She's an investment banker.
He's an outlaw biker.
A little bit of heaven is about to meet a whole lot of hell.
  Morgan Powell was raised to be perfect, to set an example for her sisters to follow. Her life has been dedicated to making something of her career, so she wouldn't know what to do with a man even if you gave her an instruction manual. Brett 'Ice' Grady spends his days trying to keep up with his teenage daughter, his nights consumed in Regulators’ MC business. He has no time for anything more than a casual hookup. Two worlds collide when the dangers of his life crash into the calm of hers. Can she go beyond her own boundaries and chip her way through to the man known to be as cold as ice? Loosely attached to Chelsea Camaron's Hellions Series and Jessie Lane's Ex Ops Series.

4 stars 
I love when characters prove me wrong. I really do. And when I read something that makes me almost FEEL everything , including the rumbling vibrations of a bike or the supple smoothness of leather, well that's just one hot read. As usual, I'll spare you the synopsis within the review since I assume you read it already if you're reading this. 
There isn't enough sex scenes in this book to really call it erotic, but... and this is where I think this book is gold, it does create some powerful imagery while reading. A perfect example of this is Ice's character. He's a jerk , cold most of the time, short fused, fiercely overprotective and screams danger.  His character is stunning and dangerously delicious. Morgan, at first, I thought was kind of a bland character. Not because she worked hard, but because of how she carried herself. But little by little, she became this witty, sassy, kind, compassionate woman who wouldn't take Ice's attitude. 
The plot twisted and there were a couple of surprises thrown in, which made for a great read and introduced me to a couple of series from both authors I will definitely pick up. 


Ice’s Dream Cast
Ice is the ultimate alpha man/asshole. So Chelsea had a very clear vision of who would be his dream cast. Matt Schulze has the sort of rugged good looks that Chelsea and I both love. Beard, messy hair and bulging biceps complete the drool worthy package. Also, in case you didn’t know, Chelsea is a bit obsessed with the Fast & Furious movies. You might recognize Matt from the first two movies. ;) For Morgan, I chose Phoebe Tonkin. Her gorgeous brown hair, heart shaped face and green eyes make you think of an innocent woman just waiting to be dirtied up by a big, bad, no-nonsense man like Ice. Phoebe also tends to portray characters that have a bit of sass in them. I like the idea that maybe that’s Morgan when Ice gets her all riled up. You might recognize Phoebe the character Haley on one of my TV obsessions, The Originals, or The Vampire Diaries. We hope you enjoy our dream cast! If you have already read Ice we would love to hear who you would have pictured Ice or Morgan as in your own dream cast picks.

 Chelsea Camaron
Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming. Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice. Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works. When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in. She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
