Gay figure skaters keep their relationship secret—and end up on thin ice

Misha Reznikov has an Olympic gold—and a secret lover who just happens to be the silver medalist. Now that their competitive days are over, Misha and former rival Dev Avira are setting up house in LA and giving their relationship a shot in the real world. They agree that keeping their romance strictly under wraps is best for their pro careers and Misha’s family back in Russia. So what if Dev hasn’t told his parents, and they never eat out for fear of being spotted? It’s not perfect, but they’re together.

But as they prepare for a special holiday skating show on Christmas Eve in Dev’s hometown, tension builds. How long can Misha and Dev keep their love secret—and what happens if one of them wants to stop hiding?

Caroline’s View:

This was a great ‘after the fact’ story for everyone wanting to catch up with Misha and Dev after Cold War.

Misha and Kisa had won their Gold Medal at the Olympics which should have won Misha his freedom to finally live his life as he wanted in America. The reality of life was not that simple and now he is months down the line, still in a relationship with Dev, but still hiding and not living as he wants. There is money from shows to be concerned with, there is the risk to his family back in Russia, there are Dev parents, there are Bailey and Kisa and there are Misha’s own personal fears. The list is never ending but the more his feelings grow for Dev the more difficult this ‘caged’ life becomes.

Being in love with someone but having to hide them is proving more difficult to do every day. When Misha’s friends and families disagree with his decision and push him to live more openly and honestly there is only one person left to convince and he is uncertain how Dev will feel. As the show they have been rehearsing for begins Misha is more certain than ever that he can no longer hide is emotions.

Holding the Edge is a story of facing your fears and finding that not everything is as bad as you have built it up to be. It was the final hurdle for Dev and Misha and one Misha hopes they can take together.
