    Just when I think that Jacob Chance can't possibly create a hero better than those who came before him, he goes and creates this PERFECTION! And that’s saying something, because some of his previous heroes own pieces of my heart. However, I love Love LOVE Oliver and Ava. This was an absolute joy to read.

I love Jacob’s words and am always excited to see a new book of his hit my Kindle! Iced is a kick-butt standalone and not only did this book have all my favorite elements it also had the perfect charismatic Hero and a truly loveable Heroine. This is a book that you will get so completely lost in that you won’t even notice the time that has passed while reading it. I can’t even with how much I adored this book! Brilliant. Just brilliant. I adored Ava and Oliver. ADORED. These two were perfect. From the way the author played them out individually and as a couple. Their chemistry was off the charts and their personalities bounced off of each other in such a flawless way. So many sweet little moments between these two. Jacob puts together characters you can’t help but fall in love with. Oliver was one of those. Just an all around good guy! He was endearingly sweet and had a heart of gold, and he just seems to shine through as an incredible man. He’s swoon worthy, and one I was head over heels for! I loved Ava. Absolutely loved her. I adored her character to the point where I kind of have a bit of a girl crush on her! She’s sweet, feisty and full of sass. Her lack of filter is hilarious! She was pure passion and fire. Its a beautiful thing. She’s probably my favorite female JC character to date. This story and their love are All. The Things! Ava and Oliver are a match made in romance heaven. This is hands down my favorite Jacob Chance book. I love so many of his, but this one...it really got me, evoking so many emotions. And so many aspects of this story just resonated with me on a deeper level. I did not want to put it down or for it to end! This was the perfect sports/college/new adult romance! It had everything I wanted and more. It was a feel good, emotional as heck, and purely wonderful romance.

    Once again Jacob Chance scored a winning goal with the second installment in his Boston Terriers Hockey Series, ICED. Every time I go to read a Jacob Chance story, It’s exciting and thrilling because you never know what he will bring to the table for his characters. It is why he is one of the best authors, so diverse and in the best way! Oliver and Ava’s story is a bit different than what we are use to seeing in his characters but this story is nothing short of amazing and special.

Oliver and Ava’s story is a bit different than what we are use to seeing in his characters but this story is nothing short of amazing and special. The H and h are a little broken in ways, but they are able to form a relationship/friendship because maybe they sense a kindred spirit in each other. When Ava first meets Oliver she already has her opinion made of him and just doesn’t like him. When Oliver meets Ava he is very much intrigued but knows he has to keep his distance and nothing can happen. When a situation arises and Ava needs help who volunteers? Yep, everyone’s favorite hockey player, Oliver. Ava soon learns you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, meaning Oliver. Oliver comes to realize that fighting his feelings is a lot harder than taking a fight on the ice. This is an amazing story with characters you will just love! I definitely recommend you grab this hockey bad boy up on Nov. 1st!

    This was my first book by Jacob Chance and I was hooked right from the start. Super fast and flirty read with some sexy moments and humor thrown in. Can you find love when you least expect it? Oliver is a star player for the Boston Terriers. He's also just getting over a failed relationship that left him devastated. He has chosen to not get involved with anyone his last year of school.

Super fast and flirty read with some sexy moments and humor thrown in. Can you find love when you least expect it? Oliver is a star player for the Boston Terriers.  He's also just getting over a failed relationship that left him devastated.  He has chosen to not get involved with anyone his last year of school.  His goal is to focus on school and hockey.  But when he meets Ava he's immediately attracted to her.  She is nothing like his last girlfriend.  Ava is everything he's ever wanted, but never knew.   Ava is getting over a long lasting relationship that has left her betrayed by men.  She isn't interested in finding anyone new.  She is enjoying living her life the way she wanted, not they way her ex wanted.  She loves to dance and that is what her dream is.  Ava just started working at Score, an upscale bar where she is able to live out her dream.  She spots Oliver, the man of her fantasies since freshman year, but she knows he isn't for her.  What starts out as attraction and dislike for Ava soon becomes more.  She sees that Oliver isn't who she thought he might be.  He's sweet, kind, good looking and smart.   When Oliver overs hears that she's in need of a pretend boyfriend he offers his services.  Only neither are expecting what happens to become more.  Maybe fake might turn into love?? I liked both characters a lot, more Oliver than Ava.  I thought she was a bit rude at the start for reasons that weren't his fault.  I enjoyed seeing them stumble around a bit and that they just kind of blurted what was on their minds.  They didn't just sugar coat their feelings.  Oliver was very protective and loyal to Ava.  Ava just let things flow out of her mouth at times which was funny.  These two had great chemistry and I felt their heat.  Overall, I enjoyed the book.  I could have had a bit more moments of their relationship than what we got.  But it was still a good read.  This was my first read by Jacob Chance and I am a sucker for sport romances, so I will be checking out more.  I am intrigued by the secondary characters from previous books in another series that popped up.  I want to know their stories. ARC received for honest review

    One of the aspects I enjoy about the Boston Terriers series' (both football and hockey) is getting more insight on the secondary characters; those who have already had their respective books, and this that are hopefully coming soon. This was how I met Oliver; he was introduced in a previous book. From the moment I met him, I wanted his story. He seemed like a genuine, loyal character and I needed to learn more about this interesting man.

This was how I met Oliver; he was introduced in a previous book. From the moment I met him, I wanted his story. He seemed like a genuine, loyal character and I needed to learn more about this interesting man. I won't go into any specific details but I will tell you that Oliver is recovering from a breakup. One he didn't see coming, so of course he was blindsided. I was hurting for him, but I knew he was better off. Otherwise, he wouldn't have given a second thought to Ava. Ava has also gone through a breakup. And while I thought Oliver's ex was a rotten piece of you-know-what, Ava's ex was a jerk in the first degree. So, while Ava and Oliver navigate a platonic relationship, their true feelings won't stay hidden for too long. This book is definitely a slow burn. I appreciated the slower relationship development between Ava and Oliver that much more because of the pace of their growing relationship. Their connection was believable. I definitely recommend this book. And while Iced can be read as a standalone, I promise you'll enjoy reading it even more if you read the other Boston Terriers books. They are all standalone sports romance with a side of comedy and filled with lovable characters. I can't wait for the next book n this series! This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it!

    Well that was hot!! I hate calling a story sweet because I know that turns some people off but it really was sweet and then hot enough to melt the ice in the Terriers hockey arena. Ava & Oliver were friends first and sometimes that makes for the best relationships. Well done Jacob!

    Slap shot of a winner! I absolutely loved Ava and Oliver’s story. First I have to say YUM to that drool worthy book cover ! I couldn’t put my kindle down until I finished it. Jacob’s writing gets better with every book I read. Oliver is a hockey star and it was nice that he wasn’t an arrogant jock. Ava may be tiny featured but didn’t back down from giving her opinions. She dances at the club where Oliver is a bartender. Sparks fly when he sees her dance. They are my favorite couple. It was sweet Slap shot of a winner! I absolutely loved Ava and Oliver’s story.

This is Oliver and Ava’s story and I really enjoyed this book. From the first to the last chapter Jacob Chance wove such an engaging story that I couldn’t help but be drawn in. What happens when a “fake”relationship suddenly morphs in to so much more? That is the position that Oliver and Ava find themselves in when he offers to be her pretend boyfriend for a family function. I fell hard and fast for Oliver, he was such a great guy, totally swoon worthy, protective and caring. Ava was a little harder to warm up to but I understood her more as the story progressed. I really liked Oliver and Ava as a couple, they blended well and it was great to see their relationship progress throughout the story. Their chemistry was off the charts and the fact that Ava, says what she thinks had me laughing quite a bit of the time. A great addition to the Boston Terrier’s Hockey series and I am looking forward to the next book.

Iced is Oliver’s story and has fast become one of my fav Jacob reads, he is the perfect mix of fun & swoon. I love Ava, what I love more is Ava & Oliver together. I was invested in these two beautiful souls and the sexual and emotional chemistry they shared was palpable as I was reading. Iced is a delicious slow burn that will leave you swooning long after you’ve finished reading. Highly recommended read, you all need to “Get Iced” today.

    I could not turn the pages fast enough! Warning, your wide smile may break your face, because ICED is more than a sweet delight of a sports romance. ICED is HOT! OMG Two wounded hearts? Reluctant but charming hockey hunk meets smart “I don’t think I’m sexy” sexy dancer? Fake relationship? A fun cast of characters that feel like family? Throw in Jacob Chance’s signature dirty talk and sizzling chemistry? It’s all there. You should read ICED immediately. I love the reverse trope here: Oliver is I could not turn the pages fast enough!

I love the reverse trope here: Oliver is Cinderella, and I loved watching him get his happily ever after. He’s a great guy and gorgeous and perfect. He’s a student bartender hockey player who scores a lot, but he’s been through hell. He has a gift for knowing exactly what Ava needs when she needs it, but he’s denying himself. Of course he volunteers to be her plus one when it looks like her emotional backstory invades her life. Watching him figure out what’s happening is soooo gewd! He’s such a sharp guy, and so honorable, and I love and hate and love how he hesitates. The push and pull is such delightful torture. ICED is a keeper, and so is Oliver, but Ava always knew that. Sigh, I love this couple and ICED belongs on your sports romance shelf.

Oliver is so down to earth and I adore this man, the fact that he is a great Hockey player but doesn’t have his life wrapped around it makes him even more swoon worthy.

They had a lot in common, including that they were both cheated on in their previous relationships. Neither one of them is in a hurry to date again. I like that they form a friendship and become protective of each other. They act as buffers when around the others ex. They have great chemistry and are admirable people. Jacob Chance does an impressive job with ICED. It is skillfully written and mesmerizing throughout the entire story. The hockey scenes are easy to visualize. The characters are relatable. I recommend this story to people who enjoy sports romances and/or fake boyfriend romances. I’m looking forward to readind book three. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    SHARING MY LOVE FOR BOOKS

    Jacob Chance has just delivered my favourite sports romance of 2019. Iced is everything I love in a book. It's fun, flirty, charming, funny and down right delicious. Oliver is the definition of the perfect book boyfriend and Ava is just as, if not more so, amazing. Hours after finishing this book and I'm still swooning like a love sick fool. I highly recommend this book.

    When I saw the opportunity to be an ARC reader for this book, I literally jumped at the chance. After reading Checked, I knew I had to continue the series. I really wish it was a complete series because the wait is literally killing me between books. But all good books are worth the wait, and Oliver and Ava’s story was definitely worth the wait.

I really wish it was a complete series because the wait is literally killing me between books. But all good books are worth the wait, and Oliver and Ava’s story was definitely worth the wait. Iced is Book Two of the Boston Terriers Hockey series and I absolutely loved it. This one focuses on Oliver and Ava. Ava has admired Oliver from afar since she first saw him as a freshman, but he is too involved with his girlfriend at the time to even notice her. Once she realizes just how bad his girlfriend is, she judges that Oliver can’t be that great of a guy to put up with that. Three years pass before they meet again and Oliver’s first view of Ava is when she is dancing. His ex cheated on him and he has sworn off women. But he can’t help but feel the attraction when he sees Ava. They both end up working at the same location, Ava as a dancer and Oliver as a bartender. When they finally speak, Ava’s prejudgement comes out and he can’t help but wonder why. Ava has a past of her own and has sworn off men herself. When Oliver overhears Ava asking another guy to help her out, he can’t help but insert himself into the situation and help her out himself, sparking a fake relationship to help her get through her own family reunion where her ex and sister have gotten together. This family reunion was everything! I loved the entire thing, especially because the more time they spend together, the more the sexual tension builds. Neither of them are ready to really push past the friends part so when they finally do admit their feelings, its beautiful. I literally teared up at their admittance. Especially because a lot of it had to do with Oliver’s own ex trying to come back into the picture. Their sexual tension is only surmounted by the fact that Oliver truly is a good guy and is perfect for Ava. Much like the first book in the series, Iced is so much more than a sports romance. It has character and depth, allowing you to get a further look into the world that Jacob has built for these characters. He brings back characters from the other Boston Terriers series, building a world around the hockey team. The amount of detail allows you to fully immerse yourself in the book, setting each scene perfectly like a movie that is playing in your head. I continue to fall in love with these books and this series! I loved the football ones and the hockey ones are definitely following suit with just how much I enjoyed them. I can’t wait to officially own them all in my Kindle library! Definite must read and even though this is a standalone, I highly suggest starting with Checked as its the first book in the series.

    Iced is my very first read by Author Jacob Chance, and I think it was a really great beginning, because after reading, I immediately went and borrowed multiple other titles by this author!

I really enjoyed Iced. I liked both these characters and their devotion to and the passion they have for their sports. Oliver being a hockey player, and Ava being a dancer, they were able to relate on a different level than most because of their understanding of what it is like to be so passionate about something such as a sport. I also really love that they came together in the face of some awful betrayal's, and while they were still a bit jaded from betrayal, and wanted to keep things as just friends....it also shows that sometimes you need to just take another chance, even if it is something that scares you....especially when it is love shining through the darkness you are stuck in. Ava has had a crush on Oliver from afar since very early in her college career, but never thought she would have the chance to do anything about it, because he was already in a long term relationship with a woman that he clearly was very in love with. Well, Ava begins a job at the same bar that Oliver works out, and although she now knows that he and his girlfriend are no longer together, she also has suffered a recent betrayal from her boyfriend of 2 years. Oliver sees her while she dances on stage at the bar they work at, and he is interested in her, but, Ava kind of gives him the cold shoulder. But, soon Ava finds herself in a situation where she needs a fake boyfriend to take home with her to a family reunion, and Oliver overhearing her, ends up offering his help. While they both feel as if they are okay with their relationship not going any further than a friendship, feelings form, and their relationship begins to evolve. Will they be able to remain friends, and not have it ruined by their romantic feelings for one another? Will they decide to take the plunge to try and have a relationship? Well, you are going to have to check out the story for yourself to get answers to those questions and more, along with enjoying the full story line. There is a LOT more to this story than what I just listed above, and I definitely do recommend that you check it out and see for yourself!

Although Oliver had a bad breakup I'm surprised he wasn't jaded, he comes across as laid back. I love the Boston world that Jacob Chance has created. We get to see characters from his past books, even if it's for a moment or two, and we get hints towards possible new couples. The way he writes it's as if you're part of the world. I can definitely say that I was left surprised by Mr. Chance when reading. I was thrown a curve ball and it was refreshing. 5 out of 5 stars, although if it could be more I'd give a zillion.

    Ava is a girl who has had a secret crush on Oliver Ice the whole time she's been in college, however, he had a girlfriend for the majority of it. So, she ended up with a douche at one point who really hurt her, and now she's jaded about relationships & dating. Oliver is also jaded himself, after catching that long term girlfriend cheating, so he's not interested in dating either. However, fate has different plans for these two people, which seemed unlikely after the first time Oliver Ava is a girl who has had a secret crush on Oliver Ice the whole time she's been in college, however, he had a girlfriend for the majority of it. So, she ended up with a douche at one point who really hurt her, and now she's jaded about relationships & dating. Oliver is also jaded himself, after catching that long term girlfriend cheating, so he's not interested in dating either. However, fate has different plans for these two people, which seemed unlikely after the first time Oliver officially met Ava at the place they both work. She's a bit mean to him, which had me laughing, but also, was like WTH girlfriend?! Anyway, they partook in the fake boyfriend/girlfriend situation when she has to go to her family reunion, but doesn't want to see that ex who was a total douche. They have seriously chemistry, but spend quite a bit of time with walls up, though each are struggling with catching feelings. ICED was a great story that I simply couldn't get enough of, because these two people were perfect for each other, and delightful to experience their journey. The secondaries were super fun as well, and almost tried to steal the spotlight. So, do Ava & Oliver finally admit their feelings to each other?! Hit that one click button to find out, as I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ALL!

    ICED is the sweetest and most swoon worthy read I’ve read in a long time! Oliver is so compassionate and caring and Ava is just as sweet and understanding. These two couldn’t have been a more perfect match. ICED is just another confirmation as to why I adore Jacob’s words! I could literally feel the love every time Oliver touched Ava’s face or she looked into his eyes! As I expected, Jacob delivered another 5 star chill bump top fave!

    Oliver is quite chivalrous, “don’t worry about it. I’m getting free food and a weekend away with great company. I don’t mind paying for the room.” Oliver is a protective mam, “he was enjoying the sight of you a little too much.” I liked this book, I liked Oliver and Ava.

    Love loved loved! This story had me smiling and feeling giddy. Oliver and Ava were just perfect. I love that their relationship started out as friends and they got to know each other before they gave in to their attraction. Their connection and attraction was undeniable but it was made all the better from the waiting and anticipation. The way Jacob wrote this had me unable to put this down and I swear, I did not stop until I was done.

    I enjoyed reading about Oliver and Ava’s story. It was definitely cute and sweet. Oliver is definitely a swoon worthy hockey player and Ava dances at Score the club Oliver bartenders at. We feel the love at first sight. Oliver and Ava fight it for most of the book. But, the chemistry is explosive between these too. A little agnostic with a couple of ex’s but very short lived.
