They say a leopard can’t change its spots. They’re wrong, because I did! Now I’m successful and independent and busy heading up my own company. I don’t have time for the complication of a man in my bed—not yet. That plan is years down the line.

Or so I thought. Because when a certain devastatingly sexy hockey captain sets his sights on me, my old impulsive self is determine

If you have ever met a guy who starts the conversation off with a string of pick up lines, you know he is either a complete douche-bag or he’s sexy specimen of a man masquerading as a comical genius.

Love this series!

Slap Shot is the third book in the Hot Ice series by Lily Harlem.
Captain Rick “Ramrod” Lewis is so sexy! His cockiness might throw women off but he is the sweetest guy once you get to know him. Dana Wilcox is an event planner and she is in for the ride of her life. She doesn’t do relationships due to her sordid past but thankfully Rick helps her see past this. Rick turns her onto things that she never thought would happen. Oh

keep in mind i am rating by the series. in normal rating world I would probably give 2 stars but as series and author 3 wins it. anyway I think Lily is on to something. I find that the stories get better as the series moves forward. sex seems to be the center of the stories which at times too much sex but we are starting to get some substance on top of the sex. there was actually a story here and when physco came in to the mix made it 10 times better. Lily should of played with that a little mor ...more

Rick “Ramrod” Lewis seems to have it all. Expensive car, big house, an exciting career as the captain of the Orlando Vipers hockey team, and even a crazed stalker-fan who’s been sending him ‘love notes’ after a one-night stand mistake. Unfortunately, none of it means as much anymore since he doesn’t have anyone to share it with. The unfulfilled feeling makes all of the materials things he possesses feel a bit lacking, but all of that

It starts with a cheesy pick up line. No, really, I mean it's very cheesy! But Rick Lewis sets his sights on Dana, and despite her every effort to push him away, he keeps coming back, and showing Dana what she's missing by not dating.

Dana has gotten past her wild days. She's now responsible and free of her past. Maybe something in Rick reminds her of those times she'd rather forget. But Rick makes her feel things she hasn't in a very long time.

This is the third book in the Hot Ice Series, and the books just keep getting hotter. Lily Harlem knows how to keep a reader interested from the first page with characters that are realistic and a plot that will keep you guessing until the last page. I hated to see this book end but I hope that there will be more in this series because the characters that were introduced in this one were funny and complex and I’d love to get to know them.

Slap Shot is book 3 of the Hot Ice series. After reading this story, I look forward to getting my hands on books 1 and 2. The author did a great job engaging the reader. I had a very hard time putting it down and read it very quickly.

I felt a very strong connection to both Dana and Rick. They are characters you would enjoy getting to know in real life. Both of them have worked very hard to overcome their past and get them where they are now.

The Queen of Steam delivers again! This time the captain of The Vipers hockey team, Rick 'Ramrod' Lewis gets his story. Rick is your typical cocky jock, all he has to do is click his fingers and the ladies come running. Not so with events organiser Dana Wilcox though. Dana has had an 'interesting' past and poor relationship choices have led her to career over men. Rick's not about to give up that easily though and he also has a skeleton knocking noisily on his closet door! The Hot Ice stories ma ...more

Another great addition to the Hot Ice series. I liked that Dana was trying so very hard to leave her old life behind. Sounds like she was scared straight, and she got lucky that she had an out. The "good Dana" vs "bad Dana" internal dialogue was entertaining. It also sounds like she was born to party, lol... or at least organize others' parties. She'd built a great business, mostly by word of mouth. Rick sure came on strong with her. I wonder if it was partially that she just wasn't fazed by his ...more

I was kindly gifted this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Wow. An absolutely hot read. The chemistry and the storyline is just awsome. I really couldn't put it down. I have just 3 rules regarding reading books by lily harlem,
1 - don't read while your partner is not home
2 - don't read without a constant supply of batteries
3 - don't read when your poorly.

This book has hot sex, romance and a crazy ass stalker which leads to an amazing suspense moment. Highly recommend this book a

Well hot damn! Rick "Ramrod" Lewis is sex on skates.. Captain of the Vipers and looking for the right woman to finally settle down

Dana wants to put her past behind her and move on.. She is running a very successful event planning business.. She didn't plan on meeting the Captain at the wedding of his teammate..

Lust between them is overwhelming.. Dana lets her guard down and can't help her self with Ramrod..

Can both their pasts come back to haunt them or can they move forward and be happy?

Wish the epilogue from this book was as good as the others, but the story itself is good.
