    Summary

    If Kent Parson had one thing going for him, it was that most people didn’t see past the neon-bright surface. Like Vegas herself, the illusion was all he thought he wanted them to see. But when someone completely unexpected finds their way into his shadows, Kent can no longer deny that they exist… or how much he’s ached for someone that could banish them.

    Summary

    Everybody knew that psychics and palm readers and fortune tellers were really all just cons: reading people’s subtle cues and making pronouncements just vague enough that people would believe they were real. Kent Parson wasn’t going to believe anything the tarot reader said when he finally gave in to the impulse to see what so many other people fell for. He wasn’t.

    He could never have guessed what would be in the cards: either in his reading, or in the hand that life would deal him afterwards.

    Summary

    Kent Parson has a lot going on. He's in the NHL, he's closeted, his ex just came out on national TV, and the only creature that knows just how unhappy he is is his cat, Kit Purrson.

    He just wanted a quiet year, where he could fight his constant self-doubt, lead his team back to the Stanley Cup, and maybe have decent anonymous hook-up or two.

    Instead, he gets teammates forcing him to be friends, media hounding him about his past and Jack Zimmerman's big gay kiss, and a peaceful cat cafe with a cute owner.

    Summary

    Sometimes, when it’s very dark and quiet in his apartment, Kent lets himself cry. He lets himself think about all the people that he has lost, all by his own fault. He knows he doesn’t deserve to feel sorry for himself. But sometimes, he can’t help it.
     

    Or, it gets worse before it gets better.

    Summary

    That winter his mother and father took him and his sister Kat ice skating at Rockefeller center. His parents fought about the price of hot chocolate and his sister cried, but Kent remembers tuning everything out as soon as he set foot on the ice.

    It’d be cliche to say that the rest was history, because it wasn’t. The rest was hard fought, hard won, and made a lot of tough skin.
