Due to past relationships neither champion figure skater Tracey Hayward nor hockey captain, Dakota (Dak) Andersen is interested in dating anyone. However, the two keep crossing paths and end up needing to work together on and off the ice. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for new adult audiences.

    I adored this book. Elizabeth Hartey does an amazing job with her character development. Tracey and Dak are likable and complex individuals. They have similarities that make them relate. They both had tragedies occur in previous relationships that cause them to shy away from wanting to date anyone. They both love marine life. Which I appreciate because I often wish I majored in marine biology. They grow tremendously throughout the story.

    The plot was realistic and skillfully written. There are many heartwarming and compelling scenes throughout this novel. It made me experience many emotions. I was interested in the story from beginning to end. I’m looking forward to continuing reading this series and future books by Elizabeth Hartey. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of this wonderful book! To begin, I love the concept- an NA romance with a hockey player and a figure skater? Sign me up! Dak is one of my new favorite book boyfriends, and I love how he cares for Tracey. The author weaves the romance with the struggles these two must overcome to make a page-turning, swoon-worthy read. Highly recommend to NA fans!

    Omg

    I loved this book so much. There is so much to like about this book the fact that there wasn’t that much drama or even the same kind of drama. Honestly this book is just wags I needed. I can wait to see what else this author puts out. The only issue I had was that s Dan didn’t get to meet her family and that I really wanted her to play a bit more hockey but that all. I did like that this kind of reminded me of the cutting edge though.

    Loved!! Can’t wait to read about the other Hottie Hockey players!!

    Ohh I am such a sports book junkie!! Cross Stroke is about a hottie that plays Hockey and then throw in a figure skater as well...I just knew I would fall in love!!!

    This book was about Tracey, she is a Gold Medalist for two years in a row and then suddenly, she had to transfer university's due to some crap that happened to her. She was heart broken and her reputation was ruined.

    Dak is the hottie that plays Hockey. He has had his heart broke as well and has a heart felt story about his ex, but

    Dak is the hottie that plays Hockey. He has had his heart broke as well and has a heart felt story about his ex, but he isn't looking for any long term relationships. He just can't move on.

    That is until he collides with the Gold Medalist on the ice. Y'all this collision was the beginning of full blown crazzy banter. Soo much sexual tension, but Tracey thinks he bats for the opposite team, but ohhh is she mistaken..lol

    Now y'all will have to pick this book up and find out if these two ever get on the same page and even skate together in the future!! : )

    I gave Cross Stroke 4 Shining Stars!!! Elizabeth Hartey is a new Author for me and I will definitely be stalking her for new releases!! I sooo fell in love with her characters and loved the fun ride this book gave me!!

  • Tracy- OMGReads

    Tracey and Dak slam into each other’s lives when they least expect it. Both of them are getting over tragedy in their pasts. They both love the ice, him with hockey, and Tracey a figure skater.

    The two have to rebuild their lives. Tracey wants nothing to do with a relationship at her new school. When they crash, sparks fly. Their chemistry was so full of sexual tension. I loved watching them fall for each other.

    Cross Stroke was a fairly well paced. The plot was engaging and there was a ton of feels, but it was also easy to laugh. The characters were easy to fall for and developed well. I would recommend to the reader looking for a sexy hockey hero and an intriguing storyline.

    After having to decide whether or not Tracey could continue with her education, she decides that moving schools is the way to go.

    Triggers: Revenge porn, cheating, M/M relationship within the story

    After having to decide whether or not Tracey could continue with her education, she decides that moving schools is the way to go. She is also an amazing ice skater and is able to join the club team of her new school. Since ice time is hard to come by, the skating team will also run in to the hockey team from time to time.

    Dak is cocky and arrogant. He is also smart, kind and full of guilt. He sees something in Tracey and despite his friends loving being single and having puck bunnies over every night, Dak wants something more.

    When Tracey realizes that she lives right next door to Dak, can she retreat enough to protect her heart? Dak and Tracey have good chemistry. They banter like old friends, but can steam up a room just as quickly. I love that they start as acquaintances and learn to trust each other. Each character has pain in their past and when they share that with each other, you get to see their relationship evolve and grow.

    I loved their story. It was sweet at times and I loved their banter. I can't wait to see if they will show up in the next book or if it will be about Tracey's lovable roommate.

    Triggers: Cheating; revenge porn; suicide attempt

    I liked this book, the banter between the main characters and the way both characters have faced their inner demons and survived.

    Tracey is on a new campus, having decided to transfer schools to finish her graduate studies after being betrayed by her last boyfriend. Her ex did a number not only on her self-confidence but with her self worth. Trace doubts her abilities to judge a man's character believing that she only attracts gay men, after all with what happened with her last boyfriend seems to cemented that fact in her soul.

    Dak is hiding from his own demons. After a tragic accident with his girlfriend during his freshman year, he's sworn off serious relationships. One night stands, hook-ups with like minded women is his norm, until he meets Tracey. He senses from the beginning that she's different which makes him all the more determined to stay way from her.

    When they are paired up as lab partners for a class, they begin to really get to know one another, eventually sharing their secrets and pain. Love is not for the faint of heart and they each must overcome the obstacles thrown in their path before living their happily ever after.

    Both Tracey and Dak are flawed characters who learn from their past and learn to trust and love again.
