    3.5 stars- lacked a little spark, but still good

    I was so excited leading up to this release, so I have to admit I was a bit disappointed I didn’t love Relay more. There was a lot of good to this book. The characters were interesting with different dynamics and backgrounds, and I loved the set-up of Olympic swimmers with a romantic history training to compete in the Summer Games. However, the couple lacked the magnetism of Miss Reyne’s last pair of heroes and it took me more time to become invested in the story. While Alex and Dane didn’t quite hook me as much as Agents Irish and Whiskey, I did enjoy their story and am excited to see where the series goes next. Part of the draw of a second chance is that underlying connection that permeates all interactions. I didn’t get much of that in Relay at first. What I did get was hostility and tension between Alex and Dane, which made sense considering their sudden parting after a secret summertime fling ten years prior. Once I picked up on this dynamic, I was hoping for an intense enemies-to-lovers story. Unfortunately, their actions were a bit immature and dramatic, making it difficult to connect with the heroes at first and I really never got much of that spark I expected. That said, their story was sweet once it got going and I liked the resolution when Alex and Dane came together. I also really enjoyed the swimming and training aspects of the book, and the ending left me excited to see what their team accomplishes at the Olympic Games in Madrid. As this was the first in the series, there were plenty of secondary characters to meet and the little insights were certainly intriguing. I think fans of this author, fans of sports romances, and those who don’t mind some back and forth akin to an enemies-to-lovers romance will like this one. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
