Destiny on Ice:
Hot hockey superstar Brent Oliver has it all—good looks, charm, dozens of endorsement deals, and a spectacular career.

Uh, nix that last one.

Brent has the talent and skill that should have his career soaring. But something is wrong. He’s lost his hockey mojo and can’t get it back.

Enter Aubrey Shelburne, life coach to the stars.

Aubrey’s worked with some difficult celebrities, but she’s never encountered a guy quite like Brent Oliver.

Or has she?

Seems a reckless night of partying, one that had Aubrey waking up in a strange man’s bed, is about to bite her in the ass. That is, if Brent doesn’t first.

Fighting an off-the-charts attraction, Aubrey and Brent must learn to work together. But it’s not an easy task when they’re at each other’s throats every minute.

Is this relationship a disaster in the making?

Or is it destiny?

Washboard abs and sex toy mishaps aside, Destiny on Ice is a fun and irreverent romp that’ll have you swooning on one page and laughing on the next.

Resistance on Ice:
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.

Complications on Ice:
Fun-loving professional hockey player Benjamin “Benny” Perry is all about scoring, both on and off the ice. With his good looks and easygoing personality, women flock to him, which is great. It keeps things the way this Las Vegas Wolves forward likes—uncomplicated.

Too bad that’s all about to change.

When Benny decides to get back at his coach by pursuing his daughter, Eliza, who’s just returned to town under mysterious circumstances, complications abound. What begins as a simple conquest becomes anything but when Benny starts to really fall for Eliza.

But something is up.

Though Eliza seems to be as into him as he is to her, Benny senses she’s hiding something.

Or maybe she’s hiding someone.

Benny would never guess Eliza is hiding a baby—her baby. But it doesn’t end there. The father of her child just happens to be a hockey player too. And he’s Benny’s biggest nemesis.

Now he’s joining the team. Talk about complicated!

Complications on Ice is the 3rd standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

Conto que esta opinião seja curta. Se pudesse dizer simplesmente para não lerem os livros porque não valem a pena seria isso mesmo que faria. Mas acho que uma explicação é sempre simpática e por isso aqui vai.

O problema dos três livros é essencialmente o mesmo. Sexo, sexo e mais sexo sem qualquer tipo de conteúdo. Estes não são livros em que as pessoas até se podem sentir atraídas uma pela outra e dão uma cambalhota e depois existe um desenvolvimento. Não. Estes são daqueles livros em que os personagens se sentem atraídos, dão uma cambalhota e continuam a dar cambalhotas. E só porque andam às cambalhotas decidem que se amam e que não sabem viver um sem o outro e que blá blá blá.

Please bitch! Dêem-me pelo menos algum conteúdo! Personagens interessantes com justificações plausíveis para de vez em quando agirem como completas idiotas em vez de com um cérebro. Dêem-me momentos em que existe uma conexão sentimental e psicológica entre os personagens além de física. Dêem-me um momento em que vemos que o personagem está a analisar as suas atitudes e chega à conclusão que o que fez foi errado. Este livro não tem anda disso, e por isso mais uma vez volto a dizer que é só sexo, sexo, sexo e mais sexo. E nem é assim um sexo tão interessante quanto isso. Mais, a parte do desporto ficou um bocadinho posta de parte. Acho que se podia ter visto mais.

Além disso o facto de dizerem especificamente que o Benny gosta de raparigas mais novas, fez-me imensa confusão. Ele tem 28 anos, se me recordo correctamente, e gosta de andar com miúdas mais novas, sendo o requisito que sejam pelo menos maiores de idade. Não é por nada, mas a maneira como nos é transmitida essa informação na história, e o facto de ele depois ficar com uma rapariga de 21 anos fizeram-me sentir que toda a situação era um bocadinho creepy e desconfortável.

É daquelas séries que possivelmente vou lendo conforme for saindo só mesmo por teimosia.
