Review: Trapped Under Ice by M.J. Schiller

Rock star Chad Evans's tortured past hides just beneath the surface. Even fans screaming out his name in ecstasy can't drown out the screams of his childhood. He can usually keep it under control, but not always. Tonight the alcohol doesn't seem to soothe. Part of the crowd, Beth Donovan smiles, really enjoying herself for a change. But her smile isn't usually this bright. It is the kind of smile that masks sorrow. Three years just isn't long enough to get over losing Paul. When a vicious attack behind stage brings this unlikely pair together, something changes inside of them both. But can a jet-setting superstar and a Midwestern lunch lady ever manage a real relationship? And even if they can, will the person sending Chad death threats take it all away? Or is it their fate to remain forever trapped under ice?

While Beth and Cassie are out attending a Trapped Under Ice concert they are suddenly attacked and who should come to their rescue but none other than Chad. There’s an immediate attraction between the widow and the rock star but will they be able to overcome their pasts to have a future?

I have been eyeballing this book for a while and was more than thrilled when I was asked to review Trapped Under Ice. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down. I loved this book! This is a great romantic story between two people you just wouldn’t see together. M.J. Schiller did an outstanding job of humanizing Beth and Chad instead of pigeon holing them as rock star/lunch lady stereo-types. The fact that the female lead is not a 20-something year old is a big plus in my book. The flow of the story was smooth and the characters were all very real. The secondary characters were great and quirky (Roger is my favorite!) and add to the story seamlessly. Next time someone asks me for a good book to read, I will definitely be recommending Trapped Under Ice.

I was provided a copy of this book for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.
