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?

I liked Nolan when he was introduced in Destiny on Ice (which I loved btw) and I was excited to get his story. It was obvious that he had his life together, but as the story delved deeper into his character, I soon realized that it was all an act. He was building something good with Lainey, but as soon as feelings started to grow deeper and she started getting serious with him, he froze her out and sabotaged their relationship. Months later he realizes his mistake and tries to get her back in his bed. However, despite Lainey truly having deep feelings for him, he's been friend-zoned.

I really loved Lainey and Nolan's "friendship". It was funny to see them try to avoid their undeniable chemistry to one another to keep things strictly platonic. I knew that there had to be some past hurt to make Nolan the way he was and I was happy with the way the author wrote Lainey's character, making her as honest and open and awesome as could be. How long could Nolan resist?

Although I didn't love this book as much as I loved the first one, it was still an amazing story and it was great seeing everyone again. Benny's story is next and I know that boy has been fighting some serious demons. I can't wait to read the book that will be created for him.
