My Opinion
Hearts On Thin Ice had me in tears within the first chapter. Nick is a multi-faceted character; He is sensitive, competitive, easy-going, fun. I really fell in love with Nick and at times felt a lot of empathy for his experience.

I wish there was more hockey action. The only mention of hockey is being that Nick is a hockey player.

Overall, this was a great book and I will recommend to friends and followers.

4.5 stars; Very good book, shelf-worthy and will be recommending to friends/followers.
2.5 spicy pepper emojis; 1–3 sex scenes.

Thank you
