Blurb:  Drew worked years for his shot at Olympic greatness, but disappointment threatened his dreams of the big time. Will his coach be able to help him realize his dreams, and fantasies?

If you watched – and enjoyed – the recent Olympic Swimming events with their hot, young, well toned guys in tight fitting, wet swimwear, then you may will be in for a further splash of the same…

Only this time, it gets a lot more raunchy.

Hot, hot, hot gay erotica from one of the best authors to hit Deviant Erotica’s gay selection since Christian Quinn.

Review:  What a sweet story this was!

Drew is training for the Olympics after missing his shot in previous qualifiers. James is the trainer hired by Drew’s father to get him there. They’ve been training together for a few years but have always kept things professional.

Then, Drew starts having trouble after showing up late for practice one day. James intends to find out what the problem is and gets his chance after Drew ends up in some more trouble. Once they act upon their attraction, they decide to take things further. These guys are very sweet together. James is the more dominant experienced of the two, and I love stories about first timers.  This one did not disappoint.

For a short story, this was very well put together. These guys have a friendship that has grown through their years of training together, and the eventual sex was hot and sweet. The only thing that niggled at me was the use of some repetitive words or sayings, such as “the swimmer.” But, overall, this was a really enjoyable, afternoon read that was at times funny, sad but also sexy and heartwarming.

I’m definitely looking forward to reading more of Mr. Stevens’ work.

Overall Impression: I really liked it!

*I purchased my own, personal copy of this book for review.*
