Arctic Heat (Frozen Hearts #3) - Annabeth Albert

This is book #3, in the Frozen Hearts series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To fully understand series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Owen has a new look on life after cancer.  He volunteers to help in the deep cold of Alaska for the winter.  He has to get used to being mostly alone.  Just him and Quill.  Cold and sexy man can be a great combination.

 

Quilleran AKA "Quill"  is mostly fine being alone.  Being hurt in the past has shaped how he has spent the last couple decades.  Is it time to let someone in?  Owen might be a city boy, but he is proving himself to be a great team member.

 

This book is what you call a slow burn.  I loved reading about these guys.  They have so much to learn and together it just seems simple.  There is quite a lot of sparks and heat for how cold it is there.  Great addition to the series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Goalie Interference (Hat Trick #2) - Piper Vaughn,Avon Gale

This is book #2, from the series Hat Trick.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and to better understand the series I recommend reading this series in order intended by the authors.  You can catch the review for Off The Ice, the first book in this series, by clicking here: OFF THE ICE REVIEW.

 

Emmitt has the opportunity to move up to the NHL, when a trade gives him the ultimate chance.  Not having as much family support as he would have liked - he still gives it his all.  Then he finds out there is a catch.  

 

Ryu is already a successful goalie who gives his team everything he has.  Then the challenge is given to work harder or lose your place.  This is normal for the NHL, but what he does not expect is to be attracted to his nemesis.  If only he could make the feelings go away.....

 

Such an exciting and well paced story.  I love the banter, the humor, and so much more.  The heat starts out sizzling and grows till it is almost a complete bonfire.  I was not able to put the book down, and eagerly read this in one sitting.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Owned By Fate - Sean Michael

This is book #5 in the Dragon Soul series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and to better understand this great series, I recommend reading this in order.

 

Mike knows he should be with his mate.  Being sent away has made him bitter and resentful.  If only he could forget.  If only he could go back in time and talk him into taking a chance.

 

Corryn knows in his heart who he should be with.  He has always known.  Now, with his mate avoiding him - his heart is one big ache.  Magic has helped him survive this long - maybe it will keep him warm while he waits....

 

Destiny plays a major part in this whole amazing series.  However, in this case it could literally cause a problem for these two characters.  I found this story to be both compelling and profound.  Quite frankly, this author's best work yet.  I was moved, and eagerly turning each page.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Loving A Warrior - Melanie Hansen

Matt literally runs into Shane the week before he begins his training.  When they see one another next, it is under high pressure conditions.  He cannot help that he is attracted to his buddy.  He just has to be a big boy and control it.

 

Shane is equally attracted to Matt.  Which will break and act on it first?  Being a SEAL is what these men want.  That means giving to their country, more than to themselves.  Shane is not sure he can choose that anymore.

 

I was truly impressed with both the characters and the information given about the scenario.  This was a really well written story and I could not put it down!  I loved the banter, and the humor.  I especially loved how real the book felt.  Like I was with them in the moment.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Game Changer - Rachel Reid,Rachelle Goguen

Scott plays hockey and he loves it.  He hopes to do it for a long time.  He is also starting to see how lonely his life is.  It is time he does something about it.  Not lying about who he is might be a place to start.

 

Kip is a barista who is thrilled to meet someone as hunky as Scott.  Never thought he would see him again, the flirting seemed innocent.  When he starts coming to his shop often, he starts to think there may be more to these visits.

 

This was a sweet and sassy book about two people meant for one another.  The banter is right on, the pace was nice and steady, and the heat was off the charts!  I loved this book and had a hard time putting it down.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
