RATING: 4 Stars!
Hockey star Nolan Solvenson is nothing short of skilled perfection, both on and off the ice. Or so everyone thinks. His teammates are constantly hitting him up for advice, but really, when it comes to his own life, Nolan can't seem to make the right moves anymore.
Blame it all on Lainey Shelburne, a woman he wants but is determined to keep at arm’s length. That’s why, after a few sexy encounters, he unceremoniously blows her off.
When they’re reunited, facing off against the fiery cocktail waitress becomes the challenge of his life. Lainey is furious with him for dumping her and wants nothing more than to kick him in the junk. But Nolan—typical man—is only interested in getting Lainey back in his bed.
That plan is shot all to hell when they reach a shaky truce and Lainey drops the bomb that all she’s looking for now is a "just friends" relationship with Nolan.
Take that, Mr. Hot Right Winger!
Suddenly, the "know-it-all" athlete is skating on thin ice as he tries to hide his burgeoning feelings from the one woman who has the ability to thaw his heart. But is Lainey willing to try a relationship with him again? Can Nolan resist the urge to walk away?
Resistance on Ice is a fun standalone novel and the second installment in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
4 “on thin ice” Stars!
*SWOOON* I’m a sucker for a second chance romance and this one was so freaking good! I got the feels, I got the angsts, I got the funnies and I got the romance. This one is definitely going into my reread pile.
Being a huge fan of this author, I was thrilled to get my hands on Resistance On Ice, the second book in the Boys of Winter series. The first book was amazing but I think the author really dug deep to give us this gem. Nolan and Lainey were beautiful together. I felt all the turmoil Nolan was in. His resistance to anything good and his realization in what he lost when he let Lainey go was heartbreaking. Lainey learning to trust and love again caught me right in the feels. These two were destined to be together but fear and mistrust was a huge deterrent in their HEA.
Deciding to be friends to learn to trust again was a great judgment call, but with their passion, their sexual tension and their feelings combined, just being friends was never really an option for these two and I loved watching them fall deeper into one another. And their chemistry? Sweet and HOT, HOT, HOT!
S.R. Grey really knows how to deliver a sexy, intense, romantic punch with her amazing writing, her fun and exciting stories and her down to earth, connectable characters. Nolan was positively delectable and Lainey was such a sassy, terrific heroine. I didn’t want their story to end but I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for us next in this series.
Though other characters from the first book make an appearance, this one is written in such a way that it can be read as a standalone. However, that being said, the first book was excellent and I loved the friendships between the characters. They add a bit of delight to the story as well as it’s fun to see how Aubrey and Brent's relationship has continued.
