Off the Ice by Jaqueline Snowe is now live!
Falling for the hopeless romantic was never part of the plan…
Elle Van Helsing wants to start her life away from home. Constantly living under the shadow of her brother, she plans to find romance and survive on her own: even if it’s financially harder than she thought. Getting a job at a dive bar three doors down from her new place is the perfect solution. Well, it was until the owner has a family emergency and asks his nephew to help out in his absence. The guy she used to have a crush on until he ruined it.
Cal Holt might be a legend on the ice, but off it? He’s alone and likes to keep it that way. It’s easier to protect himself when he’s always a jerk, but the one person who gets under his skin is Elle. Torn between wanting to get to know her and pushing her away, he’s surprised when he learns she hates him. She looked at him differently the year before, and now that they’re stuck managing a bar for a few weeks, tensions rise.
She’s a hopeless romantic who wants grand gestures and sees the world through rose-colored glasses. He’s a grumpy cynic with a permanent scowl. She dreams of love, and he wants a one-night stand. She plans to build a life on campus, and he plans to leave and head to the NHL. Complete opposites in every way, they shift from enemies to friends…but Cal refuses to fall in love, and Elle deserves more. For the girl who never felt enough, and the guy terrified to feel, fear might ruin their chance at finding love.

Elle always sees the best in everyone and every situation which is part of what makes her so appealing. She is studying writing in college despite the fact that this isn’t what her family wants for her, but she is determined to prove them wrong. Needing some extra income leads her to working at a bar but she didn’t realize that would mean working with the same man who belittled her choices.
Cal is going through a difficult time and his way of coping is by distancing himself from everyone in his life so that he doesn’t get hurt again. He is destined to play in the NHL but first he needs to honor the wishes of those he loved the most but working with Elle is proving to be the biggest challenge of all. She is breaking through the walls he has built around himself and showing him that there is so much more to life than the way he has been living it.
I enjoyed these two characters as Elle is vibrant and believes in love and happy ever afters while when it comes to Cal the more we learn about him the more we understand his actions. The growth of these characters was wonderful to see as they worked to follow their dreams both personally and professionally.
