The heroine: Lyndsey – Owner of a Bed and Breakfast that Reed Security holed up in after rescuing their women from two gangs of Bikers that were out for blood. The guys took her with when they went to a safe house for her protection, but after returning she discovered everything she owned had been destroyed.
The Hero(es): John Peters (a.k.a. Ice) – He is called ice because he resembles the Iceman from Top Gun, but also because of the cold emotionless way he does his job at Reed Security. He also has a way with the women and he froze his heart long ago and wants to keep it that way.
The Story: Ice lets Lyndsey stay with him in his one bedroom house since she lost everything but the two of them get along like cats and dogs. Lyndsey is resentful of the fact that Ice strong armed her into leaving her home and the fact that it was destroyed.
This was definitely an enemies to lovers story and at first I didn’t like how much they seemed to hate each other. They were definitely attracted to one another but sometimes they were downright mean to each other and not in a way I could see them falling for one another. But as they had to be in close quarters, I saw how they could give in to the attraction and they fought less. Though I still think that Lyndsey was a bit of a shrew sometimes.
A lot of enemies to lovers stories have witty banter between the two main characters. I didn’t find their banter to be witty, just frustrating. Though I can’t say the same for the men of Reed Security. When the guys get together and talk about women and/or their problems with women, it is always hilarious. That is one of the best things about this series and this book was a great example of that.
