Fighting for the Edge by Jennifer Comeaux Blog Tour & Book Review
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.
Book three in the Edge Series this story shows not only Emily's POV but also her best friend Aubrey's. It was a pleasant difference from the previous two novels and gave me such insight into the characters. Emily and Aubrey's stories are compelling and took me into situations I couldn't imagine being in. Comeaux has an uncanny ability to write a compelling story that as I reader I could put down! Throughout the entire story I was engaged and felt like I knew each character. Their emotions, their reactions, their stories....they all came to life through the words of this book! I am still reliving this story in my mind and I probably will for the next week or so! I have to ask myself. "Where has this series been hiding?" If you haven't had a chance to read the Edge Series, I highly recommend picking it up! You will skate right through it!
You can pick up your own copy of Fighting for the Edge via Amazon or Astraea Press.
I received a copy of this book for free and this is my honest review.
