My whole life changed in the blink of an eye.

I was supposed to start college on the Harkness Women’s hockey team. Now I’m showing up in a wheelchair instead.

Everything about my new life is difficult, and there’s only one person who understands. Across the hall, in the other handicapped-accessible dorm room, lives the too-delicious-to-be real Adam Hartley. His leg is broken in two places. 

We bond over broken elevators and hockey games. We’re just friends, of course, until one night when things fall apart. Or fall together. All I know is that I’m falling. Hard.

But can Hartley love someone as broken as me? His deep brown eyes hold their own demons. While my troubles are visible for everyone to see, his are hidden deep inside…

  • Great book!

    I read this book a few times, it’s that good. I’m looking forward to reading more books from this author since her stories were well written, and you feel like you’re in the story with the characters.

    What a beautifully written story. I had 2 friends in wheelchairs most of their lives. I was able to relate the things Callahan went thru to try and have a normal live. She did it . This is a true love story with a happy ending.
  • Love the book & I don’t like reading

    By BriannaSeaver
    Loved the outcome of the story, I hope it continues throughout the rest of the books to see how they end up! Hate to say but like the outcome of 50 shades😂

  • Year without skates

    By mvwpd
    I really enjoyed this book about two people in college who are on crutches at best, but are no longer able to skate and play hockey. They meet and get together to play video hockey as one of them learns how to live again after an injury sustained while playing hockey.

    Really enjoyed Corey because she wasn't the dumb girl like always in books! Sweet little read! I liked how the author kept the characters genuine.
