Let me get the annoyance factor out of the way first. I really do wonder why do so many ebook editors (or would it be designers? I really have no idea, whoever is responsible for the layout of the book) seem to think that the *table of contexts* is a luxury in the book??? Let me give you a hint, it is *not* a luxury for this reader. I want to be able to flip between the chapters in the novel as I see fit and especially in the anthology there are stories which I want to read first and there are stories I may not want to read ever. Do not worry, I read all the stories, I do not do DNF reviews, ever, but I bought this book (and paid 9 bucks for it by the way, not cheap at all if you ask me) because I wanted to read two stories in it first an foremost and the rest will be wait and see. Yep, I kept turning pages till I found them, yep I kept getting more and more annoyed at the fact that table of contexts which could take me to the story I want just was not there. For this I took off one star without hesitation, but of course despite my annoyance I tried hard to be fair to the book and did not take off any more.

The anthology IMO was very strong. I love sport stories, and of course I love the stories about gay athletes, I think some of them in the subconscious way can make it easier for real life athletes to come out in a sense. But this anthology is focused on olympics and maybe because I still remember how very excited the London Olympics made me, I really enjoyed allmost every story in it. I loved the competitive spirits these characters showed, I loved reading about how much they sacrificed in order to do what they love the most - to compete at the highest level and how wonderful it is when love is in the picture too.

I bought this collection for Sarah Madison's story. She, as usual, didn't disappoint. That said, I found 3 other authors who I enjoyed so much, I tracked down other stories they wrote. Some stories in here made me roll my eyes, or just quit reading, but the other authors I discovered made the purchase worthwhile.

I agree the Table of Contents would have been a bonus, kind of like hot fudge on a really good chocolate ice cream. But if I'd been able to go immediately to the story I wanted I might have missed some amazing writing. This anthology covers the gamut from sweet to extremely serious, always keeping in mind the drive and dedication needed to compete at the Olympic level. Not all parents are supportive, nor are all teammates on your side if you're not the white bread all American competitor. And not all Olympic dreams will come true. I don't want to put in any kind of spoiler so you'll have to find that out for yourself.
Whitley Gray's story about the Olympic shooter was my main reason for reading the book and it was beyond excellent. But I would not have missed any of these stories. What a great anthology. Although, now that I have devoured and loved every story a table of contents really would be nice.

Personally, I love stories about athletes who are gay. We all know in today's society it's not always accepted to be gay and yet good at sports, and that these guys have particular challenges in keeping their personal lives private. Add to that the pressure from being an elite athlete expected to perform at the highest levels and you've got an explosive situation. The anthology has a good range of different Olympic sports, ages, etc displayed. If you're looking for an excellent read, try out this anthology!
