“…she [Jaci Burton] always manages to capture the exact feeling I want to get when I read a holiday story.” ~ Under the Covers

Holiday stories from Jaci Burton are about my most favorite thing to read during this time of year.  No matter whether she does it in the Play by Play series or a separate thing altogether, she always manages to capture the exact feeling I want to get when I read a holiday story.  Jaci Burton truly is the perfect author to read any holiday season!

So here’s Drew and Stella.  We go back to hockey players, which I have a thing for, so I was very happy.  Trick has had an on again off again sexual relationship with Stella for a while.  He’s busy with his hockey career, she’s busy with her career as a dancer.  And while she’s sworn off relationships because of her past failed attempt, he may be ready to put in the work to give their almost perfect chemistry a permanent go.

Although I feel that this might be Ms. Burton’s tried and true formula (and I may be looking forward to a little different dynamic), celebrity sports player meets powerful career oriented woman who doesn’t want a relationship and then proceeds to convince her otherwise, I still enjoyed this story a lot!

This little novella packs a lot of sexy with a dash of sweet in it.  It’s a fast read, without a crazy amount of conflict, but just with a couple that are getting a second REAL chance.  I’m a fan of those.  Especially with a novella, I always find it easier to believe when there’s history between the couple.  In HOLIDAY ON ICE you can tell from the get go they are perfect for each other.  They get along great, they seem very relaxed around each other, and they have great sexual chemistry.  You can’t help but want to be hanging out around them!

This novella now leaves me wanting to know more about Stella’s sister and who she may end up with.

About Jaci Burton

Jaci Burton is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling, award-winning author of over 50 books. She lives in Oklahoma and when she isn’t on deadline (which is often), she can usually be found wrestling with her uncooperative garden, wrangling her dogs, watching an unhealthy amount of television, or completely losing track of time reading a great book. She’s a total romantic and longs for the happily ever after in every story, which you’ll find in all her books.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
