Cold War

This was an enjoyable short story. Dev and Mischa are rival skaters competing against each other. An explosive encounter in the locker room one day though changes everything for them. The two men head into the Olympics trying to focus on the sport as well as their budding relationship.

I love a good enemies to lover’s story and this one fit the bill. These two were hot together. Because of the shortness of the story it was a bit of insta-love. I would have liked to see this story be longer personally as I think it could have gone from a pretty good story to a great story. The characters were written well though and the story flowed nicely. The author seemed to have done a lot of research on the world of figure skating and that part was pretty interesting.

This was not my favorite of this author's work but it was still a fun read. This is definitely something I'll recommend to others.
