About the Author
Alex Brantham is a recovering ex-corporate slave, having spent more years than were good for him toiling in the commercial jungle. He found the escape tunnel in 2009, and ever since has been catching up on a long-frustrated need to write fiction. Of course, there were colleagues at work who thought that his reports and proposals had more elements of fiction and humour than were strictly required, but he now has the chance to do it properly, without being struck down by the boss’s red pen. Alex lives near Reading, UK, with his wife and cat.

It’s an unique read, offering a “behind-the-scenes” view of the Olympics. I felt as though I was volunteering in the event too.
The plot advances from a romantic comedy to an adventurous thriller. It’s refreshing to read a non-sentimental romance novel without the heroic protagonists who are perfect and beautiful. And his writing style is refreshing and direct, no over-inflated poetic descriptions that often slow down the pace of a romantic novel.
Graham, the narrator of the story, is a likable guy trying to recover from a broken heart, and like his failed romance, his actions seem to find him on the wrong side of the stick. Mishaps, mistakes, and miscues stick to him like glue, attracting everything dysfunctional. Through this journey, his growth is measured like the athletes themselves who after a few disappointments, find themselves rewarded just for the experience.
It is a "ripping yarn" told well of the trials and tribulations of Graham, the young man in question, trying to find himself again. You'll find out whether he succeeds by reading this book. It has twists and turns of a very unexpected nature and a lovely ending.
