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.
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.

Note from the Author
I want to start off by thanking you for participating in my cover reveal! I appreciate everything you do and this is no different.
I’m super excited about this book, having spent the majority of my young life in the all-encompassing world of competitive gymnasts. And it is all-encompassing.
You live and breath this sport, and for Callie (the heroine in this novel), an aging gymnast at twenty-six, it’s that way times a million.
Hopefully Nik is exactly what she needs to learn to live beyond that. 😉
As far as the cover goes, I’m in absolute, mind-blowing LOVE, and I hope you will be too. Each time you share, comment, gush, or swoon over my cover along with me, you make my life just a little bit better.
Can’t wait for you to read the book!
Thanks again. Anytime you need something from me, shoot me a message.
