ZoeWhen you grow up surrounded by hockey players you know one thing for sure: you should never settle down with one. And I was never going to. Heck, I didn’t even know what icing was. I was too busy climbing the corporate ladder, becoming one of the most successful realtors in New York City.I wasn’t interested in dating or anything that got in my way. First, he was my client, and then he became my friend.ViktorMy parents told me I skated before I walked. When I was eighteen, I was drafted into the NHL third overall, playing in Los Angeles—the city of dreams. What more could I ask for? I played hard, but eventually, I partied even harder.Five years later, I was traded a week after I entered rehab. There was no time for anything except my health and making sure I’d come out on top. I had to be better. There wasn’t another option.One of the rules of recovery was “don’t fall in love,” and I made it a top priority. She was off-limits in every single way…until it was too late. One night, one decision, one act can derail everything.
