I liked Nolan when he was introduced in Destiny on Ice (which I loved btw) and I was excited to get his story. It was obvious that he had his life together, but as the story delved deeper into his character, I soon realized that it was all an act. He was building something good with Lainey, but as soon as feelings started to grow deeper and she started getting serious with him, he froze her out and sabotaged their relationship. Months later he realizes his mistake and tries to get her back in hi ...more

Hockey star Nolan Solvenson is nothing short of skilled perfection, both on and off the ice. Or so everyone thinks. His teammates are constantly hitting him up for advice, but really, when it comes to his own life, Nolan can't seem to make the right moves anymore.

Blame it all on Lainey Shelburne, a woman he wants but is det
I've been a fan of S.R for several years now... her books are always easy, low angst, chemistry filled stories that just make me laugh and smile. Resistance on Ice was no different. The second book in her Boys of Winter series gives us Nolan, Brent's teammate and Lainey, Aubrey's sister from book one Destiny on Ice. If you haven't read that one yet, they are stand alones so you'll be fine. But you definitely will want to meet Brent! This second chance romance was sweet and I loved watching Nolan ...more

Omg, I can't believe how fast I'm reading the books in this series! Just like the first book, this one was once again a one-sitting read. I just couldn't stop reading once started and before I knew it I was done with it and writing a review :O.

I really liked Nolan and Lainey's presence in 'Destiny on Ice' and I was so excited to start this book and reading their full-length book. There were some leads written in the first book which made me so curious to read this one and find out what's going

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book.

Lainey & Nolan had a secret summer affair. They broke it off because trust issues and a whole ton of other issues. But they resisted well more like she tried to resist him but it wasn't happening.

This is a great and funny sports romance, friends to lovers and second chance romance all tied into one.
Just NO. I had to DNF this one, although
I should have just put it down after the
first few pages. This is when we discover
"our hero" has slept with 9 girls in one
weekend. I was grossed out and then
this book went downhill from there.
Add in a whiny, needy, clingy heroine
and did I say...desperate.....Well, I couldn't
get past 33%. This book, nor the
characters could hold my interest and
I did not find anything redeemable about
this couple.

Resistance on Ice is the 2nd book in the Boys of Winter series it's told in a dual POV and although we got to meet Nolan and Lainey in the first book. It CAN be read as a standalone but if you haven't read the 1st book then you have missed out on an hilarious read in Destiny on Ice.

Nolan comes across as a typical man-whore he's guarded and doesn't let people in easy. He never lets anyone get that close being vulnerable is just not something he allows himself to be. That is until Lainey but

Nolan Solvenson is known for having his life together. He is the one that friends turn to when they need advice on getting back on track. If everyone only knew how much of a front he puts up. That his world is quite the opposite. So he remains guarded. Until Lainey Shelburne. Nolan is determined to keep her away, until he can no longer do so. After a few times together, he completely blows her off. Most girls would cry in a corner and wonder wha

S. R. Grey’s RESISTANCE ON ICE is a winning addition to the Boys of Winter series. NHL Right Winger, Nolan Solvenson, wants to get Lainey Shelburne back in his bed, but Lainey has put him in the friend zone. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Las Vegas. It is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.

We first met both Nolan and Lainey in book one, DESTINY ON ICE. Nolan is Brent Oliver’s friend/line mate, and Lainey is Aubrey’s little sister. Nolan and Lainey were secretly hooking u

S.R. Grey continues hitting the mark with Resistance on Ice!! This was such a fun friends to lovers story. Very low on the drama/angst and very high on the humor and heart. And you guys know how much I love to see a big alpha womanizer brought to his knees by a woman **swoon**

Nolan is the man Lainey wants to hate. He rejected her. And now he's back in town and wants more. But she wants to hate him. He rejected her. We can't always get what we want :)

You guys will love this story. I promise you!

3.5 - 4 stars

Second chance romance is one of my favorite tropes. Throw in the fact that this is also a romcom sports romance and I was sold! Resistance on Ice is book 2 in the interconnected Boys of Winter series, but can be read as a stand alone. Since we meet our hero and heroine in Destiny on Ice, however, readers may want to read the books in order for maximum enjoyment.

I had a bit of a love/hate relationship with both Lainey and Nolan. They could be so incredibly sweet and wonderful (both t

4.5 Star Review Resistance On Ice (Boys of Winter #2) by S.R.Grey

This is fast becoming one of my favourite series. This is the second book in the series and is is Nolan Solvenson and Lainey Shelburne's story and one I thoroughly enjoyed. Between the two of them there were certainly some laugh out loud moments and sex scenes that burnt up the pages.

What happens when good time guy Nolan, terrified of commitment realizes finally that he has let the one woman who might just be his destiny go?

Of course after meeting Nolan in book 1, I couldn’t wait for his story and believe me it did not disappoint. Secrets lovers to friends back to lovers… count me in!

Lainey and Nolan have a secret hook up relationship they keep hidden, but Lainey wants more and Nolan can’t give her that so he lets her go. Now they are back together and Nolan wants their hot and heavy sexual relationship to start right back, but Lainey quickly places Nolan in the friend zone. Nolan would rather be friends with

Hockey God Nolan Solvenson has no idea what he's gotten himself into when he get involved with the hot blooded and stubborn Lainey Shelburne but he has definitely met his match. Now if he can only get past his own bullheadedness he might just realize the last thing he was looking for is exactly the thing he needs.

This was another great addition to the Boys of Winter series. We get to see the growing relationship between Lainey and Nolan bounce all over the place while they try to work out their

I was really interested in how this series will continue and whether I'd end up liking the second book more than the first (which I rated 3 stars), but it didn't happen. Too much drama, unrealistic situations and immature characters. (view spoiler)

This is the 2nd in the series but the 1st one I've read but I am going to go back and read the first one,even though you kinda know the outcome just the little tidbits you get make you want to go find out exactly what happened. But you don't feel lost or confused in this book at all while reading, it's kinda hard to explain that dynamic without giving any spoilers so just trust ...more

Before reading this story please read the below books first
Destiny on Ice (Boys of Winter #1)

This is Lainey and Nolan’s story. Nolan is great with giving advice but with his personal life not going his way should he be giving any? Lainey is all he wants but he is not going to touch her. After blowing her off he knows it was wrong. But now after telling her he is sorry all she will give him is friends

Yet another amazing story from S.R. Grey. Resistance on Ice is the second book in the Boys of Winter standalone series, but I strongly recommend reading Destiny on Ice (Brent and Aubrey) before diving into the one because you do get a glimpse of Lainey and Nolan!

This is the 2nd book in this series and what a story!
I was hooked, the characters make you feel, they made you understand and the friendships formed were just beautiful!
Nolan has a dilemma on his hands in regards to Lainey! Oh boy. When things get rather awry Nolan can't help but feel how he feels and do some things he shouldn't!
I really felt for Lainey! When you find someone you click with but things don't work the way they should, then you just feel like you want to hug the character!

This is the second book in the Boys of Winter series. I have read book one as well as this and can be read as a standalone. We met both Lainey and Nolan in book one Destiny On Ice. This is a good second chance sports romance. I had to read this book for a few reasons: one I read book one as was looking forward to it. Two it is a second chance romance book and three it’s about hockey, my favorite sport. It’s a win-win for me.

Never has a title suited a character so well. Logan is an example of resistance in both ice and personal life, determined not to compromise to anyone, he navigates from girl to girl without ever wanting anything serious. But when he faced with the insatiable Lainey, he begins to ponder if there is still a possibility that he may open his heart to someone.

Lainey can not get Nolan out of her head, but she does not forget he dumped her and is determined not to give herself back to the guy, which se

Resistance on Ice (Boys of Winter 2) by S.R. Grey

Sports RomCom. Standalone, second in a related series.

Resistance on Ice is the second standalone in SR Grey’s Boys of Winter Series. I enjoyed the first, Destiny on Ice, and Resistance is just as good. It was a combination sports romance, second chance romance and friends-to-lovers romance in one well-narrated package. Just like the first in the series, it was pretty low on angst, funny and sexy. An easy, enjoyable read.
