Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  CMy
Maureen Clark, otherwise known as Mo, stepped foot in Finland with two thoughts in mind: making a name for herself instead of living in her family's shadow, and jumping in the world-famous Lahti Ski Games. Between studying for her classes and her ski practices, Mo realizes that she isn't going to have as much free time to explore Finland as she thought. After jumping during practice and landing short of all of the others' distances, Maureen decides that she needs extra practice. So therefore, when her hot tough-guy teammate asks if she wants his help in return for some recognition by the press, Maureen can't decline his help. While at the ski trip to Kemi, Mo and Leevi really hit it off, but how can she possibly date him when he's her competitive teammate and an untrustworthy Gypsy? What if she isn't ready in time for the televised Lahti Ski Games and she can't live up to her family's famous name? And if she doesn't, will she have to continue living her life forevermore being called Mr. Clark's daughter?

I really enjoyed how The Finnish Line was full of adventure and had just the right amount of romance. This is a fantastic, action-packed novel with very interesting scenes and characters. My favorite character is Leevi because he had the best personality and he was very unique from the rest of the people in this book. There were a lot of surprises that kept me guessing until the very end. I think that this would be a terrific story to make a sequel to since there were still quite a few questions about their futures left unanswered when the story came to an end. This is just one of the many fabulous novels in the S.A.S.S. Series written by various authors. Each one is a young adult romance and I hope to be able to collect them all.
