a book in review!


Brief Summary

Sugar and Ice is the first full-length novel in the Rinkside in the Rockies Series by Aven Ellis!
Josephine Rossi has recovered from a broken heart, but has vowed that she's all about the desserts now as a recipe tester for Bake It! Magazine. Cheesecake never breaks your heart. Unless it cracks on the top, but still, it tastes amazing if you bake it just right. She knows what to do in the kitchen as far as making luscious desserts. Men? Apparently she's not so good at figuring them out, so she refuses to bother. Josephine knows it is safer to stay in the kitchen than to take another chance with her heart.
Denver Mountain Lions forward Cade Callahan is passionate about hockey, but is also about finding love. He thought he had it once, but a disastrous romance last holiday season has him keeping his heart in check. While he’s fearless on the ice, he’s guarded with his heart. Cade is determined history won’t repeat itself again. He won’t let his guard down until he’s certain he’s met The One.
However, Cupid's arrow might just strike when these two least expect it. When an oven goes out, and a cheesecake for testing has to be baked, and Cade just happens to live in the same building with a working oven...Well, things other than cheesecake might just heat up in the kitchen. Can these two passionate people learn to trust their hearts again? Can love override fear for Josephine and Cade? And will they find the combination of sugar and ice is the sweetest one of all?


I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Sweet, delicious, satisfying are all words to describe the sweet treats JoJo cooks up in Sugar and Ice, but also are words to describe the male lead Cade. This story has everything a romcom needs; laughs, a little heartache, and a TON of yumminess along the way. I highly recommend you have your fave treat on hand when reading Sugar and Ice, otherwise you'll be craving something sweet until you can put the book down. Which it's an Aven Ellis novel, so let's be serious, you won't be able to put it down. I really loved being about to catch up with Sierra and Jude in this story as well-you'll remember them from Hold the Lift. Aven gets another hat trick with this one, pick it up, I promise you won't be disappointed with this 5 star book, xo!
