Hating Makenzier Porter


He hates her.

To hockey player Jaxon DeLuca, Makenzie Porter is the frosty ice princess who skated into his hometown and upended his world. He blames her for everything gone wrong in his life. Now hockey is all he has left, and he's not about to let her steal that from him, too.

She hates him.

To figure skater Makenzie, Jaxon is nothing but a jerk. Since she arrived in Brinkley, he’s been hellbent on blaming her for decisions outside her control, and he’ll stop at nothing to humiliate her. Makenzie just wants a chance to play hockey, but it seems everyone, especially Jaxon, wants to block her.


But their shadows have other ideas.

After a heated moment on the ice, fate takes a bizarre twist when their shadows start misbehaving. To Jaxon and Makenzie’s dismay, their shadows have run off and fallen in love. Forced into an unexpected alliance, sworn enemies must unite to locate their love-struck shadows before their awkward secret is exposed. Skating the precipice between disdain and desire, once icy glares transform into charged moments of electricity. 

In this playful YA romcom, enemies find sparks even in the coldest shadows of hate. Brace yourself for a delightfully angsty, fun-filled, flirty adventure that will melt even the iciest of hearts.

Suspicions are aroused. Bullies rise up. The town is against her. Will the unravelling of the truth tear them apart?
