    3.5 StarsWhen I started this book, I thought how cute movie star and ice skater As the story continued I was thinking this is cute a little story a little steam here and there Then I see it coming like a freight train I begin freaking out messaging Shannie you know because that is going to stop this mess.Let me warn you, one second things are moving along, the next shit has hit the fan and you wondering how shit will ever be put back together.This book isn t a huge mystery or suspense, but when [...]

    This book is somewhat of a departure from many romance novels On the surface it seems pretty standard perky ice skater teaches hunky but bad boy actor to skate for a movie role However, both characters have significant flaws that they really haven t addressed Amy almost made it to the Olympics but she took the brave step of getting out of the high pressured competitive skating world before it killed her She has been the star of a skating show for several years but old injuries and her age are ma [...]

    I was trolling on NetGalley the other night looking for something different I found this book and another called Impasse I read them both on the same night, along with Take a Chance on Me that same week and one theme rolled over in my mind bruised but not broken.Amy is deeper than I expected at first Her whole life was wrapped up in skating, and even now some nine years later, her life is still tied to skating She talks about her challenges being behind her but every now and then the reader lear [...]

  6. Sarah

    A romantic tale of a champion skater and Hollywood heartthrob just in time for the Olympics The one word I kept thinking as I read this book was INTENSE Despite everything she still loved him Didn t understand him, wanted to kill him, but she loved him There was a lot of drama for both characters, too much drama for one book I think the story could have been slowed down and spread out over a series of books, because at times I felt the plot movement was choppy Sometimes it would be the next day [...]

    ARC from NetGalley in Exchange for an honest review I liked that while the hero and heroine were perfect on the outside apparently genetic lottery winners, they were far from perfect deep down Both battling addictions and less than ideal family histories, they come together as part of a publicity stunt Despite the less than auspicious beginning, they manage to find friendship and an acceptance of sorts with each other The addictions and its consequences were catalogued quite deftly throughout th [...]

    A wonderful read.I got hooked on the skater and the Hollywood hunk concept and just needed to read this book to see what went down.There is an attraction between them when they first meet but as we find out with Shane this is a normal occurrence Shane puts the words player into player and everyone woman he meets turns into a fantasy of having sex with them and most of the time his fantasy turns into realityary Undernearth this always wanting sex we find out he actually is a good guy with a troub [...]

  11. Melinda Dozier

    Ms Cross grabbed my attention with the book blurb only A hot Hollywood heartthrob and a past Olympics ice skating hopeful Love the idea of hooking these two together I won t lie, though After the first chapter, my first thought was Wow do we want to like this I promise you will Don t let it stop you Through these tough chapters, we learn so much about the characters, which is one of Ms Cross s distinct writing talents shaping her characters and making the reader truly know them, inside and out.W [...]

  12. Neliey

    Amy is worried that she won t get signed again for the next season of Enchanted So when she gets a call to train Shane she thinks that it s a good way to get some publicity What starts off as a business arrangement turns into so much She wants Shane but is afraid to be with him because of his long line of women Shane should be the least of her worries when she ends up in the hospital How can she take care of him when she can t take care of herself Shane knew he should keep his relationship with [...]

  13. Kimberly

    Spiraling is not your typical romance story which is why I liked it and I am coming to love Rachel Cross s books Cross is not afraid to give her characters flaws that not only are outside the box, but that make them real This is Shane and Amy s story we have been introduced to Shane in Cross s previous books, but this is a completely stand alone book On the outside Amy looked like she had it all, and then gave up her Olympic dreams and now skates as a princess in an ice show Shane was part of a [...]

    The last thing former figure skating champion, Amelia Astor, wants to do is become a coach However, she has been given an offer she could not refuse to teach Hollywood actor Shane Marx to skate for a potential role in a hockey film Amelia was an interesting heroine She is nearing the end of her skating career and wants to perform one last season before she retires She struggled with personal issues that make her believable and endearing.Shane Marx has issues of his own, coming from nothing and t [...]

  15. P.e. lolo

    I did not know if I would like this story, but after a few chapters it kind of grew on me and actually got better as book went along Both of the main characters come from broken backgrounds and in their own ways help each other to find themselves at the end The story begins with Shane an actor who once was in a boy band and now cannot stay out of the tabloids and Amy, who everyone thought was going to win a gold medal at the Olympics only to quit right before She is now skating for a show and ha [...]

    I was very excited to receive this book from the giveaway This story was a enjoyable and light read I did, however, find the characters to be a bit clich Amy is a figure skater for an Ice Show Getting close to the point where her age and previous injuries are beginning to be a hindrance to her career, she must decide what she is going to do with the rest of her life Shane is a boy band star attempting to break into acting His next audition is for a role as a hockey player The only problem is, he [...]

  17. Romantic Reads and Such

    Spiraling is definitely not your typical romance and I was surprised at how difficult this book is to read Not because it was a bad story but because it dealt with some very serious issues Both Amy and Shane were very engaging I was drawn to them from the beginning but they both battle problems that, if they don t get control of them, will destroy their futures I really had fun getting to know them and seeing them get to know each other, but most importantly getting to know themselves It was dif [...]

  18. Kristi

    3.5 starsI found Spiraling to be a sporty, fun contemporary romance read despite the rather abrupt opener that I thought for certain was not going to be what I thought it was Cross managed to pack a lot of angst, sexual tension, sexual release, professional highs and lows, and personal issues on both sides into a relatively quick read I found the relationship believable and full of chemistry that was evident in the actions of the characters I appreciated the lack of what has seemed to me to be t [...]

  19. Jess F. (From Me to You ... Book Reviews)

    3 out of 5 stars Two lost souls find each other and start up a relationship that grows into something neither expected, while dealing with their own personal issues This novel was of a real Hollywood love story then I think I was ready for, as I was hoping for something a little romantic then this was Nevertheless, this fast paced novel keeps you on your toes and riveted while throwing twist after twist at you Read of this review and a teaser here frommetoyouvideophoto 2014 01 made grade spira [...]

  20. Michelle

    This book was filled with so much angst and turmoil that it was than just a romance The attraction between Shane and Amy was scorching, and Rachel Cross knows how to write a hot love story between tormented characters I didn t always like the things they did and said, but I believed in their feelings for each other I couldn t figure out how they were going to get their happy ever after, but they did and it was beautiful My only complaint was the abrupt ending I would have liked of a reunion sc [...]

  21. Monica Tillery

    I ll read anything Rachel Cross writes, and it s always nice when her new book reminds me of why Spiraling is an emotional, evocative romance, but it s also so much Cross bravely explores issues not often seen in your average romance, and she does it with a deft hand Two people find each other against all odds, clash, meld, heal each other, and somehow come out at the end battered and bruised but all the better after going through the journey together In Spiraling, you ll get the satisfying, ho [...]

  22. Jenny Schwartzberg

    I received this book as an eARC from NetGalley This story is about a former Olympic champion who is hired to teach a movie star how to skate so he can audition for a hockey player role in a movie They have their own separate emotional issues and butt heads as she teaches him how to skate The story shows how they slowly open up to each other and begin to fall in love This is a good look at how two deeply troubled people realize they can support each other and reach out for professional help I clo [...]

  23. Ashley

    So, this story itself wasn t bad at all, but the formatting, proofreading, and grammar mistakes drove me bananas I understand it s an ARC so here s hoping it gets better as the release date approaches.Cute story of Hollywood hunk meets ice skater Not a whole lot of substance, but a light, fun story anyways I wouldn t pay a ton of money for it, but it s worth checking out if you re looking for a quick, cute read Received an ARC for honest review.

  24. Angie

    I received an ARC from Netgalley for a honest review I have read and enjoyed other books by Rachel Cross, so I was excited to read Spiraling This book isn t quite like her others Spiraling is deep and emotional, with very heavy themes At times I didn t know whether I liked the characters or not They are flawed and fighting their own demons The story seemed to move quickly I did find my mind drifting towards the end and just wanting a resolution.

  25. Ashlinn Craven

    This is the best of Rachel Cross s books so far I loved the clever set up, the idea of a nearly there Olympian meeting a has been rock star and the way they progress from selfishness to selflessness within their blossoming relationship.ough blossoming is perhaps too flowery a word for this tough, truthful, sometimes painful love affair I loved the realism and the wry humour and the very memorable secondary characters My kind of romance

  26. Tracy Lundy-Munn

    Spiraling is the third book in the Rock Rhapsody series by Rachel Cross Again, another solid storyline with lots of twist and turns that had me hooked from beginning to end Loved the depth, emotion and chemistry that the characters had with each other Really a solid series that I would definitely recommend.

  27. Marsha Wright

    Thank you, Rachel Cross This was a different and difficult love story But, it does handle difficult issues I m not sure they are easy to resolve, but I m sure it is better with someone that loves you.

  28. Carla J

    sorry but so disappointing There was a lot of potential, but it went no where What drove Shane to sexual addiction answer How about the relationship of the Astors with Amy no real development Just not enough with lots of stories hanging there half developed.

  29. Celeste

    OMG This book is absolutely amazing Wow, I m at loss of words, the chemistry, witty humor, the heartache I m not sure this author is capable of writing anything less then amazing I am on high from this book.

  30. Pam

    I received this as a giveaway and wasn t disappointed It was a cute story with some nice romantic scenes It s not your traditional romance as there are some hotter sex scenes Overall a cute book with a fun plot I really loved the descriptions of the figure skating.
