Jaxon Holland is more than a top-scoring center for the Las Vegas Wolves—he’s also the biggest “player” on the team. Women love him, flock to him, lust for his sculpted body.
Yeah, life is good for this hockey player.
Or it was until lately.
After blowing a key play in what may have been the biggest game of the season, the fans sour on Jaxon. Good thing memories are short, right? Uh, they’re not when a widely popular sports blogger, known simply as Mr. Hockeypants, calls Jaxon out and places all the blame for the loss on him.
Life goes from bad to worse, and Jaxon wants to get away.
Good thing one of his teammates has a beautiful, secluded beach house he can escape to. Sand, sun, surf, and lots of alone time sound good to this disgruntled centerman.
Only problem is the beach house is already occupied—by beautiful and spunky Cara Milne.
Cara and Jaxon are off to a rocky start after an extremely awkward first meeting. Yeah, these two pretty much hate each other. But Jaxon, forever a “player” at heart, vows to win his housemate over.
What he doesn’t know is Cara is Mr. Hockeypants! His worst enemy, the bane of his existence!
And she’s determined that he never finds out.
Too bad keeping a secret is more slippery than ice, especially when you start falling in love with the guy you almost destroyed.
Player on Ice is the fifth standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.
|I have to say that I was extremely excited about this book. Jaxon Holland is a hockey player and after getting side tracked at a game which causes the team to lose and getting a scathing blog post written about him, he decides to escape for a while.|
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 and Jaxon don’t count on, is there being another person at the same beach house. Good god the whole book had witty banter, extreme sexual tension that you could cut with a knife and characters that just made the story so enjoyable you didn’t want it to end.
Cara is hiding a huge secret and when Jaxon finds out the truth, albeit not in a good way, he gets very angry. What they both don’t count on is feelings getting in the way. Do they get past this betrayal? Is there a happy ever after for them?? Well I’m keeping my mouth shut. I highly recommend you reading for yourself. I loved the fact that Dylan gave Jaxon some amazing advice, I really loved his book and this one is a superb addition to the Bad Boys of Winter series.

Boys of Winter is one of my favourite hockey series and S.R.Grey has become one of my go to authors, I love her style of writing, I love the perfect mix of humour and passion she gives us , every player in this series has a very different story to tell and even though we get bits from previous characters in each book they never take over another players story. I can’t wait for book 6 I’m this brilliant series and if you love rom-com’s or sports romance you need to start one clicking this must read series.
This 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 called Mr.Hockeypants, for one of the teams biggest losses, the only thing he can do is to escape the limelight and keep a low profile. When one of his team mates offers him the use of a secluded beach house, he jumps at the chance, only problem is that it is occupied by Cara.
Neither Jaxon or Cara expect to find anyone else there and it creates tension immediately. Jaxon is determined to win over Cara; what he doesn't know is that she is in fact the blogger Mr.Hockeypants.
What will happen when Jaxon finds out Cara’s identity? After all she almost destroyed his career. Will he be able to forgive her? Or will he reject her and the feelings that have blossomed between them?
Every time I finish one of these books I say I have a new favourite and yes I am saying this again.
I love S R Grey's style of writing, her characters are strong and have depth and I am excitedly anticipating the next book in the series.
Player on Ice is a fun hockey romance story between Jaxon and Cara. Jaxon’s last playoff game does not end how he wanted it too and to add to his disappointment, the Mr. Hockeypants blog rips him apart and blames him for the loss. He decides to escape to his friends beach house and finds Cara there alone. He doesn’t know she is hiding a big secret and she is afraid to destroy what they have built by telling him. Secrets have a way of getting out. Can their relationship survive when it does?
