An unexpected phone call from the man who broke her heart offers Amy Shepherd an opportunity to return to the work she loves, training elite figure skaters. Except it’s just one figure skater: Him. Can she finally forgive and forget?
Figure skater Mikhail “Misha” Zaikov once had it all: medals, money and the adoration of millions. But a devastating injury put an end to his career and his romance, leaving him with nothing but regret over what could have been. His last chance to re-join the world’s top skaters is now. And there’s only one person who can help him: Her.
On Russia’s unyielding ice, Misha must reclaim what he’s lost while facing off against a talented young rival and risking further injury. But Amy soon discovers Misha’s much bigger challenges lurk off the ice. And she’s determined to keep Misha whole and healthy, even if doing so ends his shot at the gold.

Elizabeth Harmon from her backlist
A graduate of the University of Illinois, she has worked in advertising, community journalism and as a freelance magazine writer. She feels incredibly blessed to have a career that allows her to spend her days imagining “what if?” and a loving family that keeps her grounded in the real world. Her debut novel, Pairing Off is a 2016 RITA Award Finalist.
An adventurous cook, vintage home enthusiast, occasional actress, and entry-level figure skater, Elizabeth makes her home in the Midwest, where life is good, but the sports teams aren’t. She loves to hang out on her front porch, or at her favorite local establishments, enjoy good food and wine, and talk writing with anyone who will listen.
Wooziers!! I feel as though I have been through an emotional ringer with this couple. The journey Misha and Amy took together made my heart ache and it left me feeling desperate for a happily ever after.
Getting it Back is a second chance sports romance. When Misha and Amy first met, she thought they were in love and involved in a partnership headed toward a bright future – together. And then Misha had to ruin it all. He broke her heart and it changed the course of her life.
However, it only takes a single phone call in the middle of the night to show Amy that their relationship is unfinished.
This coupling drove me bonkers. On one hand, I loved Misha and Amy. I truly enjoyed them reconnecting and getting to re-know one another. It was tempting and sweet. I anticipated the moment that they would surrender to their hearts and lust. (I doubt I will ever look at male figure skaters the same – holy hotness!!) That was awesome.
But… argggg!! As much as I loved Misha, I wanted to punch him in the throat. His pride and pre-convinced notions were his downfall. Except you had to respect his perseverance to achieve his goals. However, my frustration with him keep me completely involved in the plot – I was incredibly curious how these two would achieve all that they wanted. I think that says a lot about the author’s writing ability – she made me feel and kept me entertained.
Overall, I thought Getting it Back was a great read and I truly enjoyed getting to know these characters. Elizabeth Harmon is a new to me author – I had not read the previous books in this series but it didn’t affect my experience. More so, it make me want to go back to read them. I would definitely check out Misha and Amy’s romance!
