Personal Best: Book Three
Swimmer Mike Gauliet is on his way to an Olympic berth, sitting on the edge of fulfilling his potential and achieving the dreams his coach and lover, Jessy Turner, has for both of them.
All Mike wants to think about is swimming his laps faster than anyone else. Too bad things aren’t going exactly according to plan. Mike’s getting threats, and he’s afraid to tell Jessy and determined to handle things alone.
When the threats escalate to the point where Mike can’t hide them, though, Jessy takes over, moving Mike to a new training location, promising to keep him safe. Mike and Jessy try to go on with business as usual, but someone has such hatred for Mike that it seeps into their everyday life, straining their relationship, making Mike wonder if he even wants to swim anymore. Danger lurks around every corner, in and out of the pool, and while Mike and Jessy work with the police to discover the culprit, one attack leaves their life in shambles. Can Mike and Jessy find their attacker and get Mike back on track to a championship?
Mike and Jessy are back again and still working toward the Olympics. Mike is one step closer to getting there but someone is not thrilled about how well he is doing. This was a good read just like the other ones were in this series. Each book is one step closer to what Mike’s goals truly are which is winning in the Olympics. This book leads up to Mike making to World Finals. Sean Michael has a unique way of showing the struggles that Mike goes through to achieve his goals and definitely unique ways of helping him deal with stress. I enjoyed this read!!
Mike is killing it in the water leading up to making the World teams. His and Jessy’s relationship is getting stronger and stronger with each passing day both on a personal level but also on the professional level as well.
Jessy could not be more proud of Mike than he already is. Though at times he had to work to keep Mike on the right track or remind him to concentrate Jessy knows that Mike is special and will go all the way. He is just glad to be his coach on the ride to meeting his goals.
When threats start coming and Jessy finds out about them, he is determined to keep Mike safe and on track at the same time. But as the threats escalate, Jessy knows he needs to get Mike away from it all so he will feel safe but also not lose sight of his goals.
Jessy never expected for it to get to the point one or both of them end up badly hurt. But that is what happens and their lives may never be the same again.
Sean Michael has done a great job so far on this series. I look forward to the next one when it comes out. And I love the lead up to what is to come next!!!
