Olympic rings and an engagement ring.
Courtney Carlton is ready for both.
She and her boyfriend Josh have skated together and dated for four years, and they’ve reached a critical point in their partnership both on and off the ice. With the Winter Games coming up and their career nearing an end, they are fighting to win a spot on the Olympic team, something Courtney has dreamed of since she was ten years old. She also has another wish she hopes comes true soon. She’s waiting for a marriage proposal from Josh that she expected to happen by now. Will she realize either dream or will her heart be broken from disappointment?
Taking the Ice is the third and final 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, and the second Losing the Ice, before reading Taking the Ice as they all 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. In Losing the Ice Courtney and Josh were finally paired up together and I was super excited to see them skating together, and I was even more excited to read Taking the Ice, because not only were they still skating together but this time they were going for Nationals and maybe the Olympics. Talk about high pressure.
Losing the Ice was much more somber than Crossing the Ice. So I was ready for happier times with my favorite couple. And while Taking the Ice was not without its’ share of bumps in the road, I thought the overall tone of this book was light and happy. And I loved that. What I really also love about this series is that you can’t always expect the happy you know they are going to win ending with Jennifer. Because I knew that from her first two books, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading. Sometimes you read books and while it might not always be going the main characters way, you just know that in the end they are going to come out victorious. While that is nice, and I certainly enjoy the warm fuuzzies it makes me feel, the air of the uncertain, especially in sports books, makes read so much more exciting. And I am so not telling you what happens with their skating. You will just have to read the story to find out.
I will say this about Taking the Ice. Courtney and Josh are as great together as ever. I just love their relationship and how solid they seem as a couple. The ice skating is as thrilling as ever, and the story and series wrapped up perfectly. I am so happy with the ending and with their overall journey. This has to be my very favorite ice skating series that I have ever read. Read the Ice series, if you haven’t already. Read it now!
