Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Loud Mouth
Series: Ice Knights #3
Author: Avery Flynn
This is a contemporary hot and steamy romance, despite much of it taking place around an ice rink or ice hockey game! Anyone who knows me, knows I enjoy watching ice hockey so when I saw this fun cover and that the story is by Avery Flynn, I just couldn’t resist reading it! Actually, that cover had me fooled for a while as I’d assumed the story would be suitable for YAs and this is definitely much hotter and steamier than I’d a been anticipating.
When her Mum calls on the first day of her new job as a blogger for the Ice Knights hockey team, Shelby Blanton never dreamt of the problems it would cause with Ian Petrov. Her Mum reveals secrets regarding two members of the hockey team, secrets a journalist overhears and publishes, revealing Ian and his best friend to be half-brothers. Wanting to escape the angst, Shelby travels a cabin for her to stay in for a week, not knowing that the person arranging this stay has also arranged for Ian to join her. A relationship with starts with sharing shocking secrets and moves on to shocking with a taser is definitely not going to be bland! This is a romcom by an author who is skilled in this genre. The story is a light, fun read with some very steamy action. It is an easy, relaxing read, great to escape into.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
I never meant to say a word, not one single word.
But I did.
Now because of something I leaked—without even realizing it—I’ve inadvertently broken up one of the Ice Knights’ most legendary bromances. And worse—I’ve kicked hockey star Ian Petrov’s grumpy level to insane levels of grump.
And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it.
I’ve got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I’ve already done and kiss the sexy with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. But… would it be terrible if we gave in? Just a little? It’s not like we’re ever going to have to spend time together again.
Until the next morning when we’re told we have to play chummy for the press until this news cycle blows over. F.M.L.
