I was really surprised how well the book turned out. Leah is known as the ice queen and you can understand why. During her last performance she hurt her ankle. She is trying to make a comeback and is using the tour with Brady, The King of Rodeo, to make her statement to the outside world.
I love the two characters, opposites do attract each other. The banter between the two is humorous at times and others too hot to bare. The setting is remarkable considering all the places the tour takes the characters. In each setting you feel like you are right along with the tour yourself. You can feel the excitement of the rodeo at some points. The storyline flowed at the right speed; it is a page turner you will not want to put down.
The book is just right not too long and not too short. You don't feel like the relationship is fast or forced like other books the same size. The dialogue is wonderful with an underlying of not giving up hope. Things might change but works out in the end.
The best part of the book is seeing both sets of careers come together. Who would have though ice skating and the rodeo could come together and be the same?
Olympic medal winning figure skater Leah Fitzpatrick, dubbed “The Ice Queen”, is on the downslope of her career when she finds herself roped into a joint promo gig on the professional bull riders’ tour. She’s paired with “The King of Rodeo”, Brady Parrish, and although his looks could stop traffic, she’s got a future to worry about that doesn’t leave room for knocking boots with the sexy rider. No matter how hot he is.
Brady is at the top of his profession. He’s living the good life, and has no idea anything is missing until the cool Leah comes along. He sees something in her that hints at an underlying fire, and sets out to prove her nickname wrong. In the midst of their steamy affair, he falls hard. Blindsided by the potent combination of Leah’s beauty and vulnerability, Brady is determined to melt “The Ice Queen’s” heart.
