Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review*

Zane “Tracker” Colter is the VP of the Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club. All muscle, tattoos and the confidence of an alpha male drives the women wild. Walking away from the love of his life when he was just a teenager has left him wounded and unlovable.

Evie has loved Zane since she was a child. The night that they were caught together by her father changed everything. Zane left town and Evie had no choice but to move on with her life. Having a child to look after made it all worth the while. Especially when he is a spitting image of his father.

Zane, Evie and Jagger grew up together in a small town. As time went on Evie thought she would never see them again. When the Sinner’s go looking for revenge they walk straight back into Evie’s life. Zane is shaken to the core when he learns just how strong, confident and beautiful Evie has become.  He will stop at nothing to get his girl back even if that means intensifying the rival between his club and the Black Jacks.

Oh how I love this series. This is the third book in the Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club series. This book has it all. Revenge, passion, love and loyalty. The characters are intense and strong. Once you start reading you cannot pull yourself away. Definitely a page turner.

If you are on the lookout to read about some intense bikers, hot a hell love and a lot of loyalty this is the series for you. You will not be disappointed.

I cannot wait to get my hands on the next one!

My Favorite Character: I absolutely fell in love with Ty. He is so smart and already has the ability to pull on the heart strings. But my favorite thing about him is the swear jar. Yes, they will be rich in no time!

Sparky’s shop shook with the hard beat of metal music, the thud of the bass carrying up the stairs where Evie had just put Ty to bed before changing for the party. She had only one fancy outfit in her suitcase, a Scandinavian-style black dress in a crepe fabric with unique cut-outs on the sides and front, and a wide bandeau strip across her breasts. Not really her style, but Connie had convinced her to buy it one Saturday afternoon by feigning a collapse in the store dressing room when she tried it on.

Zane met her in the hallway at the foot of the stairs. He’d been out all day at the clubhouse dealing with the situation with T-Rex, and her gaze skittered from the tips of his heavy dust-covered biker boots, to his low riding jeans, snug in all the right places, and then over his muscle-hugging T-shirt to his tanned, frowning face. Memories of what they’d done last night sent a wave of heat through her body and her cheeks flushed.

“You’re showing a lot of skin.” His frown became a scowl as his gaze swept over her body. “Do you know what it does to a man when he gets a glimpse of something he’s not supposed to see?”

“Does that mean you like it?”

Zane splayed his hand under the back panel of the dress, his fingers skimming the edge of her panties as he pulled her against him. “It means I only got two hands, and there’s a lot of brothers who won’t be able to take their eyes off you since you’re showing more skin than dress.” He pulled his hand from beneath her dress, and slapped her ass. “Go change.”

Evie cried out in surprise. The slap was more of a sting than true pain, but the responding throb in her sex shocked her, made her wonder what would happen if he slapped her again. But the sudden thrill quickly turned to indignation.

“Seriously?” Evie glared at him, her mouth agape. “You’re ordering me to go and change my clothes? I’ve seen some of the clothes the old ladies are wearing. I look like a nun compared to them.”

“You got a habit upstairs, I’ll be a happy man.”

“I’m not changing, Zane.” She leaned against the wall, folded her arms over her chest. “Even if we were together, which we’re not, I wouldn’t let you tell me what to wear. I went through that with Mark. He was insecure right from the start because he never felt he could measure up to you and Jagger. When he lost his job, he started drinking again and that just made it worse. And when we had to rely on my income, he couldn’t deal with it. He started following me around, trying to cut me off from my friends, checking my phone, showing up at work. He threw out some of my clothes, called me a slut . . .”

“Jesus Christ. Once we get T-Rex, I’m fucking going after him.” He leaned one elbow beside her and traced the cut out on the left side of her dress with his free hand, his finger warm against her skin. “What if I ask real nice?”

Evie bit back a smile at his sudden change in demeanor. “Jagger saw my dress. He didn’t have a problem.”

“Because you aren’t his.” He slid his hand beneath the front panel of her dress, his finger dipping down to her mound, sending a sizzle of erotic sensation straight to her core. “You’re mine.”

Flustered by his possessiveness given that she’d pretty much booted him out of her room last night, she had no idea what to say. And when he pulled her in close and lowered his face until their noses were almost touching, she wanted nothing more than to run her tongue over his lips and forget about speech all together.

“You showing something that belongs to me, makes it my problem,” he murmured.

“I don’t belong to you, Zane.”

“Last night.” He feathered kisses along her throat, following her jugular to the hollow at the base of her throat. “Says you do.” His hands slid down to her ass and his fingers dug into her cheeks. “Way I feel now, thinking of the brothers lookin’ at you, touching you, and you showing off what you shared with me last night, says you do.”

Desire pulsed through her, a deep throb that intensified with every second. “It was just sex.”

“You and me, sweetheart . . . it’s never just anything.”

Review of The Outcasts: City in Ruins by K.C. Gray

The Outcasts

A New Look Into Gargoyles 


Genre: YA, Fantasy, Romance

Book Length (Est.): 226 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

When fifteen-year-old Sophia Goodman meets Billy Carter and touches his hand, her very essence hums with pleasure. Sophia is so addicted to his touch she ignores Billy’s strange behavior. It’s obvious he’s hiding something, but by the time she realizes Billy isn’t as he seems, she finds herself thrust into a world filled with magic and mythological creatures.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

K.C. Gray paints a new picture for gargoyles and their evolution. Their history, evolution, prophecies, rules – it all paints a picture unlike one I’ve read before.

Sophia isn’t quite sure what she’s looking for, but when she feels the unexplainable pull toward a mysterious boy she wants to question it, but by the time she does it’s entirely too late. She followed a feeling, one that she can no longer feel, and finds herself basically a prisoner of a world she never knew existed.

“I thought about his transformation again and again. Despite attempts to stop, the scene seemed etched in my eyelids; body stretching, skin deepening to an inhuman color, and wings…fuck, he had wings!”

Billy told her he was a recruiter, he just didn’t elaborate. He was there to do a job, one that didn’t entirely lead to her, but he was addicted to her touch and couldn’t leave her. He had to have her, bring her with him, even if it wasn’t her time.

In The Outcasts: City in Ruins rules get broken, worlds begin to collide, and in the end a life is given in the name of protection.

When I first began reading I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but as I got further and further into the story I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. Truth be told…I still can’t. The ending  definitely left me wanting more. For anyone who’s super strict with their genres, as a mom I feel I should say that the book is labeled YA and although there’s an occasional cuss word and insinuations of sex I believe it still falls into the YA category. It doesn’t cross any lines and I’d definitely let my 13 year-old read it.

My Favorite Moment: I have to admit I really enjoyed when Sophia punched a ‘precious unicorn’. He deserved it!

Blog Tour: Review of Heir to the Pack (The Cursed Pack #1) by Laura Welling

Heir to the Pack

Sexy & Suspenseful 


Genre: Paranormal Romance (Werewolves), Suspense

Book Length (Est.): 280 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis: 

Three years ago, Annie had a three-day fling in Cancun with a handsome stranger, Dash. Two years ago, she gave birth to his son. Now, Annie’s son is fading away with a mysterious illness, and she must seek help from his father, who doesn’t know he exists. But Dash has news for her: first, he’s a werewolf; second, he’s about to be crowned their king; and third, their son has been touched by an ancient curse.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review*

Annie is epitome of control. She’s scared of her son dying, she’s scared of the new world she finds herself in, and she’s scared the man she loves will never love her back, but she never shows it. She walks with her head held high and never shows one ounce of anything but strength. There’s only one person who can see the stress behind her beautiful eyes.

“Annie,” he greeted her, when she entered. “And this must be-” Total silence fell. She absorbed his stunned expression, followed by frantic calculation.

Dash never expected who’d be standing on the other side of his door. He never expected to find out he was a father, and even though he has his reasons for doubting the paternity the resemblance is too much to contest. Everyone else sees it too and some even try to use it against him.

“Dash didn’t know what she was thinking, but he had a fair idea he was in pretty big trouble. Kidnappers and assassins he could fight off, but the thin woman with the waffle scent and the laser eyes scared the crap out of him.”

She went to him hoping for answers to her son’s illness, but found herself being the target of a few crazy werewolves and a curse that she had to somehow end.

Heir to the Pack has it all…car chases, murders, curses, crazy twists, sexy werewolves, and one cute little kid. I found myself captivated by the story and unable to put it down. Either I was hoping for something to happen between Annie and Dash because oh how the tension was tangible, or waiting for the next attack so that I could figure out who the bad guy really was. The twists are great and I loved the ending.

I really hope the next book is about Gaelan. He’s great and his aversion to finding a mate and settling down just makes me want to see it happen even more.

My Favorite Heartfelt Moment: When a little boy tries to wake his father. He does the unexpected and shows his greatness.

Blog Tour: Review of All I Need Is You (Loving You #2) by Wendy S. Marcus

All I Need Is You

Naughty Pen Pals = Love 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Military Romance

Book Length (Est.): 249 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

As a dancer who creates mesmerizing visions onstage, Neve James is looking for the same kind of stability in her love life. Her pen pal, Rory McRoy, is on leave from deployment in Afghanistan, so she heads to Boston to surprise him. After corresponding for months as part of a “Support Our Troops” initiative—and exchanging dozens of “Read When You’re Alone” letters—Neve knows what Rory likes, and she intends to fulfill his every fantasy. But all they get are a few blissful moments together before they’re interrupted by a woman claiming to be Rory’s fiancée.

Rory has fallen hard for Neve’s letters. When he finally meets her in person, he has to have her, right then and there—until Neve takes off in a fit of anger. Forced to return to Afghanistan before he can fix things between them, Rory waits four agonizing months to prove that he’s not the man Neve thinks he is. But by the time he arrives in New York, she’s already made up her mind. Luckily, Rory never backs down from a challenge, and he’s prepared to put everything on the line for love.

Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review*

Neve James is a dancer that has dreams of becoming the next big thing. Trying to become a better person she starts to make some changes in her life.  In her down time she is a pen pal for “Support Our Troops”. Enjoying the conversations that she has with her pen pal things start to get a little more intense when she surprises him when he is home on leave. Under the miscommunication she thinks that Rory is engaged and decides to leave him in her past.

Rory McRoy fell hard for Neve during his deployment. The “read when you are alone” letters got him through some tough times. Having her surprise him was a wish come true. When things turn south for him and Neve runs away he will stop at nothing to explain the situation and get her back.

Neve gets really sick from trying to help her little brother, so sick that it puts her entire life on hold. Rory wants to stay and help as much as he can. With Neve not really having any other help she has no choice but to accept the help. The more time they spend together the more they realize all they really need is each other.

This is the second book in the Loving You series. All I Need Is You can actually be read as a stand alone. The book started off really strong and I loved the letters back and forth to each other. As the story went on I felt myself losing interest but then something would come along and drag me back into the story. I didn’t really feel the instant chemistry between the characters. Rory sometimes didn’t sympathize with Neve when he should have. Now that I finished the book I understand that they needed to go through the difficult times with each other to get to where they wanted to be.

My Favorite Moment: I have to say that my favorite moment is when Neve showed up in Boston to surprise Rory. The storeroom will never be the same.

Today, like yesterday, and the day before that, Neve Jaimes thought dying would be easier than living. Mostly because she didn’t do sick very well.

“Damn this flu.” Damn feeling so weak and dizzy every time she tried to sit up. But she’d done it, had even managed to remain upright long enough to put on her bathrobe. Now, for the next challenge, she slid her bare feet into the slippers beside her bed, used her arms to push off, and stood with the ease of a severely arthritic 109-year-old. Everything hurt. Ten miserable days with no end in sight. “Enough already.” She needed to get well. Needed soup, which was why she’d forced herself out of bed.

With Mom and Dad away and her best friend, Brooke, now living hours from New York, there’d be no homemade chicken soup deliciousness in her immediate future.

Takeout from the deli down the street would have to do.

In the kitchen Neve steadied herself against the counter long enough to pick out a spoon, then plopped into a chair, exhausted from expending the minuscule amount of energy required to travel a few dozen feet, thankful her one-bedroom condo was small and all on one level.

When someone knocked at the door she opened her eyes and lifted her head from where it rested on her folded arms on top of the table, but made no move toward the door, partly because she felt too dizzy to stand right at that moment, but mostly because her brother, Nate, the bringer of the soup, had a key.

She met the second, louder knock with a groan. Honestly, what the hell was the purpose of giving your overprotective big brother a key to your condo—which he had annoyed and harassed you for until you begrudgingly gave it to him—if he didn’t use that key for emergencies? Which this was, on account of Neve not being able to remember the last time anything other than ginger ale or warm tea had passed her lips. With her body completely depleted of nutrients, she needed sustenance to fight off the virus running rampant through her system.

Once the dizziness faded, Neve stood. “Pain in my ass.” And everywhere else, for that matter. Hunched over and clutching her old purple robe closed in front of her, she shuffled to the door and opened it. The whoosh of refreshingly cold November air felt good on her fevered skin. But the bright midday sun shot like spears into both eyes, blinding her. “Jeez.” She slapped a hand over her face, a little harder than intended, sending a throb of pain through her skull. “Owwwww. Did you bring the ibuprofen?

” “Neve?”

Shit. That didn’t sound like Nate. Positioning her hand like a visor, she squinted at her unwanted visitor, to find five feet, seven inches of sexy, way too good-looking male dressed in tan boots and matching light green camouflage pants, jacket, and bucket hat. Well, triple shit. It’d been four months since she’d met him in person for the first and only time, when she’d learned he wasn’t the good guy she’d thought him to be during their eight months as pen pals. This man who she’d confided in, who knew more about her life than her best friend and her brother, turned out to be a liar, and she wanted nothing to do with him.

“Go away, Rory.” She turned and reached out to slam the door in his face. In one quick motion, he stopped it. Most people would consider Rory average height for a guy, but he was much taller than Neve, who stood a tiny bit over five feet. And with his big, defined muscles, he had her beat in the strength department, too.

“What’s wrong, Neve? You look like crap.”

Probably smelled like crap, too, since she hadn’t bathed or changed her pajamas in . . . too many days. And you know what? She could care less. “Why, thank you for those kind words, you sweet-talker. You really know how to make a girl feel beautiful.” She tugged at the door again. It didn’t budge. “Now move your hand. I don’t have the strength to fight with you today.”

“Even if you did, I’d be ready for you this time.”

She did not appreciate the amusement in his voice. A few months ago she’d taken him, a U.S. Army soldier, down to the ground and incapacitated him, with surprisingly little effort, and they both knew it. “You promised not to come looking for me if I didn’t want to be found. If I recall correctly, you wrote, ‘But I swear on the life of Father McGinty, my priest back home, that when I’m stateside I’m not the man I need to be when I’m here, that I would never hurt you, or come looking for you if you didn’t want to be found.’”

Shifting so the sun wasn’t shining directly into her eyes, she gave him her very best glare. “And well, whaddya know? You did hurt me”—not physically and she’d never willingly admit how much—“and here you are. Again! There’s a reason I used a PO box, a reason I never gave you my home address. Because I didn’t want to be found! Maybe next time you should think twice before swearing on the life of your priest, because you, Rory McRoy, are a damn liar.”

That mini-tirade zapped what little strength Neve had, and she fell back against the door, trying to catch her breath, praying her legs would hold her up for a few more minutes.

He stepped toward her. Too close. “Let me—”

“No.” Neve tried to yank her arm out of his hold, her weakened state making the attempt totally ineffective, embarrassing even.

A deep, familiar, very welcome voice bellowed, “Get your hand off of my sister.”

Thank goodness. Help had arrived in the form of her six-foot-tall, big and strong police officer brother, in full uniform—which meant he had his gun. “Shoot him.” Of course he wouldn’t, but saying it felt good.

Cool, calm, and collected, Rory remained on track. “We need to talk, Neve.”

“No, we don’t.” This time when she pulled away he let her.

“Are you pregnant?” Rory asked, loud enough for Nate to hear.


Nate yelled, “Why the hell does he think you’re pregnant?” as he came within arm’s reach of Rory. Close enough to strangle him, which might just come in handy.

Review of Her Fiery Viking (Her Elemental Viking #1) by A.J. Tipton

Her Fiery Viking

Simply Combustible 


Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Length (Est.): 67 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Mikkel just might be too hot to handle. He’s an ancient Viking, cursed with immortality and the compulsion to burst into an uncontrollable ball of fire when enraged. After centuries of tragedy, Mikkel fears the fury within him and the danger he poses to anyone he lets too close.

But when Joanna, a smart, sexy engineer angry at the world, explodes into his life, Mikkel can’t resist her smoldering allure. Has the time finally come to let someone in and embrace the fire? Or will their fiery passion scorch these lovers?

This mature romance includes incendiary bar room shenanigans, harrowing kidnapping, high speed car escapades, and a love strong enough to heal even the most damaged of hearts.

NOTE – Each book in the “Her Elemental Viking” series stands on its own and can be read in any order.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

It’s strange how someone who knows anger so well can be the one who helps you find your peace. I never would have thought a bad temper would lead you to your soulmate, but in this case Mikkel and Joanna are make for each other.

Joanna started losing her temper after her sister died and she realized how inept the human population truly is. After that, even the simplest of things pushed her over the edge.

“I am grateful for my hobbies. She stopped, amended. My hobby. Which consists of sitting in a bar drinking my liver to death so I don’t go after the world with a tire iron.”

Mikkel was cursed by  a witch and when he loses his temper he literally explodes with rage. After so many years he still can’t control it as well as he’d like, though he sure does try.

“Mikkel had tried to keep his temper all day. Having to work with a killer hangover was one thing, being mocked by a worm was another, but being rejected by the woman he wanted more than anyone in centuries…it was more than he could handle.”

The attraction between Mikkel and Joanna is crazy instant, and the things that she thinks are so contradictory to her words that it’s kind of funny. But despite her words she can’t resist a Viking. And no matter how many women he’s had, no one will drive him as crazy or make him as needy as her.

Her Fiery Viking has sex, humor, a crazy lunatic, and a very useful stun gun. It could have easily been made into a much longer book, but if you’re looking for a mouthy chick, a sexy Viking, backroom-can’t-make-it-home sex mixed with kidnapping and a creepy man with homicidal tendencies then this is the perfect quick read.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: When Joanna realized how old Mikkel is her mind just rambles in attempt to comprehend and it’s hilarious.

“… There wouldn’t even be tomatoes in Europe until he was two hundred years old! He couldn’t have eaten pizza until he was a thousand!”

Review of Moment of Weakness (Embracing Moments #1) by Katie Fox

Embracing Moments

Crazy Twist!


Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Length (Est.): 366 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Twenty-year-old Julia Parker has the ideal life. She comes from a wealthy family, has the perfect boyfriend, and plans to spend the summer in Europe. However, nothing is ever what it seems. It has been thirteen years since her mother’s unexpected death, and the pain she still feels is something she keeps hidden beneath the surface.

But for the second time in her life, everything’s about to change.

After discovering her roommate and boyfriend having an affair, she’s forced to spend the summer at home. Only, she won’t be alone. Recent events have caused an increase in security, and her personal detail is nothing like she expected.

At twenty-five, Roman Hayes is one of the youngest in his field. His only focus is his assignment. But when a moment of weakness between him and Julia lead to several more, they are both left to question what is happening between them. Julia soon learns Roman may just hold the answers to the questions she’s spent her entire life asking. But when all is revealed, will she be able to handle the truth? More importantly, can she find it in her heart to still love the one person she thought she knew?

***This novel contains adult/mature young adult situations. It is only suitable for ages 18+ due to language, violence, and sexual situations.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Julia’s summer didn’t go as planned. Instead of finding herself on vacation she found herself back home with her father and a private body guard. She wasn’t new to having security around, but she was new to having one so hot he caused her mouth to dry up and her speech to evaporate.

“I couldn’t just write off what we had because every moment spent with him was a moment that brought me back to life.”

Roman was focused on his job, that is until everything got shuffled around and his priorities changed. Protecting Julia may not have been in his plan, but she became his sole mission. Her vulnerability, her wit, her beauty, everything about her drew him in and he was a goner the moment he laid eyes on her.

“I want to know what goes through your mind when you look at me-like the way you’re looking at me right now.”

It’s not often a book can surprise me, because for the most part it’s easy to see who the bad guy is even from the beginning, but this has one hell of a twist that completely caught me off guard. I’m pretty sure my mouth dropped to the floor.

Moment of Weakness is a mixture of sweetness and suspense. It’s kind of an odd combination, but for Julia and Roman it works. The storyline is good, the characters are interesting, and the only thing I didn’t really care for is the writing style itself. The paragraphs are very long and often randomly switch subjects in the middle of them. It felt a little disorienting at times.

My Favorite Moment: After all the events play out it’s a father’s love for his daughter and the simple words he bestows upon his daughter that mean the most.

Review of Breaking a Legend (Kavanagh Legends #1) by Sarah Robinson

Breaking a Legend

Both Need A Little Saving


Genre: Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance (MMA)

Book Length (Est.): 254 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

As one of the big names at his family’s gym, Legends, MMA star Rory Kavanagh is used to being in the spotlight—until a gruesome leg injury knocks him out of the cage. Rory is left feeling sidelined in more ways than one, battling the inner demons that come with losing the one shot at his dreams. Then Clare walks into his life and gives him a new dream: winning her heart. There aren’t many new faces in Woodlawn these days, but this tough, beautiful stranger makes Rory want to get his life back into fighting shape.

Clare Ivers doesn’t think she’ll be able to tell anyone what really brought her to the close-knit Bronx neighborhood where she just started bartending. But her life’s on pause and her past is catching up fast, try as she might to move on—with new friends, steady work, and a chiseled alpha male trying to get her attention. Even though Rory’s more than a little intense, she can’t deny that her heart beats faster when he looks at her with those soulful silver eyes. Clare thought she was done with love, but Rory might just be man enough to show her she thought wrong.


YAY – Double Review!


Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Clare is running from a crazy ex. All she wants is to go to vet school and live her life without being in constant fear of when her ex may show up seeking to destroy her. She’s been careful, she’s made rules for herself, and everything was working okay until Rory Kavanagh walks into her life.

Rory was a MMA fighter who got injured, and yes he is also many other things, but to him being the man in the ring was all he knew himself as and that man was no more. He tried to drown out the pain from his injury and the pain of not knowing who he was anymore in alcohol, drugs, and women. It was a system he thought was working, until he met Clare Ivers.

Clare made Rory want to be a better person, she never asked him to change, but he changed to better himself for her. He wanted to be a man who deserved a woman like her. She, on the other hand, didn’t feel worthy of him and always wanted to know how he could want to be with someone like her.

Two broken people who become whole because of the love they have for each other.

Breaking A Legend is a sweet story of redemption, family, and finding yourself worthy of love. It does start a little slow, and the ongoing comparisons began to get old, but overall it will tug at your heartstrings and leave you with a smile.

My Favorite Moment: I’m not quite sure if my favorite part was the first date Rory set up for Clare or the next morning when they got woken up. Sweet to hilarious in a few page turns. Loved it!

Jenn 3.5 Heart


Mindy’s Review: 

*I received this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*

Rory Kavanagh is a legend MMA fighter, a dominating alpha that can command a room with his presence. His last fight gets him a painful leg injury that takes him out of the cage forever. To dull his pain and feelings he turns to pills and booze. Having all his dreams shattered in the blink of an eye destroys him. Although he has a loving family with plenty of brothers it is hard to get back into a life without his career.

Clare Ivers is new to town. Running from her past and abusive ex-boyfriend she will stop at nothing to have a normal life. While not wanting her secret to get out about her past she starts taking self defense classes at the gym. Becoming friends with the Kavanagh family and volunteering at the shelter brings a little comfort to her new found life.

Rory is instantly attracted to Clare. Her no nonsense attitude makes Rory see that he just might be able to live a normal life after MMA. As the two get closer the chemistry gets more intense, and the secrets start to surface. One thing about it, once you become close to a Kavanagh you become family to them all. And they will stop at nothing to make sure you are safe.

This was a good read. I enjoyed the storyline and you can’t help but to fall in love with the characters. Coming from a tight family you sense a protectiveness that you can understand. When it comes to her ex-boyfriend I felt the build up would cause more of an intense scene but did not really get that. Overall it was a good read and I cant wait until Casey gets her story.

My Favorite  Moment: I loved how Rory explained the feeling of falling in love. Priceless!

My Favorite Moment: I agree that date night in the ring was awesome but it is a tie with the morning after.
