🌺 π‘π„π•πˆπ„π– 🌺 Frozen Hearts (Halston U, #1) by R.A. Smyth ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️



Halston University was supposed to be my fresh start, my chance to prove I can stand on my own, except it’s not only passing classes I have to worry about.

Secrets…Desperation…Shattered Dreams… my life is one big balancing act. But what happens if I fall?

And then there’s them - three guys, each with their own darkness and allure. My demons.

There’s Logan, the golden boy on the ice, who believes in soulmates and love at first sight. He sees me, really sees me, and I can't help but feel drawn to him.

Royce, the brooding one. He's like a storm, unpredictable and dangerous, pushing me to confront parts of myself I'd long buried and awakening something dark within me. Every interaction is charged with venom and desire, a twisted dance that's both enthralling and frightening.

Then there's Grayson, my estranged stepbrother, dead set on revenge. Plotting my demise in the shadows of his ire and resentment, even as it threatens to consume us both. But what do you do when you can’t deny the lingering feelings of attraction, of something more?

No matter how far I run, there is no escaping my past.

And, if my trauma doesn’t swallow me whole, Grayson Van Doren surely will.

As the scars of the past come knocking on my door, I'll need to embrace the darkness to forge a path of redemption, maybe even love. A future for myself, one where I survive my demons.

Frozen Hearts is a dark and seductive romance with multiple love interests that will grip your soul and leave you yearning for more. A dark, college, hockey, stepbrother romance. Frozen Hearts is the first book in the Halston U trilogy. This series does contain trigger warnings. Please see front of book for specifics.

My Review


This is the first full length romance book in the 'Halston U' series by R.A. Smyth. Spoken in 'multiple perspectives' This does end in a cliffy.

I'd tried this at least 2x beforehand then I jumped in again and for some reason that's beyond me I'm hooked, the power of third time lucky I guess!! 🀷‍♀️

The ice hockey captain (Logan - the happy go lucky golden boy)
The fighter (Royce - the dark broody one)
The business man (Greyson - her stepbrother, whose out for revenge)

The dancer (Riley - the one girl that has them all wrapped around her fingers)

Lies, secrets, lives destroyed.

I’m so glad I persevered with this one and gave it another shot, and for that I’m so thankful I did. Third time around and I connected fully, got wrapped up in the storyline, absorbed by the 3 guys who were so different from each other it was hard to believe they were close friends.

Riley is attending Halston University on an academic scholarship, she's striving to make life better for herself, to steal back at least some of the control which was ruthlessly stolen from her, to better herself and improve her life to take better care of her loved one.

First she meets the arrogant broody Royce by accidently bumping into him on campus as he cuts her down with a scalding remark cutting her to the quick, cementing her belief that the good looking ones are truly dicks.

She meets Logan as he seeks her help to improve his grades to stay on the hockey team, slowly we're wrapped up in all the feels as they navigate their budding relationship, from friends, to maybe more, he falls hard and fast for the shy girl.

HaIf way through the storyline and these guys came up with the not so brilliant idea to kidnap her to get the answers they were seeking 🀷‍♀️ and when all three reveal their faces and her gaze clashes on her last captor, she knows she's in a world of trouble. She hasn't seen Greyson her stepbrother for years, not since he kicked her and her mother out of the home they shared with him and his father.

She destroyed the only life he knew, all his dreams and aspirations were put on the back burner because he had to step in and take over the family business when his father was castrated due to her lies.
