A Dream's Edge novel
After a family tragedy, aspiring ballerina Amaliya Marcell is adrift. When she is forced to leave behind everything she knows, the lost young woman struggles to build a new life in an unfamiliar city. But when she meets a handsome world-class figure skater, she finds a glimmer of hope.
After his sister’s unexpected retirement from figure skating, Tyler Linden is devastated to give up his shot at the US national championships. His only hope is to find a new partner, a task that proves nearly impossible—until he observes a beautiful young woman at the local ice rink. Struck by her grace and poise, Tyler takes an unthinkable risk and asks Amaliya to become his new partner. To both of their surprise, she agrees. The path to the championship won’t be easy, but Amaliya and Tyler quickly establish a solid partnership and a profound connection—both on and off the ice. But competition at the championships is fierce, and when the time comes, they will be forced to put everything on the line if they hope to achieve their dreams.

I absolutely devoured this book. I downloaded it in the evening and found myself looking forward to the book hangover I knew was coming. The minute I picked it up I was hooked. While this was a little different from the author's usual fare, it was just as enjoyable and well written. Traci Hunter Abramson has a way with words that puts me in the middle of the story. I truly feel like a fly on the wall. Her characters are rich and robust to the point I feel like they could truly be people in my life and find myself missing them. This is a magnificent novel written by a master story teller. It took me away and gave me a lovely escape. I found the descriptions to be amazing. I could just picture the setting and found myself wishing I was there. The characters had great chemistry and really had each other's backs. There were a couple stories happening that just made it all richer. When I finished the book at about 1:30 in the morning, I felt myself longing for more. In fact, I can't wait until the next books in this series follow, at least I hope it is a series. I am not quite done with these characters and I would love to spend more time in this world of competitive figure skating. Pro tip- don't start this in the evening. I received an e-book through NetGalley and this is my honest review.
