Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This story really melted my heart! It was such a delightful read that held my attention from the beginning paragraph, until the last word.

This book might not have the steamy romance scenes that you get with the adult romance books, but the sweet romance storyline in this book I think tops any steamy romance book.  I think the author did a stand up job detailing the “feels” the characters had about each other and different situations in the book. The love story that takes place in the book was written incredibly well. As a reader, I felt the emotions the characters were feeling, I had anxiety during certain scenes, and I carried a smile on my face during numerous other scenes.

Since I was a little girl, I remember watching the skating during the Olympics.  I am always astounded watching the skaters do jumps and moves while on the ice. I felt like I was watching the Olympics myself as a little girl while reading the book. The author really detailed the scenes very well and described them incredibly well. I think it really helped make parts of the story more exciting and really made you want to keep reading the story. It would have been easy to close my eyes and visualize exactly what was going on during any part of the story.

I really am sad that the book had to end. While the story line was written well and any good story must end, I really didn’t want it to. I could have read a lot longer about these characters. Would I recommend this book to you? Absolutely. You’re missing out on a truly incredible story if you don’t read this.
