Book Review: 'Home Ice' by Katie Kenyhercz


Two top athletes who have so many personal issues to deal with meet and fall in love. On their way to happy ending, they have to go through a lot of trials and tribulations.
I have a very mixed feelings about this story. On the one hand characters are great, complex and well written. I find Dylan (the hero) sweet and gentle and so supportive. The other character that falls under this category of greatness is Lorelai’s (the heroine) friend Margo. She is such a colorful lady and I enjoyed reading about her performing group called Divas.
On the other hand the relationship between Dylan and Lorelai just doesn’t seem real. The reason for that lies in the story which does not focus so much on the building their relationship as much as it deals with problems Lorelai and Dylan face individually. These problems are connected with their performance in their chosen sports and they reflect on their relationship. In case of Lorelai she was just over the top sometimes. If only story was more focused on the relationship between Lorelai and Dylan, and less on how they dealt with their problems by themselves it would have been much better.
Still there are another good parts of the story that I liked, especially the friendship between Lorelai and Margo. They are complete opposites and Margo is exactly why Lorelai need her as a friend.
Although this story was not perfect match for me, readers who like sports romances might find it interesting, as well as readers who are following this series.
