Taking the Ice was a lovely conclusion to an adorable series. This book takes place several years down the road and we get to see what happens with Courtney's Olympic dream and where her relationship and partnership with Josh are at, four years later. It was a pretty quick read, no angst whatsoever (except for competition jitters). Speaking of competition, I am always so amazed at the way the author captures that feeling right before they take the ice and while they're doing their programs. I feel so anxious when I'm reading these scenes, it's almost as if I'm the one competing. She truly does a great job with the figure skating aspect of the books. I also loved the fact that it was based around last year's Olympics in Sochi. As a figure skating fan who followed all the events in Sochi, it made it more realistic which was an added bonus. Josh and Courtney have definitely matured by the third book but they are still super cute together and I was glad to see that even four years later they still haven't lost that sweetness toward one another. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

What a fantastic conclusion to the trilogy! I can't imagine dedicating my whole life for years and years to one goal, one impossible dream, yet that's exactly what Josh and Courtney have done. They've trained in ice skating for most of their lives with the dream of making it to the Olympics. This is their last shot to fulfill their dream. I love the way this author is able to convey the emotions that go along with such an intense sport. I felt like I was right there with them, or more accurately, right there inside of Courtney's mind, since it is told from her point of view. The thoughts she has and intuitions about her skating are so very real. As with any sport, these two have a life outside of the rink and it's full of drama. Since they've been dating for years, Courtney is expecting and hoping for a wedding ring, along with the Olympic rings. I love the chemistry between them and the connection they have on the ice. I also love that this isn't a perfect story. There are many things that set them back and challenge them, both on and off of the ice. I love how protective they are of one another. I've loved Josh and Courtney's journey and look forward to what Ms. Comeaux comes up with next. Content: mild language; mild violence (injuries); moderate romantic situations (kissing, sometimes intense; you know what's happening, but it's behind closed doors--fade to black scenes). Clean for an older reader! *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*

In Taking The Ice, the third and final book in the Ice series, the story featuring the ice skating pair of Courtney and Josh continues with more angst, drama, romance, and exhilarating ice skating. Author Jennifer Comeaux once again calls upon her passion for competitive ice skating to weave an emotionally dramatic tale of friendship, love, and competitive dreams that will steal your breath away. If you are a fan of ice skating and all the drama that goes on behind the scenes, then this new series is a must read. If you are a hopeless romantic who loves the dramatic challenges and trials and tribulations that Courtney and Josh will face as they try to balance achieving their Olympic ice skating dreams while they take their love relationship to the next level, then you are in for a treat with this sweet romantic story. Author Jennifer Comeaux pulls out all the stops and takes the reader on one final exhilarating and emotional roller coaster ride as Courtney & Josh's love story continues to unfold with a heartwarming and sigh worthy climatic conclusion. There are not enough words to express how much I loved following Courtney and Josh's journey, I was captivated from the beginning and left completely satisfied at the conclusion. There is just something so exciting about reading a romance story that has a wonderful mixture of romance and the sport of competitive ice skating, it simply draws you in and leaves you breathless. With an intriguing cast of recurring and new characters; engaging dialogue and dramatic interactions; a richly detailed description of the settings and world of Olympic competitive ice skating; and a riveting storyline full of drama, angst, suspense and romance; Taking The Ice is an amazing lighthearted romantic story that will leave you believing in the power of love, sighing and smiling, and wishing that the exciting Ice series would continue (sigh).
