Life on the Edge by Jennifer Comeaux

Nineteen-year-old Emily is new to pairs skating, but she and her partner Chris have a big dream–to be the first American team to win Olympic gold. Their young coach Sergei, who left Russia after a mysterious end to his skating career, believes they can break through and make history.

Emily and Chris are on track to be top contenders at the 2002 Winter Games. But when forbidden feelings spark between Emily and Sergei, broken trust and an unexpected enemy threaten to derail Emily's dreams of gold.

Tifferz Take-
I enjoy watching ice skating movies and the Olympics. Life on the Edge is a compelling novel that takes you into the lives of a pairs figure skating and we get an insider knowledge of the highs and lows of the sport. Emily and Sergei have some choices to make on the relationship the have and where they want it to go. It was fun to see this unfold. Sergei has some secrets that come back to haunt him. Emily has a lot to take in and can she forgive Sergei? I like the close relationship Emily shares with her family. But, not family is perfect and I found Emily's stubbornness a important key to her success in her personal and professional life. I think that Ms. Comeaux did an extraordinary job of describing the skating performances. I felt like I was at the rink watching it happen. Life on the Edge is a fun modern day romance with a hit of mystery and a really creepy bad guy. This is a clean read no sex or bad language. I am still thinking about this story several days later. I will be on the lookout for more from Ms. Comeaux. Enjoy!
