Book 3 in Fire on Ice Series
One bad hit has left the career of young NHL Center Luke Hudson in question. When he arrives for rehab with a minor league team, his injury has robbed him of the edge that made him great.
Team trainer Adella Price’s job is to help Luke get back in peak condition. But their one on one sessions shake her resolve to remain unattached. Dell is hands-off to all hockey players, even one as charming and successful as Luke.
As Luke starts to get ahold of his game again, he loses his grip on his heart. Helping Luke get his edge back brings to light what Dell is missing from her life. But those who want them apart are relentless, and with their careers on the line, Luke and Dell must decide if their love is worth risking it all.
Wow. I think I'm in love! I haven't read the first two books in this series, this is a standalone, but I know that if they were anything like Edge, than I totally missed out! Luke is a NHL player who gets injured in a dirty move. Part of his rehab is to play on a minor league team for a bit to make sure he's fully recovered. Dell is said teams trainer and she has ladyballs of steel! I loved her! The pair have an attraction at first sight, but Dell is gun shy of hockey players and doesn't want a relationship. Luke is discovering he feels more than lust for the lovely team trainer and isn't sure how to deal with those feelings. Things progress quite nicely and once Luke's time is up with the minor league, he and Dell decide to give it a go. They have a few rocky moments but eventually get into a groove. I really enjoyed watching their budding relationship unfold. Especially when they had sexy times. It was hot! I love me some hunky hockey players and Luke definitely fit that bill! ;) Throw in a psycho ex, a snarky and funny roommate, hilarious side characters in the form of more hunky hockey players, and an overprotective dad who just so happens to also be a NHL coach.... Yeah there was a lot here to keep me glued to my kindle till I got to the very end! Oh and what a ride it was! I really liked how both Luke and Dell interacted with their friends and team mates. I laughed a lot throughout this book and that's another thing I love about reading. This is my first book by Ms. Rothert and it will not be my last! Aside from a few editing errors, this book was perfection! Wity dialogue that was full of contractions (just how I like it ;)), a story line that was interesting and kept me entertained, sexy times to heat up the pages err kindle screen. What more could a girl want!? Oh yeah, HUNKY HOCKEY PLAYERS! Duh! ;)
