Description

Gymnast Caroline Kepler has three state balance beam titles, a new trick even most elites can't do, and chronic, undeniable back pain. While she might never be an Olympian, she has dreams of leveling up to elite, making Nationals, and competing in college. But when one epic face-plant changes all that and Caroline's back pain goes from chronic to career-ending, her dreams are shattered and her life is flipped upside down.

Enter Alex Zavala, a three-sport athlete who's both incredibly cute and incredibly off-limits. He offers to give Caroline a crash course in all the sports she's missed, and she has an offer for him in return: For every sport Alex teaches her, she'll play matchmaker for him. Deal done, Caroline "dates" new sports with Alex for the rest of the summer, which is loads more fun than wallowing in despair. Just as Caroline starts to see herself as more than her past athletic successes, she picks up something she didn't bargain for: a big fat crush on Alex.

Turns out life was way easier when it was just layout-fulls and beam burns....
