Relay (Changing Lanes, #1) Read Online Free - Captain is not a title Alejandro “Alex” Cantu takes lightly. Elected by his teammates to helm the US Men’s Swim Team, he proudly accepts the role, despite juggling endless training, team administrative work, and helping out on the family farm. And despite his ex-lover, Dane Ellis—swimming’s biggest star—also making the Olympic Team.
Dane has been a pawn in his celebrity parents’ empire from crib to pool, flashing his camera-ready smile on demand and staying deeply in the closet. Only once did he drop the act—the summer he fell in love with Alex. Ten years later, Dane longs to cut his parents’ strings, drop his too-bright smile, and beg Alex for another chance.
Alex, though, isn’t ready to forgive and forget, and Dane is a distraction he doesn’t need on his team, until an injury forces Alex to accept Dane as his medley relay anchor. Working together, their passion reignites. When Dane’s parents threaten reprisal and Alex is accused of doping, the two must risk everything to prove Alex’s innocence, to love one another, and to win back their spots on the team, together.

I was so excited for this book and trust me when I say I wanted so badly to love it. There were things that I liked but on the whole it was mostly a miss for me. However, please bear in mind this is coming from a sports fanatic so, grain of salt.
It started off rough. Both Dan...

Decent story that gets bogged down with melodrama.
When I read a sports story about Olympic athletes I honestly expect something more... realistic. I mean, these guys acted like children. I wanted more discipline or something, something to make this story feel more grounded.
There is so...

He'd loved Alex from across the pool and across a dorm room, then from across the country and across the years. Across everything that had stood between them.
Oh the HATE LUST is strong in this one!
Dane and Alex were each other's first loves, and 10 years ago Dane turned his b...

Una decepción. Llevaba tiempo esperando que se publicara, ¿qué puede ser más apetecible que un libro de nadadores? Poca cosa. Pero al final, es la historia la que ha resultado poca cosa.
Alex y Dane y su amor de segundas oportunidades se queda en un bluff, con un desarrollo de los protagonistas mu...

I'm not really sure how I feel about RELAY.
The beginning of the first book in Reyne's new series started off pretty rocky. We have almost-thirty year olds acting like children, causing problems for their team (Olympic mind you, not some intramural gang), which thankfully started to mellow out ne...

Alex Cantu is Captain of the US Swim Team getting ready for the Olympics in Madrid. Although he didn’t really want to be Captain, he takes his position seriously working with the Olympic veterans...

While I didn't enjoy this one *quite* as much as the Irish and Whiskey series, it was still good.
Yes, there's some martyrdom going on with Dane and some lack of communication but I was still almost always engaged in the story.
My one complaint would probably be Dane's heinous parents. And while,...

I have to admit that the cover whore in me was immediately intrigued- cause, well gorgeous cover! Then the blurb finished hooking me in.
Relay by Layla Reyne was different than I anticipated but in a right way. I was expecting a fluffier enemies to lovers story. You know, some UST that eventual...

Review also on my blog • Twitter • Bookstagram
I received an arc from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Relay follows Dane and Alex, short for Alejandro. Alex has just been made captain of the US Men's Swim Team, while being openly gay and Mexican. Dane is a star swimmer...

There's a reason Layla Reyne is on my Must-Buy list; only she could get me this hyped about a swim team. It'd be easy to fall back on tropes with so many pieces to juggle, but she never once loses her footing. The ensemble team is lovingly crafted, with personalities and stories of their own, and...
