She fought battles for others… and never expected someone to wage a war for her.

Calm. Calculating. Disciplined.

Xander Maxwell thrives on controlling his emotions. The ruthless hockey player leaves it all on the ice but is levelheaded outside the rink. Until he comes face to face with his estranged father’s beautiful young bride.

Jordan—a walking wet dream with heart-stopping curves, a sunshine smile, golden hair, and bright blue eyes.

He shouldn’t be enticed. His only goal is to no longer live under his father’s thumb. It doesn’t matter that Jordan is the most beautiful woman on earth or that she radiates like the sun itself.

There is only one problem. She is everywhere—in his thoughts, in every bone, even in his blood. She has snuck into his dreams, and he can’t wrench her out.


Successful, affectionate, and warm.

Jordan Banks makes a career out of selling the perfect life. With clients consisting of the wealthy and famous elite, there is no room for error. Perfection is everything, especially to her controlling husband.

The only part of her life she hasn’t perfected is the one that matters the most—family.

When Xander returns home after years, it’s an opportunity to cement the close-knit family dynamic she has always craved. After all, she is closer to him in age than her husband.

The unlikely bond she forges with Xander isn’t part of the plan, though. Nor does she expect to see the same suffocating loneliness reflected in his eyes, the one she’s found within her marriage.

But their undeniable connection comes at a cost. A series of devastating secrets comes to light, shattering her not-so-perfect life and leaving only Xander to shield her from the glancing blows.

Jordan is used to fighting battles for her clients but it’s Xander who wages a war for her.

Xander is a steamy reverse age-gap hockey romance. This book is inspired by Helen of Troy. It includes explicit content and only recommend for mature readers.
