Fractions of seconds can do lots of damage. One decision can ruin lives. A blink can be tragic. And loving a Hollister…can hurt like hell.

I would know.

They say the average person can hold their breath under water for two full minutes when pushed to the extremes. Will Hollister has been holding his for years. The oldest of two elite swimming brothers, Will was always a dominant force in the water. But in life, he preferred to let his younger brother Evan be the one to shine.

Evan got the girl, and Will…he got to bury all of the secrets. A brother’s burden, the weight of it all nearly left him to drown.

The daughter of two Olympians, my path was set the day my fingertips first touched water. My future was as crystal clear as the lane I dominated in the pool—swim hard, win big, love a Hollister.

My life with Evan burned bright. He gave me arms to come home to, and a smile that fooled the world into believing everything was perfect. But it was Will who pushed me. Will…who really knew me.

And when all of the pieces fell, it was Will who started to pick them up.

In the end, the only thing that matters are those few precious seconds—and what we decide to do while we still have them in our grasp.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

This is the first Ginger Scott book I’ve delved into and it sure won’t be the last. There’s so much to love about this book. The one thing that elevated above most was  the character building.

I wasn’t all that impressed with the hero of the story – Will Hollister. In fact during those first few chapters I was wanting and waiting to meet his brother Evan. He was painted as the golden boy, Will? Not so much.

As the story went on and his mysteriousness faded away my opinion changed completely. He wasn’t what I expected at all. He was amazing. He had a heart of gold and his counterpart – Maddy was too.

Having experienced a significant loss they both deserved peace and happiness. And although I felt a degree of uncertainty with their pairing at first the author proved to me repeatedly just how great they were together.

If you are looking for a well-written love story that is full of deep-seated emotions with strong sporty undertones choose this book. I personally loved it and can not wait to read more from this new-to-me author.

The Verdict:
