Review: Break the Ice by Piper Rayne (Bedroom Games #3)


Note: This ARC was provided by the authors via Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.

Break the Ice is the third and final book in the Winter Games-inspired Bedroom Games series written by the writing tandem of Piper Rayne. The last among the trio of Winter Classics couples are best friends Beckett Myers and Skylar Walsh. If you've read the first two books in the series, you already know how close these two are, but they've also got the kind of relationship that their other friends think should be taken to the next level, given that Beckett has always had more than platonic feelings for Skylar. But just like his best friends Grady Kale and Dax Campbell, Beckett is a wee bit hardheaded and needed a nudge (cough, PUSH, cough) to get him on the right track.

When Beckett first saw Skylar, he wasn't exactly thinking she was best friend material. Nope, he wanted her in a far more basic way. However, things didn't work out that way. This beautiful woman had the kindest, most giving heart he had ever seen, and he knew that she deserved someone far better than him. After all, Beckett wasn't the type of guy to do relationships, and Skylar was very much a relationship-type of girl. So, friends were all they were going to be, and there was not a single thing that Beckett was going to do to jeopardize that. But then he ends up with a broken arm, and Skylar offers to take care of him. Close quarters plus constant togetherness equals complications.

I doubt I'm the only one who was tempted to give Beckett a smack upside the head while reading this. Gah! The man was frustrating as hell at times, which actually surprised me. But then I guess I could excuse it to the fact that he found himself in a situation that put him in daily physical contact with Skylar. For best friends, these two really need to work on their communication skills. Skylar wanted more from him, but she kept feeling him out rather than feeling him up, and well, Beckett should have quit trying to offer to find her dates, for heaven's sake! Still, the patented Piper Rayne-humor was present, as was the happy ending, resulting in a four-star rating for Break the Ice. ♥
