{Review+Giveaway} Gold Rush by Jennifer Comeaux @LadyWave4

{Review+Giveaway} Gold Rush by Jennifer Comeaux @LadyWave4

Gold Rush is a standalone young adult ice skating romance set in the same world as Jennifer’s Edge series and Ice series. I have read, and the loved the entire Ice series, which is Josh and Courtney’s story. I still have not read the edge series, which is the story of Liza’s dad, but I am so going to. I loved the Ice series to pieces, and Gold Rush gave me all the same great feels. I love the feel good romance that Jennifer Comeaux is so excellent at delivering. This was a great book for new and old fans of Jennifer’s work. Gold Rush is Liza’s story, a two time world champion ice skater. Liza has been so focused on skating her whole life that she has missed out on all the boy, and dating, aspects of growing up. In fact, she has never even been on a date at 19, much less anything else with a guy. And then along comes Braden. I loved Liza and Braden from… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Taking the Ice by Jennifer Comeaux @LadyWave4

{Review+Giveaway} Taking the Ice by Jennifer Comeaux @LadyWave4

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… Read more »

{Review+Giveaway} Losing the Ice by Jennifer Comeaux @LadyWave4

Losing 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… Read more »

{Review} The Boy Next Door by Katie Van Ark @SwoonReads @kvanark

The Boy Next Door is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading from the new crowd-sourced Macmillan imprint, Swoon Reads. I absolutely love the idea behind Swoon Reads. It is a community that anyone can join online for free, writers can upload their manuscripts and readers can read them and vote on their favorites and leave feedback. It’s great because teens and readers in the Swoon Reads Community are telling the writers and publishers what they like and what they don’t, and they are helping to pick the next books that are going to be published. It is such a great concept. The Boy Next Door is an ice skating romance, that reminded me of Jennifer Comeaux’s Crossing the Ice– which I absolutely loved. So I was super excited to dive right into another pairs figure skating romance. And The Boy Next Door was a great one! There were some skating struggles, but there weren’t as many on ice problems as there were in Crossing the Ice,… Read more »
