Hold My Breath by Ginger Scott
Fractions of seconds can do lots of damage. One decision can ruin lives. A blink can be tragic. And loving a Hollister…can hurt like hell.
I would know.
They say the average person can hold their breath under water for two full minutes when pushed to the extremes. Will Hollister has been holding his for years. The oldest of two elite swimming brothers, Will was always a dominant force in the water. But in life, he preferred to let his younger brother Evan be the one to shine.
Evan got the girl, and Will…he got to bury all of the secrets. A brother’s burden, the weight of it all nearly left him to drown.
The daughter of two Olympians, my path was set the day my fingertips first touched water. My future was as crystal clear as the lane I dominated in the pool—swim hard, win big, love a Hollister.
My life with Evan burned bright. He gave me arms to come home to, and a smile that fooled the world into believing everything was perfect. But it was Will who pushed me. Will…who really knew me.
And when all of the pieces fell, it was Will who started to pick them up.
In the end, the only thing that matters are those few precious seconds—and what we decide to do while we still have them in our grasp.
I really enjoyed this story. I was able to get lost in the pages and the characters almost immediately. I am also embarrassed to admit that this is my first Ginger Scott read and she definitely did not disappoint.
I could completely relate to the loss, the struggles the family endured. It is such a challenge to just learn to accept things, deal with the pain, the hurt, the anger but also learn from it and move forward.
The love and the depth of the love in this story touched my soul. It was fantastic and amazing.
I will definitely be reading more of Ginger Scott’s books.
