This is a delightful second chance romance filled with so many unexpected twists and turns it takes the reader on a riveting journey, from the USA to Russia with plenty of love along the way!

When the man she loved deserted her two years ago, Amy Shepherd was heartbroken but when he rings to ask her to help him this kind hearted young lady still rushes to his aid. She’s a sports therapist who originally dreamed of training elite figure skaters but when Mikhail (Misha) Zaikov left her after sending her a text, she took a job working in a school. Now he’s back but still suffering from the injuries which halted his career. There’s much angst and turmoil to overcome and new dreams and opportunities to explore but should she give him a second chance? Will he just break her heart once more? Should they have simple a professional relationship this time - or will their mutual attraction overcome the barriers both have built around their hearts?

The story has great, well developed characters - including some very different skaters, coaches and family members as well as the two main characters. Their interactions are fraught with emotion, the past impacting dramatically on relationships. As Misha endeavours to return to peak performance in this sport, the dangers of participating in such a physical sport are portrayed brilliantly, helping the reader feel every misstep and fall along the way. This is a story of determination, overcoming obstacles and training to succeed in a competitive environment but one where love will eventually find the way to heal and give guidance for a happier, loving future ahead. The author takes the reader on the journey, leading to the HEA but with plenty of angst along the way!

Thanks to the author, publishers, Barclay Publicity and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
