He trusts his gut, she trusts her numbers, and neither trusts the other, as a billionaire's mission to bring hockey to Seattle clashes with his passion for the woman who holds his heart.
Ethan Parker, a billionaire determined to bring professional hockey to Seattle, will stop at nothing to realize his dream. After putting down a hefty deposit on another city's team, the sale is stalled as the parties involved evaluate their options. In the meantime, Ethan’s investors insist he go undercover during the playoffs to get the inside scoop.
Lauren Schneider, assistant director of player personnel, gets no respect from the team's testosterone-loaded staff. When Ethan bursts onto the scene, full of charm and genuinely interested in her opinions, she shares the team's weaknesses and discovers a weakness of her own—for Ethan. But when his true identity is revealed, and he starts cleaning house based on her input, his betrayal cuts deeply on both a professional and personal level. Bound by an employment contract, Lauren reluctantly moves to Seattle to work for the newly christened Seattle Sockeyes and her sexy, infuriating boss.
Lauren and Ethan must come to terms with their passions—for the team, for hockey, and for each other. Will their situation build a frozen wall between them, or will their love burn hot enough to melt the ice shielding their hearts?

A great read. Really enjoyed this book. Looking forward to others in this series. 👍👍👍👍😁
Team Pride takes all forms
I received a Complimentary Reviewer's copy of Skating on Thin Ice for an honest review.
The first in the Game On series Skating on Thin Ice sets the back story and new foundation of the Seattle Sockeyes hockey team.
Originally the Sockeyes were the Giants, a failing hockey team but with hidden potential and a less than quality support network.
Ethan Parker is a passionate hockey fan and has the means and connections to resurrect this hockey team from the quagmire in which it finds itself, but not without some challenges.
One of the redeeming aspects of the Giants team is Lauren Schneider and her forward thinking and innovative take on all things hockey.
Skating on Thin Ice follows the push and pull of the business enterprise of a team take over as well as the relationships forged during this time. In all things complex, pride is often a casualty.

Ethan Parker goes undercover to get a feel for a hockey team that he plans to take to Seattle from Florida. Lauren is asked to take Ethan around and babysit him. They have this attraction that is very strong and try hard not to do anything about it because both have been burned badly before. However things heat up and they give into their feelings and chemistry while Ethan keeps his identity and true reason for being there, a secret. All hell breaks loose when the truth comes out. Lauren feel betrayed that Ethan could not trust her. Do they get together? Does Ethan get his hockey team? I enjoyed the story that has a lot of hockey jargon, great chemistry between Lauren and Ethan and hockey players with heart.
