Title: Fire On Ice
Author: Dakota Madison
Rating: 2 Shooting Stars

He’s Fire on Ice and she’s afraid to get burned again…

“You always think a guy is going to be different until he’s not.”

Firestorm Center Kian Kavanagh dominates the ice like a rock star dominates the stage. He’s the hottest new player to be recruited for the Firestorm, a newly established professional hockey team in Northern Arizona.

After Taylor Thompson’s heart was completely shattered by her high school’s most popular jock, she vowed never to date another athlete. And she keeps that promise through her first three years of college by putting up impenetrable walls to protect her from heartbreak.

But after a chance meeting with the charming and irresistible Kian Kavanagh, Taylor’s carefully constructed walls are in serious danger of being burned down by Mr. Fire on Ice.

Fire on Ice is about Kian a professional hockey play from the wrong side of the tracks, meeting Taylor a smart nerd who has been hurt by a hockey player before. They meet and there is an instant connection. Now all Kian wants to do is be with Taylor, and Taylor isn't so sure she should be with him because of her past. 

I have to be honest I didn't really like this book. I think the over all idea was good, but I just felt it was lacking some how.

1) I didn't like how towards the second half of the book it seemed almost like Kian changed a little bit. It was like he was a little bit of a pansy. I hate to say that, but it was how I saw him. He kept doubting being good enough for Taylor. And he even cried a few times. I was just frustrated with him.

2) The whole situation with the creepy guy that Taylor meets at her sister's theater part felt forced. Like it was added last minute to up the drama in the book.

3) I can not stand how it ended. There will be a second book. But I felt there was no real conclusion, and almost no point to this story. 

And lastly I just didn't connect with either character. I just felt there wasn't really a whole lot of back round information about them. So I won't be reading the next book.
