Cover Release:: On Solid Ground KL Grayson

| | |
Today we’re revealing the cover of K.L. Grayson’s On Solid Ground! I am so excited to share this gorgeous new cover with you!
On Solid Ground is a novella in the Touch of Fate series and will be releasing Janurary 5th!


About On Solid Ground: June 5, 2008 I made a mistake of epic proportions. Moving home was an easy choice because I knew that I had to make things right. I had hoped to win back Harley’s friendship, but I never imagined that I’d win her heart … or the heart of her son. Now that I have, I’m never letting them go. They’re my life, the reason I breathe. We’ve worked hard to get where we are, and we’re finally standing on solid ground. Or so I thought … *** Tyson’s ex-fiancĂ© wasn’t supposed to move back to St. Louis … that wasn’t part of the plan. And she sure as hell wasn’t supposed to start working with him. I trust him—at least I think I do—but when secrets are being kept and things start to unravel, I’m left wondering if I made a mistake. I allowed myself to fall in love with the only man to ever break my heart. And now I’m afraid he might break it again … This is a Harley and Tyson Touch of Fate Novella and can be read after book #1 or book #2 but should not be read as a standalone.

About K.L. Grayson:

K.L. Grayson
resides in a small town outside of St. Louis, MO. She is entertained daily by her extraordinary husband, who will forever inspire every good quality she writes in a man. Her entire life rests in the palms of six dirty little hands, and when the day is over and those pint-sized cherubs have been washed and tucked into bed, you can find her typing away furiously on her computer. She has a love for alpha-males, brownies, reading, tattoos, sunglasses, and happy endings…and not particularly in that order.

Read:: The Last Shot by Sara Hubbard

| | |
I am a sucker for Sports Romance. As soon as this baby released November 15th, I was all over it. A hockey player with just a glance of hockey games in the book but it still made me happy. Ethan let the his heart get away when Annie broke up with him when he got his shot at the NHL. This woman is running scared of being left behind and after her childhood you understand why she was so scared. His brother getting hurt and ending up in Annie's care is like fate working for these two. Ethan gives it all he has to prove to Annie that they belong together and he isn't going anywhere. 

Sara's Page

Annie: As a child I was unwanted and unloved. Tossed aside until my maternal grandmother came to claim me. Life got better after that, and it got better still when I met Ethan Michaels, the boy down the street who was determined to make me feel like I mattered. At first he was my friend, but then he became much more. But love isn’t real. Not in my world. 

When Ethan left to pursue professional hockey I had to make a clean break. I couldn’t wait for him to find someone better, couldn’t wait for him to break my heart. It’s better to leave than be left. But now he’s back, and I can't run from him anymore. 

Worse…he won't let me. 

Ethan: Annie Fraser owned me as a kid. She owns me still. When I got my first contract to play professional hockey I asked her to come with me, but she wouldn’t leave Rawdon, not while her grandmother was sick. I understood. Still, I wanted to stay together, do whatever I could to keep her. 

But she wanted to run. 
I loved her enough to let her. 

Now I’m back in town and I’m pissed. I think I hate her. I’m sure of it. Until I see her… and those old feelings come rushing back. I won’t let her walk away again. I don’t care what it takes. 

* The Last Shot is a contemporary, second chance at love novel between a professional hockey player and a nurse. Although sweet with tamer language, it contains sexual situations and adult language.

Read:: Rage by Elizabeth Reyes

29 November 2015

| | |
This book is Number 5 in the Fate Series. I found Elizabeth Reyes with a free book offer on Amazon for Forever Mine, (the Moreno Brothers Series). I read about the family and their cousins and then she began a spin off series "FATE" and I continued. She's one of the authors that when I found her, I went on mailing lists, stalked on facebook and amazon to ensure I was aware when the new books were released. 

In Rage, you will read about a cousin of the family, AJ is a major league baseball player. His temper has gotten the best of him at times but he meets the owner's granddaughter and you see his playful sweet side. This little girl comes with a smoking hot momma that captures AJ's attention. Both mom and daughter being genesis's makes the banter funny and keeps you on your toes. A few mistakes and hidden facts will make the joys of being together tough and trying. I was actually relieved when I got to 94% and all was well. It kept my heart pounding with all the drama and wanting to get to the HEA. 

See All of Elizabeth's Books

Having made it to the major leagues, AJ "Rage" Romero is determined to shake the stigma his temper has earned him over the years. He's finally managed a shaky hold of that elusive self-control.

Until he meets them . . .

Without warning, his coach and mentor's brilliantly gifted granddaughter Clair and her equally amazing mother Addison Lara blow into AJ's life. The harder he falls for Addison, the closer and more attached he becomes to Clair.

Having fallen so fast and hard, he agrees to respect the understandably protective single mother's wish to forever keep the identity of Clair's absent father unknown to everyone--including AJ.

But when the ugly truth about Clair's dad begins to surface, the fire in AJ's fiercely possessive heart is lit. As more of the troubling reality comes to light, his zero tolerance for secrets and dishonesty put his temper--and his love for Addison--to the ultimate test.

Self-control has never felt so impossible.

RAGE is a STANDALONE sexy romance with a alpha male hero that will make you tremble. It has an HEA and NO cliffhanger!! It is suitable for ages 17+

Revisited:: Undeniable Love (Journey Of Love Book 2) by Kelly Elliott

| | |
Following Ms. Elliott, she has been all over her new release that was quickly coming so I decided to re read a favorite of mine before the release. The relationship between Tristan and Ryn is anything but easy for most of the book. Its a relationship that was working until the man's brain started working against him and Tristan bolts. A man scared to tell a woman that his heart is falling for her. So what does that said woman do, what I think was a horrible way to cope but in her mind it was genius. She got herself a play thing and played she did. Tristan has to watch her with Dodge while he is kicking himself for letting her go. Its a struggle, back and forth, these two trying to figure out if they can be trusted with each others hearts.

Tristan Williams thought the path of his life was on the right journey. He had a successful career, good looks, and a carefree lifestyle. One conversation changed Tristan’s way of thinking forever as his father presented him with a bottle, representing his journey and forcing unwanted thoughts of a lasting relationship to the surface. Running from the fear of commitment, he pushed away the only woman he ever had feelings for and turned to the one girl he knew he didn’t love. 

Ryn Webster was finally putting her past behind her. Moving to Texas and concentrating on the success of her own company, she had her life almost where she wanted it. One thing was missing though…love. She thought she had found love with Tristan until he casted her aside. 

After being hurt by Tristan, Ryn does whatever she can to push him from her heart, even if it means being with a man she doesn’t love. 

Regardless of the path one thinks they are on, the journey of life can cause unexpected turns, altering the planned course. Will Tristan and Ryn’s bottle be tossed about, lost in the rocky waves of life? Or will calm seas prevail to help Tristan and Ryn finally find their journey of love…together? 

Revisited:: Breaking up with Barrett by Katy Regnery

28 November 2015

| | |
So this lovely one went on sale with a box set a few weeks ago and after sharing with my Sister In Law that this was a great series and the brothers are a good family to read about, I decided to re read. So I revisited with Barrett and Emily. How a boy at 8 years old fell in love with the gardeners daughter and didn't even realize it until he is over 30 years old. These two pulled at my heart strings, Barrett's cold and shark like heart blooming right in front of me. To read about an all business man suddenly interested in watching the stars. His brothers are within the story and you can see the bond of their relationships with advise and support. I had wanted to go through the whole series however other authors and other series were published so I will return to read Fitz's story later. 

Breaking Up with Barrett is the first of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Except Alex. He's a womanizing manwhore. And maybe Stratton, because he's wicked hot, but super awkward around girls.)

Barrett English, aka "the Shark," is the fair-haired, first-born of the English brothers, and the CEO of the oldest, most prestigious investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He rules the boardroom with an iron fist, refusing to take no for an answer and always getting his way.

Emily Edwards, a first-year doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, grew up in the gatehouse on the outskirts of Barrett's childhood estate. The daughter of his family's gardener and housekeeper, she was always looking through the window of privilege, but forced to remember her place at the very periphery of the kingdom.

When business partners suggest that a fiancee might soften Barrett's image over business dinners, he approaches Emily for the "job" of fiancee. And while love wasn't necessarily on Barrett's radar, he begins to realize that Emily always has been. But will his take-no-prisoners boardroom tactics work on the heart of the woman he loves?

Holy Cow the Releases!!!

Holy Crap, I have been busy reading. Like wake up in the middle of the night wanting to read reading. Its not because of the books, even though the books are great, its because of the wonderful authors. These ladies are putting their hearts in these books and its been one release after another and I have loved it. Thank goodness that this was a short week at work and lots of time to read after the kids went to bed. 

We had a great Thanksgiving with family and was able to visit with my mom and sisters. Having the cousins together is always a blessing. I have lots of cousins, but as we grew older we have grew apart but my sisters and I are tight. Communicating throughout the week and visiting with our parents when we can. 

I am thankful for the husband and family I have. I am able to help put food on the table with my great career at the USCG. I am spending time with the girls watching them grow and learn. 

This week has been good and its slowly coming to an end.

Read:: Seth by Jo Raven

| | |

So after finishing Perfectly Imperfect, I couldn't resist starting Seth even though I have plenty others on the kindle. First of all the cover model, can we say Wow, Jack Wellon nailed it. Second Jo Raven has done it again. I got her first book in the series for free or .99, I couldn't tell you for sure at this point but I got it. I read Asher and was hooked to her writing. These "Damaged Boys" captured a little piece of my book heart and I have followed since, waiting for the next book to come. 

Seth was not a disappointment. These boys, not easy lives, no money, work hard, and cling to family (once they accept help that is). Its never insta love either. Yes, usually one if not both decide that love is there however they work for it. Seth has had a past that most will never see with a mother that is cruel however he is trying to make himself better but there is not amount of luck on his side. He has a literal run in with a girl he has been watching from afar and a friendship is struck up. He and Madeline are cute together, both having these insecurities about the relationship. 

I love that Jo Raven doesn't do  epilogues that show far into the future, even though that can be the best part. Her epilogues show you a few months down the road to set up the next story of these guy men and women. 

Life is a bitch. Keeps screwing me over, and I take blow after blow, sucking it up, giving her the finger. 
Don’t get me wrong: I love women. Especially one woman – Madeline. She’s gorgeous, she’s sexy, she’s goddamn perfect. 
Plus – minor detail – she has a boyfriend already. 
Not that she’d want anything to do with the likes of me. Apprentice tattoo artist, former homeless person, covered in ink, without a penny to my name. 
And sort of cursed. I mean, I’d be lucky to run into a girl, any girl, on my way in and out of hospitals with the way life has been knocking me about lately. 
But I’m not lucky. Never was. Doesn’t look like that’s gonna change any day soon, either. 
Until the day the girl of my dreams literally runs into me. With her car. 
Life hates me, and if this isn’t a clue, then I don’t know what is. 

Standalone novel. No cliffhanger. 
*Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature readers only. Not intended for young readers.* 

SETH is book 3 in the series Damage Control - a series set in the same world as Inked Brotherhood. The boys of Damage Control were taken in by Zane Madden and Rafe Vestri and offered apprenticeship and work in the tattoo shop Damage Control. 
Next in the Damage Control series: SHANE(Damage Control 4).

Read:: Perfectly Imperfect by Harper Sloan

20 November 2015

| | |

Soooo I couldnt wait until the weekend when I would have time to read, yes I started last night and finished today. This book grabbed me, held me, tore me, and put me back together. Willow is kick ass awesome and her strength is something all teenagers, adults, older women or anyone else with image issues should read. This chick rocked it and came back from a great feat. Her family is Horrible with a capital H, I dont even want to act like its not as bad as it was for her. At one point I wanted to slap her supposed sister myself. I have sisters, we are mean to each other at points in our lives conversations happen but we are close, I would and could never imagine treating my blood that way. 

But a chance meeting, and BAM she is starting over and finding her way. This book has a secret that I kinda figured out about 75% or so but I was happy that the secret contained the characters involved that it did and our main characters would get their Happy After Ever. 

Kane is everything you would want in a alpha male however I will say he is NO WHERE near as bad as the men in Corps Security. He is more mellow in his possessiveness but still lets Willow know who she is with. 

I recommend this book and am sticking it in my Corps Security Collection on my kindle so that I can re read when the urge hits. 

If you havent already, one click now.

**Standalone novel**

Mirror, mirror ... who's the fairest of them all?

I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn't grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all 'mean girls.'

And those mean girls were right - it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world - and I knew the answer would never be me.

The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.

The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.

Well, that's definitely not Willow Tate.

No. That will never be me.

Because I'm completely imperfect.

And ... I hate myself.

I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.

Facebook Page Back Up

I had a facebook page for a long time then deleted it when I didnt have time for blogging, now I have the itch again and am loving writing again. So I have started my Facebook page back up with lots of updates, shared book info, posts, opinions.


Black Friday Shopping!?!? Anyone?!

| | |
Do you still do the dreadful Black Friday Shopping? Seriously black friday shopping begins like November 1st now. Companies aren't even waiting until this 'special' day to have the sales. Why do we even call it black friday? It should just be Christmas Sales Special Event. Because it is, its a whole event, a whole month, a whole week, and it continues until Christmas Eve.

Companies are having their employees come in and work on Thanksgiving Day instead of being with their families and being THANKFUL for life here with them in the USA, for our freedom, for our kids, for our parents, for football, for anything they are thankful for. They arent able to enjoy that day that the kids DO NOT have school. No they rush their family time to be in at 6 PM so that the sale for CUSTOMERS that cannot WAIT can be there waiting at the door to get their items.

Seriously how have we become so materialistic??? Why are we fighting and trampling people over a Barbie house instead of home playing go fish with our kids.

I just dont get why the hype of Black Friday when honestly if you watch the sale ads the whole month of November and most of December is great. Most of the best sales are after Black Friday into December. So why are companies having their employees come in on a Holiday just for the sales? When did that bottom dollar become so important.

Read:: Roped In: An Armed & Dangerous Novel by LP Dover

19 November 2015

| | |
The struggles of a few books hitting your kindle at the same time and having to wait to read something you know you need to read. This book is part of her Armed and Dangerous Series that have characters from her "A Gloves Off" Series. You do not need to have read any other book to follow along but really if you are going to read a series you should start at the beginning. Only my opinion.

Roped In followed Blake Evans to his family ranch after leaving North Carolina to run things. He is still doing undercover work and gets assigned a special project to protect the one and only superstar Hadley Rivers. There are a lot of funny parts in the beginning. Blake doesn't make it easy on Hadley at all assuming she is a spoiled stuck up Queen used to getting her way. The best part is that she proves him wrong time and time again able to help him with the ranch and soon a case that he is assigned on involving Hadley herself.

The two bat off of each other well and the dialogue is great, not a lot of unnecessary details and keeps you on your toes. I would have never suspected who and what happened to Hadley. LP definitely keeps you waiting for all the answers and you will not be disappointed.

**STANDALONE NOVEL** Who says a wild heart can’t be tamed? For years, I lived for the job and let it control me. Violence was all I knew. I protected, killed, and served. My name is Blake Evans, one of the best undercover cops in the country. I thought I was about to live a quiet life on my ranch in Wyoming until an old friend showed up and changed everything. He brought me her, Hadley Rivers, country music sensation and the one woman I couldn't have. I didn't want her but she had me completely roped in. My job is to protect her, to keep her away from some psycho who wants her for himself. However, there's more to her story than I was led to believe. I promised to keep her safe and I won't back down . . . even if I have to die trying. I can't let him have her.

Relased: Perfectly Imperfect by Harper Sloan

18 November 2015

Have you checked your Kindle?? Why yes, Perfectly Imperfect should have hit it yesterday at Midnight. Mine is patiently waiting on me. I am patiently waiting on the weekend because of work, kids, other things going on and family time. Sooooooo come on weekend to give me some time to read because I need to have it consumed. Anything Harper Sloan writes is right down my alley, her writing style, blunt way of putting things, her alphas.

This story is to be personal for her, a struggle, a way of finding herself. I for one am excited to get my read on and see how perfect this read is.

If you haven't one clicked yet, get to it people!

Cover Reveal:: The Baller Vi Keeland

| | |
This was released today, the book should be out mid January and you can reorder on iBooksor add to TBR on Goodreads!! I love this author's style of writing and the synoposis already has it on my radar of a great new read. And of course its about sports so all of the interests for me are there.  Happy reading!! 

Favorite Author? Go To when in a slump??

15 November 2015

| | |
So do you have an author that even though you have hundreds of books on your device or on your bookshelf, that you can re read over and over again?

The first author for me is Tammy Faulkner, she writes about these adorable blonde haired tatted filled guys named the Reed Brothers. I am on a mailing list to receive deals and steals for books, one day her book Tall, Tatted, and Tempting was on the list for FREE. This book took me through the relationship of Logan and Emily. Cliffhanger and I had to have the 2nd book and am now waiting for 16th book in this series. We have watched the family grow, friendships made, and more babies than you can count. 

The second author is Aurora Rose Reynolds, she introduced me to the Mayson Brothers and cousins. Again, that mailing list came in handy and gave me the boxset of the Mayson Brothers, Until Series, for ONLY .99. Four wonderful, couldnt put down books for only .99. After these books were complete, I followed her on every social media I could find to keep up with her new releases. Her writing and way of telling stories keeps you interested, the way that all 4 books blend with each other is amazing, in book 2 you get Trevors point of view of the conversation with Cash, in book 3 you get the complete background of that conversation and Cash's point of view. All 4 brothers find their BOOM. Now she has graced us with stories of all these babies these men help make. 

The third author is Sawyer Bennett, she has a few series that I have read and waiting on the next. I can re read her books over and over. The Last Call Series has kept me coming back and of course The Cold Fury Series

Last but not least Harper Sloan, her books are jam packed with emotion and alpha men. Her books are not insta love, these characters work for it and work hard with lots of crap in the middle but at the end you are thrilled it all worked out. I read Cooper because it was FREE and then released there was a whole series and I just read book 5 and had no clue what happened to make this book happen, so after finishing Cooper, I purchased the boxset and met the Corps Security guys. 

I am sure that you have read or heard of all of these authors but to me these are the ones that really got my love of reading back. They are my core authors, those ones that I will stop reading what I am reading because they hit 'publish' on Amazon and their new book is released. They are wonderful people and they are great writers. Visit them give them some love and read their stories. 

What device is used?

14 November 2015

| | |
I am just curious, I am a kindle and amazon girl. My wonderful husband bought me a kindle for our anniversary as soon as they were on sale and I was hooked. Before this kindle thing was invented and distributed to the public, I had a very hard time reading. I love real books, grew up reading and have devoured books for my entire life however with little ones, work, and giving your husband some attention, not a lot of time. My husband may regret this little gift since now I am reading a lot, I get consumed with the book and must finish. 

I am loving being able to ignore the world at bedtime and read. I love my kindle, recently updating to the Fire Tablet and also using the app on my phone.  

So what is your favorite device to read on? Do you think one is better than the other? Do you recommend to others? 

Buying a Book Based on Cover

| | |
So YES I bought this book fully on the only fact that cover model Josh McCann's beautiful eyes were right in front of me. I have discussed this in a group with other readers and it seems perfectly normal in our world. We follow these cover models and they allow us in a tenth of their world. It feels like you know them a little, nice hot looking guys that are gracing our covers. I was not familiar with this author, have never read a book by Ryan Michele but kept my eyes open. 

I actually enjoyed this book and YES I was surprised. It is not my usual book, the few other mafia driven books that I had tried to read didnt hold my interest and I ended up stopping around 40%. The whole killing, plotting murder, getting someone because of something they did towards the family, not my cup of tea. However, this author had me and I will read other books by this author.

So if you love mafia, or just want the book because of Mr. McCann's beautiful eyes or want to give an author a try by it here: Blood and Loyalties: A Mafia Romance

Family meant everything. Good, bad, right, wrong, legal, illegal—none of that mattered when it came to family. Family was and always would be number one. Catarina Lambardoni stayed on the legal side of the family businesses by running Lambardoni Enterprises. Professionally, she was beyond successful. In her personal life, however, she was not, having just walked in on her boyfriend cheating on her. Jag Maratelli, the boss’s right hand, worked extremely hard to sustain his position in the family and honored it with his life. When he was summoned to the East Coast for an unexpected meeting, a chance encounter with Catarina and one look into the fire within her made him a very determined man. The chemistry between the two scorched hot, and Jag had been with enough women to know Catarina was something special, something he couldn’t allow himself to walk away from. Life had other ideas, though, when a betrayal in the family sent him two thousand miles away from her while danger lurked closer than anyone realized. Would their connection be strong enough for both of them to pursue more? Or would people and events from the past and present make that choice for them?

Zack by Sawyer Bennett

| | |
A recent re read on my part, wanting to read about Zack, my favorite in "The Cold Fury" Series, however I am not one to pick up a book in the middle of the series, I like to read the entire series. So I began with Alex and made my way through the series. Zack's story pulls at my heart strings. It is a such an emotional story with his family life changing quickly. Thank goodness for a strong female lead that yes has her insecurities but also is woman enough to bring him back from the dead to allow him to enjoy special moments he might have missed without her. Kate does an excellent job of taking care of Zack's child and also his heart with some goofy songs and tough love. If you love sports romance this may be the series for you. 

Rising star Zack Grantham has been stuck in a downward spiral of grief that has put his career on hold. Back on the road with the Carolina Cold Fury, still crippled by emotional baggage, and now a single dad, he’s in need of some serious help with his son. But while the nerdy new nanny wins his son’s heart, Zack isn’t sure he’s ready for a woman’s touch—even after getting a glimpse of the killer curves she’s hiding under those baggy clothes.
Kate Francis usually keeps men like Zack at a distance. Though his athlete’s body is honed to perfection, he refuses to move on with his life—and besides, he’s her boss. Still, the sparks between them are undeniable, tempting Kate to turn their professional relationship into a personal one.

Have you read anything by Tess Oliver??? If you haven't you are missing out, I have read most if not all of her books and they keep getting better. Her stories grab you and suck you in until you get to the end. Her series The Stone Brothers had me feeling like I know them and this series is heating up with the same thing. And of course, it has the sports tie in, so yes!

Coming December 3rd!!!

Third Base by Heidi McLaughlin

Released November 2, I have already swallowed this one up and am patiently waiting on the next on in "The Boys of Summer Series". This one had a twist that I kinda saw coming but the emotion behind it made me forget that I suspected anything. Ethan and Daisy melted my heart. The way that the author only had Ethan's point of view was surprising, I was expecting dual as most authors are doing these days, but we knew every dirty though Ethan had. 

**Standalone Novel** 

Ethan Davenport is already Boston’s most eligible bachelor. In his second season with the Boston Renegades he has set his eyes on the girl behind the visitors’ dugout. 

That girl is Daisy Robinson, a journalism student at the University of Boston and a die-hard Renegades fan. 

But with new found love comes challenges and Ethan and Daisy have to deal with his crazy schedule, school finals and his presence on her campus for some much needed media training. 
For Ethan nothing can come between him and Daisy, until a secret that she’s been keeping threatens to destroy them both.

Everything was fine until that innocent little rich girl walked into my garage. Since the second I laid my eyes on her, all I've wanted to do is get my dirty hands on her pure body. 

There's one minor obstacle standing in my way, but I've got a plan. All I've got to do is claim her, and she’ll be mine forever. 

Warning: This book is over-the-top, insta-love. There's nothing but steamy scenes, babies trying to be made, and an obsessed bearded alpha hero claiming a virgin who will be his forever. If you want it hot and dirty, this is it! 

*whispers* There's a sweet smutty surprise at the end! 

This book was everything I thought it would be: dirty, fast, instalove, lots of drama and a happy ending. I originally wasn't going to purchase due to the fact that  I have lots of books on my kindle and i would read it another time, however there were lots of sharing and great reviews.

It finally got to me and I had to read about Paine and Penelope. You talk about a quick man, he took her and owned her before the end of the 3rd chapter. The author Alexa Riley did a great job telling a story completely in a short amount of book. Its not very long and there aren't deep details, she doesn't drone on about details you don't really need to know anyways. Its a fun sexy read.

Re-read Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland

| | |
FYI, I do a lot of re reading, I buy and borrow a lot of books I have hundreds on the kindle, but I always go back to my favorites. I have my collections section full of my favorite authors and some of the best books. This Veterans Day, I spent re-reading this MMC Fighter Series, I love sports related books. I grew up loving sports, so putting a man in that I have always been interested in, in a book is right up my alley. If you are into sports men being the lead then this might be a good series for you as it follows the Lead, Nico in all three books. He is only the lead in this first book, but he is in a supporting role and we get to follow his relationship through the 3rd book. 

Vi Keeland is very talented and grabs you in the first chapter until the end. The epilogues are always interesting and gives you a little bit of closure with her characters. 

It didn't matter that the ref called it a clean hit. Nico Hunter would never be the same.

Elle has a good life. A job she loves, a great apartment, and the guy she's been dating for more than two years is a catch and a half. But it's boring...and she strives to keep it that way. Too many emotions are dangerous. Her own past is living proof of what can happen when you lose control.

Then Nico walks into Elle's office and everything changes...for both of them. But what can the tattooed, hard-bodied MMA fighter and the beautiful and always steady attorney have in common? A lot more than they bargained for.

***Author's note*** THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
