  • Stacee
    4.5 starsI loved the synopsis of this one and was really eager to get to it. Love love loved Haley and Fletcher. She’s sweet and the town princess and maybe a bit nosy. He’s guarded and smart and has some secrets. Together they have a delightful push and pull that wasn’t too drama-y. Oh and the UST is practically palpable. Plot wise, it wasn’t quite what I expected. Every time I thought I knew where the story was going, it went somewhere ...

    So in love with these two chapters! You need this book. It's funny, lovable and I'm totally addicted.Breaking the Ice is book two in the Juniper Fall series. We met Hayley in book one, however, both books are standalone stories and can be read on their own. This one is more fun and less intense than Off the Ice.Hayley is Queen Bee, Juniper falls raining princess and captain of the cheerleaders. She is a stereotypical character and loveable. She's...

    It was fun being back in Juniper Falls, and I couldn't have asked for a better couple to spend my time with. They may have appeared to be an unlikely match, but Haley and Fletcher were perfect together. Full review to follow. *I would like to thank the publisher for the advanced copy of this book.

    *** I received an ARC of this book in order to provide an honest review ***This was your standard dorky guy/cheerleader storyline - except it was really different. Fletcher is kind of the nerdy, lay-low guy in school...but...he has hidden depths. Reasons for wanting out of the limelight. And a big secret about how he's a star after all. And Haley may be the town Princess, but her crown is askew. She has issues that indicate perhaps she's "dorkier...

    Breaking the Ice is another wonderful installment of the Juniper Falls Series.Let's just say this. I am obsessed with this series. Seriously. obsessed. However, for some odd reason, I ended up liking it a little less than Off the Ice.I mean don't get me wrong this is good. It's really good. But I was left with a few questions and the end kinda felt a bit rushed. (a tiny bit)I found that I didn't have enough closure after this one. Not sure if tha...

  • Olivia Farr
    "Breaking the Ice" is a great contemporary YA romance about Haley and Fletcher, told in alternating viewpoints. Haley and Fletcher are taking a Civics class over the summer; Haley is taking it to improve her GPA (hopefully) and Fletcher so that he can fill his schedule with more advanced classes during the next school year. They end up sitting next to each other in the class, and although Haley doesn't really remember him, they go back to prescho...

    Once again, Julie Cross delivers with a light-hearted, yet deeply emotional story that is so much fun. Sport, romance, coming of age, friendship, family, fears and dreams all come together in a story that lets you sink in to it and happily stay awhile. No matter how many Julie Cross books I have read and loved, still she surprises me with characters that are deeply layered and stereotype-defying, and romance that just knocks my socks off.Haley St...

    Breaking the Ice is the second book in Julie Cross' Juniper Falls series and it's just as good as the first one. I was happy to see quite a few familar characters back again.First I should mention that there is swearing, sex, and teenage drinking in this book. So if that bothers you, it's probably best to skip it. Breaking the Ice is told in alternating chapters by Fletcher and Haley. I adored Haley. She's a cheerleader, Juniper Falls princess, a...

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC copy!A longer review will come but just let me tell you that you don't want to miss out on Fletcher and Haley's story. It had me wrapped in it's charming claws from the first page until the very last, giving me dark circles cause I couldn't put it down even if it was 4AM. Haley and Fletcher have perhaps the most refreshing, realistic and respectful relationship I've ever read. ...

    ****Thanks to Netgalley****3.5 StarsHaley and Fletcher shouldn't work on paper but boy oh boy do they work off of paper!!! I loved the hesitation and fears that Cross wrote about when this two decide to really try to make it something. When Haley and Fletcher first start to fall for one another you know that it isn't going to be easy for either of them...the only issue I had with this book is I wished I had read the first in this series to get mo...

    I have thoroughly enjoyed Julie Cross's sports contemporary novels thus far, but this book fell slightly short of her usual standard. It was cute and fluffy, but Fletcher's reason for not dating seemed very flimsy (I still don't understand it), and I wasn't convinced that Haley was a "nerd," despite her many claims to be one. Not my favorite Julie Cross novel, but still a fun book to sit down and relax with.

    ***I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.***Thank you Netgalley and Entangled Publishing for sending me a copy of Breaking the Ice before its publication.This was such a fun book to read and nothing like what I expected. Having never read anything else written by Julie Cross, I have to say her writing was wonderful. This is a classic story of a nerdy boy and popular girl unexpectedly f...

    I received this book via NetGallery in exchange for my honest review. I really enjoyed this book. Loved both Fletcher and Haley, thought that they were great for each other. Haley is the Princess of Juniper Fall, cheer captain and popular girl. Fletcher has lived in a bubble his whole life struggling with very serious allergies and avoiding town gossip. He would rather be invisible then known. Civics class changes all that for Fletcher, Haley sto...

    3.75 Stars! Breaking the Ice is the second installment in the Juniper Falls series. Without reading the first in the series, I was worried I’d be missing some key points but this can pretty much be read as a stand-alone. I really enjoyed this story that centers around Fletcher Scott and Haley Stevenson. The author wrote the opposites attract in a very refreshing and believable way. Haley is the Princess of Juniper Falls. Her character really su...
  • Tammy
    Haley and Fletcher are opposites. Fletcher has severe allergies and stays to himself most of the time. Haley is Princess of Juniper Falls and is involved in everything. The two meet at summer school and a school project brings them together as well as Jamie, Haley's BFF. I liked that Haley's BFF was a guy. Fletcher's family was unique in itself in many ways. The different outlook they had on life was refreshing. Fletcher's determination to not ha...

    Julie Cross is a new author to me and I really wasn’t sure what to expect from Breaking the Ice after all it is book 2 in a series, well this book was a lot more than I ever expected, I found characters that had depth and were easy to like, a storyline that made you smile and at times tore at your heartstrings, Haley and Fletcher so different yet so perfect together, their story is a very special one it covers learning disabilities, severe food...

    I received a copy of Breaking the Ice by Julie Cross from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I really enjoyed this story! Breaking the Ice was well written and from the start, I was rooting for the main characters, Fletcher Scott and Haley Stevenson. They were flawed, but likeable and had fun chemistry together. The plot was a little predictable, but it was still lots of fun.
  • Ambur
    Awe, I absolutely ADORED this book!!!! I loved the first book in Julie Cross’s Juniper Falls series, OFF THE ICE, so I’ve been eagerly waiting for the sequel! BREAKING THE ICE was exactly what I wanted and could’ve possibly hoped for! It was sweet, funny, heartwarming and so amazing! I loved Haley and Fletcher so much and I’m already looking forward for the next Juniper Falls Book where I can only hope there will be some epic Claire/Tate ...
  • Heather andrews
    Fletch really appreciates his woman's efforts, "...I don’t have a clue what’s in this room, and what if you came over again and there were peanut crumbs hiding somewhere—” The look he gives me is so intense, so welcoming, words get stuck in my throat. He crosses the room in two seconds flat, and then his hands are on my face." I liked this book, I loved the characters.
  • Lisa
    I thought at first this was just going to be a sweet little romance, but it turned out to be a gem! Real characters with real issues. Enjoyable read! I need to go back to the first one in the series... and then watch for future ones. Thanks NetGalley, publisher and Julie Cross for the eARC!
