Today's teaser comes from On Thin Ice (Chesterford Coyotes #2)
Young Adult Hockey Romance.
Coming 20 October – https://rjscott.co.uk/read-OnThinIce
A shadow fell across my books, and I sighed, hoping to hell it wasn’t someone who wanted to talk to me, because this essay on evolutionary principals wasn’t going to write itself. I waited for the shadow to leave, or move, or something, but it seemed like I was waiting in vain, and finally, when I couldn’t ignore it any more, I glanced up.
My flight instinct kicked in, but eased almost immediately when I realized it was just Jonah and there was no sign of Miles. Talk about a Pavlov’s dog type reaction.
Jonah was mostly okay on his own, a bit of a dick for watching things go down, but okay when he was solo. Not that we talked because if we were on our own, he would move away to avoid me, and then scurry off in any opposite direction he could find. Only, here he was standing in the light and staring down at me, and I could see his mouth moving.
All I could hear was the chorus of Defying Gravity, and I gestured to my ears to indicate the buds under my layered pink hair.
He nodded and indicated I take them out. Fuck. If I removed them then I’d have to talk to him, and I didn’t have it in me to have a heated chat about whatever made Jonah look so determined.
He stared at me.
I stared back.
Then with a sigh I pulled out the buds and the song stopped.
A young adult hockey romance filled with making amends, family, friends, and discovering the real person inside while juggling the crazy, upside-down world of high school.
Jonah Robinson has really messed up. He’s spent the last year hanging out with someone who wasn’t leading him in a good direction. Now that Felix has seen the light, perhaps it’s time for Jonah to do the same. Making amends is not going to be easy when he’s not exactly been the nicest guy at Chesterford. With the help of his family and a special friend at the school, Jonah is ready to try to make things right with those he wronged. The first person on that long redemption list is Tyler, the brightest player on the Coyotes, at least in Jonah’s eyes. He’s taken a thousand pictures of Tyler for the school paper, but he’s going to have to learn how to develop more than just negatives if he wants to grow close to Tyler.
Tyler Corrigan’s dad has left, his mom is terrified he’ll come back, and it’s Tyler who’s left to keep his little family in one piece. The only respite from real life is playing hockey, and he’s an important part of the Chesterford Coyotes. Despite not being the biggest person on the ice, speed is his superpower, and the team has his back during the worst of the bullying he’s had to endure. His friends make him feel safe when his real world is full of fear, but no one can protect his heart when an awkward and messed up Jonah—one of the worst of his bullies—is suddenly around every corner, wanting to make things right.
Sorry can be a difficult word to believe, but trusting your heart is everything.More info →
