A professional snowboarder. A novice skier. An inevitable collision.
Anders Vik is a force on the slopes and he knows it. World number one. Countless endorsement deals. Looks to match. When a vicious scandal rocks his world everything he’s worked so hard for is threatened. Banished by his coach to a local ski resort, he spends his days losing himself boarding and in numerous women. But when she crashes into his world he’s not sure which will change his life more. The wait for his name to be cleared, or her.
College senior Elena Espinosa plays by the rules. Work hard. Study harder. Rely on no one but herself. Coerced by her best friends, she reluctantly tags along on the final trip during winter break. For Elena, novice skier is an understatement. She never dreamed a lesson on the bunny slope would send her hurtling towards her destiny. Nor did she imagine it would come in the form of a blue-eyed Nordic God.
She isn’t looking for love. He doesn’t do commitment. But what burns between them is so strong it threatens to melt the polar ice caps. What happens when two different worlds collide?
I received a ARC in exchange for a honest review.
I was actually really surprised how much I fell in love with the story and characters as when I first started reading I didn't know what to expect. I love a good sports romance book but this sport was a new one for me so I was really intrigued with it before I even read it.
This is Anders and Elena's story who are complete opposites. They first meet when Elena crashes into Anders and their relationship develops from then, although its not all smooth sailing (or snowboarding I should say). The chemistry between these two was enough to melt all the snow, and the story was enough to grip you throughout.
A book full of drama, twists and turns, and a rollercoaster of a ride of emotions with characters you'll fall in love with. Great read.
