In the rink of love one misstep can cost you everything...

Courtney and Josh are by far one of NA's most adorable couples. I fell in love with them immediately in Crossing The Ice (Book 1) and with the amazing Emily Stokes.

I cannot describe how thrilled I was when I discovered Emily would be narrating Losing the Ice! She has such a gift for taking on the characters and their different voices, whether male or female. I've never enjoyed an audiobook m

My ThoughtsLosing the Ice is the second book in the New Adult Ice Series. The Ice series is a contemporary romance series centering around ice skating pairs. You should read the first book, Crossing the Ice, before you read Losing the Ice as they both feature the same couple. Courtney and Josh. Crossing the Ice was one of my favorite books of 2014 so I feel confidant recommending it to fans of contemporary romance and ice skat

I always have so much fun when I revisit this world Jennifer has created. In Losing the Ice, Courtney and Josh are getting ready for their first competition and I thought she did such a good job of capturing how nervous and excited they were and how big a step was for them to start skating together after having had different partners most of their lives.

I liked that and that the author didn't gloss over how hard it for Court and Josh to adapt to each other, and how their love and trust was shak

(4.5 Stars) I love the world of ice skating. I must admit that I don't always get as involved in it as I could when it's not the Olympics, but if I happen to see it on tv, I'm completely captivated. I love the way Ms. Comeaux really digs behind the scenes to the blood, sweat, and tears of the sport and brings the reader along with her. You can see my review of the first book here. You definitely want to start with Book 1.

Big thanks to Jennifer for an ARC copy for review.

What another great installment in the Ice series. Just like her other books before, this one has plenty of ice skating, intense moments, uncertainty, and sweet romance. I loved this continuation of Courtney and Josh's story. I really adore the relationship between Josh and Courtney. These two have complete faith in each other, share such a close bond, always have one another's best interests at heart, and are very much in love.

Love through adversity

I really enjoyed Losing the Ice the 2nd book in the Ice Series. We got a chanxe to learn more about Courtney and Josh. Seeing them go through adversity on a very real subject was heart wrenching, but I never stopped routing for them.

I think the characters flowed together so well in this book. The had more depth and you could really start to feel their love become more of a permanent fixture.

In Losing the Ice, the second book in the Ice series, the story featuring the ice skating pair of Courtney and Josh continues with more angst, drama, romance, and exhilarating ice skating.

Author Jennifer Comeaux once again calls upon her passion for competitive ice skating to weave an emotionally dramatic tale of friendship, love, and competitive dreams that will steal your breath away. If you are a fan of ice skating and all the drama that goes on behind the scenes, then this new spinoff series

Josh and Courtney are about to embark on the journey of a lifetime. Not many skaters get to skate with their one true love. But these two are making it happen. They have the support of friends and family behind them. Just not Josh's family. Then tragedy strikes and their dreams of skating together may cease before it ever got a chance to take off. Will their love be enough to make it back on the ice?

Josh and Courtney are some amazing characters that have been through a lot and still have hurdles

Narration - Emily Stokes - really good! She's the perfect voice for Josh and Courtney. Several wonderful character voices and a great storyteller!

This is a darker look at the psychology of sport. Muscle memory is such an important part of all athletics, but this portrays the absolute truth that the mind is really in control.

Josh and Courtney are skating and finally competing together, but a major slip up puts their future at risk. Both of them are tested to the limits of their patienc

I'm so lucky to have received Losing the Ice. The thing is, I absolutely adored Crossing the Ice and those six months were way to long to wait for th sequel. So getting it early was not only a pleasure but also a relief.

First off, Josh and Courtney were adorable as ever. It's hard to tell any more than that without spoilers, but I can disclose this much; their relationship changed. A lot. And it's not necessarily in an easy or positive way. However, in the end I was more than s

Courtney and Josh are partners, both on and off the ice. After a shaky start, the pair are finally ready to compete at the elite level. Will a horrific accident crush their competitive dreams and threaten their personal relationship as well?

Romance books usually make it easy for the main characters to be together, often falling in love at the drop of a hat and having no real problems. Author Jennifer Comeaux takes a more realistic approach, which I find refreshing. In reality, relationships are

Losing the Ice jumps right into the action. It's been a few months since the end of Crossing the Ice, and Josh and Courtney are at their first big skating competition as a new pair. Courtney and Josh are an amazing couple, and even though their love and partnership is put to the test, I never once worried it wouldn't work out. Jennifer has created such a strong, loving bond between the two that nothing could break them up.

Even dealing with his injury, Josh is still a hunky, swoon inducing lead.

Losing the Ice is an exceptional novella. Seriously, it’s just so, so good: exactly what I’ve grown to expect from Jennifer Comeaux. Courtney and Josh are interesting, layered characters, and their story is told through clear, engaging writing. Jennifer is perfect at writing both sweet moments for the characters and total crises. She’s a pro at making her readers feel the emotions of her characters. Whenever I pick up a book from her I completely identify with the characters and feel like I’m on ...more

This is Jennifer Comeaux's follow up novella to Crossing the Ice. She continues Josh and Courtney's saga now that they are competing as partners. You get more of her trademark sweet romance with just a bit of angst and tension.

To note, even though this would probably be considered New Adult due to the character's ages, this author writes the clean and sweet variety of NA romance. She also doesn't write NA with the overdone, tired tropes of dark back stories and dealing with heavy issues such as

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in Jennifer's Ice series, Crossing the Ice, when I read it a couple months ago. I really liked Courtney and Josh's characters and the direction their story had taken, so I was really excited to learn there would be a sequel. The tone of the sequel is a little bit different, but I still enjoyed it. The ending was, of course, the best part though.

This book starts with Courtney and Josh as a happy couple – on and

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

The release for Ms. Comeaux's books always leaves me excited. I love the world of figure skating in books (and I love watching it too, although I don't get to as much as I would like to). It is fun to see into the world of skating and especially the world of pairs skating and the relationships between skaters.

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

Courtney and Josh's romance continues, and this time, they will be competing together. In this second book in the Ice series, the story focuses on on them as a couple and the obstacles they face on and off the ice. Emily Stokes does an amazing job...again...narrating their story. Her animated reading brought these characters to life, so full of emotion and personality.

I've been looking forward to reading this book for quite some time. Josh and Courtney have had some struggles, both personal and professional, and I was hoping they'd have an easier time of it. However, I should've known it wouldn't be so simple, but that they'd find a way to get through new challenges.

Somethings haven't changed. I still detest Josh's parents. They still haven't cottoned onto the fact their son is happy doing what he does and that doesn't make him a lesser man. Even if

There's a lot I can say but it would mostly be me gushing.
I first picked up Life on the Edge my junior year of high school; I was going through a romance genre phase. Well, I fell in love with Comeaux's writing and characters. So, I kept up with the series. Fortunately,two years later and I am still loving the romance genre.
I can't remember much of "Crossing the Ice" but I remembered how much I swooned over Josh. Again, I swooned over him

Did I enjoy this book: I did but not as much as the first book in this series. I loved Crossing the Ice (you can read my review here), and I have loved all of Ms. Comeaux’s other books. Losing the Ice just felt a bit different, and it was understandable.

Here’s the tricky part: I don’t want to spoil the book, so I can’t tell you exactly what I thought. Let’s just say that the main event shocked me, had me on the edge of my seat, and had me worried. BUT the aftermath was a bit too slow an

I absolutely love Court & Josh! They went through so much to get together as a couple and as a figure skating pair in the first book Crossing the Ice. I was so excited to read this next installment even though I was worried by the title that Court and Josh were going to be facing more challenges. Boy was I right! Sometimes, life just isn't easy. We always want things to go our way and oftentimes when reading, we want the characters to live a charmed life and for everything to fall into place ...more

Losing the Ice, a novella length follow up to Crossing the Ice, picks up about eight months later, Courtney and Josh have been skating together and are about to compete in their first big competition. They're on the ice and then everything goes wrong.

Losing the Ice focuses on the aftermath of the incident - which I can't say more about because I don't want to spoil it. What happens tests them as partners, romantically and as skating partners. I enjoyed seeing Courtney and Josh together. Even whe

I was excited when Losing the Ice came out this year because I really enjoyed Crossing the Ice (book 1). I was looking forward to more of Josh and Courtney’s story.

Losing the Ice didn’t have quite the same spark that Crossing the Ice held. It could be because a good portion of it is pretty darn angsty (not my favorite thing to read). It could be that it was too short. Or it was both of those things combined.

Courtney was still pretty awesome and very supportive. Her support, even when Josh wasn’t

The first book in this series was great. I loved the adorableness and excitement. But this book made me cry.

I'm not going to say too much about the plot, but in short; Josh and Courtney fall during a performance, Josh gets a severe concussion, and all kinds of stuff just goes wrong.

I read this during a weekend in Williamsburg and I would like to send a personal shout out to the author for keeping me up until all hours so that when it came time for me to explore the Colonial settlement, all I co

I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I first started reading this book to discover it was set so many months after the first one and we missed out on seeing the beginnings of Josh and Courtney finally skating together since I'd been looking forward to that since very early on in Ice #1.

I loved the first book in the series and I was really looking forward to the next installment. I was not disappointed. We are thrown back into the skating world in this next sequel and Josh and Courtney are now skating partners. This takes some time to adjust to as they have always had other partners to skate before. This also becomes a challenge since they also have a personal relationship off the ice. The author did a great job showing that it is not always easy to do both and be completely in ...more

Another fabulous book by Jennifer Comeaux. I was hooked from the start as I am with any of Jennifer's figure skating novels. There is just something about them that draws me in and brings back skating memories of the past. This is the second book in the series following Courtney and Josh as they have begun their relationship and their skating relationship. Of course not everything goes the way it should during their first competition and has the couple in trying times just before nationals. This ...more

I went into this book knowing I had loved the first one so chances were I was going to love this one too. However, as I started reading, I began to worry that all the things I loved about Josh's personality were gone. Luckily, that wasn't the case and I suppose it was all part of the plot. Well played.

For a short novella, there certainly was plenty of action. I absolutely love the way the author narrates the competitions! I feel the same kind of excitement reading those scenes as I do when I wat
