Olivia Greenwood is a gymnast, who is recruited to train with an elite gymnastic’s company in Paris, France. She is from a small town in North Carolina. It is a place where everyone knows everyone. Olivia has known most, if not, all the boys in town all her life, so she has not really kiss a anyone before. She meets a man, Will, on the plane to Paris. He flirts with her, and Olivia tells him a lot about herself. This being her first time away from her parents, Olivia is excited and nervous at the same time. She is a very smart, good girl. Olivia has spent most of her life training to become a talented gymnast. She knows that she has been given a wonderful opportunity to train with a sexy new coach. After arriving at the school, Olivia meets her roommate, Maggie. The two girls have some things in common. Maggie takes Olivia out to see the city. Then later they are invited out to a party. Olivia knows that it would not be wise, but goes anyways with Maggie. Olivia should have listened to her instincts, because the girls’ night doesn’t turn out how they ever imagined.

I love that Olivia stands up for her new friend. She tried to be brave in the face of terror. After Max rescues her, Olivia believes that he is her hero. Max knows / believes that he is not worthy of being Olivia’s or anyone’s hero. Olivia stands by him no matter what and has faith in Max. I loved that Max was very sweet, kind and a gentlemen to Olivia, but he will protect her and do anything for her. Max would kill for her.
