Skater's Waltz, by Peggy Jaeger

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Figure skater Tiffany Lennox is busy with rehearsals for an upcoming ice show when the only man she’s ever loved comes home after a two-year overseas stint. She needs him to see her for the woman she’s become and not the child he knew to ensure he stays home, this time, for good. With her.
For all his wanderlust and hunger for professional success, Cole Greer comes home wanting nothing more than to rest, relax and recover. He is delighted in being Tiffany’s hero and has a special place in his heart reserved for her. But faced with the oh-so-desirable woman she’s become, he starts questioning his determination to keep their relationship platonic.
When forced by the television network to go back on assignment, Cole - for the first time in his life - is torn between his career and his heart.
I think this book deserves a different, more emotional cover because the current one doesn't do it justice. The chemistry between the main characters crackles with electricity and the tension from the subplot kept me turning pages well past my bedtime. This was a fun, fast romance about two friends who were always destined to be so much more.
Olympic medalist Tiffany Lennox has traveled the world and brought home the gold twice, but journalist Cole Greer still sees her as the bratty kid who dogged his every move when they were young. He even still calls her "Brat," although it's an affectionate nickname. Finally home after a two year stint reporting from war torn Sudan, Cole is confronted with the reality of his true feelings for Tiffany, and conflicted on whether to act on them. Sticking with the old status quo gets harder as her life is threatened and Cole's protective instincts kick in full force.
Author Peggy Jaeger writes with feeling and heart, making the reader root for the characters to find their way to each other. The secondary characters added color and dimension to this sweet and sizzling love story. A thoroughly enjoyable read, I will be looking for more books from this author for my summer reading list!
