Now the two are "just friends," excluding the occasional flirtation. This friendly competition is bound to get heated—and they might end up igniting some old flames.
In honor of the first snowfall of the season here, I thought it would be fun to read a book with lots of winter and lots of snow. The Ex Games jumped out at me, because I have never read a snowboarding book. It was light-hearted, fluffy, and fun, but left me wishing I had been given more details and character development.
As always, my main points are bolded. The characters are likeable and sweet in their own ways. They made me giggle a little inside, but that was it.
I felt they were all rather one-dimensional and forgettable. There was so much needless drama in this story. I got rather frustrated. Hayden and Nick would have an intimate conversation and a little romance, and then all of a sudden one of them would say something the other one did not like, a major emotional explosion would happen, and someone would storm off and slam doors. This relationship was majorly bi-polar, and I started to get really annoyed.
The only reason they did not get together sooner was because they were being dumb. The romance was all based off of a shamble of a 7th grade relationship. So they were… what, 13 when this started? And the love was so strong that they chased each other for 4 years? I ended up making up my own ages for them, just because it made more sense that way. Young love is real, and I totally get that.
I felt like I was reading the same thing over and over again. Nick and Hayden were either arguing or making out. But that was not the only thing that happened over and over again. Someone tripped on the family dog, Doofus, sometimes twice on a page. Lots of time was spent on the slopes trying to talk Hayden into going off the jump.
Seriously, how many times must we read about her fear of heights? Lots of time was spent in a cafe talking. I swear, only 3 things happened in this book… just over and over again. While things are very predictable, it was a cute story with all the snow I was hoping for.
I loved the setting of the book. It sounded a bit like a resort town just up the mountain from where I live. It was cute and happy, but forgettable. Share this post:.

Kilimanjaro challenge. I wanted a quick romance read. This one definitely fit the bill, although the annoying factor was quite high as well. What I liked: it was sort of cute, and very snowboardy.
