A goalie has to trust his instincts, even when taking a shot to the heart…
Mike Beacon is a champion at defending the net, but off the ice, he’s not so lucky. A widower and a single father, he’s never forgotten Lauren Williams, the ex who gave him the best year of his life. When Lauren reappears in the Bruisers office during the playoffs, Beacon sees his chance to make things right.
Lauren hates that she’s forced to travel with the team she used to work for and the man who broke her heart. There’s still undeniable sexual tension running between her and Mike, but she won’t go down that road again. She’s focused on her plans for the future—she doesn’t need a man to make her dreams of motherhood come true.
Lauren plays her best defensive game, but she’s no match for the dark-eyed goalie. When the field of play moves to Florida, things heat up on the beach.
One of Mike’s biggest fans doesn’t approve—his teenage daughter. But a true competitor knows not to waste the perfect shot at love.

There's nothing more than I love is a second chance romance story and Pipe Dreams is all about that!
We've met the bitter and angry Lauren Williams in the previous books and never understood what her problem is with the team...and now we do! Lauren's heart was ripped apart after Mike Beacon broke it without a warning or an explanation.
Now, Lauren is temporarily filling in at the Brooklyn Bruiser office and that means running into her ex, Mike, in Brooklyn and being on the road with the team. The love and attraction is still there after all these years, but the hurt remains strong. How do these two be civil, when everyone on their team (thinks) knows their business and past history? Not only are they dealing with the team, but also Mike's very out-spoken teen daughter!
Pipe Dreams is a fantastic read that is filled with angst, drama, misunderstanding, but overall it's a HEA for these two characters. It just takes time for them to get there!
And seriously...I need Nate's book next. I'm dying to find about him and Becca!
