This is a cute, angst-free story about an American diver competing in the 2012 Olympics in London and the redheaded bartender who catches his eye. If you want a feel-good, lightly steamy story with a fluffy HEA, look no further.

Of course I couldn't resist posting some pics of the beautiful and talented Tom Daley.




Oh and btw a really nice and sweet story about an American Olympic platform diver, John who meets his British redheaded love of his life Blake..

Can't wait for the Olympics 2016 to start in Rio.

Hey guys! This is my story from MLR Press's Going for Gold: M/M Olympic Anthology.

Available on Amazon to purchase or read on Kindle Unlimited. :)
Nico Jaye does the Olympics! Which is to say that it's a sweet romance with two next-to-perfect characters and big, fluffy HEA set against the background of the biggest sporting event in the world. ...more

Into the Deep is such a cute little hea.

John is an Olympic swimmer from America, and Blake is a bartender in London.

From the moment they meet, these two cuties are drawn together. John likes the adorable redhead and his art. But Blake isn't convinced he's good enough for an Olympian. 

This is a perfect little pick me up. A story to read in your beach chair or escape the winter bl

Cute feel-good story. Would have liked to have a bit more of the swimming/diving, but otherwise really lovely and perfect for inbetween. Wouldn't mind to read more of these two. ;) Recommended! ...more

I recieved a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Into the Deep is my second Jaye Nico book and I adored it. I loved how it was just a short and sweet love story. There was no angst which is a relief sometimes, there was also no drama which is nice and none of that miscommunication that is seeming to become a crutch for swirling conflict into a story.

Blake and John were just two guys who happened to meet one night, then run into eachother again within the same week. I think it real

What a wonderful surprise!

I'm not generally a fan of short stories. Nor am I a fan of sports. Therefore going into this short story based around a diver competing in the 2012 London Olympics, I wasn't expecting a whole lot. I certainly wasn't expecting to laugh... which I did more than once thanks to Blake's inner voice. (Keeping it clean in the review.)

While this is short it is also sweet with likable characters, none of the usual tropes, and most surprising of all, no errors! That last one is

A very fluffy romance between a 'working class' man and an Olympic diver from a wealthy background. Meeting in London does seem to make a lot of the action feel pre-determined, like pieces of a puzzle falling into the correct spaces in a single go. This will certainly stretch the boundaries of credibility for a lot of readers, but the candy-flavoured sex made up for this to a large extent. I just don't know if I'd read it over and over.
