Waiting on Wednesday: Off the Ice by Julie Cross

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Off the Ice
(Juniper Falls #1)
Publication Date: February 28, 2017
Paperback, 320 pages, Entangled TEEN
Genres: YA/NA, Contemporary

The NY Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of Whatever Life Throws at You kicks off a brand-new series perfect for fans of Miranda Kennealy and Abbi Glines.

All is fair in love and hockey…

Claire O’Connor is back in Juniper Falls, but that doesn’t mean she wants to be. One semester off, that’s what she promised herself. Just long enough to take care of her father and keep the family business—a hockey bar beside the ice rink—afloat. After that, she’s getting the hell out. Again.

Enter Tate Tanley. What happened between them the night before she left town resurfaces the second they lay eyes on each other. But the guy she remembers has been replaced by a total hottie. When Tate is unexpectedly called in to take over for the hockey team’s star goalie, suddenly he’s in the spotlight and on his way to becoming just another egotistical varsity hockey player. And Claire’s sworn off Juniper Falls hockey players for good.

It’s the absolute worst time to fall in love.

For Tate and Claire, hockey isn’t just a game. And they both might not survive a body check to the heart.

My Thoughts

I’m not sure if this book is YA or NA, but either way, it sounds great! I’ve been really into hockey stories lately, and this book’s premise reminds me of The Score by Elle Kennedy. I haven’t finished reading that book, but I really want to at some point in my crazy hectic life. Also, Julie Cross’s Whatever Life Throws at You was a super fun and quick read, so I’m looking forward to getting my hands on this one soon.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  3. A blogger friend of mine was just reading this book! I can't remember if she ended up loving it or not (probably? She seemed to be enjoying it as she was reading it). I've not read anything by this author, but I love hockey romances. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a great week, Shell. =)
