Falling in love with your competition has never been so adorable.

I liked Courtney. She's the level headed girl next door. She's a girl you'd want to be best friends with. She's kind, considerate, dedicated. Jennifer did a good job of putting me into her head, her drive to skate and win and her tumultuous feelings for Josh. I enjoyed her evolution over the story as she faces personal and professional roadblocks, she reacts in a very human way but eventually in a gracious manner.

I loved Josh. Sweet, charming, sensitive, talented Josh. He's a great guy on his own but he's also a great guy for Courtney. I felt bad for him, along with pressure of skating he's also under pressure from his family - a family that doesn't think Courtney is good enough for him - as well as the life they have planned for Josh after his skating career is over.

The romance is sweet and swoony, angsty and adorable. There are so many things standing in their way but the attraction and connection between them can't be denied. I was rooting for them the whole time. And the skating. Jennifer shows the excitement and competition as we follow them from training and competitions all the way to the Olympics.

The ending was perfect and it has me very excited to read/listen to the next book in the Ice series, I can't wait to see what happens next.

As to the narration I could imagine Emily Stokes as Courtney; she did a good job of conveying Courtney's emotions, excitement and devastation. There were a few hiccups in the recording that took me away from the storyline but hopefully that can be edited.
