Hockey star Kyle Murphy pursues matchmaker Marissa with the same single minded purpose that she pursues him- except that he wants her for himself and she wants him for someone else!
Matchmaker Marissa Collins needs to grow her database of high-end dating prospects if she wants to retain her demanding client list. Scouting Philadelphia's newest hockey star seemed like a good idea -- until the notorious playmaker makes a move on her. She's never mixed business with pleasure, and she can hardly start now when a high priority client has requested an introduction to the town's hottest bachelor.
Power forward Kyle Murphy may lead the league in goals, but scoring with a sexy matchmaker forces him to rethink his game. Marissa only sees him as a prospect for her stable full of commitment-minded single women, so Kyle has to make a new play to get her to see him in a new light. It's a tied game poised for a shootout. Can playmaker Kyle find a way for them both to win?
