Blog Tour ~ Fighting For the Edge by Jennifer Comeaux

fighting for the Edge tour

Fighting for the Edge Cover
Fighting for the Edge 

Two friends. Two dreams. One night that changes everything… 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.

Tifferz Take~
Fighting for the Edge captured my attention from the get go. We get to see how things are with Em and Sergei married. The balancing of Coach/ husband relationship. Ms. Comeaux sure does pack a punch with the unexpected, I never saw some of the curve balls coming. They were a fabulous surprise. I also like that we see Chris Em's partner and Aubrey friendship grow! We get double the romance! I loved the story and the character development. Em makes some difficult choices. Aubrey does as well. Both learn from them! A great story! I have to say my favorite part is when Em's mom goes through her nightstand draw. My goodness can we say awkward and brilliant. I was laughing so hard! I look forward to more from Jennifer Comeaux. I kind hope she writes a story of Aubrey and Chris. I want another HEA! Hint Hint Ms Comeaux if you read this :)

Just FYI~ This does not contain any swearing or sexual situations.

Chelz Review~
Jennifer Comeaux gave us a great skating story filled with family, love, heartache and challenges.  I loved reading this story.   I have always enjoyed watching ice skating, and this story was wonderfully written.  The fact that this was not just a love story about Aubrey and Chris or just a story about Emily's quest to be an Olympian makes it a very enjoyable read.  I thought all the challenges in the story were well thought out and applicable to the storyline.  This is a longer story, which I read on a long drive to another state, and was able to enjoy passing the time.  In life we have to make choices and place our priorities in the order we want them to be, not the order others think they should be.  Sometimes we have to do what is best for us and what we feel is right in our heart.   This story is great to touch on this part of life.  Fighting for the Edge doesn't  need to fight its way to the top of the reading list, that is where it should start.
