If you’ve read Sosie Frost before, then you know she is a gift to the BWWM genre! Her stories are swoon worthy, laugh out loud masterpieces. Adrian- An Ironfield Forge Hockey Romance, is the first in the series about a new Ironfield team. From other books, readers know that Ironfield is a football town. However, things are about to change! Adrian is a professional hockey player that requests to be sent to the Forge in the expansion draft. Part of his motivation is to escape focus on an injury he sustained in a very unique location & in a very unique way. The other motivation for Adrian is that Ironfield is where his best friend Clover lives. Clover (who is as cute as her name) is a flight attendant that travels the world looking for adventure. She’s the spark to her best friend Adrian’s stability. Clover propositions Adrian with helping her make a baby, and since Adrian cannot deny Clover this happiness, he agrees. This is where the fun begins! Adrian and Clover have been best friends since Kindergarten. While this is a best friends to lovers romance, it’s easy to see the love between the two from the start. Frost brings her hysterical scenes and wit (#Slip&Slice) to Adrian’s book, and there were several times that I found myself laughing loudly!! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I am a HUGE fan of this author and was happily surprised by this new book & series. I will absolutely borrow this book via Kindle Unlimited and read again! I highly recommend Adrian- An Ironfield Forge Hockey Romance. Sosie Frost is starting my 2021 right. I have missed this author and am so excited for the stories of Adrian’s team members. I believe that Beau is up next and cannot wait for the hijinks that await. If you have not read Sosie Frost before, you are missing out. You should definitely read her other series and one-click this book!!

    Clover has baby fever and she wants her platonic best male friend, Adrian to be the father. He’s convinced she needs to visit another travel destination on her “bucket” list. However, Clover will not be denied, and Adrian is definitely opposed to the turkey baster method. Which means these two will be hitting the sheets (over and over again) until the bun is in the oven or they exhaust themselves trying to reach the finish line. All the fun is in them getting there. Highly Recommended: Read It.

So many lovely & disastrous moments. I really love the level of detail that went into this story.

Adrian Alaric is a hockey player & captain of the Ironfield Forge. They have known each other since kindergarten. The book starts with Adria ***I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review*** I just love Clover & Adrian sooo freaking much. So many lovely & disastrous moments. I really love the level of detail that went into this story. Clever barbs about Marie Kondo & Sun Tzu show an intelligence that just usually isn’t evident in most romance stories. Clover Crosby is a flight attendant. Adrian Alaric is a hockey player & captain of the Ironfield Forge. They have known each other since kindergarten. The book starts with Adrian at the doctor’s office. A follow-up after his most embarrassing injury of getting hit in the groin with a hockey puck which was all over social media. There is this hilarious moment where he knocks the male anatomy model over & the penis becomes imbedded in the knothole in the floor. Next enters the doctor who messes with him a little bit which I thought was unprofessional. Still, she gives him a cup to get a specimen sample of his sperm which he takes but does not follow through on. For me, I was chagrined. After a serious injury like that- I mean his testicles ruptured, wouldn’t you want to know that the swimmers are swimming??? Even Clover says to Adrian that he could tell her anything including “how the sausage & eggs are frying in your pants today”. Meanwhile, Clover doesn’t ever tell Adrian she is a virgin but it’s inferred when we find out she is getting off on her best friend’s hot tub jets & other household appliances. Summarily, it all amounts to that Clover wants to have a baby with Adrian. She is tired of flying all over the world & wants to settle down. Adrian at first balks at the proposition of being the baby daddy but of course is won over by the prospect of sex. Still, there is wariness because they are so obviously in love with each other & neither wants to admit it. The sex is raw & intense. Heady, steamy & sticky. Add in a party from hell at Adrian’s in which his fellow players try to turn his hot tub into a fondue pot, bring out the paintball guns & accidentally order male strippers who impromptu mud wrestle. The longer it goes on the worse it gets. It ends with the Russian guy, Vasha dropping his pants to show off his heart-shaped pubes & a live-tweeted brawl between Leo & Felix. Always a moment of chaos. Then on the disastrous flight from Ironfield to San Francisco, the cat- Sniffles gets loose. The owner digging through her bra for hidden cat treats was quite the visual of hilarity. Along with Adrian stuck between two nuns for the duration of the flight. From there is gets worse (or better, I can’t decide). Adrian gets up from his seat & one of the nuns goes to reach for his ass. He then hands the toddler who is throwing a tantrum for cookie a hockey puck. Big mistake. The toddler throws it, hits one of the nuns in the face & there is blood everywhere. The offended/bloody nun brings out a ruler & intends to smack the child which gave me flashbacks to the Catholic grade school I attended as a child. Meanwhile, Clover is dashing about trying to corral the cat. Adrian comes to the rescue, handles the crises & delivers the cat back to its crate. At this point, I am rolling in laughter. A couple more PR disasters later, Adrian & Clover are making some very real choices when it comes to their careers. They own up to their love for one another. I think that drew the most tension for the book along with every reader secretly wondering is Adrian really healed from his injury & will they make a baby after 4 months of trying to conceive? It delves into some very real issues that most people deal with- self sabotage, loneliness & healthy attachment. For a moment, I was panicked as much a Clover when she is called about Adrian not showing up for practice but then he shows up on the flight & proposes to her. Gotta have that happily ever after. This story is fun, sexy & the wildest of rides.

I got this book as an ARC and immediately jumped in because I love Sosie Frost and the world she’s built in Ironfield.

I do love books about hockey, though. Especially of the romance variety, seeing as how I’m a romance author/editor/superfan. So of course when I saw that Sosie was expanding her Ironfield world into hockey, of course I jumped at the chance to read her new series first! Clover wants a baby. But she’s single and not exactly interested in any man around her. She’s too busy jet-setting around the world with her bestie, the new captain of the Ironfield Forge, Adrian. He’s fully recovered from an injury that everyone in the world can’t stop talking about and it’s a MAJORLY EMBARRASSING ONE. I don’t usually do spoilers, and I can’t remember if it’s in the blurb or not so I’ll mark this as spoilery, but he took a puck to the balls. And one actually ruptured. Yeah. Ouch is putting it lightly. So, what worked for me was the easy friendship between Clover and Adrian. They had chemistry and history and knew each other inside and out. Except... he had no idea she was a virgin. That’s the kind of thing best friends know. I found it a little strange that even though Clover knew about Adrian’s sex life, he knew nothing about hers. But okay, it furthers part of the plot. I can go with that. What bothered me was that she kept insisting that what was missing was a baby. What would fix her life was a baby. What would make her whole was a baby. That’s not how this works, sweets. I get it. You want to settle down and stop just being a freebird. But why wait so long to reveal the truth of what was said in the hospital? And why doesn’t Adrian EVER take the test? Why bring the doc into the picture at all if he never goes back? Okay, I guess I did get spoilery in this review. That’s why I knocked off a star... I didn’t get why she took so long to just come out with the truth and he didn’t just put on his big boy pants and take the test. Or tell the team the truth about why the team was put together to begin with. I am super interested to see if the other guys on the team can get their shirt together and actually be a team vs the spoiled ashholes we see throughout the book. Especially Beau. Ugh, I wanted to punch him every time he was on the page. Which means Sosie will give him an EPIC redemption, and likely make me wait forever for it because she knows how to build suspense. 😭

    This won't be the best read of 2021 but it sure is fun and super sexy I really enjoyed this book. I have been looking for something light, fun, and sexy for several weeks. This was the 41st book I've read this year (thank you Amazon reading insights). It certainly won't win any literary prizes but it put a smile on my face. The Forge is a brand new expansion NHL expansion team made up of league misfits by design. Adrian is the captain and the only player on the team with a respectable reputation.

The Forge is a brand new expansion NHL expansion team made up of league misfits by design. Adrian is the captain and the only player on the team with a respectable reputation. Clover is his best friend and has been since kindergarten. The injury he suffered the previous season really scared her and made her start questioning her priorities in life. This book was quite a page turner for me. The steamy scenes were phenomenal. If you don't like long, detailed scenes, you won't like this book. I had absolutely NO problem with those scenes. The dirty talk was flaming hot. I would have liked to have had more story outside of those scenes but they didn't need to be shorter. Largely, the length of those scenes was due to each character thinking about how beautiful the moment was, how much they couldn't believe they hadn't done it before, etc. It wasn't pages of body part descriptions. In fact, Ms. Frost seemed to only use about 3 words to describe those parts and the ones for the female parts were more tasteful than necessary. The scene with the hit tub was pretty funny to me. As was her flight from hell. Reminiscent of Pippa Grant or Lucy Score humor. One small disappointment I had was in trying to make a scary, the couple didn't do any research, which would have told them it usually takes several months to conceive. And trying once a month isn't the best recipe for success. This is the first book I've read by this author. I hope she adds more to her books outside of the bedroom in the future but I will keep reading for the light, fun aspects of her stories.

(who I am hoping their stories will be better)The author never describes Adrian, heck I am not even sure what his nationality is, we do know that Clover is African American, however I don’t inderstand why the author never discuss race or fully disclose the person ethnicity. IMO this book is slow, witty at some parts but slow, the book reminds me of a young adult or someone not comfortable discussing sex with quotes like “he took my petal” or “the man explored my petals with lavish praise” what in the world does that even mean?!? In one scene in the book I wasn’t sure if they were having sex or if we was reading Clover thoughts. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Adrian is an introvert hockey player still on the mend from a serious injury that has left him being the butt of many jokes. These two soulmates have been forever entwined but have now reached a point where their relationship is on the precipice of being something much more. Will taking that step damage their lifelong friendship? I enjoyed the journey of Adrian and Clover in trying to figure out the dance of becoming lovers from being best friends. The hard part wasn't the actual step from platonic to sexual since each had long thought the other sexy but the fear of what could change between them. I like that each was sure to reassure the other that even with things changing that they still loved each other & were important to each other. As I read their story, I appreciated how the emotions of the other remained imperative... which doesn't meant they didn't each get it wrong at times, but I never doubted that these two characters love each other and are in love with each other. Also, Adrian & Clover's story showed what happens not just when you're scared to embrace your true north on all levels but how being true and honest with one's self can open the door to many fulfilling rewards.

Through it all, the building tension of the team and the dynamic duo that is Adrian and Clover, creates a great story, couple and beginning of a series. To say this misfit Hockey Team is intriguing is putting it mildly. Overall, a sweet start to this new series, HEA and all.

So imagine Adrian's shock when after he suffers a quite unique and embarrassing injury on the ice, Clover tells him she wants a baby and she wants Adrian to contribute to her cause. I really enjoyed everything about this story. I cannot wait for the next books in the series. 5 stars!

    Sosie Frost giving me hockey?! I was so hype I jumped into this hard. And I was disappointed. Even though friends to lover isn’t my favorite trope I trust Sosie and she delivered all over the place. Adrian and Clover were adorable, evenly matched in both seeing themselves clearly and yet knowing that nobody else could understand them the way the other did. Joining an expanse team set up for failure theres a stacked deck but that doesn’t smother their fire for one another. The sexy times were hot Sosie Frost giving me hockey?!

The banter was adorable and the broken team with such potential was so on point. As a romance reader I was pleased and as a hockey fan I was pleased so I can’t wait to recommend this to everyone who might listen.

    I love Sosie's books and this one is no different. These 2 are best friends and have been for 20+ years. Adrian is a Hockey player and Clover is an Air stewardess. Adrian has a rather nasty accident with a puck and it requires surgery and Clover is by his side through it all. While coming out of the anaesthetic, he asked clover something but he doesn't remember. And this gives Clover a crazy idea. She wants Adrian to give her a baby.

Clover is getting restless up in the air and no real place to call home. But I think she's always know where her home is but she's too afraid to go after it. I really enjoyed this book. I loved both of them together. Adrian was rather lovely. And Clover was great. I loved how supportive Clover was with Adrian and pushed him to be the best version of himself. The only thing that annoyed me really, was all the chaos, again. There's really no need for it and sometimes I just didn't find it funny. And it can detract from the story. When them parts came up in this book, I skimmed it. Sorry.

    Adrian centres around hockey player Adrian and flight attendant Clover who were best friends since kindergarten. Fast forward 20 years and they are still best friends with deep feelings for each other.

Clover was a tiny bit annoying but still likeable. In all, this was a totally funny and spicy friends to lovers romance that will leave you wanting for more. I was given an ARC for my honest review.

    Sosie does It Again! I first read the Touchdowns & Tiaras series. Sosie introduced us to the Ironfield Rivets, the football team. Inthe first book, all of the important players are introduced. Then she focused in on one with some side continuation of the others. Then, at the end, BAM! You know who the next book is about and can't wait! And that is how Adrian goes.

I can't wait to read about the rest of the team and get their back-stories.

    The situation reminds me of the football series and that was disappointing to me. I'm hoping as we move forward I don't see mirror images from these hockey players. Clover was more immature than I could appreciate, and the lack of communication between her and Adrian frustrated me. In the end I was more interested in the Ironfield Forge story than I was in the story of this relationship. I wish there had been more focus on Adrian in his role as captain of the team and his developing relationship The situation reminds me of the football series and that was disappointing to me.

    I received the ARC, in exchange for an honest review. This is a typical friends to lovers story. Adrian and Clover have been best friends for twenty-five years. He’s a professional hockey player for the new hockey expansion team, the Ironfield Forge, she’s a flight attendant. One suspects that the attraction for one another has always been there, it’s just discovered via disguised way, which is later revealed. The dialogue between the characters, is always funny and well written. Plenty of heat, I received the ARC, in exchange for an honest review. This is a typical friends to lovers story.

    I love this author and usually have no real critiques. I enjoyed the book, characters and plot overall. It started really slow for me, a slow build is fine but it was muddled down with the too many intotcate details before it got to tb heart of the story. I always like that Sosie’s stories build as you read them, but maybe, in this case, I was to impatient. It's definitely worth read it's just a slow burn. But major burn and sizzle once the story really gets going. It would have been a five star I love this author and usually have no real critiques. I enjoyed the book, characters and plot overall.
