Barrett Brown, Quinn Phillips, Mason Malone, and Grant Richard, friends for years, all left their ranches in Texas five years earlier in search of a change. They found that change, and the peace they craved, on the Jagged Rock.

A plane crash in the mountains shatters that peace, but not nearly as much as the woman who’s survived it. Finding her injured and half-frozen, they

*** Wow, I love the Ice Men !! *** Interesting story, twists and turns in the plot, sizzling sex, and fun. The men are sexy, manly, bigger than life. Deeply thought filled emotional characters, with true feelings. Each one has a history that lead them to acquire their land, and end up living at the Ranch. Kendra is on the small plane that crashes on the mountain and they rescue her.

Barrett, Quinn, Mason, and Grant are each diffe

By the name of it , I was actually expecting a lot of hot scenes but the book is actually based in a really good trama. Keeps building up the tension and interest in the reader while you are advancing in reading it.
It's about four lonely guys that get suddenly involved with a kind of crazy and sweet girl, and for some reason they are all attracted to her , butbeing the good friends they are, they are open to share . So....
Rhe trama was good, the hot scenes mmmm... Not so much for a book under th

She's the best ménage author I've read.
Barrett, Quinn, Mason, and Grant are the hottest sobs ever! I just want them for myself and sneaky purposes.
I loved Kendra, and trust me when I tell you it's been a while since I really liked a female MC, lately on the books I've been reading they ended up annoying me. But Kendra was great, she was sexy and honest and her loved was so real and pure my chest ached every time she was with her men.

This book is a "keeper's list.” I have read it a number of times. I like everything about the book. I like the story (it is as believable as any); I like the men, four of them, all with their own histories, strengths, weaknesses, preconceived ideas, who make their home on this "hard ass" ranch. And, I like the heroine, who is a little needy at first, but hey, she was just in a plane crash. She is young and not worldly, has had her own trials and tribulations, but is not simpering or whinny, etc. ...more

This book is truly one of Leah Brooke's finest. The interaction between the four men and Kendra could range from humorous to maudlin. My favorite interaction was between Kendra and Quinn. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good romance novel. The romanticism in this novel undergoes a dramatic shift in this novel. The men go from wary to spellbound. The transition is the best part of the novel. I hope you read this novel and enjoy it as much as I did

I've read it three times. I love it. Good for a cold afternoon sitting in front of the fire snuggled withering a good blanket.

This book was very forgetable. It's been less than a week since I read it and already I'm scratching my head trying to remember what I liked/didn't like about it.

I got REALLY sick of reading it 'feels so good'. That phrase being repeated a zillion times annoyed the shit out of me.

But the thing that bothered me the most was how responsible Kendra feels about the trouble that's happening. How it's 'her fault' beats me! Clearly ALL the trouble is about the property, so, how the fuck did it end up b

I love Leah Brooke's stories! She always introduces the reader to strong, sexy men who go out of their way to both protect and satisfy their woman...and Ice Men of North Dakota gives us not one, but four strong and sexy men! Kendra Stevenson is one lucky girl...and yes, I'm absolutely jealous!
First, Kendra miraculously survives a fiery plane crash and then she's rescued by four hot hunks in the middle of a blizzard...obviously someone up there has her back.
While she's recuperating in the bea

Awesome tale - it was warm and full of emotion and very hot stuff!

Our young and beautiful heroine is involved plane crash and rescued by four men living on the mountain in their ranch. Originally from Texas, they all left 5 years ago to escape what was bothering them there. Their primary focus is to keep her alive, and once she becomes conscience, she becomes more aware of her constant nakedness around them.

They are all attracted to her, and she to each of them. She is woefully inexperienced and
I'm not sure what to say about this other than it wasn't for me. The men, though likeable in turn, were the wrong type of alpha male for me - they were domineering, judgmental, and dismissive. They didn't seem to actually care what Kendra wanted - the author kept insisting they did but it never really showed, IMO - and they were absolutely set on thinking the worst of her even when there was no evidence of it.

On a similarly frustrating note, I found the plot to be a bit too bloated. We go from

I find that Brooke's books are hit or miss for me. But this was a winner - nicely developed characters, good pacing, suspense that weaves throughout the plot, good story telling, a feisty heroine, and a HEA ending. Although this was an entertaining read, I will admit, that Kendra's comments when aroused sounded too much like a bad porn flick at times ("Oh, God. It’s so hard inside me.”, "Oh, God. I can’t stand it.", "Oh, God. His cock’s in there. Oh, God. It burns.”). It would have been great if ...more
Leah Brooke can be hit or miss; and this was a miss for me. Didn't really take to Kendra; she seems to think everything is her fault when it's not. The four guys, individually, were sexy and hot, but when it came to sex, they seemed to become demanding and arrogant. And there was too much sex (ha!) It takes little imagination to figure out how three guys get it on with a woman (there are enough orifices for that!); but four is one too many, and they all seemed to want to pile in after a one-on-o ...more

LOVED, LOVED, LOVE THIS BOOK! The chemistry between Kendra, Barrett, Quinn, Mason, and Grant is off the charts HOT! And the sex is FREAKIN AMAZING! I laughed and I cried til my heart ached. The suspense was so intense at times I caught myself holding my breath. I highly recommend this book to everyone!

This is a much better storyline than the last couple given enough length to add some depth to the characters. All the men are hugely sexy and Kendra manages not to be too stupid with people out to kill her and only a little annoying when she gets hysterical about her men betting hurt.
While i enjoyed this one, i didn't necessarily love it. Still a good read though and would read it again. But i must say i don't know for sure where these mountains are in north dakota that are near bowman:) been to bowman a lot over the years....

I enjoyed this but I must confess it seemed to go too quickly for me. It could have been just a matter of a couple of paragraphs but just a little more exposition in a couple of places would have helped push it up to a 4 star (it was close)

I struggled too get through this book. At times Kendra was really annoying she'd go hot and cold all time then be really childish. Only thing I did like was each cowboy had very different characters. Story did pick up and better ending but was a struggle.
Those Ice Men are smoking hot. Each had very distinct characters and it was pretty easy to keep track of who was who. Kendra was sweet and strong with a fun, mischievous side. A hot, fun, enjoyable book!

Adored this book. Great storyline. Characters well defined. Story moved & was not just about the sex- even though that was VERY HOT!! This story kept my interest from first to last page.

What amazingly alpha men! Tough, stern, romantic, loving and oh so sexy. If a girl needed saving then these are definitely the men she would want to save her. A great story and lots of fun.
