Holy Freaking Moly Batman! This book was thrilling, chilling, suspenseful, oh my lanta…it was a crazy ride! Eek! Did I mention it was a romantic love story too? Good lord, I just can’t even right now! I have found a new go to author if I’m basing it off of my first impression with this book…Just wow, it was deep, a bit dark, gritty, and raw…I can’t wait for the next book in this series! ~ Angela
Rating 5 Stars
I can honestly say this was the FIRST sports romance that I quite enjoyed. The emotions and love ran so strong in this book that it would give me goosebumps at times. I really found myself rooting for the characters to find happiness after all the CRAZY SHIZ that happens. Most importantly I realized Hockey is cold and brutal and ultimately HOT AF!!
Kieran….yes, loveddddd this character..he sounded delish let’s be honest, but honestly Cooper was my MAN. He was just so vulnerable like a giant hockey teddy bear. Defiantly some tear jerker moments swirled in with all that love, it was an emotional roller coaster & a bumpy ride.
P.S. Anyone else get a little too excited when all those mouth-watering teammates were all in one place? Yeah…my mind went to some FUN places ; ~ Samantha

Figggy was an amazing leading lady
Wow! This book really blew me away. I don’t even know how to talk about it with out ruining it. I’ll try my hardest. Being my first book by this author, I have a feeling that I am going to become a mega stalker waiting for more books in this series to come out.
Figggy was an amazing leading lady. She did everything she had to to take care of her sister, at the cost of so much. I loved seeing her go from this broken heroine to a strong woman who stood up for her self.
Kieran was so different then I thought he would be. I expected this hard t shot player and so surprised how the author had written him. I loved him so hard and how he protected Figgy and Aqua was so heart felt!
So while it’s a sports type romance, that was just one facet of the story. This was pretty much instalove, but it worked so well for these characters. The darkish subject matter was written beautifully. It wasn’t glossed over, but had enough detail that I felt for Figgy.
The secondary characters are a huge part of this story and I loved all of them. We get a sense that something is going to happen with some of them, and I can’t filming wait!
Overall, the author did an amazing job at pulling me into the story, and at the same time, she kept me hooked. The characters were well thought out, the writing was great, and the ending, oh man! I can’t wait for more books in this series. If you’re looking for something that is instalove, with angst and humor, heat and darkness then you will really enjoy this book! I’m giving it 4 stars because something’s didn’t add up and some things were a little predictable ~ Jessica

All the feels and a few WTH moments
This book was a whirlwind of emotion. I found myself fist pumping YES and screaming NOOOO.
I teared up and said awww. It is heartache and tragedy and lobe all rolled into one story.
Then just when you think there is nothing else you say WTF??!!
It is a must read. I am all bouncy because I want the next book in the series like right now!! Is that too much to ask for?? ~ Angela L

Figueroa is an Olympic Skater, Kiieran is a pro hockey player. They met one day after Figgy and her sister Aqua were shown on the kiss cam at one of Kieran’s games. They things they go through will leave you on the edge of your seat. There are surprises along the way. Things that you don’t see coming at all. I totally loved this book and can’t wait for the next one. ~ Nancy

They promised that dreams could come true.
Forgetting to mention that nightmares were dreams, too.
Demons came in all shapes and sizes.
I learned this the hard way.
I may have been broken, but I was still strong.
Scars are souvenirs that stay with you forever.
Etched on your body.
Etched on your mind.
Etched on your soul.
A constant reminder.
My reminder to never give up. To never forget.
I told myself I was fine, brushing my pain off as unimportant.
I went through life alive, but never truly living.
Her haunted eyes pulled me in, familiarity etched in her gaze.
Her beauty hypnotized me, heart and soul.
Snaring me into her trap.
Wanting each other was unexpected.
Needing each other was necessary.
Our broken souls fused together.
Piece by piece.
I could have f****** sworn that she was my salvation.
But was it possible that she was my destruction, instead?
