You, Again will be here September 8! Mark your calendars for Book 1 in my brand new small town/hockey series, Elmwood Stories. First up…Vinnie and Nolan, childhood friends with a past. *Cover design by Sleepy Fox Studio.

After retiring from the NHL, Vinnie heads home for the summer to figure out what comes next, and of course, to have some fun. Coaching teens with Nolan, his best friend’s brother, however, isn’t what he had in mind, but it’s a good opportunity to right some old wrongs, and start over. In more ways than one.

I don’t know about you, but I love small town romance stories and I’ve packed every trope I know into this one! LOL Bisexual awakening, best-friend’s brother, hockey, hometown romance, childhood friends…and more! I can’t wait to introduce you to Vinnie and Nolan and this brand new cast of characters in my Elmwood Stories series. Check out the blurb below and be sure to preorder your copy of You, Again.

The hometown hockey hero and his best friend’s brother… 


Hockey is in my blood. I learned to skate before I learned how to ride a bike. I’ve been on a wild ride, playing at the highest level for some of the biggest and best teams in the league. But now…it’s over and I’m not sure what to do with myself. 

But I’ll tell you what I’m not gonna do—I’m not going home to coach my buddy’s junior hockey league. No chance. I don’t know how to deal with kids, and besides, the other coach, who happens to be my best friend’s brother, hates me. For no reason. 

Okay…maybe Nolan has a reason.  

And it’s almost as scary as coaching teens.  


No, I don’t hate Vinnie, but he drives me nuts.  

He’s cocky, goofy, selfish, and yeah…after all these years, I’m still attracted to him. But I’m a responsible adult now. I run my family’s business, and with the help of my ex, I’ve made Elmwood Diner into a New England institution.  

So maybe my life isn’t particularly exciting at the moment, and maybe Vinnie isn’t the worst. Nonetheless, I have no desire to rekindle a friendship with the hockey hero who no doubt will be on the first flight out of town the second he gets bored or gets a better offer. 

And I’m not coaching with him. No way.  


I can’t believe I’m doing this again. 

You, Again is an MM bisexual, best friend’s brother, frenemies to lovers romance featuring old friends, a new quest, and a little hockey HEA!
