Book Description:

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?

My Book Review:

In Taking The Ice, the third and final book in the Ice series, the story featuring the ice skating pair of Courtney and Josh continues with more angst, drama, romance, and exhilarating ice skating.

Author Jennifer Comeaux once again calls upon her passion for competitive ice skating to weave an emotionally dramatic tale of friendship, love, and competitive dreams that will steal your breath away. If you are a fan of ice skating and all the drama that goes on behind the scenes, then this new series is a must read. If you are a hopeless romantic who loves the dramatic challenges and trials and tribulations that Courtney and Josh will face as they try to balance achieving their Olympic ice skating dreams while they take their love relationship to the next level, then you are in for a treat with this sweet romantic story.

Author Jennifer Comeaux pulls out all the stops and takes the reader on one final exhilarating and emotional roller coaster ride as Courtney & Josh's love story continues to unfold with a heartwarming and sigh worthy climatic conclusion. There are not enough words to express how much I loved following Courtney and Josh's journey, I was captivated from the beginning and left completely satisfied at the conclusion. There is just something so exciting about reading a romance story that has a wonderful mixture of romance and the sport of competitive ice skating, it simply draws you in and leaves you breathless.

With an intriguing cast of recurring and new characters; engaging dialogue and dramatic interactions; a richly detailed description of the settings and world of Olympic competitive ice skating; and a riveting storyline full of drama, angst, suspense and romance; Taking The Ice is an amazing lighthearted romantic story that will leave you believing in the power of love, sighing and smiling, and wishing that the exciting Ice series would continue (sigh).
