Review: IceBreaker by Diedre Martin


Paperback, 289 pages
Published February 1st 2011 by Berkley 

Attorney Sinead O'Brien's new client is Adam Perry, the star of the New York Blades. It's a good thing she doesn't date clients, especially jocks. Charged with assault on another player, the private, no-nonsense Adam knows this is his last shot at Stanley Cup glory. Sinead quickly discovers that there's a wounded man under that helmet, and she's falling for him-hard. Can they play on their feelings without penalties?


When I started reading Icebreaker, I had no idea that it was book number nine in Dierdre Martin's New York Blades series. I actually didn't find this out until I was close to the ending of the book. It definitely can be a stand alone. I didn't feel lost or confused about anything at all. 


Adam and Sinead were a match made in Heaven. Their attraction to one another was practically smoking off the pages as I was reading. Dierdre did such an amazing job describing their emotions and thoughts for one another, that I actually got a tear or two in my eyes. I really felt for Adam the more I read about him and his past. To go through everything he did and still be standing, is very brave. Sinead is also a very strong character and all she has is her family and her job. Like Adam, she too has gone through a lot. But when Adam and Sinead meet, slowly they both start seeing the brighter side of things.

Dierdre Martin really has a way with words. I got so lost in Adam and Sinead's emotions almost like they were my own. I was rooting for them from page one. Without giving away any spoilers, I will say that the ending was perfect! The more I read about Sinead and her past, the more I was hoping the book would end the way that it did. This was a great read! Now I guess I have to go buy the first eight books in Dierdre's New York Blades series LOL. 


4.5 out of 5 stars!
