The heroine(s): Lexie Robertson – she works as a barista in a cool little coffee shop. Her mother died last year and while she was dying she told Lexie that her farther is Brian Brennen, the wealthy owner of the Caroline Cold Fury hockey team. Her half sister is Gray Brennen, Olympic silver medalist in Hockey and now the general manager of the Cold Fury.
The Hero(s): Roman Sýkora – He is a defenseman on the Stanley Cup winning Carolina Cold Fury and the team enforcer. He has gotten into some trouble both on and off the ice. Though suspensions are pretty standard for enforcers, his off the ice antics with puck bunnies may not be so good for the team.
The Story: Lexie meets Roman when she shows up at the Cold Fury business office to tell Brian that she thinks he is her father. She has been studying up on the Cold Fury since finding out about her parentage and knows exactly who Roman is and is happy to meet him.
This was the first book in this series I read and I really enjoyed both the story and the romance and the book had plenty of steam as well. I love the sports romance and this was a good one. I really enjoyed the narration as well. It was dual POV and dual narration done by Graham Halstead and Chris Dukehart. I really liked both of their voices. Though Graham didn’t have a Czech accent, it didn’t bother me at all.
I was a bit surprised that the character of Gray was so unlikable in this book since she was the heroine in book 4 Ryker. It isn’t often you see one of the main characters from a previous book be so witchy and mean. Of course, this didn’t bother me at all since I haven’t yet read Ryker. And I must say, I did like what it added to the story. I will certainly be listening to more of this series.
