Holly Johansson knows some things in her life are certain after college graduation:
1.) It’s a long road to become a full-time author.
2.) She’ll need to work to pay her bills.
3.) And Dallas Demons superstar Matt Rhinelander will never return her feelings.
Holly knows her unrequited crush on the partying hockey player is ridiculous. There’s no way Matt would be attracted to a woman who prefers nights in watching TV or reading books when he’s known for his frequent bar hops and fast lifestyle. Obviously he would never see her as anything other than his teammate’s little sister.
Yet Holly is drawn to the other side of Matt—the man she knows has always been thoughtful and easy to talk to whenever she’s been alone with him. It is this Matt that fueled the crush Holly has on him. And she knows it will always be just that—a secret crush.
Or will it?
Because when Matt helps Holly through a crisis, her heart begins to believe that there might be feelings on his part, too. After a night of hard partying puts Matt in jeopardy with the Dallas Demons, can Holly be the one to save him? And when Matt admits he sees her as more than Nate Johansson’s sister, will it put both of them on thin ice?
*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
On Thin Ice is the latest instalment in Aven Ellis’s Dallas Demons series. Aspiring author Holly Johansson (Nate’s sister) has had feelings Matt Rhinelander (Nate’s teammate) for a long time. Feelings that she has always believed were one side, until one New Years Eve when everything changes.
As with the previous books it the series I enjoyed it. It was a sweet romance story that was pretty much drama free. Holly and Matt are cute together, and I like that, for the most part, they knew what they wanted and didn’t let others influences their choice. I liked Holly; she was an endearing character her list at the start of each chapter were fun, and she has made me want to buy some fun stickers to plan my daily activities. Matt is a loveable rogue who had been through a lot, and I did feel for him at times. Actually, I did feel for them both at times, due to Nate’s attitude I have always liked Nate, but in this one not so much. I knew he meant well and wanted to protect his little sister, but I did feel he was a little condescending at times. However, by the end, Nate had redeemed himself.
On Thin Ice was a heartwarming read with a delightful ending. With Holly and Matt’s story Aven has captured all those feelings you get when you’re with that special person who truly sees the real you. The person who’s your first love, true love, forever love and has your heart.
