A Bookworm Review by Ana
Player on Ice
I give this book 5 stars!
When everyone is against you you can’t give up. Fight for what you believe.
Have a look at the blurb:
Jaxon Holland is more than a top-scoring center for the Las Vegas Wolves—he’s also the biggest “player” on the team. Women love him, flock to him, lust for his sculpted body.
Yeah, life is good for this hockey player.
Or it was until lately.
After blowing a key play in what may have been the biggest game of the season, the fans sour on Jaxon. Good thing memories are short, right? Uh, they’re not when a widely popular sports blogger, known simply as Mr. Hockeypants, calls Jaxon out and places all the blame for the loss on him.
Life goes from bad to worse, and Jaxon wants to get away.
Good thing one of his teammates has a beautiful, secluded beach house he can escape to. Sand, sun, surf, and lots of alone time sound good to this disgruntled centerman.
Only problem is the beach house is already occupied—by beautiful and spunky Cara Milne.
Cara and Jaxon are off to a rocky start after an extremely awkward first meeting. Yeah, these two pretty much hate each other. But Jaxon, forever a “player” at heart, vows to win his housemate over.
What he doesn’t know is Cara is Mr. Hockeypants! His worst enemy, the bane of his existence!
And she’s determined that he never finds out.
Too bad keeping a secret is more slippery than ice, especially when you start falling in love with the guy you almost destroyed.
Player on Ice is the fifth standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.
**EACH BOOK IN THE BOYS OF WINTER SERIES FEATURES A DIFFERENT SMOKING-HOT HOCKEY PLAYER’S STORY**
It’s been a while since I had the chance to read a book from this author and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve really loved her previous works and that left me wanting more and more. And let’s not forget the fact that this new book is the continuation of a series I love.
S. R. Grey knows what she’s doing. This series has knock me out and I was anxiously waiting for this new gift. Her writing is hot and wild, with so much meaning and feelings between each chapter. Once you start it’s can assure you won’t be able to stop.
Player on Ice is her latest release and it’s the fifth book from the Boys of Winter series. Dayum… What a series… What a cover…
This book explores the lifes of Jaxon and Cara.
Jaxon had it all, an amazing career on Ice, fame, ladies and money but one bad play and he’s hated by all fans. All that made him want to get away to a secluded place, more specifically a beach. But once he’s in there he’s not the only one…
Cara is a feisty girl determined to succeed. She doesn’t back out from a challenge. She’s a blogger that can work from home so she takes her friend request to go on a well deserved vacations. But she wasn’t expecting running into Jaxon.
This could be a sweet encounter, wasn’t for the fact that she was the blogger who trashed his name after that bad play… And now…
Oh lord, I couldn’t be happier with this book. These two are one of a kind.
The plot is amazing, very well written, super engaging and powerful. The interaction between the characters started bumpy but it changed with every flip of a page.
It was insane the way these two interact with each other. I laughed so hard but I also wanted to hurt someone… Jesus, these two are super stubborn. And the sexual tension between them… Oh boy…
Can secrets become a problem? Can you forgive and forget and go from there?
S. R. I missed your books. I’m so glad for the chance to read this one and I can’t wait for the next one.
Will it take to long? Please say no.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
A Few Teasers:
“Wow, you look rather happy all of a sudden,” he says.
“I am, Jaxon.” I reply. “I am.”
“Does this mean you reached a resolution?”
“I sure have. I decided to stop with all the overthinking and just go with what my heart’s been telling me to do for a long time now.”
Ooh, now he looks really curious.
“What does that mean?” he asks, our eyes meeting.
I take a deep breath, and then blurt out in a rush of words, “It means I’m tired of fighting the inevitable.”
His eyes bore into me, and I swear he already knows what I mean. He knows I’m referring to him…to us.
Swallowing hard, he steps out from behind the kitchen counter, looking gorgeous, as always. His hair’s a little damp, making it darker than the usual sandy-brown shade. He’s wearing khaki shorts and a royal blue tee, which shows off his bronze skin perfectly. Jaxon’s tan, like me, but so very buff, so freaking hard.
I watch his defined leg muscles flex as he takes a purposeful step toward me.
When he’s less than a foot away, he stops and rasps, “So what is your heart telling you to do at this very moment, Cara?”
I stare at his bare feet, tan like the rest of him.
Then I glance up, chuckling nervously. “Uh, it’s telling me to do a lot of things.”
He whispers, “Name just one.”
Just as softly, I respond, “Well, right now, my heart’s telling me those burgers can wait.”
He cocks a brow. “And…?”
“Hey, you said I only had to name one.”
He shrugs, smirking. “I lied. Tell me one more.”
It’s time to be more honest with him than I’ve been with myself.
I take a deep breath, then say, “My heart’s telling me I should kiss the heck out of you right now…since you’re so freaking close.”
“Shit, sweetheart.” He smiles. “I agree. Your heart is abso-fucking-lutely right.”
Months of confusion reach a moment of clarity. And there’s no stopping us from coming together now.
So we do….
