HOLD MY BREATH
NA Contemporary Romance-Stand Alone
Scheduled to release: November 18, 2016
BLURB:Fractions of seconds can do lots of damage. One decision can ruin lives. A blink can be tragic. And loving a Hollister…can hurt like hell.
I would know.
They say the average person can hold their breath under water for two full minutes when pushed to the extremes. Will Hollister has been holding his for years. The oldest of two elite swimming brothers, Will was always a dominant force in the water. But in life, he preferred to let his younger
brother Evan be the one to shine.
Evan got the girl, and Will…he got to bury all of the secrets. A brother’s burden, the weight of it all nearly left him to drown.
The daughter of two Olympians, my path was set the day my fingertips first touched water. My future was as crystal clear as the lane I dominated in the pool—swim hard, win big, love a Hollister.
My life with Evan burned bright. He gave me arms to come home to, and a smile that fooled the world into believing everything was perfect. But it was Will who pushed me. Will…who really knew me.
And when all of the pieces fell, it was Will who started to pick them up.
In the end, the only thing that matters are those few precious seconds—and what we decide to do while we still have them in our grasp.
These are a few things that come to mind while I was reading this book. Will and Evan Hollister were both competitive swimmers growing up. They had a best friend named Maddy whose parents were Olympic Athletes. One day their life is forever changed. Will's whole family dies in a plane crash and he is the only survivor.
As you could imagine this takes its toll on Will and his life spirals out of control. He loses touch with Maddy over the years even though they were best friends and he's always had a thing for her. Will never acted on his feelings for Maddy because she was dating Evan. Things are very different now since he has passed away. Throughout the story some shocking revelations are revealed and Will is painted in a whole new light in my eyes. I predicted this one secret but what happens next even took me by surprise!! This is my second time reading Ginger Scott and it was an enjoyable read. The book is slow paced to start but once it picks up you won't be able to put it down to the very end! This is a wonderful story about redemption and overcoming the odds and doubts we place on ourselves.
