The Next Competitor: To win gold, figure skater Alex Grady must train harder than the competition. As for a boyfriend, forget it. The Olympics are only every four years-everything else can wait.

So it's ridiculous when Alex finds himself checking out his new training mate Matt Savelli. Calm, collected 'Captain Cardboard' is a nice guy, but even if Alex had time to date, Matt's so not his type. Yet beneath Matt's wholesome surface, there's a dirty, sexy man who awakens a desire Alex can't deny . . .

Cold War: American figure skater Dev despises his Russian rival. Arrogant, aloof Mikhail is like a machine on the ice-barely ever making a mistake. He's also sexy as hell, which makes him even more infuriating.

Dev and his pairs partner have been working their whole lives to become Olympic champions. He needs to keep his head in the game.

The very worst thing he could do is have explosive hate sex with Mikhail in the locker room after losing to him yet again before the Olympics.

But you know what would be even worse? Discovering that under Mikhail's icy exterior, he's Misha. His sweet smile makes Dev's heart sing, and his forbidden kisses are unbearably tempting.

Contains mature themes.

I’m a huge Keira Andrews fan and she can do no wrong, as far as I’m concerned. I used to be a figure skater, back in the day. Clearly Keira knows her stuff. She understands skating in a way that makes it accessible to the average reader. For those in the know, though, there’s that added layer. Also, she doesn’t sugar coat things. This sport is so expensive – as are most, especially at the elite level. Getting to the top of the podium is damn near impossible, and having the resources to compete is half the battle. Then there’s the competitive aspect of the sport, which Keira nails perfectly. I loved how Alex and Matt had a love-hate relationship that exploded into very, very, very hot sex. Through the roller coaster of competition, they fought the attraction right up until the moment they realized they couldn’t live without each other. I really enjoyed the story. As for Dev and Mikhail…even more competition. The story was written before the Ukraine war, so I had to set that aside and just focus on Mikhail – Mischa, as Dev gets to know him as. They’re both pairs’ skaters and they both have a chance to be the best. But only one man – with his partner – can. Right? Well, you have to read the story to find out and I have to say I loved my happy ending. Tristan James is a fantastic narrator and I thought he did a great job with both these audios. He’s a favorite of mine and I hope to see him do more of Keira’s stories in the future.

The skating is just as prevalent as the romance in these two stories. I enjoyed both books and recommend them if you are a fan of figure skating or enemies to lovers romances. Both had a good level of steam. \r\n\r\nTristan James did a good job with the narration.
