    Great YA read

    I really enjoyed this one! A great YA read dealing with life in a small town and the pressures teens face when family life has issues. He has an abusive father but has never let anyone know how bad it is. She has a loving family but her father's sudden illness throws her life off kilter. Together Claire and Tate help each other through the tough stuff and grow close as their hearts become involved. Loved the story and of course the writing was great. Definitely a book I would recommend to everyone.

    Loved it!

    When I was offered the chance to read the ARC of this by Entangled Publishing, I jumped at it! I'm all about any book that features hockey at any level of the game. And it is a book that yanked me in from the very first page. There is a lot to love about the story in Off the Ice. The characters are well-developed and feel like real people. Tate is a goalie on his high school team, thrust into the limelight when the star goalie is suddenly ostracized by most of the town. He loves the game, but it comes with baggage for him and he just isn't sure where he fits anymore. Claire is a year older than Tate, taking a break from college to put her family first during a crisis. She has baggage of her own and there are days when she just doesn't know which end is up. These are characters that are thrust into adulthood too soon, dealing with issues that they shouldn't have to. And while my heart bleeds for their characters, I can't help but appreciate that they are characters that act with maturity and strength. Their stories aren't all light and happy, but they are real, with all of the emotions that go along with real life. They were both characters that I understood and related to. And most of all, I loved that their romance wasn't the stuff of fairy tales. It had more than its fair share of angst and issues. In other words, it was real Overall: I didn't want this book to end. I loved it. I loved the story. I loved the romance. I loved the issues and conflicts and that they had the undeniable ring of truth. This was my first book by author Julie Cross, but it won't be my last

    Entertaining Hockey Book!!

    Off the Ice by Julie Cross......This was an entertaining hockey story, that kept me flipping pages. I enjoyed watching Claire and Tate's story unfold. The characters were very relatable and likeable. This is my first book by this author and she has gained a new reader. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book from publisher via NetGalley.
