Uptight Olympic skier recovering from career-threatening injury meets ageing (30!), party-loving Olympic snowboarder. Skier has amazing eyes and nice strong legs. Snowboarder has amazing abs. Snowboarder has matured into a responsible adult, if only the socially inept skier would realise it. Skier has minimal personality, but the snowboarder doesn’t ever seem to realise that (she has an angsty upbringing and single-minded drive instead).
The story takes us through training and all the way to the Tokyo 2018 Olympics, and I enjoyed the sense of training and coaching relationships that go around the edges of these things. Will the relationship survive the pressure of Tokyo? Why did they ever think it was a good idea to try? This and other questions should be cheerfully squashed to the back of your mind while you enjoy the romantic abandon of the way this book ends.
