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.

5 Release Stars ⭐️

There are taboo stories that make us slightly uncomfortable and then there is the ‘Off Balance’ series.
Make no mistake, this series is the real deal.

Release cannot be read as a standalone. It must be read after Balance and Execution.

This is a significant age gap romance. It is the forbidden story of Russian coach Kova and his young protégé gymnast Ria. Lines became blurred when they entered into a sexual relationship.  This series is filled with high octane angst, heartbreak but also love.
If you are not yet put off; this series is pure insanity. It is brilliantly written, seductive, addictive and gut wrenching.  Be prepared to experience many emotions….not all good.
If you are into taboo reads, you are missing out by not reading this series.

Lucia Franco was true to her words. I did need a pack of cigarettes and vodka to read this book!

As this is only book 3, Release ends with a cliffhanger.
