Haley Stevenson seems like she’s got it all together: cheer captain, “Princess” of Juniper Falls, and voted Most Likely to Get Things Done. But below the surface, she’s struggling with a less-than-stellar GPA and still reeling from the loss of her first love. Repeating her Civics class during summer school is her chance to Get Things Done, not angst over boys. In fact, she’s sworn them off completely until college.

Fletcher Scott is happy to keep a low profile around Juniper Falls. He’s always been the invisible guy, warming the bench on the hockey team and moonlighting at a job that would make his grandma blush. Suddenly, though, he’s finding he wants more: more time on the ice, and more time with his infuriatingly perfect summer-school study partner.

But leave it to a girl who requires perfection to shake up a boy who’s ready to break all the rules.

Each book in the Juniper Falls series is STANDALONE:
* Off the Ice
* Breaking the Ice
* On Thin Ice

Praise

"...A companionable and realistic rendering of teen courtship." – Kirkus Reviews

5 stars:  "I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN. It has been a while since I’ve rooted for characters as hard as I rooted for Fletch and Haley, but I couldn’t help myself. I loved them both so so much, and they were both super unique." –Taylor Clenin, Goodreads Reviewer

4.5 stars: "Love love loved Haley and Fletcher. She’s sweet and the town princess and maybe a bit nosy. He’s guarded and smart and has some secrets. Together they have a delightful push and pull that wasn’t too drama-y. Oh and the UST is practically palpable." –Stacee Evans, Adventures of a Book Junkie

5 stars: "This was definitely a hit. Everything about this books makes it worth reading." –Lauren Brown, Escape to Reading

This is the second Julie Cross book that I'm reading, and by what I've read so far I can say that what she does best when it comes to writing is make it feel incredibly honest.

This is the second in a series of standalone teen romances and has ‘real’ teen characters, flaws and all.

What a great YA romance this was. I adored every minute and can't wait to see who is next in the Juniper Falls world. I thought Fletch and Haley's complicated romance was sweet and super swoony. I shipped them hard and it was good to see Haley really grow into her own. She's heaps better than she... ...more

It was fun being back in Juniper Falls, and I couldn't have asked for a better couple to spend my time with. They may have appeared to be an unlikely match, but Haley and Fletcher were perfect together.

Breaking the Ice was such a feel good and romantic book. I really needed a "pick me up" type of book to put me in a sunny mood, and this was the perfect book. Breaking the Ice had romance, drama, family relationships, and self-discovery. There were so many wonderful story elements all weaved together i...
