Unquestionably talented figure skater Matty Marcus is willing to sacrifice everything for his Olympic dream, but his lack of discipline cost him the gold once before. Now the pressure’s on. He needs a coach who can keep him in line, but top coaches don't come cheap, and Matty can't afford to stay in the game no matter how badly he wants to win.
When a lucrative house-sitting gig brings him to rural Montana, Matty does his best to maintain his training regimen. Local residents turn out to be surprisingly tolerant of his flamboyant style, especially handsome young rancher Rob Lovely, who proves to be much more than a cowboy stereotype. Just as Matty requires a firm hand to perform his best on the ice, Rob shows him how strong he can be when he relinquishes control in the bedroom. With new-found self-assurance, he drives himself harder to go straight to the top.
But competition has a timetable, and to achieve his Olympic dream, Matty will have to join his new coach in New York City, leaving Rob behind. Now he must face the ultimate test. Has he truly learned how to win—on and off the ice—during his training season?
Wow! This book was a pleasant surprise, I'm not into figure skating but you don't have to be its about being strong, knowing your dreams and going after them but most of all love. Love Matty and all his brattiness, he's sweet, caring, moody and loving. My favorite though is Rob Lovely. He's as sexy as hell rancher, who's sweet and a gentlemen, he's loving and caring and dominant. Yummy he is hot ! So freakin hot! Ben his son is awesome, he's so funny and loving and understanding. This story has amazing characters. Matty and Rob together are perfect, they complement each other with their attitudes and love but also their dreams and willing to go after what they want. I cried, I laughed and I fell in love with these characters. Great story (only complaint a little long in the middle with Matty's training) but love Montana and the city and love Rob and Matty and the sacrifices they make, Matty's family is awesome so supportive..little light BDSM too. Would love to know what happens with Matty and Rob where are they now and would love to read by this author. 4.5 stars
