A Hundred Fires
Fire & Ice Book 2
Angel Marquez Cienfuegos (one hundred fires in Spanish) meets Derik Grasso when Angel has a fight in Mexico and Derik joins Cristiano and Alex there to support Angel.
While Angel's careers is on the rise, his home life isn't all that great. Cristiano is his former lover and Angel has not gotten past that. Not only that, the Cuban government has exiled him for turning pro and will not allow his aging mother to leave the country.
Things change for Angel after he meets Derik (Alex's hockey buddy) because when fire meets ice, the chemistry is very steamy indeed.
Having read Fire and Ice, this reviewer was expecting a lot from the sequel. A Hundred Fires met those expectations and exceeded them. It is not only a story about how public and private personas intersect, but a story about overcoming backgrounds and how two seemingly disparate people can click. Lovely, recommendable read.
