Madison Brinkley has been raised a competitor. She lives a regimented, but privileged life. This is her last chance at Olympic gold.
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.
Zoe Claretto is a feisty newcomer and a fan favorite. She knows it won’t be easy to win a medal at the world’s most famous international sporting event, but she’s there for the love of figure skating. And, as it turns out, for the love of Madison.
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.
