Dylan Culderway is more than hockey’s top defenseman. He’s the kind of guy who’s always there to help a friend. Plus, he’s a true gentleman. More importantly, certainly to the ladies, is that Dylan is hot enough to melt ice.
Dylan’s no womanizer, though. He doesn’t have time for love. Seems he’s too busy running away from his past.
Or is he running to his past?
When Dylan meets Chloe Tettersaw, the pretty new girl in town, everything changes. A relationship and love are no longer off the table. But it’s not all smooth sailing. When a mysterious stalker makes Chloe’s life a living hell the couple find themselves, and their burgeoning love, tested.
Little does Dylan know this may be his chance to rewrite history . . . and maybe this time he can make things right.
The past and present are about to collide for Dylan and Chloe.
Are they ready?
Can it heal their damaged souls?
Or will it tear them apart?
Caution on Ice is the fourth standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

I roll my head to the right to discover Dylan is indeed heading this way.
Eek! All my head-rolling and chin jerking, not to mention the puck bunny comment, have probably come off as mating signals, because here…he…comes.
No, I’m all sweaty and gross. This is not the time to meet a hot hockey player.
I grab Graham’s arm and plead, “Save me?”
“Ha,” he replies, vengeful and smug. “Not a chance. You’re on your own, Miss K-Y.”
He starts walking away and I call out, “I thought you weren’t still mad about that? You said yourself it was over twelve years ago.”
Too late, Graham’s retreated to the neutral zone—the men’s locker room.
And the hockey player is closing in.
I turn to face him, flipping my ponytail and flashing my most winning smile.
“Hi,” I breathe out, adding in a cute wave for good measure.
But it’s all for naught—gorgeous Dylan walks right by me like I’m not even there.
I realize then he was on his way to the locker room the whole time. He wasn’t coming over to meet me, not at all.
I’m mortified. I’ve just made the biggest fool of myself.
And then it gets worse—he turns back around like it just dawned on him I said something.
“Did you just say hi to me?” he asks from a few feet away.
He’s so mesmerizingly handsome that all I can do is murmur, “Uh-huh.”
His eyes, a rich complex brown, scan me from head to toe. So I go ahead and do the same to him. Now that he’s closer it’s clear he has a really cool tattoo that starts at his left bicep and continues up to his muscular shoulder. From there, it disappears around to his back. Though I can’t see the whole thing, I can tell it’s a dragon.
Hmm, a symbol of strength, I think to myself. A strong friend would be good to have.
And how very timely, seeing as the next step in the X Your Ex program is “Make a New Friend.”
Too bad it’s not “Have a Night of Wild Sex with a Hot Dude.” I could get on board with that one. But then again, maybe not since that’s not really me.
“So friends it is,” I mumble under my breath.
“What’s that?” he says. “I couldn’t hear you.”
Suddenly, I realize I have seen him before—on the big-ass TV Graham bought me. He is a hockey player, and a really good one at that. Graham wasn’t messing with me. It’s just taken me a few minutes to place the name and put it with the face.
And, oh, what a face…
Back to Graham, I feel bad now. Sighing, I say, “Jeez, maybe I shouldn’t have brought up the K-Y.”  
Uh-oh, I just said that a little too loudly. Dylan heard, for sure. The smirk on his face leaves no doubt.
Oh, great. Now he’s going to think I’m a nut, a weirdo, and a pervert, all rolled into one. I’m really batting a thousand here.
“K-Y?” He raises a brow. “Should I even ask?”
Chuckling, I reply, “No, probably not. I was just thinking about my brother.”
Oh, crap!
Now he’s eyeing me like I’m some sort of sicko.
Now I’m a nutty weirdo pervert who associates K-Y jelly with her brother.
Ready to melt into the floor, I say, “Can we just start this whole conversation over?”
“Sure,” he says, laughing and sticking out his hand. “Hi, I’m Dylan.”
I shake his hand and reply, “Hey, Dylan. I’m Chloe, Chloe Tettersaw.”
"Hilarious and perfectly 'played' sports romance that I devoured in one sitting! I can't wait to read more." - #1 NYT Bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken
"The usual Grey crisp writing, lovable heroes that you kinda want to slap, and a heroine that doesn't back down," Resistance on Ice is another fun standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.” - Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills

This book was so much more than I expected! It had so many elements that kept me hooked on reading!
Dylan Culderway is a defenseman hockey player and having a bit of a rough time atm, needless to say when he meets Chloe, things start to get a whole lot better!
He's like my dream fictional character! I sighed, swooned and really was rather jealous of Chloe....I'm totally serious!!
Dream guy....Dylan Culderway!!!

His care, his beautiful heart just made me fall in love with him!!
I really liked Chloe, her ability to get ahead of her awful ex, I admired her! But things don't always come easy for her when she has a stalker!! The element if suspense was so good i couldn’t put the book down, Ijust had to know what will happen!
This would have to be my favourite book of the series! Well done to the author on writing such a beautiful masterpiece!

I was excited to be back with the Boys of Winter and book four Caution on Ice did not disappoint once again we got a book that was fun, witty and romantic. S.R. Grey certainly knows how to write a great hockey rom-com and I hope there is more to come in this series.
Dylan is struggling with guilt over not protecting his mother against his abusive stepfather and the guilt is transforming into anger, gone is the nice guy he used to be, enter the anger man who needs some help. Dylan is sent to a specialist gym to try and sort his issues out and that where he meets Chloe who is trying to rebuild her life after leaving her abusive partner.  Two people struggling with issues but she becomes his calming influence, she gives him the peace he needs and he becomes her strength and gets her believing in people again, they need each other to move forward.
This is a beautifully written love story with the perfect mix of humour and witty banter, I love the strong characters who are intent on helping each other even though they have their own issues. This series is becoming one of my favourites and just when I think it can’t get any better this author scores with another five star read. Great job with this brilliant series S.R.Grey.

This is fast becoming one of my favourite series. This is the fourth book in the series and is is Dylan Culderway and Chloe Tettersaw’s story and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

This book is a stand alone but I feel you would enjoy it even more if you read the first book in the series Destiny On Ice first. I love the camaraderie between all the characters.

The development of Dylan and Chloe’s relationship, both as friends and then lovers was great. Their was plenty of drama, suspense and intrigue and I loved how Dylan and Chloe faced it down together. I will admit that I would love a Dylan Culderway in my life, he ticks all the right boxes in so many ways.

Dylan is a loyal friend, willing to give his all for those he cares about and Chloe soon becomes extremely important to him. When danger and trouble from Chloe's past confronts her she realises that Dylan is going to stand beside her, no matter what. His strength will become hers and the chemistry between them is so hot it is almost overpowering.

I love S R Grey's style of writing, her characters are strong and have depth and am excitedly anticipating the next book in the series.
