Gold Rush by Jennifer Comeaux
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?
Gold Rush by Jennifer Comeaux is a young adult romance novel set in the world of Olympic hopeful Liza Petrov. Liza has never kissed anyone or had a date. Her whole life has revolved around ice skating. But once she meets Braden, she imagines a life full of normal activities. Focusing on Braden affects her focus on skating.
I listened to the audiobook of this story narrated by Emily Stokes. I enjoyed her narration. She made the story believable. This was a fun, somewhat predictable, YA romance. I liked getting to learn so much about the world of figure skating. I’ve never read a sports romance about skating or the Olympics. I would definitely read another book by this author…and I would definitely listen to another book narrated by this narrator.
