It’s not a place for the weak.
No one here tolerates wimps.
If you can’t handle it, leave.
Welcome to Stark Springs, Colorado, home to the most talented young athletes in the world. When Roxie Slade snaps into a pair of skis, there’s no one on Sugarville Mountain in Vermont who can keep up with her. Not even the boys. Still, Roxie was shocked when she received a scholarship to Stark Springs Academy, a boarding school that churns out Olympians in each graduating class. Entering as a high school junior, Roxie can’t wait to learn from renowned coaches and train with the fastest ski racers from all over the globe. But upon arrival, Roxie discovers that Stark Springs lives under its own set of rules, and it appears one boy plays dictator.
Ryker Black is not friendly and Roxie cannot fathom why everyone wants to be his friend. Sure, he’s gorgeous and rides a snowboard like it’s his fifth limb, but he’s cold, ruthless, and holds way too much power over the Stark Springs population. Roxie won’t put up with it. She’s here to train, and she doesn’t care about impressing anyone off the slopes. The only problem? Ryker Black doesn’t permit defiance. Not without consequences.
Skiing Academy sounds fun!
This book is a series about Roxie a skiing prodigy from east coast and Ryker the bad boy of Stark Springs. Roxie gets a scholarship to Stark Spring Boarding School for skiing. She meets some interesting characters all top notch in their selected sport. Sparks fly between Ryker and Roxie right away. Ryker is king of the school and everyone seems to do what he says, except Roxie. Roxie has to adjust to being a little fish in a big pond at the school and she does quite well. She also is very good at keeping Ryker's attention which puts her in the line of fire sometimes. This is the first book in the series and having read the other books, I can tell you it keeps getting better. Leanne does a wonderful job with narration and Ali Dean is just amazing. Definitely get this book. #Audio Obsession Reviewer.
