Resistance on Ice by S.R. Grey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked Nolan when he was introduced in Destiny on Ice (which I loved btw) and I was excited to get his story. It was obvious that he had his life together, but as the story delved deeper into his character, I soon realized that it was all an act. He was building something good with Lainey, but as soon as feelings started to grow deeper and she started getting serious with him, he froze her out and sabotaged their relationship. Months later he realizes his mistake and tries to get her back in his bed. However, despite Lainey truly having deep feelings for him, he's been friend-zoned.
I really loved Lainey and Nolan's "friendship". It was funny to see them try to avoid their undeniable chemistry to one another to keep things strictly platonic. I knew that there had to be some past hurt to make Nolan the way he was and I was happy with the way the author wrote Lainey's character, making her as honest and open and awesome as could be. How long could Nolan resist?
Although I didn't love this book as much as I loved the first one, it was still an amazing story and it was great seeing everyone again. Benny's story is next and I know that boy has been fighting some serious demons. I can't wait to read the book that will be created for him.
