Welcome to the Snow and Ice Games where competition is not the only thing that is heating up! The second book in bestselling Tamsen Parker’s romance series continues with two competitive teammates.

Miles Palmer has dominated the downhill slalom in every Snow and Ice Games he’s competed in. Double gold, double gold, double gold, and he’s confident he can round out his career and his trophy case with two more medals in his last appearance at the games. The only thing that could stop him? Crash Delaney.

Crash is a young upstart who came out of nowhere and shocked the downhill world with his swagger and untraditional style. As a kid, Crash didn’t have the resources to learn how to race properly, but he begged, borrowed, and stole equipment, and went to any competition he could thumb a ride to. Now the only thing between him and his dreams coming true is his childhood hero, the man whose posters have graced his walls since before he’d ridden in his first chairlift.

Miles and Crash are technically teammates, but you wouldn’t know it from the way they fight. The veteran and the nobody have both got big things riding on this race, and neither can afford any distractions. Especially not each other.

Seduction on the Slopes (Snow & Ice Games #2) by Tamsen Parker was cute and sexy but not a home run. There were quite a few things that I enjoyed.

-The characters were lovable.
-The story had a fun vibe to it.
-Interracial couple.
-Age gap.
-Childhood crush.
-Opposites attract.

But I couldn’t get past the clunky relationship development. It was bad.

  1. I found Miles’ and Crash’s “arrangement” to help Crash with his anxiety highly far-fetched. I don’t care how much you love your team but the likelihood of someone stepping up for that on a whim- pfft, doubtful. If you want to know what I’m referring to
    Spoiler
    , IT’S A BIG ONE, I’M WARNING YOU! Miles is the team captain, and he offers to jerk Crash off before interviews to ease his anxiety.
  2. The transition from “helpful arrangement” to “I have feelings for you” is nonexistent. I thought I’d accidentally scrolled past a chapter, seriously. It was off.
  3. And because of reason number two, it made the end feel rushed and not wholly believable.

In the end, I’ll give Seduction on the Slopes (Snow & Ice Games #2) 2.75 Stars, like I said it was cute and sexy just not 100% successful in its storytelling.
