This isn't your typical romance. It isn't your typical action adventure story. This isn't your typical Mystery. It isn't your typical anything. And that's one reason I liked the book! It melds several catagories together to give the reader a wonderful trip.
I started reading out of curiosity - new author, different setting... I was going to read just a few pages, then move on to my weekend. I'll be darned if I could put the book down! And when I tried, the characters kept calling out to me to find out more! I finished in just over a day.
I don't consider myself a hocky expert. I know they play on ice, that fighting seems to be allowed, and that's about it. You don't have to be an expert to follow the action. The Insider's look at National League Hockey gave the brain just enough new information to keep my attention, without sending me to research materials to figure out what was going on.
This is Jaxine's first published work. It is slightly rough around the edges in some places - what I would expect from a first time novelist. And I harken back to the most unexpected words to come out of my fingers... I couldn't put it down!

Reviewed by Joanne Benham for Reader Views (9/06)

Jamie MacMaster fell for A.J. Charbonneau the first time she met him. A.J. was strongly attracted to her but refused to acknowledge it as he set about single-mindedly to achieve his ambition - becoming starting goalie for the Seattle Storm hockey team. Although the rumors were flying through the hockey club about the real reason A.J. was traded, he remained tight-lipped.

When A.J.'s fiancé showed up, Jaime was heartbroken and accepted a date with Mason Griswald, the other contender for the position of starting goalie. This precipitated a contest between the two men, both on and off the ice, that soon escalated into violence, as each man fought fiercely for their heart's desire, with Jaime trapped in the middle.

`Black Ice' gives you a tiny back door peek into the world of the NHL as it tells a love story that overcomes violence and betrayal and teaches one man the true meaning of love.

This was a nice story, easy to read. It is not a story about hockey; it is a mystery/love story set in the hockey arena.

Received book free of charge.

This book is a wonderful example of what you can do when you put your mind to it. Who said you can't blend romance, mystery, and the glittering world of professional ice hockey into one novel? This book proves it can be done.
I read it cover to cover in one weekend because I could not put it down. I kept promising myself that at the end of the next chapter I would put the book down and fix my starving husband dinner...he finally gave up, and ate cereal.
I really liked the fact that right up to the end I could not figure out who the bad guy was and why he was doing what he was doing. I am a big mystery reader as opposed to romance, so I got what I like while getting a little romance in my life.
Can't wait for the next one to come out. My kudos to Ms. Daniels on her very successful first attempt.

I can't figure out what book the other reviewers read because I have to disagree with all of them. I found the storyline to be predictible, and the dialogue was simple and uninspired. I didn't think any of the characters in the story were truly developed which made it hard to really care about any of them. There were also some errors in the hockey aspect of the book, such as having an NHL team play three days in a row. I wanted to like this book since I love hockey but I found it hard to get through because it failed hold my interest.

This is not a "chick" book. This is a great book for a couple to read together.
