Shining Through (Red Hot Russians, #4)Shining Through by Elizabeth Harmon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shining through is the fourth in the Red Hot Russians series which I received a copy in exchange for an honest review from Barclay Publicity and Netgalley. Daniil is an amazing, gorgeous, Russian skater trying to make the Russian team for the Winter Olympics in Grenoble, however, he also always has one foot in the neighborhood of trouble. He also is the son of a well-known Russian gangster. Tabitha is America's darling who is also trying to make the USA Olympic team for Grenoble. This is her last chance because she is now 23 years old. Despite the fact that she is extremely gifted and still young, her competitors are teenagers. For ice skating, she is considered too old.

Danill has his eye on Tabitha and he hopes when he has a chance to meet her that she will be interested in him also. His hunch is right but there is so much against them. Russia and the US are not exactly friends and the Russian ice skating team is not exactly friendly with the US skating team. They also live in two different countries and Tabitha's public skating career is coming to an end while Danill's skating career continues. Tabitha is worried about her future and it makes it hard to focus on their relationship. Failing to make the Olympic team and win gold will mean an end to some of her more immediate dreams for helping her family. Shining through is a sweet love story for more than just Danill and Tabitha. It is also a great story about perseverance, dreams, goals and looking forward to the future.
