I had a totally different post in mind today — actual Summer Olympics romances recs of books I’ve read — but I was coming up one book short if I didn’t want to recommend two books by the same author. Which I didn’t necessarily. No offense to the author or the books, but when I’m only giving three recs for The Thursday Three, I want to spread the love. My plan for last weekend was to “read all the Olympics books!” so I could find a third book that I was confident in recommending. But, that was before I knew I wouldn’t finish a single book in a week.
So instead, I’m highlighting three books on my own personal Olympics TBR. With the opening ceremony starting tomorrow, I’m in full “YAY OLYMPICS!” mode. I’m hoping I can find my reading focus soon, though there’s also a serious possibility I’ll spend so much time watching the Olympics that I’ll have little time to read romances about them. We’ll see.

Echo by Nana Malone
I love stories about female athletes and this one sounds right up my alley.
