“Robin Friesz skipped college to take a radio gig in Canada. He walked into a drug raid in Toronto. The charges were eventually dropped. He was befriended by a Lawn care owner who harnessed his skills as a Curler. He worked his way on the American curling team. Inga Johan found herself out of work as her TV series was cancelled in Sweden. She re-discovered the world of figure skating and beat out a talented squad to make the Olympic team.”
Awesome a love story that involves curling. And I am serious---I love curling. Mr. Bishop has the definite knack for righting a love story that involves sports he is able to talk about a reader may not understand but do it in a way that flows and is exciting.
I absolutely fell in love with the Hero Robin, he is charming and well mannered. It is unfortunate that his luck is as lousy as it is at the beginning of the book, but it’s all those bad things that lead to greatness.
I hated the Heroine, she isn’t supposed to be likeable in the beginning and she isn’t, she is self-centered and rude. Because of this, the transformation into a likable woman is a hard one but one that the author is able to eventually make.
If the reader is ready to suspend disbelief (because it hard to believe that these two could accomplish what they do) and take a jump of faith into this sports romance, you will enjoy it. Yes I would read this one again and yes I will read more by this author.
