Once I picked this book up, it was so hard to put down. Olivia and Chris are both likable, well fleshed out characters. I like that they both had their own lives and dreams outside of one another...although it's their killer chemistry and shy turned sizzling sexual tension that kept the pages turning.
Definitely my favorite by this author.

I am the kind of person who enjoys watching the Olympics for the sport but even more for the personalities. This book is perfect for me. There is the backdrop of the Olympic games and one half of our couple is an Olympic athlete.

Quick easy read. Relatable characters. I enjoyed watching the romance blossom between Olivia and Chris. It shows that not all romance is as easy as what you see in movies. There are awkward moments, shyness, wasted opportunities, etc. Thank you for showing these kinds of people that love is still possible.

I really enjoyed Chris and Olivia's story. It was cute and hot. I wanted it to keep going.

I had to put it down least night, though I didn't want to, thinking I had another 30 ish % to go. I read this morning only to find it was only two pages left and done at 77% with a preview of another book at the end.
