The St. Louis Mavericks are having the best season in team history. On pace for a pro hockey record, the unexpected death of their captain and star player knocks them off course in ways they never expected.
My world was turned upside down the day Ben Whitmer died. Best friends since junior hockey, Ben was like a brother to me. My voice of reason and a grounding force on and off the ice. But as heartbroken as I am, I don’t have the luxury of grieving his loss. 

Not only do I have to hold our team together, I was named guardian of the two young children Ben and his wife left behind. Well, not just me—me and his wife’s best friend, Hadley. We’ve been left with the impossible task of deciding which of us will raise the kids, but there’s no way I’m letting that uptight ball buster have them. 

Lines are drawn, but they begin to blur as I find out there’s more to Hadley than I thought. A lot more.
I can’t take the place of my beautiful best friend in her children’s lives. But I love them so fiercely that I’ll do whatever it takes to raise them the way their parents wanted. 

Wes Kirby is an obnoxious womanizer, and I won’t let him take Ben and Lauren’s children from me. Deciding to temporarily live together in our friends’ home, we attempt to provide the kids stability while we figure out which of us is better suited to raising them. 

As we learn parenthood together, my enemy Wes slowly becomes something different. Something more. And I’m left wondering not only if I’m enough for the kids, but if Wes and I are enough to last.

    Hadley and Wes’s coming together sorry is filled with so much emotion. These two go thru so much together and they find each other through everything they wether together. There was definitely some hate going on in the beginning but it really made them that much better together. The co-writing of Kat Mizera and Brenda Rothart is simply genius and I totally feel that everyone should experience this story.

    All the “Life As We Know It” vibes! A beautiful story about starting over in the way you least expect it. I fell for all the characters in this book and really loved how close they all were. Wes and Hadley’s story really proves that friends are the family you choose. Reading about these two weaving through the intricacies of parenting while learning to support and respect one another in the process was all sorts of swoon-worthy. I really enjoyed how their relationship progressed and they grew as individuals, a couple, and parents. The portrayal of the grief Hadley and Wes go through is so real and heart wrenching. Awesome first book in what I’m sure will be a great series! *I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
