Everyone loves hockey superstar Pierce Miller. Everyone except Lia Bailey.
When the two are forced to teach a skating class to save the rink, Lia’s not sure she’ll survive the pressure of Nationals and Pierce’s ego. Not only can’t he remember her name, he signed her bottle of water like she was one of his groupies. Ugh.
But if there’s one thing Lia knows better than figure skating, it’s hockey. Hoping to take his ego down a notch—or seven—she logs into his team website under an anonymous name to give him pointers on his less-than-stellar playing.
Turns out, Pierce isn’t arrogant at all. And they have a lot in common. Too bad he’s falling for the anonymous girl online. No matter how much fun they’re starting to have in real life, she’s afraid he’s going to choose fake-Lia over the real one…
This book is told in first person from the perspective of Lia and Pierce. This reads as a fast contemporary sports romance which is incredibly cute.
Both characters have a fleshed out backstory that is slowly revealed to the reader. The slow burning romance also allows for each character to slowly develop into someone that they want to be but were about to give up.
Overcoming Fear: Both characters face a fear of some kind in this book that is hindering them from taking the next step they want to take. With support from each other, the idea of overcoming this fear becomes increasingly clear.
Family: Pierces relationship with his brother is the major familial relationship I noted in this book. It warmed my heart to read of this loving and caring relationship.
Love: This was a hate ( or dislike) to love relationship is clear in this book. The ideas of love holding you up and supporting you can also be seen.
This a cute, funny, flirty, book that reminds me of Kasie West or Stephanie Perkins. This is perfect for anyone looking for a YA contemporary romance or needing to get out of a reading slump.
