This is a solid athlete romance, especially if you enjoy gymnastics. Topher, as the flamboyant ex-Olympic figure skater, has a nice balance with Jake, the current gymnast. The stresses of big-stakes competition were well done. There is enough competition on page to add some excitement, but it doesn't take over the story.

This is fairly low-angst, low-conflict. There were lots of set-ups for potential major drama, but instead it was more steady realism. I liked the warm but imperfect relationships

I'd completely forgotten about following up on this series until I saw by chance that this had come out! I didn't enjoy this as much as the first book, but this was still a solid read, and as always I enjoyed the specific details about the Olympics atmosphere and the nitty-gritty of gymnastics scoring and so on. I even went back and skimmed the first book and compared the dialogue of Isaac Flood and Jake Mirakovitch's conversation from both their perspectives. Come back and write more thoughts d ...more

I'm not sure how to describe my feelings on this book. The look into the characters' lives and relationships could've been a little deeper as there are basically three traits for each person. The romance is very superficial and there is more talk about training schedules, practice, the commentator's gig, and the competitions than there is about anything related to the romance. It had its cute moments but there was very little focus on the relationship itself, and that sucks in a romance novel. ...more

It was very good, not as enticing as book 1 but it was a solid feel-good entertainment. I could relate to family pressures and a bad case of performance anxiety. I think romance was less developed with this couple than with the first set of athletes.
I still liked this book a lot and preordered the third to come.

I really really liked the first in the series and this one had lots of potential. ultimately, it wasn't quite as good, even though I liked Topher and Jake and I liked the writing. I think it was because they couldn't quite manage to find enough time to spend together so things felt like they didn't quite get off the ground. still a very good read. will definitely keep my eye out for the next one. ...more

3.5 It was a good read, but never felt like it got going.

Five stars for sheer enjoyment. Not quite as good a read as #1 in the series, Here Comes The Flood, but well worth reading. I think I have an Olympics kink!

I so enjoyed book 1 and this was a bit of a let down.

On the one hand, there was much less drama – which felt good – but maybe also lessened any impact.

The characters felt a little 2 dimensional – in comparison to book 1. I was not nearly as attached to any of the storylines. I appreciated all that Jake over came, but I got very little involvement with him and Topher that had me believing the ILYs near the end of the story.

Topher should have been developed more. He was just there and an outlet fo
