I was sent this audiobook to review for a blog tour. I was drawn in by the cover, and actually seen this in an earlier blog promotion and was interested in finding out what it was about. So, when I was given the chance for review it, I jumped on it.
I feel the writing was a little choppy at times, which made the audiobook choppy. You could also hear the narrator move around (or papers moving) in the background. It was a little distracting. Otherwise, I enjoyed the narrator.
You will love this if you are a fan of figure skating. There is lots of skating scenes and information about moves being completed. I actually enjoyed learning more about skating and seeing the stress and struggles Liza was facing during her track to the gold.
This is not your typical romance where the characters get together easily or right away. This deals more with Liza finding herself as an Olympic athlete and a normal adult (college aged). She has never really loved anyone, and is dealing with her feelings for Braden while juggling her crazy skating schedule. I liked how Braden and Liza were friends and built on their relationship. The romance was cute and sweet.
I actually happy cried in this as you will find yourself routing for Liza.
Overall, I recommend this if you are looking for a quick and fun read.
