Water. The place where I feel at peace.
Free from the expectations. Away from the judgement. Weightless from the obligations.
When I slip under the cool surface, I’m no longer sinking from the demands of family, school and the choices that I must make. Chase my dream of the Olympics or follow the expected career path? What will it be?
I’m not usually one to rock the boat – that’s my twin sister’s role. I find myself in uncharted territory when I meet Jett Decker on my twenty-first birthday. It’s not like me to get swept off my feet, but when I do, it creates waves with those closest to us.
Chemistry ignites, jealousy spikes and tension builds the more we’re together. Sometimes in real life the lines between what is wanted and what must be done get blurred. Not everything is crystal clear, like the line below.
“Ali has done it once again! This book is absolutely addictive! Once I started it I couldn’t put it down!” – Country Girl Book Blog
Buzzing anticipation. Floating weightlessness. Adrenaline rush. All the best feelings wrapped into an emotional high that never gets old.
I think I might be addicted to falling in love.
When rising rock star Jack Kingston comes to play on our college campus, I think he’ll be just another fix. Instead, he flips everything around and makes me question who I am, what I want, and why I do what I do. After he leaves, everything changes.
Pushing myself in the pool, struggling to keep up with my twin sister, it’s what keeps me from losing myself entirely. Swimming isn’t my passion. It’s my source of stability. When I find the courage to finally start pushing my boundaries, I discover success in ways I never imagined, both in and out of the water.
When Jack resurfaces, I’m forced to decide between facing my fears or letting them spiral out of control as my past catches up with me… threatening to pull me back under. It’s time to sink or swim.
*This is the second book in the Spark Sisters series but can be read as a standalone novel.*
“Kick is a book that has soared above all other books for me this year. It is the epitome of coming of age in the modern world. The romance is all-consuming and just down right beautiful.” – Cassie, Garden of REden Book Blog
