Trouble With Gold (Love and Other Games) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Ty Madsen experiencing the chance of a lifetime. Of course that experience doesn’t start off too well. Nadia Hoffman comes upon the strangest sight. This is a story that will get you excited about the upcoming Winter Olympics. It reminded me how as a family we would watch the games together from the start of the opening ceremonies to the end of the closing ceremonies.
Some of you may remember the buzz around what went on with Ryan Lochte. We don’t see that trouble here but it does bring back the memories. When you think of Ty you could think of Ryan. Nadia is one of those people that we rarely see on tv – if at all. She’s one of those people that’s there for the Olympians. The author left me wondering what her inspiration was for this story.
Because we only see the Olympians on camera, we don’t know what they do in their downtime. This story gives us one possibility. Some are lucky enough to be able to travel and watch what goes on personally – something I’ve always been envious about. I think if I ever did have a chance to go, I would take this book along with me – a great way to set the mood.
As part of the story, a legend is mentioned. Never having been in the Olympics you have to wonder if this is part of the fiction or if it’s based on truth. For those that like to do research, after you read the story this may be something to investigate. But this story isn’t all about the sports but we get to see two individuals try to form a relationship. Being a novella I don’t know that I get a real sense if the story actually ends. You want to know where the couple goes from here once you’ve read the last word. Would I read again? Probably not until the next Winter Olympics comes around again.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Ty works hard and plays hard. He understands what a big deal it is that he’s made it to the Olympics but he’s not going to forget to have a good time when he can. Unfortunately that occasionally puts him at odds with Nadia.
Nadia takes her job as a volunteer very seriously. Her goal is to get a job with the Olympic Committee and this is her chance to show them she can be a good employee. Running into a nearly naked man, hand-cuffed to a railing in the snow, is not exactly how she imagined her evening going.
But the attraction between the two is apparent and Ty’s not one to let it go. Nadia is going to have a hard time resisting him when he puts his mind to the task of seducing her. And so are readers …
Trouble With Gold to be a cute (and sexy) little romance that knows how to enjoy itself.
