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 system and I think it made her character really stand out.
Christian is charming and swoon-worthy with how he treats Serena (with the exception of when he was acting like an ass) and I like how he isn’t perfect. We get to see his vulnerability and insecurities which to be honest, are not all that common in the romance genre with the alpha male trend lately. Yes men can have insecurities, no it doesn’t make them weak, it makes them realistic. We all have self-doubts and I love that Tracy Goodwin incorporated that in Christian and Serena’s story.
Like I said, it took me a bit to get into the story, but once I got past those first few chapters, Serena really grasped my attention. I recommend Ice Hot to any readers who enjoy a sweet romance and some hot hockey player action.
Christian: They call me a hockey god because I’m a beast on the ice . . . and off. Men want to be me and women just want me. But now that the New York Nighthawks expect me to lead their team to victory, it’s all work and no play. My eyes are on the prize. Until I meet Serena Ellis, a sexy, curvalicious blonde who doesn’t know me from jack. And just like that, I’m hooked.
Serena: I don’t do one-night stands—especially with celebrity jocks who date models. Lots of models. But the god of hockey is a temptation that’s hard for mere mortals to resist. And after the best kiss of my life, I’m ready to throw my one-night stand rule out the window. Except Christian Chase won’t let me. He doesn’t want a one-night stand. He wants it all.
