Anastasia Allen has worked her entire life for a shot at Team USA. It looks like everything is going according to plan when she gets a full scholarship to the University of California, Maple Hills and lands a place on their competitive figure skating team. Nothing will stand in her way, not even the captain of the hockey team, Nate Hawkins.

Nate’s focus as team captain is on keeping his team on the ice. Which is tricky when a facilities mishap means they are forced to share a rink with the figure skating team—including Anastasia, who clearly can’t stand him.

But when Anastasia’s skating partner faces an uncertain future, she may have to look to Nate to take her shot. Sparks fly, but Anastasia isn’t worried…because she could never like a hockey player, right?

Okay, I seriously loved this romance. It was the best combination of sweet and sexy. Despite a rocky start to Anastasia (another great name) and Nate the wormed their way into my heart. I especially loved the lack of a third act breakup. There’s something about ice skating and hockey books that I love, despite not liking either myself.

I loved that even with there being steamy scenes they didn’t overtake the story, and I loved watching this love story develop. I hope to one day see a Henry story.

Memorable quotes:

“We’re still individuals, but we’re individuals together, and I never knew relationships could be like this.”

“Let it all out. You’re safe. I’m here.”

“Of course I know you really well, Anastasia. You’re my favorite subject.”
