I'm so happy I was able to be a part of blog tour. So I know you're wondering why this is up today and not on the 4th, well...I recieved this a bit late and I was trying to read it as fast as I could. I feel so bad, because I wanted this to go up on the day of.  But I really enjoyed this book and still wanted to let you guys know so you can go and read it.


In this second-chance romance, a former top men's figure skating champion is willing to risk everything for a comeback--except a new start with his long lost love.

An unexpected phone call from the man who broke her heart offers Amy Shepherd an opportunity to return to the work she loves, training elite figure skaters. Except it’s just one figure skater: Him. Can she finally forgive and forget?

Figure skater Mikhail “Misha” Zaikov once had it all: medals, money and the adoration of millions. But a devastating injury put an end to his career and his romance, leaving him with nothing but regret over what could have been. His last chance to re-join the world’s top skaters is now. And there’s only one person who can help him: Her.

On Russia’s unyielding ice, Misha must reclaim what he's lost while facing off against a talented young rival and risking further injury. But Amy soon discovers Misha's much bigger challenges lurk off the ice. And she's determined to keep Misha whole and healthy, even if doing so ends his shot at the gold.

My Thoughts

The Why:

 Second chance love going back on the ice. Well-written that flowed and let us see to experience in Russia. Every time I cam back to it, I couldn't get back into, because it started a bit slow.


Amy:When her old ex boyfriend, Misha calls her in the middle of the night about his injury, she's shocked, but it brings her back to a world she loves-ice skating. Misha wants her to her come with him to Russia. She knows that Misha is determined to get back on the ice. No matter what. I like the progression of them getting to know each other again and she didn't make it easy for him.

Misha: He used to be the top national winner in Russia, but after he injured himself he doesn't know what to do. Ice skating has been his life a d he doesn't know what to do, especially since all he's left with is a back injury and losing the girl he loved. He wants so badly to be on the ice and try to beat his 'new' and younger replacement. But will he risk further injuring his self and not being able to walk. He is very passionate a s stubborn in going with what he wants. He has to struggle throughout the book in wanting to gamble with his love or lose Amy again.

Final Thoughts:

 I'm interested in reading the first two in the series and to see where they started.
