Abigail Jansen is done with hockey . . . and hockey players. After leaving her two-timing NHL-star husband, Abby decides to start over in her hometown of Glenwood Falls, Colorado. There she doesn't have to deal with people gossiping behind her back or hear the word "hockey"---until her daughter tries out for the junior hockey team. Now Abby has to face her fears . . . and coach Jackson Westmore. He's tall, dark, handsome---and happens to hate her.
All through high school, talented hockey player Jackson Westmore had a crush on Abby, but he would never make a move on his best friend's girl. He gave her the cold shoulder out of self-preservation and worked out his frustrations on the ice. So when Abby returns, newly divorced and still sexy as hell, Jackson knows he's in trouble. Now even the best defensive skills might not keep him from losing his heart.

Snows perfect second hockey-inspired Colorado Ice contemporary (after Maybe This Kiss) is a tender romance about life handing two bruised, vulnerable people an unexpected second chance. Divorced from her high-school sweetheart, whos now a superstar NHL player, Abigail Jansen hopes that her hometown, Glenwood Falls, Colo., is the right place to restart her life. Then Dani, her nine-year-old daughter, makes the local junior hockey team, and the coach turns out to be her exs best friend, Jackson Westmore. Jacksons snarky attitude hides his true feelings toward Abby; he knows the only thing more off-limits than your best friends girl was your best friends ex-girl. As Abby and Jacksons lives become more intertwined in that small-town way, their sizzling sexual chemistry leads to frustrated emotions and difficult choices. When Danis father comes to town for a father-daughter dance, he shows his true colors, prompting Abby and Jackson to make some serious decisions. The emphasis on romance will make this book appealing even to readers who arent into sports. Quietly humorous, profoundly moving, and captivatingly seductive, with supportive secondary characters, this novel is sure to enthrall fans and newcomers to this series.
