I was given an copy of this book for an honest review. Melting ice is about Isaac 'Ice' Wolfe and Avery Maxwell. Isaac has just been traded to the Sockeyes and its his last stop in the NHL. He has major anger issues and is in no way a team player. Avery is a horse trainer who, for once, is following her dreams and not the dreams her family has for her. She lives and works on a horse farm, which happens to be the right next to the property that Isaac rents when he joins the Sockeyes. Isaac and Avery meet and have an instant attraction, and they couldn't be more different. I liked this installment of the Sockeyes series. I didn't want to like Isaac and I ended up really loving him. He and Avery were perfect together and I loved learning their stories. This is a must read for anyone reading the Sockeyes series and any one who wants a nice romance story.

Avery started to stand up for herself and live her own life in the last book. In Melting Ice we see her story unfold. Throw in the bad boy Isaac who is on his last chance at playing in the NHL, and we have a great story. Isaac demonstrates through determination we can rise above tragedy and the mistakes that paint our past. The connection and suppose Isaac and Avery give each other throughout their story is inspirational. I also enjoyed seeing perks of Riley's progress. A great addition to a great series. Looking forward to continuing to watch the sockeyes grow!

***HOT ENOUGH TO MELT THE RINK*** Isaac is a hockey player on his last chance at an NHL career. Avery is a horse trainer trying to make her own way doing what she loves. Between families, teammates, emotional baggage how can these two come together.... Let me just start by saying WOW! I absolutely loved this book! I have never read anything by this author and now I'm wondering how I missed out. This was a story that was so easy to immerse into. The characters are absolutely believable and easy to connect with. The plot flows and carries you along to perfection. You find yourself growling, laughing, and tearing up all in one great book. The connection between Isaac and Avery is hot enough to meet a hockey rink! This was a fantastic read and one of the best HEA I have read in a very long time. I can't wait to pick up the rest of this series. Received a copy for an honest review

Melting Ice (Game On in Seattle #5) by Jami Davenport Bad-boy hockey player Isaac "Ice" Wolfe has one last shot to stay in the NHL. He doesn’t let anyone into his life until he meets horse trainer, Avery Maxwell. Jami Davenport created another fabulous book in the Game On in Seattle series. I liked Isaac's character. He has had a rough life, not letting anyone become close to him. His reputation proceeds him. Once he meets Avery, he finds himself wanting to change and become a better person. I like the similarities between him, and the broken horses that Avery is trying to reorient. I couldn’t believe some of the things that Isaac suffered. My heart went out to him. Avery is great. I like that she followed her dream to work with horses. She is the perfect person to befriend Isaac and make him realize his worth. She has also gone through a lot and can sympathize with Isaac. They understand each other. I appreciated how things that happened in previous books within the series came to play in this book: for example, Isaac’s roommate, Blake, and the charity Isaac and Avery become involved in. I love that the Sockeye are unconventional and give Isaac a shot. They treat him different than he was handled in the past, and they give him a clean slate. Melting Ice has a believable and entertaining plot. It is heartwarming and kept me enthralled. I could not put this book down. I look forward to finding out what happens with Isaac’s brother, Tanner, and Avery’s twin sister, Emma, in Blindsided (Game On in Seattle #6). Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

So much ice needs melting in this book--the ice around Isaac "Ice" Wolfe's heart, not to mention around Avery Maxwell's nearly non-existent social life. There's a cantankerous dog who needs to thaw out towards his reluctant owner, and an abused horse who needs to learn to trust again. There's a hockey team that's trying to make its mark, and a new teammate who needs to prove himself despite a somewhat chilly reception in the locker room... Lots of ice to melt. Fortunately, the hero and heroine are there to provide plenty of heat. ;) Melting Ice was a feel-good book all around--I especially loved the ending; so sweet! It was great watching the bad boy of the NHL learn how to be a team player and start to care about something other than his own individual stats. And hey, who doesn't love a reformed bad boy? I enjoyed watching him work so hard at his first ever "normal" relationship. Plus, there were horses. And cats. And a dog. And hockey. (Though to be honest, I'd liked to have seen a bit more hockey--but hey, that's me. Slightly biased where that sport's involved. :) ) Melting Ice is the fifth book in the Game On in Seattle series, and it worked okay as a standalone. There are a lot of characters here that appear in other series books, and though there wasn't anything crucial that I needed to know from previous books to enjoy this one, at times I did feel a bit behind the times not being 100% familiar with all of their shared history. It's definitely piqued my interest for the other books in the series, though... Rating: 3 stars / C+ I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

I couldn't put this book down once I started! Isaac may seem like he's the biggest jerk, but deep under all the scars on his heart, he's a sweetheart. After a quick and dirty liaison with Avery, they decide it is best for his career to just be friends. Little by little, Avery and the Sockeyes chip away at the walls around his heart until he starts to care about more than just himself. There is plenty of hockey in this sweet love story with a very happy ending. I can't wait for the next book in the series! I received an ARC for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

&quot;Melting Ice&quot; is written by Jami Davenport, and it is the 5th book in her <i>Game On in Seattle</i> series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. It features Isaac Wolfe and Avery Maxwell. Isaac has gotten the reputation of being a bad boy with a selfish attitude. He's not a team player, and that's why he's been traded several times during his NHL career. He realizes his most recent trade to the Seattle Sockeyes could be his last stop, so he's trying to change and be an NHL player that can gain his team's respect. Isaac wants to focus on his career. What he didn't realize was that when he moved into his new home, he would be instantly attracted to his neighbor and horse trainer, Avery Maxwell. He's thankful that his dog ran off to Avery's because he finds excuses to stop by and visit her. Avery is doing what she loves. She might not have the approval of her older sister, but it's her dream to train and take care of horses. She's intrigued by Isaac, and one night, they give in to their passion for one another. What happens when they're both warned to stay away from one another? Will Isaac continue to be a team player and stay away from trouble? Will Avery be able to continue her dream and keep the horses she loves? I absolutely loved &quot;Melting Ice,&quot; and I truly believe Jami keeps getting better with each story in this series! It's just one of those books where you don't want to put it down -- you just want to keep reading! I loved the main storyline, and I also loved the subplots. Really looking forward to what she has in store next!

Isaac Wolfe has come by his nickname honestly. The newest member of the Seattle Sockeye's hockey team is known as &quot;Ice&quot; and judging by the bad attitude he exudes and the fact he wants nothing to do with being a teammate or a team player, the name fits. Having been traded to Seattle after stints in several NHL franchises, he knows that if he is out of line this time, he may very well find himself on the outside of the NHL looking in. Avery Maxwell is trying to live her life the way she wants to live it. After always trying to please her sisters, especially her sister Izzy, she has taken her life and her future into her own hands by leaving the family party crashing business to work with her first love, horses. She is determined to make a living doing what she loves most and she's dead set on proving it. When Isaac meets Avery after his dog pays a visit to her horses, he realizes that this woman is very different from those he has been around in the past. Even though he's attracted to Avery, and she to him, he is not in a place where he wants any kind of relationship. He gave up on those many years ago when a tragedy turned everyone closest to him against him. Now he lives only to play hockey. What he comes to realize over time is he enjoys spending time with the horsewoman next door. Will these two unlikely people end up being exactly what the other one needs? Will they be able to put their careers second to the person that could mean everything to them? Jami Davenport has done a phenomenal job with this book and the characters. I loved how complex both Isaac and Avery were and I found myself rooting for them from the get go. It was wonderful to see the evolution of Isaac throughout the course of the book and Jami deserves all of the credit for painting that picture for us. I would highly recommend this book without a doubt!
