Fire and Ice…
Hot nights and hotter moves melt the ice.
Battered American hockey player Colt Coltrane intends to conquer Sweden, but after a bad spill on the ice, the goalie is at the tender mercies of a hot massage therapist with a grudge against all athletes. All his good intentions to behave vanish when she strokes him with her warm hands.
Disa Ellstrom is disgusted with sports figures who expect more than a deep massage. She dumped her cheating husband and her puck bunny status to build a practice to help people, not hurt them. But her frozen heart melts faster than a spring thaw when a sexy goalie limps into her life.
Combine a hot-blooded American with a Swedish spitfire and they're sure to sin in Stockholm.

An international hockey player and a masseuse sounds like an interesting combination.
Sloane Taylor's STOCKHOLM SINDROME was a story I really wanted to love but there were too many subplots and not enough time for development.
Colt is an American hockey player in dire need of relief for his aches and pains. While in Sweden, he meets Disa. Not only does she know how to massage his sore muscles, but there is an instant connection.
If the storyline had focused on their relationship, it would have made a perfectly satisfying read. Instead, there is a vicious ex-husband who uses BDSM to abuse women, a teammate with a serious attitude problem and a drug sting operation. Trying to tie up those threads is enough of a challenge in a full-size novel, but it creates too much confusion in less than 80 pages.
While the love scenes are intense, there is not enough plot development to support the action. As the second book in the series, there is a possibility that the back story was shared in the first installment. Regardless, the book showed great promise but didn't quite make it to the goal.
