Trouble with Gold
The best way to describe this novella is adorable. We have Ty Madison (aka Trouble) an Olympic snowboarder. Ty is aiming to win gold. However, his teammates decided to play a little joke on him. Good thing they did, because he was able to meet Nadia Hoffman. He's all about having fun, while she might be a stick in the mud. When she's around Ty, she starts to learn she can have fun and get what she wants. Verdict: CUTE.

I'm starting love stories with hockey player heroes. Colton Campbell is the captain for the American hockey team. He really doesn't have a problem getting ladies in his bed, but when it comes Brenna Jessup there is no winning. There's a couple of things Brenna doesn't like 1) Players and 2)Athletes. Sounds like Cole has his work cut out for him. All Brenna wants to do is do her job and get out of Switzerland intact. I really like this story. You have a guy trying to get a girl who doesn't want anything to do with him, makes for an interesting read. Verdict: LOVED.
The Girl Behind the Gold
In this story we meet Lia Milonas who happens to be a Greek aerial skier. Pretty cool. Anyway, she has a problem, and she's not likable. Lia comes off a bit standoffish, because she doesn't have a bubbly personality. Which causes problems when trying get sponsors. Then Lia meets Brandon James, who she believes is prospective sponsor. Nope, he's actually with the press. Lia doesn't do well with the press.Read more ›
But there wasn't a single story that I didn't enjoy. Each of them were pretty short, but none of them felt rushed or incomplete. I think that each of the authors did a great job at giving a cute, fun, sporty happily ever after for each of the athletes. I loved the setting of the Olympic village. I now want to read more Olympic themed stories. I think that is just such a fun backdrop for a love story. These athletes all work so hard, but they also seem like they know how to let loose and celebrate when the right time comes. Each of the stories also wove together a central theme of the legend of the ancient torch. The legend says that the holder of the torch will win the gold. It brings them good luck, but only for 24 hours. Then you are supposed to hide the torch and let it's magic work for someone else. How fun is that?
If you love the Olympics like I do, you will eat up Love and Other Games. It is pure sexy, romantic fun. Perfect for a theme read. It leaves me wanting more Olympic love stories. Make a part two!
*Disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my thoughts.
I loved how each author brought a unique voice and twist to their stories. The characters actually sounded authentic. I also really enjoyed the international flavor to the stories which really made it seem like an Olympic romance. I also thought it was cute that not every character was an athlete. Each one of these stories is HOT! Definitely a spicy read. I especially loved the Dirty Dancing reference by Ana Blaze. So funny! I thought all four authors really pulled off a great, sexy, and fun read.
I'm not normally a person who reads short stories, but this is a fun collection and a nice introduction to each author's work. The winter games tying them together was a nice touch. If you're looking for new authors to read, you won't be disappointed with this collection and it can point you in the direction of some great authors.
