When Crossing the Ice ended, I literally squealed to find out that we would be able to continue to follow the love story and partnership of Courtney and Josh. Crossing the Ice really caught my attention, so I was really excited to see what Losing the Ice had in store for me.
Courtney and Josh are in love and excited to finally compete as skating partners. When they take the ice for their first competition, they want to show everyone, especially Josh’s family, they are the perfect pair. But ice is slippery, and one misstep puts all their dreams in jeopardy. Now they must show each other both their love and their partnership are strong enough to survive.
Going into reading the book, I didn’t realize that it was a lot shorter than Crossing the Ice. This was convenient in a way, but at the same time left me wanting more. I was able to read this book in about two hours and it was a nice quick read that left you wanting to know what happened next.
We picked up about 8-10 months after Crossing the Ice ended.
Poor Josh. He finally gets a chance to skate with the girl of his dreams and his family wants nothing to do with him. I felt so bad for him. Then the concussion hit and life started to fall apart even more for him. It was clear that he wanted Courtney’s help but at the same time didn’t want to be an inconvenience for her. Courtney, on the other hand, would do anything for Josh and she made it clear.
I could see their fight building up as the book went on, but it was nice to see that they were able to work together to get through it off of the ice. Throughout all of Crossing the Ice I had been waiting for the unlikely hero in Stephanie to pop up and I was so excited to see her come to the rescue in Losing the Ice. While she acted like a total bitch throughout most of the book, I loved that Jennifer Comeaux had more in store for Stephanie’s character than just Josh’s sister.
The only downside to the book was the length. I would’ve loved to hear more of Courtney & Josh’s story that happened in between Crossing the Ice & Losing the Ice. I felt like we missed out a lot on their relationship as they grew together as partners & a couple. It didn’t stop me from liking the book, but it was a piece that I felt was missing.
