Review: Double Up by Vanessa North

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.

Double Up by Vanessa North delivered love and action on the water. Retired wake board champion, Ben, worked at a pro shop catering to those with a love of water sports, and gave private lessons. Davis, never wake boarded in his life, and wanted private lessons in order to get closer to his younger brother, rider, Ridley.

Good thing the book mostly took place in the water, because Ben and Davis heat up the pages. Both men are not without baggage, especially Ben. Falling in love and impeding paralysis, if he doesn’t have back surgery, were not on his too do list.

Double Up delivered a kooky and eclectic cast of characters, yet Ms. North pulled it off. The group fit together like pieces of a puzzle and formed their own family, united for a common cause.

The sex steamed and the relationship between Ben and Davis, gave credence to love and faith in a person can conquer all.

Double Up was worth the read.
