Publisher's Summary

Liza Petrov's entire life has been about skating and winning her sport's top prize - Olympic gold. She's stayed sheltered inside her bubble, not daring to stray from her destined path.

Until she meets Braden Patrick.

He makes her heart flutter with possibility, and for the first time she gets a taste of a normal teenage life. She longs to have both the boy and the gold, but stepping outside her bubble comes with a price. As Liza begins to question both her future and her past, can she stay focused on the present and realize her ultimate dream?

    "Cute figure skating romance"
    If you could sum up Gold Rush in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet skating romance


    What does Emily Stokes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really enjoyed the narrator's voice. She sounded like I wanted Liza to sound like in my mind!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it made me very unproductive because I couldn't stop listening! :)


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a sucker for first love stories, as well as sports-related stories, so this was perfect for me! I was actually bummed when it was over, the true sign of a good book!

    "A charming coming-of-age romance"

    What other book might you compare Gold Rush to and why?

    Titles in the Edge and Ice series!

    FULL REVIEW:<br/><br/>Note: This review contains NO spoilers<br/><br/>Well, I'm no stranger to stories by Jennifer Comeaux. So when I saw the opportunity to review another book by this amazing author, I signed up. Again, she has published yet another sweet Young Adult/New Adult romance in the world of ice skating. With characters that are familiar, especially if you have read titles in the Edge and/or Ice series, Gold Rush focuses on Liza Petrov's life as a skater, a young adult growing up, and a young woman learning about falling in love for the first time. Not only that, Emily Stokes, the narrator of this audiobook, does an amazing job telling this story.<br/><br/>Jennifer Comeaux, again, takes us into the world of competitive ice skating with these characters. Although this is a standalone novel, characters from her other series are intertwined into this new story. For fans familiar to the Edge and Ice series, much of the setting is recognizable. But this time, this world has been expanded with this new book. As for the characters, I found these simple, yet complex, characters likeable and funny. Although the dramatics throughout is subtle as the romance blossomed, it was enough realism for a young adult to relate to. Of course, there is no denying that Liza's passion for ice skating is apparent throughout even with the ups and downs of falling in love and growing up. Well, enough of that... Gold Rush is a sweet...I guess a coming-of-age... romance with a touch of a competitive edge to it that Jennifer Comeaux fans will enjoy.<br/><br/>Now, as for the narrator, Emily Stokes... I love how she takes the story and tells it in an animated voice. She even changes her tone and/or accents with different characters. With her animated storytelling, listening to this audiobook made it even more enjoyable. It is a great pairing, a good story and an animated narrator, that makes listening to this audiobook all worth while.<br/><br/>Gold Rush is a charming coming-of-age romance of a young girl with a competitive edge.<br/>

    "Sweet!"

    Really enjoyed this book. It is ver sweet and clean and it would be a good read for young teens and older readers like me who enjoys YA.
    I liked the narrator's voice, but she was slow at at times, and there were quite a few pauses and I could hear her breathing sometimes.
    I think the narration just needed a little "cleaning up" but overall a great book. I recommend it.

    This book was gifted to me and I volunteered to give a honest review.
