Review of Ice Hard (New York Nighthawks #2) by Tracy Goodwin

“Oh my God, I’m on Scorcher!” 


Genre: Sports Romance (Hockey)

Length: 232 Pages

POV: Alternating First Person


Hockey’s resident bad boy is hell on skates. But when he falls in love, he falls hard.

Nick: 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. . . .

Cami: 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:

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept via NetGalley.*

Camille doesn’t date, especially not hockey players. She’s been there, done that, and got the emotional scars to prove it. All she wants is to take over her family’s restaurant, but what she wants means littler to her family.

Nick has seen his best friend find love and now it’s looking more and more appealing. He wants a happily ever after too, but the girl he wants it with keeps blowing him off. And he is persistent, although he won’t wait forever.

He’s fierce in his love for her.

Ice Hard is a great addition to the New York Nighthawks series. I loved the witty banter between Camille and Nick; it made for an emotionally interesting read. There’s humor, a little heartache, surprise encounters that sometimes can be very interesting (mostly funny), and characters who liven up the pages.

The only thing that drove me crazy was that Nick kept referring to her by Cami and Camille, back and forth, in the same paragraphs. It kept me from fully connecting to her because I kept stumbling. Other than that it was a very good book and I enjoyed the storyline immensely.
