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?
Liza is at the height of her game in the world of figure skating. Boasted to be one of top skaters at the winter Olympics, if not the top one, she needs to stay focused if she wants to bring home the gold. But when she meets Braden one afternoon at a baseball game, he turns her world upside down and inside out. For the first time in forever she daydreams about a kindhearted college boy and her first kiss. She would love to be a normal teenage girl and do the things they do. No worries, no practices, no meddlesome parents. But no worries, means no gold. Liza will have to sacrifice much to reach her dreams…or will she? Can she let this boy into her world and still obtain the gold?
Wow!! Such an amazing book. I finished this a few days ago and I am still…just wow! Every book that I have read from Comeaux has made me experience all the feels. This one, probably more so. I once again remembered what it felt like to go on that first date and how it felt to fall in love for the first time. Comeaux makes her stories come alive with her words and the emotions that jump right off the pages before you. It really is a magical moment to read her books. And this one was just so darn magical. So beautifully told. So absolutely amazing in all its aspects!
I need to gush on Braden for a second. He is one of those guys that stay with you long after the book is done. In a lot of ways, he is very similar to Liza’s dad in that regard. Sergei was one of those that I have never forgotten and I love him still to this day. He oozed romance!! I can see the same in Braden and would love if he was given more time in future books. (Hint, cough, wink!)
Sweet romance and a flawless storyline that kept my attention the entire time…GOLD RUSH is a must read. 5 Beautifully Written Stars!
