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.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘HOLD MY BREATH’ by Ginger Scott:
This amazing new stand-alone novel “Hold My Breath” by author Ginger Scott is something to definitely read next. Author Ginger Scott is one of my favorites because she is awesome at blending a sports related aspect into an intriguing romantic story. “Hold My Breath” is written from the two main characters’ P.O.V.’s(point of views) which are Will Hollister and Maddy Woodsen.
Will Hollister is a swimmer, it’s what he was raised to know and what he was always good at. He is set to train, compete and to eventually follow his dream of becoming a professional swimmer. He’s been carrying a guilt inside that he put there himself due to the life changing events that he, himself, barely survived. His brother, Evan Hollister, have always shared the love of swimming growing up and gaining praise for their talents, while carrying similar dreams. There’s one person that Will and Evan have a long history with as well. She’s someone they grew up with, trained with, that seemed to bond with them both but Evan seemed to win her over. She’s now, also the one girl that makes Will feel things that he doesn’t think he should be allowed to feel. Her name is Maddy Woodsen.
Maddy Woodsen grew up around swimmers all of her life, which pretty much sealed it for her to be a talented swimmer as well. The childhood friendship and competitiveness she developed between herself and the Hollister brothers, lasted for years. That was, until tragedy changed everything. Now, that the Hollister family dynamic has changed completely, and Will Hollister is due to return after four years away, how will Maddy feel seeing him after everything again? Can Maddy deal with seeing Will again after so long or will he bring her pain?
Not only do these two have to learn to work and train near each other again, but Will may have some secrets that he’s not ready to share right off. What are Will’s secrets? Why does he travel to Indianapolis constantly? When Maddy finds out the truth, how will she handle it? This story will take you on a journey of heartbreak, a growing bond, and the struggle to gain a triumph after tragedy. Life deals challenges to Will, and Maddy may be the only one who can truly help him, if he ever is willing to let her in. I recommend this read for those who can appreciate a wonderful story about life, love, and living with hard choices. This was an enjoyable and riveting novel that really will pull at your heart-strings for multiple reason. It’s truly worth checking out as your next read! ❤
