Fighting for the Edge blog tour


Today I'm proud to be a part of the 'Fighting for the Edge book tour', hosted by YA Bound. You can view the rest of the tour spots by clicking on the banner above. 

Two friends. Two dreams. One night that changes everything…

Ice dancer Aubrey London scoffs at romance. She’s focused on winning a medal at the upcoming Olympics and uses that as her excuse to avoid serious relationships. But when she and longtime friend Chris Grayden are thrown together by unforeseen circumstances, Aubrey finds herself questioning everything she's ever known about love, complicating her life both on and off the ice.

Pairs skater Emily Petrov embraces romance. She and her husband Sergei still act like honeymooners two years after their wedding. As Emily’s coach, Sergei provides constant support while she prepares to challenge for gold at the Olympics. But Sergei’s support might not be enough to help Emily overcome the one challenge she never saw coming.

With the Games only weeks away, Emily and Aubrey are on the verge of realizing their dreams. But one snowy, stormy night sets in motion a series of events that will test them in ways they never imagined, giving them more to fight for than Olympic medals.

Praise for the Edge books: "Jennifer Comeaux puts you in the action, makes you smell the ice and hear the roar of the crowd during the nail-biting competitions, and she's a master at creating first love jitters in your stomach from the steamy scenes that are so hot without being explicit." - Christina Jean Michaels, author of Epiphany

Both touching and suspenseful, Fighting for the Edge is a game changer that will have fans of the series giving both the characters and the author a standing ovation once they've turned the very last page. If I could pass out medals, Jennifer would earn gold for writing my favorite romance of all time.” – Jenna at Jenna Does Books
My Review

I know it's not a good habit starting a series at the last book, but I'm not sorry for the final book in Jennifer Comeaux's Edge series (which just makes me want to go back and read the other two books). It's not like I needed to read the previous two books to be caught up on everything that was happening with this story, which is probably why I loved it so much. In Fighting for the Edge, Emily Butler plans to retire after this Olympics, making this her and her partner, Chris's, last chance for a gold medal in pairs ice skating. Coached by her husband, she is ready to conquer the world of ice skating and land her that gold medal, until something happens which threatens to derail her plans. And no, I'm not going to give away all of the twists and turns that makes up this thrilling novel, but the action and drama that unfolded on each page is what made me want to turn the page to find out what happened next.

Comeaux has a way of getting into her character's head and creating the ideal chemistry and tension that makes the characters feel alive. The building romances, plaecd in with the thrilling competitive sport of ice skating and anyone should know that nothing can run smooth. Now I just have to go back to the previous two books as I'm curious to find out what happened in Emily Butler's story prior to Fighting for the Edge. I recommend this story to anyone who is looking for an older YA/NA romance.
