Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Young adult couple in winter outerwear. Snowy mountain background & ski gear support the synopsis, which hints at a second-chance romance, or at least a story of forgiveness.
Ry-Guy, as he's called, and Bree met six years ago and a drunken misunderstanding ended things before they ever started. Then, two years ago, a critical crash took Ry out of the competition. Now, still recovering and hoping to finally get back onto skis for the first time in a few more months, his coach has called him in to help a fellow National Team member who's in a professional rut.
Bree learned some devastating news in December and was sworn to keep quiet as to not destroy everyone she's ever loved should the news be known. The shock, hurt, and betrayal of it all has really played games with her head at the worst of times and now her position on the team is in jeopardy.
I've not read any of Ms. Foster's Remingtons books prior to reading this novella and while it appears that Rush and Layla had a story already out there, it did not impact the quality of this novella. This one can and does stand on it's own quite strongly.
This is a clean romance, filled with forgiveness and second chances, healing and finding new strengths. The characters are not always perfect, but they are flawed in the most human of ways. The secondary characters are enjoyable and add just enough padding to give RACE TO LOVE a nice, full feeling. The dialogue and interaction plays out well. The plot flows very well and the content is satisfying. There were some conflicts, all were either fully resolved or were implied to be in process of resolving. Predictability was fairly low. The conclusion is good, although I would have liked to seen an epilogue touching on her parents and what happened in Colorado.
Overall, it was an extremely enjoyable and warm (despite the setting) novella.
Rating: [PG] ~ Score: 4.3 ~ Stars: 4
Six years ago, Riley “Ry” Guyette of the US Ski Team spent the night with Bree Winthrop but he had been too drunk to remember what happened. Partying had been Ry's way of rebelling against his father who wanted him to give up skiing take over the family business. All Ry wanted to do was compete and win more medals. Ry hadn't thought about Bree over the years, but now his coach wants him to work with her so she can keep her position on the team.
Bree wasn't thrilled to be working with Ry, but she needed a win in the downhill and slalom portions to prove she was worthy of staying on the team. She had been naive and star struck six years ago when she first saw Ry in the snow drunk and took him to his room. But he turned out to be a jerk and she didn't want anything to do with him after that.
When Ry starts helping Bree, he learns a lot about her including something very personal that is going on in her life. This news could be very bad for her racing career if it were to get out. Is Ry the right guy to help Bree get mentally ready for competing and will he be able to convince her that is really is a changed man?
This is a wonderfully sweet story with likable characters and a well planned plot. Bree and Ry seemed to be the perfect match. They just needed a little push to realize it. The story about Bree's mom and Coach Cunningham was a nice addition too.
"Race of Love" is a wonderful combination of professional skiing and a HEA ending that creates a novel that engages the reader throughout.
Melissa McClone took the subplots of several characters and wove them together to create a fast-paced, realistic, and piquant novel from beginning to end.
She has created two very strong characters in Ry and Bree. They have some similarities but also some very different situations and paths they have followed over the past six years. Ry has learned some very hard lessons as a result of a ski injury that could have been fatal. He has a plan and has been sticking to it in his recovery process. And so far has been doing well.
Bree has always been a great skier, but this season something is off and she will be lucky if she even makes the team. Family drama and issues have plagued her for months. With Ry's help and the scare from a major fall, things come to a head for Bree.
"Race for Love," reflects on professional skiing, personal issues, friends, family drama, supportive teammates and how life can change on a dime. It has strong characters and multiple interweaving plots. All of these combined make for a quickly-moving novel that holds the readers interest throughout.
