Since I've read the first two book in this series I was really looking forward to reading and reviewing this last book in the "Edge" series. I love watching competitive figure skating. It's one of my favorite sports to watch. The Olympics is a magical time to watch figure skating and this book is set around making it to the Olympics.

It was nice to have Emily and Sergei married in this book. I liked it. Adding in Aubrey's story was awesome. I have always liked Chris so it was good to see him so u

I realize that this is book 3 in the series and I know that I haven't read the other books. I had planned to, but ran out of time. That said, I had no trouble at all following along with the story. My only confusion was when the story jumped from Em's point of view (first person) to a third person point of view quite regularly and it took me a little bit to figure out who was speaking when it was in first person. Once I had that down, I really got into the story. I really want to go back and rea ...more

In Jennifer Comeaux’s series about pairs skaters and their relationships with each other and their coaches, it all comes to a highly dramatic and stunning conclusion in FIGHTING FOR THE EDGE. Em and Aubrey’s final challenge is Jennifer Comeaux’s greatest victory. Both touching and suspenseful, Fighting for the Edge is a game changer that will have fans of the series giving both the characters and the author a standing ovation once they’ve turned the v

Big thanks to Jennifer and Astraea Press for a copy for Review

I can't say enough how much I loved this final installment in the Edge Series. It has been such an incredible and emotional road for all these characters, and I am very sad to say goodbye. *tries not to get emotional*

It has been truly wonderful following Emily (Butler) Petrov, I just love her last name *winks* on her skating and Olympic journey. She is truly a character to admire for her strong spirit, determination, compassion, and
At First Sight: Emily is living her dream, she's one half of one of the top rated pairs skating teams and has a great partner in Chris (who keeps her calm during the competitions, something she never managed to do before pairing with him), and is married to her handsome coach Sergei and has a real shot at winning in the Torino Olympics.

Aubrey is also living the dream, she has a great partner in Nick, and great coaches and she's one half of the top rated US ice dance team. If it weren't for an il
I liked getting to see things from Emily & Aubrey's POV, it was a lot of fun. Definitely another cray book, oh Emily! Loved Aubrey & Chris. Both Sergei & Chris are too freaking adorable (I need one, lol)! This is definitely one of my favorite series, I can't help but love all the characters & get sucked into the story.

I know it's not a good habit starting a series at the last book, but I'm not sorry for the final book in Jennifer Comeaux's Edge series (which just makes me want to go back and read the other two books). It's not like I needed to read the previous two books to be caught up on everything that was happening with this story, which is probably why I loved it so much. In Fighting for the Edge, Emily Butler plans to retire after this Olympics, making this her and her partner, Chris's, last chance for ...more

FIGHTING FOR THE EDGE is the third and last book in the Edge trilogy. However, it stands alone quite well, and you don’t have to have read the other two for this one to make sense. It follows figure skaters Emily and Aubrey on their journey to the Olympics. There’s plenty of skating and romance, and I’d say it’s the perfect book to read if you’re looking for more figure skating or Olympic action.

Emily plans to retire after the Olympics, a

This one was fuck-tapcular. Once again, the best part was the figure skating. However, unlike the rest of the books where the figure skating seemed fairly realistic there was a plot point that just had me shaking my head.

Like the rest of the book.

First, let’s talk about the structure of this one. The first two were purely first person. Throwing a third person POV in addition to the first at this point of the series seems a little odd and made the story fe
Fighting for the Edge is the third, and final, book in the Edge series. It is amazing! Perfect way to end the series! Most of all, I love how the final book made Chris and Aubrey more of a focus. The alternating scenes between them and Emily are easy to follow. I love this series. Book 3 did not let me down in any way. Love it!!!!! :)

Highly recommended for everyone 12-up, especially all YA/NA readers!

This third book in "The Edge" series was my favorite, as the author let her fun side shine through in the dialog and situations. The point of view switches between Emily, our strong pair skating heroine of the first two books, and a third person account of Emily's dear friends, Aubrey and Chris, and their unexpected new attraction to each other.

The book takes place as the figure skaters are training hard to make the US Olympic Team, which is exciting, and the backdrop is Boston at Christmastime.
Emily and Sergei have now been married for two years and are working hard to win the gold at the Olympics as Sergei continues to coach Emily and Chris. More challenges come their way and I was kept on the edge of my seat wondering what Emily would decide to do. The story also tells of Chris and his interest with Aubrey, Emily's best friend. I really liked Chris throughout the other two books, he is so happy and carefree all the time. It was nice that he played a bigger part in this book and I wa ...more

I got absorbed in this entire series, from the journey of Emily and Sergei’s relationship in the first book, and the countless dramas the characters have experienced in the second book. But, this third book is sort of different because dual POVs were provided (Emily and Aubrey’s.) At first, it was kind of confusing when the first POV (Emily) will switch to third POV (Aubrey.) But after I got that nailed down, this story is beautiful, and the series of problems a
I have been reading a few New Adult and Adult books in the past few months and when I saw that there was going to be a blog tour for Fighting for the Edge, I jumped right into it. I have wanted to read this book for a while now, so I could not say no, and I was not disappointed all.

Fighting for the Edge is the 3rd book in The Edge Series. But you don't have to read the two books before Fighting for the Edge, you will have a better understanding of some of the other characters. I didn't read the

Fighting For The Edge continues the story of Emily and Sergei after their perfect wedding. Emily and Chris are living their life as the Olympic medalist and continues to compete in several competition, hoping to achieve their dreams as gold Olympic medalist. As the story unfolds, we catch an unexpected love blossoming between Aubrey and Chris, and Emily together with Sergei also receives an unexpected surp
This book was just like catching up with old friends. It is the third in a series and while it can be read as a stand alone it is better enjoyed as part of the whole. I was very happy with where the series concludes. This series is for those that like their heros without a lot of edges. Jennifer Comeaux's heros tend to lean more towards being beta heros versus alpha males which I really appreciate. Her heros are truly good guys who value women and see them in respectful ways not how they can use ...more
Ashley - Book Labyrinth
I really, truly adore these books. I loved delving back into the story of Emily and Sergei once again in this third volume of the Edge series. Since these two are solidly together we also get involved in the story of Aubrey and Chris. Jennifer Comeaux flawlessly weaves in Aubrey's perspective in the third person (Emily's POV is in first person), giving us the romantic drama that would otherwise be missing. I loved getting to know Chris even better, and seeing Aubrey stay true to herself while al ...more

Review: 4 stars

General: Please note this is the third in a series, overall I think it was OK to read without the previous books but would definitely recommend waiting. Overall this novel was complex, filled with great tension and I really enjoyed it because of my love of ice skating. I was a bit shocked to find out the Olympics wasn’t the foreground story

Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I read every free chance I had and I couldn’t wait to see how this series ended.

This was a good conclusion to this series. I couldn’t believe what happened with Emily. But they handled it well and they went on to complete their goals. Was it a bit unbelievable? Yes, absolutely. Did it provide enough drama and suspense and worry? Yes, absolutely. (And, yes, I am being vague here because I do not want to spoil this book for anyone. So, you will just ha
In the final book of the Edge series, Fighting For The Edge, the reader catches up what has been going on with Emily, Sergei, Chris and Aubrey. Emily and Sergei have been married for over two years and still act like honeymooners, while Chris and Aubrey lament about their single / casual relationships statuses. All of them are practicing for the upcoming Grand Prix Final competition in Tokyo and the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy.

While the first two books in the series mainly featured the deve

4 Stars in my Sky!

I hadn't read the previous books in Jennifer Comeaux’s Edge series before starting this one, but I had no problem keeping up with Fighting For the Edge. Yes, there is obviously a lot of back story but the main element is the ambition and dreams for Olympic glory.

The book is told from the POV of Emily and Aubrey who are both female female figure skaters hoping to win an Olympic medal. Emily is married to her coach Sergei and is partnered with Chris, whilst Aubrey skates with he
Mandy (I read Indie) Anderson
FIGHTING FOR THE EDGE concludes the EDGE series with style and grace. I wouldn't expect anything less from Comeaux and her fabulous characters. When you dive into this series you are welcomed in with a storyline that is romantic, full of life, and absolutely perfect for any age reader. It is clean but the romance is brimming and absolutely overflowing from the story you find yourself lost in it. When I started the second and third book of the series I had to mental prepare myself for the puddle ...more

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The original review can be found at Genuine Jenn

I absolutely love this series! I grew up eating, drinking and sleeping figure skating. I also had a brother that did pairs and dance and went to nationals. I love reading a great figure skating series especially one that is meant for adults with a little romance and drama thrown in.

The characters in this series are very easy to love and I love that in this book we get to know Aubrey
Fighting for the Edge captured my attention from the get go. We get to see how things are with Em and Sergei married. The balancing of Coach/ husband relationship. Ms. Comeaux sure does pack a punch with the unexpected, I never saw some of the curve balls coming. They were a fabulous surprise. I also like that we see Chris Em's partner and Aubrey friendship grow! We get double the romance! I loved the story and the character development. Em makes some difficult choices. Aubrey does as well. Both ...more
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

I didn’t read the first 2 books in this series but it wasn’t necessary. This is a good old fashioned love story set in the skating arena and with a few modern twists. It makes you believe in the best kind of falling in love: head over heels with a long-time friend.

This story was easy to read and flowed well. I like that it’s a contemporary romance but doesn’t have a lot of explicit sex. And I always like a book that gives me a “happy” cry.
This entire series from start to finish is great, the characters are wonderfully developed and solid. In this 3rd book Sergie, and Emily are still going strong 2 yrs into their marriage. This couple is portrayed in such a great way, they still are in love & still have heat in their relationship. this was refreshing for me to read, since we get so much of the first's in relationships when we read. But if you are more inclined to that we get that in this book to with the introduction of develo ...more
Who doesn't love happy endings? Well, Fighting for the Edge is the PERFECT ending to the Edge Series.

Emily and Sergi had to struggle being romantically involved as coach and skater in Life on the Edge, then had to deal with Sergi's past in Edge of the Past, now we finally get not just one but TWO Happily Ever Afters in Fighting for the Edge.

I loved learning more about Aubrey and especially Chris! I've had a book crush on Chris since Life on the Edge. Jennifer could write a whole book about him
I was so excited to get the next chapter in this series! I loved Emily and Sergei in the first two stories, Life on the Edge and Edge of the Past, so reading this one was like hanging out with an old friends! Emily and Sergei have gone through so much, so it was great seeing them as the ‘old’ married couple in this one!

It was also fun getting Chris and Audrey’s story. I have always loved Chris with his easy going manner and sense of humor, and Audrey is Emily’s best friend, so it was so great ge
Disclaimer: I received no compensation from the author or publisher for this honest review.

I was thrilled to find an author who wrote about one of my favorite sports: figure skating. I enjoyed this book a great deal. The handling of the characters, their various personalities, feelings and reactions combined with the very realistic portrayal of the figure skating world kept me firmly invested in the story and the characters.

I felt a little left out of the loop in some scenes when the married co
