When he was sixteen years old, Rich Miller saved a young man from drowning at his local pool. Little did he know that years later, as a senior in college and Olympic diving hopeful, Rich would meet up once again with Johnny Milloway, now a big football player – and when Rich says big, he really means ‘bear’.

I first read this book, then had the pleasure of listening to the audio version, narrated by Jared Bradford.

Here are my original thoughts from when I first read the story... Max Vos is my hero - I was craving a sweet story with sexy athletes at it's heart and he delivered!

This is a college story. Rich is a champion diver and Johnny is a star football layer, a few years younger than Rich. An incident in their past, where Rich saved Johnny's life, provides a bond that starts their friendship when they meet again years later.

This story packs a lot in, from Rich being bullied (and Johnny of course standing up for him!), Rich's issues with his father, Johnny's awakening sexuality and some really dumb (and totally annoying) stuff done by Johnny. Yes, Johnny did something really stupid!

There is obviously a deep emotional connection between Rich and Johnny, well before they acknowledge it to each other. And the sex...let's just say that for two sweet characters, the sex can get downright dirty!

I adored cousin Anita - every family needs someone who pulls no punches and gets straight to the point - honest, funny and accepting! And Mr and Mrs Milloway Johnny's parents, were wonderful as well. They seemed to know more about Johnny than he knew himself.

This book has it's sweet moments and it's intense sex and a lovely emotional happy ending. It might be a bit over the top in places for some but I was totally in the mood for the emotional romantic bits! "He propelled himself off the tower over the shimmering water into a swan dive, his body, mind and spirit free. Free to love and be loved. And he flew higher than he had ever flown before, with love uplifting him, keeping him in flight. Free."

So what did I think when I listened to the audio version? Did it change my opinion of the story?

I enjoyed Jared's narration. He did a great job of bringing the characters to life. It was more than pure reading of the story, he captured the characters and emotions well. Sometimes I worry about female voices but there was no need in this case. Jared did a fine job of voicing Mrs Milloway and Anita. I loved Anita! Mrs Milloway's accent was unusual, but I have a crap ear for accents so I was never going to pick what country it was anyway (I think it was meant to be Greek). I smiled when Jared spoke Johnny's lines, with his mouth full of pizza. I could picture the narrator munching away while he was recording but I'm sure there's a secret narrator trick to capturing that particular effect, otherwise Jared would weight a ton :)

Overall, great story and narration.
