Release Blitz, Review & Giveaway - Resistance on Ice by S.R. Grey




Title: Resistance on Ice
Series: Boys of Winter #2
Author: S.R. Grey
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 10, 2017


Praised by Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills as "the usual Grey crisp writing, lovable heroes that you kinda want to slap, and a heroine that doesn't back down," Resistance on Ice is another fun standalone novel in the Boys of Winter hockey romance series.


Hockey star Nolan Solvenson is nothing short of skilled perfection, both on and off the ice. Or so everyone thinks. His teammates are constantly hitting him up for advice, but really, when it comes to his own life, Nolan can't seem to make the right moves anymore.

Blame it all on Lainey Shelburne, a woman he wants but is determined to keep at arm’s length. That’s why, after a few sexy encounters, he unceremoniously blows her off.

When they’re reunited, facing off against the fiery cocktail waitress becomes the challenge of his life. Lainey is furious with him for dumping her and wants nothing more than to kick him in the junk. But Nolan—typical man—is only interested in getting Lainey back in his bed.

That plan is shot all to hell when they reach a shaky truce and Lainey drops the bomb that all she’s looking for now is a "just friends" relationship with Nolan.

Take that, Mr. Hot Right Winger!

Suddenly, the "know-it-all" athlete is skating on thin ice as he tries to hide his burgeoning feelings from the one woman who has the ability to thaw his heart. But is Lainey willing to try a relationship with him again? Can Nolan resist the urge to walk away?

Resistance on Ice is a fun standalone novel and the second installment in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

Scene set-up: Nolan is not happy about being interviewed by radio shock jock, Marty Quick, and there’s a good reason why….


Marty finishes up with his Stanley Cup questions, and goes straight to the place that had me dreading this interview in the first place. 

“Let’s get to the good stuff, Solvenson,” he begins, grinning over at me like a perv. “Word on the street is you’re quite the ladies’ man.” 

Looking down at the tiny table that separates me from the host in what has taken on the feel of a far too enclosed space, I run my hand through my dark hair. “I don’t know about that,” I reply. “Rumors are usually just that—rumors.” 

He’s unconvinced, I can tell, but too bad. This is a question I plan to evade like my reputation depends on it. And it may. After I fucked things up with Lainey back in April, I was so distraught that I sought out solace in the form of a slew of strippers. 

And I don’t mean I found comfort in being with a new one night after night. 

Er, though I may have done some of that too.

“Aw, come on,” Marty continues in his patented taunting tone. “All of Canada—no, wait, all of North America wants an answer.” Shit, this show does have a far reach. “Is it true you banged ten strippers in one night?” 

I laugh nervously. “No, no, that’s not true at all.” 

It was actually nine and occurred over the course of two days, but who’s counting?

Not me. And not anyone else if I have anything to say about it. Besides, the only thing that matters is I’m not technically lying. 

See, that’s my shtick in life—being clever, outwitting everyone. I’m a wise old sage at the age of twenty-six. My teammates call me things like “sensei” and “Yoda.” And, hey, I’m cool with that. Why wouldn’t I be? It works out great for me. 

That’s why if I stick to the gray areas now with Marty, I can successfully evade giving him a straight answer for the next ten minutes, the time left in the interview. 

Yeah, you’re real clever all right. So clever you outwitted your own damn self with the shit you pulled with Lainey

“You look a little uneasy there,” Shock Jock observes when he sees me frowning. “You sure there’s not even a modicum of truth to that stripper story.” 

“Yep, I’m sure,” I snap. 

I need to get out of here, and fast. I’m done talking about strippers. And I’m done with this shitty interview. But most of all, I’m done with staying away from Lainey. It’s time we have a talk—a real talk.

And if talking doesn’t work, I’ll do what I do best—fuck her till she agrees to start seeing me again.


Resistance on Ice is the 2nd book in the Boys of Winter series it's told in a dual POV and although we got to meet Nolan and Lainey in the first book. It CAN be read as a standalone but if you haven't read the 1st book then you have missed out on an hilarious read in Destiny on Ice. 

Nolan comes across as a typical man-whore he's guarded and doesn't let people in easy. He never lets anyone get that close being vulnerable is just not something he allows himself to be. That is until Lainey but then he panics when Lainey's feelings grow into more, which leads him to acting like a douchbag and cutting ties with her but as soon as he does he knows he's made a huge mistake. When he pulls his head out of his arse is it to late to win her back knowing that he's broke her heart and trust.


Lainey is trying to move forward with her life but with struggling to find a job and the constant reminder that Nolan pushed her away its harder and harder. Then when he tells her he wants more can she put her trust back into him. Deciding to try to just be friends to start she feels is the best way till he can be open and honest but when the chemistry is that strong can they just stay in that friends zone?? Leading us to some fun and sexy encounters!!


So Sports romance? Friends to lovers? Second chance romance? we got it all within this read. This is a fun, romantic comedy that is hot, steamy, and sexy. With great banter between all the characters and is a great addition to the series. With the hints within this read i'm really looking forward to Benny's book later in the year this is definitely a sports romance/rom-com series you don't want to miss.






"Hilarious and perfectly 'played' sports romance that I devoured in one sitting! I can't wait to read more."
