Publisher's Summary

The instant Piper Allen sees Erik Titov, she wants him - wants his rock-hard body, sure, but the strength and mystery that lie behind that superstar hockey jock demeanor, too. So when he sidles up to her at a bar and slinks his arm around her waist, she's lost. What follows is the wildest night of her life…followed by inevitable heartbreak the next morning. And then, a few weeks later, a very big surprise: Two blue lines on a pregnancy test.
Only a check to the head could make Erik fall for a nice girl like Piper. But since their crazy-sexy night together, he's been trying to forget about her by falling into bed with every woman in Nashville, and it's not working. So when Piper shows up at his house with a baby-bomb to drop, it doesn't take much for Erik to suggest the nuclear option: Marriage. While it's supposed to be all for show, the second they say "I do," the ice between them starts to melt into sizzling steam. Contains mature themes.

An unrequited love and a baby.

As we learned in Empty Net, Piper has had a thing for Erik since meeting him. After finally having a night with him and then him breaking her heart, she is left with a piece of him: his baby. Erik has spent the past several months having sex with anything with breasts and legs. He's garnered significant media coverage and is at risk of being kicked off the team. When he learns of Piper's pregnancy, he sees an opening to keep in the good graces of the team's owner, Elli Adler. Considering he blames Piper for his predicament, he feels that the least she owes him is to marry him and lie to all of their friends and family in order to save his career. Then, once the baby is born, he can leave and go back to his preferred lifestyle of booze and babes. Against what is possibly her better judgement, Piper agrees to the arrangement. Though it kills her to lie to her loved ones, there's a part of her that hopes that while they're married, Erik will actually fall for her and want to be a family. Unfortunately, Erik is determined to never fall in love with anybody. He has never told anyone he loves them and has no intention of doing so in the future. But in spending so much time with Piper and really getting to know her, his walls start to come down. And it scares the living daylights out of him. For fear of turning into his biological father, he, predictably, freaks out and leaves Piper. The two do find their HEA and the book ends with no cliffhanger. I have loved reading this series so far and I can't wait to continue with Reese and Phillip's story in Breaking Away.
