MELTING ICE–Seattle Sockeyes Hockey (Game On in Seattle 5)
By USA Today Bestselling Author Jami Davenport
USA Today Bestselling author Jami Davenport presents another Seattle Sockeyes hockey romance and the fifth book in her Game On in Seattle sports romance series showcasing alpha male heroes of football, baseball, and hockey.
Brimming with attitude and broken beyond repair, Isaac “Ice” Wolfe has a heart as cold as his nickname, and he likes it that way–until he meets his neighbor Avery Maxwell. Avery is unlike any woman he’s ever known. Her smile thaws his frozen heart. Being with her heals his broken places. She makes him feel, and for Isaac that’s not always a good thing. Isaac has burned every bridge in his professional hockey career. When he’s traded to the Seattle Sockeyes halfway through their inaugural season, he knows he won’t get another chance. He’s never been a team player, yet he needs to become one–and fast.
Avery has only wanted one thing in her life–to train and show horses. Her decision to drop out of college to pursue her riding career causes a rift with her big sister, but Avery is tired of following everyone else’s dreams. Now she’s following her own, and no one is going to distract her from her passion–until she meets a dark stranger and his cantankerous dog.
When Isaac is warned away from Avery by the team’s captain, who happens to be Avery’s future brother-in-law, Isaac sees the writing on the wall. It’s Avery or his career. To Isaac, a life without hockey wouldn’t be a life worth living. But what about a life without Avery?
Do Isaac and Avery sacrifice their life’s passions for their mutual passion for each other, or do they fight to have it all, even if by doing so, they might lose everything in the end?

He was like a drug, and she was high on him, his scent, his closeness, his blue eyes, his rugged good looks, his body. All of him. Everything about him heightened her senses and destroyed any self-preservation she might have. Any argument against casual encounters with near strangers ceased to exist in her brain, which crashed like a bad hard drive and refused to reboot.
He wanted this night to last forever, and he savored every moment from the twinkle in her eyes when she teased him, to the tilt of her head as she listened to him. Avery was bright, insightful, and not afraid to offer opinions different than his. He loved that.
And maybe, just maybe, he loved her.
Isaac had not only fallen in love with Avery, he loved her.
She’d fallen for the man, hard, and she didn’t think she’d ever get up. Wallowing around on the ground in love was a much better way to go than standing up and being lonely the rest of her life.
If he was the devil, she’d gladly follow him to hell, but judging by how he made her body feel, he was more likely a fallen angel who’d take her to heaven.
