#NewRelease #Reviews RELEASE by Lucia Franco @GiveMeBooksPR @lucia_franco_

Title: Release
Series: Off Balance #3
Author: Lucia Franco
Genre: Sports Romance/Forbidden Romance
Release Date: May 2, 2019


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.

Well worth the wait! Lucia continues to bring us another amazing book in the Off Balance series! If you love angst, heartache, and characters risking it all, then this book is for you! 

Adrianna continues to push herself through hell and back to get once step closer to the Olympic level in gymnastics. Her body is going through great physical and emotional stress with everything going on around her. How far will she push herself and at what risk? 

We finally learn some more backstory in regards to Kova. We learn more about his feelings and reasons for things he’s done. We learn that he is also struggling emotionally which I feel is very important to his character. 

I have to tell you, I’m super excited for the next book! I feel like their worlds are going to implode and I can’t wait to see how everything plays out. I can surmise what I think might happen and how characters will react but you just never know! Bring it, Lucia!

It's Angst and a Forbidden Age Gap Romance mixed with Gymnastics in Lucia Franco's Release. It is the 3rd installment in her Off Balance Series. Lucia has a way with words. I read this book so fast it left me with the most amazing major book hangover. Whether you are Team Kova or Team Hayden it doesn't matter Release is a must read. 

Execution left Adrianna pissed at Kova because he neglected to mention a major development with his fiancĂ©e Katja. Honestly, I'd be pissed too, but anyway here we are back at World Cup with Adrianna training her ass off to accomplish her dreams of making it to the Olympics. As she gets closer to this goal she met with some unforeseen circumstances. This is where Franco gets you another cliffhanger. Well played Lucia, well played.
