The second in my Hot Ice series has just received a wonderful Top Pick review from Miz Love Loves Books - check it out...
Review by Miz Management
Brick has the perfect name. It suits his actions on the ice—hard and unforgiving—but it also brings to mind that if he’s treated right, under good conditions, he can last a lifetime. Don’t be fooled by his gruffness, his couldn’t-care-less attitude, because he does care—a lot. He’s been misunderstood in the past and just needed to find the right woman.
Enter Carly, an Olympic athlete, a cyclist who is determined to not only keep up her training and be the best at what she does, but also to have Brick in her bed. This isn’t just a fantasy where she has him for one night and that’s that, but a lifelong commitment—if she can have it. She’s watched him a long time, on TV, in the newspapers, and her lust for him grows every day.
When herself and Brick, among other sports stars, join together for charity, Carly finds herself in Brick’s life a lot faster than she could ever have hoped. He likes to call the shots in bed, that much is certain, but Carly wants to show the man that a woman can be just as dominant. Their sexual exploits are hot, very steamy, and you won’t be disappointed.
Just as you think someone else will steal Brick away, when you think the book is winding down, a curveball comes along that makes Brick and Carly realise that they aren’t playing any kind of game anymore. It’s serious. Both want the other for keeps. With Carly’s fear of flying, and Brick accommodating that by driving for miles, that man was firmly cemented (I couldn’t resist the pun!) in my heart.
I turned sharply and came face to chest with Brick. (Whoa! You get to see here just how big he is.)
“Yeah, but don’t you just wish you were full…”
My fingers were so small in comparison to his big knuckles and wide bones.
I want to be that froth.
“It’s an abuse of muscle, that’s what it is.”
Also, the studio scene. Very funny yet at the same time I could imagine their mortification.
A great read where you see even the rich and famous fall in love exactly the same way we do. They hope, they fear, they wish, have insecurities, pasts to get over, things to get through, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time reading Cross-Checked.
I am completely thrilled with this review as it comes hot on the heels of a great write up from Joyfully Reviewed yesterday -
