    One thought on “Synchronicity”

    1. ~3.5~(Edited to add images. Aren't you glad?)Sweet, mildly steamy story featuring two Olympic divers and SPEEDOS, y'all. (I hope Lance appreciates the beauty that is Tom Delay in Speedos, and out of them.)The promp image is all kinds of YUMMY, and the story doesn't disappoint. Wet men are hot. Wet men frotting in the shower are HOTTER.Plus. Canada!

    2. Tyler Bourne and Aiden Oxford are competing in synchronized diving at the Olympics. Tyler has developed a serious crush on Aiden in the last six months during their training. But Aiden keeps him at arm’s length, so Tyler thinks his feelings are hopelessly one-sided.The story has two separate storylines: one set in the present where Tyler and Aide are performing their dives at the Olympic Games, and one in the past, starting five days before the Games. The two storylines alternate back and fort [...]

    3. After the exclusion of his old partner from every diving competition due to steroid abuse, Aiden is paired up with Tyler – the youngest in the team – to represent Canada at the Olympics. Tyler has the hots for Aiden since first seeing him, but he desperately tries to keep it professional. I loved the way the story was told: for every jump descried in the present, we get to read about an event that happened during the days before. Synchronicity is a super sweet story and I would have loved to [...]

    4. 3.5 starsTwenty year old Tyler Bourne is on his first Olympic Games as diving partner of a more veteran, Aiden Oxford, after Aiden's long-time partner was caught on stereoid scandal. Tyler has a crush on Aiden but the older guy has been distant and doesn't have full faith on their chance at medal. So how can Tyler proves Aiden wrong on the latter while figuring out how to score a chance at Aiden's heart?-------I really enjoyed this friends-to-lovers story. While I hoped that there was more scene [...]

    5. Sweet and sexy They train together They dive together And everything in between A quick and sexy splash of happiness. Enjoyable read with creative structure as smooth and elegant as the sport it captures. Recommended.

    6. So sweet and steamy with my favorite kind of angst of want, doubt, insecurity and jealousy.It's the good ones that are always too short. Regardless, this checks off all my favorite things I like in a romance! Score!

    7. I totally loved the prompt for this one. I always enjoy reading sports theme story only if they don’t get too technical. Keira didn’t overdo it with this shorty and both MCs are adorable! I loved the ending as well although I’m still yearning more from Aiden because the story was told through Tyler’s POV and it’d be fun to have a follow up and perhaps getting the gold in the next Olympics although Aiden’s pretty old here so a twist is in need if ever the author decided (for some reas [...]

    8. *****Re-read: liked it just as much as the first time. I especially liked the flashbacks between each of the Olympic dives that drew us in to the relationship between these two Canadian divers. (Wow, I kinda wrote the same thing the first time! At least I’m consistent, lol).First review:Cute, sweet, short and filled with anticipation! I liked the two different timelines and the setting of the Olympics.

    9. Mmmmmmmm yes sports fic made me happy. Short, sweet and incredibly sexy. I don't even need dessert tonight because that was like a delicious chocolate cake of a read.You can read it for free here.❤

    10. 3.5*Aiden is on his second Olympics, his first diving partner was caught cheating.His new partner Tyler is young and on his first Olympics, but he also really really likes Aiden. But Aiden doesn't really seem to like him very much, or does he? The picture prompt was gorgeous and I like the cover the author chose for her story.It's told in a very interesting fashion, with each day and dive. I loved the setting of the Olympics and the Olympic village, and of course all the dedication of the athlet [...]

    11. I’m normally not a speedo fan. But every time the Summer Olympics roll around I tend to have a change of heart. :) Hello! Those guys know how to rock a speedo.So this wet gem felt like diving into one of my Olympic dreams! Every skin on skin contact, look, and dip in the hot tub fed the sparks and tension. I’ll be daydreaming about Aiden and Tyler long after the Olympic torch has gone out.Slippery, sweet, and sexy!

    12. 3.5 starsThis was really sweet. I loved the setting- the Olympics games.Diving is one of my favorite sports at the Olympics, so I was really excited about this one.Read it here for free if you are in the mood for ashort and sweet m/m story :)

    13. This is a sweet short story about two Olympic swimmers who find themselves attracted to their synchronized diving partner. They don't really rush into anything; they've been partners for 6 months and they waited until they were at the Olympics to act on their attraction. Not exactly the best timing since they need to concentrate on their game, but tension and pent up desire get the best of them. I wish the story had been longer because I wanted to see what happened after the Olympics. Do they co [...]

    14. It's a short read but I never felt connected, partly down to the way it's divided into different flashback sections (5days ago, 4days ago). The story is in separate blocks and I didn't like the lack of flow. I also found the pacing felt rushed.Took me awhile to separate Taylor from Aiden and they both sounded very young. There's a whole lot of dedication in becoming an athlete and I didn't quite get that vibe from these two.While I understand patriotism and an author setting the story in a local [...]

    15. 3.5 starsIt’s not everyday you get to read a story set during the Olympics. Will the pressure get to Tyler and Aiden? Can they keep their focus as their lives change forever? This is a sweet short about friendship and the pressures of competition.

    16. Chapters and dives in the olympic games finely woven together. The tension between the two slowly grew with the increasing demand of the competition. Lovely!

    17. This just plain works. Synchro diving is such a demanding sport and even in these few short pages I got that from these two. The Olympic games is such a great back drop to the story adding tension and passion in its own right.Tyler Bourne is more than a little awed at being asked to dive with Aiden Oxford after his long time partner was caught taking steroids. Tyler’s performing well as a diver, but realistically he just doesn’t have the same experience that Aiden does. Of course the fact th [...]

    18. 4.5 starsI wasn't sure about the flashback style at first and then discovered it was the perfect way to develop the relationship and the event simultaneously. It felt wonderfully realistic all the way along, and I agonized with and pulled for Tyler throughout. The ending made for a good stopping place and the story felt complete, but I can't help wondering about Tyler's back and how it may affect his future. Would love to revisit these guys and see what post-Olympics life is like!

    19. Really liked the style and structure of this sweet story about two Olympic divers. It was all from Tyler's point of view, which built in a little tension regarding Aiden's feelings.Sexy sweet.

    20. LHNB Story.Hmmme way the story was written was really different (for me) but it worked really well in this case. Quite a bit packed into this gem of a storyally enjoyable!

    21. A quick splash of happiness from this season's Love Has No Boundaries collection. The story's clever structure is as smooth and elegant as the sport it captures.
