Title: Fighting for the Edge (Edge #3)
Author: Jennifer Comeaux
Publication Date: November 5, 2013

Two friends. Two dreams. One night that changes everything…

Ice dancer Aubrey London scoffs at romance. She’s focused on winning a medal at the upcoming Olympics and uses that as her excuse to avoid serious relationships. But when she and longtime friend Chris Grayden are thrown together by unforeseen circumstances, Aubrey finds herself questioning everything she's ever known about love, complicating her life both on and off the ice.

Pairs skater Emily Petrov embraces romance. She and her husband Sergei still act like honeymooners two years after their wedding. As Emily’s coach, Sergei provides constant support while she prepares to challenge for gold at the Olympics. But Sergei’s support might not be enough to help Emily overcome the one challenge she never saw coming.

With the Games only weeks away, Emily and Aubrey are on the verge of realizing their dreams. But one snowy, stormy night sets in motion a series of events that will test them in ways they never imagined, giving them more to fight for than Olympic medals.

Excerpt:
     Aubrey’s cell chirped from the kitchen, and she rose to check it. She read the text as she carried the phone to the table.
     “You’d think the fact that I haven’t responded to any of this guy’s messages would tell him I’m not interested, but he keeps texting me.”
     “Who is he?”
     “Just a guy I met at the gym. He’s hot as all get-out, but we went to dinner and all he talked about was his ex. No amount of hotness could get me past that.”
     Chris’s forehead wrinkled. “Is this what I have to look forward to on the dating scene?”
     “Oh, yeah, we were talking about how you’re gonna be a playboy when the lights went out. Haven’t you only ever had serious girlfriends?”
     “One throughout high school and then Marley. But since I got dumped both times, I figure it’s time to try something new.”
     Aubrey studied him through the dim candlelight. With his warm brown eyes and lightly-freckled ivory cheeks, Chris perfectly fit the image of “the boy next door.” And it wasn’t just his looks that made him a great catch. She’d seen how he’d treated Marley all the years they were together – like she was the most precious thing in the world.
     “I don’t know if you’re capable of being a casual dater.” She tilted her head to one side. “I think you’re the type of guy who falls hard and fast for a girl and wants her all to yourself.”
     “Well, you make staying single look easy. Maybe you need to tell me your secret.”
     “If a guy starts getting clingy, I let him know I’m not looking for anything serious. Having the ‘I’m training for the Olympics’ excuse makes it a lot easier.”
     “You think girls will fall for that excuse too?”
     “Once they get a look at your abs, they won’t care what lines you feed them.”
     Chris sat back in his chair and grinned. “So, you’ve been checking me out.”
     She smirked. “You know you’re in great shape.”
     A car alarm sounded in the distance, and its wailing filled the silence as they turned back to their plates. Chris chewed with a pensive look. “How come it feels like we’re talking for the first time when I’ve known you for seven years?”
     “Probably because we’ve never hung out… just the two of us. Mar was always around or Nick or Em…”
     “We should hang out more often. You can be my wing woman and teach me all the finer points of serial dating.”
     “I gladly accept that position.” She smiled and lifted her water.
     Chris raised his bottle. “To keeping things casual.”
     She tapped her drink to his. “And Bah Humbug to relationships!”
