A lot can happen at the Olympic Games... you just have to get there first.
My name is Lacy LaBelle. I'm a swimmer, and my story is a rocky one.
My life hasn't been easy, my father kicked me out at sixteen making my dreams of Gold a hell of a lot harder. But with my best friend’s parents taking me under their wing, my dreams became something to strive for.
Now I've found my way to the Olympic trials, and nothing will stop me from securing my ticket to the Games.
Except, maybe my brain telling me I'm going to freeze, the girl who’s intent on seeing me fail, and not to mention the hot guy who’s taking my breath away.
Everything is a distraction.
Will I get my ticket to the Olympics?
Will my hard work see me swim the epic strokes of Gold?

Kissing him is the kind of pleasure that you only find in romance stories, the great novels of fiction that tell of epic love tales and happy ever afters. Kissing Coby feels like that. Like maybe that kind of fairy tale does exist. Like maybe they’re not just stories people make up, but true happiness exists. You just have to find the right person.
I’m not really sure what genre this book falls under other than a romance story, I feel that it’s very young adult and could be for tweens as the story itself was very PG and way too tame for my liking but the sexy scenes were decent so this story left me a bit confused as to what type of reader it was written for. There really isn’t much that I can find fault with this story other than it not being my cup of tea but I thought I would give it a shot given the Olympics were right around the corner and it may be interesting. Basically it’s about four young Olympic hopefuls from Australia trying to make the swim team and their trials and tribulations while doing so. This story details how some of their competitors try to sabotage them and how they persevered and is a story filled with angst that comes from young love, family drama and trying to make it in a competitive sport
Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she felt compelled to write the story brewing in her mind.
Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry, and get completely enveloped with the characters and their story lines. She feels completely at home when writing and wouldn’t consider doing anything else.
