A MelanieM Release Day Review: Rocking Thin Ice by Z. Allora

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

Can a sexy rock star show a relationship-phobic ice skater that there’s more to life than gold medals?

When ice-skating’s bad boy Blaze first glimpses Drake, every fantasy he’s ever had flares to life. Not only is rock star Drake sexy as sin, his songs awaken a longing in Blaze that he’s denied for years. But Blaze Parker doesn’t believe in relationships—at least not those that last more than twenty minutes.

Drake Keys has dreamed about the sensual ice skater for years. When Drake is kicked out of his band because of his bisexuality, he drives across the country to finally see the man he’s had a crush on skate live.

Though the attraction is instant and intense, both Blaze and Drake have baggage that puts any relationship on thin ice. Blaze is driven by a long-ago betrayal to prove himself a champion, and Drake, uncertain about the future, hopes to resurrect his music career. As they take a road trip together, Drake romances Blaze, hoping to melt his heart and show him that love is possible… but not without some tough decisions.

Rocking Thin Ice by Z. Allora is a sweet, easy to embrace contemporary romance.  For me, I found it to be a quick read, full of engaging characters, an interesting plot and a lovely romance.  It skates, pun intended, on the edge of a instant love, but  as both characters have flirted in various ways with each other over the years, it feels like their attraction and love comes more naturally, regardless of time.

Rock star and ice skater star.  That is a marvelous combination and is works with great chemistry here.  If Drake comes across as a little too sweet, well, I enjoyed it.  He was a delight and a terrific match for the snark that is Blaze.  The journey to a long term relationship and HEA is fast paced and one I was absolutely committed to.  I read it in one swoop of a read and loved it.

If you are looking for a lighthearted, sweet romance, then I can recommend Rocking Thin Ice by Z. Allora.  Delightful all the way around from characters to plot.

Cover Artist: Tiferet Design works for the bad boy of skating.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
