    This is a delightful second chance romance filled with so many unexpected twists and turns it takes the reader on a riveting journey from the USA to Russia with plenty of love along the wayWhen the man she loved deserted her two years ago Amy Shepherd was heartbroken but when he rings to ask her to help him this kind hearted young lady still rushes to his aid She’s a sports therapist who originally dreamed of training elite figure skaters but when Mikhail Misha Zaikov left her after sending her a text she took a job working in a school Now he’s back but still suffering from the injuries which halted his career There’s much angst and turmoil to overcome and new dreams and opportunities to explore but should she give him a second chance? Will he just break her heart once ? Should they have simple a professional relationship this time or will their mutual attraction overcome the barriers both have built around their hearts?The story has great well developed characters including some very different skaters coaches and family members as well as the two main characters Their interactions are fraught with emotion the past impacting dramatically on relationships As Misha endeavours to return to peak performance in this sport the dangers of participating in such a physical sport are portrayed brilliantly helping the reader feel every misstep and fall along the way This is a story of determination overcoming obstacles and training to succeed in a competitive environment but one where love will eventually find the way to heal and give guidance for a happier loving future ahead The author takes the reader on the journey leading to the HEA but with plenty of angst along the wayThanks to the author publishers Barclay Publicity and NetGalley too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review

    375 StarsSecond chance romances can be touch and go mostly due to the different ways that the original romance can go south I thought Getting It Back was a decent example of this theme and I had a good time reading it I loved the heroine and how capable she was at her job I also admired her willingness to pursue her dream even with the pressure she was receiving from her family and friends Misha was a decent enough hero I didn't care for his past treatment of Amy but at least he knew how crappy he was and apologized a lot for his actions The romance developed slowly and I thought that worked for two people who had a past but were afraid to jump back in again My main issue was the pacing The first half of the book just kept dragging on and I was bored Thankfully things picked up when they went to Russia and got back into the ice skating world I just wish that had happened soonerI received an eARC of this book from Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    Who would have thought that I would read a book about figure skating? I am not really into sports in fact I should say that I don’t have any interest sports at all I decided to read something new getting out of my comfort zone It was a bet that paid offYes there was a lot of figure skating in this book However at the same time it was all about a man uest to find out who he really is and how he can bring value into the world Misha is not yet 30 and he is having the illusion that his life is going nowhere That is an extremely difficult time for Misha and he is struggling to regain his balanceIt is also a beautiful story about forgiveness consciously choosing our heart and giving the best of ourselves All of these lessons are deeply needed in our world When I think of a great book I think about what will be staying with me once I am done reading it Reading a book and getting shivers is always a good indication that there is something for me to learn from the event that is occurring Forgiveness is the most powerful healing tool yet it is the most difficult thing to do Once we embark on the journey there is no way back Our heart needs to be rebuilt one step at a time Amy and Misha story is leading the way to show us how it can be doneThe first half of the book is strong really strong; I enjoyed every single second of it In the second half I had the feeling that the momentum was lost At time I felt it was dragging but there was always something that was motivating me to keep on reading That is why I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 And I have to add that those Russian skaters found a way straight to my heartI have been deeply touched by Misha’s story especially his estranged relationship with his father I felt his frustration his guilt and that is all I needed to have my heart broken Yes he sometimes acted like a jerk no doubt about it but that’s what forgiveness is all about isn’t? No one is perfect Some work their issues differently but all have theirs That`s what Amy was teaching her family along the wayAmy is a rescuer she adopted a cat that had just 3 legs she has a golden heart It did not matter how Misha hurt her in the past when he needed her she was by her side to help him heal She knew that he did not have anybody to take care of him in the US and she did what her heart was telling her While that trait might sometimes be an issue in a character in this story it just made Amy appeared stronger As everyone else she had her moments of doubts and breakdown but she is a woman of integrity and in touch with her emotions That is exactly what she was able to teach Misha Misha in return showed her all about determination and courageI always wanted to go to Russia this book was the opportunity for me to travel there in my imagination and really liked the vibe of it I have not read the other books in the series but I will read them for sure It is written with heart and compassionI just loved this book It is truly inspiring and I hope you will have a chance to read itI received this book from the JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated

    A figure skater going for a come back and getting a second chance at the one he let get away How could I say no? Love the sport of figure skating and was keen to try a new author and series The story ended up not being what I expected well in essentials it was but in the details I had to make some adjustments to appreciate what I gotThis was book three in the Red Hot Russians series I hadn't read the others but I had no problem starting with this one as there was only a loose connection I do want to go back for the other stories after getting a little slice of them in this oneThe story opens with high school athletic trainer Amy Shepherd getting a call in the middle of the night from a man she thought was out of her life for good She thought she was getting married and was in love all the way up until the point she gets a text that he is gone and taking a coaching job in Chicago It cut deep and her family's militant and smothering form of love made it hard to recover Now when she is finally back on an even keel and getting on with life Misha calls because she is the only one in his life that can help himMikhail Zaikov once Russia's most promising figure skating hope and bronze Olympic medalist lost it all Injuries and surgery on his back knocked him out of the game he ran away from the love of his life lost his first coaching job and now lies unable to move on his back in a cheap motel room in the middle of nowhere In a haze of pain he calls Amy the woman he hurt deeply and she comes Her forgiveness and compassion are his undoing Amy won't leave him where he has landed and drags him back with herAmy isn't sure it was wise to bring Misha home with her because her feelings are still there for him but she can't leave him there defeated and willing to live in a cheap motel flipping burgers at a diner His life is on the ice and he needs it like air If only she can get him back in his skates and taking an interest in teaching and coaching But what she awakens in Misha leaves her terrified and excited He wants it all He wants what he lost and he is going for it But his back can't take the pressure of the high level of competition He wants her there beside him as his trainer but she will have to go toe to toe with a militant coach and the demons of Misha's past to help him fearing that he will always put ambition before love And where does that leave her? Them?Alright This book told the story of a comeback I love that type of story and was already prepared to root for it to happen The author took the time to show just how far Misha has fallen and also give him and Amy a back story The second half of the book went behind the scenes in the world of competitive figure skating in Russia I felt I was thereAs to the characters again they felt real and their situation felt real Their lives were balanced against the sport and romance aspect I liked the internal growth the conflict and how it developed The hero is Russian and half the story takes place in Russia Like the characters and the ice skating world this cultural backdrop was also authentic and fascinating I feel that the author put an amazing amount of work into her stories to bring all this about I enjoyed Misha and Amy's romance and they were great together even if they viewed things differently but I confess that the romance was only one of the elements I lovedBut this is the part that is hard This story felt long and drawn out It had all the elements that should have had me riveted but it just didn't I can't put my finger on it other than maybe writing style? Don't know It was an odd tension for me that I wanted to keep reading but was forced to work hard to stay interested at the same time Overall it was good and I'm glad I read it and I also want to go back for the other books Maybe I just need to get used to the writing style Still not sureSo in summary I was glad I read this book I want Those who love sport romance particularly in the world of figure skating should pounce on this one It feels like the real deal and offers up good development backdrop passionate romance and tensionMy thanks to Barclay Publicity for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review

    A hot Russian in spandex and sparkles? Color me skeptical about just how masculine and straight the MC would be but somehow Ms Harmon makes him believableAmy Shepherd was heartbroken when her boyfriend Russian Olympic champion figure skater Mikhail Zaikov broke up with her via text message on her graduation day A few years later she's surprised to hear from him in massive pain and asking for her help Despite her misgivings Amy rushes to Misha's side utilizing the athletic training skills she's earned to try and soothe his injured back The two reconnect in a big way and when Misha decides to return to Russia to attempt a resurrection of his career Amy accompanies him as his athletic trainer Misha is determined to make a comeback to vie for the gold medal that eluded him all those years ago but with a brilliant yet sadistic coach it seems he's getting practice at falling than landing the jumps he needs to be competitive again Amy can't stand to watch Misha kill himself at something he doesn't need to do She knows one wrong move could lead to paralyzation and the end of ANY sort of career in the sport Will Misha be able to get back any sort of career in figure skating or will Amy's fears turn to reality?GETTING IT BACK is the third book in the Red Hot Russians series and I'm pretty sure it's the first book I've read where the man wears flamboyant seuenced clothing on a regular basis and the woman is interested in sports than shoes I did like this book but it was just SO long that after awhile I found my mind wandering and attention span waning Every detail of Misha's jumps and spins and arguments and frustration was spelled out and I honestly believe that this book could've been cut down by 100 or so pages and be a better tighter read Amy was a real strong woman but her near obsession with Misha clouded all of her judgement when it came to her own life decisions Yes I get that her moving to Russia was supposedly as much to get to practice what she's wanted for so long but really it seemed like she spent time staring at the Kremlin than working with Misha's pain management Misha was a selfish egotistical former elite athlete who did only what was best for him and thought of nobody but himself The other thing that drove me nuts was that all the characters' names sounded similar and I kind of got confused at who was who at times despite the proclivity to use full first and last names when speaking to one anotherWhile this wasn't an inherently bad book I was just left very ambivalent about Misha's skating career his and Amy's lukewarm relationship and the minutiae of both of their lives Nothing about GETTING IT BACK was engaging to me but I'm sure that lovers of softer romance stories will enjoy this oneBottom Line This wasn't my cuppa and I couldn't connect with either of the MC's but fans of this series surely will like this one See at See at

    35 starsIf you’re a fan of figure skating then this book does a great job of bringing the painful hard work behind the effortless beauty to life If you’re here for sexy Russians and don’t have much interest in the sport this may not be the book you’re looking for It’s a good second chance romance but the emphasis is heavily on the sport and even though I really like figure skating I found it did drag a bit at timesI really liked where this started out with Amy being amazing and forgiving and all around awesome while Misha is all sad and pitiful and deeply in need of her help The pair of them are pretty sweet as they muddle through I really liked how supportive Amy was encouraging Misha to get back on the ice and reclaim something of his former dreamsThen it heads to Russia and I have to admit that's when this book lost my attention a little There’s a lot of detail about Moscow and while this was great and all at times it felt a bit like a guidebook It doesn’t help that Amy and Misha’s relationship is very stopstart with plenty of feelings swirling around and being denied because of the past or because of professionalism or just because Which leaves Misha single minded and prone to selfishness while Amy is trying to be supportive and worrying a lot for very good reason – but then what did she really expect? She knows the guy she knows what he wants it could hardly have come as a surprise that he would push things the way he didI don’t know There were things about this book that I really enjoyed – the early reunion the friendships and reconciliations to be made – but it also felt pretty long at times and somewhat predictable I liked it but I didn’t love it Amy is so very forgiving that it made it feel a bit odd when she changes tack while Misha starts off so sweet and slowly shuts down as he becomes obsessed with his goal once They’re complicated but a few of the twists of their relationship I found annoying than compellingSo on the whole this is okay If you love figure skating and second chances then you’ll probably find plenty to enjoy here I did like how things turned out at the very end too and it all made me curious about where this series might head nextI received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    This review is of “Getting it Back” book #3 in the “Red Hot Russians” series by Elizabeth HarmonThe story begins with Amy Shepherd the heroine of the book and an athletic trainer receiving a text from Mikhail “Misha” Zaikov the hero of the book a former Russian singles skater and importantly for this book Amy’s ex boyfriend Misha has been sort of drifting since his competitive skating career ended due to a back injury and now he is plotting a comeback Amy leaves her home job family and friends in Ohio to travel to Russia with Misha whom she still has romantic feelings for as his personal athletic trainer As the book goes on we learn about Misha’s motives for becoming a champion he reunites with his estranged father Ilya Amy fights with Misha’s coach Yuri Bogdanov whom Misha later leaves to train with his father a fellow former skater Amy and Misha’s feelings for each other deepen but they almost throw their relationship away However things are salvaged before that happens and Amy and Misha have their Happily Ever AfterUpside As she has in her previous books Ms Harmon has in “Getting it Back” written two characters in Amy and Misha who are hopelessly human and that is what makes them fairly interesting characters I appreciate the non traditional ending to the skating scenesDownside I didn’t have the same feeling for Amy and Misha that I’ve had for other heroes and heroines in Ms Harmon’s books The book feels a little manipulative There are too many shallow moments in the book that when the deep moments come I feel they are forced Sex There are a few sexy scenes but this is not Ms Harmon’s strength as an authorViolence No violence although there are some curse words from Misha’s former employer Bottom Line Not Ms Harmon’s best work; not not enough interesting characters or storylines to make up for weaknesses

    I enjoyed Elizabeth Harmon's first book in the Red Hot Russians series Pairing Off So reading the third book was a natural succession Unfortunately Getting It Back did not wow me to the same extent of the author's earlier work I found the pace to be on the slow side and the plot to be predictable I liked the two main characters however trainer Amy Shepherd and bronze medal figure skater Misha Zaikov This story is about Amy and Misha's professional and personal relationship They worked together and were in love once which ended uite abruptly almost two years ago Now they are coworkers again as Misha begins relentlessly training his damaged body for competition while Amy ensures that his mind and his spine can take the daily abuse Overtime they fall in love again and find their happily ever afterOverall I liked this story Amy's emotional pain and kindheartedness caused me to shed a tear or two on than one occasion Her purposefulness to ensure Misha's safety with the constant roadblocks from his hardheaded Russian coach was invigorating I loved Misha's determination and his love of the sport however I cringed every time he fell I also loved the happy ending and the way Ms Harmon concluded the plot with pure joy and togethernessComplimentary copy provided by publisher via NetGalley
