Flirting On Ice by Veronica Forand, Susan Scott Shelley

A satisfying category romance from Entangled's Lovestruck imprint...


Mr. Perfect has found his kind of trouble...


Professional hockey player Zac Elliott is in top form. He's having the best season of his career, the local fans can't get enough of him, and he's in the middle of the most successful contract negotiations of his career. When the sexy little spark between Zac and the team owner's daughter blazes to life, no matter how forbidden, he can't resist.


Philanthropist Heather Ryan can't keep her hands off of Zac. If her father finds out, it could end Zac's career and ruin her reputation. What they share is deeply passionate and intensely private...until the press exposes their illicit relationship.


Now the fans have viciously turned against Heather, Zac's game is faltering, and even his team has deserted him. The only way out of the penalty box is for Zac to play hockey like life-and love-depends on it...

A short novella with a huge story. Zac and Heather are made for each other, except she's the team owner's daughter and he's the captain of the team. They can't keep their hands off each other and find themselves further and further at odds of her father, the team, the press, and the fans who are convinced that Heather is the cause of Zac's downward spiral on the ice. When everything is falling apart, they're each willing to give up everything for love. Will they get their HEA?

Tandem authoring of books is a relatively new trend in literature today. As a writer, I have difficulty imagining sharing my story with a partner since I’ve always held the idea that a story is personal. Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley are breaking down those long held ideas with their first joint novella, FLIRTING ON ICE. The story stars Zac, a hockey star, and Heather, the owner’s daughter. It follows the “love at last” formula that is one of my favorites having lived such a romance myself. There are great secondary characters that lend just the right amount of support while not taking over the story completely. A few, like Zac’s friend Sequoia, are worthy of their own novellas. It’s a great behind the scenes look at professional hockey from the personal lives of the players and owners. The public life is a very difficult one when you are sports star and Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley paint it well. If you want a fun read to remind you that love does conquer all, FLIRTING ON ICE is a great choice!

I loved this book. Sweet and charming from the beginning, I loved that though Zac was team captain and all alpha male, he didn't need to be an ass or tortured to prove it. He cared about her, genuinely cared for Heather from the first second, and did everything in his power to juggle what he NEEDED for himself with what was best for his team. This was my first book by both these authors, and I have to say, I was charmed and blown away by it. I absolutely loved every second of this story.

A quick, fun, fast-paced novella with endearing characters. I loved the hockey theme. I just wish there had been more secret encounters before they were caught, but it does still work. Great chemistry. I would love to see these authors collaborate on a full length novel. ARC provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

“...as long as he was captain and as long as she was the owner’s daughter, the media would never leave them alone...” Flirting on Ice is a super short read and if drama, sport and romance is what you're after then this hits the spot. For a novella, it packs a punch. When pro hockey player Zac Elliott and his boss' daughter Heather realise their feelings for one another, they couldn't anticipate the reaction of the public, media his teammates or her father. To say it's less that supportive would be being generous. “We'll wait until the off-season if we have to. I’ve watched and wanted you for the last four years.” I loved it; Zac and Heather had a lovely chemistry, their journey held action, flirt and emotion and the secondary characters added valuable content. Although I could've happily read a full length novel, it didn't need to be any longer and Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley have kicked off the Atlantic City Hustlers series with a bang. Looking forward to more. “Nothing would affect my game, except losing you.” 4.5 stars Copy received courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest and unbiased opinion.

Fresh, enjoyable, and sexy is what you'll get from Ms. Forand and Ms. Shelley in their debut Lovestruck title. With a swoon-worthy, hockey player hero and a sweet, endearing heroine that wrangles his heart from the first meet-cute... you'll be hard pressed to put this novella down. If you are looking for a fun, flirty holiday read be sure to pick up a copy of Flirting on Ice.

A sure way to throw your hockey career off the rails is to fall for the owners daughter! That's exactly what happens to Zac Elliott when he falls hard and fast for Heather Ryan. He knows messing with her is strictly forbidden but his heart never got the memo. This was a fun, quick read that was a perfect combination of angst and romance. Definitely one I would recommend.

Flirting on Ice by Veronica Forand and Susan S. Shelley is an incredible start to the Atlantic City Hustlers Series. Professional hockey player Zac Elliott career is at a high as he is entering a contract negotiation. The last thing he should do is jeopardize it pursuing a relationship with the team owner's daughter, Heather Ryan. This 100-page novella is an exciting and fast paced read that I finished in one sitting. I really enjoyed Flirting on Ice. I like how the story starts out with the characters bumping into each other outside the work environment. Both Zac and Heather are likable characters. They undergo some interesting obstacles in this story. The plot is very realistic and convincing. The story had a nice Christmas ending. I’m looking forward to continuing this series.

Sweet Romantic Novella! This was a sweet book; it is a novella so I was happy to read this in one sitting because I did not want to put it down. Zac is a professional hockey player and Heather is the team owner’s daughter. They share a deep passion for each other, but they try to keep it a secret that is until they are caught. Can their relationship make it with all of the outside forces that are against them. This book will have you laughing one minute and sniffling the next. I am looking forward to the next book by these authors.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Zac and Heather meet up accidentally on the beach and the need to get to know each other becomes prominent in both of their minds. Heather's father owns the hockey team that Zac plays for and is the captain of. To say that their relationship causes some problems is an understatement. An outside force tries to rip them apart several times and crazy fans blame Heather for the horrible play of the team and Zac. It all comes to a boiling point and Zac steps up and puts everything on the line for Heather. It was a short, sweet read and was pretty well done. There were a few points that came a little too quickly for me to believe, but overall the book was good.

This is a good short book for a cold winter day. Great for an escape from all the stress of your day.

WAGs (i.e., Wives And Girlfriends) always get a raw deal.  As a big sports fan myself, I know that fans can be pretty brutal on a professional athlete and anyone in the athlete’s life who could be perceived as a hinderance to team’s performance. That’s why I loved this story from the beginning — it rang true. I’m always in awe of authors of novellas because readers expect an engaging story with fully developed characters in a very few number of pages.  I’m doubly impressed here because this story was written by two authors working in tandem and they delivered a believable story with lovable characters.   The main characters here were not one-dimensional.  Heather could have simply been the owner’s daughter and Zac could have been seen as just a hot-shot sports star.  But they were more than that.  They were not defined by obvious parts of their lives and what they did away from the public spotlight made me feel more engaged with them. For me, oddly, this book was a little reminder that sports fans don’t really “know” professional athletes and that as invincible as athletes appear, they feel hurt and sadness just like the rest of us mortals.  Overall, this was a fun, sweet, quick read.  Personally, I can’t wait to see what the authors have planned for sports-loving contemporary romance readers in the future.   Reviewer’s Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All errors and omissions are my own.

This book has to be one of the sweetest books I have read in a very long time.  I simply loved the connection between Heather and Zac as well as their characters.  From start to finish I enjoyed their characters more and more.  Zac just moved me.  His actions and words were heartwarming.  He and Heather have to be the most selfless and genuine people.  I cannot say enough to how heartful this story made me feel.  I only wish it did not end. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.

Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews by Kim Zac Elliott is the team captain of the Atlantic City Hustlers and is one of the most eligible bachelors in the city. Heather Ryan is the daughter of the team owner. There’s an unwritten rule that players don’t date Heather. After ignoring their feelings for a long time, the two start a secret relationship which turns out to be more than they bargained for when the media finds out. Too bad the heart knows what the heart wants, whether the mind agrees or not. Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley have teamed up to bring readers an enjoyable forbidden love story in Flirting on Ice. I was hooked from the beginning of the story. I became frustrated when other people had to put their two cents in. And I was shocked by the actions of others. While the story was good, I just would have liked it to be a little longer. For me, that’s a good sign. It means that I couldn’t get enough of Zac, Heather, and their love story. Flirting on Ice is the first book in a new series from Veronica and Susan and I can’t wait for the next book. Hopefully, Alec will be the next player to find love. Source: Publisher

The author had a story line she could have developed. The book is 86 pages long? I only paid 99 cents but would have gladly paid more for a longer story. I am sick of being ripped off.

Hockey Hero + Pretty philanthropist = Happy ending Zac Elliot is a star. He is the captain of the Atlantic City Hustlers, has a legion of loyal fans, and is about to sign a renewal contract for the next few years. He volunteers his time with the team, by helping Heather, the owner's daughter with her girls hockey league. They like and respect each other, but each ignores the attraction to each other. When a chance meeting leads to a date, a beautiful relationship is born. This was an enjoyable novella that was sweet, well paced and fun. I would recommend this to fans of sports romances like Jaci Burton's Play by Play novels. I was given an arc copy for an honest review.

Hockey player Zac Elliott is a truly nice guy. He is attracted to Heather Ryan and she feels the same. They are perfect for each other. There is just one problem, her father own the hockey team and Zac is their star player. The uproar is dangerous and destructive to their romance. Can love triumph? Zac is such a charming and compassionate hero. He's a wonderful lover and a true gentleman. Heather is a beautiful woman with a caring heart. She wants to help others succeed. Their romance tugged at my heart. I hated they way people reacted to their dating. The Atlantic City Hustlers provided a great backdrop. The team had some interesting characters that I would love to know more about. The action on the ice and the snappy dialogue captured my interest. I rejoiced when the person responsible for leaking the information was found and got his comeuppance. Flirting on Ice had it all. There was a great romance, true love and plenty of action. Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley did a wonderful job. I loved this well-written drama. It kept me entertained and left me wanting more.

**Smut Book Junkie Reviews*Looking for a new Hockey romance series? Flirting On Ice by Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley is the first book in the Atlantic City Hustlers. This novella gave the readers an introduction to some of the team players and the dynamics of the Atlantic City Hustlers. Heather Ryan is the princess of the Atlantic City Hustlers. Her father is the team owner. She is expected to be supportive of the team in all aspects. She is also expected to be involved in the team charities, youth programs, and community services. She embraces these expectations with great pride. There is one expectation that she can no longer live up to. Her father has forbidden her to date any of the players of the team. For four years she has secretly longed to get to know the team captain Zac Elliot better. He is a good man and takes a great deal of pride in all of the Atlantic City Hustlers activities on and off the ice. He is known as a bit of a player but when he is around Heather he seems very sincere. Zac Elliot is attracted to Heather Ryan. She is the one woman who is off limits. His contract is up for renewal with the Atlantic City Hustlers. Now is not the time to be pursuing the owner’s daughter. A chance meeting changes everything. Now he wants Heather more than he wants his contract renewed. The two will engage in a secret relationship that will get blown out of proportion when the press gets wind of their relationship. It will put Zac’s career on the line. It will put Heather’s pristine reputation in the gutter. Can their relationship survive? I would of liked to seen more of Zac and Heather’s one on one moments. A large portion of the book focused on the trials and tribulations that were causing conflict in their relationship. The scenes that focused only on Zac and Heather were steamy hot, romantic, and well written. Flirting On Ice was entertaining. It was a great start in a sports romance series. I am looking forward to the next book in Atlantic City Hustler series.

ARC kindly received from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.. 3.5 Lucky Number Seven stars Zac Elliott is at the top of his pro hockey game, has the supporters eating out of his hand, and is heading into tough negotiations regarding his continuing contract. Ultimately, his moves dictate the supporters moods. Heather Ryan has been admiring Zac from afar, but she knows he's out of her reach, given she is the daughter of the teams owner. A relationship between these two would conjure up major negativity and bad press for the team, and certainly put a spanner in the works for his continuing success this season. As expected, these two dance around each other, trying to keep a lid on their dalliance and emotions, but there are outside influences keen to expose them and cause major trouble. I enjoyed this short, but succinct story. It packed a lot of drama, romance and steam into its limited pages. A great start to this series.

Terrific start to the series. I don't usually read a lot of sports themed romances but they are fast becoming a genre that I am looking out for. Flirting on Ice is a short, fast paced novella which kept me entertained and engaged throughout. Zac and Heather had known each other for 4 years, and this novella easily picks up their story just before they declare their attraction to each other. Unfortunately their timing is not the best, but you can't plan love. As the drama unfolds following their romantic relationship becoming public, Zac and Heather have to navigate the sometimes distasteful side of public life. Both feel the pressure of family and team obligations, and the attention from the fans and media seems overwhelming. What I really liked about this story was how the couple navigated the drama maturely. There were no silly immature reactions and this enabled me to have more of a connection to them. Both characters shared a sizzling chemistry, a fun flirtatious romance, and heartfelt emotions. As for the secondary characters, I thought they each had their role to play and all added to the overall story. I could have easily read a full length novel with these characters but, at the same time, I was left satisfied with the length of this novella. A great start to the series

I love a good sports romance, and Flirting on Ice by authors Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley certainly does not disappoint. This nicely paced novella is centered around the sport of ice hockey, replete with unpredictable fans, an MVP, contract negotiations and the team owner's daughter. The story is predicable, however, the couple's nemesis is a snake and I enjoyed the slightly suspenseful journey to his discovery and subsequent downfall. Heather Ryan is a philanthropist and devotes all of her time to helping others in need. She is also the daughter of Patrick Ryan, the owner of the Atlantic City Hustlers, a professional hockey team. For the past few years, she has secretly crushed on the team's captain, Zac Elliot. Most recently, she and Zac have gotten together, which has resulted in a love affair that is strictly off limits. Naturally, the press finds out about their relationship and all hell breaks loose. Luckily, they are able to conquer the obstacles that are preventing them from being together. Another successful romance from Entangled Publishing. I liked this story, however, I wish it was a lot longer and had a little more heat. The main characters are intriguing and likeable. Until the final chapter, which is overwhelmingly joyous, the holiday theme is primarily in the background. Overall, this is an engaging novella and it will keep you entertained from start to finish.

ARC Courtesy of Entangled Publishing This is a really sweet little novella about Zac and Heather and is perfect for the holiday season. Zac is a pro hockey player who is captain of his team and is in the midst of his best season ever. He is also in the middle of negotiations to renew his contract for the team he loves like his family. Heather is a philanthropist who runs various programmes for the Atlantic City Hustlers Ice Hockey Team. Her dad owns the team and Heather loves her job helping kids. Zac has had a mad crush on Heather for the last 4 years, but had not pursued it due to her being the owners daughter and totally off limits. However fate has other plans for our couple and when they finally do get together the sparks fly for these two. Not everyone is happy they are together and when the media and his team mates find out, they will have to decide whether their attraction to each other is enough to continue their relationship. A really sweet read, which I highly recommend. Not to mention a great start to what I hope is going to be a series!!!
