    One thought on “Melting The Ice Prince”

    1. 1.5Not a book for me unfortunately. I found the dialogue a bit stilted and the storyline didn't work. I did like David's caring nature but I found the progression of his and Nick's relationship awkward with too much melodrama. My one big concern was Sammy, who was a great character, but when I read he was autistic it didn't mesh with what I know of the characteristics. His openness and willing to communicate and interact with people was fun to read but not something I equate with a person with a [...]

    2. David is known as the ice price, which is sort of ridiculous, he is just a very good secretary to the owner and CEO of a huge corperation.It's his job to cut out all the unnecessary BS and people wanting to take up valuable time, I thought the Ice Prince title he held at work a little strange, anyway, Nick, the boss's son comes back after a year away.Their first meeting didn't go well and there is some antagonism between them, but as Nick worms his way into David's life he sees what a great man [...]

    3. **3.5 Heart Melting Stars**Any book that can make me cry, is a winner for me! Loved this endearing and at times, angst read!

    4. This is badly written, trashy m/m category romance. No, wait. Let me rephrase that. This is a badly written, trashy hetero category romance in disguise. A thin one. A see-through raincoat, maybe. Single-use.The writing is… eh. It has some issues. Clumsy and heavy-handed. I’ve seen much worse, but even so it’s a little distracting at times. It accomplished getting the story told, but no more than that.Ah, Nick. Such a jerk. I feel like I am reading a 90s het romance again.Striking a bet to [...]

    5. Full disclosure - my sister is an Autistic adult & I am her caretaker. I say this upfront because this colored my reaction to this book. I decided to give it a go because the subject matter is one I can fully relate to from my personal experience. That said the character of Sammy was nothing like my sister up to the point where I kept wondering, "Is he supposed to really have Aspergers or is this lack of research?" I know that everyone is different, no two people on the spectrum are going to [...]

    6. This was a very nice read. Sammy was the highlight of the story and David's reaction to the betrayal was a good one, too. I enjoyed the whole thing very much, up til the final 20% - there it simply got too much. (view spoiler)[If this nice little lady had a fortune stuffed away, wouldn't she at least had a decent health insurance? And the meeting with Nick? Too much coincidence. (hide spoiler)] Therefore 4 stars.

    7. 4 HeartsReview written for MM Good Book Reviewsmmgoodbookreviews.wordpress/David is responsible for his special needs older brother, Sammy, he has done everything he can to protect them both after their horrible childhood and that includes ensuring nobody can hurt them emotionally, his icy persona keeps people at bay until his bosses son, Nick, walks through his office door. Nick has been burnt by love in the past, now he is a ‘love ‘em and leave ‘em’ man, but when David rejects his adva [...]

    8. A sweet, heartwarming book that I especially enjoyed because of a secondary autistic character named Sammy, Melting the Ice Prince suffered the same problem for me as the recently reviewed book Blue Line: The author skipped over the first several weeks of the MC's relationship and instead gave us a summary. We are told instead of shown that the two are falling in love. This just isn't nearly as satisfying in the end and I found myself disconnected emotionally during the story's climax. I really [...]

    9. Pretty predictable. I also wasn't sure how much research the author had done into Asperger's Syndrome. I've known a few high functioning Aspie and Autistic children and the descriptions here didn't seem to ring true. It actually sounded more like she was describing someone with Down's Syndrome. I could be wrong but it's something that threw me out of the story a few times.

    10. Because David has had problems in his life and also has had to take care of his older brother who has autism, he develops an icy cool persona to keep people at a distance. His defenses begin to crumble when he meets Nick who happens to be the son of his boss. They’re initially hostile with each other so Nick has an idea to get revenge. He enters a bet with his dad to win David’s affection and melt his icy façade.Initially, and even after some thought, this seemed like a ridiculous bet for g [...]

    11. This is oldie for me back when Silver Publishing was opened. This is the kind story that goes from 0 to 100 real quick in the love department. You aren't missing anything if you haven't read it, but easy book to read while killing time.

    12. Wold have given it a four but the Aspergers diagnosis was just kinda off behavior wise. That got to me a lot because I am studying for my licensing exams and have been reading about disorders until my eyes bleed.

    13. 3 Stars. Review originally Published Here:joyfullyjay/2013/04/reviewDavid Talhoone is known as the “Ice Prince” around the office. He’s the personal assistant to the CEO of the company and his icy demeanor keeps unwanted visitors away and his boss productive. He’s not only cold in the office, but outside of it as well. He is the caretaker for his older, autistic brother, and Sammy is his main priority. David doesn’t have time or the desire to let his guard down and bring someone else i [...]

    14. David Calhoun has the nickname of Ice-prince at his office because he doesn't let anyone close. He is very good at his job. He is taking care of his autistic older brother and doesn't have time for a relationship and any he has would have to include Sammy ( not in an intimate way). He meets Nick his bosses son and is filled with lust but the two men hit it off wrong from the beginning. Will Nick and David be the ones to melt the ice around the others heart? I recommend you read this one to see.T [...]

    15. "Melting the Ice Prince" could've earned another star or perhaps a star-and-a-half for the uninspired plot, characters, and dialogue. The story held my attention or would have if the author had done some research on autism-spectrum disorders before she claimed Sammy had Asperger's. The autism spectrum is broad, but neither personal experience nor research has convinced me that Sammy would fall anywhere on it. I'm not sure the author considered the effects of a "massive stroke," either, but I'd h [...]

    16. Amylea Lynn has written a wonderful story about David, his brother Sammy, and Nick. David has been looking after his older brother Sammy since his mother left them with their abusive, alcoholic father when David was nine and Sammy was twelve. Because of the abuse,David has hidden his heart behind a wall of ice to protect himself and Sammy from any more pain. David also struggles to work, pay the bills, and take care of Sammy. The blurb covers most of the basic details, but you'll have to read th [...]

    17. David has earned his Ice Prince reputation by always seeming calm and stand-off. His boss challenges his son Nick to get David to go out. Nick loves a challenge but suddenly he loves David more but now he's trapped between the challenge and the reality. When a conversation is overheard things blow completely out of the water. It was fun to see the new challenge of making up to David. Loved all the special little extra twists that the story added as well. I always enjoy a story where the minor ch [...]

    18. I really, really liked this. I adored Sammy, I thought he was so sweet. I thought the characters were goodobviously, I kinda saw what was going to happen when things blew up in Nick's face, but I enjoyed reading about them. Also, the ending was just so sweet. I just wish that the first couple of weeks they spent together went into more detail, rather than just summing everything up in a couple paragraphs. All in all, really enjoyed this. I've liked the last few things I've read from this author, [...]

    19. This novel was light and sweet with a heart warming end. The author described the earlier stage of their relationship but left it to the imagination of the readers to fill in between that time to when David found out about the bet. Well, even so, I still liked how the story ended up and how it made me feel sad, angry and happy as I progressed though the story. Sammy was just too adorable and the story would not have been complete without him :) I wanted a big finish but the author opted for a si [...]

    20. Honestly, my standards are always ground-low because I know how little TRULY talented authors write romance. Here I sit, though, struggling to recall being more offended by a book. Can't think of a time. This author knows jack about autism. Not one gotdamn bit about ASD. Yet, she's making money off of ignorance easily cured. I've not a shred of respect for this ignorant person. Someone should burn her laptop.

    21. I really liked it :)and I shed tears a few times during this book and tried really hard not to ruin my makeup :)Love Sammy! He was the most adorable man :)The ending I was not ready to leave Nick and David I just wanted more:(

    22. The only character I enjoyed was Sammy. Nick and David- underdeveloped. Story was rushed. Almost insta love. And the angst?? The BIG MISUNDERSTANDING??? Never really cleared up or explained.I justThe two stars are for Sammy.

    23. Pretty standard Harlequin romance, very formulaic. Sammy was admittedly very cute, but I still found the characters to be likeable but not explored with enough depth to be truly loveable.The 2 stars is not because this book is bad, but because I've read better.

    24. I had a couple of biggish issues when reading this, which makes it too hard for me to rate. And, yes, that's a cop out.

    25. it was amazing. it made me cry like a baby. everyone should grab a kleenex box and read it. i couldnt put it down.
