Everyone loves hockey superstar Pierce Miller. Everyone except Lia Bailey.
When the two are forced to teach a skating class to save the rink, Lia’s not sure she’ll survive the pressure of Nationals and Pierce’s ego. Not only can’t he remember her name, he signed her bottle of water like she was one of his groupies. Ugh.
But if there’s one thing Lia knows better than figure skating, it’s hockey. Hoping to take his ego down a notch—or seven—she logs into his team website under an anonymous name to give him pointers on his less-than-stellar playing.
Turns out, Pierce isn’t arrogant at all. And they have a lot in common. Too bad he’s falling for the anonymous girl online. No matter how much fun they’re starting to have in real life, she’s afraid he’s going to choose fake-Lia over the real one…
Disclaimer: This book contains a swoony hockey player (and his equally swoony friends!), one-too-many social media accounts, kisses that’ll melt ice, and a secret identity that might not be so secret after all…
Thanks so much for taking the time and spending time with us here at Chapter by Chapter!
Describe your book in 140 characters or less (like a Tweet)
hockey player + 1 figure skater + 1 fake social media account + 1 too many relationships = ALL LACED UP!
What was your inspiration for writing this book? Was it in a dream? A thought while taking a walk?
I’ve always wanted to write a hockey player/figure skater romance. I was a figure skater most of my life, and therefore was around a ton of hockey players, too. It’s a natural match!
Tell us about the main character(s).
Pierce Miller is a superstar hockey player and teenage web celeb. He’s completely gorgeous and confident. Lia Bailey is a shy but talented figure skater. She’s been through some trauma, but has a huge heart.
Do you have a favorite quote or specific part in the book that you really love?
I think my favorite part is when Lia goes out with Pierce for the first time. They go out to eat, and he builds a tabletop hockey rink out of coffee creamer tubs and sugar packets, with stirrers for sticks and a straw wrapper for a puck. It allows them to have fun while getting to know each other. And of course, the date ends in a kiss!
Was there a specific part in the book that you had an especially difficult time writing? If so, why?
Some of the scenes where Pierce and Lia were messaging each other back and forth were kind of tough. It took some work to get the pacing right and keep the scenes moving, but my editor helped a ton!
What sort of projects do you have going on right now. Any new books coming out?
I’m currently planning out the next book in the Breakaway series! Keep an eye out for Pierce’s friend and teammate, Luke Jackson, who will be getting his own book soon!
It was great having you on the blog today! We hope you’ll decide to stop by again someday, and we wish you much success!!
