Hockey is my life. And it’s a great one. There’s an endless line of women, and I get to hang with my best friend Oli. Everything is perfect until she shows up. Oli’s twin sister, Flynn...hates my guts. I don’t blame her. I’m part of one of the worst nights of her life.

Now she’s next door and seeing her every day is killing me slowly. I wonder if we can ever get back to being friends. The way she looks at me sometimes, well, let’s just say my hockey stick isn’t the only thing that’s feeling hard these days.

But if she finds out the secrets I’m keeping, forgiveness will be the last thing on her mind.


"A sexy NHL player, a sassy heroine, and a heartfelt romance that kept me engaged from beginning to end!" — NYT bestseller Mia Sheridan

“I absolutely loved this book! A great story, romance, and hockey players? I'm in!” -Lori Z., Goodreads

Big Stick comes bearing many wonderful gifts for readers; as mentioned in the title you will find a hockey player who wields a big stick on the ice (and off), but he also has a big heart full of love for a woman who he foolishly let slip through his fingertips, and now that she is living next door again he has big plans to score her heart once and for all! I have to say this one might just be one of my all time favorite first reads ever.” -Misty P., Goodreads

“It was innocent, hot, and filled with just the right amount of sexy. Big Stick exceeded my expectations and I adore it with all my heart!” -Till The Last Page Blog

Big Stick is more than high flying innuendos. It's about taking risks both on and off the ice. Stephens appeals to the vulnerabilities. The emotions that haunt our ever waking moments. Myles and Flynn have to look beyond Neverland and face the real world. Big Stick is a dialogue of the heart. A captivating tale of survival and second chances.” -Isha C., Goodreads

Big Stick is a luscious salivating read that had me hooked by the second page! The heroine is super feisty and perfect for the ever so darn cocky alpha male in this book! I absolutely loved every single minute of this book.” -Ash L., Goodreads

Big Stick is an addictive read that will take you on an emotional ride. For someone that is not a fan of hockey, I sure can't pass up a hockey story, and I am so glad that's the case because this story is absolutely worth reading.

About the author

R.C. Stephens

As far back as R.C. Stephens can remember she was a sucker for a good romance. Of course there had to be a prince charming even if he ultimately was a dark knight and there had to be a happy ending. She watched the movie Dirty Dancing way too many times growing up and Jean Claude Van Damme movies too. Go figure! After years of saying she would write a book one day, she finally put pen to paper and carved out the plot line for what would eventually become the best selling Twisted Series. Now R.C. is just finishing up her tenth book and can’t seem to stop the stories running through her mind. Visit R.C. on her Facebook page to find out what’s new in her life and what releases she has coming up.
