Everyone loves him...except her.
Everyone loves hockey superstar Pierce Miller. Everyone except Lia Bailey.
When the two are forced to teach a skating class to save the rink, Lia’s not sure she’ll survive the pressure of Nationals and Pierce’s ego. Not only can’t he remember her name, he signed her bottle of water like she was one of his groupies. Ugh.
But if there’s one thing Lia knows better than figure skating, it’s hockey. Hoping to take his ego down a notch—or seven—she logs into his team website under an anonymous name to give him pointers on his less-than-stellar playing.
Turns out, Pierce isn’t arrogant at all. And they have a lot in common. Too bad he’s falling for the anonymous girl online. No matter how much fun they’re starting to have in real life, she’s afraid he’s going to choose fake-Lia over the real one…
Disclaimer: This book contains a swoony hockey player (and his equally swoony friends!), one-too-many social media accounts, kisses that’ll melt ice, and a secret identity that might not be so secret after all…
"This is a sweet romantic story with heart. It focuses on family and support of friends. It also touches on the idea that sometimes in life we need that extra love and support from unexpected places." -Sarah Bittel, Educator at Canisteo-Greenwood CSD
5 stars: "I honestly love this story, I can't stop thinking about it.

Everything was on point, especially the chemistry between the main characters." -Hristina Petrov, I'll Be Fine Alone Reads
5 stars: "Loved it!" -Cheyanne Young, author of the Motocross Me series
5 stars: "Love this well written and fun YA novel. Great characters will draw readers in and have them eagerly turning pages to find out what happens next.

Very believable. Definitely recommend!" -Kristen Cambensy, Victim of Books
5 stars: "The plot of the book is mesmerizing and very well written and the ending is absolutely perfect. I could not put this book down until I reached the very last page." -Cassie James, author of Queen of Fire

5 stars: "This book ticked all the right boxes for me: sports romance, sweet teen story with more than meets the eye, and opposites attract." -D.M. Duncan, author of The Frosted Moon
5 stars: "I will admit up front I'm not usually a fan of YA romance. Maybe that is because I'm older and have a bit of trouble relating to being 18 again, but this book was really good." -Michelle Eriksen, Literature Lighthouse
5 stars: "Such sweet first love! These books gives teenagers the idea of how love should be." -Amber Carroll, Amber's World of Books
5 stars: "'Toe pick!' When I read the synopsis for All Laced Up of course I flashed back to the greatest figure skating/hockey movie of all time, The Cutting Edge. While the novel's story is definitely unique, it is just as swoonworthy and romantic as The Cutting Edge." -Eva Scalzo, Definitely, Possibly, Maybe
All Laced Up was short, sweet, and every bit of predictable I expected it to be, but it was no less adorable and satisfying nonetheless. This story was a purely cute, humorous romance that developed at the right pace and made me smile so widely watching it progress.
I don't know why, but I've been... ...more

I adored the characters. Lia was sassy but shy at the same time. I loved how she encouraged Pierce, and in return he encouraged her. Pierce was a sweet guy. I loved how he opened up to Lia. Together they were cute.

And I don't know why but this cute little book I think got me out!!! (Hopefully I'm not talking to soon...)
