SYNOPSIS

NHL player Orion Caldwell protects his own. He’s an enforcer to his core, but he was the one left defenseless when his longtime girlfriend broke his heart. Now he’s all about his game, but spending the offseason in his hometown forces him to confront painful issues –both old and new.

Samara Cross just wants to be invisible. After living a nightmare, she came back to her hometown seeking solace. But her quiet new life is upturned by the hot, charismatic hockey player who’s taken a sudden interest in her.

Orion and Samara find something unexpected in each other, but when the hockey offseason ends, so does their time together. They struggle with their separation, confronted by ghosts of the past and an uncertain future, discovering that sometimes the only way to hold on to something precious is to let go.

✯✯✯✯1/2  ‘A great end to a series’ stars!

‘There were no guarantees, ever, but love was a leap of faith and I’d been standing on the edge…’

I’ve loved this series. I never fail to get swept up in Brenda Rothert’s words, atmosphere and characters and it was sort of sad opening this book knowing this was the end to the Fire on Ice Series, however Brenda certainly left me on a high because Orion’s book was up there as one of my faves of this series.

“Samara…..you’re worth fighting for.”

This was such a sweet and beautiful read. There was nothing overly dramatic, no overabundance of angst – in fact it all flowed beautifully.

“You know, this you and me thing?” “I think we’re on to something really great.”

Our hero Orion was just divine! Orion is the teams enforcer and it’s a tough role putting your body on the line but this guy couldn’t be more different off the ice.

“Yeah, I’m a lover and a fighter.”

Orion was warm, sensitive and loyal and was exactly what Samara needed. Her feelings of worthlessness were heartbreaking but this man really brought her out of herself and taught her what love, desire and happiness really meant. That it was worth fighting for.

The love between Orion and Samara felt so genuine and sweet, it was impossible not to fall in love with these two. Their love was simplistic and honest and I felt every word and every touch between them.  It was sheer beauty!

“I’m yours, too….and nothing’s ever felt better than that.”

As usual the Hockey ‘feel’  was apparent in this story and it’s one of the things that kept me coming back to this series again and again because Brenda really does put me in the moment as I’m swept up in the atmospheric delight of the hockey arena and the team brotherhood she creates.

If you haven’t checked out this series yet I urge you to add them to your TBR’s. Honestly, there has not been one book out of the five that I haven’t loved.  Each is special in its own way and every character has an engaging, passionate and emotional story to tell.

I have to say I was a tad excited when I saw there would be a spin off series! Bring it on!  The Fire on Ice series is an absolutely recommend from me!

Killian (On the Line #1) by Brenda Rothert

SYNOPSIS

Killian Bosch knows he’s his own worst enemy – he just doesn’t give a damn. The star forward of a minor league hockey team, he’s unstoppable on the ice. His reckless behavior, devil-may-care attitude and complete disregard for consequences have made him a major source of headaches for the Fenway Flyers’ brass. 


But the new Flyers owner is more steel than brass. Sidney Stahl is a disciplined woman who parlayed earnings from a college job into a real estate empire. She’s determined to transform the Flyers from marketing nightmare to hockey powerhouse. Once she gets Killian in line, she knows the rest of the team will follow his lead. 


The seduction of his sexy new team owner is a challenge too forbidden for Killian to resist. Sidney plays into his attraction as a means of controlling him, but soon finds that she’s the one surrendering. It’s all on the line as Killian. and Sidney are forced to choose – business or pleasure?
