Fire & Ice by Rachel Spangler

Another one for the favourites shelf!

What was the book about?
Max has taken the wrong turn in her sports journalism career and trusted the wrong person. She wants to rectify her mistake and the only way to do that is to cover the Buffalo Curling team.

When she arrives and sees Callie for the first time, she is more than a little attracted to her but being here and reporting on curling sours everything and she needs to get through this to make it back to the big leagues. But the more time she spends with Callie, the more she wants something with a little less ice and little more fire.

Featured Tropes: Sport romance

Book Strengths:
Rachel Spangler writes the best sports romance novels on the market in Lesbian Fiction. One of my all-time favourite books is Heart of the Game so from then on if it is sports and is by Spangler, I am 100% onboard. This book definitely lived up to its hype. Not only was I glued to the page from the minute I started reading it, (and not to sound too much like Max) but I enjoyed learning about curling, a sport honestly that has never been on my radar.
The writing as always was tight, and the pace was perfect for this storyline. I enjoyed the fact Max and Callie were not only attracted to each other, but frustrated with each other too. In fact, some of my favourite moments were when Max would stuff up some Curling reference and Callie would just school her in the sport.
The secondary characters really made the story more exciting. I especially loved Layla. In fact, I wouldn’t mind Layla in a romance novel.

Character Chemistry:
The chemistry between Max and Callie is there from the moment they lay eyes on each other, even through the moments when they were frustrated with each other. Rachel Spangler was able to write this book in a way that at any given moment you can feel the desire they held for one another. When they did finally get together, it was more intense because the whole build up to that moment felt like foreplay.

Heat Rating: 🔥🔥🔥

From the first chapter to the epilogue I was hooked. I can’t wait to see what Rachel Spangler brings to the table next!

Star Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
