Ice Kiss

I am a sucker for sports romance and I was super excited to get an early copy of this book from Valentine PR, so thank y’all so much for this.

The plot seemed interesting enough; our FMC Gio gets a new job as a PR manager for a hockey team that coincidentally our MMC, Rick, plays on. It was an enemies-to-lovers, workplace romance which for me was hitting all the right tropes from the start, but definitely didn’t deliver. Besides general typos and grammar mistakes which can be expected from an early copy of a book, the story was extremely hard to follow. There were no smooth transitions between scenes and I was unable to picture what was happening through most of the book.

I made the assumption that this may be part of a stand-alone series which would explain why Gio and Rick hated each other from the start of the book, because from my point of view he gave her no reason to react the way she did. I also didn’t feel a connection to anyone in the story. I couldn’t predict how anyone would react or what was normal for them, because I didn’t KNOW any of them. It was very hard to feel anything (happy, sad, mad, etc) for these characters.

The plot twist at the end with Rick sparked some interest, but was quickly diminished when Gio immediately forgave him. He then overreacted again, and the book jumped months into the future before they spoke again. It was all over the place. While the book plot itself wasn’t doing a great job keeping me engaged, I thought the spice would. The very scenes we got were few and far between and took up maybe a paragraph to describe from beginning to end.

Overall, I was not a fan of this book and would compare it more to a Alphanovel or Wattpad read. Definitely had potential, but for me this was just not it.

Thank you again to Valentine PR for providing an arc in exchange for an honest review<3
