From The Book Junkie Reads . . . Getting it Back (Red Hot Russians, #3) . . .Text message dump??? Then a second chance at a figure skating title and love. A sweet contemporary sports romance with more at stake than the next championship. Will this result in love or gold?
Misha (Mikhail Zaikov) once possessed the riches of a man on the road to success and happiness in love. Events set in motion takes most of it away from him. He throws away the other. Life hits him hard in the time that he has spent wanting to forget. A chance call in the middle of the night brings back some of what this now broken man once had.
Amy has now gotten her life back on track and has endured the smothering aspects of her family. She has peace now. All up to the point of that phone call. But being the person she is. Amy will not turn her back on a friend (former lover). She was made of more and was going to show him.
This was a sweet telling of second changes. Not just at love but to live and regain a feeling of self. Self-worth. Self-respect.
There was some things that kept you going but there were those that should have had you but you got lost. I found moments of 'please get to the point'. Harmon gave a read that was enjoyable overall.
