Sum It Up!  With his slow Texan drawl and his easy manner, it was hard not to fall for Brady.

Olympic medal winning figure skater Leah Fitzpatrick, dubbed "The Ice Queen", is on the downslope of her career when she finds herself roped into a joint promo gig on the professional bull riders' tour. She's paired with "The King of Rodeo", Brady Parrish, and although his looks could stop traffic, she's got a future to worry about that doesn't leave room for knocking boots with the sexy rider. No matter how hot he is.

Brady is at the top of his profession. He's living the good life, and has no idea anything is missing until the cool Leah comes along. He sees something in her that hints at an underlying fire, and sets out to prove her nickname wrong. In the midst of their steamy affair, he falls hard. Blindsided by the potent combination of Leah's beauty and vulnerability, Brady is determined to melt "The Ice Queen's" heart. (Goodreads) 

I really liked Brady Parrish in the first Buckin' Bull Riders story, Impact. As the reigning Rodeo King , Brady has it all: the looks, the charm, the sex appeal, the talk and most of all the walk! With his slow Texan drawl and his easy manner, it was hard not to fall for Brady.

Fast forward a few months from that first story, and we have Brady doing a PR gig for the CEO of their biggest sponsor. Incidentally, this sponsor is also the main backer for the skating tour in which Leah Fitzpatrick is "The Ice Queen." From their first meet cute in New York City to their first non-date, Brady and Leah exude smokin' chemistry. I loved how Leah's internal dialogue expressed her volatile emotions, yet Brady's thoughts kept niggling at him that Leah wasn't as affected as he was: Perhaps she really is "The Ice Queen"?

But as the rodeo tour unfolds, Brady and Leah both grew to trust each other. Leah lets down her iron clad walls (albeit only in short bursts during the lovin')...and Brady gives and gives but at the last moment, he holds out on the big stuff! Hurt and rejected, both Brady and Leah learn that it takes a leap of faith to merge two worlds, but only three small words to build a future. 

One line I would have loved to read in this story would have been Brady defending his woman, by saying "She is the Reigning Queen of the Ice...but certainly no Ice Queen!" Preferably said all macho, alpha and a bit menacing! Enjoy!
