Book Review for Hearts on Thin Ice by Katie Kennedy

 Hearts on Thin Ice by Katie Kennedy 

Published June 18, 2024 by Alcove Press 

Genre:  Sports Romance 



Taken from Goodreads:
A pro hockey player falls for an interior designer in this charming debut sports romance. For fans of Icebreaker and Set On You, this flirty workplace rom-com explores mental health, belonging, and finding your way in the world. 
Nick Sorensen had once been one of the fastest men in hockey—until the devastating plane crash that took the lives of his best friends, leaving him the only survivor. Now he’s physically ready to get back on the ice, but his coach is concerned Nick isn’t doing as well, mentally, as he says he is. Case in Nick’s apartment is completely empty, apart from a single chair and a mattress on the floor. 
To prove he’s fine, really, Nick hires Alyssa Compton, an up-and-coming interior designer, to decorate his space. Alyssa’s thrilled at the chance to prove herself to her demanding boss—with job security at last, maybe she can finally put down roots and create a home for herself too. But Nick turns out to be infuriatingly stubborn and impossible to work with, and just when Alyssa decides to throw in the towel on the whole thing, Nick shows up for her in a way she never could have expected.   
The icy path ahead of these two lost souls may be slippery and cracking, but when it comes to love, sometimes all you need is someone on your team. 


My Thoughts:  Hearts on Thin Ice is a fun sports romance.  The book is easy to read with fun and quirky characters and a storyline that has a little depth but much more romance.   The loss of life, much less witnessing that loss first hand, is a touchy subject that Katie Kennedy handle with respect.   

I am a hockey fan so I could understand Nick’s hockey career and how hard it is to come back from an injury.  I cannot imagine how hard it is to watch people you love die a horrible death.   I love that Nick had so much support from his family, teammates, friends, and especially Alyssa.    Alyssa is the rock for him, she calls him out on his BS, she takes care of him when he needs it, and she falls head over heals for him.  They are perfect for each other.   

Thank you Alcove Press for a copy of the book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
