Simmering Ice - Veronica Forand, Susan Scott Shelley

Hockey player Alec O'Meara has not been interested in dating years after the death of his wife. That is until physical therapist, Annie Davidson, catches his eye.

 

I like Annie. She is smart and athletic. She is self-sacrificing, living in less than optimal conditions to help out her older landlord. She is a bit insecure, but who isn’t at some point or another. Considering the lack of support she gets from her mother, she turned out to be a wonderful person.

 

My heart went out to Alec for losing his wife. He is a good guy and leader. He is a likeable character. He has great friends.

 

I like how his team mates get involved in helping match-make, especially Mikael. I swear they are worse than a bunch of girls.

 

Simmering Ice is well-written and has a delightful plot. There were some unexpected twists, and the entire book was interesting. I could not put this book down. I look forward to the next book in the series.
