After an explosive locker room confrontation with his Russian rival ends in the most intense sex of his life, American pairs skater Dev Avira is distracted to say the least. He’s worked for years to have a chance at Olympic gold, and he can’t let himself—or his partner—down. Playing cat and mouse with the steely and smoldering Mikhail Reznikov is the last thing he needs as he prepares for the biggest competition of his life, but they can’t keep their hands off each other as the Games approach.
Dev soon learns that beneath Mikhail’s arrogant and aloof exterior is Misha, a passionate man who warms Dev’s heart and scorches his bed. They’re both determined to win, but for Misha his freedom could be at stake if he and his partner take anything less than gold. Who will stand atop the podium? And can secret lovers from different worlds make a life together once the competition ends?
This gay sports romance from Keira Andrews features enemies to lovers, two alpha men, sequins, and of course a happy ending. Content previously published as novellas Cold War and Holding the Edge.
Just like always, Keira rocked another amazing read. I enjoyed getting to watch the relationship between Dev and Misha grow and evolve from a passionate dislike to an extreme love throughout the course of the story. It made me look at skating differently as well. It’s always so much fun getting to watch these amazing athletes perform and having a story written about the sport had me excited as hell. I ate this up. Wonderful characters and well written from start to finish. Hot, steamy, sweet and emotional. I definitely recommend taking an afternoon to get lost in Dev, Misha, Bailey and Kisa.
