Mathieu Beresford was so close to seeing his dream come true.
The thirty-eight-year-old captain of the Buffalo Surge had led his team to the final round of the playoffs with his aggressive defensive play and leadership. During the first game of the championship series, he was taken down, and his leg snapped upon impact with the boards. From his hospital bed, Mathieu watched his team go on to win it all.
Adrift in anger, resentment, and the new direction of his life, he returns to his mansion along the St. Lawrence River. Alone and sulking, Mathieu is not prepared for Indigo Neu to enter his life. The genderflux twenty-year-old botany major signs on to play nursemaid, confidant, and groundskeeper over the summer and slowly leads Mathieu out of his confusion––one tender smile and touch at a time.
The deeper Mathieu falls, the more he wonders if being lost might not be so bad after all.

Mathieu is the captain of his hockey team the Buffalo Surge. Watching his team go all the way, lying in a hospital bed. All his hard work and dreams of the Stanley Cup gone, because of broken bones. Lost in his pain all he wants to do is go home and wallow in the pity party he has going.
High on pain killers he meets his caretakers son Indigo. He is drawn to the stunning young man in the blue checkered dress. His reaction to him a reason to not take any more pills. He is in the closet, door firmly shut. Indigo quickly starts opening that door a tiny sliver at a time. Mat is entranced with him. He admits to Indigo that he is gay, the first person he has told his secret to.
Their time together is difficult for Mat. This beautiful captivating man has him tied up in knots. Wanting him forever, but so afraid of what that future would mean to his life, he screws it up. Losing Indigo guts him even worse than losing hockey. He’ll just have to fix it.
I enjoyed this book so much. Indigo leapt off the page. I swear I could almost smell his scent he was that real. Together the men made a interesting pair. Mat’s gruff exterior combined with his soft loving center. Indigo’s incandescence and total love for Mat. Very nice supporting cast (with one exception, but she jumped off the page too). Nice story!
