Mindy Lou's Book Review
Christian is the new Captain for the Nighthawks. He's won two Stanley Cups, very rich and can have any woman he wants. His life seems charmed but the author did try to make this unique and surprised me with Christian's situation. Usually hockey gods are treated as such but his new teammates, one in particular, seem to be willing to knock him down at any cost to the team due to jealousy. I gotta admit, I'm used to seeing the team unity in sports books.

Serena is born from wealth but does not fit t

"Christian is sexy as hell, rock hard, and kisses like no one I've ever known. I swear he is temptation incarnate. And I am tempted. Very, very tempted."

Yeah, #CoverLust strikes again. This beauty caught my attention and I decided to give a new-to-me author a try and I'm so thrilled to be Tracy Goodwin's new #FanGirl. I loved this story and will commence #Stalking.

Christian, aka Chris to his friends, is a very well known #HockeyHunk. He has a reputation as a manwhore and is photograp

I frequently found Serena acting immature (their first meeting,the bar,etc.), and this was a big turn off for me . Serena had major trust issues stemming from her teen years. She needed to let that go, get therapy, and not take her insecurities out on Chris. He seemed like a good guy from the start- considerate, honorable, and integrity all over the place. I loved Chris's patience and vulnerabilities with Serena and sex. So hawt. What happens when a team player forgets there's no "I" in team and ...more

I really like this book. It is a feel-good story of love and romance. It covers some excellent subjects that definately relevant in today’s world. The main lead characters Serena's and Christian's romance and eventual love for one another is so realistic. The supporting characters are well developed and have wonderful personalities. This book includes a gay married couple. Serena's brother Lucas is married to Charlie and both are staunch supporters of Serena, her business and her personal life. ...more

Oh Christian and Serena, how I loved your story! I love when two characters have such an intense and magnetic pull towards one another, that is not over the top, but just right. And for me, that is how Christian and Serena are. They meet in a funny, but genuine way with no possible way of their paths crossing again. But sure enough, they do. And this time it is hot, a little bit of fun, and then bam, smoking hot chemistry. I loved how their relationship progressed until Christian tried to do the ...more

Christian, center and captain for the new hockey team in NY, the Nighthawks. He's won 2 Stanley Cups, hot, single, a drunk for a father who only calls when he needs money.
Serena, a rich girl disowned by her parents, has her gay brother and partner for business partners in her design business, a really neat grandmother, a 12- 14 size body that she promotes with her designs that she has insecurity issues issues with.

What a book! Ice Hot is about a hockey star who is more than the public sees and the sassy heroine he falls for. For a relationship that begins with a frozen Slurpee being spilled all over the heroine, things get hot fast. I like that Chris and Serena were each broken in their own ways. I loved that they brought out the best in each other. I want a Chris in my life (he's my new favorite book boyfriend by far). This book also shows a realistic heroine who embraces her body type and advocates for ...more

Nothing is better than reading a book that has a hot alpha male falling for a realistic woman. Serena and Christian are perfect together and compliment each other well. I love how Serena is confident in her self amd leaves her sass fly! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait for more is this series.

Hot hot and more Hot! I love this book because it kept me on my toes. This book is different in a good way.
Advice if you’re going to read it make sure you have a enough time. I wasn’t able to sleep until I finished it.

UGH I could not get into this book. DNF 30% through. The whining was just absolutely annoying and pulled me away from the story. I enjoyed the banter in the beginning but then the story just became too immature. The constant talk about money and how Serena was burned by a jock at the age of 16.

I didn't just love/lust after Christian - what I truly enjoyed about this book was getting to know the other players on the team. I know I'm going to be #1clicking on the next one, and the next one, and happily binge as the Nighthawks pursue the Stanley Cup!

Serena just loves to tease her man, “this dress is hiding the fact that I’m rocking a very sexy thong today. I would have gone commando, your personal favorite, but we are meeting with my parents, after all. I need to show some modicum of respect.” She places her free hand over my shoulder. “Though I may be going the discreet route, it does slide off easily.” I think Chris is sometimes jealous that his woman gives his dog more attention than him, "I missed you too, Puck.” Serena kneels on the fl ...more

5 Stars to Ice Hot by Tracy Goodwin!
This is a great start to what I believe is going to be a great series. Hockey romance is my absolute favorite of the sports romance genres. To me, there is nothing sexier than a hot shot hockey player. Additionally what makes this book an even better experience for me is I have found a new author to add to my TBR. Tracy Goodwin is definitely an author whose name I have seen before. Why I haven't read one of her books before this, is a mystery to me. So I want

I've read so many hockey romances and this book ranked up there well but not really original. What made it nice was how chemistry made those two become interested despite the one guy at the table remarking on her weight as a "fat chick". Serena is size 14/16 which is a normal average size.... healthy for her too at 5'7".

Chris has a lot of team pressures from Mike. We never find out Mike's reason for discontent but Chris tries to make bridges towards peace and Mike is really dragging

I am all about Hockey romance!
This story incorporates that along with, body shaming, self-worth, bullying, alpha males, strong independent females and what happens when past demons rear their ugly heads to play devil's advocate with the new and intimidating goodness in their lives. Christian and Selena are quite a fast and furious tale!
No worries though! Touches of humorous moments that sneak up on you break up the dramatic, dark tinges and sexual tension.

WOW, just wow. I loved this book so much. I picked it up because I love a good hockey romance but this book had so much more. Christian is a gorgeous hockey god with a need to prove himself and a shaky past. I loved the camaraderie with the team. Christian's private hockey arena, and I would love to see more books from Nick or Thor.

Serena is sassy, gorgeous, and unapologetically genuine. She's a larger girl but she's happy in her curves and tries to love herself despite a history of body shaming

Ice Hot is the first book in the New York Nighthawks series by Tracy Goodwin. And what a story to start with. Tons of chemistry jumping off this pages, the character's connection at its best. Drama with a capital D. With a side of humor that will have you laughing out loud.

Ice Hot by Tracy Goodwin had me hooked from page one. Christian jumps off the page as an alpha who is loyal, humble, and a good guy. Serena is sassy, voluptuous, and funny. Their scenes are HOT and there's chemistry right away. Sexual tension? Check. Steamy sex? Check. There's also more. These characters and the supporting players are three dimensional and I wanted to be a part of their world. This book kept me up at night and made me want to reread it right away. It's one of my favorites from a ...more

I love a good hockey romance and Icy Hot fits the bill. First in the series by Tracy Goodwin, Ice Hot centers on Christian, captain of the New York Nighthawks and Serena, clothes designer. Serena knows she doesn’t have that model figure and can’t understand why Chris, handsome guy that he is, wants her. Between Chris’s teammate Mike and the media trying its best to keep them apart, true love MUST triumph in the end for their happily ever after!

I loved Ice Hot. It grabbed me from the first paragraph and I couldn't put it down. There are many layers to this romance and I hate giving spoilers. What I can say is that it was hot and sensual and romantic (the romance was real and believable and one I rooted for). The characters were fleshed out and made me laugh and cry and cheer. I couldn't stop smiling in some cases and cried a couple of times. It's that type of book and a highly recommended read.

I’m a huge hockey fan so when I see a hockey story of course I’m going to request it, but it irks me that there’s very little hockey in them or the author starts calling the rink or arena an stadium when it’s not!!! Football and soccer are played in stadiums not hockey!

Bravo.... finally an author has the "nerve"to write a book with realistic characters.
Christian is a hot as hell hockey captain.
Serena is a real woman ... she's not an anorexic model type ( she's a size 14/16) whom he meets in a gas station convenience store .
Well you know the plot from here .
It's about time we see reality in a romance .

Ice Hot is the first book in the New York Nighthawks series by Tracy Goodwin. I absolutely adored this book. It kept my interest and I loved learning more about The Nighthawk team. Christian and Serena both have issues. Christian is not looking for a relationship. Serena has some serious trust issues with men. So trusting Christian so early is an extremely hard concept for Serena and her friends to understand. I can't wait to see what the rest of this series has in store for me.

This is a wonderful story that has great characters and an in-depth look at society and the body shaming that occurs everywhere. A girl with a healthy weight is a great thing to behold. To have her be independent and sassy is just icing on the cake. The chemistry between the main characters is amazing.

For the first time reading one of this authors books,  I must say that she hit it out of the park. You are hooked from beginning to end with how they way it's written.  She breaks it down wonderfully that we get so lost in the storytelling it's as if you're there right with them. Serena and Christian are the embodiment of this book and make it perfect.  They both have some serious issues but by the end of the book they have pretty much worked them out. I can't wait until book 2 is out. If it's a ...more
