About this ebook

Dive into this friends to lovers, forbidden, sports romance!

 Money, power, prestige…freedom

Perfect daughter. Obedient and helpful. My parents remind me of who they think I am every day of my life… never asking if I have dreams outside of their own.

As the only Coulter girl, I’ve always been the family’s glue.

Olympic qualifiers are looming, and the last thing I want is to follow the rules. One perfect night with the man of my dreams is all I can have before starting training with my new coach. 

Cole thinks I’m a spoiled little rich girl, and a liar to boot. How can I blame him? I loved him and left him, only to reappear as his new client. I’m torn between my obligations and my desires, and he’s the only one who makes me feel like myself. 

I can’t outrun my feelings, so I have to show him that together, we’re pure gold.

The sister's story! Echo is surrounded by successful males and just goes with the flow. Cole is a little bitter about being injured & forced to train others for a living instead of being able run competitively himself. Both of these character have a little growing pains that they need to get over and when they come to terms with that they become stronger and relationship ready even though they started out on opposite sides of the track. Very inspiring & at times nerve-wracking but entertaining romance, author doesn't disappoint. Enjoy learning more about this family, can't wait until their Grandfather gets his though & the father's health mystery is revealed.

I loved this book Echo: The Player is my favorite book so far. Echo is the only girl in a family of four boys. Her family takes advantage of her, but she also does not stand up for herself. Cole has issues with rich families. When Cole is hired to be her running coach the sparks fly. This is the journey of two people, learning about themselves. Echo learning to stand up for herself. Cole learning that all rich families are not the same. Now that doesn't mean some of the Coulter family doesn't live up to Cole's experience of the rich. Their journeys are fun and a roller coaster ride of frustration. When the frustration finely gets to Echo the blowup is so worth the book. My biggest complaint's with all the books is the endings. The siblings are all young so I don't get all the love, marriage and babies I want. I hope after the series is finished that Nana Malone will write a 7th book a few years down the road to see how the families and the legacy of the Coulter family grows. If you have read the first two books, then in my opinion Echo is the best so far and should be read. I received an ARC edition for my honest and voluntary review.

A well written, young adult romance, dealing with issues created by an autocratic patriarchal grandfather. Echo typifies most women's inability to say "no", resulting in the type of stress we are all familiar with. Just when Echo thinks she is reaching out for her dreams, they are snatched away by family responsibility. In addition, her well-meaning family make arrangements for her to be coached to ensure she makes it to the Olympics, on the assumption that what they want is what she wants as well. There were so many aspects to this story that women could identify with, not least of which was the pressure to acquiesce to the demands of her parents. After an exciting one night stand with Cole, Echo is horrified to realise that he is the coach that her parents have employed to ensure she makes it to the Olympics. Cole has had his fill of entitled young women, and when he realises that the girl he cannot forget is his new assignment, he is angry and assumes that he has been played. Nevertheless, the burning attraction between Echo and Cole persists, despite their best attempts to douse the flames. Unfortunately, Echo's grandfather, who considers himself an expert despite never having actually competed in the Olympics, meddles and insults all Cole's efforts to give Echo the best training possible for her abilities. The reader's emotions are engaged, especially when Grandfather Rory makes his entrance and one would dearly love to muzzle him. Although this book is part of a series, it is nevertheless a stand alone and the gaps are sufficiently filled that one is not left wondering what happened in this family saga in previous episodes. The book comes to a satisfying ending, albeit a little abruptly. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review
