But life is not what it seems…
For Madison, living up to the expectations of her mother has become impossible, overshadowing her dreams of taking gold at the Winter Olympics. Everyone can see she’s lost the will to compete and one person isn’t afraid to tell her the truth.

From rivals to friends, friends to lovers, Madison soon realizes there’s more to life than the path laid out for her. If she can open her heart to Zoe, she can pave her own way.
And maybe, just maybe, go out a champion.
When privilege and perfect technique meet passion and raw talent, things get hot on the ice.
