Carter Welling just needs a dog-walker. Big league hockey takes him away from home, and he can’t take Puck everywhere he goes. What he doesn’t need is a hot dog-walker who makes him think weird things about guys that he’s never felt before.

Something just keeps pulling them back together, though, and it’s not just the cuteness of Carter’s dog. When Luke’s dreams and Carter’s hockey career seem to be splitting them apart, can they admit that what they want—no, need—is each other?

Trevor: It was supposed to be a one-night stand.

Josh isn’t even my type. Physically, he’s insanely sexy. But he talks too much, tries too hard, flirts too shamelessly. I didn’t think it mattered for one night. I didn’t expect to see Josh again. And I definitely didn’t expect him to turn out to be a better person than a guy like me deserves.

So why the hell can’t I let him go?

Josh: It freaking figures.

I finally have some meaningless fun–and the hottest hook-up of my life–and I manage to pick Trevor, the guy whose help I need to sell my grandma’s cabin this summer. It would be easier if I could hate him. Trevor swears he’s no good for me, but the more time I spend with him, the more I know he’s wrong.

So what the hell am I supposed to do now?
