Praised by Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills as "the usual Grey crisp writing, lovable heroes that you kinda want to slap, and a heroine that doesn't back down," Resistance on Ice is another fun standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.
Hockey star Nolan Solvenson is nothing short of skilled perfection, both on and off the ice. Or so everyone thinks. His teammates are constantly hitting him up for advice, but really, when it comes to his own life, Nolan can't seem to make the right moves anymore.
Blame it all on Lainey Shelburne, a woman he wants but is determined to keep at arm’s length. That’s why, after a few sexy encounters, he unceremoniously blows her off.
When they’re reunited, facing off against the fiery cocktail waitress becomes the challenge of his life. Lainey is furious with him for dumping her and wants nothing more than to kick him in the junk. But Nolan—typical man—is only interested in getting Lainey back in his bed.
That plan is shot all to hell when they reach a shaky truce and Lainey drops the bomb that all she’s looking for now is a "just friends" relationship with Nolan.
Take that, Mr. Hot Right Winger!
Suddenly, the "know-it-all" athlete is skating on thin ice as he tries to hide his burgeoning feelings from the one woman who has the ability to thaw his heart. But is Lainey willing to try a relationship with him again? Can Nolan resist the urge to walk away?
Resistance on Ice is a fun standalone novel and the second installment in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Nolan Solvenson is known for having his life together. He is the one that friends turn to when they need advice on getting back on track. If everyone only knew how much of a front he puts up. That his world is quite the opposite. So he remains guarded. Until Lainey Shelburne. Nolan is determined to keep her away, until he can no longer do so. After a few times together, he completely blows her off. Most girls would cry in a corner and wonder what they did wrong. Not Lainey! She is fierce! And mad! So when he comes to the realization that he can’t deny what they had, she tells him she just wants to be friends. Because trusting him would only mean heartbreak. Again. But Nolan? That is a challenge he is up for and he has no intentions of backing down.
The chemistry between Nolan and Lainey was off the charts. The building of their relationship was a true testament to the author’s talent of character development with a witty and fun storyline. This is a friends to lover and second chance romance all rolled up into one. While S.R.Grey is known for her more heartfelt stories, but she was quickly cemented her place in the romantic comedy romance genre with this amazing new series! The execution was skillfully manifested in a story that I found hard to put down. I just about read it in one sitting! If you are a fan of this author or even just a fan of sports romantic comedy then you MUST read this book! And if you are a fan of neither, I guarantee this book will make you one.
This was seriously THE best romantic comedy of the year! The author is extremely talented in allowing her readers to get lost in her words with her authentically hilarious storyline and genuine characters. Resistance On Ice has the perfect balance of steam and passion with humor. She has this innate ability for her readers to truly connect with her characters through heart and of course laughter. Although a romantic comedy, they still have sparks of S.R. Grey’s natural ability to give us a heartfelt and thought provoking read. Nolan and Lainey have something deep and their story is one to not be missed. I am so looking forward to the continuation of this series with the next couple.
