Goodreads: A patch of black ice is all it takes for Ryan “Preach” Armstrong’s perfectly planned future to skid out of control. The car crash shatters his hockey dreams…and injures Woodhaven’s newest student, Grace Milner. As much as this feisty track phenom gets under Preach’s skin in all the best and worst ways, she might just be his path to redemption…
Grace can’t believe that all it took was seriously bad timing and a hot but prickly hockey player to threaten her lifelong dream of joining the Air Force. Now, instead of prepping for the track season and upcoming start of basic training, she has to complete community service with the absolute last person she would ever want to be stuck with—the guy who shattered her future.
When two fierce competitors collide this hard, the only result is heartbreak…or an epic victory as they cross the finish line together.
Ope’s Opinion: I really enjoyed the story of Preach and Grace. I could have enjoyed it more if all the foul language had been left out or limited. I did not know this book was part of a series until after I finished reading it – I did not feel like I missed anything.
This was a sweet story that was mostly innocent, but still realistic. It was great to see a group of friends who support each other even when things are not going well. The epilogue finished the story off nicely.
If there is another book in the series, I would enjoy reading it to see where the group of friends are now.
