WHY I READ IT
The Cold Fury series is one of my top sports romance series ever. As long as she’s putting them out I will be reading them!
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
The ice is a cold mistress. As the league’s most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he’s more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he’s just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who’s not blinded by his celebrity, he’s feeling the heat—and the pressure to save her from herself.
Between working two jobs and raising her sister’s kids, Julianne Bradley doesn’t have time for sports—or men. All she knows about Max is that he’s the sexiest customer to ever grace her gas-station counter. And he sees past her tired eyes and makes Jules yearn for things she can’t have: a glamorous fling, a passionate lover, and the time to enjoy both. Max makes her feel like Cinderella, even though Jules has enough baggage to crush a glass slipper. Luckily, he’s no prince—only a fierce competitor determined to win her heart.
WHAT I RATED IT
Max and Jules were such a fun and refreshing couple. I loved that she didn’t fall at his feet but, really made him work for her love and trust. So many of these sports character’s have women falling all over them or flat our rejecting them. There is rarely the in-between like we get in Max.
This book had a tough but true storyline. Poor girl meets rich boy. The media, friends, and family all questioning motives. Your hard work and dignity coming into question. I loved how this storyline was handled. It was written in a way that you could completely relate to the struggles had by both Max and Jules.
I also loved Jules strength and her vulnerability. She was the perfect combination of both. One thing that really got to me was the kids. They were actual character’s involved thoroughly in the book. They were a part of the plot that was written off and not really involved in the storyline like a lot of kids are in these books.
A nice story that flowed easily, kept me intrigued, and had all the feels. This series has been fantastic from book one and I hope there are many more in our future.
