Prompt: Dear Author,
I could look at him all day. But sometimes, when he thinks I’m not looking, he seems so sad…
Blurb: It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for Tyler Bourne to compete in Olympic synchronized diving with veteran Aiden Oxford. The last thing he expects is to fall head over heels for his gorgeous partner. Friendly but distant, Aiden keeps him at arm’s length, and Tyler knows his feelings are hopelessly one-sided. But as the Games begin, Tyler learns nothing is certain until the final dive.
I totally loved the prompt for this one. I always enjoy reading sports theme story only if they don’t get too technical. Keira didn’t overdo it with this shorty and both MCs are adorable! I loved the ending as well although I’m still yearning more from Aiden because the story was told through Tyler’s POV and it’d be fun to have a follow up and perhaps getting the gold in the next Olympics although Aiden’s pretty old here so a twist is in need if ever the author decided (for some reason) to ever come up with a follow up.

About the Author
After writing for years yet never really finding the right inspiration, Keira discovered her voice in gay romance, which has become a passion. She writes contemporary, historical, paranormal and fantasy fiction, and—although she loves delicious angst along the way—Keira firmly believes in happy endings. For as Oscar Wilde once said, “The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.”
