Laurel Ulen Curtis is a mother. She lives with her husband and son (and cat!) in New Jersey, but grew up all over the United States. She graduated from Rutgers University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology, and puts that to almost no use other than forecasting for her friends! She has a passion for her family, laughing, and reading and writing Romance novels. Oh, and she's addicted to Coke. The drink, not the drug.
Third time Olympic hopeful gymnast, Calia Nickleson, has spent her entire life teaching her body to be physically flexible. But when she’s forced to choose between glory and love, she learns that no matter the amount of effort expended, you can only bend so much before you break.
Nikolai Bograv, a former competitive power-tumbler turned elite gymnastics coach, is used to tackling challenges head on. But he’s never been faced with the one of a kind, powerhouse package that is Callie.
This story is more than grips, rips, and battered hands. For Callie and Nik, it was everything.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Life can be messy,
And love can be too.
Most people say that it’s not important where you’re going, but instead, how you get there.
Unfortunately for me, the journey to love was absolutely agonizing. Love and Hate wrestled with my life day after day, year after year, and the only way to stop it was to let one of them win.
I fought to love harder. But I loathe my love story.
