Blurb:After a scandal of Olympic proportions, Vince Dawson lost his job as a diving coach and is on a downhill slide. So when he sees Austin Brody at a local pool, diving like a trained athlete, he thinks he’s found his ticket back to the big leagues.
Austin thinks Vince is crazy for wanting him to dive competitively. He dives for beer and smokes, while working double shifts as a welder. Still, he’ll give training with Vince a shot.
But Austin isn’t willing to let Vince rule his life, and Vince—used to hopeful young athletes folding under pressure from him—finds Austin baffling… and hot. Even if they can work together and become more than friends, they still have a long way to go before they’ll be ready to compete.

Review: Ex professional diving coach Vince Dawson is down on his luck. When he sees Austin Brody diving at a local pool he thinks his life about to make a turn for the better. But only if he can convince Austin to start training.
Austin is a fly by the seat of your pants kind of guy and does not like rules. So this made an interesting story that much more to me. It amazed me how Vince and Austin made things work both professionally and personally considering how different they are from each other.
