Katherine Deane has brought along her latest, and wonderful, book Wren’s Redemption. I love this book for soooo many reasons and it deserves all its great reviews!
Thanks so much for having me over today, Jaye! I am very excited about this new book. Wren’s Redemption isn’t only about a gymnast who lost her way, or a coach who will do anything to help her succeed. It’s also about reconnecting, trusting again, finding love, and finally, forgiveness.
Jonathan has beaten himself up for years, after watching Wren’s fall from grace. And now she is adding to the drama with a very difficult dismount. Neither one is prepared for the outcome.
Goddamnit, she was going to try an F dismount. Jonathan released the anxious breath he held as she twirled over the top bar, preparing for the difficult dismount. He could see it in her determined eyes, as if the flash of defiance she had scathed him with right before she started, wasn’t enough. He crept out of her peripheral vision and stood to the side of the bar. He would give her the space she needed. He’d catch her if she fell. And damn it to hell, he was going to blister her ass after the meet was over.
Gripping the top bar firmly, her form was aggressive with each rotation and release. Two more, baby, don’t miss the bar. Tighten your core. Come on. Her final swing forward wasn’t enough to get her the momentum she needed for the difficult dismount. He was going to have to work on her lower body and core strength later. After he paddled her bottom redder than the advertisement for home grown apples hanging loosely in the rafters.
Swinging a little too erratically, she released the bar and flipped backwards.
She was supposed to twist 720 degrees on her axis and keep her legs bent for a full tuck until she landed. But she wasn’t in control as she released. Shit. Her legs untucked and her arms flailed wildly as her body hurtled right toward the judges table and the wide eyed competitors awaiting their turn.
He froze. For two seconds, he couldn’t breathe, he couldn’t move. He could do nothing but stand there, petrified, as the small blur of purple flashed right in front of him.
Nineteen-year-old gymnast Wren Montgomery was America’s golden girl, but then it all came crashing down. As far as the media is concerned, it was a devastating ankle injury which began her downward spiral, but in her heart Wren knows better. The truth is that things started going wrong the day her beloved coach Jonathan Reilly not only rejected her romantic advances, but actually spanked her bare bottom as if she were a silly little girl when she tried to hide her heartbreak behind an angry outburst.
Now at twenty-two, after one poor decision after another Wren has become the “bad girl” of the gymnastics world. Desperate to break out of her slump and with nowhere else to turn, she decides to accept help from the best coach she ever had… the same man who spurned and then spanked her years ago.
Jonathan watched Wren’s fall from grace, and he fell with her. He still blames himself for leaving the team—and more importantly, leaving her—and now that he has the chance to help his little rebel get back on track, he isn’t going to let it slip through his fingers. This time he’ll be there for her no matter what, both when she needs a loving embrace and when she needs a firm hand applied to her bare bottom. Most important of all, if she still wants him to be more than just her coach, this time he won’t let anything keep him from claiming what is his.
