Give me an O. Give me a W. Give me an E.N. And give him to me. NOW. ~ Icing On the Date

ba477-jenniemarts_icingonthedate2_1400pxWhen I was scouring Amazon in search of a quick, sweet and sexy read and happened upon the books that make up the Bannister Brothers series, I knew I needed to read them. One, because I’m really into hockey books—not that I even watch hockey—and two, because I’ve read several books now by Jennie Marts, and enjoyed them all. There’s something so very easy about reading a book by Ms. Marts. They’re not overly angsty or steeped in drama. They’re fun and flirty, and they have handsome, kind, soft-on-the-inside men like these Bannister boys, who steal hearts and panties like it’s their job.

So, I’ll start with this simple fact: Icing On the Date (Bannister Brothers Book 1) was a great read. A wonderful opener to the series which made me excited to read more. Gabby + Owen made me laugh, smile and swoon. The writing was engaging, the story lovely but not taxing, their meet-cute funny, yummy and unique. It’s a book that is very easy to get lost in and fall in love with, what with its gruff, explosive hero and hard-working heroine, and by the time I finished it, I simply couldn’t wait to see what came next for the delightful Bannister brothers.

Which was why I dove straight into the next book (after also grabbing the novella, Worth the Shot, which is sandwiched by books one and two—and is itself a steamy, fun and quick Read It). And Skirting the Ice (Bannister Brothers Book 2) blew me away with the nerdy goodness that was Jack Bannister.

Except when it comes to Murphy, the girl next door. He was so taken with her, and I was so taken with them, that I had to pause several times to message a fellow nerd-loving friend to gush and pressure her into downloading it ASAP.

Skirting the Ice might have come with a healthy dose of intrigue and mystery, which was a real treat, but mostly, it simply came with feels and funny moments and insecurities that made me all kinds of swoony over Jack + Murphy.

And his brothers.
And this series.
*Sigh*

“Sorry. That’s pretty nerdy, huh? It’s gotta be so sexy to take your top off and have a guy have an asthma attack just from looking at you.”
