Everything We Are by Darby Blake & Sienna Ray
Publication date: June 21st 2022
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Sports

Book Description:

Thea Jenson has her future meticulously planned out. Graduate from college. Get a job. Marry her high school sweetheart and have two beautiful children. When she decides to transfer schools, her brother suggests she move in with him and his unruly hockey roommates. Everything in her life is going according to her plan . . .

. . . until she bumps into Kyler in their kitchen and sparks fly.

Kyler Rose, the starting center for the Northport University hockey team, is done for the moment he lays his eyes on Thea. But he can’t allow her to become a distraction. He’s determined to make it to the NHL. That’s if he doesn’t get booted for failing grades first. And even though he’s on scholarship, it doesn’t pay his bills or provide for his family. Neither do the tips he earns from his bartending gig. When an offer to make some fast cash falls in his lap, he takes it, thinking no one will care if he gets hurt . . .

. . . except Thea does care.

But just as Kyler finds a way to navigate his feelings for Thea, an unexpected link to his family comes to light and he finds himself in the fight of his life to protect those he loves the most – his family.

Sneak Peek into the Book Contents: 


[EXCERPT 2 – Kyler]

“Last call,” I holler out and prepare for the rush of people coming to the bar. It’s Thursday
night, and for the most part, quiet. I know a few kids from school who are hanging out, but
the rest of the crowd are summer stragglers, determined to extend their vacation by a couple
more nights. I can’t say I blame them. The idea of starting classes next week is daunting, and
I’m not looking forward to the Monday through Friday hassle of having to study, sit through
lectures, and prepare for the upcoming hockey season.
People start to leave. The regulars tell me goodbye, and some wish me good luck. I’ve
spent countless hours talking to them about school and hockey. They’ll come to the games
when they start, and most will show up when our Blue Line Club has some event where fans
can come meet the players. Some forget I’ll be working up until hockey season starts, and
then my days will vary. Even though I’m on a scholarship, I still have to work. The “full-
ride” offer schools give is pretty much a joke. Granted, they pay for my schooling, on-
campus food, and books, but that’s it. If I need clothes, a damn snack, or gas for my car—it’s
all on me. Most of the guys on the team still get an allowance from their parents. No such
luck when it comes to my parents. Actually, just a parent. My dad bailed when I was two,
leaving my mom to raise my sister and me on a very limited income. To say I grew up on the
struggle bus would be an understatement, and I’m only where I am because of sponsors.
There’s no way in hell my mom would’ve been able to afford to keep me in the hockey
programs without programs aimed at helping underprivileged kids.
A hottie comes up to the bar with her empty martini glass. She’s been in town for two
weeks, taking advantage of the late season sales, which are meant to increase tourism in
Northport. “Hey,” she says in what should sound like a sultry voice but comes off as raspy
and a bit too loud because of all the extra bar noise.

“Manhattan?” I ask her as I take her empty glass and set it with the others I need to wash.
When I turn back to her, she’s leaning on the bar with her breasts pushed together. After two
weeks of trying, the answer will still be “no” from me.
