Published by Loose Id Genres: Contemporary, MM
Russian figure skater Mikhail ‘Misha’ Reznikov and his partner took the Olympic gold while the Americans Dev Avira and Bailey Robinson took the silver. Away from the press, the fans, and all the rest Misha and Dev were secretly a couple. They separately announce their retirement from competition and the desire to skate professionally or perhaps coach young hopefuls.
For the time being Misha and Dev agree to keep their relationship under wraps, only their skating partners know the truth. Dev is afraid they might lose lucrative deals if anyone finds out, but worse would be the repercussions to Misha’s family back home in a non-tolerant Russia.
Keeping their love a secret begins to take a toll. Their reasons are sound in their heads but hurting their hearts so badly. Hopefully they can set their secrets free soon. First thing will be to tell Dev’s mother. Yikes.
Holding the Edge focuses on the hurt caused by secrets and the inevitable fallout. Olympic skaters Misha and Dev are perceived enemies on the ice and lovers behind closed doors. No one would expect them to love each other. Their problems aside, Misha and Dev display an honest and sensitive love as they try to share their relationship with the world. A conflicted, sexy tale, Holding the Edge comes out on top.
