When you're at the top, there's nowhere to go but down.
Two talented skaters. Two bright futures. Two shining stars. One ruined by a career-ending scandal and another by a father's ruthless ambition.
Marina Sanders was the darling of the winter games, winning a bronze in figure skating one week after losing both parents in a car accident. Four years later, she was the most hated woman in America.
Drew Delacorte was the future of the Sockeyes hockey team, crowned the best young player in the league and heir-apparent to the hockey throne once occupied by his father. Only Drew doesn't want that throne. Despite being in the prime of his career, he's considering hanging up his skates.
Together they're fire and ice, and when things get that hot, they melt. Can these two broken souls find comfort and courage in each other's arms or will they find only pain and regret?
What happens when an ex-figure skating princess and a future hockey hall of famer meet? You can feel the heat through the screen/pages while you read.
Marina Sanders had won an Olympic bronze medal in figure skating just a short time after her parents died in a car accident. At the next winter games all of that fan love came crashing down on her when some events happened causing not just her but other skaters from missing the podium. She ran to Europe for awhile and had hoped it would all be behind her when she accepted a temporary contract with the Seattle Sockeyes hockey team. She would be working with each player as a skating coach in an attempt to gain an edge while the team was hoping to not only make it but win the Stanley Cup.
Drew Delacorte didn't love hockey anymore, in fact he almost hated it. He wanted to find that love again, the fun of playing, the excitement of passing and the thrill of scoring a goal, those things were gone now. The pressure of his father (former NHL player) being verbally abusive in his attempt to push Drew to play better and the guilt of his brother dying while saving him had made him lose it all. One night he went to the rink to skate and was at first upset Marina was there at all. But by the end of the night he was glad she had been because she brought a little bit of light back into his game.
Little did either of them realize how much of a connection they had when they were together both on and off the ice. Marina would help Drew find the hockey passion again and stand up to his father while Drew would help Marina find herself and know she could fall in love. The problem was they couldn't let Drew's parents find out, let alone the rest of the players and staff. For if they did as quick as the flame between them ignited, it could easily be snuffed.
Another game winner for Jami Davenport with this book. Her ability to take basic words and put them into a book that you do not want to put down is almost as magically as the book itself. This is a book that you will not be disappointed in at all.
The Right Stuff!
Wow what a book. I have read all of this authors sports Romance books and this is absolutely my favorite. It has the right amount of actions, drama and romance. The characters are superb. I sense spin off series from this book. If I remember right the PI business was mentioned previously. Jami has an incredible skill when it comes to intertwining characters of different backgrounds and different phases in life. The characters Drew and Marina are beautiful characters looking for a direction in which to follow. Jami’s style of writing makes you see and feel these characters.
Marina and Drew were truly like fire and ice. Going from one extreme to the next while they tried avoid the inevitable. The story was full of emotion, passion, self-discovery, setting boundaries, and family. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow and change as well as watching them both find their own confidence in their decisions. A great addition to the series!
