- Goodreads Synopsis -
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.
OMG I have no idea what to even write right now! I am at a loss of words for how intense and hot this book was! I am a sucker for a steamy romance story but you throw in some hockey and I am HOOKED!
Resistance On Ice is the second book in the Boys of Winter series. Yes, this book is a part of a series but it can also be read as a standalone. In this book we are introduced to Nolan, a hockey player for the Las Vegas Wolves, and Lainey, a young woman he is very fond of! Nolan and Lainey have so much keeping them apart but they have so much more keeping them together. This book will sweep you up and entangle you in the lives of these two and their friends. Once I picked up this book.. I could not put it down! I stayed up reading until way past my bedtime! I love Nolan and Lainey and I just could not end their story until it was over.
I know I have said it before and I will say it a million times.. S.R. Grey is an amazing writer and her books just get better and better! She wrote this book in both Lainey's and Nolan's point of view, which I love. I love being able to get inside multiple characters heads. It really helps the reader understand the characters more and gives them special insight on the story and what is happening.
Nolan is 100% book boyfriend material! The way he tries to win over Lainey is so romantic. He really is her knight in shining armor! He is always there when Lainey needs him and the two just simply belong together! You guys are not going to want to miss this romance! You definitely have to check out this book if you are curious about the two and their relationship. S.R. Grey will not let you guys down, I promise! Her books never disappoint! Her writing style is so addicting and you will be a forever fan once you pick up one of her books! Her writing is so descriptive and vivid but also funny and lovable. Grey had me laughing one second and crying another!
Besides the romance, and the fact that this series was written by one of my favorite authors, I absolutely love the fact that it is written around hockey! I LOVE HOCKEY! I have never read any other books like this before!
