He’s Fire on Ice and she’s afraid to get burned again…
“You always think a guy is going to be different until he’s not.”
Firestorm Center Kian Kavanagh dominates the ice like a rock star dominates the stage. He’s the hottest new player to be recruited for the Firestorm, a newly established professional hockey team in Northern Arizona.
After Taylor Thompson’s heart was completely shattered by her high school’s most popular jock, she vowed never to date another athlete. And she keeps that promise through her first three years of college by putting up impenetrable walls to protect her from heartbreak.
But after a chance meeting with the charming and irresistible Kian Kavanagh, Taylor’s carefully constructed walls are in serious danger of being burned down by Mr. Fire on Ice.
Kian Kavanaugh is used to women throwing themselves at them. But when he meets Taylor Thompson, studying at a bar, he falls head over heels for her. She doesn’t throw herself at him – in fact, she wants nothing to do with him. He finds her fascinating and intriguing, and can’t wait to know her better.
But after an ex-boyfriend hurting her and ruining her reputation, Taylor wants nothing to do with hockey players, so Kian is about as off-limits as it can get. But every time they meet, sparkles fly in every direction, and when he asks her out on a date, she can’t refuse.
Their relationship is complicated because of their past, but their attraction toward each other is undeniable. Will they be together at the end of this emotional roller coaster ride?
The book was written really well, in a simple writing style that suits the genre and can appeal to everyone. The characters had distinct personalities. I loved Taylor, who seemed so vulnerable, but I also liked Kian, who was protective and strong.
This was a great romantic read, and I’d recommend it to all romance fans.
