RELEASE BLITZ & Reviews by Jackie & Maimeo's Angels: Strokes of Gold by K E Osborn

Title: Strokes of Gold
Author: K E Osborn
Genre: Sports Romance
 Release Date: August 5, 2016



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.

This was a new author to me, not sure why I haven’t read Ms. Osborn before but I will certainly be looking into her books as I enjoyed Strokes of Gold.
This is a book about Lacy LaBelle, whose life hasn’t been easy for her and through sheer determination she finds herself in the fight of her life, to make the Olympic swimming team
There was action a plenty, romance and certainly some roller-coaster moments, not to mention that some of the drama had me on the edge of my seat.  
It was obvious that the author had done research on the Olympics; at times I felt I was a part of the crowd cheering not only Lacy but all the competitors on.
Will Lacy achieve her lifelong goal and secure a spot on the team or will she falter at the last minute and fail to make it?  You will need to read the book to find out.

What a perfect book to read just before the Olympics. This is a first K.E Osborn book I have read and I have to say it won't be the last.
This story is about Lacey and her friends, it follows them from the Olympic trials through to the Olympics. We not only get a romance we get a insight into the training and preparation swimmers go through to be the best and what some will do to get a gold medal.
The characters have chemistry and depth and it's a great summer read. The author either has a lot of knowledge about swimmers or she did a lot of research.  The Aussie slang was explained at the start of the book so no misunderstandings there. i love sports romance books but this is a first, I have never read about hot swimmers before but thinking about it they do wear those sexy speedos.
Really enjoyed this book

Author Bio

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.
