Book synopsis:

Sebastian Stewart was never Mr. Dependable; he was more the good-time guy who only wanted to swim, party, and ink tattoos. Until he cost his team the Olympic gold four years ago. Bas is determined to do right this time around—by his medley relay team and his rookie mentee.

Jacob Burrows is in over his head. The Olympic experience—from the hazing, to the endless practices, to the unrelenting media—makes the shy nineteen-year-old’s head spin. He’s trying to be everything to everyone while trying not to fall for his gorgeous tattooed teammate who just gets him—gets his need to fix things, his dorky pirate quips, and his bisexuality.

When Jacob falters under the stress, threatening his individual races and the medley relay gold, he needs Bas’s help to escape from drowning. Bas, however, fearing a repeat of his mistakes four years ago, pushes Jacob away, sure he’ll only let Jacob down. But the only path to salvaging gold is for Jacob to finally ask for what he needs—the heart of the man he loves—and for Bas to become the dependable one.


“How can you be your best when you’re not sure if your best will measure up? That’s the dilemma facing Bas and Jacob, as they deal with the immense pressure of swimming for Olympic gold while also trying to sort out their tangled hearts.” --Layla Reyne



Excerpt:

The curtain rattled closed, and Jacob’s heart sank, sure Bas had left. But it rocketed into his throat when, a second later, Bas, in his deep voice, asked, “What do you need, Jacob?”
“I don’t want to be alone.”
Bas’s hand fell gently on his back, a shot of warmth right where it’d concentrated earlier as he’d sat in the chair. “I’m here,” Bas said.
Heat purled, arrowing in a direct line from Bas’s hand to Jacob’s dick. Jacob wrangled himself free of his boxers and resumed pumping, harder and faster, so close to the edge as the fantasy revived behind his eyelids.
And spiraled.
Bas’s powerful thighs driving against his. His big wide chest blanketing Jacob’s back. Cheek to cheek, blond dreadlocks falling loose around their faces. Bas’s cock in his ass, where no one else had been before, and his calloused hand around Jacob’s dick, fingers entwined, jerking him off together.
“Let go,” Bas commanded softly.
Jacob came, a whimpered “Sebastian” tumbling from his lips.






*****

Bas and Pup or Sebastian and Jacob are two character who pull at your heart strings.  Both searching for gold but finding love in the long run.

It's been a long time but this is a story that I could read over and over again.  I love how different the two characters are, but in reality they are a lot alike. Both look out for other more than they look out for themselves, it pulls them together. And even though there are situations that drag them apart, they just cant stay away from one another. Both finding not what they want, but what they need.

I hope there are more books in this series, I would read them in a heart beat!
