**I voluntarily read and early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** What fun series of books these are! I loved this whole gang of characters in the first book, but I was salivating for Dax and Demi's book by the end of Cold As Ice because I knew it was going to be awesome and I wasn't disappointed! Dax Campbell is one of those guys that is a magnet for good looking women and he's always been one that doesn't do relationships. Four years ago at the previous Winter Classics, he ended up in bed with fellow athlete, and one of the women who is part of his circle of friends, Demi Harrison. It was great for both of them, but per usual, the relationship ended with the conclusion of the Winter Classics because that's how Dax likes it. Demi might have seen it differently though. Fast forward four years and while training for the qualifier for his snowboarding race, where he's absolutely dreadful, Dax realizes that there is only one thing different this time versus his last Winter Classics - his relationship with Demi. Now that he realizes she might be the key to his success, will he be able to talk her into another no-strings attached arrangement this time around? I loved the push/pull between Dax and Demi and I loved how Demi was finally able to bring Dax to his knees. You know how it goes, the ones that don't want to fall, always fall the hardest and it was no different this time. I really enjoy the writing of Piper Rayne and the way the stories flow. You get enough information to really feel connected to the characters, but the story keeps rolling right along. This is another wonderful addition to their growing stable of books!

I enjoyed this installment in the series, and have to really give props to Piper Rayne for delivering another exciting story. Dax was the resident loudmouth of the crew in "Cold As Ice". The guy who said dumb things at the wrong times and never seemed to get why he was annoying. A true commitment phobe, he's all about the fun. In this book, we see beneath the life-of-the-party façade to a more considerate, caring & human Dax, and Piper Rayne made us love him. I liked that Demi gave as good as she got with Dax. We didn't get much of her POV, but we sure understood her feelings! It was fun watching/reading as they got way too close to the just friends/not just friends line, and seeing how torn Dax was when he realised that they had fully tipped over. I enjoyed their banter, as well as their chemistry. Most of the gang from Book 1 is back, and provide a great complement to the story line. I can't wait to read "Break the Ice", as I am totally curious as to how Skylar & Beckett's story plays out. I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.
I freakin love On Thin Ice by Piper Rayne! Book two of the Bedroom Games brings this series up a notch and deserves a 5 star review! I liked Dax from the get go. I knew he had a "colorful" personality, but I fell for the playful Olympian. Knowing he had a past with Demi made me wonder if these two will not be so stubborn and let their relationship be. I am enjoying that these series are coming out in line with our current Winter Olympics. Makes my imagination wonder if any of this kind of action happens behind the cameras. And no! I am not only talking about the sexy scenes, although that does through a lot of heat into the story. I love how these characters show support for each and truly have love for the sport. From the drama down to the sport, On Thin Ice hits all the check marks for me. I am excited for Beckett's story coming up next <3
