Perfect unison in the pool. Scorching desire in the locker room.
It's the opportunity of a lifetime for young Tyler Bourne to compete in Olympic synchronized diving with veteran Aiden Oxford. The last thing Tyler expects is to fall head over heels for his gorgeous partner, and he struggles to keep his attraction under control.
Polite but undeniably distant, Aiden keeps him at arm's length, and Tyler feels like a disappointment to Aiden, who'd been favored to win gold with his disgraced former partner. Tyler knows his feelings are hopelessly one-sided and that the podium is likely out of reach. Yet as the Games begin, he learns nothing is certain until the final dive…
This gay sports romance from Keira Andrews features Jane Austen levels of pining, an age difference, hot guys in Speedos, shower sex, and of course a happy ending.
Short and sweet...
I tend to avoid the shorter novels until recently when the story and characters were memorable and believable. These characters made me happy and gave me a glimpse into the world of competitive divers. Having watched diving televised on Olympic coverage, I visualized the two working closely at the high platform. Remembering the American diver, in the individual competition, accidentally hitting his head of the platform scared me with each dive. Of course, they had to medal... but which one!!?
