Blurb: After winning Olympic gold four years ago, Justin retired from swimming, and he’s been floundering ever since. The Fourth of July finds him contemplating doing something stupid, so Justin calls up his former coach, Chris Jarvis. To his surprise, Coach answers.
When Justin retired, Chris cut all ties with the swimmer he’d fallen in love with. He never wanted Justin to love him just because it was easy. But he’s been waiting for Justin to reach out, and he’ll gladly take Justin back into his life.
When he finds out Justin is drowning in a pool of self-doubt and the belief that his happy years are behind him, Chris realizes he made a mistake letting go so suddenly, and that Justin needs structure and a firm, dominant hand to keep him on the right track. It’s time to remedy that error—as long as he can convince Justin that it’s really love.

Review: Chris is ecstatic when Justin reaches out to him until he sees how Justin is depressed. He now knows that he should have never walked away and sets things right between them while at the same time helping Justin with his issues.
Justin has doubts about himself. Most people do but Justin in swimming in it. He reconnects with his coach Chris in attempt to see past his issues. What starts out as friendship quickly develops into some hot scenes between the two.
As is the case with most of this authors books there is a lot of sex in it. Though I don’t mind a scene here or there I am finding more and more authors are adding an overabundance of sex scenes to their stories for some reason. But the scenes fit this story.
