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.Read more ›
It’s 2010. Bree Winthrop, an eighteen year old up and comer in the skiing world, has had a crush on the Olympic medal winning Riley “Ry” Guyette since she first saw him. But Ry, who is also young, was wild, using alcohol and women to rebel against expectations his father has. Their one interaction didn’t go well, and they haven’t spoken since.
Four years later, Ry suffers a horrible skiing accident. Even though the accident will keep him from the sport he loves for two more years while recuperating, it actually saved his life. It made him re-evaluate his ways and clean himself up. Now his focus is on his health and recuperation, and making it back on to the slopes in time for the 2018 Olympics.
Two years later, 2016, Bree’s life is falling apart. She has discovered something about herself that her mother kept secret her entire life. Now Bree, forced to also keep the secret, has lost her focus on the slopes and is in jeopardy of losing her spot on the ski team. The coaches feel that the one person that might understand whatever she is going through is Ry. So they ask him to spend some time with her, to try to help her to deal with whatever is bothering her, and to get her focus back.
Spending time with Bree is the last thing Ry wants to do. They haven’t spoken in six years. All Ry wants to focus on is getting back in to skis. He’s so close. He’s in better shape than he’s ever been.
At first, things are awkward between the two of them but Ry has a way about him. This isn’t the same Ry Bree remembers. Maybe she can trust him. Maybe he really can help her.Read more ›
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.
