The push and pull and insta love of Joel and Annika was interesting to see. She mentioned several times that he could see through her mask, and through her, but the connection read as much deeper and instant that it sounds. You could cut the tension with a knife, but when she finally gave in to Joel it was when the story really hooked me. These two were off the charts steamy.
The television show premise had potential for some serious drama to happen, but I love the way it was handled. There was of course some drama and some baggage, but it was handled with care and not just drama for drama's sake. I recommend this book for those that like their men a little rugged and don't take life seriously. and anyone that has a little ice protecting their hearts. Be prepared for Joel to thaw it all. And I must mention the sexy, tattooed, bearded man playing with a kitten will make your ovaries explode it they hadn't already.
"I then decided two things. One: My new mission in life was to make her laugh. Two: I’d crack her open if it was the last thing I did." (Pretty confident talk from a guy that just met the girl right?) But that's just his character and the chemistry between them is electric right from the start, and she fights it tooth and nail and so begins the push and pull. Granted his first impressions were pretty funny but Annika's? Hilarious!
“He is too. He’s crass and uncouth and … hulking. He’s medieval. Put a mace in his hand and point him to the Saxons.”
She is so fighting the attraction from the word go! And oh my goodness at the banter! Its always one of my favorite parts of a Staci Hart novel (she's the queen of snarky, sarcastic witty banter haha) and with this story it is top notch! Even the asides or conversations that take place in their own POV without the other person are so well written it just snaps.
Then there is the moment, when all pretentiousness falls away and even though it doesn't make sense and opposites attract and its pointless to fight it, (now there are still some ups and downs and misunderstandings for our favorite couple) there is this passage which showcases how lyrical the writing is in this book.
"Transparent, translucent , like the ice that I was. Freezing him out would never work , not when he could see the fire in my heart."
That moment for me was where the story morphed from something just fun but into something memorable.
Anni has a new reality show to produce. Hairy (aka Joel) is the owner of a tattoo shop and the location of said reality show. Though he really didn't want to agree to do it, he can't argue with the extra attention it will bring. So he begrudgingly agrees. Though meeting Anni did seem like a bonus. Until things got complicated. Then they both withheld the truth and I'm sure you can guess what happens next! Plus don't forget the excitement of the Russian Mafia, a little girl who lives Frozen, and a crazy ex!

- “A truce? I didn’t realize we were at war.” “Didn’t you? Seems to me like you’ve got your cannon loaded.”
- I’m reading.” “As in, a book?” I asked, surprised. “No, a census report.” She shook her head. “Yes, a book.”
- But in the end, a copy of an original is never as good. Like a fax, distorted by perception, made grainy by misinterpretation.
- I wanted to think this was just my lizard brain telling me to copulate with a male who was a genetic powerhouse.
- “It hurts, I know, but to hold the star in your hand is worth the pain.”
