Resistance On Ice {Book Review}

Title: Resistance on Ice
Series: Boys of Winter #2
Author: S.R. Grey
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy

Book Description:

Praised by Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills as &the usual Grey crisp writing, lovable heroes that you kinda want to slap, and a heroine that doesn't back down,& Resistance on Ice is another fun standalone novel in the Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

Hockey star Nolan Solvenson is nothing short of skilled perfection, both on and off the ice. Or so everyone thinks. His teammates are constantly hitting him up for advice, but really, when it comes to his own life, Nolan can't seem to make the right moves anymore.

Blame it all on Lainey Shelburne, a woman he wants but is determined to keep at arm’s length. That’s why, after a few sexy encounters, he unceremoniously blows her off.

When they’re reunited, facing off against the fiery cocktail waitress becomes the challenge of his life. Lainey is furious with him for dumping her and wants nothing more than to kick him in the junk. But Nolan—typical man—is only interested in getting Lainey back in his bed.

That plan is shot all to hell when they reach a shaky truce and Lainey drops the bomb that all she’s looking for now is a &just friends& relationship with Nolan.

Take that, Mr. Hot Right Winger!

Suddenly, the &know-it-all& athlete is skating on thin ice as he tries to hide his burgeoning feelings from the one woman who has the ability to thaw his heart. But is Lainey willing to try a relationship with him again? Can Nolan resist the urge to walk away?

Resistance on Ice is a fun standalone novel and the second installment in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

My Review

      This is the first book I have read from Mrs. Grey and the first book I have read in this series. I have to say though I love nothing better than a good hockey romance. There used to not to be a lot of them out there, but within the last couple of years there have been more coming out. And nothing makes me happier than that!!!!! 

     I thought these characters Nolan and Lainey were very likable and at times very funny. Nolan and Lainey are No Strangers to each other, they had been secret lovers for months before splitting. Until they both realize they both want to be with each other. There were a few times I did roll my eyes at them though.

      I will say this about this book, probably the only downside to it. And its not just this book, but a lot of sports themed books I've been reading lately. Whether it be Baseball or Hockey, but I've missed the team commodore. I mean you see the team and a few of them interact. But at times I just don't feel the togetherness. Maybe I need to go and read the first one and see if I feel it more and that one.

       I'm giving this book 4 Star out of 5!!!!!
