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

I used to love sports romances but the more I read, the more it became a bit hard to read about grown men acting like little kids with their overblown egos and heroines that accepted things too easily.

I'm so happy that I gave this book a chance because I loved Christian. He was a successful hockey player that wasn't a conceited asshat. I loved that he was relatable, considerate and dedicated to his woman. I love that we get a dual POVs. Knowing what he was feeling and thinking, right alongside S
My life is about balance, about control. Me on the ice. Me on my own. I can't control the rumors, but I can control everything else. What I wear, what I drive, what I own, where I live.... So why do I feel out of control when Serena's around? --Christian Chase, the Cyclone

I have found a new genre that I love that has allowed me to get back into contemporary novels--the romcom! Just like their movie counterparts, they are filled with humor, wit, romance, misunderstandings, and ultimately "The Ge

"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.

There was a ton of hockey in this story, but I still enjoyed the hero and heroine. Full review to come.

Christian was named captain of a new expansion team and has his eyes on the prize - leading his team to his third Stanley Cup. An accidental meeting involving a blue slushy and a beautiful woman, brings Serena into his life, and as he begins to fall for her, trouble erupts for the Nighthawks.

I love sports romances, especially hockey romances, and was eager to try this series. I am glad I did, because I loved both Chris and Serena. Chris was a "hockey god", but there was really

I love books where the characters aren't what you are expecting...the woman who wants a one night stand and the man who doesn't. It switches the expectations of the story and it makes the characters feel different and fresh, which is a challenge in a genre that has a pretty expected story line, plot and ending.

Christian and Serena were, in some ways, what I was expecting and in others were not at all. I liked this, I liked that I felt lik

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

Surprisingly it took me a while to really get into this book. It just didn’t really grab and hold much attention until about 30% into the book. But once I finally got into it, I absolutely loved it!

I love Serena’s personality. She’s so real and strong, a truly wonderful and inspiring character. I love that she’s curvy and confident. She dons snark & sass like armor yet she’s not mean about it. It’s her natural defense

I'm a sucker for hockey romance and this one was a great read.

I love Christian and Serena and their relationship. The progress of it was written beautifully, but the only problem I had was they just knew who was trying to sabotage their relationship. I wanted to know more about why he did what he did. But that didn't take away my liking off the book. I loved that Serena had a strong backbone and wouldn't take too much shit from anyone. I loved how he supported her. But being a guy, Christian di

Great start to a new hockey series. In the story we get a glimpse at several NY Nighthawk players and I see some great stories coming our way. Christian Chase is the team captain and should be focused solely on the team and upcoming season but the incredibly sexy Serena Ellis has him slightly distracted.

I haven't read anything from the author before and after reading this book I must say I am a brand new fan. I very much enjoyed her storytelling style, characters, and story pace. I highly recom

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!

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.

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

I do love a good hockey romance and this one does not let me down. Christian is the new captain of the Nighthawks, an expansion team. One of his jobs is to foster a team environment, create unity among a bunch of guys who were on opposing teams just a year ago. Its hard, but Christian knows that he can do it.

If you like your steamy romance with a special bond between the two main characters that evokes so much emotion you feel it down to your toes, Chris and Serena's story is for you. Neither was looking for love, and both thought they were too busy, but when fate puts them together, their lives are irrevocably changed. He's the captain of the new professional hockey expansion team, and she's busy trying to launch her clothing design business. But from the first time they meet, there's an undeniable ...more

Hockey romances or just sport romances in general are another one of those kryptonite reads for me! I simply can't stay away from them. ICE HOT was a first time read from this author and even though this story wasn't quite up there with some of my favorites (that list is extensive), I definitely enjoyed Chris and Serena's story!

Encounter at a gas station

Christian literally runs into Serena at a gas station and a blue slurpee ends up as part of her outfit. Chris is the Captain of the New York Nighthawks and it's a rare find for a woman not to recognize him. He's hooked, but didn't get her name and number. Then they meet again at a bar. Soon this curvey woman who designs clothes and the hockey player going for the cup are hooking up.
