Kit
  Molly Lynch isn’t like any woman I’ve met before. The pretty, ball-busting reporter has a penchant for asking questions that dredge up memories I’d rather keep buried. I answer them, though, because I’m so intrigued by her—a mix of shy and bold, so set in her ways that the slightest change knocks her off kilter. The closer Molly gets to my dark truth, though, the more I try to shift her focus to what I want most—her total surrender to me in the bedroom.   Molly   I finally have the life I’m meant for. Predictable. Boring. Safe. NHL player Kit Carter upsets the stability I crave when he looks at me with his dark eyes, wounded and guarded, but also swirling with desire. I can’t let him figure out who I truly am—driven not by ambition but by anxiety. Unable to let go of my control, even for a second. There’s something about Kit that draws me to him so powerfully it’s no longer a choice, though. I need to give in, even if it costs me everything.

Playing for You (Hot on Ice, Book 1) by Aurora Paige

Title: Playing for You
Series: Hot on Ice, Book 1
Author: Aurora Paige
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 14, 2021



 
Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty - “This book was pretty steamy!!! I love when a female lead is strong and can handle life like a boss!!”
Vxhexn_reads - “Get ready to binge this beauty!! Love, loss, insecurity, determination, and pure unadulterated need play off the page with such ferocity that you won’t be able to put this book down until you’ve read it from cover-to-cover.”
A_brunette_bookworm - “This books is steamy and hot and Aurora Paige did a great job with it. I cannot wait for more!”


She’s a curvaceous vixen who owns the hottest lounge in Los Angeles.

He’s a sexy hockey goaltender who plays the game off the ice more than on.

What happens when a one-night stand becomes more?

Twenty-eight-year-old, voluptuous, Filipina-American, Arianna Santos has the hottest spot in LA nightlife. When her grandfather has a major stroke and there’s a low chance of recovery, she inherits from him the worst team in the National Hockey League, the San Francisco Storm. Without knowing anything about hockey or running a hockey franchise, Arianna needs to prove to the all-boys club that a well-educated, minority female owner has a place in the industry. The Storm General Manager insists that she learn about hockey from the new goalie, Blake Collins.

Tall, toned, and hazel-eyed, Blake Collins has the swift moves on the ice as the California Crusaders goaltender, continuing the Collins goalie legacy of Stanley Cup Championships his father and grandfather established for the team. When a knee injury affects his game and attitude on the ice, he gets transferred to the San Francisco Storm as their only hope of making it to play-offs. As the player with the most knowledge and skills passed from generations of great hockey players, Blake is forced to teach the new knows-nothing-about-hockey owner, Arianna Santos, about how the hockey world works.

Blake and Arianna’s animal attraction to each other gives them a passionate one-night stand in LA that doesn’t end as they expected. Will their reunion cause a riff in the organization? Will they both play nice to one another for the sake of the team?





Aurora Paige is a healthcare professional by day and a writer of steamy contemporary romance with sassy heroines and sexy heroes at night. Each Aurora Paige story delivers a variety of Curvy Heroines, Multicultural relationships, Alpha Heroes, Steamy Heat, and a Guaranteed Happily Ever After.

Playing For You (Hot on Ice #1) by Aurora Paige Review

Playing For You (Hot on Ice, #1)Playing For You by Aurora Paige
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aurora Paige hits it in the net with PLAYING FOR YOU (Hot on Ice #1). LA club owner, Arianna Santos and hockey goalie, Blake Collins have an incredible one-nightstand that neither can stop thinking about. Soon thereafter, Arianna inherits the worst team in the NHL the San Francisco Storm, and Blake is traded to the Storm. Imagine their surprise when they are reunited. Unfortunately, things are a bit complicated. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult readers.

PLAYING FOR YOU is a solid foundation for the Hot on Ice series. It has an interesting plot and a lot of challenges for the main characters to face. Blake and Ari have great chemistry. I enjoyed learning some things about the Filipino culture. The novel had an enthralling ending.

This is the first book that I have read by Aurora Paige. I enjoyed her writing style. I plan on following the Hot on Ice series. I recommend this story to people who enjoy multicultural romances and/or sports romances. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Excerpt



“I’ll do it.”
“What?” I mean, that was Becca’s plan, but I still hadn’t decided if I was going to ask Klaus.
He’ll have to pretend to be my boyfriend. Someone who loves me enough to prove I’ve totally moved on from Roman and Julianna. I’m not sure my mental health can handle spending a weekend with Klaus pretending we’re dating and then coming back home after and going back to being friends.
“Sure. Why wouldn’t I do it?”
“Are you sure?” I take a small sip. Too much wine will go straight to my head. My appetite still hasn’t returned since Saturday, mostly because I’ve been dreading this moment. “Because it’s not just a date, I mean, it is, but we’d have to act in love and all that stuff.”
Klaus laughs and pushes off his stool. “I do understand the general idea of being a boyfriend and what that entails.”
A warm, calloused, and gorgeous hand covers mine, forcing both my hand and the avocado oil glass bottle to the counter.
“Look at me.”
When I do, he steals my breath. I’ve been able to hide my reaction to him for years. First I pushed it aside because I was stupidly in love with Roman, and then we were friends.
Are friends.
Right. Friends shouldn’t feel this way or have their body heat just because they’re in close, touching proximity to each other.
Someone should tell that to my vagina.
“What about Bailey?” Bailey’s his on-again, off-again cheerleader girlfriend with the local NBA team. She’s also a pre-med student and sweet as hell. It’s difficult to hate her even when I tried. And before Bailey, there was Barbie and Brianna and Bianca. Klaus has such a fascination with women whose names start with the letter B I hesitated to ever introduce him to Becca. Fortunately, Becca’s immune to his charm.
“I haven’t seen Bailey in months.”
“What?” I ask again. “I thought…”
“We weren’t serious. And she wanted something I couldn’t give her.”
“What’s that?”
“Commitment. My heart.” His steel-blue eyes are perfectly framed with long, golden-brown lashes that blink slowly. “I didn’t feel that way about her, so we ended things, firmly, months ago, and I don’t want to talk about her anymore. I’d love to take you to the wedding. In fact, I want to take you.”
A tiny little bubble of hope lifts my voice. “Really? You’ll pretend with me?”
His eyes bounce from mine, to my nose, to my lips before meeting my gaze. I swear that steely blue deepens into another emotion before he smiles. “Sure. I’ll pretend with you.”
A flutter of warmth skips across my shoulder, to my neck, down my spine.
Pretend to be in love with Klaus Newman?
I can totally pull that off.
But can I do it while hiding the fact I think I’m already halfway in love with the guy?
I guess we’ll see how good of an actress I am.

Fighting Dirty (Ice Kings #5) by Stacey Lynn Review

Fighting Dirty (Ice Kings #5)Fighting Dirty by Stacey Lynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stacey Lynn wins with FIGHTING DIRTY (Ice Kings #5). In this story, Carolina Ice Kings NHL player Newman Klaus has been in love with his best friend Jillian Stearns for years. He cannot believe his luck when she asks him to go home with her for the weekend and pretend that he is her fake boyfriend at her ex-fiancés wedding. Now he must get her to see him as more than just a friend. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult readers.

FIGHTING DIRTY is a heartfelt and fun story. Klaus and Jillian are great characters. They have been best friends for years and are wonderful together. Jillian's home life is a bit of a mess, and Klaus is excellent moral support. However, as much as they are great together, they do need to work on their communication throughout the novel. They have some heated misunderstandings.

The story is skillfully written and entertaining throughout. I appreciated that we got updates about characters from the previous books. I recommend this story to people who enjoy friends to lovers and sports romances. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
