Book two in the Buckin' Bull Rider series.

Olympic medal winning figure skater Leah Fitzpatrick, dubbed "The Ice Queen", is on the downslope of her career when she finds herself roped into a joint promo gig on the professional bull riders' tour. She's paired with "The King of Rodeo", Brady Parrish, and although his looks could stop traffic, she's got a future to worry about that doesn't leave room for knocking boots with the sexy rider. No matter how hot he is.

Brady is at the top of his profession. He's living the good life, and has no idea anything is missing until the cool Leah comes along. He sees something in her that hints at an underlying fire, and sets out to prove her nickname wrong. In the midst of their steamy affair, he falls hard. Blindsided by the potent combination of Leah's beauty and vulnerability, Brady is determined to melt "The Ice Queen's" heart.

Cassandra Carr's characters have spunk and charisma, something I've noticed in each of the three books I've read by her. These two together - Brady and Leah - burst from the pages with their chemistry. She effortlessly brings the story to life with realistic dialogue, descriptive imagery and steamy sex. This is a hot read you won't want to miss.

With a premise of opposites attract, COLLISION is a steamy story of the Ice Queen colliding with the Rodeo King. But these are just their public personas because in real life, neither are truly what their nicknames state, especially Leah. She hated the Ice Queen nickname yet she perpetuated it with her own actions and attitude. Though readers come to realize she was lonely, had one friend (her manager) and no connection with her family. Her persona gave her the distance she needed from the public so when Brady broke right through that barrier, Leah had no idea how to cope with Brady.

It's when Brady draws Leah out that readers see the true tragedy behind her facade. I only wish there was more development for Leah - it was far easier to get a read on Brady but that may have been because he was a secondary character in the first book, Impact. Together, they made a perfect pair - and I am not so sure they really were opposites. As athletes, they understood their mutual way of life with training, competing and discipline.
