To me this story could have been written in two different ways – from the perspective of Andy (like it was) or it could have been told as Hayden Grace’s story, which is credit to how well the author developed her character. Andy’s daughter had a lot about her. She was very talented and passionate about snowboarding but she was very realistic for her young age too since it was acknowledged there was room for improvement in her ability and more importantly, she needed that bit of confidence to really push herself to compete to the best of her ability. Hayden Grace misses her dad and wants to know that he would be proud of her snowboarding performance but sometimes she struggles because he’s no longer around to tell her that.Read more ›
Andrea (Andy) Parker's husband, Stefan, was killed in action six years ago and raising their daughter on her own has been anything but easy. Hayden Grace is now fifteen and an avid snowboarder, who is hoping to win her first national competition, but since the death of her father something seems to be holding her back. An encouraging letter, written before Stefan's death, and some of his military patches hidden inside her jacket seem to give her the confidence she needs to pull off a qualifying run. This big win opens a whole new world to the Parker ladies, changing life as they know it forever.
Andy, who's absolutely NOT looking for a relationship after her last dating fiasco and is more focused on helping Hayden Grace further her snowboarding career, is swept away by a chance meeting with a handsome snowboarder, who just happens to be world famous. She could get lost in his amazing blue eyes and the way he makes her feel is something she hasn't experienced since Stefan. But, what will Hayden Grace think of her mom's budding relationship? Is Paul too good to be true?
On The Edge is a wonderful story with intriguing characters that one can't help becoming attached to. The love that Andy and Hayden Grace carry for Stefan is powerful and his presence among the stars gets them through many tough times. When Paul enters their lives, he brings a certain feeling of comfort and familiarity that both Andy and Hayden Grace are drawn to. Andy and Paul's romance made me smile and warmed my heart. Paul's ability to include Hayden Grace made me like him even more. On The Edge is a well-crafted solid read that I hoped wouldn't end.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
I couldn't help but adore Hayden Grace and Andy...they had such a cute relationship throughout the book. Of course they had their mother daughter spats but overall they had a pretty inspiring relationship.
The romance in the book is pretty perfect- the relationship between Paul and Andy starts out as part of her job and quickly evolves into a friendship that is entertaining to watch. Their romance blossoms through chance meetings at snowboarding events that her daughter is apart of, and he often judges. You can't help but love Paul when he's with Andy, he's fun, thoughtful and quite the charmer.
T.S. Krupa has a way with words once again in On The Edge; every sentence flows so perfectly into the next that you can't stop yourself from reading the next line, and then the next line.
Kudos are in order for this author as well... notice at the front of the book - there is NO PUBLISHER listed. This appears to be a grassroots operation for this author to publish her own book. That takes a lot of gumption and courage, in my opinion.
Overall, great read. A great 2nd book by a 1st time author who has many more stories to tell I'm sure.
