I never meant to say a word, not one single word.
But I did.
Now because of something I leaked—without even realizing it—I've inadvertently broken up one of the Ice Knights’ most legendary bromances. And worse—I've kicked hockey star Ian Petrov's grumpy level to insane levels of grump.
And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it.
I’ve got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I’ve already done and kiss the sexy with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. But… would it be terrible if we gave in? Just a little? It’s not like we’re ever going to have to spend time together again.
Until the next morning when we’re told we have to play chummy for the press until this news cycle blows over.
So I didn't realize this is the third book in a series, but it can be read as a standalone. Overall it's a cute story, but it felt rushed at the same time. I really would have liked more information and background on both Ian and Shelby; we can get a rough sense of what life was like for Ian, growing up with his dad (talk about a classic narcissist!) given how his dad acts towards the end of the story when he shows up, but more so Shelby and why she ended up with alcohol abuse problems.
There's a lot of back and forth between Ian and Shelby, I can understand Ian's knee jerk reaction to most situations, given how the shocking secret was leaked, but even right up to the end, Ian still doubted Shelby, so I don't blame her one bit for the choice she made as I most likely would have done the same thing (although that scene with Ian's dad was absolutely hilarious). Wasn't surprising who was the person that got Ian to pull his head out of his posterior, and I thought the epilogue was especially sweet.
