Series: Ice #1
Genres: Young Adult
Falling hard never felt so good.
Pair skaters Courtney and Mark have one shot left at their Olympic dream. They vow not to let anything get in their way, especially not Josh and Stephanie, the wealthy and talented brother and sister team.
The heart doesn’t always listen to reason, though…
The more time Courtney spends with sweet, shy Josh, the harder she falls for him. But they are on opposite sides of the competition, and their futures are headed in opposite directions. Will their friendship blossom into more or are their paths too different to cross?

Crossing the Ice is an adorable story! This is a young adult appropriate book that I am excited to share with some of my students. There is the sweet, new romance aspect but they don’t go further than kissing. Josh is an amazing book boyfriend. He is athletic, talented, and so stinking sweet. Courtney is a likable character. Sometimes teenagers in books (especially girls) can be super annoying, but Court isn’t one of them. She is driven and hard working. She is a bit naive but its not annoying and it doesn’t make her seem dumb. I thought that Jennifer Comeaux did a GREAT job with the competition at nationals and the Olympics. It was very realistic and believable which I was worried it wouldn’t be. She has managed to not fall into the super sappy YA trap and its very refreshing!
I love ice skating so Crossing the Ice appealed to right away. Jennifer Comeaux kept me reading beyond just the ice skating interest. I will certainly continue with this series. Bonus? All the books are a part of KU!
