From the USA TODAY Bestselling author of Scoring Wilder, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel.
I despise Erik Winter.
He’s arrogant and cruel—a man I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy—and by some twisted turn of fate, he’s my new Olympic gymnastics coach.
I’ve had to contend with gruff coaches in the past, but Erik is far worse. His stern demeanor complements a body built for intimidation, and his reprimands come from a mouth so cunning, I know it could strip me of my defenses—if I let it.
Though each of us would love to be rid of the other forever, we are bound to each other by need and necessity. I’m his rising star, his best shot at proving himself to his critics. And without a coach, I have zero chance of winning gold in Rio.
The easiest way forward would be to wave a white flag and make peace with the man I’ll be sharing close quarters with for the foreseeable future, but he is intent on war.
Fine. By. Me.
If he pushes me, I’ll push back harder. If he wants to test me, to play with my head, I’ll show him just how many boundaries I’m willing to cross. Because I know it’s not a choice between winning or warring—not if you can have them both. At the end of it all, I plan on leaving Rio with gold around my neck and his icy heart in the palm of my hand.
Brie is going to make it to her first Olympics this year and her training coach just got switched. She now has the famous coach's son to help coach her and her team in gymnastics. There is a major problem though, Brie is majorly attracted to her new coach, Eric. And he seems to want to play more games than either of them can afford to handle right now.
Brie and Eric are going to fight to win it no matter what. And neither one is really sure if they will actually be winning or losing.
This book was not at all what I expected.
It starts off very interesting with the plot and the animosity between the characters. But, then it seems to take a very odd turn for reason that don't really make sense to me. After that happened, I was having a hard time figuring out if I really liked it or not.
Brie was getting very difficult to like, and so was the hero. These two both were so cruel and hurtful to each other it was rather disturbing and frustrating. I really hated that. And it also felt like Brie was more interested in messing around than actually going to the "Olympics." When it seemed like that should have been her top priority.
Overall I ended up not liking this one. I found the characters not to be really likable, and some stuff happened in this book that was confusing, frustrating, and not explained at all.
