Blog Tour w/Review - Gold Rush


Gold Rush
Jennifer Comeaux
Publication date: January 9th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult

Liza Petrov’s entire life has been about skating and winning her sport’s top prize – Olympic gold. She’s stayed sheltered inside her bubble, not daring to stray from her destined path.
Until she meets Braden Patrick.
He makes her heart flutter with possibility, and for the first time she gets a taste of a normal teenage life. She longs to have both the boy and the gold, but stepping outside her bubble comes with a price. As Liza begins to question both her future and her past, can she stay focused on the present and realize her ultimate dream?
 
 
 
 
 

Braden & Liza meet at the concession stand over her siblings. The attraction is instant and mutual. Only this is going to be the busiest year of her life. Who has time for love?

Liza has never had a date, a kiss, a boyfriend. Rights of passage have been sacrificed for Olympic Gold. Is it worth it? Maybe this year she can find out how to make them both work out.

An amazing story with feels and emotions. I love, love, loved the skating and technical parts. This is one author I can count on to make it real. Did I mention there are feels? This book has everything for everyone, and a little bit more.

Quick read
Candy for Christmas: Hockey Player vs Ice Skater - Novalee Swan

Candy for Christmas is my first read by Novalee Swan.  This quick read is a fun little holiday romance.  Candy and Nolan's story is a perfect choice for those with limited time for reading.  Candy for Christmas is a well written book with drama, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Novalee Swan in the future.  Candy for Christmas is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Skater Boy (X-Treme Boys Series Book 1) By Kay Manis Free!
Skater Boy - Kay Manis

When 25 year old Hindley Hagen is offered a new position at her prestigious Austin law firm, she’s ready for the new challenge, but completely unprepared for the familiar blue eyes staring back at her across the boardroom table. Keeping all his secrets is now her new profession, but if he discovers hers, she may lose everything. 

Pro skateboarder Rory Gregor knows what it’s like to fall from grace in a sport he once dominated. After years of bad decisions and one-night-stands, he’s working hard to make a comeback. Hiring a new attorney may be what his team thinks he needs to rebuild his career, but what if it costs him his heart? Just when he’s poised for success, demons from his past threaten to ruin his chance for gold and a new love. 

In a sport where trust means everything, this time, it may not be enough.

My Skater Boy: X-Treme Boys Series Book 2 (Volume 2)
Mt. Whitney - Wilderness Press Mt. Whitney - Wilderness Press
The road to true love is never smooth and Rory and Hindley’s relationship takes some pretty hard beatings in this instalment of the X-Treme Boys series. Carrying on from where book #1 left us Hindley’s insecurities and lack of trust issues are not the only obstacles in this couples way, Rory has just as many hang-ups of his own driving a wedge between the pair. The tension really begins to build when Hindley learns of some of Rory’s demons and decides the only way to move forward is to come clean about her own past and prove to him that she too is not perfect.

Kay Manis touches on some very difficult subjects, from child abuse to rape and even dips a toe in the world of self-harming. I thought these scenes were written well and I was glad she took the time to include contacts for anyone who maybe affected by any of the areas she covered in the back of the book.

All that said, this is not a dark novel, I laughed out loud on more than one occasion and had a goofy grin on my face through much of the story. Some of the terminology used tickled me pink, especially in the bedroom scenes, which made a nice change from the crass and crude words included in so many novels just lately.

My Skater Boy is a romance with lots of drama and I will be pitching it to all my friends, everyone needs this kind of book in their lives! Rory and Hindley’s Journey may be ‘X Treme’ but I’ve enjoyed being lost in their world for the past few days and am going to miss them. I now eagerly await Dana and Peter’s story in the next book in the series Moto Boy coming in January 2014.
