Book Description

Kennedy Carter has the perfect life. It includes an engagement to an NHL celebrity all-star, a Vera Wang wedding dress, and more money than she could ever spend. But when Kennedy learns that her fiance Todd is cheating on her, she's ready to leave the glamour and glitz behind.

She escapes to Orlando, Florida with a plan to rebuild her life while staying hidden from a country obsessed with celebrity scandals. The real world however, is tougher than she expected. Suddenly Kennedy has to deal with cockroaches, creepy alarm salesmen, and waiting tables... along with David, a gorgeous new love interest.

But what happens when the past refuses to stay hidden? When the truth of her background catches up to her, Kennedy must finally decide who she is, what she wants and where she really belongs.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"In Iced Romance, Kennedy Carter runs from a tragic situation to start her life over. Whitney Boyd manages to make Kennedy humorous even in her pain. Readers will love Kennedy, her gorgeous clothes, and cheer for her relentless optimism, even in the face of another potentially troublesome romance." --L.A. DeVaul, author Roxanne in La La Land

"The writing is fun, witty and seamless with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. . . .Iced Romance is a great book for teens and grown-ups alike. Anyone who wants a fun, quick read that also has a deeper meaning." --Julie N. Ford, Award-winning author of chick lit and women's fiction

"Whitney Boyd has done it again! Her characters are quirky but quintessential examples of people we all know. The most difficult aspect of reading Iced Romance is finding the will-power to put it down until the very last page has been turned." --Deborrah Olson, Yin Yoga Instructor and Fitness Leader

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read November 19, 2012
Format:Paperback
As a past reader and even writer of the chick-lit genre, lately I've sort of been slowly moving on to other genres. I haven't been interested in reading chick-lit--don't want to write it. When Whitney asked me to read and review her novel I agreed without knowing what kind of books she writes. She emailed me the PDF and it came one evening while I was finishing up preparing supper. My daughter was still out for her run so I decided to download the galley on my iPad and maybe read the first page or two to see if I thought I was going to like the book. Did I like it? Okay, so I ended up reading the entire first chapter while standing in the kitchen. Then I couldn't wait to get back to the story again later in the evening.

Now, I'm a fairly busy person; a single mom during the week days, a novelist myself and all that goes along with that, early-morning seminary teacher, chauffer, keeper of the lawn and garden, etc, blah, blah, blah . . . So it usually takes me a week, give or take, to complete a novel. I read this one in less than three days.

The writing is fun, witty and seamless. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. I especially enjoyed the list of possible names Kennedy made to call her ex-fiancé, Todd, when/if she saw him again. Kennedy is a girl born to parents of means and then engaged to a wealthy hockey player, so it is fun to see how naive she is to the way the rest of us live. Wearing heels to work on her first day as a waitress--rookie mistake. And David, her love interest, he is sexy, strong and compassionate--I want one ☺

But this novel isn't all silliness and fun. The author shows Kennedy going through a great deal of growth as she struggles to separate herself from the shallow life she's always known.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whatever happened to strong heroines? February 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I give the author props for knowing how to write but I absolutely hated this story. The main character Kennedy was one of the most obnoxious literary heroines I have come across in my readings. So weak and severely lacking common sense (one of my biggest pet peeves). I am not usually known to leave a book unfinished but this one almost had me doing just that. It took me forever to read because I hated the main character so much. Her logic, reasonings and reactions were so juvenile it disgusted me. I thought I was reading about a 28 year old, not a 13 year old. (Prank calling your ex-fiancé and just breathing heavy into the phone...what is this middle school?!) What happened to strong independent heroines...are these a dying breed in the literary world? The only reason this book gets one star is because I know it takes skill to write and put together a story. Other than that I hated this book. Of the hundreds and hundreds of romance books I've read this one has secured its spot in my bottom 10.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light and Easy Read. February 19, 2013

Good read and a refreshing change from the other books in similar genres. It was well written but didn't have the sex and smut that you usually find in a romance.I enjoyed the book and will read more from this author.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's too painful to read any more.... February 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got as far as chapter 17, but it is too painful to continue. I have no idea why the author chose to portray Kennedy (the main character in the story) as being dumber than a box of rocks. Any dummy knows if you go to the Police where you moved to, to report that you aren't missing, that your new location will be listed in the ensuing News article! And, after starting a new relationship with a Policeman, you actually think you can LIE to him and he will be ok with that? The MAIN REASON Kennedy broke up with the Hockey Player and moved to another State was because he was dishonest with her. Also, Kennedy wants to disappear so the Hockey Player can't find her, but calls and leaves messages from a phone and mails stuff to him, all traceable! Like I said, the author, for some strange reason, decided to portray Kennedy as being a total idiot! Personally I prefer reading stories with women that are smart and intelligent, so unless you prefer them to be the opposite, I would recommend that you skip reading this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay read January 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot is interesting but the relationship between David and Kennedy was not developed as well as it could have been. I liked the novel well enough for a once read. Will probably not reread unless have nothing else available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, light read, great humour March 3, 2013
By Ace
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a fairly quick light read as I had been reading very heavy, sad books. It was exactly what I was looking for. I liked the characters (they felt like real people). It was also great to read about a city that I lived in. I love the authors humour. I think she is just going to get better at adding more depth in her character development. Overall, it was a fun quick read and I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times. I will most likely read her other book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable romance, somewhat of a weak heroine December 19, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If I could, this is one of those books that I would probably give 3.5 stars. I picked it up on Amazon, because the reviews were pretty good, and all seemed to agree that it was a fun, light romance, which sounded perfect for what I was wanting in the moment. I will have to agree, that is a light romance, and a fairly quick read. I enjoyed the premise of Kennedy, a (formerly) wealthy young woman who escapes to Florida to start over after her famous hockey player fiancé is exposed in an infidelity scandal. I felt like the growing pains Kennedy experiences as she strikes out on her own in a new place with a new job and a new apartment grabbed my attention and made me sympathetic to what she was going though. I don't know how realistic it is for her to get the second job she applies for (with no work experience), the first apartment she looks at (and moves in the same day), and finds all the furniture she needs at the first store she comes to, but I suppose these things COULD happen. I also really enjoyed David, Kennedy's new Florida love interest. He is a hunky cop who invites her out on a date after eating at the diner where she waitresses. He is sweet, caring, and considerate, and all I could think about when I was reading about him was, how come this guy is still single? Finally, I really enjoyed some of the supporting characters, including Jesica and Carlos, Kennedy's neighbors in the apartment complex. Some things I was not so crazy about were Kennedy's indecision about her loser ex-fiance. She left him, should she have stayed? She's moved on to David, she still has feelings for her ex. She's falling in love with David, should she marry her ex tomorrow (seriously)? Read more ›

Why would you leave a life with some one you love and try to disappear? And what is a normal life like? Perhaps there are tough lessons to learn before you can move on.
