Gold Rush by Jennifer Comeaux ***Audiobook Review****

Gold Rush

Gold Rush

ebook, 338 pages
Published January 9th 2017 

4.5 out of 5 Monkeys Fun Read for sure
Gold Rush is the story of a pro ice skater Liza Petrov who is completely focused on her career never really noticing guys until Braden Patrick comes along.  A business major he makes her heart flip flop right from the start.  Although not insta love it is close. Their relationship is so adorable and wants to show Liza a real college experience.  But when it seems it might be effecting her skating she tells Braden it is better to be friends at least until after the Olympics.  Of course him being a perfect book boyfriend despite wanting more tells her that is fine.  They still chat and she even when trying to pull herself away keeps getting drawn back.  Their chemistry is amazing and even as friends he remains loyal and her biggest supporter.  He does everything a good boyfriend would do without the title.  

This read is so much fun and I loved the dynamic between not only Liza and Braden but all the side characters as well.  It was extremely fun and easy to read.  I would recommend this as a summer fun read for a road trip.  It also is very clean the only thing really is underage drinking (which does place at a couple college party scenes) but overall would be ok for a 13 year old to read.  The only think I do wish though was there was some extra features (even on the webpage) for us to see in Braden's head.  I would love just a short glimpse into his mind.  Also just for it to be a little less cliche this is fun read but just everything working the same as 3000 other stories.

5 out of 5 Bananas
 Emily Stokes I really did feel was well cast for Liza.  She had the right feeling of the angst as well as the pressure to succeed.  I enjoyed listening and quickly finished. 

 I was provided a copy of this audio book in exchange for an unbiased review.
