Review: Holding the Edge by Keira Andrews

Gay figure skaters keep their relationship secret—and end up on thin ice

Misha Reznikov has an Olympic gold—and a secret lover who just happens to be the silver medalist. Now that their competitive days are over, Misha and former rival Dev Avira are setting up house in LA and giving their relationship a shot in the real world. They agree that keeping their romance strictly under wraps is best for their pro careers and Misha's family back in Russia. So what if Dev hasn't told his parents, and they never eat out for fear of being spotted? It's not perfect, but they're together.

But as they prepare for a special holiday skating show on Christmas Eve in Dev's hometown, tension builds. How long can Misha and Dev keep their love secret—and what happens if one of them wants to stop hiding?

Aw! I loved getting more of Dev and Misha. And this one is told from Misha's POV, which was perfect!

Misha has won the gold and has decided to live in America where he can be free from the pressures he felt in Russia. He and Dev have been together since the Olympics, but are still keeping it all under wraps.

Misha and Dev really are great together. After the crazy tension in the first book, Cold War, I was really able to feel the chemistry in this one and how well they fit together. They have obvious love and affection for each other.

They had a pretty huge issue to overcome. One wanted to be out, while the other didn't, but it didn't become a reason for a ton of unnecessary angst, the story was still pretty light. I think that was due to the fact that they talked with each other and were supportive of the other's needs. They had a couple minor falling outs, but they handled it as two adults should. With communication and sex.

The first book definitely needs to be read first in order to really enjoy Holding the Edge, but both are definitely recommended for quick, lighthearted, sexy reading.
