Review: Ice Breaker by Nichole Rose

Published Aug. 2021


This bossy hockey star is playing for keeps with his publicist’s heart.


As a hockey star, women expect me to be a player.

But dating was never on my agenda until team management made me participate in a Win a Date contest.

My date was a disaster…and now I need a new publicist.

Mine sold the humiliating photos to the press.

Enter Camila Gomes, the curvy Brazilian goddess I can’t resist.

She doesn’t like athletes and doesn’t date clients.

But I’ll find a way to prove I’m worth the hassle.

Because there’s no way I’m letting this woman get away.


I knew nothing good would come of agreeing to Kelsey Lane’s plea to represent Gray Larsen.

He’s hot, bossy, and an athlete…three things I’ve never handled well.

But when he smiles at me, I go up in flames.

Maybe I should have taken him up on his offer to fire me.

Because the more time I spend around him, the harder it is to tell him no.


This older hockey player knows exactly what he wants…the heart of his younger, curvy publicist! If you enjoy laugh-out-loud hockey romance, over-the-top declarations, and steamy-sweet romance, you’ll love Gray and Camila’s story! As always, Nichole Rose titles come complete with a sticky-sweet and guaranteed HEA.

May be spoilers:

Ice Breaker is the 2nd in the Playing for Keeps series. It has 9 chapters with an epilogue and is about Camila and Gray. 

Gray is a hockey player and a little nerdy. Still Alpha though and a sweetheart. He’s having a few publicity problems. Not a virgin, but has been celibate for many years. 

Camila is a publicist and she’s hired to help. She’s not a fan of athletes. Virgin. 

Definite instaconnection when they met. Love a story that makes me smile all the way through. 

Lots of steam, and sweetness. 

Just a story of them getting together. No real drama. 

Sweet read. Reads fast and easy. 

No cheating, no ow/om drama, no separations. 

Epilogue is 5 years out. They are happily married with 2 girls and pregnant with a boy. 

I gave it ★★★★☆. Have you read it? What did you think?
