If he risks his heart, can he keep his head in the game?
To win gold, figure skater Alex Grady must train harder than the competition morning, noon, and night. He’s obsessed with mastering another quadruple jump, and due to the lack of filter between his mouth and brain, doesn’t have a lot of friends. As for a boyfriend, forget it. So what if he’s still a virgin at twenty? The Olympics are only every four years—everything else can wait. Relationships are messy and complicated anyway, and he has zero room in his life for romance.
So it’s ridiculous when Alex finds himself checking out his boring new training mate Matt Savelli. Calm, collected “Captain Cardboard” is a nice guy, but even if Alex had time to date, Matt’s so not his type. Yet beneath Matt’s wholesome surface, there’s a dirty, sexy man who awakens a desire Alex has never experienced and can’t deny…
Note: This gay romance from Keira Andrews features opposites attracting, new adult angst, sexual discovery, and of course a happy ending.
This new version has been extensively rewritten, updated, and expanded into a new adult romance with explict on-page sex.

Alex and Matt. Where do I begin.
They were totally different ends of the spectrum personality wise, yet meshed together so well.

Like your typical Keira Andrews story, the secondary characters are flawless, and the chemistry between the main characters was in your face. However, I just wasn’t feeling Alex on his own, he was rude, cocky and abrasive – and while I understand his fierce need to win at the Olympics, I just couldn’t forgive his attitude towards other people.

I also wish we got to see Matt’s POV – we never got a good insight in to what his thought’s were other then in any of the conversations we saw him in. I found him a good counter balance to Alex’s personality.

The in depth knowledge into ice skating proves the author did her research and knew her stuff.
