When the gloves come off, she's worth the penalty...

Physical therapist Annie Davidson is great at her job but unlucky when it comes to love. She's just out of a bad relationship. A really bad relationship. All she can do is focus on work...that is until she runs into professional hockey player Alec O'Meara. She's a touch insecure and doesn't understand why he's interested in her.

Despite being one of the biggest players on the team, right wing Alec O'Meara prefers finesse over force. After the tragic death of his wife, he likes to keep things loose on and off the ice. But the red-headed Annie challenges his beliefs and makes him think about taking their relationship to the net.
The passion and fun they share is addicting and makes them long for more. But her insecurities that she's not good enough, and his anxiety over a long-term commitment will keep them apart, unless they can find a way to break through the defenses they've built around their hearts.

Kassiah: Okay, right off the bat, I have to make a confession. I can’t help but compare these Atlantic City Hustlers books to Sawyer Bennett’s Cold Fury Hockey series. There’s really no comparison–Bennett’s are better–but I could be biased because Bennett’s books are some of my favorites ever. Anyway, it’s driving me bonkers that they have the same character names. Which, is crazy because this series started before Bennett’s (I think). Regardless, I read them around the same time and just can’t stop comparing them. This book features Alec and the first book had Zac. Cold Fury has an Alex and a Zack. If the next one of these books has a Garrett (or a Rhett, I guess), I will scream. /vent

Now onto the story LOL I liked Simmering Ice more than I liked Flirting on Ice. I loved Alec and thought that he had great chemistry with Annie, who was a great character as well. The forbidden love is palpable, and I was rooting for them to be together. Just like with the first book, this is a fast, fun read, and I think all sports romance fans should check out this series.
