|Brooke King has always dreamed of winning gold. With the Rio Games finished and no gold hanging around her neck, she’s more determined than ever to do whatever is needed to win, including going solo and moving to another country for a shot with a new diving coach. The last person she expects to see is her sexy Rio fling, Dane Parkland.
Dane is riding high after a successful Olympic Games. Relocating to follow his longtime coach is a no-brainer for him. Settling into his new home he’s stunned when he finds Brooke living in the same complex. The girl he hasn’t been able to forget.
Will Brooke and Dane fight to turn short-term fun into long-term love? Or will career ambitions, past hurts, and big decisions prove too much to overcome?
Brooke and Dane are my favorite couple in this series. Fighting for Love is a semi-second chance romance. These two athletes spent a couple of hot and heavy weeks together at the Olympic Games with no expectations of continuing on once they headed home. But their chance meeting in Australia forced them to rethink what they had experienced a few weeks back and their true feelings for one another.
The author did an excellent job of developing these characters and their story within the span of this novella as well as conveying their emotions. The passion was palpable. And I loved the angst inducing twist at the end. Their struggle to figure out how each other fit into their lives and plans for the future felt real. Having 2 Olympic athletes as main characters is unique in the sense that they have similar goals and needs in their lives. Each person has a strict regimen for everything they do as well as little control over their time. Their main goal is to be the best. So how are they supposed to make it work? Can they have it all? And have they found something that means more than winning?
