My Rating:
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?

My Review

Gold Rush in Three Words: Passionate. Endearing. Friendship.

Gold Rush was the perfect getaway read after a really long week of reading nonfiction texts for grad school. It charmed me from the very first page.

Liza's life is all about figure skating. She wants nothing more than to win Olympic gold. It's too bad she meets Braden, a sweet and hot guy that she has an immediate connection with. Life starts to get tricky, and she has to figure out a way to balance it all. I adored Liza and I enjoyed reading about her passion for skating. I know little about the sport, but had no trouble visualizing the amazing jumps and footwork Liza does. I also loved reading every scene staring Braden. These two kids were too cute for words. I felt like their actions and story could happen in real life and I loved that.

I smiled the entire time I was reading Gold Rush. Liza's passion and watching her figure out what she wants out of life gave me all the feels. I was so engrossed in her story that I sat down and read this book in one sitting. Gold Rush is filled with nail biting figure skating scenes, a little family drama, friendship, fun times, and some swoon-worthy moments.

The Verdict: Gold Rush is an adorable must read. I will be reading this author's other works.
