So Alex 'Simba' Simbard is the captain of the Dragons hockey team, we met him in the previous book The Code. Alex is completely adorable, he's somewhat serious, responsible and very loyal - the sort of guy you can always depend on, which is why he's the captain. He stops to help at an accident scene and gets pulled out of a burning car by rookie firefighter Jo Glievens. Jo is strong and smart and capable of holding her own, she's not afraid to stand her ground when needed - all the qualities of an excellent firefighter. The romance plot is wonderful, although the attraction is immediate it actually takes quite a while for these two to fall into bed and eventually start dating. There's a little suspense with the side plot that highlights Jo very nicely - she's not just a pretty face, she's got a job that she's good at and she has value outside her relationship with Alex.

Just overall an excellent combination of hockey and romance.

I got an advance copy of the book to review, such a delight to do share this book with you!

I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

I have to start with a little fangirling - I love the kick-ass women in this series! This series has given me new hope for m/f romance and this second book is even better than the first.

This story starts with a fire. He rescues a family. She rescues him. They are both heroic. Proby firefighter Jo is tough, resilient and wonderfully complicated. As the captain of an NHL team, Alex is talented and famous but his responsibilities can be overwhelming. Jo and Alex are both confident, independent characters. Together, they make each other stronger. The chemistry between this pair is electric and I really loved their story.

Refreshingly free from tired Chick Lit tropes, a suspense story runs alongside the main romance. I love that it is Jo with the more dangerous job, Jo who is increasingly at risk from the arsonist and bombmaker. And I really love the way Alex appreciates her strength and skills.

As Alex is captain of the Ice Dragons, there is more focus on the whole team in this second book. I love the complex relationships between the players. RJ Scott’s experience writing m/m gives her a special ability to write men and relationships between men. So many potential stories for the series emerge as each one of the players becomes a distinct character. The hockey action is brilliant - I love underdog stories.

I love this series and I really love this second book. The characters are fantastic. The plot is tight and the suspense is exciting. The I can’t wait for the next book in this series!

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the second book in the series, and even better than the first! But do read that one first as the team's story is ongoing, and we get to see plenty of the first couple too.

This is a story with a pretty dramatic plot, which ties together really well, and gives our two leads plenty of opportunity to shine. That they have a connection which is at the heart of the plot, as well as realising the power of the heart when it finds who it wants, give the book its title.

I love sports romances, so the hockey elements worked really well - and Alex's shouldering of the responsibility of leading the team in his role as captain, even when he is not playing, is inspiring and demonstrates the mettle of the man. We learn quite a lot more about a number of the team members and I am excited to see who gets their story next.

Jo is still struggling with the grief of losing her father and the disappointment of her mother about her choice of career as a fire fighter. As she gets to grips with her job, little did she expect to fall for a hockey player - after a fabulously funny scene, I might add - and through Alex she comes to terms with her past, and in his friendship recognises her future.

Their easy friendship coupled with enticing chemistry makes their connection feel genuine, and with definite potential to last the distance.

Thank you again Ms Scott

This is the second book in the Ice Dragon’s series about a hockey team and their road to romance.

Alex aka Simba is the captain of the team and the one with his head on straight, the one that has the team at the heart and strives for their winning glory. Unfortunately the team are currently going through a rough patch with a series of lost games which has caused a little friction he seeks to calm. On his way home from a game he comes across a burning car and rescues a father and child from the wreckage. Attending the fire is rookie firefighter, Jo Glievens and that night starts a sequence of events both mysterious but also of romance.

The storyline was heavy on the suspense element of the read which I felt at times overtook the romance side. As it was the development of Alex and Jo was a very slow burn and didn’t actually take off strongly until later in the book. However the plot was engaging and kept me reading hoping to find out what the mystery surrounding the bomb explosion and fires being set was all in aid of.

Overall a good addition to the series and I am hoping our sexy Russian is next in line. I already love him! 3.5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Captain and the Firefighter 11 May 2017
By Libby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Alexandre and his friend rescue a father and baby from a burning car wreck on the way home from their hockey game. After he hands the baby to his friend, he goes back to help the father. Both of them are pulled out of the car by a rookie firefighter named Jo. Alex and Jo become friends and then fall in love. The fires keep happening and Alex is worried about Jo's safety. The arsonist plants a bomb in the hockey rink and Jo is trapped in the rubble. The mysterious arsonist/bomber and the romance make for an enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot hockey star and a mystery - yes! 17 April 2017
By ButtonsMom2003 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I discovered RJ Scott's M/M books about a year ago and loved them. At the time, I didn't know she also wrote M/F books as Rozenn Scott. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to read and review her Stanford Creek series when she relaunched the books under her RJ Scott pen-name and I loved them.

I read a lot and I've come to realize that a good romance writer can usually write good books no matter what the sex of the main characters and this is certainly true of RJ Scott. I don't think I've read a book by her that I haven't enjoyed. Yes, I've like some more than others, but overall I haven't read any that were less than 4 stars for me.

After I agreed to read and review The Heart I realized that I hadn't read book one in the series, The Code, so I started with that. (Note – each book stands alone, you won't feel lost if you start with The Heart.) Let me just say that The Code grabbed me in right from the very first paragraph and I couldn't put it down. The story trope is "falling in love with my best friend's little sister" and it was freaking fantastic.

Now for The Heart… The Code was so good that I was almost afraid to read The Heart. I just didn't see how RJ could write another story as powerful as the The Code. I should know by now to trust her writing; The Heart was every bit as good but the story line was dramatically different.

I won't rehash the blurb shown above – it's a good one. After first meeting under extraordinary circumstances Jo and Alex (aka Simba) meet again and agree to see each other. Jo isn't looking for a relationship so things move at a slow but steady pace. The sexual chemistry and tension between them is HOT!

Alex is a man that any woman would be lucky to have in her corner. He's strong, handsome and cares about his teammates – wanting to always do the right thing for everyone. Jo is driven to make a success of her career as a firefighter in spite of people who don't think it's appropriate for a woman.

This story had lots of heat (pun intended) as Alex and Jo's attraction for one another grows and someone keeps blowing up stuff. The mystery/suspense kept me guessing until all was revealed. I am very much looking forward to stories for other members of the Ice Dragons hockey team.

P.S. I should probably mention that I know next to nothing about hockey. The Code and The Heart both contain a fair amount of "jargon" that I didn't totally understand but that didn't in any way diminish my enjoyment of the books. If you are a hockey fan you should enjoy them at least as much as I did and if you aren't I think you will still like them very much.

By kingsfan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the second book in the Ice Dragons series. I read every hockey book I can get my hands on as it is my favorite sport. I thoroughly enjoyed book one so I was really excited to read this one. It did not disappoint. I read it in one go and was sucked in from the get-go. I liked the people and they had heart. I will say in my opinion that it was slow to start, then it picked up momentum and I truly enjoyed it. This one has drama, and suspense as well as romance. The flow and writing were good as it has a little bit of everything in it.

This book opens with the team struggling a bit. They are on a losing streak. Captain Alex calls a closed door meeting, with his teammates to see how they can back on track. Alex is strong and very much a leader, so when he puts his captain position to a vote thinking he may be leading them astray this season. The team loves and respects him. When he leaves the arena he sees a car accident and he runs to the scene to help. He then rescues a child from the wreckage and can’t walk away, even though the car is engulfed in flames. He then goes back to rescue the father, who is trapped. Now he needs saving.

Jo is a rookie first responder (firefighter). She is new to the fire station and she is the one that pulled Alex away from the wreckage if the car. She is strong and confident and I liked her a lot.

The dynamic between Alex and Jo is there and there is tension but oh my gosh, is this book a slow burn. Now don’t get me wrong, I like how it was building up. Sometimes that is just better. This book as I stated is heavier on the suspense side with a kick of drama and romance while there is a bomber gunning for the hockey team that is a little close to home. I liked how the elements all meshed together to give this book a much different dynamic. You have hockey, the firefighters and the romance blooming between Jo and Alex.

I have to say I liked this book better than book one, and I really liked book one and was waiting for this one. It was a great read and I look forward to the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Heart-review 17 April 2017
By Carra at Making it Happen blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
One thing I really like about this series so far is the characters-they are quite well written, and I love that here in The Heart that Jo is such a strong female lead. She's independent and driven, and a true team player...not to mention a tough woman in a field dominated by alpha males.

To complement her, Alex is an alpha male in his own field as captain of his professional hockey team, but he's also one of the good guys when it comes to women (after he sowed his wild oats many years ago). They do make a good match when you consider the two of them together, though for me I didn't quite feel a solid connection between them. Though they do develop a relationship through alternative ways of communication thanks to their conflicting schedules, they don't actually have a lot of in-person time together...at least not enough for me to feel like their emotional connection could progress as rapidly as it did.

We did get to see more of the team dynamics, and for me, I was intrigued by the interesting development between Gooly and the team's newest acquisition-it led to some great drama that has my interest well piqued for his story in the next book. Speaking of drama, there's plenty to be found with someone out there bombing things...

The Heart was, for me, more about the suspense and what's going on with the team then it was about Jo and Alex even if it was their story. There's still plenty to make this one for readers 18+ with adult language and sexual content; this story is also a good setup for whatever comes next in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! I hope this series goes on forever! 10 April 2017
By Bobbie (A Page to Turn Reviews) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
To be fair, I basically knew coming into this one that I was going to love it. If you follow our blog, then you know I loved the first one and I was already completely sold on Simba as a character when I started this book. The more I read, the more I loved him, and it only took me about two seconds to fall in love with Jo, as well. I love how their love story doesn't start off in the typical way and I absolutely adore the fact that they have trials and difficulties along the way. It's easy to write a story where one or both of the central characters give up or change who they are so that they can become a unit, but both Jo and Alex maintain their characters throughout the story and if they do change, it's growth, not a sacrifice of their own being for the sake of being a couple. They're both strong characters and I am completely attached to them at this point. All I can say is that, as usual, RJ Scott left me wanting more! Between the hockey and the gorgeous guys and strong characters, I never wanted to be finished with this book. I'm pretty sure I could live in this fictional world forever and I can't wait for the next one. In fact, I'm pretty much begging for Scott to write one for every member of the team. And keep adding rookies so there are forever new players to write stories for!
