Overview

Zara Pritchard is a has-been. Once an Olympic darling, she's been reduced to skating in a dinosaur costume and giving lessons at the local mall...which is why she's excited when she's offered a chance to sub on a TV show, Ice Dancing with the Stars. If she wins the show, this could be the break she needs.

There's just one problem - her partner.

Ty Randall is a MMA bad boy looking to fix his image problem. Sure, he's got the nickname of 'Ty the MMA Biter'. Sure, he might have bit a guy's nose off in the cage. But putting him on a reality TV show? A skating reality TV show? He's not interested. He'll do the minimum to fix his image and call it a day.

But when wash-out meets flame-out, sparks fly and tempers flare. And Ty and Zara start to realize that maybe this partnership might be just as steamy off the ice as on it...

I loved the concept of this book:reality show contestants,pro ice skaters matched with random B list celebs. Zara and Ty are an unlikely pair, but that makes their story even hotter and you'll find yourself reading nonstop. Ms Clare is a new author for me and I'm enjoying all her books...especially the Billionaire series...as fast as I can read them!

Another great "Games" novel! This is book 3 in the Games series, a reality TV based series, and I loved it! I've always enjoyed reality TV, so this series was a great find!! Book 3 focuses on Zara & Ty. Zara is a former Olympian while Ty is an MMA fighter. They are complete opposites, yet are dynamic together. They struggle and butt heads at first, but soon we watch as feelings and desires come to life. I loved this installment in the Games series! And am glad the way Ty & Zara finally got their HEA after a big misunderstanding and a little drama. I can't wait for book 4!

This was a great read, i enjoyed the interesting interactions between Zara and Ty. Zara wants to win to revive her skating career while Ty isn't interested and is only there to help with his image after a incident in his last fight. At first they clash but after some interesting developments i was hooked,learning more about these characters and intriging facts about them. I look forward to continuing to read more from this author

This was a cute, light read. He was hot and the scenes were sexy. A bit rushed and corny at the ending - I love an HEA, but it was a little forced.

God, I love this series!! What fun books. I get so tired of the books with characters who are so messed up because of a tragic past. That gets old, and depressing after a bit. This book has great dialogue, romance, an interesting storyline, and life in the present ( not stuck in the past) loved the ending too! I recommend this book. S.A.K.

Jessica Clare's reality TV-inspired romance series is back with Ice Games. I love watching ice skating and the idea of a reality show about ice skating is something I would watch in a heartbeat. Oh, wait, FOX did one of those a few years ago, right? Skating With Celebrities. It didn't last long and wasn't renewed for a second season. But my roommates and I still enjoyed watching it. For those who didn't watch it, imagine Dancing With the Stars with the added challenge of being on ice. It was a delightful trainwreck. Zara Pritchard was on top of the world as a teenager. She won Nationals at thirteen. At fourteen, she was competing in the Olympics in Salt Lake City. She was a prodigy. She was cocky. She fell during the competition and committed one of the biggest faux pas in ice skating - she walked off the ice mid-routine. When the crowd began to boo, she flipped them off. Her behavior horrified her coaches and family, embarrassed her team, and killed her career. Now she tutors children at the local mall's ice skating rink, takes the occasional odd job as a costumed mascot, or gives private lessons. It was a long, hard fall. Then fate intervenes with a second chance. The reality show Ice Dancing With the Stars is in need of a female skater to fill in for a pregnant series regular. Zara is humbled by her experiences over the last few years and is determined to make the best out of this opportunity. If anyone understands how easily one mistake can ruin a career, it's Ty Randall, the MMA Biter, er fighter. During a fight in Vegas, Ty bit his opponent. On the nose. Now, MMA fighters aren't really known for clean fights, but there's a big difference between fighting dirty and biting a chunk out of your opponent's nose. Ty was forced onto the show by his publicists in an effort to clean up his reputation. To say he was an unwilling participant would be a huge understatement. He had no intention of trying to truly compete and win the show. There was more to Ty than met the eye and I enjoyed seeing his sweet and gentle side come out as time wore on. Zara and Ty are partnered up for the show. It's hard to say who is less thrilled about this pairing. Zara was expecting this opportunity to give her the second chance in her career she so desperately wants. But she needs to have a partner who is serious about competing to do that. Ty thinks Zara is mouthy and uptight. After a strange mishap in which Zara ends up with a bloody nose, a petrified Ty agrees to get serious and actually *try* to win in exchange for Zara's silence. Not that he did anything bad to her, but it would have looked bad given his history. As practices continue, their partnership solidifies and they begin learning more about each other. They aren't so different. With understanding comes friendship and flirtation. Their chemistry was intense and it was only a matter of time before they were unable to keep their hands off each other. But, for the good of the competition, their partnership, and their careers, they agree to keep things friendly... for now. It's hard to say whether I liked Zara or Ty better. What I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed navigating the world of ice skating and competitive reality TV with them. Whether it was their back and forth and flirting or the outside drama with the other contestants and the judges, I ate it up. Their dialogue and chemistry was fun and sexy. They very nearly managed to edge out Abby and Dean from Wicked Games as my favorite couple in Jessica Clare's Games series. Another fantastic "guilty pleasure" book. I could get used to these. I can't wait for Bedroom Games, the fourth book in this series of standalone novels. Unfortunately, I have no choice. It won't be released until 2014. The good news is, that gives those of you who haven't yet read the books time to catch up. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

HAWT even on the Ice Rink Ty is trying to regain his fame, and fix his mess up of a career. He bite a guy when he was fighting and that almost through him out of the lime light. Zara is also trying to get back everything that she lost at an early age, she messed up big time, and now has a 2nd chance. The romance in this book is slow to build. Zara is high strung when it comes to her skating career. She doesn't want to jinx anything and refuses to get involved with the hunky MMA fighter Ty the biter, until the "game" is over. Bad luck and all. She's a virgin and falls fast for Ty. With her career starting at such a young age, she never had time for anything really fun. Ty is an experienced guy and doesn't like strings attached with his sex.Not to mention they both have a really rough start with each other, things change for them and they get really hawt!!! OH MY GOSH the sex scene was awesome!!! It was worth the wait. Even though this is a short book, and there isn't much romance or sex in it. It was surprisingly good. It makes me want more. I really wish there was an epilogue, but then again everything feel into place at the end so I guess there wasn't a need for one. I really enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down. I was to thank Jessica Clare aka Jill Myles for giving me this book and allowing me to give a review of it for her.

This was a good, quick read, I happened to be looking through Jessica clares lists of books for the hundreth time this week, making sure I'd read everything of hers-lo and behold, a new book released today! This book was good, but the main characters fell into the sex a little to quickly. There wasn't enough tension or conflict, unlike beauty in the billionaire which was considerably shorter and full of waiting and conflict. All in all, worth 3 bucks, just wish it wasn't such a fast read.
