Title: Fighting for Redemption
Series: The Elite: Book Four
Author: USA Today Bestselling Author, Nicole Flockton
Genre: Adult, Sports Romance
Published: May 23, 2017

From USA Today Bestselling Author, Nicole Flockton, the final book in The Elite Series.

Bad Boy Brett Hunter is on a downward spiral after a poor performance at the Rio Olympic Games. His sponsors are threatening to drop him and trouble seems to find him wherever he goes. He’s comfortable with his bad boy image, it’s what he deserves after what he’s done. The last thing he wants to do is change the public’s perception of him, but his agent tells him, change his image or lose his sponsors.

Cassandra Fielder doesn’t like working with diva athletes – she’s been there, done that and has the divorce decree to go with it. When she finds out her new client is Olympian Brett Hunter, for the first time in her career she wants to tell her boss no, unfortunately, saying no isn’t an option. What she isn’t prepared for is the unexpected attraction flaring between them. She has no plans to play on that particular field again. As she spends time with Brett, she begins to see there is more to him than what he shows the public. But why is he trying so hard to hang on to his bad boy image?

Being with Cassandra has Brett facing old foes and a past he is desperately trying to forget. When the truth comes out, a fledging love is put to the test. Can it survive or has trust been irrevocably shattered?

 She saved the best for last.  Bravo,  Ms. Flockton.  When I first met Brett in the first book, I just KNEW that he had a story in him and boy, did he.  Talk about a doozy of a backstory.  I wasn’t prepared for it but I finally understood why Brett is/was the way he is.  I still had a bit of problem with the whole Julia situation because he really was just being a nice guy but it didn’t play out that way in the end.  He still was the bad guy and I hated that for him.  He deserved better.  
What Ms. Flockton crafted was a story about redemption for Brett.  We’ve had the build up throughout the series that he wasn’t a good person, but in the end, we found that he was the BEST person in the series.  He hid behind the persona so that he didn’t have to deal with his past.  And Cass was the perfect woman for him.  She pushed when needed, backed off when needed and in the end, the right partner for Brett.
Cass and Brett were not an easy couple to get together.  I know, it seems easy but in the beginning, the attraction just wasn’t there.  They had to learn to trust each other, like each other and just maybe become friends before they could even think about the lovers’ thing.  Ms. Flockton did an excellent job of not throwing them together in the beginning of the book.  She took her time with them as a couple and I feel it just made them stronger in the end.  Not to say that Cass had started feeling something for him but she stuck to her guns because of her ex-husband.  I got that and I respected her for that.  I also liked that she was a bit older than Brett.  She’d been around the block a time or two, so she was either going all in or nothing.
I’m so sad to see these series end.  I got to see the other couples in the end and I still have it majorly bad for Dane.  Just think Australian Swim Team 2000 in Sydney.  *MAJOR SWOON*  And yes, Ms. Flockton knows this.  🙂
