Ice dancer Aubrey London scoffs at romance. She’s focused on winning a medal at the upcoming Olympics and uses that as her excuse to avoid serious relationships. But when she and longtime friend Chris Grayden are thrown together by unforeseen circumstances, Aubrey finds herself questioning everything she’s ever known about love, complicating her life both on and off the ice.
Pairs skater Emily Petrov embraces romance. She and her husband Sergei still act like honeymooners two years after their wedding. As Emily’s coach, Sergei provides constant support while she prepares to challenge for gold at the Olympics. But Sergei’s support might not be enough to help Emily overcome the one challenge she never saw coming.
With the Games only weeks away, Emily and Aubrey are on the verge of realizing their dreams. But one snowy, stormy night sets in motion a series of events that will test them in ways they never imagined, giving them more to fight for than Olympic medals.
My Book Review:
In the final book of the Edge series, Fighting For The Edge, the reader catches up with what has been going on with Emily, Sergei, Chris and Aubrey. Emily and Sergei have been married for over two years and still act like honeymooners, while Chris and Aubrey lament about their single / casual relationships statuses. All of them are practicing for the upcoming Grand Prix Final competition in Tokyo and the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy.
While the first two books in the series mainly featured the development of Emily and Sergei's relationship, in the third book the feature is extended to include Chris and Aubrey's story, which made me so excited to read. I think author Jennifer Comeaux brings the series full circle to close on a high note with Emily, Chris and Aubrey going for their dreams of Olympic gold while dealing with personal issues and balancing love relationships.
Author Jennifer Comeaux weaves an emotionally dramatic tale that focuses more on the off-ice life issues and relationship challenges coupled with the anticipation and anxiety of the upcoming Olympics for Emily, Sergei, Chris and Audrey, that captivates the reader and keeps them spellbound as they turn the pages. With an intriguing cast of recurring and new characters; engaging dialogue and interactions; a richly detailed description of the setting; and a riveting storyline full of drama, suspense and romance; Fighting For The Edge will leave you believing that the power of love can overcome any challenge!
I love, love, love the Edge series and the author did not leave me disappointed with a wonderfully dramatic and satisfying conclusion that made me sigh and smile from ear to ear. If you are a fan of ice skating and all the drama that goes on behind the scenes then this series is a must read. If you are a hopeless romantic who loves the dramatic challenges and trials and tribulations that come with life issues and love relationships, then you're in luck, because the author takes the reader on a final exhilarating and emotional roller coaster ride as they follow the unfolding of these lovable characters stories one last time. I hate that this series has to end, but it was an incredible ride, kudos to author Jennifer Comeaux!
