I’ve loved this series from the beginning, but this book I think is my favorite. The author created a story that wasn’t just about their growth as friends to lovers. They both individually had growth and hurdles they had to overcome and they did it together. Chloe was there for Dylan when he needed his hand held to get past his past and Dylan was SO there for Chloe with hers. It was an uplifting story to read. It put a smile on my face even when my heart was hurting for them. Because they were perfection for each other.
I feel I should say one thing … this story can be read on its own BUT I don’t recommend it with this series. These guys share a team spirit that you feel and read from the beginning. They are in each other’s books as additions to the story so it would help you as a reader to understand them from the beginning. But that’s just my opinion. Anywhere you start with Boys of Winter you’re going to enjoy it. #TRUST

This story is one of hurt, abuse and finding the strength to carry on in your life and not letting you past do anything but help you become a better person.
I got to say that I don’t know why but every time I read one of S.R. Grey books at the end I can’t give it 5*. Every one off them starts on such a high note but somewhere in the middle it dials down a bit and then picks up speed at the end. It irritates me a little because I feel like this story in particular deserved 5*.
The story itself was such a huge emotional read for me – it hit a few painful memories I don’t like remembering – touching me with learning about Dylan’s past or how Chloe handled her ex-husband. The strength they both possess is amazing. Both of them didn’t let their abusive past to win out and they pushed through in order to come wining on the other side.
I absolutely enjoyed getting to know Dylan & Chloe. The best part of the book is how they became friends first, lovers second.
I’m excited for the next book

“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 bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.” – Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills
