Orenstein (Love at First Like) is back with another fun and light read, this time focusing on the competitive world of gymnastics. Avery Abrams’s gymnastics career was over when an injury close to the Olympics took her out of the running. What’s worse, her best friend and teammate Jasmine ended up not only going to the Olympics but marrying their abusive coach, Dimitri. Meanwhile, Avery ends up in L.A. in her own relationship with an NFL football star that soon loses its luster. When they break up, she heads back to her hometown in Massachusetts. Things take a turn, however, when her former crush, men’s Olympic gymnast Ryan, calls her and asks her to help him coach an Olympic hopeful at her old gym. When she says yes, they do more than stick the perfect landing.
VERDICT Readers will not only want to research gymnastics moves and watch pro meets after reading this book, they will also fall head over heels for Olympic hopeful Hallie, and the dynamic duo of Avery and Ryan as they guide her and fall for each other at the same time.
