Hockey’s resident bad boy is hell on skates. But when he falls in love, he falls hard.   “Tracy Goodwin is an author to watch.”—Kelly Jamieson, USA Today bestselling author of the Aces Hockey series  
As one of the New York Nighthawks, I’ve got it all: fame, success, wealth, plus I’m handsome as hell. As for my relationships? They could be better. I know how to do one-night stands, but I’m starting to crave something more. Then I meet Camille Benetti. She’s sexy, smart, sarcastic—totally my kind of girl. The only problem? Cami doesn’t date hockey players. But she’s never met me. . . .  
Nick George is impossible to resist. Not only is he scorching hot, he’s kind, he’s funny, and he wants me bad. But I learned my lesson the hard way: no jocks. So why do I agree to be Nick’s date to the wedding of the year? One night . . . that’s our deal. He is the best man, after all. But Nick is crystal clear about his intentions. He wants a relationship. And he’s tempting me to break all my rules. . . .   Tracy Goodwin’s seductive New York Nighthawks novels can be read together or separately: ICE HOT • ICE HARD   This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.


Ice Hard definitely packs in the steaminess, mix in that the hero is a bit of an alpha, yet sweet and kind. Makes Nick, a rather unique and intriguing character.

I truly enjoyed this read, normally I’m used to the hero being the one with commitment issues, but it was the heroine this time. She’s holding quite a few insecurities that stem from a previous relationship, but there’s also another reason that’s much more heartbreaking.

I honestly couldn’t handle how adamant Camille was about not having a relationship with Nick, even when they’re absolutely perfect for one another. Nick gets all the points for how patient and persistent he was with Camille, plus this guy knows how to make you swoon for days.

There’s a lot different elements in Ice Hard, loved the playful banter between them, also that they could reach other like a book, it was like looking into each other’s soul. I loved that Tracy touched on an issue that so many women could relate to.

My one huge dislike was Camille’s family, after everything she’s repeatedly done for them. They show zero appreciation towards her, what they’ve done was nearly unforgivable.

This one is definitely my favorite in the series and I’m hoping to see more of Nick and Camille in books to come.

major thank you to the publisher for the complimentary copy in consideration for a review. this does not affect my opinion of the book or review.
