About  Icebreaker by Hannah Grace

Anastasia Allen has worked her entire life for a shot at Team USA. It looks like everything is going according to plan when she gets a full scholarship to the University of California, Maple Hills and lands a place on their competitive figure skating team.

Nothing will stand in her way, not even the captain of the hockey team, Nate Hawkins.

Nate’s focus as team captain is on keeping his team on the ice. Which is tricky when a facilities mishap means they are forced to share a rink with the figure skating team—including Anastasia, who clearly can’t stand him.

But when Anastasia’s skating partner faces an uncertain future, she may have to look to Nate to take her shot.

Sparks fly, but Anastasia isn’t worried… because she could never like a hockey player, right?

Why should you read this book?

Icebreaker is for you if you are looking for a new adult romance set in the ice skating rink. Nate is infatuated by Anastasia but she just tries to avoid him until they are forced together to practice. This is an insta-lust book with many external drama and a clear villain.

Content Warnings: Disordered eating is strongly mentioned, and there is a lot of gaslighting from the book’s villain to Anastasia.

Finding Her Edge
By Iacopelli, Jennifer

Adriana Russo is figure skating royalty.


With gold-medalist parents, and her older sister headed to the Olympics, all she wants is to live up to the family name and stand atop the ice dance podium at the Junior World Championships. But fame doesn’t always mean fortune, and their legendary skating rink is struggling under the weight of her dad’s lavish lifestyle. The only thing keeping it afloat is a deal to host the rest of the Junior Worlds team before they leave for France.


That means training on the same ice as her first crush, Freddie, the partner she left when her growth spurt outpaced his. For the past two years, he’s barely acknowledged her existence, and she can’t even blame him for it.


When the family’s finances take another unexpected hit, losing the rink seems inevitable until her partner, Brayden, suggests they let the world believe what many have suspected: that their intense chemistry isn’t contained to the ice. Fans and sponsors alike take the bait, but keeping up the charade is harder than she ever imagined. And training alongside Freddie makes it worse, especially when pretending with Brayden starts to feel very real.


As the biggest competition of her life draws closer and her family’s legacy hangs in the balance, Adriana is caught between her past and present, between the golden future she’s worked so hard for, and the one she gave up long ago.

Duke Callahan thought he’d spend his offseason months partying with the Stanley Cup again. It never crossed his mind that he’d sustain a season-ending injury in the playoffs and end up back home trying to recover.

He hadn’t visited his old rink since he left for junior hockey seven years ago, but there’s not much else to do in his tiny hometown with a concussion and broken ankle.

But when he wanders into the Ice League Arena looking for a summer coaching gig, he sees her…

But that wasn’t possible.

She moved to Canada for her figure skating around the same time he left for juniors. He tells himself it’s just his mind playing tricks on him… because all his memories of this place included her.

Coming back home to train at the Ice League wasn’t Claire Kessel’s first choice, but neither was breaking up with her old skating partner.

Her new plan– find a better partner who will help her wrap up her skating career so she can finally start moving on with her life goals.

She knows she needs to stay focused this summer, but unfortunately, all focus goes out the window when she sees him.

She also knows that a better woman would’ve walked away with class… But she can’t stop seven years worth of a grudge from bursting forward.

Because Duke Callahan got the last word seven years ago, and she’d rather die than not get it this time.
