It was expecting a sweet story but sadly it was just so stereotypical. He was suppose to care and protect her but he could not stand to be around her as he was attracted to her.
Still he would not allow her to be with others. He was always saying to her "I am losing patience with you" when he was the problem.
To help diffuse the situation he invites his mistress to come an live with them. As they live together! So wrong and gross here! I was Mad as hell, as she is pushing for sex knowing that his mistress is still sleeping with him.
She even tell him how she likes his mistresses? As he has had many thought out the years and she has known them!
WTH is wrong with this bitch in heat! Omg I will never read this horrible book again. View all 22 comments.

Hero is a gold medalist figure skater who met the heroine when she was six and he was twenty.
He knew then that she was the one for him. Got some Twilight imprinting happening here Fast forward 14 years? Her parents died when she was 8 and the hero petitioned to be her guardian.
Until she was 14, she lived with him at the family mansion and he was her skating coach. Hero realized heroine was interested in Ice skating! Hero realized heroine was interested in him romantically , and he immediately got her a different coach and sent her away to train. So for the past six years he has been loving her from afar.
He tells her all of this by page The heroine is ready to take their relationship to the next level - so what's the problem that will keeps us reading? Hero has intimacy issues. Heroine has to find her joy in skating again. There are some hot sex scenes for a category and lots of psychoanalyzing and lots of skating descriptions. I like all three of those things, but if a moody hero bothers you, you might not like this one. Really the guy is no ray of sunshine Same with the skating.
I enjoyed it - but it is a big part of the story outside of the romance. Hero is the only ice skater I've ever heard of who has a malaria relapse. Yes, malaria and ice skating. He was touring South America with the Ice Capades and contracted it.
Heroine was a virgin. Hero was not celibate while he was waiting for the heroine to grow up. View all 17 comments. Shelves: psycho-jealous-protective-possessiv , ick-factor. I feared this would be too icky for me, but it turned out to be pretty fun. I really enjoyed the first half of this, in which Anthony is delightfully obsessed and insistent, yet tender and loving.
But the more mature, realistic second half doesn't really blend with the first. This was really more of a three, three and a half stars tops, but Johansen deserves at least a half point for the amazing feat of making a male figure skater seem sexy. View all 8 comments.

I began my review still reading it. You may even find it impossible. There are other things that we can give each other. I thought I had made a complete fool of myself. One of the heroines was raped by her figure skating couch.
On the other hand, I was in love with 30 years old man when I was Of course it was infatuation only but I looked and felt like Luckyly, I was so shy to express my feelings. This should be taken into account. That frightens me, Dany. No game playing, no wariness, just honesty. He also confessed about his mistress at the same day, not at the end of the book.
She was totally nude. Beau, Marta, Kowalt, me. We all have to make up for the affection and attention you never received from your parents.
And she went to Calgary. The competition began. View all 3 comments. As Dany is about to compete in the Olympics, something that has been her lifelong dream- the tension between her and Anthony, who has taken care of her since she was a child and trained her to be what she is now reaches its pinnacle and soon unrequited love explodes.

With the Olympics just weeks away, an extraordinary contest of wills has begun.
