On Ice by Trisha Harley McCarthy πŸ’• Fun Facts, Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway πŸ’• (Sports Romance)



Zoe Simmons receives a text on her wedding day. Her fiancΓ© called off the wedding. No explanation and he is soon traded to another hockey team, the Detroit Steels. She is devastated and has an emotional breakdown. After a few months she returns to her lonely life. Numb and withdrawn, she throws herself into her work as an assistant to general manager of the NHL team The San Jose Otters. Fast forward three years, The Otters are contenders for the Stanley Cup that include a shocking trade, Killian "Ki" Connery. The man who left her at the altar in humiliation and shame. Another blow comes when her father, Jed Simmons, negotiated the trade of her former fiancΓ© without telling her. How will she be able to endure being around the man her heart yearns for but her mind rebels against? Not to mention the scandal that is about to break opening up her private life to further scrutiny by the media?

Killian "Ki" Connery

The woman he loves jilted him at the altar and he is banished to Detroit to play for The Steels. The former star and captain of The Otters is crushed by the betrayal of his love he's never gotten over. He survives through sheer will power and playing hockey while fighting the underlying demons plaguing him. Jesse Ward comes into his life and they become America's Sweethearts of the media. Little does Ki know the part Jesse played in his breakup with his true love Zoe.

This story will keep you on your toes with an intense love story, challenges, betrayal and overcoming the odds that love conquers all.

Another great angsty book by Trisha Harley McCarthy, author of the acclaimed Granite Bay Series.


My book On Ice, A Hockey Romance was inspired by author Maria Luis who wrote The Blade Series. I had the opportunity to interview Maria on my weekly podcast and discussed her series and how it prompted me to write my own hockey romance. The team in the book is based on the San Jose Sharks, my hockey team and Brent Burns, defenseman and captain. He was the model for Killian "Ki" Connery also known as Ki the Sly of my fictional team The San Jose Otters. He also the captain and star defensive player. I spent hours browsing hockey websites and video for scenes in the books. I learned a lot of cool phrases related to hockey such as hat trick, puck bunny and chirping. A hat trick is three goals scored by one player in the same game. A puck bunny is a hockey player groupie and chirping is trash talking. The book also touches upon mental health issues and how they affect relationships. There are some definite teary passages in the book. You have all the feels in On Ice not to mention a quadruple love triangle and twists and turns galore!



Ki smiled and closed the distance between us. The heat from his body sent shivers up my spine. He reached out and tucked a wayward piece of hair behind my ear. My knees went weak, and the lack of pouncing prowess was probably the only thing that kept me from throwing myself at him. I was sure he had lots of eager puck bunnies at his beck and call. All he had to do, was crook his finger, and they would come running. My gaze landed on his sensual lips, curved into a hint of a smile. I wondered what they would feel like against mine. He pulled back and the spell was broken.

“Would you consider going out with me sometime?” he asked.

Who—wha— ? I nodded mutely, shocked by the turn of events.

“Is that a yes, Zoe?” My name rolled off his tongue like fine wine—smooth and heady. Fire shot through my veins. Before I could stop myself, my mind was drifting in and out of fantasies involving me and that tongue of his.

“Yes, Ki, I’ll go out with you.” I blinked rapidly.

He pecked my cheek. “I’ll be in touch.”

  22. I've heard that breaking up by text is awful. Breaking up by text on the day of your wedding is even worse. This looks like a tear-jerker and a heart breaker.
