Review: Thin Ice

Thin Ice
by Liana Laverentz

The last thing ER doctor Emily Jordan needs in her life is another man to let her down, and certainly not one who uses his fists in his work. She’s seen enough of the results of violence in the world, and has no use for anyone who contributes to it.

Professional hockey player Eric Cameron has never met a woman who intrigued him so much. Emily Jordan has it all…brains and beauty, a home of her own, a career she excels at, a son who adores her, and loving friends and family to help her bring it all together in way Eric has longed to be a part of his entire life. The problem is this feisty, independent woman wants nothing to do with him and has no problem letting him know it.

The memory of Emily’s healing hands despite her clear-cut opinion of him when she treats him after a post-game barroom brawl drives Eric to find the key to her wounded heart, but success would mean that Emily would have to give up all that she has—and depend on a man who’s life is anything but settled. Will Eric be able to win her heart despite her opposition to the only life he’s ever known? Or when the season ends will he move on again--alone?


Available in eBook or Print
Is Emily skating on thin ice? She sure feels like it when she meets Eric. And the ice gets thinner when Eric meets her son at a talk he gives to the elementary school. Emily's struggles with her emotions and the dichotomy of her desires culminate in a read that is a true pleasure. Ms. Laverentz takes the reader on a roller coaster of emotions as Emily and Eric work out their differences and learn how much in common they truly have.

The story, while being entertaining, also brings some important issues for women onto the table. Both Eric and Emily have causes they care about and the blending of these causes into an enjoyable read is seamlessly done. The reader is educated without being preached at.

I'm looking forward to more of Liana Laverentz's work. This is available in print as well as electronically for those of you who prefer to read while holding onto something other than your computer.

Or you could read it both ways. And you probably will. Read it electronically, and you'll want it in print for you 'keep shelf'.
