Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite In His Frozen Heart (Brewers Brothers Book 1) by Nancy Straight, Candy and Libby are two young women who have been friends for a very long time, sharing all of their secrets and dreams with each other. When Candy’s parents move away, Libby is thrilled to move in, but the girls struggle to meet their bills and keep their refrigerator full. Libby is an extremely good pool player and they use that skill to earn money by playing in bars and making bets that they know they will win. This works well for them until one fateful night when they bilk the wrong players. Candy and Libby suddenly find themselves as victims because the men they took four hundred dollars from want to kill them. The girls get followed, beat up, hurt and scared. When Candy is forced to search out Dave, an old friend from high school, thinking he was Mark (the possible bad guy of the story) and the look-alike brother that she didn’t know of, she is surprised to find Dave a very different person than she remembered. While Libby is in the hospital, Larry, an old flame, sits by her side day and night. While both girls face awful things, they also find out they have many friends who really care about them and men who love them. His Frozen Heart (Brewers Brothers Book 1) by Nancy Straight is a book that is impossible to put down. It starts slowly but quickly heats up to suspense, excitement and romance. His Frozen Heart has it all: suspense, mystery, adventure, true friendship and love. Nancy Straight has given us a new set of friends that we cheered for, worried about and want to meet again really soon. I cannot wait for the next book in the Brewer Brothers series to be released. His Frozen Heart will keep you reading long into the night and interfere with your chores because it is so hard to put down. His Frozen Heart is a perfect read for everyone and I believe it is headed for the top of the best seller list.
Ok so you guys know I don't really do contemp or romance, or contemp romance. BUT I make the exception when it's a favorite author of mine. Yep, Ms Nancy is definitely one of those favorites that I stalk! ALOT! So when she told me she was doing a contemp romance and asked if I wanted in, I say of course. LOL BUT I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. That should tell you a lot because I really don't read those hahaha. But anyways. Her writing is too damn good to pass up and she is a genius when she writes! So, Candy and Libby just graduated, and they are living together in Candy's parents' house. It's harder than they thought. Someone has to clean, and take care of things. Not parties every night and fun times. Food and money are a must to have and they don't. And then, this gets them into trouble. With some troubling things, Libby is in the hospital after being attacked, and Candy has to figure out who and why. She can't lose her best friend. Let me just say I wanted to cry for Candy. She really does have a lot on her plate and a really tough time. Oh Dave. He's all HAWT and sexy, and mysterious. And I think he's involved with the kray kray happening. But I won't say. Anyway, Dave was a friend from school and as they start to bond, Candy learns not eveything is as it seems. I really couldn't put this word down. Ms Nancy will suck you in, have you crying or screaming. It's suspenseful so you'll need to hold on to your seats. So, I can say it's not just romance, it's mystery and I'm very cool with that. I am so excited for you Ms N, because you are doing so well. Everything your pen touches comes out gold! CONGRATS! And as for you guys, get this one, ASAP, it's well worth it!! :) 5 PAWS!!
I received this book from Wordsmith Publicity as part of the blog tour in return for a fair and honest review. Nancy Straight has proven herself to be a star of the Paranormal genre with her Touched and Destiny series constantly receiving 5 star reviews. With His Frozen Heart she has successfully crossed over into the Contemporary genre with an amazing book. This story is simply amazing and will take you on a whirlwind tour as you try to keep up with Candy as she tries to survive. This may sound melodramatic but trust me, Candy goes on a rollercoaster journey after a night out goes badly wrong. Her best friend Libby gets attacked and is in hospital in a medically induced coma. She sees a man that she knew at school but he is calling himself Mark instead of Dave. Tony is a nice guy trying to help her. Teddy is a bear with claws and a lot of rage. Grey is just... well, he's Grey, slimy, violent and creepy. The characters in this are all superb and extremely well written whether you like them or not. Don't take everything at face value though, as I did, because you'll be in for surprises along the way such as how one character acts and then towards the end you find out why and it will throw everything about how you feel about that character on its head. I just have to say this though... Dave! That's it, just Dave. If you want an alpha male that has been seriously hurt in the past, has issues that he admits to, is sweet and caring whilst being completely hot then Dave is your guy. His story brought tears to my eyes as well as raising my temperature! You want to wrap him in cuddles and cotton wool at the same time as wanting other things too ;) In short, this book is astounding, amazing, heartfelt, mysterious and suspenseful. The story is fantastic and you will not want to put it down. There are other characters that I haven't mentioned that I really should have but I feel like I've been gushing enough. Highly recommended.
This book will make you melt! I absolutely loved this story! This story is different from Nancy’s other stories as there is no paranormal aspect to this one; however, Nancy’s superb writing continues to shine through and as an author, she has really come into her own. This title represents Nancy’s 8th book and she just keeps getting better and better. This tale centers on Candy. Her friend and roommate Libby is great at pool and wagers on games to help put food on the table. When a bet goes wrong one night, Candy finds her world turned upside down as suddenly her friend has been attacked and the attacker is now after her. As Candy tries to find Libby’s attacker before he finds her, she runs across an old friend, Dave. As she and Dave reconnect, Candy starts to realize that Dave’s past is not what she thought it was. Dave can either be the answer Candy needs in her life or the source of her nightmares. Will she uncover the facts she needs before it’s too late? (You will have to read to find out!) I flew through this book and could not put it down. His Frozen Heart is definitely a page-turner and a must read for fans of suspenseful romance. Also, if you’re a fan of Nancy Straight, this is a must have for your collection!
