Review: COLD AS ICE (Bedroom Games #1) by Piper Rayne

Cold As Ice (Bedroom Games #1)
Release Date: January 29th, 2018
Source: Received an egalley in exchange for an honest review.

It may be Winter Games, but the bedroom games are about to begin…

Competing in South Korea on the world stage is hard enough.

Having to spend the entire press tour beforehand with a woman who hates me?
Karma really is a bitch.

While she’s spent the last four years loathing me, I’ve spent them ignoring the guilt that gnaws at my stomach.

All Mia Salter cares about is that I’m her brother’s ex-best friend and it’s her duty to hate me. The funny thing is, I barely noticed her back when she was trying to keep up with us on the slopes. Now, as both of us prepare to go for gold, I’m seeing her in a whole different light—and it involves a whole lotta different positions.

No one said the path to the Olympics would be easy.

R E A D   T O D A Y!

All copies sold the during release week include the prequel short story, Iced Out!

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?

We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon-holed into a specific type of story. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it!

All that, AND we thought it'd be a helluva lot more fun if we did this writing thing together!

What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindles full of one-clickable books. We're both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We're both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes, quirky heroines that make us laugh, and lots of sexy times. Here's hoping you do, too!

I'm practically a broken record now because I'm always sharing the fact that I absolutely LOVE sports romances, but here I am again, admitting that fact. I love sports romances, and I have a serious soft spot for ones that tie in with the Olympics, Winter or Summer...doesn't matter. Some people like to read Christmas or Halloween stories around the holidays, well me...I like to get my Olympic fever going with a good ol' sports romance. When I saw that one of my favourite author duos, Piper Rayne, were writing a series of books revolving around Olympic snowboarders, I was super excited and I knew that I needed to read them...well, I've now read the first one and let me tell you, they did an amazing job! 

I absolutely loved COLD AS ICE! Grady and Mia were amazing characters. I loved their passion for snowboarding, I loved the tension between them, and I loved how Piper and Rayne uncovered the shared past between them. As soon as I started reading I didn't want to stop! The mix of tropes in this story was pretty interesting, and it definitely had me compelled! The majority of the story is told through Grady's POV and I loved that! He was cocky, but he was pretty damn endearing and had a hidden sweeter side that I loved getting to see. Mia was sooooo fierce, and I absolutely adored her! I loved how driven she was, and I loved seeing her relationship grow with Grady. They were seriously sexy together! I also loved their friends so much! I'm extremely excited for the two follow-up books in the Bedroom Games series...luckily they're being released every two weeks so we won't have to wait long! ;)

COLD AS ICE was sexy, funny, and just an absolutely wonderful ride! If you’re looking for an awesome Winter Olympics romance this is definitely one worth reading! I adored Grady and Mia, and I loved that we got a prequel of their story at the end of the book, too. Now I can’t wait to read Dax and Demi’s story and I’m looking forward to some Grady and Mia cameos! ;) 

Who else loves reading Olympic-themed sports romance?
Does COLD AS ICE sound like a book you'd like?
