Favorite Quotes

I know his type the minute he walks through the door. He’s at least twenty-five, has more money than God, and recently decided his dick is measured by the air he can catch on a board.
“What makes you feel alive now?”
“Riding wake early in the morning, before the fog’s cleared the water. Flirting with a much younger man. Sex. Candy.” I pause to take in the smile spreading across his face before I whisper, “Energy drinks.”
“Stop trying to get off and let me make love to you.”
Now I’m beyond confused. “Aren’t they the same thing?”
He sits up and touches my face, stroking along the side with one hand. “No, Ben, they aren’t. And it’s fucking tragic that no one has ever shown you that before. Close your eyes and put your hands behind your head.”

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis

Knowing he’s loved can make any man fly.

Fifteen years ago, Ben Warren was a wakeboarding champion: king of big air, ballsy tricks, and boned grabs. Until a career-ending injury left him broken in ways he still has no hope of fixing. Now he takes his thrills where he can get them, and tries not to let life hurt too much.

Then Davis Fox arrives in Ben’s sporting goods store with a plan to get in touch with his estranged brother by competing in the annual wakeboarding double-up contest. The catch? He’s never ridden before. It’s crazy, but Ben’s a sucker for the guy’s sob story—and for his dimples, too—so he agrees to coach Davis.

Davis is everything Ben isn’t: successful, confident, and in love with life. And he wants Ben to love life—and him—too. But before Ben can embrace a future with Davis, he needs to remember how to hope.
