Review: Slap Shot

Slap Shot
Slap Shot by Lily Harlem

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you have ever met a guy who starts the conversation off with a string of pick up lines, you know he is either a complete douche-bag or he’s sexy specimen of a man masquerading as a comical genius.

“I’m Rick by the way.” ”Remember that, darlin’, ‘cause you’ll be screaming it later.” HELL YEAH! Ding! Ding! Ding! Sign me up for that, please!

When professional hockey player, Rick “Ramrod” Lewis meets Dana for the first time, he showers her with his best one-liners – what does that get him? Nothing but an exaggerated eye-roll and a view of her ass and elbows as she scurried in the opposite direction! Wild animals are skittish and tend to scamper away when you get too close. That is exactly what Dana is like and exactly why the nickname eventually bestowed on her by Rick Ramrod Lewis is so perfect...though the nickname was derived from something else entirely.

Dana is the type of heroine I really enjoy getting to know. She is strong, sexy, sassy and successful. Dana’s former life as a dancer is definitely something she would rather not revisit - her sights are set on her future and she is convinced that Mr. Famous is not part of that picture. Rick is determined to make her see otherwise because he is confident that she is the perfect woman to share his life with. The Angel on Dana’s shoulder urges her to remain focused on her career, but after 2 years of no sex, the Devil is yelling at her to get a life and taste just a little of the sin Rick is offering.

Wouldn’t you know it, just as Rick begins to make some headway with Dana, a psycho-stalker surfaces from his past and is determined to have Rick all to herself. Rick’s crazy one-night stand targets Dana, turning her newly perfect world upside down, which is exactly what Dana was hoping to avoid.

SLAP SHOT, the third book in the HOT ICE series, is surprisingly suspenseful, but just as sexy as Lily Harlem’s previous two books. If you are looking for a great steamy story featuring an ex-bad girl heroine and a celebrity hero you can’t help but love, then you will definitely want to get this book!
