Overview

Two friends. Two dreams. One night that changes everything…

Ice dancer Aubrey London scoffs at romance. She’s focused on winning a medal at the upcoming Olympics and uses that as her excuse to avoid serious relationships. But when she and longtime friend Chris Grayden are thrown together by unforeseen circumstances, Aubrey finds herself questioning everything she’s ever known about love, complicating her life both on and off the ice.

Pairs skater Emily Petrov embraces romance. She and her husband Sergei still act like honeymooners two years after their wedding. As Emily’s coach, Sergei provides constant support while she prepares to challenge for gold at the Olympics. But Sergei’s support might not be enough to help Emily overcome the one challenge she never saw coming.

With the Games only weeks away, Emily and Aubrey are on the verge of realizing their dreams. But one snowy, stormy night sets in motion a series of events that will test them in ways they never imagined, giving them more to fight for than Olympic medals.

FIGHTING FOR THE EDGE concludes the EDGE series with style and grace. I wouldn't expect anything less from Comeraux and her fabulous characters. When you dive into this series you are welcomed in with a storyline that is romantic, full of life, and absolutely perfect for any age reader. It is clean but the romance is brimming and absolutely overflowing from the story you find yourself lost in it. When I started the second and third book of the series I had to mental prepare myself for the puddle I knew I would find myself in. Comeraux knows what it takes to bring the readers to their weak knees. She definitely had me swooning on more than one occasion. Another thing Comeaux knows what to do is bring drama to the story. I think the drama in book two was so shocking high, I was scared for what this book would bring. Thankfully it was intense, but not crazily so. I still worried and fretted over what would happen with all the characters and the situations they found themselves in. With 2 different stories happening in the same book it was a chaotic read. A good chaotic. I loved the drama and the problems that went down. Now whether or not they all find their happy endings? Well, that is something you are just going to have to read to find out for yourself. I am so utterly in love with this series. From the moment I first read about Emily and Sergei I knew my heart would forever be lost to them. They are simply amazing and some of the nicest characters you will ever read about. And thanks to this series, I have become a fan of ice skating. And I am getting rather excited about the Winter Olympics next year. This story will bring out the fan in you even if you were never before one. I know it did with me. I may not be a diehard fan like Comeaux, but I still like to see if every now and again. Yes, this book (and series) is a must read. Yes, I recommend it. Yes, why are you still sitting around reading my review? Go!! Read!! Fall in love!!

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review. I didn’t read the first 2 books in this series but it wasn’t necessary. This is a good old fashioned love story set in the skating arena and with a few modern twists. It makes you believe in the best kind of falling in love: head over heels with a long-time friend. This story was easy to read and flowed well. I like that it’s a contemporary romance but doesn’t have a lot of explicit sex. And I always like a book that gives me a “happy” cry. The main characters are all strong people but they’d have to be to compete at the level of skating that they do. None of them are perfect which makes them more endearing for the most part. There were a couple times, though, that I wanted to knock some sense into Aubrey and Chris. This is definitely a book for you if you enjoy romance and ice skating with a little bit of drama mixed in!

In the final book of the Edge series, Fighting For The Edge, the reader catches up what has been going on with Emily, Sergei, Chris and Aubrey. Emily and Sergei have been married for over two years and still act like honeymooners, while Chris and Aubrey lament about their single / casual relationships statuses. All of them are practicing for the upcoming Grand Prix Final competition in Tokyo and the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. While the first two books in the series mainly featured the development of Emily and Sergei's relationship, in the third book the feature is extended to include Chris and Aubrey's story, which made me so excited to read. I think author Jennifer Comeaux brings the series full circle to close on a high note with Emily, Chris and Aubrey going for their dreams of Olympic gold while dealing with personal issues and balancing love relationships. Author Jennifer Comeaux weaves an emotionally dramatic tale that focuses more on the off-ice life issues and relationship challenges coupled with the anticipation and anxiety of the upcoming Olympics for Emily, Sergei, Chris and Audrey, that captivates the reader and keeps them spellbound as they turn the pages. With an intriguing cast of recurring and new characters; engaging dialogue and interactions; a richly detailed description of the setting; and a riveting storyline full of drama, suspense and romance; Fighting For The Edge will leave you believing that the power of love can overcome any challenge! I love, love, love the Edge series and the author did not leave me disappointed with a wonderfully dramatic and satisfying conclusion that made me sigh and smile from ear to ear. If you are a fan of ice skating and all the drama that goes on behind the scenes then this series is a must read. If you are a hopeless romantic who loves the dramatic challenges and trials and tribulations that come with life issues and love relationships, then you're in luck, because the author takes the reader on a final exhilarating and emotional roller coaster ride as they follow the unfolding of these lovable characters stories one last time. I hate that this series has to end, but it was an incredible ride, kudos to author Jennifer Comeaux!

I was so excited to get the next chapter in this series! I loved Emily and Sergei in the first two stories, Life on the Edge and Edge of the Past, so reading this one was like hanging out with an old friends! Emily and Sergei have gone through so much, so it was great seeing them as the 'old' married couple in this one! It was also fun getting Chris and Audrey's story. I have always loved Chris with his easy going manner and sense of humor, and Audrey is Emily's best friend, so it was so great getting to spend more time with them. As sad as I am to see this series end, I really enjoyed this book and thought Jennifer Comeaux did a great job in tying everything up. Loved the story and looking forward to more books by Jennifer!

Kept me reading until the very end! Great Series! Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read every free chance I had and I couldn’t wait to see how this series ended. This was a good conclusion to this series. I couldn’t believe what happened with Emily. But they handled it well and they went on to complete their goals. Was it a bit unbelievable? Yes, absolutely. Did it provide enough drama and suspense and worry? Yes, absolutely. (And, yes, I am being vague here because I do not want to spoil this book for anyone. So, you will just have to deal with the vagueness.) Chris is a wonderful skating partner and a wonderful guy. I fell in love with him more in this book than in the previous two books. He is featured in Fighting for the Edge. And he deserves all of the attention he gets and then some. We also learn more about Aubrey. She is such a sweetheart. She is kind of lost when it comes to relationships and she has a reason. I want to gush more about this book but I can’t without spoiling it. It was good. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It kept me reading until the very end. I want to know more about all of the characters. I hope there is a spin-off series. ;-) Would I recommend it: I would recommend it, especially if you have read the Edge series. Will I read it again: I may if I decide to read this series again. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
