Icing (Aces Hockey #2) by Kelly Jamieson
Hailed by Jami Davenport as her “go-to author for hockey romance,” the bestselling author of the Heller Brothers Hockey series sets the ice ablaze with another sexy novel featuring the gorgeous men of the Chicago Aces.
Duncan Armstrong may be an NHL star, but he’s a country boy at heart. His ultimate fantasy is going home with the Stanley Cup, not a gold-digging airhead who aspires to be a trophy wife and nothing more. Newly single and hoping to enjoy a night out with his teammates, he ends up hitting it off with a down-to-earth waitress who’s a complete breath of fresh air—until Duncan learns that she’s a part-time model. He tries to forget about her, but their sizzling chemistry has him coming back for more.
Amber is working hard to put herself through school, and has zero interest in dating a professional athlete. She’s seen firsthand how fame and fortune can mess with their heads—her father’s brilliant football career ended in a firestorm of addiction and infidelity. So Duncan’s attentions immediately have her on the defensive. Still, there’s something different about him. And once she stops trying to freeze him out, irresistible temptation turns into all-consuming passion.

I really enjoyed this book, I hadn't got to read any hockey books lately and I love me some sexy athletes. Duncan was such a sweetie and I wish i had met him lol. I felt sorry for him having to deal with the idiot in the beginning of the book, but was so happy when he sent her to the curb. Now while I loved Duncan I have to say I was thinking I didn't like the Amber character as much. Simply because she is constantly trying to find something wrong with ever situation it seems. He would buy this she would bitch about it, he would try to help out she would ignore him....and on and on it went.
Now don't get me wrong, I really did love the book, I just wanted to bitch slap that girl at times lol. I'm rating it in at 4 stars and can't wait for the next one.
