2.5 Stars. I always appreciate a new author trying to write lesfic, but this just didnt work for me. I had such trouble reading this book. Read the book, put it down. Read more of the book, put it right back down. It took me 3 days to get through a book that should have taken only a few hours.

When I saw the premise of this book I was so excited to read it. A figure skater and a short track speed skater sounded great to me. With the Olympics (I love the Olympics) starting next month, what a

When I saw there was a traditionally published F/F book coming out I instantly jumped on it. This is a genre that does not have enough books out there so I was excited to read it. Sadly, for me, the book didn't keep me at that excitement level.

There was just way too much sex in this book, which is not something I would normally complain about but in this book it seemed like there was nothing but sex. And for me those scenes were very robotic and I didn't enjoy them very much.

As a reader almost exclusively of MM romance I've been keeping my eyes open for an FF story to try. I know the author and thought the premise of the story was a great one, so I thought this might be the book for me.

Well, safe to say FF is never going to be my genre of choice and the erotic scenes (many and creative) didn't add anything to the story for me. I did end up skimming them and thinking, 'wow, two world class athletes, preparing for medal events, they sure have a lot of energy to burn
I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

I was really enjoying this novel for at least halfway through. Despite the fact that Maisy and Blaze didn't actually talk for like 30% of the novel as they only had sex, I felt that the characters were both unique individuals, with distinct voices and perspectives.

I really liked Maisy - I liked how reserved she was in every situation outside of the bedroom. There, she wasn't anxious or trying to be the person her parents wanted

Maisy and Blaze are the newest feature in the SIG, and these two ladies will leave you breathless!

Maisy is a figure skater and Blaze is a speed skater. The two get hot and heavy early on in this book and already have a relationship of sorts going on. It's a nice change from strangers or friends to lovers, to be honest. But if you were thinking these would be soft, vanilla sex scenes - you'd be wrong! Tamsen is shockingly amazing at writing these scenes that they will make you blush (so maybe

Rather than a romance this one is better classified as erotica. If you go into it looking for hot and steamy sex with some ice skating thrown in the mix then you'll be a happy camper. The sex starts pretty much right away, There's no build up and not a lot of romance, but there is plenty of scintillating sex. Whether or not you like this book depends on what you're looking for. Erotica for the win. Romance-meh, not so much. As an erotica book I'd go as high as a 3.5 star rating. as pure f/f ...more

Reading the summary of this book is the best way you will get to know better the two protagonists. The fast-track American skater, Blaze, with her careless way of seeing her life including her sexuality and the Canadian figure skater, Maisy, repressed by her family and her education, but uninhibited in her sexual relations.

Once you start reading, the story becomes a succession of sexual encounters, some more imaginative than others, but generally quite interesting.

Until the middle of the book,

Dnf at 45%. The fact that I couldnt get through half of a 160 page book is crazy. I had such high hopes for this book especially after reading the first couple chapters. It was incredibly well written and interesting. BUT. the 40% I read was all smut. There were 4 different smut scenes in that time and I didnt even know what sport the characters played until the 40% mark. And once I found out it was right back into a sex scene. So if youre into that, you might like this book, but if not I wouldn ...more

Fire on the Ice is part of Tamsen Parker's Snow and Ice Games series and showcases the world of female skating from the viewpoints of two quite different characters - Blaze, an extroverted speed skater, and Maisy, an introverted figure skater. Where Blaze is all about getting attention, Maisy shies away from the crowds. In the bedroom it's a bit different though, with Maisy delighting in taking control and Blaze happy to follow suit. They both have goals of winning medals at the games, but can ...more

Fire on the Ice is the fourth book in Tamsen Parker's Snow & Ice Games series and can easily be read a s a standalone. Though I recommend you to read the first two books in the series because I really enjoyed them. Haven't read the third one yet, but will do that as soon as it releases.

Maisy and Blazes chemistry crackles from their first meeting in the bar, and it only gets better and better. Although Blazes larger than life personality would make her an obvious choice as the dominant in the bedroom, its actually Maisy who controls many of their encounters, garnering compliance from Blaze that its hard to imagine her giving to anyone other than Maisy. And while Maisy has dated or slept with far fewer people than Blaze, she also never judges Blaze for her sexual history or for ...more

this is a mess

so this book is a two povs alternating about blaze (bisexual, polyam) and maisy (lesbian) who are two athletes competing in snow & ice games which are basically olympics. so they met once and had a spark and now they meet again and have sex. and have sex. and have sex. literally 11 chapters of this book is porn. like porn with a little plot. i dont mind sex in general but honestly, it was too much for me.

content warnings: (view spoiler) mild homophobia, mild polyamory phobia, a lot of sex (maybe >40% of the book is explicit sex scenes)

So, there are two scenes that get this up to a two-star (maybe) and considering that this book is essentially a lot of sex, it seems strange that they are very quiet moments. And it's really hard to rate this book because if I hadn't been made aware of the black moment issues and wanted to see for myself, I

Words can't come close to describing what a load of garbage this book is i won't even waste my time trying to list all the faults of this book it would be much easier to list what went right which is that it ended. I wish is was possible to give this thing masquerading as a romance novel no stars but alas it is impossible another disappointment where this book is concerned #epicfail
Rep: lesbian MC, polyamorous bi MC, f/f paring

Content warning: explicit sexual content, homophobic parents

Set in the Winter Olympics (I guess), Blaze and Maisy meet again. Blake is a speed skater, Maisy is a figure skater. And they both enjoy sex a lot. Yes, the first chapters of the book are full of sex. And it is sexy, hot and fun.

I like romance stories that start with casual sex and slowly develops into a relationship. It works so well with Blake and Maisy because they are different and want

This is my 2nd book this author (the first being the M/M pairing in the same series), and once again, I found the story to be charming and delightful. The author has a knack for creating distinct characters with relatable and often hilarious voices. The sex scenes were plentiful, creative and all in all, most excellent. My favorite thing about the book was how sex-positive both characters were. Blaze was unapologetically promiscuous AND a well-known attention seeker, and even though

I never thought I needed Olympic erotica in my life, clearly I didnt know what I was missing. Tamsen Parker writes insanely hot sex of all kinds. Seriously ff mm mf, she does it all and she does it exquisitely. Maisy is a Canadian figure skater and Blaze is a speed skater and on the surface they could not be more different but when it comes to the bedroom, their tastes are insanely hot. The issue here is Maisy is monogamous whereas Blaze is poly, Maisy wants Blaze to be faithful to her at least ...more

Blaze knew only one person saw her for who she really was. The person she kept private and not the flamboyant one portrayed in the press. Maisy Harper was not all she appeared to be. The quiet and reserved woman changed once the door as closed. Two sides that matched one another providing the support and rekindling a relationship that threatened to burn them up in flames. As they both try again at a relationship and winning a medal will it be enough to keep them together?

I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.

3.5 stars I will admit I was a bit concerned when our MCs jumped right into bed, and what followed were a lot of very descriptive and hot sex scenes, with only sprinklings of emotions (mostly leftover from their previous encounter). I guess I was expecting a steamy romance, and really got more an erotica with romance. The thing that saved it for me was that I

Blaze is a short track speed skater, Maisy is a figure skater. Every 4 years (I assume) the Snow and Ice Games (SIG) happen. 4 years ago at the last SIG, Blaze and Maisy had a red hot affair. Both are down for the same at this event.
There were some things I liked; the figure skating and speed skating and the last couple of chapters.
Blaze was a unique character (she's bisexual, polygamous (and very open with who she is) which is something not really seen in romance- it did take some getting used

Blaze loves living life at a fast pace. She is in the top ranks as a speed skater for the USA, and her sex life is just as charged. Identifying openly as bisexual and polyamorous, nothing is off limits.

Maisy is a Canadian figure skater, always in the top ten but never in the medals. Controlled by parents, coaches and the team managers, she has mastered the quiet acquiescence required to slip through life without standing out. Only Blaze knows this is a ruse.

Fire is right! ~wipes brow~

The good:

- The Snow and Ice Games stand in for the Olympics, because copyright, and it's fun to watch people from totally different sports interact. Blaze only wants to go to events ruled by the clock, while Maisy wants to check out curling and ice dancing.

- Maisy and Blaze's public personas are near opposites, but their personalities have enough in common to make this thing work.

- Their sports have given them very different bodies - the thick thighs of a speed skater,

oooh i liked this one. it was so steamy. damn. it was a task to kep my face neutral while reading these sex scenes with family members around lol but i did iiiit!

Again, the strength of these books is the character voice. Maisy and Blaze are vastly different people. Maisy's more conservative and shy and Blaze is soo the opposite. Blaze unapologetically loves the spotlight and has made a career out of it, she's also not shy when it comes to her sex life. I loved both characters. How they were so

This is the fourth book in the series, and I am enjoying the variety of romances that are going on at the SIG. To be honest this starts out firmly in the lust, chemistry and passion genre, but as time moves on and the competition heats up, there are some good twists and turns in the story.

There are some good sports themed issues raised, such as commitment, passion, injury and media interest. It was fun to get behind the

I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is a fun and delightfully smutty romp. Released just in time for the Winter Olympics, Im not sure Ill be able to watch the figure skating without recalling a few dirty fantasies from this book.

This series about relationships between athletes in an Olympic village-like setting has been about sex and fantasies from the start and this might be the steamiest of the stories Ive read. Its the story of a wild child speedskater
Xan West
Overall, I have mixed feelings about this book. It has deep characterization, great chemistry, wonderful sex scenes and lovely sports details, but I wasnt on board with them as a couple; it felt like they each let something go that was actually a big important issue, which never got resolved in a way that worked for me as a reader.

Fire on the Ice is the F/F romance between two skaters competing for different teams. This installment read very differently from the others to me because of how much focus was on the sex, especially in the first half. This was one of my first F/F adult romances, so I was very much scandalized by some of the sex scenes - haha! *blushes just thinking of the book*
I did wish we would have seen Maisy and Blaze connect on a more emotional level in this book instead of just them banging like bunnies.
Feb 21, 2018 rated it liked it
I liked these characters, but wish we got to see their emotional journey more. Most of the book is their sexual one.

I also would have liked to see Maisey deal with her parental situation more fully. They were such assholes. I secretly was hoping Blaze would ream them out. And for as much as Blaze opens up, we never see Maisey tell her about the situation between her and her parents. And that too goes back to wishing we saw more of their emotional journey.
