COLD AS ICE
By Cassandra Carr
Series: Buffalo Intimidators, #2
Publisher: Siren
Release Date: March 2012
Length: 42,807 words

Luc, Carter, and Jake make up the Buffalo Intimidators’ top scoring line and play together both on and off the ice, with a history of sharing women. Each of them is also a client of massage therapist Eva. When they decide they want to be more than just clients, they approach her about having a ménage a quatre.

Eva’s been secretly lusting after the guys for months, but was afraid to say anything in an attempt to keep her relationship with the guys on a strictly professional level. Besides, how could she pick just one when such mouthwatering displays of masculinity are spread out on her massage table every day? She agrees to the ménage, but when serious health problems begin to plague members of the team, will she want more than a quick score with her hockey boys?

Eva is the masseuse for the three top scoring players of the Buffalo Intimidators. Luc, Carter, and Jake all like her and decide to approach her about a relationship with the three of them.

One thing I did like that Ms. Carr did in this book, was detail the dangers of taking supplements without a thorough investigation of any problems that may be associated with them. The fact that the players blindly took them because it was recommended by the team doctor is a problem that has come to light in professional sports.

Eva is a strong woman that is also insecure about her place with the three men. Luc and Jake are older than Carter and are ready to settle down, though they were willing to sacrifice the chance of happiness is all three weren’t on the same page. I almost wanted to slap them ‘up-the-side of their head’ to make them get some sense.

Readers also get a glimpse of what happens in professional hockey and the toll that relationships for professional athletes may take. The emotions that come through after an incident show this fact very well. I am looking forward to reading about the rest of the team.
