Brooke Parker never expected to find herself in the tiny town of Juniper Falls, Minnesota. Of course, she also never expected to lose her dad. Or for her mom to lose herself. Brooke feels like she’s losing it…until she finds Juniper Falls hockey. Juniper Falls girls’ hockey, that is.

Jake Hammond, current prince of Juniper Falls, captain of the hockey team, and player with the best chance of scoring it big, is on top of the world. Until one hazing ritual gone wrong lands him injured, sitting on the sidelines, and—shocking even to him—finding himself enjoying his “punishment” as assistant coach for the girls’ team.

As Jake and Brooke grow closer, he finds the quiet new girl is hiding a persona full of life, ideas, and experiences bigger and broader than anything he’s ever known. But to Jake, hockey’s never just been a game. It’s his whole life. And leveraging the game for a shot at their future might be more than he can give.

It’s no secret, I’m totally in love with Julie Cross’s books. Her characters always come with quirky personalities and I just can’t resist them.

Jake Hammond is the captain of Juniper falls hockey team and towns the crowned prince. He’s not what I expected and he’s very swoon-worthy. Jake is all abo ...more

After a near fatal accident, Jake begins to question some of the traditions surrounding Otter hockey, but is Jake willing to risk his future to challenge traditions that have endured for over 100 years?

Julie Cross continues her Juniper Falls series with On Thin Ice, a young adult, sports romance that perfectly blends first love angst, a dash suspense and a sprinkle of exciting hockey.

Jake Hammond had it all. The fame, the captain title and the best shot at continuing his hockey career. Until a ce ...more

On Thin Ice is the romantic and sensational third book in the Juniper Falls series. Ice hockey, scintillating romance, heartbreaking family troubles, strong friendship and a soul searching story about standing up for what’s right, On Thin Ice has all the pieces to create a captivating story which I ...more

Brooke’s life has fallen apart and she’s been uprooted from Texas to her grandmother’s home in Juniper Falls. Her mother is a shell of the person she used to be and Brooke feels totally on her own in this hockey-obsessed town. When she witnesses a hazing ritual that goes too far, she has local hocke ...more

I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review.

I have liked the other books in the Juniper Falls series, but I really loved On Thin Ice. It completely surpassed my expectations and I enjoyed it so much that I already want to re-read it.

I found both Jake and Brooke reall ...more

By Kate January 11, 2019

This is the 3rd book in the Juniper Falls series. I haven’t read the other books in the series, but I still think this is a standalone. The other couples in the other books do show up in this one, and I liked them so much I will probably go back and read the other ones.

The book starts with a hockey ...more

By Bookgasms January 08, 2019

Full disclosure: I didn't realize that this was the third book in a series when I picked it up, but I'm happy to say that it reads like a true standalone. I had no problem connecting with Brooke and Jake's story, and didn't feel like I was missing any puzzle pieces. In fact, it wasn't until the very ...more

By Taylor February 23, 2019

Have I mentioned how much I love this series?? I was so excited when I heard the series would be continuing with On Thin Ice and the yummy Jake Hammond.

Brook is the new girl, the quiet girl with the messed up past and the screwed up parents, neither of which she wants to talk about. But that's okay, ...more

**I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. This is a voluntary review; all opinions are my own and not influenced by my source.**

This was the Juniper Falls story I was waiting for the most and it did not disappoint!

Brooke and Jake share a terrible secret: Jake takes the fall for a near fatal drowning during a hazing incident for the freshman hockey players on their high school team. I was extremely proud of the way the young people in this story banded together to try to fight the corruption and unethical beha ...more

By Colleen January 05, 2019

First off, I have to be honest here, I don't think the blurb was accurately written. I thought I was getting into a sweet, YA romance that would deal with some harder things (the blurb does mention a hazing thing gone wrong), but mostly skirt over the real issue and ultimately end up being a quick r ...more

I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.

4.5 stars — Dude, if this is the end of the series, I’m going to be really sad. Each story has been a fascinating look at hockey in a small town, and this one just b ...more

By Melissa (YA Book Shelf) March 11, 2019

On Thin Ice is a YA sports romance, the third book in the Juniper Falls trilogy, by Julie Cross. It’s also a novel that I’ve been highly anticipating ever since finishing Breaking the Ice last year. And the conclusion to the series didn’t disappoint.

That’s not to say I wasn’t surprised that the fin ...more

By Kristi Housman January 23, 2019

On Thin Ice is the third book in the Juniper Falls series.  You can easily read each book as a standalone, but I recommend reading them in order.  The third book talked about stuff that happened in the other books and there are characters that appear in each one.  

Jake is a local hockey star.  It's ...more

Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

Can I just start by saying how disappointed I am in myself for not reading a book by Julie Cross until now? I have seen several rave reviews for her Juniper Falls series in the past. I always wanted to read ...more

I have read all of the companion books to this one in the Juniper Falls series by Julie Cross and this one far exceeded all the rest ( which I enjoyed quite a bit). What made this one even better was the depth of the story and the topics is touched on that I wasnt expecting. This wasnt just another ...more

If you asked me to name you a YA author who is constantly churning out quality books, hands down I would put Julie Cross at the top of that list. Between her Juniper Falls series (read my reviews for Breaking the Ice and Off the Ice) and her Eleanor Ames series (read my review for both Chasing ...more

He discovers that there is more to life then hockey as he gets to know the ne ...more

I was completely obsessed with this book from page one. I read book one in this series and felt that the middle dragged out a bit, that was 100% not the case with this book. I couldn’t put it down – I’m already excited to read the next book in the series.

Brooke has had her life completely flipped up ...more
