They call me the #DirtyGentleman.
My reputation precedes me. I’m forward on the ice and in the bedroom With a filthy mouth and impressive moves. I always get the job done.
I have my future all planned out: Get laid often. Graduate. Land the job of my dreams.
Sounds easy. Right? It was until Delaney Dixon burst into my life.
Eyes as warm as melted chocolate. A sexy smile. And a pair of Double-Ds that sends men to their knees in gratitude.
She’s broken, hiding from a secret past, and refuses to let me in. But just like my game, I never quit.
She gave me one night.
But I want forever.
Review by Christine:
Fire and Ice by Rhonda James is a sexy love at first sight romance between a college hockey star and a feisty dance major which reads like a fine red wine – allowing it to breathe and savor it. Derek Davis knows as college is coming to an end so is his hockey career. Making plans for his career brings Derek to Atlanta for an interview but he never thought a sexy brunette would barge into his life and his heart. Delaney Dixon has guarded herself from everyone since losing her family. Classmates snub their nose at her choice of employment and rumors are spread like wildfire across the campus. For one night Delaney lets her guard down and lets in the sexy as sin blonde in the Armani suit who’s blue eyes she gets lost in but it’s for only one night right?
I love this series and Fire and Ice stands as a excellent follow up to Jersey Girl (one of my favorite reads of 2016). The chemistry between Derek and Delaney is off the charts and no one can deny these two are meant for each other. Following our #DirtyGentleman realize he’s falling for the girl was refreshing. Delaney has had a couple of horrible years and is struggling to hold on to anything that reminds her of a time when her family was together. Reading this struggle was heartbreaking and painful but watching her allow herself to be loved was refreshing. Getting a glimpse of the rest of our GLU favorites was fantastic. Seeing B and Cassie so in love is infectious and you see why the boys are wanting what these two have. I really thought how do you top B, we all loved him but I knew Davis has something different and itched for his story. Rhonda did not disappoint and gave us something with a different feel but with the same world we fell in love with in Jersey Girl. I love me some #VitaminD. 4.5 Stars for Fire and Ice by Rhonda James
