Just Add Ice by L.C. Chase

The second book in the multi-author Games We Play Series is Just Add Ice by L.C. Chase

From the blurb:

Sparks fly when ice meets fire.

After eight years in the minors, Rayne “Rain the Pain” Hamilton has realized two things: One, his chances of getting called up to the Big Show are rapidly dwindling with each passing season; and two, he needs a plan for life after hockey. What he doesn’t bargain for is the gorgeous instructor at the fire training center he attends during the off season, who ignites his heart with burning desire.

Nick Seavers had a great life until his husband died suddenly, and his sun blinked out. His demanding career firefighting and teaching the next generation of firefighters are the only things keeping him sane. The last thing he wants is one of the new trainees, a larger-than-life hockey player with mischievous eyes, taking up space in his head and making him feel things he never thought he’d feel again.

As the heat rises between Rayne and Nick, Rayne receives an offer for a new contract and has to decide: Move to yet another city and start all over again or step off the ice and into the fire with Nick.

Heather's Review:

I truly enjoyed getting to know Rayne and I appreciated his down to earth approach to his career and what he wanted out of life!  I also appreciated Nick's reluctance and restraint and I knew that the slow burn from this book would be rewarded at the end with a lovely HEA.  This is not your typical sports romance book, but I really felt the characters and the story line!  This was another great addition to the series and I can't wait to see what's next!  It can easily be read standalone.
