Release Date
May 2011
Book 2 of Hot Ice
Erotic Romance


Okay, I'll admit it, I have a crazy, lust-infused crush. Brick, the sexy right-winger of the Orlando Vipers, is the star of all my erotic fantasies. Just a glimpse of him has me panting. So when the chance to actually work with this hot hockey player comes along, of course I say yes!

Being a world-class athlete myself, I have a strategic plan to have him all tied up with lust and desperate for me too. The thing is, plans never go smoothly. Especially when my heart pedals right into the vulnerable game of love again—completely unprotected.

Luckily this sinfully delicious superstar is just as hooked on me—phone sex, bondage, anal sex and rude piercings abound. Despite my tactical errors, Brick catches me when I fall, holds me when I cry and pleases me when I need it most. He's hard on the outside, soft on the inside and plays one hell of determined game when it comes to finding the ultimate satisfaction.

Snagging a gold medal in the Olympics for long-distance cycling was a piece of cake for Carly. Taming the bad-boy hockey player, Brick, another story entirely. Or is it?

CROSS-CHECKED is told from Olympic Gold Medalist Carly Flannigan's point of view, so we get a really good sense of how she is feeling about being the object of Brick's desires. I would have expected Carly to be super confident, but she proves that even world-class Olympians succumb to the occasional case of self-doubt when members of the other sex are involved. Although her lack of confidence in the love department was sometimes annoying, it made her less like a character in an erotic romance and more realistic, like a real woman might behave when falling in love.

Brick brings every bit of the alpha-maleness you would expect from a hot and sexy hockey player. Honestly, I almost skipped this book because I hated him in Hired (Hot Ice #1), but I sure am glad I didn't! He is bossy in that kinky, bad-boy way that lets you know he is dirty to the core…dirty talker…dirty sex…dirty HOT!

Lily Harlem brought exactly what I have come to expect from her – a great cast of characters and a deliciously erotic romance. If that's what you are looking for, then CROSS-CHECKED just might be the book for you!
