made.
When he won a whole summer of hockey training, I knew in my heart he was going to have an amazing time.
What I wasn’t prepared for was meeting his new summer coach.
He was magnetic, powerful, and a player—in all forms of the word.
If my life had taught me anything up to this point, it was how to avoid making bad decisions, and Justin Stone was the definition of a bad decision.
I could never be a woman his family approved of. Even if I wished I could be.
Growing up as the son of a hockey God is one thing. Growing up as the brother of a second hockey God is another. I had big skates to fill, so it was a good thing I loved every second of it.
Summer was my off time, my time to let loose, but when they ask me to coach a hockey camp for underprivileged kids, I couldn’t say no.
But when she walked in holding a little boy’s hand, my heart stopped beating. Or maybe it started for the first time.
They were a package deal, and I knew this—wanted it more than I’ve ever wanted anything. It didn’t take long to realize that no matter what happened,
I would do anything to protect them.
She is the only one I want to be with.
When push comes to shove, I have to prove to everyone that this is my choice, and This is Forever.
When you grow up surrounded by hockey players you know one thing for sure, I was never going to settle down with one.
Heck, I didn’t even know what icing was. I was too busy climbing the corporate ladder, becoming one of the most successful realtors in New York City.
I wasn’t interested in dating or anything that got in my way.
First, he was my client and then he became my friend.
My parents told me I skated before I walked.
When I was eighteen I was drafted into the N.H.L third overall, playing in Los Angeles—the city of dreams.
What more could I ask for? I played hard, but eventually, I partied even harder.
Five years later I was traded a week after I entered rehab.
There was no time for anything except my health and making sure I’d come out on top. I had to be better.
There wasn’t another option.
One of the rules of recovery was ‘don’t fall in love’ and I made it a top priority. She was off limits in every single way.
Until it was too late
One night, one decision, one act can derail everything.
When push comes to shove, I’m only certain that, This is Wild.
That was when I gave up on men and love.
I didn’t count on the NHL’s golden boy, the beautiful, arrogant Cooper Stone turning my life and my hockey rink upside down.
My kids are why I wake up in the morning.
Hockey is what Cooper breathes for.
We’re from different worlds and places in our lives but when our hearts collided something so wrong and different turned into something so right.
My dreams came true when I was adopted at ten.
I was the best on the ice. Living the life of what every kid dreams of.
We’ve been best friends since then. Even when she was the annoying little sister following us around.
I would do anything for her.
It is another family vacation; except this time it feels different. Everything feels different.
All my memories have Dylan in them. From the first time I fell off my bike, to the time I got my heartbroken for the first time.
He’s always been my protector, but it’s time to let the dream of being his go.
One last family trip, one last goodbye.
Except fate steps in and has other plans.
At the end of the day, you only get one forever.
All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went in the opposite direction.
I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage, he broke up with me.
Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to make that man see that I did not need him.
I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my career high wave.
Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to crash her ex’s wedding.
The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night with a beautiful woman.
It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.
When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:
This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.
