Camden Poe is the last of The Lucky Three, the surviving Pittsburgh Titans who weren’t on the team plane the night it went down. By all outward appearances, he’s adjusted to post-crash life well but inside he’s wrestling with the guilt of living.
The catastrophe that killed the Pittsburgh Titans changed my entire world. My teammates were more than my friends—they were my brothers. I mourned their loss with the rest of the nation but then I did as I’ve been taught… I moved on. I focused on returning to the ice with the newly rebuilt team and put the tragedy behind me. Considering the circumstances, I adjusted well. Or so I thought. Now I’m plagued by nightmares of the crash and my play has suffered as a result. Facing the possibility of losing my place on the team, I need to pull myself together and fast.
My buddy and linemate, Mitch Brandt died in the crash, leaving his wife Danica and son Travis behind to pick up the pieces of their shattered family. After reconnecting with Danica at a support group meeting, I find myself inexplicably drawn to helping her and her son move forward. What starts as two friends finding solace in one another following a tragedy becomes something more, leaving us both wondering if we deserve this chance.
I feel as if I’m walking a precarious line between a man falling for an incredible woman and a man moving in on his dead friend’s wife. But one thing is crystal clear—I’ve found a peace with Danica that I wasn’t sure I’d ever have again. Now I need to find the confidence within myself to push past the insecurities and make sure she knows how important she is to me because if I don’t, I’ll lose the one thing that makes me truly complete.

We have the last of the Lucky Three, Camden's story, and this one is just as heavy as the others. Camden looks like he's adjusted well since the crash, but that's only because he's good at hiding the fact that he's suffering from Survivors Guilt. But when the nightmares get worse, and his playing suffers from it, it's time for the coach to talk with him....
Danica will do anything and everything for her son Travis, which includes picking herself up after the death of her husband in the plane crash that killed the Titans Players and Staff that were on it. It hasn't been easy, but they're adjusting.
Sawyer Bennett did a fabulous job of giving us a story about not only finding love after loss but also about learning to deal with survivor's guilt. I loved the chemistry between Camden and Danica, but what I loved, even more, was the way they were there for one another when they needed a shoulder.
I listened to the audiobook version of Camden, and narrators Aaron Shedlock and Savannah Peachwood were excellent; they added an extra dimension to the story.
I recommend this book to readers that enjoy STEAMY Contemporary Romances, Sports Romances, Love after Loss Romances, Single Parent Romances, or Friends to Lovers Romances.
