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.

    "Fun hockey romance! "

    Once again S.R. Grey was able to have me laughing out loud with these amazing characters she's created. I loved going back on the ice and catching up with Brent and Aubrey and really getting to know Nolan. This was my first book by this narrator but I would listen to other books narrated by her. I would recommend for those looking for a fun and sexy sports romance!

    "Meh. Disappointing."

    SR Grey's story is pretty standard: two people in a sexual relationship where the girl wants more and the boy is not ready to commit.
    I prepared myself for a cute rom com, but instead found myself barely able to finish it.
    The plot was very flat with not much happening. I found myself getting bored more often than not, and most of the plot lines did not contribute to the story as a whole and were just there to be... just there. The side characters were not exactly present in the story and so they did not have a lot weight or personality.
    I did like that Nolan's character seemed true to himself: he didn't just suddenly commit because the girl wanted him to, and he acted like an actual guy.

    The main reason it was hard to finish, though, was the narration.
    I found the narrator to be pausing at weird places, sometimes slowing down when it was not called for and sometimes speaking fast all of a sudden; the pace was weird and out sync, and it was hard to follow sometimes who was speaking. I do believe I would have enjoyed it much more with a different narrator.

    "My Thoughts on Resistance on Ice"

    This was another really good story from SR Grey. This was my second book by her, but I think I can comfortably say I'm a fan. The writing is solid and entertaining. There was no issue holding my interest in the characters and the progression of their story.

    Nolan and Lainey were a fantastic couple. They had great chemistry and it was so obvious they were made for each other despite previous thoughts from other characters to the contrary. Nolan had secrets and baggage and while I sympathized with him, I also wanted to smack him and tell him to get his act together. Lainey was just awesome. I loved her.

    As for the narrator, I liked her but I didn't love her. There were moments where it seemed she paused in unnecessary places, and I wish her attempts at a male voice had been a bit more distinguishable from the female. That being said, I would give her another shot.

    All in all I would certainly recommend this one.

    Story
    "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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would! It was such a fun book. I just loved the dialog between the Lainey and Nolan.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lainey was my favorite character because she was strong and sassy!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Lainey went to the strip club and had to dance.


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

    Yes because I loved it, but no because I didn't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it!!!

    "Do not resist reading this book!"

    Nolan resists his feelings for Layne because of his past. He is easy to relate to as we have all been hurt before. But the desire to have this couple finally admit how they feel haunts you throughout the story. Layne tries so hard to just be friends, but how can anyone resist a gorgeous hockey player? The resistance in the characters is so strong, as a reader you can feel the struggle. This is a stand alone book, but it helps to read the first one because if the "inside" pranks that continue in this story.

    Reagan West did a great narration of this story. She truly brought the characters to life. Ms West narrated the characters emotions and attitudes perfectly. She has a voice that is easy to listen to. All the different characters were narrated with a different tone so they were easy to distinguish. I would like to hear more of her work.

    "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.
