Description

Callie

Blood, sweat, hard work, and a disconcerting lack of tears—my entire life—was meant to culminate in a flourish of glory and significance.
I’d thought I’d always known exactly what that meant.
But I’d had the timing wrong by about three minutes.
I knew now.
This moment wasn’t everything. The one person I found myself wanting more than anything during it was.

Nik

One preconceived notion can haunt you for the entirety of your life.
I thought I owed it to myself and to everyone who’d ever backed me to do what was expected. What was right. What I was supposed to do.
But nothing is forbidden in love. Not circumstances or propriety or the denial of the object of said affection.
I knew now.
This was it.
If I wanted it, I had to take it.

This gymnastics love story is more than grips, rips, and battered hands.
For Calia Nickleson and Nikolai Bagrov, it was everything.

    ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange of an honest review!


    This is the story of Callia and Nik, a story of love, self-discovery and grief!

    Callia Nickleson is a professional gymnast , having already been to two Olympics and preparing for the third one. Gymnastics is all she knows, all she's been doing all her life, she doesn't have a personal life, hell , she doesn't even know what that is. 

    She is strong, stubborn and driven but also insecure , confused and conflicted with herself.

    Callia's gym is her safe place, the one place where at the end of the day when everyone has left , she can be herself and forget about everything else.


    Nikolai Bagrov or Nik, is a former fellow gymnast, tumbler (I hope that's right) to be more precise, who lost his parents 6 months before he is hired by Callia's father Frank to train and coach Callia until the upcoming Olympics.

    To say that he waltzes into her gym and her life and just shakes her ground is like saying the sky is blue! 

    He's pushing his way into her life, but he has the patience of a saint, he's kind and gives her the opportunity and space to be herself and discover who she really is as a woman, under the facade of an accomplished gymnast.


    Together they are maybe one of the most beautiful couple I've read about but timing and other people makes it difficult for them to make a smooth sailing through the beginning of their relationship. 


    I hate the fucking guts of Frank, Callia's father , and everything he did to them , all the pain and heartache they went through because of him.

    I won't say what he did but let's just say that he's a moron and a half!!! 


    I highly recommend this book! Laurel is one of my favorite authors and I doubt that that's going to change, i love each and everyone of her books!

    Buy it => Read it , you won't be sorry!
