Primed to overthrow archrivals who dominate their sports, they’re both headed to the Winter Olympics. But soon after arriving at the Games, a flurry of ill-timed setbacks threatens to shatter their dreams.
When two teens from halfway around the world meet, they discover an unlikely but undeniable connection. As they gear up for their final shots at medals, they help each other realize the greatest barrier to the top of the podium might be hiding inside their minds.

BOOK REVIEW by VICKIE:
The Ice In Our Hearts - B C Powell
This is a wonderful story. I love the Olympics...
Learning more about them and some of the insights into what life is like for Olympians was awesome. I liked learning a bit about Russia too. The other thing I enjoyed a lot was learning more about T1D and Hyperhidrosis.
The characters are fabulous and they are all well-developed. It is easy to feel their emotions. Their dedication to their own sport plus their support for the other participants was great to see. The story brought tears to my eyes more than once.
There is also several beautiful romances in this story.
I really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it to others who enjoy romance, sacrifice and dedication to something they love.
I give this story a literary rating of 5/5
