Publisher's Summary

Jaxon Holland is more than a top-scoring center for the Las Vegas Wolves - he’s also the biggest “player” on the team. Women love him, flock to him, lust for his sculpted body. 

Yeah, life is good for this hockey player. Or it was, until lately. 

After blowing a key play in what may have been the biggest game of the season, the fans sour on Jaxon. Good thing memories are short, right? Uh, they’re not when a widely popular sports blogger, known simply as Mr. Hockeypants, calls Jaxon out and places all the blame for the loss on him. 

Life goes from bad to worse, and Jaxon wants to get away. 

Good thing one of his teammates has a beautiful, secluded beach house he can escape to. Sand, sun, surf, and lots of alone time sound good to this disgruntled centerman. Only problem is the beach house is already occupied - by beautiful and spunky Cara Milne. 

Cara and Jaxon are off to a rocky start after an extremely awkward first meeting. Yeah, these two pretty much hate each other. But Jaxon, forever a “player” at heart, vows to win his housemate over. What he doesn’t know is Cara is Mr. Hockeypants! His worst enemy, the bane of his existence! And she’s determined that he never finds out. 

Too bad keeping a secret is slipperier than ice, especially when you start falling in love with the guy you almost destroyed. 

Player on Ice is the fifth stand-alone novel in the best-selling Boys of Winter hockey romance series. Each book in the Boys of Winter series features a different smoking hot hockey player's story.

Love Hockey then you need to listen to this series

Book 5 in the Boys if Winter Series and just when you think it can’t get any better S.R. Grey gives us an even more adorable hockey hottie to fall in love with this time it’s Jaxon Holland’s story.
Jaxon is not only a top player for the Las Vegas Wolves he is also a top player with the ladies well at least he was until he messed a play up an a blogger known only by Mr Hockeypants gets on his case making his life miserable. The off season has come just at the right time and he takes up a teammates offer of a few weeks in a secluded beach house what he doesn’t expect is the house to be already occupied by a stunning sassy girl named Cara Milne.
What starts off very rocky soon becomes a romance made in heaven when Jaxon turns in his charm to win Cara over and just when you think they have both found their soulmate a bombshell drops ....Mr Hockeypants is really a Ms. Can Jaxon ever forgive the person who made his life a misery.
Boys of Winter is one of my favourite hockey series and S.R.Grey has become one of my go to authors, I love her style of writing and I’m loving the narration of this great series. Each book can be read or listened to as a stand-alone. The narrator did a great job with the banter and the chemistry was electrifying.

I loved this hockey romance!

Such a fun listen. Great story full of humor and romance. Great characters too, I couldn’t help but fall in love with Jaxon and Cara and throughly enjoyed their story. Fantastic narrator, she brought the characters to life with plenty of emotion and unique voices for each. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Another good hockey story in this series

This enemies to lovers romance was a really good read. Jaxon was really easy to fall in love with. I loved how he fell head over heals for Cara and didn't hesitate to show her even when she wasn't ready. Cara made some mistakes along the way and this is one of those stories where you know what she is doing is going to come back at her, but it was a good story.

The narration was good, although I would have enjoyed it more to have a man read Jaxon's part, but it didn't detract from the story at all. Such a good series!

enjoyed a lot!

I really enjoyed listening to Player on Ice. I didn't want to put it down and if I didn't have work I would have listened straight through. The narrator did a great job putting life and voice to the story. this was my first from S.R Grey and wont be my last.

The players aren't on the ice for this one.

This story was fun and flirty. A bit sexy. I liked the banter, but there was nothing that just blew my mind in this one. I will admit to only reading the first in this series, but this can still be read as a standalone--I never felt lost or confused while reading this. I liked the first book more than I liked this one, but this is still a solid book.

The story was just predictable. And I realize it's romance and it has a method to follow, but I was just looking for a little more wow factor, I guess.

Either way, this is still a fun-filled, banter-filled story with some hot sexy times. If you like your hockey romance to involve little to no hockey and lots of back and forth with the characters, then this is your cup of tea.

Maybe it's even your Stanley Cup of tea.

Love the Vegas Wolves!

Reagan West narrates this dual POV flawlessly switching between characters in ways not all narrators are able to do. With a great story mostly happening off season and away from the ice it featured team bad boy/heart throb Jax Holland and his arch nemesis Cara Milne. With lots of laugh-out-loud moments and plenty of sexy times too I can count on S.R. Grey to always deliver what has become one of my favorite sports romance series to date.

Player On Ice

Poor Jaxon has been slaughtered in the media for his mistake on the ice. So he decides to get out of town during the off season. Jaxon ends up sharing a house with his nemesis only he doesn't know it yet. This series is super fun and this one is no different. At points in the book you will be killing your self laughing and at others feeling bad for Jaxon. Reagan West does an awesome job with the narration.

Fun romance!

I really loved both of these characters. Cara and Jackson has chemistry from the start and I love the banter between the two of them. I thought the story was a lot of fun.
The narrator was very good.
Looking forward to Noel’s story 😊

So Funny!

Loved this book! Jax and Kara had me cracking up from the start! I love the banter and quick whit from them both and the smoking hot chemistry between them! The narration was good, this is my first Reagan listen and she did good however I wish there was a male narrator for Jaxson's POV.

Sweet, hot, and fun Story!

This is the fifth book in the Boys of Winter Series. I love this Series, and this is a really sweet, sexy, hot and fun listen. Cara and Jaxon are both great characters! Jaxon is a hockey player and Cara a sport blogger who write under the name of Mr. Hockeypants. They share an undeniable chemistry. I love their happy ending. I have already read the next book in the Series, Vows on Ice, and I totally recommend it. The narration was well done, and easy to understand.
