destiny-on-iceGoodreads Summary

Hot hockey superstar Brent Oliver has it all—good looks, charm, dozens of endorsement deals, and a spectacular career.  Uh, nix that last one.

Brent has the talent and skill that should have his career soaring. But something is wrong. He’s lost his hockey mojo and can’t get it back.  Enter Aubrey Shelburne, life coach to the stars.

Aubrey’s worked with some difficult celebrities, but she’s never encountered a guy quite like Brent Oliver.  Or has she?

Seems a reckless night of partying, one that had Aubrey waking up in a strange man’s bed, is about to bite her in the ass. That is, if Brent doesn’t first.

Fighting an off-the-charts attraction, Aubrey and Brent must learn to work together. But it’s not an easy task when they’re at each other’s throats every minute.

Is this relationship a disaster in the making?  Or is it destiny?  Washboard abs and sex toy mishaps aside, Destiny on Ice is a fun and irreverent romp that’ll have you swooning on one page and laughing on the next.

Review

I actually finished this book last week but haven’t had time to write a review until now.  I’m goodreads friends with S.R. Grey, and I read her first book, Harbour Falls, which I enjoyed.  So when I saw that she had written a book about hockey, I was interested.  As you may know by reading my blog, I’m a huge hockey fan.

Destiny on Ice is the story of Brent Oliver, hockey star who likes booze and women, in that order.  During the off season, after a pretty bad season and exiting the playoffs quickly, Brent heads home to Minnesota to party all summer long with his friends and line mates Benny and Nolan.  The team is not happy with him and summon him back to Las Vegas for a meeting with the brass.

Enter Aubrey.  Aubrey is a “life coach”.  Her job is to help the person she is assigned to get over whatever is “ailing” them.  There’s just one problem – Aubrey and Brent met at the last big blowout at his house and they pretty much hate each other.

Aubrey has to live with Brent while serving as his life coach.  She is instantly attracted to him, but is forbidden from having personal relationships with her clients.  I’m sure you can imagine what happens….

Ms. Grey did a lot of research into hockey and how it’s played, and I appreciated that.  She was serious about what she was writing.  I really liked Brent – he was really sweet.  Aubrey got on my nerves a little throughout but overall I liked her.  I will continue reading on in this series.

Happy Monday.
