Release date: August 17th 2015
Synopsis via Goodreads:
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?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jennifer Comeaux is a tax accountant by day, writer by night. There aren’t any ice rinks near her home in south Louisiana, but she’s a die-hard figure skating fan and loves to write stories of romance set in the world of competitive skating. One of her favorite pastimes is traveling to competitions, where she can experience all the glitz and drama that inspire her writing.
Josh and Courtney we back on the ice, competing at Nationals and hopefully a spot of the olympic team as well. If you've read the previous books in this series, you know that Josh and Court have had their share of ups and downs as a skating pair. This is their final chance to skate together in the Olympics. Now in their mid-twenties, they are looking to shift their focus from competitive skating to college and career after this season.
As with all of Jennifer Comauex's books, I loved Taking the Ice. It was a fun, quick read that put a smile on my face and feeling happy inside. I enjoyed watching Josh and Court's relationship develop on and off the ice. They know when to be serious, and hey know when to relax and have fun. It's never a simple path for them where everything goes just right. Just as in real life, there are setbacks and frustrations. Mistakes are made, but they get back up and try again.
Taking the Ice is a great finale to Josh and Courtney's competitive skating story. I hope there's more to come as their adventure continues off the ice.
