Book synopsis:

Sebastian Stewart was never Mr. Dependable; he was more the good-time guy who only wanted to swim, party, and ink tattoos. Until he cost his team the Olympic gold four years ago. Bas is determined to do right this time around—by his medley relay team and his rookie mentee.

Jacob Burrows is in over his head. The Olympic experience—from the hazing, to the endless practices, to the unrelenting media—makes the shy nineteen-year-old’s head spin. He’s trying to be everything to everyone while trying not to fall for his gorgeous tattooed teammate who just gets him—gets his need to fix things, his dorky pirate quips, and his bisexuality.

When Jacob falters under the stress, threatening his individual races and the medley relay gold, he needs Bas’s help to escape from drowning. Bas, however, fearing a repeat of his mistakes four years ago, pushes Jacob away, sure he’ll only let Jacob down. But the only path to salvaging gold is for Jacob to finally ask for what he needs—the heart of the man he loves—and for Bas to become the dependable one.

“How can you be your best when you’re not sure if your best will measure up? That’s the dilemma facing Bas and Jacob, as they deal with the immense pressure of swimming for Olympic gold while also trying to sort out their tangled hearts.” --Layla Reyne

Teaser Excerpt:

The crowd noise was deafening, so loud Jacob almost missed the voice behind him. “Fucking great swim, Pup.”
Spinning around, Jacob spotted Bas, shoulder leaning against the wall of the tunnel. He hadn’t realized how much he’d wanted Bas here to celebrate with him until he saw him standing there. “Yeah, it was. I won a freaking gold medal.” He was about to step forward, make his move, because what else was he supposed to do with all this happiness and hope, when Bas held out his phone.
“We thought it was going to blow up the locker.”
Drying his hands on the towel over his shoulder, Jacob took the phone from Bas and unlocked it. His screen filled with texts and social-media alerts, so many of them in shouty caps. He opened the text from Josh first and dropped the phone.
By his side, Bas saved it from the concrete floor. “Hey, what’s wrong?”
Jacob shook his head, swallowing around the knot in his throat. With trembling hands, he took the phone back and opened the text again, turning the screen so Bas could see the picture of Josh and his dad. They were holding a US flag and smiling like they’d won the lottery. “That’s the biggest I’ve seen Dad smile since he came back from Afghanistan. I never thought . . .” He lost his words again, only finding them when Bas cradled his cheek. “I never thought I’d see him happy like that again.”
“That’s a good thing, Jacob. You did a good thing.”
“Yeah, it is. I did that,” he forced out around a riot of senses and emotions.
Happiness and relief.
Bas’s warm hand on his cheek, his blue eyes inviting.
There was only one place for all that to go. Time to grab hold.
