Publisher's Summary

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.

solid listen

These arent my fav Keira Andrews but i still love everything she writes. Only thing is i bought these automatically without listening to the sample. Nothing against this narrator i just dont prefer his tone, and some of the accents were a little much. These are classic feel good books though, so I am forgiving 😅💜

2 good books, well worth the credit

2 really strong stories by Keira Andrews. The Next Competitor is a single POV of a singles skater while Cold War is a pairs skater and is broken into two parts where each part is in the POV of one of the MCs. They both take place on the run up to the Olympics (different years). Tristan James does a really good job on the accents of the various characters and it is easy to know who is talking, but I wish he had emoted more during the really emotional moments, both the good and bad.

If was okay

This book was ok, but I never fully got into either story. The pace dragged a bit, and one of the main characters in the first book was hard to like. I much prefer other books by this author.
