Release Blitz! Release By Lucia Franco

After Kova’s devastating betrayal, Adrianna must become her own champion and place her Olympic dream ahead of all else. In doing so, she ignores the warning signs as both the extreme training and unending heartbreak begin to take their toll.

There is no atoning for what Kova did. The vow he made cannot be undone. With boundaries set and lines clearly defined, Kova will now have to be the one to relinquish control in order to regain Adrianna’s trust.

Though the dynamics shift between coach and gymnast, nothing can prepare them for the agonizing truth that is to come. Fighting for a dream becomes only half the battle when Adrianna’s fate is sealed, leaving them both with their biggest challenge yet.

** Author note **

Much like a student-teacher novel, the Off Balance series is a highly forbidden romance story between a gymnast and a coach. If you find this genre of novels to be not to your liking in any way, shape, or form, this series is not for you.
This novel is purely fictional and does not reflect on real-life events. Gymnastics is a hands-on sport that involves many hours of close contact with an instructor. My main goal was to focus not only on the beauty of the sport in detail, but also what goes on behind closed doors and how working with a coach for nearly forty hours a week can evolve into something more. This story is meant to push you, to take you outside of your comfort zone. I hope you take the plunge with an open mind before making judgment.
The Off Balance series is intended only for readers 18 years of age and older. Reader discretion is advised.
Can someone check me for a pulse because I am pretty sure Lucia Franco just killed the book whore with Release! I mean GAH! She had already decimated my heart and soul with Balance and Execution, but with Release, my heart stopped more than once. The angst, the drama, the emotions, the push and pull between Ria and Kova, the added connection now between Ria and Hayden and you have the recipe for an emotional, unforgettable read that will make you say fuck sleep, who needs food anyways. I have stated before these books are not short by any means so when I say I binged the entire book in a little over a day I meant what I said about not needing food or sleep. Make sure you have read Balance and Execution first before reading Release because you will be lost if you haven’t.

The devastation that Ria felt after Kova’s betrayal plays a strong role in who she is now. Ria’s heart was completely broken by Kova and it is something that she can’t move past. Her gymnast career needs to have her one hundred percent focused if she is to make her dreams of going to the Olympics true. Exhaustion, injury, and secrets are slowly chipping away at Ria health. Ria tries to move past Kova, putting him in his place as a coach only, but is she strong enough to not cross that line again when Kova slowly chips away at the ice around her heart that he caused? Add Hayden into the mix and things have gotten interesting to say the least. I was so angry at Kova going into this book, but I have to admit that ever so slowly he works his way into my heart and I start to become part of the #TeamKova fan club. We see a side of Kova that I never thought we would see, a part of him that shows he isn’t as unaffected as he wants us to believe.

I can’t believe we have to wait for the next book! I have been in a book hangover for days and I don’t see it going away anytime soon. And that cliffhanger? Fuck I screamed and threw my kindle when I got there. Lucia Franco knows how to kill us with her well executed cliffhangers that keep us wanting more right then.  Release is another angst filled masterpiece that has this book whore once again looking for the pieces of my heart and soul that have been stolen away from me by Kova and his Malysh.
