Bobby: Thanks for having me!
So, you’re an all-star hockey player?
Bobby: I was but not anymore. A few years back this guy threw an illegal check and destroyed a few discs in my back. The doctors said I’d never play professionally again, and they were right.
That’s awful! What happened to the guy responsible?
Bobby: Let’s put it this way, he’s not playing either.
What do you do then?
Bobby: I’m the head coach for the hockey team at a local high school. The team does amazing; we’re the best team in New England.
You must be busy with coaching a lot of the time and training. How do you make time for a love life?
Bobby: I’m not much for relationships. I’ve kind of been waiting on my best friend to figure out I’m the one for a while.
How’s that going?
Bobby: I don’t get it. She’s pretty deeply infatuated with my kid brother, Adam. I keep trying to get her to see that I can make her happy, when he can’t.
How do you know he can’t?
Bobby (cracks knuckles and raises an eyebrow): He’s not me.
Are you guys a lot different?
Bobby: You could say that. He’s about five inches shorter and about 70 pounds less muscular. His hair’s a bit darker and his eyes…well, they aren’t blue like these. (Winks)
Are you guys similar in any way?
Bobby: Yeah, I’d say so. He’s a great guy—don’t get me wrong. I just don’t want River to see it, or him to realize she loves him.
Bobby: Cause he loves her too.
Sounds like there’s a bit of a rivalry over this River girl.
Bobby: You could say that, but I’ve never lost anything to Adam.
What happens if you lose?
Bobby: I won’t.
I guess you can’t argue with that confidence (Bobby gives a breath-stealing smile).
Bobby Beckerson was the American All-Star hockey player--he was the spitting image of perfection to his family. Goofy, sweet and undeniably gorgeous, he had everything but the one girl he wanted: River Ahlers.
River Ahlers is successful in everything but love. She's been in love with Adam Beckerson since they were kids. Worst of all she's stuck right in the middle of the brother's dueling over everything and anything, and she doesn't even know she's the ultimate prize.
Adam Beckerson was a boy with a guitar, a smile that sunk girl's hearts and a stone wall around his own. He was anything but perfect, and no matter how hard he tried he was nothing compared to Bobby. Sweet, damaged, with boyish good-looks, nobody thought Adam loved anyone but himself.
Bobby loved River, River loved Adam and Adam only loved himself--or so everyone thought. Then one night everything changes, and as it threatens to destroy everyone involved a tragedy strikes that will break them all...
