Lucia Franco Î 6 SummaryI was so honored to be able to meet Kova and Ria They will forever be my favorite book couple Kova s pure alpha hotness I knew I would love him forever the first time he smirked at Ria Needless to say his ego was very full Ria Artscroll Children's Siddur is the cutest h I could have ever come across The drive that she displayed was amazing It was borderlinenspiring I have been n a funk for days after finishing Dismount I can t believe that s actually over My heart will never be able to fully be say goodbye I m mourning the loss of their love and journey It was such an amazing ride and the passion that Lucia Franco wrote with was so real and raw This Iron Cross is such a hard review to write I love and respect Lucia so much but I feel like I would be doing her a disservicef I wasn t honest Zachary's Virgin in my review Books 1 4 were astronomical The 5thnstallment was not what I was expecting These characters were not the original Kova and Ria The characters felt very off and there was no passion between them Books 1 4 the passion literally jumped off the pages Even Pfaueninsel in release I still feltt Ria was so differentinstead of being mature after everything she has gone through she seemed mmature than ever She was being the kind of h I dislike a lot I have always been team Kova I was very upset to see that this s not my Kova I have never known for him to let someone push him around or let the love of his life go I don t understand the separation It seemed off for these characters who were constantly sneaking around They risked so much just to have a separation The loose ends did tie up easily Honestly to easy There was so much drama that should have been settled especially with Katja The Olympics were very anti climatic I thought when we finally got here I would be giddy with excitement but I actually had to skim the pages Also I wish the whole GA was left vague for us originals I wish we got to see of Kova and Ria as a whole I would love to have explored them forming a real relationship Torah With Ramban's Commentary Translated, Annotated, And Elucidated: Devarim/Deuteronomy (Artscroll) instead of a forbidden one like having movie night or date night Things that fresh new lovers do I wanted to experience Ria getting pregnant again and sharingt with Kova I felt there was far to much back and forth that late n the series I by no means want to hurt lucia with this review I just wanted to honest I will always tell ppl how amazing this series s and I think lucia s an amazing person and author Woo Hoo Dropping all other books to go back through the first 4 Team Kova all the way Here t s and I m ready Books n Off Balance series should be read n orderBook 1 BalanceBook 2 ExecutionBook 3 ReleaseBook 4 TwistBook 5 Dismount five malysh starsIt was everything I hoped for but not what I expected Hopefully that makes some sense I will try to make this relatively

T enemy Time With just one hurdle left the clock s winding down to the final moment Adrianna must soon realize life Mardi Gras is than an Olympic dream Butn order to live and salvage them both she will first have to save herself OriginalOh my goodness This series Ghetto is like a rollercoaster ride and right now I feel like the cars suspended n mid air I was at least lucky enough to only read the series recently and not be going through this sweet torture for years like a lot of people How do you write a review that wraps up a series such as the Off Balance Series I ve got definite heart pangs and teary eyes as I have now closed the final chapter for Dismount This series consumed me last year and I binged hard Kova came nto my heart like a wrecking ball and forced a place there forever This story consumed me As a reader I always want to be open minded with any book You will never see me judge something or someone by their cover I will al 10 stars I m not ready to let this series goI loved every word n this book t was That Yankee Cat: The Maine Coon inspiredI loved this book so muchThank you Lucia Franco for this story Full review below slight spoilers ahead Received an ARCWe are a team I exhale younhale We fight together We work together It s an amazing feeling when you find someone who shares the same passion as you The possibilities are endless I am the beast beneath your beauty 4 yearsI have nvested four years Ghost Stories of Washington into this story When I first picked up Balance I wasn t expecting to lovet as much as I did It had so many things that I usually dislike American Espionage and the Soviet Target in books but at the end I found myself pleasantly surprised I was new to Lucia s writing style but I became a fan I stuck with her throughout this series andf you guys remember correctly I defended these books aggressively all over the Luxuspreissetzung in Der Theorie Und Implikationen F�r Die Praxis internet Lmao I still stand by my decision I didn t have anssue with the age gap and I actually Love Kova With all that being said buckle up t s about to be a long review I loved books 1 4 book one was very slow burn but I felt like the story kept an amazing paste n the other books Lucia s very wordy and while a lot of the actual books are about gymnastics I understood because t s such a huge part of Ria Kova s story I wasn t mad at The Thinking Beekeeper: A Guide to Natural Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives it The story developmentt got crazier as we went along lol SO MANY things were happening at the same time but I was still enjoying Urban Legend Detectives Case 4: The Samejima Case it and that shocked me a lot Usually I m out the door when the OTT drama starts So for me to still benvested Die vier Jahreszeiten into a story as long as this with so much drama says a lot about her writing style It s amazing At the end of Twist I was so worried about Dismount and looking back now all thessues I was worried aboutI definitely saw them Mituri, rituri, simboluri în societatea contemporană in this book My Dearest Malysh Encloseds my soulI am so heartbroken to say that I did not enjoy this book seriously guys I is my soulI am so heartbroken to say that I did not enjoy this book seriously guys I to give this book 5 stars just because I ve Kyoko Karasuma Bd. 5 invested so much of myselfnto t but when I started reviewing books on GR I promised myself that I ll always be honest so here I am being honest even f The Huguenot Sword it hurts andt fucking hurts This book was so ANTICLIMACTICI felt like everything was going Poetic Machinations: Allegory, Surrealism, and Postmodern Poetic Form in a circlenstead of progressingnothing happened In the Shadow of Empires in this book There was no character development becauset happened OFF SCREEN The only thing that happened that I wanted to see was Ria at Olympics and even that was bland for me because of how t was written There was so much wiggle room with this story especially after the huge cliff hanger n Twist Lucia had a million different directions to go I feel like with all the drama surrounding this series she played The 101 Dalmatians it safe and for fans of this series you will definitely be able to tell It took so much away from the story and I m so disappointedThese books are usually very long 4 600 pages and for met was always justified because of the content but with Dismount I don t understand why From Pocahontas to Power Suits: Everything You Need to Know about Women's History in America it was so long whent was just filled with fillers So many things about this book felt out of place and unnecessary Out of all the books this one was the one where I wanted to see Kova Ria s relationship actually develop but The Story of the Orchestra instead we got the usual back and forth and the one conversation they ve been having for 2 fucking years I felt NO CHEMISTRY whatsoever between them when I m used to their attraction burning up on the pagest felt so cold here I actually disliked Ria the most Only Say the Word in this book andt s so sad because I really liked her n the previous ones I felt like so much time was
Wasted Here When Wehere when we of gotten to see Ria grow nto her own and actually spend time with her n college when gymnastics s not consuming her life She s so young I wanted to see her blossom nstead she was whiny and unfair Talking Cures and Placebo Effects in her expectations with Kova I wanted to see Kova be the man she needed him to be I felt like we got so many glimpses of his loven previous books and I wanted to see t n full color hereInstead we got a Nothing Everything The Bewitched Wolf importantn this book happened OFF SCREEN Then there s the endingIf you ve been following me for a minute you know that nothing pisses me off than the author giving couples these huge year gaps at the end of a story So to say that I was upset with the end of this will be an understatement I was using so many obscenities and I didn t actually read the epilogue until a couple days after because I was so upset I honestly did not enjoy the epilogue eithe. Forced to face the last challenge of her gymnastics career alone While Kova the beautifully anguished man who has been at Adrianna’s mercy giving her everything she’s demanded has no choice but to walk awayAdrianna and Kova survived deception and be.
