Title: Fire & Ice
Series: The Locklaine Boys (Book #1)
Author: Jessica Prince
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy
Synopsis:Fire & Ice
Pepper O’Malley isn’t one to be toyed with. Fool her once, shame on you. Fool her twice and they’ll have trouble finding your body. She used to dream of white picket fences and happily-ever-afters, but now she lives in the real world. As the saying goes, Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially when that woman is a redheaded spitfire.
Griffin Locklaine always viewed commitment as a four letter word. He was clear about what he wanted from the start and made no apologies for it. He didn't care if he came off cold as ice. He lived for his job, his family, and his friends. He had no desire for a relationship. That was, until he saw the once-young-and-scrawny Pepper all grown up.
They’re like oil and water, fire and ice. A volatile combination that should never work together. Unfortunately fate has other ideas. A spark like theirs left ignored has a tendency to burn out of control, leaving everyone to wonder who will be left standing when it finally explodes. Only one thing is certain. When they finally come together it’s going to be epic.
**Fire & Ice is Griffin and Pepper's story. It is book 1 in a spin off series for characters introduced in Love Hate Relationship. It is recommended you read Love Hate Relationship first**
A sudden bang from the direction of my kitchen caused me to freeze instantly. Sheer panic filled my veins like ice.
Someone was in my apartment.
Holy shit! Someone was in my apartment!
Now, a rational person would have grabbed the phone and called 911. Or at the very least, found a safe hiding spot so as not to get hacked to pieces by a potential ax murderer. But I’d never been described as rational, and my hungover state only made that worse.
Bypassing my cellphone completely, I quietly pulled my nightstand drawer open and reached for my Taser. That’s right. I was a single woman living on her own in New York City. Fuck pepper spray. If someone was going to screw with me I was hitting them with fifty thousand volts. I didn’t mess around.
I loved Love Hate Relationship so I knew I’d have to read this as soon as I could get my hands on it! Jessica Prince once again never disappoints.
Pepper was in love with her brother’s friend Griffin for as long as she could remember. He never really seemed to notice her as she went through those awkward teenage years, but years later after he finally took notice and Pepper thought she stood a chance after all this time he broke her heart after one night and a note the next morning. That was it and Griffin was long gone and out of Pepper’s life about as fast as he arrived. Her chance at love was over and her heart was broke.
Pepper vows to never open her heart to that creep again and is furious she ever did in the first place. Just as she’s getting along with her normal life Griffin appears again and she knows she has to keep her heart guarded this time around. She wouldn’t let the same mistake happen twice. These two will keep you laughing and wondering what they will say next. Griffin knows he screwed up BIG time and convincing Pepper to trust him again will not be easy. Even after what he did you still want these two together. You can’t help but feel the chemistry between the characters. Just when Pepper thinks she’s keeping up a good front she let’s Griffin in without even realizing it. Get ready because these two will keep you turning the page.
Can Pepper open her heart again and let Griffin in? Or will Griffin once again prove he can’t be in a serious relationship and break Pepper’s heart once more? Can these two be together after all this time or will Pepper’s grudge get in the way of how she really feels in her heart?
