Luke Madden is well on his way to becoming a National Hockey League sensation. If being drafted first pick overall by the Calgary Flames isn't enough, the Toronto-born icon is every bit as charming as he is skilled; he's an amazing person both on and off the ice, full of leadership, integrity, and empathy. The future looks bright for twenty-year-old Luke Madden.
Five years later, Luke is now the captain of the Calgary Flames, breaking team franchise records, and making his mark on the NHL community. Then, one night, when the Battle of Alberta is taking place at Roger's Place in Edmonton, Luke is taken down by a hit that started out as fair but ended dirty.
Now the twenty-five-year-old is facing the worst news of his life. With the injuries he sustained from that hit, Luke could be permanently benched.
Rosalina Walker is a tough girl with a rough past. After enduring her parent's divorce, she swore off purposeful romances for good. Rather than risking someone cheating on her and breaking her heart, Rosalina would prefer the whole "friends-with-benefits" concept. Even if her sister and her sister's fiancé are proof that love can, in fact, conquer all.
Fresh out of university with a degree in physical therapy, Rosalina makes a spontaneous decision and moves to Toronto to take advantage of a job opportunity. For the first couple of months, it works out well. Not only does she see her sister more often, but she's beginning to feel like she belongs somewhere.
That is until Luke Madden is admitted into the physical rehab centre she works at and is assigned as her patient. Due to his fear of losing hockey as a career, Luke is stubborn and seemingly arrogant about letting Rosalina treat him. But, as time passes, things begin to blossom between Luke and Rosalina.
The big question is: Will they make it?
Or will they face the same fate as Rosalina's parents?
