Lindsay Wilson has spent her entire life protecting her five younger siblings. At eighteen, she knew the man she’d devote her life to, but when he left her, her passion dimmed. Engrossing herself in her small business and jumping from guy to guy could only distract her for so long.

Six years later, Lindsay and Finn’s paths cross yet again. The reunion is less than ideal, both unhappy and unfulfilled in their personal lives. Lindsay’s barriers begin to crumble as Finn discovers she’s not the same girl he left behind. They try to avoid each other, but sometimes life forces you to face your past mistakes to make them right. Can their love survive a second chance?
In this inspiring tale of true love and loss, Finn and Lindsay discover each other and find their forever.

LINDSAY AND FINN INTERVIEW
Before For The Love of Hockey takes place
1. What is your greatest achievement?
Lindsay: I would definitely say the biggest thing I’ve ever done was open up my boutique store, The Wilson Wardrobe. I did an internship in New York City after college, and learned so much from my mentor. When I came back to take care of my siblings I decided that I didn’t want to work for anyone. I started searching for clothes I liked and stockpiled them in my tiny apartment and when I had enough inventory, I opened with my best friend, Janell.
Finn: Competing in the last winter Olympics. I was the youngest player on the team, and I was on the second line, but I scored a goal against Canada and I swear, there is no feeling like scoring in a high pressure game. And the Olympics is the top of the competition. There’s no where up from there.
2. Who is the greatest love of your life?
Lindsay: Well, that’s a little personal. I’m single, and I have been for six years. I don’t believe in true love. I love my siblings a lot, more than any guy. That’s it. Just my siblings and I.
Finn: Lindsay Wilson. She was my high school sweetheart, and I had to let her go. Well, I didn’t have to, but at the time I thought it was the right thing to do. She needed to stay with her siblings and I needed to become a hockey star. But I still love her, and I probably always will.
3. What is your greatest fear?
Lindsay: Being alone or not needed.
Finn: Being alone. Not being enough for someone.
4. Who is the one person you most despise?
Lindsay: Finnley Jacobs. *Shrugs* Sorry, is that mean?
Finn: I don’t despise anyone. Life’s too short to have hate in your heart.
5. What is your biggest regret?
Lindsay: Trusting someone who didn’t deserve it. I learned my lesson, and ever since, I protect myself. My brain comes first and feelings come second. Ever since, my business has been booming and my life is back on track. I had a lapse once when I thought I could take life by the pants and run around, following someone I thought I loved. But now I understand how stupid I was.
Finn: Letting her go six years ago. I did it for the both of us, but now I think I should’ve been selfish and kept her to myself.
6. What’s a quality you look for most in a woman/man?
Lindsay: Communication. I don’t like being blindsided.
7. Which living person do you most admire?
Lindsay: I don’t have a lot of admirable people around me. If I had to pick someone, I’d say my youngest sister Lilly. We didn’t have an easy life, but I swear to god, she’s going to be President some day. She’s inspiring to anyone.
Finn: My dad. He inspired me, pushed me, and supported me my whole life.
8. If you could change one trait about yourself, what would it be?
Lindsay: Too-trusting. I’ve been trying to change that about myself, but it’s a long process.
Finn: Goal-driven. It’s worked in my advantage my entire life, but lately it just seems like I need to stop and breathe and think. I missed a lot of time because I was so focused on hockey.
9. If you died and came back as an animal, what would you be?
Lindsay: Momma lion. I protect those I love fiercely but you screw with me once, and your ass is dead.
Finn: Penguin. I’m a little fun, love the cold, but can’t fly. Actually, I don’t know why I said penguin, but I just feel like it suits me. There’s something trusting and loving and cute about a penguin. That’s me.
10. What is your most treasured possession?
Lindsay: My store. I don’t really have a lot of objects I love or remind me of past events. My childhood wasn’t exactly ideal. The only thing I have that is truly mine is my store. I love everything about it.
Finn: The hockey stick I used my senior year of highschool. Not only did I have one of the best athletic performances that year, but it reminds me of quieter times, happier times. I didn’t have the stressed I do back then. The stick reminds me of someone, too.
“I thought you were avoiding me because you were scared.”
She scoffed. “Scared of what?”
“Me. You’ve always been scared of me. And I get it. I’m fucking scared of you, too.”
“I’m not scared of you, asshole. I hate you!” She shoved me, her hands pressing against my hard chest. I was heated, my heart pumping way too fast and my veins full of adrenaline. I grabbed her hands and held them against me. She frowned and tried to pull back, but failed.
“You don’t hate me. Just like I don’t hate you.”
“I hate you,” she whispered, seething as her blue eyes became glassy with tears. I didn’t want to make her cry. I just wanted her to understand. She needed to see my side. Her forgiveness meant the world to me. Her friendship was the only thing that could help me move on.
“Then I hate you, too.” I moved closer so our noses nearly touch. The air became charged, my dick rose, and I could taste her breath on my tongue. I could barely breathe the air was so thick.
“I hate you, Finn. Don’t you get it?” she whispered again, but her words didn’t even register in my mind. I just kept my eyes locked on hers as I held her so close, teasing myself. She was the one person, the one thing, I ever loved more than hockey. And one decision ruined the entire course of my life.
