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!

MY REVIEW

Sexy, sweet, funny and cute are the types of words I think of whenever I read a book from S.R. Grey, especially the ones in her Boys of Winter series. Who doesn’t love a story about a hot hockey playboy who becomes a reformed manwhore? I’ve loved Benjamin “Benny” Perry ever since I met him in Destiny on Ice. At one point, he was an addict and his drug of choice was alcohol. Oh and women. However, his drinking days were in his past thanks to meetings and his sponsor (a man who I hope gets his own book too!). The puck bunnies were another story, especially since he found it hard to let go of his “little black book”. Eliza was the coach’s daughter and was most definitely off limits. She had a bunch of secrets but they weren’t going to stop her from pursuing her latest crush - Benny. The chemistry and connection between these two characters was too hard to resist… complications be damned.

Benny was awesome. He was a fun-loving, overgrown softie with a heart of gold. I couldn’t get enough of him and his POV. It was strangely insightful, evocative, quirky, humorous and sweet. As for Eliza… She was a character I found it immensely difficult to get behind. I’m not a fan of people who play games, keep secrets, and lie in order to play their games and keep their secrets. I get that it was all to add to the angst of the story. These secrets were what built this story up and made for the basis of her character, however, the deceptions carefully and methodically drove me nuts. However, her biggest secret was also her biggest accomplishment and helped to give her character credibility. So I may not have loved her or liked her much, but I definitely accepted her for Benny’s sake.

If you’re a fan of any sort of sports romance, with a charismatic hero who is everything a book boyfriend should be and who you can’t help but fall for and a heroine that doesn’t hesitate to go after what or who she wants, then you’ll love Complications on Ice as much as I do. Take a chance on Benny. You won’t regret it!
