ICE HOT (New York Nighthawks #1)

ICE HOT                                             TRACY GOODWIN

The Nighthawks are hockey’s new expansion team. They’re ice hot. And they’re all about the chase.

Christian: They call me a hockey god because I’m a beast on the ice . . . and off. Men want to be me and women just want me. But now that the New York Nighthawks expect me to lead their team to victory, it’s all work and no play. My eyes are on the prize. Until I meet Serena Ellis, a sexy, curvalicious blonde who doesn’t know me from jack. And just like that, I’m hooked.

Serena: I don’t do one-night stands—especially with celebrity jocks who date models. Lots of models. But the god of hockey is a temptation that’s hard for mere mortals to resist. And after the best kiss of my life, I’m ready to throw my one-night stand rule out the window. Except Christian Chase won’t let me. He doesn’t want a one-night stand. He wants it all.

MY REVIEW:
     Love Plus Size books being a BBW myself.  Especially one with a good story behind it.  This had some great sexy moments, funny, and the ones I really didn’t like are when Serena’s personal insecurities were used against her like all her bullies used to do to her was used against her by the one person that was supposed to love her.
     Because if Chris was headed in that direction of loving her it shouldn’t have been a personal attack to that degree when things were not in their favor.  He could have found all other kinds of ways to do it that didn’t go for her heart and soul.  Like he found someone new or the season is starting, and she was affecting his game she would have understood.  Yeah, but NO!
     Now, I get it’s a book and of course, it needs its dramatic conflict but in real life, I’m not sure a woman would take him back.  At least not so quickly.  Then again, he’s a pro hockey player and a sexy hot one so, yeah maybe.  So, there you go. 
     Their cute meet is very funny and that here is this pro player whose is caught off guard by this sexy hourglass New Yorker woman.  With her sassy mouth who has him tongue-tied, and he’s got no game.  When you hear all the time how most athletes are so smooth.  It is pretty funny.  But when Serena returns from the restroom in the change of clothes, he gave her his reaction is even funnier.
     Now the character I just loved is Ms. Savannah.  She is just a hoot.  She is an older version of her spitfire granddaughter, Serena will be her in the future.  God used the same mold for those two.
     Serena's transformation in their relationship is an interesting journey for sure.  She infects a lot of lives with her brash style of behavior but also, her bold outlook of how a person should not worry about others outward body shape but the inner self.

     I give this: 4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
