Break the Ice, an all-new standalone and the conclusion to the hilarious Bedroom Games series from bestselling authors Piper Rayne is LIVE!
My Review – 4.5 Stars
Skylar and Beckett’s romance was my favorite of the series. Watching them throughout the books, it was clear that their relationship was unique and so much more than Beckett was prepared for. I knew that in order to break through their friends-only stance, Piper Rayne was going to need to push Beckett out of his head and get him to lead with his heart.
I was so happy to see how the authors presented this friends to lovers romance. It’s difficult to be original and believable when progressing these types of relationships, and they did Beckett and Skylar justice. They had the perfect combination of playfulness and passion. Everything they did together only solidified my belief that they were soulmates.
At first, I thought we might see a little fake relationship thrown in when Skylar encountered her ex, but I was glad that I didn’t have to endure the torture of witnessing Beckett and Skylar “pretending” to have feelings for one another. However, the torture of watching them push their feelings aside time and again was so much worse, but in a good way. I loved the push-pull, tension, and jealousy that we see through Beckett’s eyes. And kudos to Skylar for never backing down from her quest to find happiness. She certainly put Beckett through the wringer, which he deserved and needed. It broke my heart that Beckett had such negative thoughts and zero self confidence that he couldn’t see he was worthy of Skylar’s love. Like in the other books, I was glad he had his friends to help him see the light.
The Winter Games are over, but the bedroom games are just beginning…
This is about the time I normally hang up my snowboard and chill for a while. Except this year. This year, I’m dealing with what fate dealt me at the Winter Games—nope, not gold. A broken arm.
Since I’m not close to my family, I head to my best friend, Skylar’s pad to recoup. Turns out having your gorgeous, single, sexy friend wait on you hand and foot can blur the lines between friendship and romance.
Which is exactly why I’ve decided to help her find a boyfriend.
Yeah, you heard me right. I’m going to help her comb through every dating app available until she finds the perfect man. What else could remind me of my place in her life more than watching her fall for someone else?
I can deal. I’m used to pushing through pain. I’m an Olympian after all.
“Sky.” I follow her down the hall and up the stairs. “You need…” I swallow down the bile burning my throat.
She turns around when she reaches her childhood bedroom door. The same room that has pictures of Ben on her corkboard from some dance way back when. The room that holds all her memories of a happy childhood filled with fun, laughter and love. Doesn’t she realize, she has so much?
“You need a date.”
Did that really just come out of my mouth?
I grab her hand and take her into my room, which is really her brother’s childhood room, and sit her down on the bed.
“Yeah, give me your phone.”
She digs it out of her pocket and places it in my palm.
I search the app store and select a dating app.
“What about the more traditional ones?” she asks, leaning over to look at my phone. Her hair tickles my neck, and the scent of her perfume makes my dick twitch in my pants.
“You need a beta, remember?”
I go through her selfies and select one that doesn’t show how truly gorgeous she is. It’s hard to find one though because Skylar doesn’t have any bad pictures.
“I’m not sure about this, Beck.”
I fill out her form for her while she remains silent. Once I’m done, I hand it back over to her and she stares at the screen for a long time.
Our thighs are pressed against one another and I’m fairly sure the electricity running through my body is buzzing through hers, but her gaze is still glued to her phone.
“Okay,” she says, still sounding reluctant.
“Perfect. Now, Terminator.”
She smiles and her lips brush my cheek. “Sorry, for being so needy.”
“It’s the hazard of having girl friends, I suppose.”
“Friend,” I clarify, standing up before my hands and lips listen to the instructions from my dick.
“You’ll help me pick someone out?” she asks.
She walks out of my room, her gaze glued to her phone. I follow with my gaze glued to her ass.

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. You might be wondering if you know us? Maybe you’ll read our books and figure it out. Maybe you won’t. Does it really matter?
We aren’t trying to stamp ourselves with a top-secret label. We wanted to write without apology. We wanted to not be pigeon-holed into a specific type of story. Everyone has their favorite authors, right? And when you pick up their books, you expect something from them. Whether it’s an alpha male, heavy angst, a happily ever after, there’s something you are absolutely certain the book will contain. Heck, we’re readers, too, we get it!
All that, AND we thought it’d be a helluva lot more fun if we did this writing thing together!
What can we tell you about ourselves? We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes, quirky heroines that make us laugh, and lots of sexy times. Here’s hoping you do, too!
