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.

My Double North Review ...
What do you get with a hot architect and an ex-professional wake boarder? You get chemistry,angst and whole lot more.
Ben Warren has many secrets but he has a passion for life. Sadly his passion is faded when his dreams get crumbled from a bad accident. Now he works at a shop and coaches others to help with their dreams. For now he is content being a player and living his life. Until Davis Fox enters the shop and changes everything. Davis wants to learn to wakeboard to get closer to his brother so he calls upon Ben to help him. What he didn't factor into is been instantly smitten with Ben.
Ben and Davis are at different parts in their lives. Ben's ok with hook ups and one night stands where Davis wants a relationship. Ben has never really had one before but there is something about Davis that makes him take the risk.
Even though Ben takes the risk he has to come clean with his secrets or they will destroy his future. Ben tells Davis some of his secrets but not all of them causing his world to quickly implode around him. The truth will always come forward but how you handle it is the key. Ben and Davis have a sweet steamy relationship. Together they make a great whole.
Vanessa North has a magical gift to get to the grit of the story and her novella type books. She gets to the heart of the matter quickly and efficiently with not all the other BS to get in the way of a great love story.
4 Love is worth the risk thumbs up!
