This book is a game show of couples skating. One trained and talented ice skater and one person who has some skating experience but their career is in another area. Think dancing with the Stars on ice.
Zara was America's darling and odds favorite to gold medal at 14 years old at the winter Olympics. She fell during her second routine and left the ice without finishing her program. She was pretty much written off as a serious skater for the next 11 years of her life. The show contacts her to be a substitute for this season. She sees it as her second chance to make something of her skating career.
Ty is a MMA fighter. During a big fight in Las Vegas, he became so enraged he bit off part of his opponent's nose. Now he is banned from the sport. His manager tells him he has to do this skating show and find a way into the hearts of America to ever possibly get a second chance. He hates the whole idea.
The two get partnered on the show. They start out with very different ideas of how their skating training will go. Due to an accident when he was drunk, Ty agrees to give the skating his very best effort. They move from enemies, to partners to friends to more as they open up to each other.
Zara Pritchard was an Olympic ice-skater whose star has fallen very, very far. At the 2002 Olympic Games, she was a shoe-in for the gold, a cocky 14-year-old with an amazing career ahead of her. Then she fell during her performance, walked off the ice, and flipped off the audience when they booed her. Needless to say, she lost all her endorsements and her coach, and now she's a has-been who gives skating lessons to 4-6 year-olds at the local rink and skates around in a dinosaur costume for extra cash. When one of the skaters onIce Dancing with the Stars gets pregnant, the show invites Zara to fill in.
Ty Randall is a MMA fighter who recently had a bit of bad publicity due to the fact that he bit an opponent's nose in his last fight, earning himself the nickname "Ty the MMA Biter". His agent is working on image control and decided Ice Dancing with the Stars was a good place to start. Ty is not interested in doing the show and plans to `skate by' (<-heh, see what I did there?), doing as little as possible.
Zara is determined to win the competition and use this chance to revive her skating career, but Ty is not interested. Then, by way of an unfortunate accident, Ty reluctantly agrees to help Zara. The more time he spends with the feisty, talkative skater, the more he thinks maybe she's not so bad, and maybe, just maybe, they can win this thing.
I know I just did a review for book 2 in this series, Playing Games, but I feel like shouting from the rooftops what an awesome series this is - so cute, funny, and very sexy. I can't believe more people aren't raving about these books.
I thought Zara was a sympathetic heroine - she made a mistake at a young age and 10 years later is still paying for it. She's thrilled to be given this second chance and doesn't want to blow it. Her nervous chatter was cringe-worthy and I could totally relate. It took me a bit longer to warm up to Ty, but the more I read him the more I melted. I really liked them together - they didn't get off to a good start but as the story progresses their relationship moves along at a good, believable pace. Their personalities are different, yet similar, as they are both athletes with a competitive spirit: once Ty sees how things are stacked against them, suddenly he wants to win too.
There's quite a bit of humor in Ice Games - you can tell that Ty really, really doesn't want to wear sequins, and Zara is a *bit* superstitious. The bites at the beginning of each chapter were funny yet sweet. The Ice Dancing with the Stars setting was a fun way to throw these characters together, and I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes cattiness between all the characters - these skaters have been competing against each other for years and a TV show isn't going to change those relationship dynamics.
My only complaint is that it was too short - it was a fun read and I didn't want to stop!
Ice Games is perfect for fans of sports-themed romance and/or MMA-fighter heroes, reality tv junkies, and contemporary romance fans. I don't watch reality tv and I have loved all three books in this series.
This bk features an "ice dancing" theme. With an array of B list celebs and various one time skating champs. Zara at 25 yrs, a fill in for the pregant skater chosen for the show, is hoping to have a 2nd chance. Ty, while less than enthused with his starring appearance, is being coerced by his manager to help revive his career with a seriously needed image makeover.
The tiny little health conscious, determined, competitive, control freak and the big badass fighter are incredibly fun going at it. Ty is worried about losing his man-card (he hates this girly gig) and Zara is determined to win the completion. Neither are happy with each other, which just makes this story all the more fun. After a bit of an "oops" accident, Zara has Ty just where she wants him and guilt's him into helping her win. Oh yea...opposites attract and things start to heat up and before long they begin eyeing each other as more than just skate partners. Things heat up slowly as the story plays out and oh is it worth it. Ty is one SEXY guy and he and inexperienced Zara together are sweet and HOT!
Just so darn cute! If you're looking for a fun, easy, light read, this is it! Jessica Clare (aka Jill Myles) can't wait for bk 4, Bedroom Games.

As an ex-pro figure skater Zara is determined to win. As a surly mixed martial arts fighter, Ty is determined not to care. This means war, on a personal and professional level. Let the sequins fly!
This is the third in the sexy Games series, set in the crazy world of reality TV game shows, and is completely standalone. If you've read either of the other two, you'll know what to expect, but what's different this time is the added world of D-list celebrity, mixed in with a Dancing on Ice style show.
Zara is small, feisty and determined. She has a motor mouth - particularly when she's nervous - and knows what it's like to throw away everything you've ever wanted in one careless moment. Ty is on the brink of doing the exact same thing, but though he's twice her size Zara's soon kicks him into shape.
Ty is not a natural romantic lead, but as the story goes along he soon transforms into one. Loyalty is everything, and I loved how he changes from a surly drunk into just what Zara needs - even if she doesn't necessarily notice.
This is funny, sexy and pure escapism. Like the others in the series this is a quick, enjoyable read about opposites colliding and leaving chemistry, proximity and attraction to do the rest. Sure, the ending is pure cheese, but in the best possible way.
Another keeper. Now, where's the next one...?
it was just as good as the others
I did read in one night as I could not put the kindle down
