Melting Ice
Game On in Seattle #5

Releasing June 15, 2015

USA Today Bestselling author Jami Davenport presents another Seattle Sockeyes hockey romance and the fifth book in her Game On in Seattle sports romance series showcasing alpha male heroes of football, baseball, and hockey.

Brimming with attitude and broken beyond repair, Isaac "Ice" Wolfe has a heart as cold as his nickname, and he likes it that way--until he meets his neighbor Avery Maxwell. Avery is unlike any woman he's ever known. Her smile thaws his frozen heart. Being with her heals his broken places. She makes him feel, and for Isaac that's not always a good thing. Isaac has burned every bridge in his professional hockey career. When he's traded to the Seattle Sockeyes halfway through their inaugural season, he knows he won't get another chance. He's never been a team player, yet he needs to become one--and fast.

Avery has only wanted one thing in her life--to train and show horses. Her decision to drop out of college to pursue her riding career causes a rift with her big sister, but Avery is tired of following everyone else's dreams. Now she's following her own, and no one is going to distract her from her passion--until she meets a dark stranger and his cantankerous dog.

When Isaac is warned away from Avery by the team's captain, who happens to be Avery's future brother-in-law, Isaac sees the writing on the wall. It's Avery or his career. To Isaac, a life without hockey wouldn't be a life worth living. But what about a life without Avery?

Do Isaac and Avery sacrifice their life's passions for their mutual passion for each other, or do they fight to have it all, even if by doing so, they might lose everything in the end?

My Thoughts:
Oh my goodness, I think this is my favorite story so far in the Game On in Seattle books. I found myself sucked into the story. We have a bad-boy hockey player who has a chip on his shoulder with the reputation of being
" the meanest, nastiest guys in the NHL...",
and he has no problem with it. Yep, that sums up Isaac. However, it's just his shield to himself from opening up. Boy does he have some serious baggage, like being blame for the death of his sister. Once everything opens up, it boils down to being dump at the time of the accident. The blame could go all around, but he absorbs all.

In the previous, stories you would remember Avery, and she's the one that is a little horse crazy. She always, believe that she wouldn't find someone who would understand her obsession with horses, after all her family doesn't understand.

Okay, I did enjoy Melting Ice, because you have two people that are similar in someways and way different in others. You have Avery who is sweet and somewhat innocent. By innocent, she's not harden to cruel world. While Isaac is keeps to his self and wants no one to get close to him. Yet, he's drawn to Avery, but afraid that he will rub his jaded self on her and corrupt. Yes, it stems from past experience. I love Isaac's break through and how he starts to open up to others and puts effort into building relationship other than keeping to himself. This story had me laughing, crying, and melting into a pile of goo. If you are in need to brooding hockey player, you might have found him in Melting Ice. Who knows you might just melt yourself.
