Nice and lovely.
Since this was my first read by this author, I really didn't know what to expect. But after reading the first few pages, I was hooked. Despite the slow pace in the middle of the story, I had so much fun reading it.
Henry “Hal” Parker is a sexy, solitary polar bear shifter. He refused the offers from the oil company and told them that he would never lease out his land in Alaska. As a former businessman, he knew very well that a number of people would benefit from this oil inve ...more

A car stranded in the snow brought them together, but love sealed the deal in this short, sweet paranormal romance.
I love Lizzie Lynn Lee books, have been reading them for a few years and I was given a copy of 'Hot Like Fire, Cold As Ice' by the author in exchange for an honest review. Like a lot of her books, this one is short, hot and sweet. It can be read in a couple of hours and like all the books I've read by her, it's overfl ...more

This was a fun little novella full of hot steamy romance. It would have benefited from more background on Hal and Missy plus a longer story to make their connection a little more believable though. Double it with another 80 pages would have fleshed it out nicely. I liked the humor Ms. Le
I read plenty of shifter stories, and plenty of stories that have what is pretty much mate bond insta-love. Sometimes it works, sometimes it can be overlooked, and sometimes it just fails. This was one of those times it fails.

Hal is a great hero but I felt that maybe he deserved better than Missy. Of course I don't like lobbyists or people helping co ...more

This was a quick read that I enjoyed saved by the plot alone. The story was filled with cliches, incorrect word usage, unrealistic situations, a reference to Seinfeld that added absolutely nothing to the story and lets not forget about a complete halt of an ending. It was not a cliffhanger...it just ended instead of adding as little as 2 more pages.
This was a fun read, only downside for me was that it ended too soon, I was left feeling there was more to come.
I received this book free via instafreebie in exchange for an honest review.
Therefore everything that happens is rushed and not on what most would call a normal timeline. Could have had a bit more depth and length then would have been 5 stars.
Interesting story and liked the heroine & hero. Just found it strange they have sex nearly straight away with no discussion about safe sex. Not sensible in this day and age. They each knew they were ok but the other didn't.
Sex scenes good but a bit strangely worded. The a ...more
