Bronwyn and Ash fit together nicely! Never was I so happy to see a break-up than when Bronwyn sent her boyfriend Brody packing-and very spectacularly too! I did not like Brody-and I think that was the author's intention. He was egotistical and very commanding of Bronwyn. She just let things slide-even though she knew he often put her down to others. There was nothing I wanted to like about him. He plain out used Bronwyn to get his own accolades any way he could. He was second-rate and I was glad to see him go! But now Bronwyn is floundering. Ash has to do some damage control, and quick, if he wants his star player to keep her head on straight for these upcoming games!
Ash has had a thing for Bronwyn(having contact with her through their teams playing one another), way before he was her coach. Things go super nova after he offers Bronwyn his help. Yes its all sorts of taboo, but he's got a job to do right?? Only things ramp up rather quickly and it is yummy! It's white hot and racy! Bronwyn isn't some wilting flower so she goes after what she wants. Ash is too smitten when it comes to her, that he gives her whatever she wants.
I loved how their love evolved! I also thought they put a lot of thought and effort into how to go public with their relationship. It was sweet and endearing! I also loved when Bronwyn, although quiet and reserved most of the time, let loose and told how she felt when it needed to be said! She was no pushover!
One thing for sure, Tamsen Parker has done her research! All of the books in the series have featured a particular sport and the idiosyncrasies surrounding it. I loved reading about the players approach and their feelings while participating. I love sports and have thoroughly enjoyed learning some new facts! I have really had fun time reading this series, as they have a bit more substance than your typical over the counter romance novel. The romance is just one piece of the plot and I find that refreshing!
The Snow and Ice Games series offers something for everyone-M/M, M/F, F/F, etc. Each book is a standalone, so you can jump in at any time, but you will want to read them all as they are truly addicting! On the Edge of Scandal wasn't quite the power player like the previous books, but it's a solid entrant and I think you will enjoy it!
For those thinking that it's an older coach taking advantage of a younger woman, rest assured it is not. Ash is actually only in his late twenties, and Bronwyn, about to graduate college, is in her early twenties. Had he not been her coach, this would be a relationship society would accept. However, because of his position, a lot of people would frown up on it.
For the most part I liked the relationship between Bronwyn and Ash, however, I had an issue with Bronwyn. I found her too needy. She said she couldn't sleep without someone holding her, yet her boyfriend wasn't staying in the village with the athletes, so obviously they had spent nights apart before. Plus it was the first night after the breakup and she didn't even really try. If she had given it a few days she may have discovered that she would be fine on her own. When Ash needs to address the rumors about the pair and he denies them, she gets hurt, even though she acknowledges that he couldn't admit their relationship. He couldn't win either way. His denial also leads her to assume things that make her even more upset. I found myself a bit annoyed with how she overreacted about the whole situation. It made her come across as immature, especially considering she agrees they can't admit their relationship to anyone.
While this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I haven't read either of the previous books and had no problems following along with this one.
Overall I liked the story, but I wasn't crazy about Bronwyn, which took away from the book. This book would be for those who enjoy sports romances, especially hockey.

Coach Ash has tried to hide his feelings for Bronwyn but when she needs his support, he's there to help. And even though he tries, his true feelings for Bronwyn come out and things take off from there. But coach-player romances are also potentially scandalous, and Ash and Bronwyn deal with the press, while sorting out how they really feel.
I liked this story. It was believable and a very sweet romantic story between two athletes.
