Kenny Haskell's hard work and determination finally paid off last season when The Baltimore Banners called him up from the minors. That doesn't mean the quiet defenseman is willing to stop proving himself. Each day is a new fight, a new opportunity, to prove to his coaches, to his team—and to himself—that he belongs with the Banners. Kenny is convinced he'll be able to keep his head in the game with no problems—until he gets thrown out of a youth hockey game by one unforgiving ref who proves to be more of a distraction than he anticipates.
Lauren Gannon approaches life with a single successful mindset: take no prisoners, never give up, and always rely on yourself. At least, that's what she likes to think. The last year has been a little different. Being saddled with her younger sister who refuses to grow up and take responsibility for anything is turning Lauren's world into one crazy disaster after another. The last thing she needs to deal with is a professional hockey player who's too attractive for his own good—or for her sanity.
The one thing Lauren has learned in life is to never underestimate the unexpected, and falling for Kenny definitely fits into that category. Can they really be friends and lovers? Kenny does his best to prove they can. But when a sudden family obligation forces Lauren to choose between what she knows is right and what she thinks is expected, will she find herself skating on thin ice and risking the happiness she really wants?
Great Addition to Series
On Thin Ice is the eighth book in the Baltimore Banners series. As with her other books, the action is hot and steamy, so definitely 18+. While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. As a fan of the author's Firehouse 14 series, I love that this book features a few of my favorite characters from that series as well.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a good job of giving depth, thoughts, and emotions to these characters. You could really feel the struggle and turmoil that Lauren was going through regarding her sister. As a hockey fan, I always like the hockey action, but like how this book also highlighted the charitable events the players get involved in. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. But I would have bought it if I hadn't as I love this series.
