Book review by HelenWith the winter Olympics just around the corner, this seemed like a great book to pick up, and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I loved the setting and the characters from both stories. They are fast-paced, filled with emotion, all that goes with aiming for a gold medal and the personal feelings that can add a lot more stress.

Fighting Their Attraction
This is the story of Australian snowboarder, Brady Thompson and Canadian figure skater, Arielle Baldwin, and how they got to their HEA. It’s a rocky journey for them. Brady has a lot of issues that need to be sorted out. He is known as a bad boy, and Arielle is a caring, loving woman. She is often treated like a very young girl at times, but after their first meeting, the spark and sensual pull cannot be denied. Arielle decides that the bad boy, Brady is who she wants. This story will have you turning the pages and smiling when Arielle gets her guy.

Man of Ice
Is Russian figure skater Bohdan Dovzhenko a man of ice or is that his way of keeping feelings under tight control? Bohdan has been through a lot in his life and is a champion figure skater. He is now paired up with the beautiful, caring and friendly Australian, Maybelle Li. They are out to win a medal, but he must keep his distance emotionally from her. For Maybelle, her ex-partner Brady is also there, and she is trying hard to help him, but what about herself? As she feels her feelings growing for Bohdan, can she get him to open up, is there a future for them as a couple not just as a team?

I do recommend this book to all lovers of winter sports. These stories have ticked the boxes for beautiful romances that will pull the reader in and open up the world of the Olympics. The characters are real and very likable in their journeys to bliss. They are sensual, heart-warming and emotional, and are sure to leave you smiling.

  1. I really enjoy stories with sport in them and The Olympics are so very special

    have Fun


    1. I don't read many stories with sports in them but this sounded good. Might pick it up and add to my TBR.

  2. Sounds good! I read one with the winter olympics recently and a figure skater. Not something you see often but I liked it and would be on board for reading more like these :)

    1. I've never read any Olympics stories. The closest I've come is an ice hockey romance and that's not very close at all. :-D

  3. I can't say I have ever read one that took place during the olympics

    1. I haven't either. This one sounds good though.
