Avery gave up on her sister’s dream for her, and decided to go after her own. Ice has the nickname for more than one reason. A crappy childhood with a bad relationship with his brothers have taught him to stand alone. When something tragic happens, his life is almost unbearable. If it wasn’t for hockey, he wouldn’t know what he would do with is life. When he is cut from another team for being cold and not a team player, he is picked up by Seattle. Great, right in his brother’s back yard. Who knew running after his dog at his new home would have him running into the most beautiful and the most dangerous woman he would ever meet.
Avery knew he was trouble from the minute she laid eyes on hin. But he is so hot and sexy, she migh not mind a little trouble in her life. One time together would never be enough.
Issac’s nickname is perfect for the way his heart is, how people see his attitude on and off the Ice. I am glad that Avery can melt the ice around his heart. His name might be ice, but he melts Avery’s heart and mine.
USA Today Bestselling author Jami Davenport presents another Seattle Sockeyes hockey romance and the fifth book in her Game On in Seattle sports romance series showcasing alpha male heroes of football, baseball, and hockey.
Brimming with attitude and broken beyond repair, Isaac “Ice” Wolfe has a heart as cold as his nickname, and he likes it that way–until he meets his neighbor Avery Maxwell. Avery is unlike any woman he’s ever known. Her smile thaws his frozen heart. Being with her heals his broken places. She makes him feel, and for Isaac that’s not always a good thing. Isaac has burned every bridge in his professional hockey career. When he’s traded to the Seattle Sockeyes halfway through their inaugural season, he knows he won’t get another chance. He’s never been a team player, yet he needs to become one–and fast.
Avery has only wanted one thing in her life–to train and show horses. Her decision to drop out of college to pursue her riding career causes a rift with her big sister, but Avery is tired of following everyone else’s dreams. Now she’s following her own, and no one is going to distract her from her passion–until she meets a dark stranger and his cantankerous dog.
When Isaac is warned away from Avery by the team’s captain, who happens to be Avery’s future brother-in-law, Isaac sees the writing on the wall. It’s Avery or his career. To Isaac, a life without hockey wouldn’t be a life worth living. But what about a life without Avery?
Do Isaac and Avery sacrifice their life’s passions for their mutual passion for each other, or do they fight to have it all, even if by doing so, they might lose everything in the end?
