Publisher's Summary

Will the heat building between a disgraced reporter and a rising curling star melt the already thin ice they each are on?

Max Lauren made a mistake that shattered her pride, heart, and career in one fell swoop. Relegated to covering the lowly game of curling - she already resents the so-called “sport" - she steps onto the ice, where things get infinitely worse. She’s been knocked down before, and she’s always gotten back up, but a frosty resolve goes only so far in a world of people who thrive on ice.

Callie Mulligan is the amiable skipper of America’s second place curling team. Upbeat, optimistic, and with a fiery passion for an icy sport, she has both the mental and physical skills to become Team USA’s top contender. What she doesn’t have is the fame or the funding. Coverage from a journalist of Max’s caliber could be the answer to both problems, if only Max wasn’t so cold to the idea. As Callie tries to warm her to the sport, a little bit of heat grows into a fire neither of them can contain.

Passion, competition, ambition, redemption, and raw need collide as the bright lights of success and celebrity grow hotter, but can the fire between Max and Callie be sustained when it’s put on ice?

Slow and a bit boring for my taste

If you’re not into Curling or have no interest in learning about it, this book might not be for you. Maybe with a different narrator I would have been more drawn in, hard to say. The story itself was predictable. I do enjoy Rachel Spangler books most often, but this one just fell flat for me for some reason.

Excellent Audio!

I loved Fire & Ice. I had already read the book. Story of perseverance, from both main characters. I know nothing about the sport of curling, but I loved the book anyway. Ann Etter did a great job with the narration.

Stellar! Fantastic Dialogue & Stream Consciousness

There's a but, so keep reading... Sure, there are four paragraphs (read sections) that put my teeth on edge, BUT this is one of the best listens and, undoubtedly, best reads, I've experienced in a while. I'm a fan, a fan of the pros, the reality mixed with learning something new about a sport I had no understanding of previously. I wondered when one voice would come in, if that was the voice of the author. Then, the alternate voice and protagonist would come in, and I just had to wonder at the ability of the author to see things so well from both points of view and still capture what I could imagine myself saying were I only as witty and on point as the characters. Well done, Ms. Spangler. Well done!

Another great one from Rachel Spangler

Rachel Spangler has written another great romance, this time based around the sport of curling. I love stories about sports and it was great to learn more about curling which has always fascinated but puzzled me whenever I watch the winter Olympics on TV. The story has a perfect romantic arc, the characters are great and the narrator is good. Another one to add to my favourites and listen to again.
