Loved this book! romance, mystery, and suspense. Kept my attention from beginning to end.
Kerry is an ice skater who is about finished. She's trying one more time for a gold medal at the Olympics before calling it quits. But before she can skate that one last time she's asked by a fellow skater for help in deflecting from his country. Kerry has been attracted to Mikhail, from Russia, since the first moment she laid eyes on him. But if she helps him she looses her chance to try for gold. When the story started I thought I knew where it as going. A girl helps a guy leave his country, they fall in love and live happily ever after. Well it starts out that way, but then quickly takes several detours. I enjoyed the extra twists and additions to the story that kept popping up to keep it from being the typical, clique romance. It was a fast read that was fun and different. I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
