Off the Ice by Julie Cross (Juniper Falls #1)

3.75 Stars

3.75 Stars? I know it’s a strange rating, but I couldn’t decide between a 3.5 and a 4.

Off the Ice is a mature YA romance. It deals with some extremely hard subjects and those subjects play a very large part. The romance was a little lacking, but the kissing was good.  I found the characters actions and reactions to be believable. The author could have gone the dramatic route with the ex-girlfriend, but she didn’t and I appreciated the realness of it. The secondary characters were surprisingly developed. I already see some characters that I hope get their own books in the Juniper Falls series (I’m looking at you Leo!)

I debated on reading this because I don’t generally read hockey romances. I live in Texas, and it’s hot here, there is no ice and football is king. Hockey is foreign to me. BUT I read my 1st Julie Cross book last year and absolutely fell for her writing. I’m glad I tried this one. I think it’s a solid start to a series and I hope to see more books in it soon.
