Series: Boston Terriers Hockey
Author: Jacob Chance
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: November 1, 2019
Oliver Ice, one of Boston University’s notorious hockey players, has been on my radar since I slammed into his rock-hard body during my first week of college, three years ago. He helped me to my feet, muttered an apology, and ran off after his girlfriend, dashing my hopes of a happily ever after.
Now, he’s the bartender where I work, and this time, very much single. Night after night I watch the tall, broad, and sexy right winger mixing drinks and being Mr. Personality, while I remind myself how horribly my last relationship ended.
But when Oliver overhears a private conversation, he offers to be the one thing I need more than anything– my pretend boyfriend at a dreaded family reunion.
One weekend was all it was meant to be.
How do I protect my fragile heart when the lines between fantasy and reality blur with our first kiss?

My Review of Iced: 5 Stars!
One of the aspects I enjoy about the Boston Terriers series’ (both football and hockey) is getting more insight on the secondary characters; those who have already had their respective books, and this that are hopefully coming soon. This was how I met Oliver; he was introduced in a previous book. From the moment I met him, I wanted his story. He seemed like a genuine, loyal character and I needed to learn more about this interesting man. I won’t go into any specific details but I will tell you that Oliver is recovering from a breakup. One he didn’t see coming, so of course he was blindsided. I was hurting for him, but I knew he was better off. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have given a second thought to Ava.
Ava has also gone through a breakup. And while I thought Oliver’s ex was a rotten piece of you-know-what, Ava’s ex was a jerk in the first degree. So, while Ava and Oliver navigate a platonic relationship, their true feelings won’t stay hidden for too long. This book is definitely a slow burn. I appreciated the slower relationship development between Ava and Oliver that much more because of the pace of their growing relationship. Their connection was believable.
I definitely recommend this book. And while Iced can be read as a standalone, I promise you’ll enjoy reading it even more if you read the other Boston Terriers books. They are all standalone sports romance with a side of comedy and filled with lovable characters. I can’t wait for the next book n this series!
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it!
