Ice Cold (bxb)
Being the son of Olympians - with a former figure skater as his mother, and hockey player as his father - Axel followed under the wings of his parents and flourished as a prodigy in his own love for figure skating. His talents knew no bounds, and he shone brighter than the stars in the heavens, capturing the world in his light. Axel's dazzling brilliance, however, was extinguished far too soon when a tragic accident took his mother away from him - along with the purity that once came with his love for the ice, the same ice he once found solace in, but has now crumbled.
Further betrayal from a man he had given himself to stopped and enclosed his heart in shards of frost, leaving his blood frozen, cold - unlovable. Axel, once called the 'Prince of the Ice', thus became known as the 'Ice Prince' - once a piece of art, now only a broken skating machine.
The chill flowing through Axel's veins remains unbothered for most of his young career, just how he likes it, until at least, he meets Beau Archer - one of the hockey jocks his father coaches. The man is beautiful, captivating, and burning with passion - and in Axel's eyes he is beyond dangerous.
He must stay away.
The moment the two of them meet eyes, the enigmatic pair is quick to hold the blades of their skates to each other's throats, a volatile chemistry, like fire and ice. Axel convinces himself that he wants nothing to do with the fiery hockey player, but Beau has plans otherwise. He wants to unravel the winter that stirs deep within the pained eyes of the alluring Axel Beckham, but doing so would require him to fight through a storm that they must be willing to overcome - together.
The icy prince fights to keep his desire on nothing but the skates on his feet - not even on the ever-burning Beau Archer. But Axel must be careful, because even the iciest of hearts will melt under enough pressure.
