HOLD MY BREATH
NA Contemporary Romance-Stand Alone
Scheduled to release: November 18, 2016
BLURB:Fractions of seconds can do lots of damage. One decision can ruin lives. A blink can be tragic. And loving a Hollister…can hurt like hell.
I would know.
They say the average person can hold their breath under water for two full minutes when pushed to the extremes. Will Hollister has been holding his for years. The oldest of two elite swimming brothers, Will was always a dominant force in the water. But in life, he preferred to let his younger
brother Evan be the one to shine.
Evan got the girl, and Will…he got to bury all of the secrets. A brother’s burden, the weight of it all nearly left him to drown.
The daughter of two Olympians, my path was set the day my fingertips first touched water. My future was as crystal clear as the lane I dominated in the pool—swim hard, win big, love a Hollister.
My life with Evan burned bright. He gave me arms to come home to, and a smile that fooled the world into believing everything was perfect. But it was Will who pushed me. Will…who really knew me.
And when all of the pieces fell, it was Will who started to pick them up.
In the end, the only thing that matters are those few precious seconds—and what we decide to do while we still have them in our grasp.
So, did you read that blurb? There's no way for me to sum it better than the author did. Seriously, that is one of the best synopsis ever. I was so ready to dive into this book after watching the incredible summer Olympics this year and also because Ginger Scott always adds something special to her stories that ends up leaving her mark on my heart.
Will and Maddy have spent the last four years trying to overcome the same tragedy. Instead of grieving together they allowed their pain to be the force that kept them apart. Their careers as top competitive swimmers have suffered as well. But most of all Will has struggled with not only loss, but responsibilties that burden his heart and spirit. I was so worried at the start that Will was going to have skeletons that would ruin the potential relationship with Maddy. I should have known better. The author has again created an ultimate book boyfriend. That's not to say Will isn't flawed but his heart and compassion (and gorgeous athletic body) earn him a spot as one of my faves.
Some would consider theirs a forbidden love. But truly it's more of a second chance at love. A chance to choose the right one. The one that makes them the best that they can be not only in a race but in all the ways that matter most. Theirs is a story about love overcoming tragedy. Hold My Breath was another reason why this author is on my list of favorites.
