Crossing The Ice by Jennifer Comeaux ~ Review

Source:  I was given the audiobook in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Falling hard never felt so good.

Pair skaters Courtney and Mark have one shot left at their Olympic dream. They vow not to let anything get in their way, especially not Josh and Stephanie, the wealthy and talented brother and sister team.

The heart doesn’t always listen to reason, though…

The more time Courtney spends with sweet, shy Josh, the harder she falls for him. But they are on opposite sides of the competition, and their futures are headed in opposite directions. Will their friendship blossom into more or are their paths too different to cross?


Since I listened to this one, I'll start with the narrator.  Emily Stokes is the narrator.  I thought the narration was fine.  Some of her voices seemed dramatic but there is was nothing that had me wanting to stop listening.

This book is super sweet.  Courtney and Josh may be in their early twenties but they have the feel of much younger characters.  I think the reason for this is the their skating careers.  It's stopped them from participating in a lot of things that average young adults would experience.  This makes this the book feel more YA than NA.  I still enjoyed it.

Josh has been crushing on Cort ever since he met her.  Their seven minutes of heaven wasn't even close so Cortney didn't think Josh liked her.  He became her competition on the ice.  She didn't pay attention after that.  But when Josh and his sister come to train with Cortney and Mark, she notices alright.  She notices that his sister Steph is a royal B.  She notices that Josh is shy and sweet.  Adorable actually.  She just can't resist him even though she tries.

I really enjoyed how they took things slow and really fell in love before things got serious.  Lots of romance combined with lots of patience on Josh's part to make this one sweet and yummy.  And kisses?  Yes, lots and lots of kisses.  I so love kisses.

I think this one would appeal to those who really enjoy sweet YA books.  Though, it's not YA, it reads that way.
