She’s had no time for friends or an active social life, earning her the nickname “Ice Queen” – in and out of the rink.Blake makes a bet without knowing all the terms. His ego won’t let him back out, even though his target is none other than the American Ice Queen herself.
What are the odds the dreadlocked playboy can warm the frosty figure skater when the real games are unmasked?
Let The Games Begin. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Unmasked is a sweet and steamy story of two unlikely people coming together. Kelly and Blake are Olympic athletes ready to compete in the games. But of course Blake’s teammates have to make a bet and good ol' Blake can’t get out of it. But it’s going to take a turn that both of them weren’t expecting. Even though, I feel that this idea has been used before. And I pretty much knew where the story was going to go. I loved it. It had such heart and you couldn’t help but fall for this couple. Kelly was known as the Ice Queen but honestly, she was just super focused on skating. Because that was her life. Which is pretty much all the athletes. Blake I felt was very genuine with his feelings. I don’t want to give much away since I want others to enjoy it as much as I did. “I wasn’t a bet to her. I was real. Like she was to me.” Vernon is very talented, she’s able to create these likable and relatable characters. That it feels like your actually watching all of this play out in front of you. Overall, I give this Five Boundless Stars.
