Player on Ice (Boys of Winter #5)

Could it live up to its high expectations? YES, YES, YES.---This story revolves around a really great haters-to-lovers-romance. The banter between these two characters is so funny and the sparks flying...

Pretty quickly their relationship evolves and love is bloomed. Due to some hidden secrets and lies by omission they fall apart.

    Beware! The level of HOTNESS in this book is off the charts!Jaxson and Cara have tremendous chemistry which is sparked by their banter. Cara is sweet but her feisty side will not let Jaxson get away with anything.As hockey players go he is king of the ice both in looks and ability. So when he messed up in the last few minutes of a key game, the fans were very upset. How could he miss a pass and then get a penalty with only a minute to play in the...

    5 Star Review Player On Ice (Boys of Winter #5) by S.R.GreyThis has become one of my favourite hockey series. This is the fifth book in the series and is Jaxon Holland and Cara Milne’s story and one I thoroughly enjoyed. This book is a stand alone but I do recommend you read the previous books in the series as they are a great read as I love the camaraderie between all the characters. When Jaxon has the blame solely placed on him by a blogger c...

    I was given an advanced readers copy of this book and have decided to leave a voluntary honest review. This was my very first book by this author. Hockey is one of my favourite sports to watch on TV and live. I'm huge toronto maple leaf fan myself. So when I saw this book I knew I had to read it. Sometimes I do this myself we blame a certain player as fans. Now after reading jaxons story I see how wrong it is. I mean I will call out stupid plays ...

    "4 pucksThis was a good love story, but I predicted a lot of things before they happened. I still enjoyed the hate to love romance between Cara & Jaxson. Their chemistry and passion was off the charts. I would probably recommend this book. *ARC received in exchange for an honest review*" ~Lindsay"I really enjoy reading this series. I love to read sports romance novels, especially if they are about hockey. This in part is why I love this series, b...

    There isn't a book that I've read by the brilliant S.R. Grey that I haven't LOVED, but Player on Ice has become my favorite to date. Jaxon Holland is a star hockey player who has had his worst game during a do or die playoff game, and just when he couldn't feel any worse about himself, a popular blogger named Mr. Hockeypants makes it unbearable for him. So he has to get out of town away from the enraged fans who aren't going to let him live it do...

    The Boys of Winter series has been one of my favorite sports romance series. It has put a smile of my face every time and made me feel so much at the same time! Even tho each book could stand on its own as a read, in my opinion, you are more for the better to read them all. This series is more than just about the individuals, its about the team. And it shows in every book!The condensed gist of this story is that Jaxon plows a play that causes the...

    This is the first book I've read by S.R. Grey and I really enjoyed it! I'm a huge fan of ice hockey, so this is the perfect sports romance. Setting? My favorite place, the beach! Bad boy on ice Jaxon Holland needs to get away after getting bashed online for a terrible error in the last game of the playoffs. Alone on an island seems like the best place. Cara Milne may just be the reason Jaxon has to get away. Cara was supposed to stay on the islan...

    I voluntarily read an arc of this book. I absolutely love this series so much and this installment is no different. I am so enamored with these characters. I could go on reading this series forever. This is why she is one of my go to authors. She brings the hotness and the storylines are exceptional. Complex and loveable characters.
  • Patti Correa
    This series is amazing, and this latest addition is so far my favorite. I think I say that with everyone of them, LOL. S.R Grey is an amazing writer and person, she is just the sweetest. This book is filled with such brilliant descriptions of the beach, weather and love, that you just get sucked in and feel like you are there with Jaxon and Cara. My favorite is the little lizards, how much cuter can you get. The ups and downs of falling in love a...

She's a huge hockey fan, and her best friend Noelle's brother Noel plays for the Vegas hockey team, along with Jaxon Holland - the scapegoat in the team's loss and elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs.Jaxon is hated because of a blog called Mr. Hockeypants - I'll give you one...

    This was the perfect book to read right after the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup. I love sports romance novels - especially hockey and I was still relishing the fact that Washington won the cup and my boy Holtby will be bringing the CUP back to his hometown. So anyways .... I guess I should stop rambling about my love of Washington and talk to you about this great new book ... However, another fun fact was that the team that Jaxon Hollan...

    1970-01-01 on Ice is the fifth standalone installment in S.R. Grey’s Boys of Winter Series. This is my first time reading any book in the series and any book by the author but I am happy I did read it.

    I have to say that I was extremely excited about this book.

Cara and her best friend want to escape the everyday by going to Noelle’s brothers beach house for the summer. Needless to say when Cara has to go on her own, she’s a bit disappointed. What Cara a...
