Book Review: The Winning Edge by Keira Andrews


Can figure skating enemies find love off the ice?

After an explosive locker room confrontation with his Russian rival ends in the most intense sex of his life, American pairs skater Dev Avira is distracted to say the least. He’s worked for years to have a chance at Olympic gold, and he can’t let himself—or his partner—down. Playing cat and mouse with the steely and smoldering Mikhail Reznikov is the last thing he needs as he prepares for the biggest competition of his life, but they can’t keep their hands off each other as the Games approach. 
Dev soon learns that beneath Mikhail’s arrogant and aloof exterior is Misha, a passionate man who warms Dev’s heart and scorches his bed. They’re both determined to win, but for Misha his freedom could be at stake if he and his partner take anything less than gold. Who will stand atop the podium? And can secret lovers from different worlds make a life together once the competition ends?
This gay sports romance from Keira Andrews features enemies to lovers, two alpha men, sequins, and of course a happy ending. Content previously published as novellas Cold War and Holding the Edge.

5 Stars

I’m a huge fan of the olympics, both summer and winter,  and figure skating is one of my favorite sports. This was a great enemies to lovers story. Rival pairs figure skaters Dev, an American, and Misha, a Russian, were perfect together. The progression from enemies to lovers felt natural and omg, once they fell into bed, well, let’s just say it was h.o.t. Hot.

While I definitely enjoyed the romance of the story, I really loved reading the skaters compete. You can tell from the author's writing that she really understands the sport of figure skating.

The story was well-written and it flowed well. It had a good balance of steam, romance and sport. This was a really great read that I couldn’t put down and absolutely loved. Very recommendable!
