Life on the Edge, Edge of the Past: Review

From Goodreads:
Nineteen-year-old Emily is new to pairs skating, but she and her partner Chris have a big dream–to be the first American team to win Olympic gold. Their young coach Sergei, who left Russia after a mysterious end to his skating career, believes they can break through and make history.

Emily and Chris are on track to be top contenders at the 2002 Winter Games. But when forbidden feelings spark between Emily and Sergei, broken trust and an unexpected enemy threaten to derail Emily's dreams of gold.

From Goodreads:
Emily's skating career and personal life have never been more golden. She and her partner Chris have won every competition they've entered this season, and she's found the man of her dreams in her coach Sergei. But when one of the biggest competitions of the year takes Emily and Sergei to Russia, Sergei's past explodes into the present and makes Emily doubt everything in their future.

My Review:
These 2 books, they had incredible romance, and a lot of conflict because of that romance, in that they were coach and student, which is against the rules, but yeah, it was just really great to read them! They were really great characters, and great books!

I really enjoyed the relationship between them, it's the big thing, and while it does cause them a lot of conflict, they do fight for their relationship, and I really enjoyed that! It was worth fighting for, even as they were working through their issues!

It did suck that they didn't get the gold in the first book. But then there was the second book, going to Russia, when it was most likely the Russian team that had gotten the gold, so they could have a rematch of sorts. And that was really great!

I really enjoyed where they got to by the end of Past, because they were happy, on their honeymoon. And I think I would really love a 3rd book, but I don't want them to go through more conflict, so I'm conflicted!

Really great series, and I'd love to read more of it!
