Release Blitz: Release by 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
The Off Balance series is intended only for readers 18
years of age and older. Reader discretion is advised.

Review by Jen Skewes

This series is going to kill me!!  In a really good way. After Execution we were left broken, in shock and needing more, at least I was.  After finding out about Kova and Katja I was shocked. All though truth is, I really shouldn't have been. I should have known that Ms. Franco would not be kind to our hearts and would throw a twist in there, leaving us hanging on waiting for more.  

When I started Release I really had no idea what to expect. I just knew that I would need to hold on tight for the ride. All I knew was that Ria felt completely betrayed and broken and that Kova was the cause of it all.  Where do they go from here? Can they get past this?  And more importantly, why?  I knew in my heart that Kova has a good reason for what he did, and I know how he truly feels about Ria. When the two of them are together you feel the passion, the intensity, the chemistry and the love between them.  They need each other in ways they don't need anyone else. I fell in love with Kova even more in this one. I know that I have said this before but I do not care how wrong it is for the two of them to be together. When they are together, you just forget the age difference, you forget that Kova is her coach, because all you see is them and everything about it feels right.  

I am not going to go into any detail about this book.  If you wreathe first two, which you mist do, you don't need to know anything other than what the blurb says. This is the third book in this series and I will be honest at some point when you get the the third book in the series you are afraid to read it because you are afraid that it just will not be as good.  But not with this series. Lucia Franco is a brilliant writer who knows how to keep this story going.  She knows how to pull every single emotion, whether good or bad, out of you.  She knows how to make you feel the passion as it explodes off the pages. I devoured this book and never wanted to put it down or for it to end.   She has this ability to suck you write in, making you truly feel like you are a part of Kova and Ria's world. And this one was no different. From the first page to the very last, I was captured by her words. 

I loved the growth that we saw in bother characters   Ria finally standing up  for herself, and trying to protect her heart.  And we see more of Kova's feelings in this one. He lets his guard down slightly and I loved watching it all happen.  In true Lucia Franco form we are left with another big cliffhanger.  You will be left wondering why did she have to go there. I need to know what happens next.  I need so much more of these characters and while I wonder how in the world this will all work out between them, or if even can, I will wait and have faith is Ms. Franco and their story.  I will be waiting for Twist, as patiently as I can.
