4.5 out of 5 Kisses from TwoLipsReviews.com
AJ Llewellyn and Stephani Hecht could not have been named more appropriately. From the beginning I was drawn into the world of hard core sports, boxing and hokey. The emotional neglect and lack of nurturing endeared me to both Angel and Cristano. The misery of being used and blackmailed endeared me to Alex. Intense passion stained my cheeks with blushing and made my mouth water. But it was the overall picture of the story that affected me. I enjoyed reading Tiano and Alex’s story, and I hope soon Angel’s will come to light. I’d recommend this read to any of my friends as a must read.

Fire and Ice (written with Stephani Hecht) Literary Nymphs 4.5 Nymphs:
Fire and Ice is A.J. Llewellyn’s latest collaboration, this time with author Stephani Hecht. Set in the sports world, the authors bring us two heroes. Cristiano, a hard working boxer struggling to make ends meet as he goes to school with the hope of one day leaving the boxing world behind, and Alex, a hockey player returning to the ice after an accident almost killed him. While the two come from completely different worlds, the attraction between them is strong. The authors make this the focus of their story rather than the sport that each man works in. With rich secondary characters peppering the tale, A.J. Llewellyn and Stephani Hecht keep the story flowing smoothly. I will be reading this one again.

Aptly named, Stephani Hecht and A.J. Llewellyn combine their talents to produce, Fire and Ice, an intriguing tale that will heat you up with the passion and cool you down the tragedies.
Fire and Ice has a lot of depth to the story. It is more than a romance for Tiano and Alex. It is a tale of love and sacrifice contrasted with selfishness and lies. Tiano is struggling to make his life more while Horatio seems to have it all, but does he really? The twists and turns, combined with the honor and love, make Fire and Ice an intriguing tale for the reader and a winner for Stephani Hecht and A.J. Llewellyn. Reviewed by Elise.
He put his glass down. “Come here. Give me your best shot.”
“I don’t want to hurt you,” Alex protested.
“Then don’t.” He reached out his hand to Alex at the same moment the hockey player came to him, their lips colliding, in a long, passionate embrace. Their kiss went on so long and they both got so worked up, so hot and sweaty, they started to peel off clothes.
“I love your body,” Alex said.
Cristiano never took his gaze from Alex’s face as he dimmed a couple of lights.
“I love yours, too,” he said. “I’ve been wanting to touch your skin for two days.” He stepped back into Alex’s arms again and kissed him. He took Alex’s shirt off and recognized it as Abercrombie and Fitch. He was impressed. Man, they were both naked, but still on fire.
They began touching each other, avid, sensual little explorations. Cristiano touched Alex’s chest and felt a thrill at its warmth. It was surprisingly soft. Being a boxer, he had a few bumps and bruises. His ribs on the left always hurt and Alex seemed to find the exact spot where it was almost unbearable.
“Does that hurt?” Alex asked, gazing into his eyes.
“Yes.” It hurt like hell to admit it. “I never tell anyone. You admit you have pain other guys hit you there.”
Alex’s eyes grew soft. It was the only thing about him that was soft. His cock, big and beautiful, was hard. They moved to the bed, but really it was to get more comfortable. Cristiano was so anxious for Alex to fuck him, he almost couldn’t believe it. He felt Alex’s hot breath on him as he bent his head to kiss and lick the hurt rib.
“Your secret is safe with me,” Alex said into his mouth, swabbing his lips with his tongue.
Cristiano went crazy when Alex got off the bed, but calmed when his soon to be lover brought back the bottle of mineral water they had started. Alex took a sip and the condensation dripped onto Cristiano’s chest. Alex licked it off. They took turns sipping from the bottle. The bubbles made Cristiano feel shy, but still deeply aroused.
Alex put the bottle on the nightstand and his cold tongue licked from Cristiano’s belly button down his left thigh and then detoured into his inner thigh.
Cristiano opened his legs slightly but Alex shouldered his way between his parted thighs and Cristiano looked up at him, seeing the pleasure in Alex’s eyes as his tongue worked on Cristiano’s thighs and moved to his cock. He suppressed a shriek watching Alex sucking him with total passion. Nobody ever sucked him this way.
The few women he’d been with were not very good at it. Angel…Angel had been good at it, but it was not passion, it was control that drove his desire. He enjoyed having control over another human being, man or woman.
No, it wasn’t like this with Angel, or anybody else.
