Waiting on Wednesday: Off the Ice

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


This week I am waiting on
Off the Ice  (Juniper Falls #1) by Julie Cross

Publication Date: February 7th 2017

Goodreads Summary
Next season was supposed to be his year. Junior Tate Tanley had big plans to ride the varsity bench most of the season, but when the Otters star goalie storms out of the arena during the first home game of the season, Tate is in the spotlight and under the gun.

Enter Claire O’Connor, the girl Tate’s admired for years, his sister’s best friend. Claire’s back from a year away at school to take care of her father and help keep the family business—a hockey bar beside the ice rink—afloat. One semester off, that’s what Claire promised herself.
And then straight back to school, out of Juniper Falls. And she has dozens of reasons for wanting to get the hell out. Again.

Last year, the night before Claire left, she came to Tate’s rescue and what could have been a secret that distanced them ended up drawing them closer the moment she returned to town. For Claire and Tate, leaning on each other feels as natural as breathing but with Claire trying her best to leave again and Tate more rooted to his town than ever, it seems like the worst time to fall in love. Assuming either of them can stop it from happening.

What can I say, I’m hooked to these sport contemporary romances and ice hockey is slowly becoming my new favourite sport. 😉 This sounds like another fun, quick read that promises to have a lot of sport and swoonworthy moments. I’m also excited to learn more about Claire’s family dynamic and watch her and Tate come together. 

What’s your most anticipated?

    1. Funny you should mention that book because I’ve just finished writing my review for it. I love it. Jason Brody is an absolute sweetheart, I loved it and I’m so glad I gave the book a chance.


    1. *gulps* No pressure. 😛

      Speaking of epic contemporaries, if you fancy another Heather Demetrios fix I’d recommend Something Real. Shit gets real in that book. 😉


    1. I didn’t think I’d enjoy these sport romances, especially since I don’t seem to have an athletic bone in my body. However, there’s something really addictive about these types of books and it actually makes me appreciate sports a bit more.
