Review for Complications on Ice by S.R. Grey - 3 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
Fun-loving professional hockey player Benjamin “Benny” Perry is all about scoring, both on and off the ice. With his good looks and easygoing personality, women flock to him, which is great. It keeps things the way this Las Vegas Wolves forward likes—uncomplicated.
Too bad that’s all about to change.
When Benny decides to get back at his coach by pursuing his daughter, Eliza, who’s just returned to town under mysterious circumstances, complications abound. What begins as a simple conquest becomes anything but when Benny starts to really fall for Eliza.
But something is up.
Though Eliza seems to be as into him as he is to her, Benny senses she’s hiding something.
Or maybe she’s hiding someone.
Benny would never guess Eliza is hiding a baby—her baby. But it doesn’t end there. The father of her child just happens to be a hockey player too. And he’s Benny’s biggest nemesis.
Now he’s joining the team. Talk about complicated!
Complications on Ice is the 3rd standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.
**EACH BOOK IN THE BOYS OF WINTER SERIES FEATURES A DIFFERENT SMOKING HOT HOCKEY PLAYER'S STORY**
MY REVIEW -
The writing is good and I liked the humor Grey puts into her writing. This one just didn't connect with me. I really disliked the characters. Mainly Eliza, she's immature and a liar. She lies all the time, and she really got on my nerves. She's really irresponsible, and everyone in her life just let's her get away with it and take very little responsibility for her actions. She got pregnant by a jerk hockey player, the guy doesn't want anyone to know he has a baby, so he pays Eliza to keep quite about him being the father. She doesn't tell anyone who the dad is. She can't take care of the baby by herself, so she moves back in with her parents, and decides to keep the baby a secret from everyone. That right there bothered me so much, then when there's hints to her having a baby, she chooses to lie about it over and over again. Eliza's character really ruined the whole story for me, and I couldn't enjoy any connection between Benny and her. I also didn't really care for Benny. He was okay, but he was a little too blah for me. The book is mostly entertaining, and I like Grey's writing style, so that's why I gave it 3 stars, but overall, this book didn't work for me. I really liked the first 2 books in this series, so I'll keep reading the next book(s) in this series, and I like Grey's writing style too. I listened to the audiobook version of this story, and the narrator did a good job, so I enjoyed the listening experience, so I'd recommend it.
