    Description

    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.

    Intriguing!

    This is the first book in the Stark Springs Academy Trilogy. Roxie and Ryker's story is original, and fast paced, and twisted. Roxie is strong and smart. Ryker is enigmatic and powerful. Looking forward to listen to the next installment. Leanne Woodward did a nice job with the narration. #AudiobookObsession

    4/5

    Black Diamond is the first book in Stark Springs Academy a boarding school for athletes who participate in winter sports. Roxie is new and and it's weird for athletes/students to start their junior year. I enjoyed the mystery elements of who Ryker Black is. He controls the school but it seems his power is far more reaching. I got sucked into the story of suspense, mean girls, athletes and blossoming relationships. I liked how Roxie wasn't afraid to stand up for herself and called out wrongs. I look forward to the rest of this series and what happens between Roxie and Ryker.

    I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

    A fun start to the series

    In the very beginning, I wasn't so sure about this book, but it didn't take long to hook me. I love that Ali Dean writes female athletes that can hold their own. There is always a bit of mystery with a dash of suspense that keeps me reading for more. As with all of Ali's books, I really enjoyed the side characters as well as the main characters. Roxie has a big personality, and I can't wait to see what else she brings us. I'm intrigued by Ryker and looking forward to more of his story!

    The narration for this story was well done. Leanne Woodward has an enjoyable voice, and did a good job taking on the action and emotion of this story.

    I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of this series!

    love it

    Stark Academy, is the elite boarding school for winter sports. The best of the best attend there by invitation only. Many of the athletes go on to compete in the Olympics. It is expected to obey all the rules, not the handbook. The ones given by Ryker Black. He is considered the best snowboarder and heir to the Black fortune. Roxie Slade was surprised she received a full ski scholarship. She's there to train, to improve her skiing skills.But Ryker gets under her skin by all his rules. Ryker and his crew make it difficult for newbies just to see if they can make the cut. When Ryker shows any attention to Roxie, the mean girls in his crew, retaliated by playing a mean dangerous prank on her. Ali Dean has a great start to another sports series!
    Leanne Woodward is a very good narrator. I enjoyed lIstening. 🎧auduobookobessionreviewer🎧

    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.
