Icing (Aces Hockey #3) by Kelly Jamieson from Loveswept: Release Blitz and Review

Title: Icing
Series: Aces Hockey #3
Author: Kelly Jamieson 
Publisher: Loveswept
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 19, 2016
Hailed by Jami Davenport as her “go-to author for hockey romance,” the bestselling author of the Heller Brothers Hockey series sets the ice ablaze with another sexy novel featuring the gorgeous men of the Chicago Aces.

Duncan Armstrong may be an NHL star, but he’s a country boy at heart. His ultimate fantasy is going home with the Stanley Cup, not a gold-digging airhead who aspires to be a trophy wife and nothing more. Newly single and hoping to enjoy a night out with his teammates, he ends up hitting it off with a down-to-earth waitress who’s a complete breath of fresh air—until Duncan learns that she’s a part-time model. He tries to forget about her, but their sizzling chemistry has him coming back for more.

Amber is working hard to put herself through school, and has zero interest in dating a professional athlete. She’s seen firsthand how fame and fortune can mess with their heads—her father’s brilliant football career ended in a firestorm of addiction and infidelity. So Duncan’s attentions immediately have her on the defensive. Still, there’s something different about him. And once she stops trying to freeze him out, irresistible temptation turns into all-consuming passion.

My Review:   Kelly Jamieson delivers another hot hunky hockey player for her readers to fall in love with in Icing, and Duncan Armstrong is his name.  Icing is a standalone read, but if you've read the previous books in the series, we have met him in those novels as well.  Duncan's had his fill of fame, fortune, and women, the last of which was a model who made him not want to touch another model with a 10-foot pole.  Amber Johnson is hard-working and headstrong, working two part-time jobs while she attends college, determined to do things on her own.  Amber models occasionally as well.  Due to past unpleasant events, she detests professional athletes and wants nothing to do with them. 

She meets Duncan while he is drowning his sorrows, contemplating his non-existent love-life, while at the same time, being glad to finally be rid of his latest money hungry model girlfriend.  Amber doesn't know he's a professional athlete and all he knows about her is that she's the bartender who is growing on him with each passing moment.  They soon find they have explosive chemistry, but they still have issues they must work around, and the process of all that makes for quite an interesting story.  Add to that a little hockey, a lot of sexy, and some sizzling romance, and you have the perfect mixology for a fun and sexy sports-themed romance.  Definitely add this one to your to-be-read list.
