“…sweet chemistry…”
~ Under the Covers

If you’ve been following the blog for some time you may have noticed that I’m a seasonal reader.  So when the temperature starts to drop I go in search for romances that feature wintery themes and often find those in sports romances.  I had a craving for a m/m figure skating romance and my friend Stephanie came through with this rec!  This was my first time reading Keira Andrews, but it certainly won’t be my last.

Alex and Matt are both figure skaters and Olympic hopefuls.  Alex has always been 100% focused on his career and had no time for distractions such as dating.  But as much as he thinks Matt is too straightlaced, a grump and probably no fun …fate has other plans.  If I could describe this book in one word it would be adorable.  There’s some endearing about these two together even when they’re fighting.  This starts off a bit as an enemies to lovers but I think it quickly moves past that.

The book deals really well with the sport of figure skating and the pressure the athletes feel.  I liked that it didn’t gloss over the sport parts.  I also liked that it dealt with both MCs feelings about coming out and their interactions with their families.  And then there’s the sweet chemistry between them.  They were really cute together!

If you’re looking for a wintery feel book that’s romantic and sweet you may want to give this one a try.  I’ll definitely be reading more books from this author in the future.

About Keira Andrews

If you enjoy reading steamy romances between two men who can’t live without each other, you’ve come to the right place.

After writing for years yet never really finding the right inspiration, Keira discovered her voice in gay romance, which has become a passion. She writes contemporary, historical, fantasy, and paranormal fiction and — although she loves delicious angst along the way — Keira firmly believes in happy endings. For as Oscar Wilde once said:

“The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.”

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
