I am hoping this book continues with updates on our two wonderful stars Courtney and Josh. I want to see them reach their dream together.
If you are looking for a hot steamy romance, this isn't it..but if you are looking for a sweet, touching romance with major emotional turmoil..this is the book for you!!
Would I recommend this book? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!
I read this as part of the Xpresso Book Tours, and received a copy from NetGalley. I think the tour ended right after I received my copy, but that's not going to stop me from leaving a review because I was so swept away with this book!
Who doesn't love a good figure skating love story? I mean, I definitely watched the Cutting Edge a few times in a row when I was younger. This book has it's own unique take on the pairs skating competition an the romance that blooms on and off the ice. I felt like the details were well researched but also placed in a way that added to the story rather than detracting from it. I was fully immersed.
While this book fits into the New Adult genre, I would classify it as clean. This is very subjective, because there were definitely some make out sessions that bordered on the edge of that line for me. It pushed the boundaries of the clean genre, so if you like squeaky clean you might be uncomfortable with where the hands and lips go in this book. If it had gone any further, I probably would have been uncomfortable myself, but as it was, things got interrupted before it got too intense.
I'll definitely be picking up the other books in this series to see where things go for Courtney and Josh!
In Crossing the Ice, Jennifer Comeaux shares with us the amount of hard work and dedication it takes to compete for your country. Courtney has two dreams, to get into Boston College and compete for the United States at the Olympics. She's not expecting to have her greatest rivals for the position on the Olympic team to start training with her and Mark, her partner. Even more unexpected is her attraction to Josh, one half of the invading pair.
I read this book quickly. There's a lot that happens in the book and it's fast paced. For fans of Jennifer's On the Edge series we do get to see Emily, Sergei, their adorable twins, and Chris. Of course Emily and Sergei play important roles in Courtney's training and life. It was very easy to like Courtney and Josh. It took me longer to warm up to Mark and I never warmed up to Stephanie, Josh's sister and skating partner.
I'd like to commend Jennifer for writing a book that was real and raw. Sometimes reality doesn't live up to our dreams. I can't fully explain how well I connected to Courtney, Mark, and Josh. I laughed with them and cried with them. I'm very happy to see that this is the first book in a new series. I hope to see more of Courtney and her journey in the future. Jennifer has once again done a great job to bring ice skating to readers in a way they can understand, relate, and enjoy.
