Resistance on Ice (Boys of Winter #2) by S.R. Grey
Resistance on Ice (Boys of Winter Book 2) - S.R. Grey
  1. R. Grey’s RESISTANCE ON ICE is a winning addition to the Boys of Winter series. NHL Right Winger, Nolan Solvenson, wants to get Lainey Shelburne back in his bed, but Lainey has put him in the friend zone. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Las Vegas.  It is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.

 

We first met both Nolan and Lainey in book one, DESTINY ON ICE.  Nolan is Brent Oliver’s friend/line mate, and Lainey is Aubrey’s little sister.  Nolan and Lainey were secretly hooking up.  They stopped seeing each other.  Now Nolan wants to start things back up with Lainey. However, Lainey wants more and has told Nolan they could only be friends.

 

Nolan is an interesting character.  He has a secret he does not want anyone to discover.  That secret has understandably left him humiliated and untrusting of relationships.  I like Lainey.  She is feisty and brave.  She pulls off stuff I would not have the nerve to do.  Nolan and Lainey are a great couple.  They have hot chemistry and similar personalities.  Lainey instilling the friend rule was the perfect call.  The two end up being very compatible and value their relationship more.

 

The plot was skillfully-executed.  A lot of fun and thrilling things take place.  There are some interesting dynamics in the story, including Aubrey hating Nolan, that makes the story thought-provoking.  I love that Area 51 made a comeback in this story.  I love that RESISTANCE ON ICE began and ended in a similar manner. 

 

I liked the introduction of the Coach Townsend’s daughter, Eliza.  I found it amusing she was a Capital’s fan.  She becomes a good friend to Lainey.  I am looking forward to her and Benny Perry’s story in book three, COMPLICATIONS ON ICE, expected to be released in August 2017.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

My Thoughts⇜ 

 

I would like to thank the Author for writing a story with the perfect blend of sexy stuff, angsty love, humor and some olympic inspired drama.  Everything about this clicked with me.  I loved it.  That's why I'm so bummed, that the second book in the series, has so many reviews that are two stars or less...

 

Narration is excellently done by Amanda Dolan, she has a great voice for this genre of book…and she did an excellent English accent as well (at least from this American girls pov).  Shaun Grindell did the male pov and he was good too, but I think I would of liked a more masculine voice for Freddie.

⇝Sex Factor⇜  Just the right amount of well written sexy scenes…

Destiny on Ice (Boys of Winter #1) by S.R. Grey
Destiny on Ice (Boys of Winter Book 1) - S.R. Grey

S.R. Grey’s DESTINY ON ICE is an amazing start to the Boys of Winter series.  Hockey star Brent Oliver spent too much time partying this summer.  As a result, his team assigns him a live in life coach, Aubrey Shelburne, to get him back on track.  Interesting enough, Aubrey just happens to be the same woman he woke up to this morning after the party at his house the previous night.  This contemporary sports romance primarily takes place in Las Vegas and Minnesota.  It is suitable for new adult and adult audiences. 

 

I like Brent.  He has a lot of pressure on him being the son of hockey great Billy Oliver; a two-time Stanley Cup and two-time Conn Smythe trophy winner.  He is the captain of the Las Vegas Wolves and dubbed “The Golden Boy.”  His two friends and line mates, Nolan Solvenson and Benjamin Perry  are his partners in crime.

 

Twenty four-year-old Aubrey is pretty conservative due to her career as a life coach.  She needs to set an example to the high profile clientele she is assigned to.  She stops in Minnesota to visit her sister Lainey to help celebrate her twenty-first birthday Wouldn’t it figure, the one night she decides to let loose she ends up waking up next to her new client.  Talk about awkward.  The two have a pretty crazy start.  Literally, they both think the other is insane.  Their conversations are very amusing.  They face some interesting situations and have great chemistry.  I love their bickering and how they try to get on each other's nerves.

 

They are admittingly attracted to each other, but they are off-limits to one another.  Well in theory anyway.  I felt bad that due to Aubrey’s confidentiality agreement, she couldn’t talk to anyone about her situation, especially her sister.  The Area 51 scene was amusing.  I enjoyed the plot.  It had stimulating twists.  The characters are lovable and well developed. I love how the story ended.  I enjoy S.R. Grey’s writing style.  This was the first book that I have read by her.  I definitely plan on continuing to read this series.  I am looking forward to Nolan’s story, RESISTANCE ON ICE.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

THE SUMMER GAMES: OUT OF BOUNDS by R. S. Grey
The Summer Games: Out of Bounds - R.S. Grey

Brie has made the Olympic gymnastic team and 2 months before the games Coach Winters is hospitalized. His son is chosen to take over from him. He is young and attractive and Brie has trouble staying away from him.

I enjoyed this story. I liked the alternate points of view between Brie and Erik. They are well defined characters with strong opinions. I like how they learn to be vulnerable and open up after many fights and misunderstandings. Once they are on the same page, it seems they are able to work together.

The secondary characters were fun. Lexi is educating them all. Rosie gets her first boyfriend at the Olympics. Molly has her first love at home waiting for her return. Erik's grandfather is cute.

The story is intense. It's well done and developed. I look forward to more books in this series.

The Allure of Julian Lefray
The Allure of Julian Lefray - R.S. Grey

I liked this. It was fun, it was sweet, it was hot in places. It was a quick easy read for me but I wasn't 100% into the story.

 

It was nice following Josephine's journey from relatively unknown fashion blogger moving from small town Texas to the Big Apple in the hopes of finding her dream job. Little did she expect to find love along the way.

 

Julian was pretty cool, too, though I didn't feel we got to know him as well as we did Jo.

 

Lorena was my type of girl (minus the drugs of course), she was fun, told it how it was and didn't particularly care who she upset in doing so and was very into her fashion designing by the end.

 

I'm not that into fashion but it was nice to see Josephine's journey unfold.
