Rating: 5 Stars
Official Blurb: Hockey star Nolan Solvenson is nothing short of skilled perfection, both on and off the ice. Or so everyone thinks. His teammates are constantly hitting him up for advice, but really, when it comes to his own life, Nolan can't seem to make the right moves anymore.
Blame it all on Lainey Shelburne, a woman he wants but is determined to keep at arm’s length. That’s why, after a few sexy encounters, he unceremoniously blows her off.
When they’re reunited, facing off against the fiery cocktail waitress becomes the challenge of his life. Lainey is furious with him for dumping her and wants nothing more than to kick him in the junk. But Nolan—typical man—is only interested in getting Lainey back in his bed.
That plan is shot all to hell when they reach a shaky truce and Lainey drops the bomb that all she’s looking for now is a "just friends" relationship with Nolan.
Take that, Mr. Hot Right Winger!
Suddenly, the "know-it-all" athlete is skating on thin ice as he tries to hide his burgeoning feelings from the one woman who has the ability to thaw his heart. But is Lainey willing to try a relationship with him again? Can Nolan resist the urge to walk away?
Resistance on Ice is a fun standalone novel and the second installment in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

Review: Of course after meeting Nolan in book 1, I couldn’t wait for his story and believe me it did not disappoint. Secrets lovers to friends back to lovers… count me in!
Lainey and Nolan have a secret hook up relationship they keep hidden, but Lainey wants more and Nolan can’t give her that so he lets her go. Now they are back together and Nolan wants their hot and heavy sexual relationship to start right back, but Lainey quickly places Nolan in the friend zone. Nolan would rather be friends with her than lose her all together. It shouldn’t be hard right?
At first, I thought Nolan was the typical playboy, but he has a huge secret that he is hiding. There are reasons he is afraid to commit, and it fighting his feelings for Lainey every step of the way. Yes, at times he was frustrating, but also adorably cute as well. I love how much of a spitfire Lainey is and how she keeps Nolan on his toes. Watching the change in Nolan was truly beautiful. And of course the chemistry between these two is off the charts. I love how all the characters are intertwined within the story and how Benny’s story is up next. I can’t wait to see what craziness comes from him and I have a feeling it’s going to be a thrilling ride.
