Publisher's Summary

Praised by Wall Street Journal best-selling author Ilsa Madden-Mills as "the usual Grey crisp writing, lovable heroes that you kinda want to slap, and a heroine that doesn't back down," Resistance on Ice is another fun standalone novel in the best-selling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

Hockey star Nolan Solvenson is nothing short of skilled perfection, both on and off the ice. Or so everyone thinks. His teammates are constantly hitting him up for advice, but really, when it comes to his own life, Nolan can't seem to make the right moves anymore.

Blame it all on Lainey Shelburne, a woman he wants but is determined to keep at arm's length. That's why, after a few sexy encounters, he unceremoniously blows her off.

When they're reunited, facing off against the fiery cocktail waitress becomes the challenge of his life. Lainey is furious with him for dumping her and wants nothing more than to kick him in the junk. But Nolan - typical man - is only interested in getting Lainey back in his bed.

That plan is shot all to hell when they reach a shaky truce and Lainey drops the bomb that all she's looking for now is a "just friends" relationship with Nolan.

Take that, Mr. Hot Right Winger!

Suddenly, the "know-it-all" athlete is skating on thin ice as he tries to hide his burgeoning feelings from the one woman who has the ability to thaw his heart. But is Lainey willing to try a relationship with him again? Can Nolan resist the urge to walk away?

Resistance on Ice is a fun standalone novel and the second installment in the best-selling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

Hilarious and Sexy Second Chance Romance

What did you love best about Resistance on Ice?

I really loved the witty banter and innuendo between Lainey and Nolan. They had amazing chemistry!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Resistance on Ice?

The nod to a very famous scene and toy in Destiny on Ice (book 1 in the series) at the end of this book was hilarious! I loved that Brent even acknowledged that him and Aubrey saw the glow! LOL!

Which character – as performed by Reagan West – was your favorite?

Lainey was great, but Nolan was my favorite. Yes, he was a manwhore and yes, he made some seriously stupid mistakes, but his inner monologue was endearing and hilarious.

I normally prefer a male and female narrator for books with a dual POV, but I really enjoyed Reagan's narration and thought she did an amazing job performing both characters.

Any additional comments?

Nolan's sexual history may be a little hard for some listeners/readers to accept, especially because it's not really that far in the past. I will admit that I had to relisten to that part to make sure I hadn't misheard. It did make it harder for him to redeem himself, but that just made the ending that much sweeter.

Cute Hockey Romance

If you could sum up Resistance on Ice in three words, what would they be?

Humorous, Sexy, Sweet

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nolan - there are so many sides to his character and as the story goes on we get to see why he acts the way he does. There are times you want to hug him and other times you want to smack him upside the head with a 2x4.

What does Reagan West bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This was my first book by Reagan and I enjoyed listening to her as a narrator. She did a good job bringing emotion to the characters and bringing different tones to her voice for each character in the story. She did a good job portraying the chemistry between the characters as well which you wouldn't get with just reading the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I was looking forward to this book after meeting Nolan and Lainey in book one and this book didn't let me down. I didn't want to stop listening to see what happened next in the character's love story.

Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for my unbiased review.

I LOVED IT!!!

This book is a standalone listen and part of a series. The narrator on this book (Reagan West) is different from the first book (Tracy Marks) as the characters focused in this story are Nolan and Lainey with only small mentions of Brent and Aubrey. I loved how the author wrote the Point of Views for Nolan and Lainey. This book is well plotted and is full of some real issues. I loved the glimpses into the continuation of Brent and Aubrey's relationship and how Benny is doing, plus a potential love interest for him. Nolan and Lainey had such great chemistry. I think the author did awesome with this book in its originality and humor and steam. My review is my opinion of the book and not a synopsis. I hope that Benny gets his story told next. I so enjoy it when a book ends in a happy ending and has room for continuation with other characters as the focus. The narrator did a good performance with the emotions but didn't have as much voice differences for the various characters compared to some other performers. I was given a copy of this book and have voluntarily written this review.

Entertaining

The narrator did a great job bring this book to life
Book two in the Boys of Winter Hockey Series and this is Nolan and Lainey's story, Nolan is a self centred man-whore who doesn't do relationships that was until he met Lainey, the problem is he let his fear of commitment get in the way once before and he let her go, is is ready to commit now. Lainey is Aubrey's younger sister and also the future sister in law of his best friend and teammate Brent so she should be off limits what happens next finds the Hot Right Winger skating on thin ice, will Lainey give him another chance or will his secrets from the past get in the way again, you will need to read this book to find out.

This can be read as a standalone but it was the perfect follow up to Aubrey and Brent's story. I love hockey romance and this series is up there amongst my favourites, second chance romance mixed with humour and some secrets I was hooked from page one and I can't wait for book three Benny's story which I believe will be coming in the summer 2017. This is a must read series....

A great addition

This is fast becoming one of my favourite series. This is the second book in the series and is is Nolan Solvenson and Lainey Shelburne's story and one I thoroughly enjoyed. Between the two of them there were certainly some laugh out loud moments and sex scenes that burnt up the pages.

What happens when good time guy Nolan, terrified of commitment realizes finally that he has let the one woman who might just be his destiny go?

Lainey was so hurt by Nolan's rejection that when he returns to town for training, half of her wants him while the other half hates him. Matters are complicated as she is the sister of his best friend and fellow teammate Brent's fiancee. They managed to keep their relationship secret but now that he has come back for the season, things are about to get real in a hurry.

This book is a stand alone but I feel you would enjoy it even more if you read the first book in the series Destiny On Ice first. I love the camaraderie between all the characters.

The development of Nolan and Lainey's relationship, both as friends and lovers was great. The scenes were hot and made me melt and they provided several laugh out loud moments as well. It was also heart warming to see the love and support that Brent and Aubrey gave to the couple as their relationship grew.

I love S R Grey's style of writing and am excitedly anticipating Benny's story. Reagan West did a good job with the narration and certainly added to my listening enjoyment

Hot!

I love how their story developed. They love each other but fight the attraction so much and so long that it makes a great story. The narrator could use a little more work with not sounding so monotone but she did a good job. I did have a question for the author...is that toy real? =D

Ya gotta love a Hockey Player

This is a quick, well written and well narrated book. I am partial to hockey players and Nolan is my favorite type. Great player, respected by his team with an out of control personal life. I loved it!

I was given a copy of this novel by the author/voice actor in exchange for a fair, unbiased
review. That being said, I would have purchased this novel.

Good story and series

This is the second book in the on Ice series, they are all good and can read by themselves but you get to see the characters evoke thru out the series, the main characters are good even if a bit frustrating.
The worse part of the whole series is the narration
