USA TODAY BESTSELLER • Hailed by Jami Davenport as her “go-to author for hockey romance,” the bestselling author of the Heller Brothers Hockey series sets the ice ablaze with another sexy novel featuring the gorgeous men of the Chicago Aces. Duncan Armstrong may be an NHL star, but he’s a country boy at heart. His ultimate fantasy is going home with the Stanley Cup, not a gold-digging airhead who aspires to be a trophy wife and nothing more. Newly single and hoping to enjoy a night out with his teammates, he ends up hitting it off with a down-to-earth waitress who’s a complete breath of fresh air—until Duncan learns that she’s a part-time model. He tries to forget about her, but their sizzling chemistry has him coming back for more. Amber is working hard to put herself through school, and has zero interest in dating a professional athlete. She’s seen firsthand how fame and fortune can mess with their heads—her father’s brilliant football career ended in a firestorm of addiction and infidelity. So Duncan’s attentions immediately have her on the defensive. Still, there’s something different about him. And once she stops trying to freeze him out, irresistible temptation turns into all-consuming passion. Advance praise for Icing “With chemistry that melts the ice, this novel had me rushing into the zone to finish before the whistle blew. I really enjoyed it!”—Toni Aleo, New York Times bestselling author of the Assassins series“You’d better wear gloves when you read this book, because the heat will burn your fingers. The chemistry between Amber and Duncan is off the charts!”—Christi Barth, author of Risking It All Praise for Kelly Jamieson and her Aces Hockey series “A sweet story with plenty of heart about that bad boy you always wanted, who couldn’t wait to have you too.”—Award-winning author Cecy Robson, on Off Limits “Steamy, sweet, and a whole lot of fun! I loved Major Misconduct!”—USA Today bestselling author Serena Bell Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
It’s no secret, Hockey Romance is my ultimate guilty pleasure! So when I saw Book #2 in the Kelly Jamieson Chicago Aces series? I was so excited!!! (Thank you Netgalley for the chance to read and review this one!!)
**Disclaimer** I have to disclose that once I was approved for this one? Life flipped upside down and I’m incredibly late reading and reviewing it! I actually ended up buying the audible version so that I could listen while I clean/travel/work! So that’s why this review is so late! But the book was so amazing? I’m disappointed that it took me so darn long to read it!!
Oh man… Duncan and Amber are amazing!!! They both have perfect reasons for not wanting to get involved with the other, yet their chemistry is undeniable!! And add in the amazing secondary characters? (And the main setting of the Sin Bin Bar??? Which I totally wish was a real place!) There’s no way this book couldn’t be a huge hit!!
It’s rare that there’s a book that I just can’t put down, but Icing was most definitely one of those books! I started it at 6am, while walking my dog, and didn’t put it down until I was done. (And thus, I’m kicking myself for taking so darn long to read this book because it is so phenomenal!)
