in Reading Order Guide:

OOOOOOH HIGHLY FORBIDDEN LOVE ALERT (that’s the author’s own warning!!) AND OH BOY!!!!!!!! I’m getting some fast and furiously-excited recommendations for this trilogy, and now I MUST know more!!! I mean SUPER-recommendations from our very own book crew. How can we possibly resist this enthusiasm?? Take a look:

Stacey: I have a recommendation!! Balance by Lucia Franco. It was so freaking good. I can’t wait for the second in the series. Holy cliffhanger! It’s a coach/gymnast forbidden love story.

Liz: I just finished Balance by Lucia Franco and OMG is all I have to say about that.

Ratula: Ratula: Lucia Franco’s much anticipated followup to Balance (Off Balance Book 1) – Execution came out on Monday and OMGGGGG it is crazyyy amazing. Taboo, addicting, pretty much a soap opera. Pretty much kindle crack and my top read for 2018.

Robyn: Good Lord, I need to thank whoever recommended Balance by Lucia Franco! This book is most definately forbidden. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it because of the drastic age difference, but something just hooked me in. I couldn’t stop reading this book. Now I’m on to book 2, Execution. These books are very well written and if you like gymnastics, it’s another plus.

Nay: I’m halfway through, and that one scene at about 43% knocked my socks off!!!

Robyn: OMG! Just finished Execution by Lucia Franco. I don’t know what to do with myself over these books! I was like, he did NOT just do that! But, then I was like, YES, yes he should do that…most definitely. Then I hated him again for doing that. GAH! My morals and ethics tell me I’m totally against this underage forbidden thing going on. But, then I’m like what if…..whah! I’m all over the place. Lucia please put me out of my misery and release book 3, which happens to be named Release! This a complete trainwreck and I really need to know what happens next! Don’t you have any pull on this Maryse?!

Nay: Robyn–I couldn’t have said it better myself! Kova with all his Russian hotness is one of the sexiest, most brooding, yet confident heroes I’ve ever encountered–and I’m crazy about him!! But I’m the same with with all the forbiddeny stuff. Gah! And with that…

Maryse: LOL, Robyn. Don’t I wish!!!! :P You guys are making me too excited about this series!!! Okay I’m gonna go research. ;)

About book#1:

Adrianna Rossi is no stranger to the rigorous demands required of her body. Years of pain and determination make her one of the best. Olympic glory is the ultimate goal, and she’ll do anything to achieve it. Even if that means leaving home to attend World Cup Academy of Gymnastics, a training center that serves one purpose–producing champions.

Perfection, precision, and dedication are required of his athletes. When two time Olympian Konstantin Kournakova is persuaded into training the young hopeful, he immediately regrets it. She doesn’t come close to his high standards. As the relentless pursuit of her dream keeps her striving, a passion is ignited within him.

Kova’s power and domination, coupled with Adrianna’s fierce tenacity, reveal there is more for her body to learn. Every interaction can be misconstrued, but there’s no mistaking the darkening of his gaze, the lingering of his touch, or the illicit image of his bare skin pressed against hers. Integrity is on the line. One toe off the beam and their forbidden desires could ruin everything they’ve worked for, throwing it all off balance.

I’m glad you’re letting everyone know about these naughty forbidden books Maryse. I still can’t stop thinking about the what ifs and where these books are heading plot wise. I feel like as a parent I need to take Ria aside, give her a big hug and explain some things to her. Kova, Kova, Kova I don’t know what to do with him. He’s hot and totally a Russian alpha…sigh.

I finished Execution last night, and OMG I LOVE these books! I inhaled both of them and was craving more. Kova is EVERYTHING! I can’t wait until September for Release!

book 1 amazing. I waited a whole year for this second book. It was worth the wait amazing. I think there are going to be 4 books. I wish I would have just waited for it to be completed but then again I am not sure I could have even left my house for a week until I finished every last word.

I think you should wait maryse then when you read and review them it will get me so excited that I can read them all over again.

If for any reason Lucia reads this blog, which why shouldn’t she, it’s the best book blog out there…..
If I happen to receive an ARC for release I might just give up my first born for it
