“RELAY delivered a sweet and surprisingly romantic story about a second chance at a love that never could blossom.”
~ Under the Covers
I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while. I don’t think I’ve read enough books about swimming and this one sounded right up my alley. Alex and Dane met at summer camp when they were teenagers. They quickly went from being friends and roommates there to developing feelings for each other. Feelings that ran deep and even though there’s been ten years and lots of heartache in between, being close to each other now as part of the US Olympic swim team it won’t take much to bring them to the surface.
There were things about this story that I liked and others that I had a hard time dealing with. Dane has struggled with his parents pressure to keep a certain image and pretend like he’s something that’s he’s not for all these years. I found his easy turnaround now to be a bit hard to believe, but that may be just me. Nevertheless, I was totally rooting for that to happen!
Alex was the one I cared for the most. He’s had a raw deal from life. Dealing with prejudice, accepting himself and having others accept him as well. Striving to be the best at his sport while also carrying a heavy burden of responsibility back home. He was definitely the one I admired the most, the one I wanted to see gets his HEA.
RELAY delivered a sweet and surprisingly romantic story about a second chance at a love that never could blossom. And it’s definitely left me intrigued to read the next one in the series.
