Destiny On Ice by S.R. Grey

- Goodreads Synopsis -
"Hilarious and perfectly 'played' sports romance that I devoured in one sitting! I can't wait to read more." -#1 NYT Bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken

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.

Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy



The first thing I need to say is that I am a HUGE hockey fan! This book was super exciting for me and I have never read a book like this before! I absolutely love S.R. Grey's books, so when I saw that she wrote a book about romance and hockey, I just about died. This was the most perfect book ever and I can not wait to share my review with you guys and all my hockey loving friends! Do you guys like hockey? If so, leave a comment below with your favorite team!

"Look at him, Lain. I bet your romance authors would have a blast writing about a guy like him." "They would, and they do write about guys like him," she assures me. "All the time in fact. Why do you think I read so much?"

Grey introduces us to a hockey player named Brent. Brent's dad is pretty big in the NHL and Brent has a huge name to live up to. Brent plays for the Las Vegas Wolves, which is a pretty cool name for a hockey team! Going off topic a little.. Las Vegas did just get a hockey team and they are calling themselves the Vegas Golden Knights. While reading this book, I couldn't help but think that the NHL should have let Grey name their hockey team. Las Vegas Wolves sounds pretty badass if you ask me! Back to business, Brent plays along side his two best friends: Nolan and Benny. The Wolves used to be a really hard team to beat, but lately something has been a bit off. The team is requiring Brent to get a life coach. Yup... a life coach, you read that right! That is how we meet Aubrey. Brent and Aubrey have a little tiny bit of history. They had a little confrontation at a party a week prior! You will definitely have to read that part for yourself! I can not spoil that incident for you guys. sorry! Aubrey becoming Brent's life coach changes everything. Will Brent allow Aubrey to be his coach? Is it even up to Brent? Can Aubrey work with a client that once stole her panties? These two are in for a big surprise!

"I hate him, but my hooha disagrees."

S.R. Grey writes such lovely books! I fell in love with her Promises Series and am now falling in love with her Boys Of Winter series! There is something about her writing that just grabs my attention and keeps it! Her sentences are perfectly written, allowing the words to flow smoothly through her readers minds. I love the stories and the characters that Grey creates. Her characters are so complex and easy to relate to. Relatable characters is always a huge plus because the reader can put him or herself in the book along side them. I know I definitely felt like I was right there in Brent's house watching him and Aubrey argue back and fourth.

I totally fell in love with Aubrey! She is so serious yet so funny! Her inner voice had me dying of laughter. That girl thinks about some crazy things. The sexual tension in this book was super intense! I do not think I have ever read a book where the characters wanted each other so badly but took forever to act upon it. Overall, I loved the story, the hockey, the romance, the characters, the drama, and just about everything! This book was a really cute, fun read! I am a sucker for love stories and I can not wait for the rest of this series! I am still in shock and I can not believe that there is actually a hockey romance series! S.R. Grey rocks!
