Icing by Kelly Jamieson WITH Review

Title: Icing
Series: Aces Hockey #3
Author: Kelly Jamieson 
Publisher: Loveswept
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 19, 2016


Hailed by Jami Davenport as her “go-to author for hockey romance,” the bestselling author of the Heller Brothers Hockey series sets the ice ablaze with another sexy novel featuring the gorgeous men of the Chicago Aces.

Duncan Armstrong may be an NHL star, but he’s a country boy at heart. His ultimate fantasy is going home with the Stanley Cup, not a gold-digging airhead who aspires to be a trophy wife and nothing more. Newly single and hoping to enjoy a night out with his teammates, he ends up hitting it off with a down-to-earth waitress who’s a complete breath of fresh air—until Duncan learns that she’s a part-time model. He tries to forget about her, but their sizzling chemistry has him coming back for more.

Amber is working hard to put herself through school, and has zero interest in dating a professional athlete. She’s seen firsthand how fame and fortune can mess with their heads—her father’s brilliant football career ended in a firestorm of addiction and infidelity. So Duncan’s attentions immediately have her on the defensive. Still, there’s something different about him. And once she stops trying to freeze him out, irresistible temptation turns into all-consuming passion.

5 Stars

I was given this book for a honest review and that's what you will get.

Icing by Kelly Jamieson, starts out when Duncan Armstong, professional hockey player dumps his girlfriend and swears off women because he thinks they are all out to take him on a financial ride. He confides his commitment to Amber Johnson, the newest waitress at the Sin Bin. The hip new bar owned by a player on Duncan's team. Amber is trying to make ends meet, and put herself though college after a scandal leaves her family broke, and her father in prison. As sparks fly, not only in the sheets, but as the battle or wills with Duncan doing everything he can to help her, and Amber doing everything she can to stop him. Is it all an act to get Duncan's money or fame? What family secrets is Amber hiding about her past? Can Duncan look past what he learns from Amber's mom?

Wow!!! I have read a lot of books and this one will stick with me for a long time. The style of writing and the plot were both impeccable. This author knows how to write where you feel you are right in the characters shoes. I was amazed with Amber, the hard core independence that she strives for throughout the book. Duncan, the farm boy that lives in the big city but never truly gives up his roots. I just can't say enough about this book. This will definably be one of the books that I will have to re read. I felt this author has an amazing book and she couldn't have written a better book.
