Book two in the Hot Ice series.

Okay, I'll admit it, I have a crazy, lust-infused crush. Brick, the sexy right-winger of the Orlando Vipers, is the star of all my erotic fantasies. Just a glimpse of him has me panting. So when the chance to actually work with this hot hockey player comes along, of course I say yes!

Being a world-class athlete myself, I have a strategic plan to have him all tied up with lust and desperate for me too. The thing is, plans never go smoothly. Especially when my heart pedals right into the vulnerable game of love again-completely unprotected.

Luckily this sinfully delicious superstar is just as hooked on me-phone sex, bondage, anal sex and rude piercings abound. Despite my tactical errors, Brick catches me when I fall, holds me when I cry and pleases me when I need it most. He's hard on the outside, soft on the inside and plays one hell of determined game when it comes to finding the ultimate satisfaction.

another fab story from Lily! 2nd book featuring the Orlando Vipers. I love that the story was different to book 1 and look forward to seeing what is in store for book 3!

“I received this book as a review copy in return for an honest review” Cross-Checked is the second book in the Hot Ice Series by Lily Harlem. Another great one by Lily. When you first meet “Brick” in Hired he comes off all wrong. I am so glad Lily straightens us out with the lovable Brick. He just puts it all out there and you just want to hug the big man well maybe more than just hug. ;) Carly finally meets the man she has been wanting for some time now all thanks to a photo shoot. Do you believe in love at first sight? Well check out Cross-Checked to see how it happens! Sorry I didn’t give you much but I don’t want to spoil it, but it is so worth the time and money. I can’t wait to read book three Slap Shot...

I did like this story. Lily Harlem knows how to write she gives her character a good voice. They don't sound cheesy and predictable. Overall a very sexy read.

This is the second book in the hot ice series. Brick was hard to handle and it made for a great read to see Carly tame him! Hot!!!

Reviewed By~Sarah L. Review Copy Provided By~Publisher After reading and loving book 3 of the Hot Ice series, I made it a point to try to get my hands on the first two books in the series. As I can attest, these books do not need to be read in order and do well as stand alones. I did enjoy meeting and getting to know Ramrod (the hero in book 3) before he met his heroine. As with every Lily Harlem book I have read so far, it is told in the heroine's first person point of view. We know exactly what Carly is thinking and how she is feeling. I was embarrassed right along with Carly during the TV studio incident. I do understand that Carly is worried about being a one-night stand to Brick but I'm not sure I agree with some of the things that she did. This led to some rough moments and misunderstandings. One thing I would have liked to have seen developed a bit more was why Carly has the need to drive herself so hard to succeed. It was briefly alluded to while they were at Brick's cabin in South Carolina but it was not developed or revealed. Overall, this was a great story and it definitely has a place on my favorites shelf

Carly's every fantasy is about to come true when she finally comes face to face with her bad-boy, hockey-playing obsession. In true Carly style, she takes control of the situation when it becomes clear he is also interested. Her mind is sent on a determined slow seduction of the mind versus becoming another rink-bunny notch on his bedpost. Although a one-night stand with Brick would be nothing short of electrifying, Carly's looking for more, but Brick doesn't exactly have a reputation of being tamed. Carly's controlling and untapped dominate nature is exposed and soon her weaknesses are too. Brick played a hardcore game both on and off the ice, that is until he met Carly. Their athletic talents brought them together for charity work, but upon seeing Carly for the first time, Brick is immediately drawn to her. She charms him with her unpredictable mind and her athletically appealing body makes it hard to think of anything else. She's not his usual type and maybe just maybe that's exactly what he needs. After reading the first book in the Hot Ice series, I was very unimpressed with Brick's character. His short role in Phoenix and Brooke's story, left me with the feeling that this wouldn't be the last that we see of him and I was anticipating the challenge that his character would no doubt bring in his own story. Therefore, I was completely surprised to see that much of the challenge and frustration didn't so much come from Brick, but from Carly herself. Of course, there are good reasons for her actions and with the story told from Carly's point-of-view, it allows the reader to experience all the surprising layers that make-up Brick. The stories I've read by Ms. Harlem have always been entertainingly sizzling reads and Cross-Checked is no exception. The sexual tension is thick and the pacing perfectly matched for connections to form with the characters. Ms. Harlem provided a surprising epilogue, which only leaves me wanting more of the Orlando Vipers and what will no doubt be another scorching read with my favorite fictional hockey team.
