Product Description

Product Description

Pepper O’Malley isn’t one to be toyed with. Fool her once, shame on you. Fool her twice, and they’ll have trouble finding your body. She used to dream of white picket fences and happily-ever-afters, but now she lives in the real world. As the saying goes, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” especially when that woman is a redheaded spitfire.

Griffin Locklaine always viewed commitment as a four letter word. He was clear about what he wanted from the start and made no apologies for it. He didn't care if he came off cold as ice. He lived for his job, his family, and his friends. He had no desire for a relationship. That was, until he saw the once-young-and-scrawny Pepper all grown up.

They’re like oil and water, fire and ice. A volatile combination that should never work together. Unfortunately, fate has other ideas. A spark like theirs left ignored has a tendency to burn out of control, leaving everyone to wonder who will be left standing when it finally explodes. Only one thing is certain. When they finally come together, it’s going to be epic.

**Fire & Ice is Griffin and Pepper's story. It is book 1 in a spin off series for characters introduced in Love Hate Relationship. It is recommended you read Love Hate Relationship first**

I have been eagerly waiting for this book after meeting Pepper and Griffin in Love Hate Relationship. I wanted to know more about them and their history & I wasn't disappointed. I love Jessica Prince's writing style as she immerses the reader into the story and creates characters which are funny, emotional, strong & sexy. I couldn't put this book down and finished it in 4 hours. For those that have read LHR, all the characters are back including Tomas! I loved everything that came out of his mouth, and Navie is as adorable as ever. I can't wait to read Richard's story next.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars 22 April 2016
By Nmmomof4 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Overall Opinion: This was cute. I still liked Love Hate Relationship better, but Griffin was pretty hot. I don't think we got really deep into the characters or the storyline tbh, and I was extremely frustrated with the ending too. If your looking for a light, sexy, and sometimes funny book -- this is a good one for you.

**I would highly recommend reading Love Hate Relationship before this one, because otherwise you might be lost**

***See for my full review with spoilers***

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Pepper and Griffin's story. Griffin is one of Pepper's older brother's best friends, and they meet when Pepper is 12 and he is 21. Pepper claims love at first sight, but every time she sees him she is disappointed by his lack of interest. That is until she is 21 and he ends up taking her virginity and leaving her the next day. The next 4 years are spent at each other's throats because Pepper hates him for what he did, but Griffin is ready to change that. They start secretly seeing each other, and fall in love. There are some hot scenes, some funny moments, a little drama...and they get a HFN ending.

POV: This alternated between Pepper and Griffin's POV.

Overall Pace of Story: Good until the end (see closure section). I thought it flowed well, and I never skimmed.

Instalove: No. They've known each other for many years.

H rating: 4 stars. Griffin. I liked him. Yes, he was a manwhore previously -- but he was ALL about the h in this book. He was a pretty hot alpha too ;)

h rating: 4 stars. Pepper. I really liked her sassy, no bs attitude. I didn't rate her 5 stars because of the misunderstanding that happened close to the end -- I wanted her to give him more of a chance to communicate what happened.

Sadness level: Low. No tissues needed.

Push/Pull: Yes

Heat level: Moderate. They have some hot chemistry, and the H is a great dirty talker when he got into it.

Descriptive sex: Yes

Safe sex: Yes and no. They stop using condoms after a std and birth control talk. No mention of past practices that I remember.

OW/OM drama: Mild

Sex scene with OW or OM: No

Cheating: No

Separation: Yes

Possible Triggers: Mild

Closure: This had a really abrupt ending with just a little closure. Nowhere near enough for me! I would call it a HFN ending at best.

How I got it: It was part of my kindle unlimited subscription.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect romantic comedy!!! 22 March 2016
By Shey Houston - Published on

I absolutely loved Pepper and Griffin, their banter, chemistry and the tension between the two made Fire & Ice the perfect package for this well written romantic comedy. You will laugh, maybe cry a little and even want to throw your kindle a time or two but it will be so worth it to get to the amazing end. Fire & Ice takes you on a wild journey of two people so perfectly wrong together that they just fit. A true testament to opposites attract.
Jessica Prince did a fantastic job with this story, the characters are strong, the secondary characters are just as fabulous and bringing in the others from the rest of the books made it all that more entertaining. Fire & Ice is the perfect blend of humor, sass and sexiness, don't miss out on this one folks!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This was such a wonderful read & I can't wait to read the rest of this series as all the characters in this book were wonderful 4 April 2016
By Itsy Bitsy Book Bits - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Fire & Ice by Jessica Prince was such a wonderful read. This was my first book I've read by this author but I will be reading more!! Fire & Ice has a double meaning in this book, as you'll find out, one is its the name of our main female character's, Pepper O'Malley, store. Pepper is a fiery redhead who takes no crap especially from the man she loves to hate, Griffin Locklaine. In this whirlwind of a story that takes you back to Pepper as a young teenager who is in the middle of awkwardness and the first time her brother brings Griffin home from college with him, all the way to Pepper in her early 20's as a young beautiful woman. Griffin and Pepper now get along as well as Fire & Ice or oil and water you take your pick. When did Pepper start hating the man she thought she loved for a decade? Well a woman scorned and all you'll find out quickly! But what happens when Griffin, the man who swears off commitment, decides Pepper is his one and only and she fights tooth and nail? This was such a great read with all the feels you'd expect!

Pepper O'Malley has been "in love" with Griffin Locklaine since she was a scrawny teenager but of course she didn't exist to him. As she gets older and makes a living on her own in her own clothing store, Griffin starts to notice her and decides Pepper isn't getting away until they explore what this is. Pepper is a very opinionated, outspoken yet sweet young woman with a passion and love of those she cares about. Her brother is a cop and also Griffin's partner and best friend.

Griffin Locklaine is the man who has the reputation of taking a woman to bed once and never again. But when his "little friend" won't work for anyone except his best friend and partners little sister, he realizes he has a problem and only one way to fix it. He has a lot to make up for after breaking Pepper's heart 4 years ago and being a coward. Commitment was always a 4 letter word to Griffin but now he sees his future just a little different.

This was such a wonderful read and I can't wait to read the rest of this series as all the characters in this book were wonderful and you couldn't help but want to learn more about them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is SCORCHING hot!!! 31 March 2016
By Franci Neill - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
5 Scorching Stars!!!

This is Pepper and Griffin's story in the first book of The Locklaine Boys which is a spinoff from Love Hate Relationship which is where we were first introduced to Griffin Locklaine. I agree with Ms. Prince that it's best to read Love Hate Relationship before reading Fire and Ice!

Now on to the good stuff!!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this book!! Talk about chemistry flowing off the pages. Pepper is the little sister of Dex O'Malley who's best friend is Griffin Locklaine and the "boy" she's had a crush on for all of her teenage years. Unfortunately, Griffin never thought of Pepper as anything more than a little girl. This is of course because Pepper didn't really come into her fiery beauty until her late teens and by then, Pepper's infatuation with Griffin was something she was still harboring in her heart.

Well, on the night Pepper opens her boutique in NYC, things change for these two in a significant way and while Pepper thinks this is the beginning of something, unfortunately Griffin messes up and in a big way and these two go back to being that oil and water mixture that just doesn't mix well.... or so we think!!!

When push comes to shove Griffin still thinks about that night and figures the way to get it out of his mind is to seduce Pepper again and things will go back to "normal." Yeah not so much....

"Have I ever told you I love it when you get fiesty?....And have I ever told you I've fantasized about setting you on fire?"

Let's just say that the sex in this book is SCORCHING hot and these two are made for each other. If they can get out of their own way that is. Oh and the other little problem is that Dex doesn't think anyone is good enough for his little sister and especially Griffin. But these two have a way of coming together that with their chemistry could power up all the lights in NYC...

"You don't wanna get dressed, that's fine with me sweetness. But I gotta warn you, I'm not feeling all that gentlemanly seeing you standing there like a wet dream."

The more I read of this book, the more I fell in love with Pepper and Griffin. There were also points in the book that I was talking to them and muttering some not nice things under my breath because of some stubbornness on both their parts. Can they overcome some of their obstacles? Will Pepper finally let Griffin in on how long she's crushed on him? Will Griffin do whatever it takes to be with Pepper even if it means ending a longstanding friendship? You'll get the answers to all these questions and a quirky sexy read with this book. I highly recommend this book and am so looking forward to the next one in this series

3.0 out of 5 stars Jessica Prince has a feisty redhead side! Funny and witty! 29 March 2016
By Ashlee @ Night Owl Reads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
**Blogger Note: I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.**

We are introduced to Pepper and Griffin in The Shattered Colors Series, Love Hate Relationship.

This story follows Pepper O'Malley and her relationship with Griffin Locklaine, NYPD officer, cousin to her best friends fiance, and best friend to her big brother, fellow NYPD officer Dex O'Malley.

Pepper meets Griffin at the young age of twelve, when Dex and Griffin are in their first year of college. There is where she discovers love. Throughout her teen years, she goes through many changes, as any teen does, and Griffin is there to witness it all.

At the age of twenty-one, Pepper is on her own, living in NYC, when she opens her own clothing store, Fire & Ice. The night of the grand-opening was a huge part of her life and where her journey with Griffin officially begins.

When I heard Jessica was writing Pepper's story, I was so excited. I am still excited for book two in this little spin-off series. I know you are probably wondering why I rated it only three stars. I have my reasons. I love Pepper, love the character, but I feel like something was missing. Throughout the whole book I felt that way. And as I was reading, it was predictable! I knew what was going to happen. I know, I need to be slapped! And I HATE saying this about Jessica Prince! I never have rated her books this low, but I didn't feel as connected to Pepper and Griffin as I have to past characters.

That is just my feelings with these two characters, if you haven't read Jessica Prince before, you might feel completely different. This book is funny, witty and Pepper is KICK-A**! She is a feisty redhead who loves oatmeal creme pie! Don't mess with her oatmeal creme pies! I love that she is a female character not afraid to shove her face after a rough day. That is the act of a real woman!

Again, Jessica had me laughing! She writes the best romantic-comedy's! I look forward to the next Locklaine story!
