#Review: The Slope Rules by Melanie Hooyenga | @MelanieHoo @YABoundToursPR | #Giveaway

The Slope Rules

Genre: YA Sports Romance

Release Date: February 24th 2017

Fifteen-year old Cally accepted her fate as one of the guys, so when she meets Blake, a hot snowboarder who sees her for more than her aerials on the slopes, she falls fast and hard. But their romance can only last as long as vacation.

Or so she thinks.

A twist of fate—well, her Dad opening another brewery in a new town—lands her in Blake’s school, but the charismatic boy she fell for wants nothing to do with her, and worse, the Snow Bunnies, the popular clique, claim her as their newest recruit.

Cally must learn to be true to herself—all while landing a spot on the ski team and figuring out who she is without her old friends. And when she finds out what Blake is hiding, she learns the rules on the slopes apply to more than just skiing. 

DISCLAIMER: I received a review copy of this book as part of this blog tour. 
I usually just write my final reactions to the story and my experience reading. This time, I am giving a little more, because I LOVE this book.

So, right at the start, we can see that Cally is going to be a great character. There are times when a character slowly gives a picture of who they are, but in this case, Cally has larger picture of who she is, and I really like that about her. Her love for skiing is very prominent. The first scene follows Cally on the slopes in Colorado while on vacation with her dad. It is this first scene that Cally meets Blake.

There is a bit of hot and cold when it comes to Blake talking about his family and more personal subjects. When everything gets into the open, I suggest you have some kind of munchies with you, because I was chewing on my already terribly short finger nails waiting for the outcome.

MY RATING: 4.5 of 5 STARS.
This is such a cute read. Definitely has a bit of fluff, a good read for winter season. I know its start of spring now, but I would definitely read this in the winter. I recommend this book to people who have read Defying Gravity by Kendra C. Highley. Super sweet, fun read. 

About the Author
While not a fan of matching Day-Glo outfits, Melanie’s been skiing since she was five and always points her tips up while exiting the chairlift. She lives in the land of lake effect snow—also known as west Michigan—with her husband Jeremy and Miniature Schnauzer Owen, and is always looking for ways to enjoy the outdoors. This novel, her fourth, inspired her to purchase her first helmet.
