Brooke Parker never expected to find herself in the tiny town of Juniper Falls, Minnesota. Of course, she also never expected to lose her dad. Or for her mom to lose herself. Brooke feels like she’s losing it…until she finds Juniper Falls hockey. Juniper Falls girls’ hockey, that is.
Jake Hammond, current prince of Juniper Falls, captain of the hockey team, and player with the best chance of scoring it big, is on top of the world. Until one hazing ritual gone wrong lands him injured, sitting on the sidelines, and―shocking even to him―finding himself enjoying his “punishment” as assistant coach for the girls’ team.
As Jake and Brooke grow closer, he finds the quiet new girl is hiding a persona full of life, ideas, and experiences bigger and broader than anything he’s ever known. But to Jake, hockey’s never just been a game. It’s his whole life. And leveraging the game for a shot at their future might be more than he can give. THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
On Thin Ice is the story of Brooke, the new girl and Jake the Hockey Star. It’s not an instant love between these two. They go through something together, that turns their world upside down. But also Brooke decides to do something she’s never done.. play Hockey. I’ve loved Cross’s previous books. But for some reason, I could not connect to the characters. The story is written well; it just did not grab me. Overall, Three Boundless Stars
