The Ice in Our Hearts
by BC Powell
Publication date: August 20th 2020
Genres: Romance, Sports, Young Adult

Bryce is a snowboarding sensation, a cocky teenager from California with a giant chip on his shoulder called Type 1 diabetes. He competes because he has something to prove.
Daria is a rising star in figure skating, a withdrawn teen from Russia with a tragic past. She competes to provide her family with a better life.
Primed to overthrow archrivals who dominate their sports, they’re both headed to the Winter Olympics. But soon after arriving at the Games, a flurry of ill-timed setbacks threatens to shatter their dreams.
When two teens from halfway around the world meet, they discover an unlikely but undeniable connection. As they gear up for their final shots at medals, they help each other realize the greatest barrier to the top of the podium might be hiding inside their minds.
Take a breathtaking ride with Bryce and Daria as they find true understanding, try to overcome the bitterness of their pasts, and share a romance more meaningful than winning gold.

Written by the parent of a child with Type 1 diabetes.



BC Powell is a fantasy author from Los Angeles, CA. Described as “a stunning fantasy adventure,” “incredibly original,” and “a wild ride,” his debut science fiction fantasy novel “Krymzyn” was published in October, 2014. “The Infinite Expanse”, the highly anticipated second book in “The Journals of Krymzyn” series, was released in March, 2015.

Powell has a diverse background, having held several creative positions in the entertainment industry, including an executive role at ABC-TV, but writing fiction has been his lifelong passion. “The Journals of Krymzyn” represents, in his words, “finally finding the amazing story I want to tell with characters who are able to bring the story to life.”

He dual majored in journalism and philosophy at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. When he’s not writing, he can often be found hiking the hills of Southern California, daydreaming on the beach, or ocean kayaking. He credits his three sons, two currently in college and one in high school, as his inspiration for writing in the new adult genre.

*I received a Reading Copy copy in exchange for an honest review.

I really have to say that I liked this book very much. I also have to admit that sometimes it was hard for me to picture all the pro movements that Bryce and Daria performed through the author's descriptions. Many technical names of those who clearly understand a lot about both sports that are the focus and life of these two fantastic teenagers.
Daria, a teenager of only fifteen, a professional figure skater, lives in Russia and Bryce of seventeen, a snowboard professional, in the United States of America. Even though he is half Russian, on the part of his mother.
There was nothing to predict that these two teenagers, separated by half the world, could be half of each other. She is a shy girl but full of talent and strength. She has a short past, but already marked by the pain of loss and the suffering she shares with her mother because they no longer have the person they loved most with them. He, although not guilty, deals with a terrible illness, which prevents him from living a normal life, like any teenager his age. You have Type 1 Diabetes and daily, you have to be discerning and careful to always be with the regulated and perfect levels. For a young man of only seventeen, it is not easy to have to deal with such a task that implies so much responsibility and that ends up taking away half the joy of living and practicing the sport he loves so much.
However, none of this prevented him from becoming a professional and being asked to go to the Winter Olympics in Beijing. Daria is also one of those selected to represent her country and from there until they met and started to live their days in that country of the East, always getting to know each other and learning how to overcome all their ghosts and traumas that prevents them from being more and better both in their personal lives and in the sports they chose to practice.
They are two lovely and mature young people for their age and together they are absolutely perfect. One would expect them to think that, after the Olympic games, the falling in love would gradually disappear, but on the contrary, the love of these two characters was born to last throughout the years that they were going to be forced to spend apart.
I loved all the characters and the way the author gave us, I believe, a small picture of what it's like to live with the problem that Bryce has and how, even so, we have to be grateful to be alive and to be able to love and be loved, no only for our romantic person, but also for our family and friends.

I recommend :)
