Avery Flynn brings us another Hot Romantic Comedy involving Hockey and a Loud Mouth!!
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 grouch 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.
Each book in the Ice Knights series is STANDALONE:
* Parental Guidance
* Loud Mouth

Fly Girl’s Review
I loved the last one in the series, so I had high expectations of this one too. Avery didn’t let me down. Her witty repartee and humorous scene building was just as great. How corny can you get to have them do it on a bear skin rug in front of a fireplace? Cheesy, I know but it works. To add insult to injury they are found by the cops on said bear skin rug…need I say more?? You have to read this one to learn about all this hilarity.
This whole series has been about a group of players who find love in the most awkward of ways and at what seems to be the most inopportune times. Avery somehow makes them all turn out better than they were alone and with great success at the end of each book. I was glad to see this one was no less outlandish than the first two books and kept me on my toes. When I thought a scene may have come to early in the book or the plot, she flipped it on me and made me wonder. If I had been reading this in paperback I definitely would have been wondering at the timeline. She does not follow your usually seen story lines with a slow build and then conflict. No she digs right into the sexy and then the conflict. But wait, there’s more sexy. Just stay tuned because it’s like each chapter is it’s own cliffhanger. Just glad she wraps it up in the end.
These two characters don’t seem like they have a lot in common other than their love for the game of hockey but after a while they realize they are both softies at heart and are dealing some messed up issues in their lives. They also both just want to have things go easy for once. Together they work to make that happen. She teaches him that it’s alright to hate the act, but perhaps the messenger isn’t always the bad guy. He teaches her that sometimes you have to trust your gut and know when to check and when to dodge…See I did a pun thing there!!
Seriously though, Ian and Shelby are both likeable characters who make a great pair and you can’t help but want them to find love with one another. Avery has a way of creating these characters we want to see win at something. And then she delivers the win to us. This one and the whole series are no different.
I’m giving this a 4.5 of 5 because I loved it. I’m sad to see the series end, but hopefully she keeps giving us spin offs of the Hartigan’s to satisfy our hockey tooth. The hunks really help too. Thanks Avery for another great story and can’t wait to see what you hit us with next time. This series was definitely a hat trick.
