Throughout our lives we've been told not to judge a book by it's cover, but I am guilty of that crime. Book covers are important, they're what we form our very first impressions on! I'm liking the cover for Off the Ice, it's look like the kind of thing I want to read!
Off the Ice by Julie Cross
Published: Spring 2016
Simon and Schuster
Junior Tate Tanley hasn't made it off the bench since joining the hockey team as a freshman. But after the Otter's star goalie leaves during a huge game, Tate's got the attention of the entire town. Including Claire O'Connor, who's mysteriously back in Juniper Falls and who he hasn't seen in a year. But Tate hasn't stopped thinking about Claire or what happened the night before she left.
Claire O'Connor should be enjoying college life in the big. Instead, she's serving drinks to hands fishermen and taking care of her sick father back in Juniper Falls. And when she spots her best friend's little brother, Tate, playing in a big varsity game, she's thrown for a loop. Tate has grown up a lot: more muscles, more hotness, more...everything. But Claire's responsibility is to her family, and she doesn't have time for boys — especially not hockey players.
As games, parties, and town drama throw Tate and Claire together, they can't ignore what happened last fall — and they can't ignore what's brewing between them now. It's finally time for them to unravel the secret of their past and face the future together.
