First off, I want to apologize to Nicole for the lateness of the review. My life this week has been interesting and to top it off Im trying to get sick. But thats no excuse but I do want to apologize.
Okay, now the review. If you have followed me for awhile, then you know that I love Ms. Flocktons work. Shes a go-to author for me because of what she writes about. Especially this series. Im an Olympic junkie. Oh yes, I sit and watch both the Summer and Winter games. I cheer for team US but I have

4 Stars!
A short but sweet read about two people who are driven but need each other more than they know.
Flockton has a knack for writing great characters you can't help but like. She puts just enough angst and the perfect amount of romance.
I enjoyed this book and I think you will, too.

My Rating: 4.5 Stars

Have you ever had one of those moments where you finish reading a book, or watching a movie, and find yourself smiling like an idiot? Fighting for Love left me with the goofiest grin on my face. Thankfully I finished reading it in the privacy of my own home; Im pretty sure I would have been on the receiving end of quite a few strange

This is a third in the series, set around the Rio Olympic Games and featuring athletes. Dane and Brooke met at the Olympics and had a thing going. It might have been more but with Dane going back to Australia and Brooke's home in the US, the practicalities of a long distance relationship meant walking away.

Now Brooke has a chance to train with a diving instructor base in Sydney, Australia, she can't help think about Dane who is in Melbourne. So near and yet so far. Only Dane is right there,

This is the third book in this series a series set on the elite athletes that aim for gold at The Olympics and what they go through to get there. This is American Diver Brooke Kings and Aussie Swimmer Dane Parklands story and one that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Brooke left Rio feeling disappointed at not getting a medal and now that her synchronized diving partner has retired Brooke has decided to go it alone but the coach that she now wants to train with lives in Australia and there is a chance that

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

4.5 Star Review Posted at

When her partner in synchronized diving decided to retire after the Rio Olympics, Brooke King changed her focus to individual diving and has been giving an amazing opportunity to fly to Australia and train with one of the best coaches. Focused on qualifying for the 2020 Olympics and hopefully win a medal, she cant afford a distraction. But sometimes fate has other ideas when she comes face-to-face with her Rio hookup, Dane Parkland, soon after she

In this third book of the Elite Athletes Series, we get to follow Brooke. We find her changing coaches, as often many athletes can tend to do to find someone that better fits with their style. What happens when Brooke decides she needs a change and wants to go from synchronized diving to individual diving? Where does she end up moving to, for a six week trial? Who is Susie Hamilton? What does she have to do with all of this? When Brooke goes to the pool to do a workout, trying to keep herself ...more

Loved it!

Brooke and Dane definitely can say the stars aligned for them. First they met in Rio and had a brief fling that left them wanting more but not doing anything about it. The second time they meet in the apartment complex that trains the athletes and its hammer down in the left lane from there! Their instalove is so sweet! Fighting for Love is a great short, fast paced romance story that checks off all the boxes for a happy ending romance!

The spark never died between Dane and Brooke. Since the Olympics they found each other living in the same city. Brooke is training with a new coach and made the decision to move to Australia. Now that they are together again they can start back up where they left off. I really like them as a couple and I Love Dane but he made me mad towards the end. I understand why he said what he said but they way he said it was just mean. But thankfully he comes to his senses and apologized. I wish this book ...more

This one feel short for me. I felt kinda dropped off in the middle of the relationship and then rushed to the end. They definitely did have sizzling moments between them was the only thing I loved with this one.

A great quick read. I enjoyed the drama and the seeing the characters get their HEA. It was a nice progression from use other books. Some steamy scenes, a little drama... good reads

Fighting For Love is the third book in Nicole Flockton's The Elite Series and it can be read as a standalone. This story is about Brooke and Dane who had a couple of steamy weeks together while on the Olympic tour, but when it was over so were they. Brooke's in Australia to get a new diving coach and who does she run into but Dane. I really liked these two and was glad they got a second chance.
