|Bestselling author Nicole Flockton writes sexy contemporary romances, seducing you one kiss at a time as you turn the pages. Nicole likes nothing better than taking characters and creating unique situations where they fight to find their true love.
On her first school report her teacher noted “Nicole likes to tell her own stories”. It wasn’t until after the birth of her first child and after having fun on a romance community forum that she finally decided to take the plunge and write a book.
Apart from writing Nicole is busy looking after her very own hero – her wonderfully supportive husband, and two fabulous kids. She also enjoys watching sports and, of course, reading.
This is my first Nicole Flockton book, and I really liked it! Fighting to Win is a quick story about a second chance romance set in Rio. Nicole had me hooked from the start. I loved these characters and was looking forward to their reunion. It was obvious that they still loved each other deeply and were lost without the other. Julia’s heartache was so tangible. I wanted to cry every time she had to face Mitch. I also liked the secondary characters. It was nice to know that Julia still had people who believed in her, especially when she had lost so much. Thank goodness Julia and Mitch both had friends who supported them and gave them a little push.
Given that this is an Olympic based story, it was fun reading it right after watching the diving and swimming events. It was easy to connect with the training, stress, and competition the characters were experiencing. The author did a fantastic job describing moments surrounding a competitive dive.
