Courtney and Josh are in love and excited to finally compete as skating partners. When they take the ice for their first competition, they want to show everyone, especially Josh's family, they are the perfect pair. But ice is slippery, and one misstep puts all their dreams in jeopardy. Now they must show each other both their love and their partnership are strong enough to survive.


NA ReviewMy ThoughtsLosing the Ice is the second book in the New Adult Ice Series. The Ice series is a contemporary romance series centering around ice skating pairs. You should read the first book, Crossing the Ice, before you read Losing the Ice as they both feature the same couple. Courtney and Josh. Crossing the Ice was one of my favorite books of 2014 so I feel confidant recommending it to fans of contemporary romance and ice skating everywhere. I love Jennifer Comeaux’s writing. If you remember the first book, Courtney and Josh each had a different pairs skater so they never really got to skate with one another much.

In Losing the Ice they are finally paired up together and I was super excited to see them skating together. And don’t worry the skating is every bit as vivid and great as it was in the first book. But the tone of Losing the Ice was much more somber than Crossing the Ice. Something bad happens with Josh pretty early on in the book and I was completely devastated. The remainder of the book centers around this one event and its’ consequences. I am really hoping that there is another book in the series and that the next one is a little more happy go lucky. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed the way everything panned out in this one, but it felt kind of on the shorter end and kind of sad a lot of the time. And well, I love Courtney and Josh so much that I just want the best for them.

I also hope in the next book someone just slaps Josh’s mom into behaving properly. That lady really bugs me. Let’s focus on the positive things in Losing the Ice. The writing is great, the characters have still completely stolen my heart, and I even grew to like someone that I didn’t in the first book, which is always exciting for me. I also admired how solid Courtney and Josh seemed with each other. Their relationship is great, and they are both so supportive. It is admirable. Losing the Ice is a good continuation of the Ice series. I am ready for the next book please!

    Haven’t read book 1 in this series, although it could be interesting. Do you think the story will be as enjoyable to someone that hasn’t experienced/doesn’t know much about skating? You say that it’s very vivid in the book. Does it throw in skate terminology that you’d have to look up to understand what’s going on? Just curious ๐Ÿ™‚

      That is the awesome part about this series. You really don’t need to know much about skating. The first book does such a good job of explaining everything that you will feel like a pro while reading.
