Chicago event planner Collins Brady knows how to make the magic happen for her clients. From elaborate weddings to cute baby showers, Collins knows what to do to make an experience breathtakingly perfect. In her mind, she adds the sparkle that makes everything shine.
If only she had that same sparkle in her personal life.
While she’s good at her job, her true career dreams lie elsewhere. If she could do anything, it would be to become an equestrian riding instructor. That dream, however, is shelved due to practicality. And that’s not the only thing Collins has shelved. After ending a relationship with her college sweetheart, Collins has taken her heart out of the game, too. She wonders if that magical kind of love can exist. But maybe it’s only a fantasy.
Or is it? All of that changes the night she meets Luca Ballerini, the rookie goalie for the Chicago Buffaloes. Passionate and fiercely determined, Luca has only made time for hockey in his life—until he meets Collins. Her spark hasn’t escaped him, and now Luca wants something other than his hockey career.
But following their dreams and hearts isn’t always easy. Can Collins and Luca find a way to live their dreams with each other?
Will love get past them? Or will this goalie make a perfect save of Collins’ heart?

“Luca,” I say, my tone serious, “why did you want to meet me after seeing that website picture?”

“It’s not obvious?” Luca asks, surprise resonating in his deep voice.

“No.”

“Have you ever seen a picture of someone that made you intrigued and want to know their story? That’s what happened with you.”

I furrow my brow. “What story?”

Luca is silent for a moment. “I think you have a lot of stories, Collins.”

Ooh!

“You are uniquely beautiful; I won’t lie. That’s what caught my attention at first,” Luca continues. “Then seeing you posing with a horse, I couldn’t get over how genuinely happy you looked. Livy told me the horse was yours. While she went on to talk about bracelets, I couldn’t stop thinking about you. The girl with the cool name. The girl with the freckles and the light-brown hair and the toffee-colored eyes. The girl who loves horses. I wanted to know her story. Your story.

I stare back at him, impressed with his honesty. This is a man who doesn’t play games. Luca is direct. He takes charge and goes after what he wants.

He took action tonight, just like I did.

“Hopefully, my story will live up to what you envisioned,” I say.

Luca is quiet for a moment. His hazel eyes linger on mine.

“So far it has.”

About Aven Ellis

I live in the Dallas area with my family. I enjoy clipping out recipes I will never get around to trying, working out, and chatting with friends on social media. I’m a hockey nut (Go Stars!) and watch as much as humanly possible. I also love shopping and fashion and admit to being obsessed with whatever the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing. In addition to be obsessed with the Duchess, I’m equally obsessed with any show or cookbook featuring Gordon Ramsay.
