Review of Body Lock by Grace Hugh

Body Lock

Love and Self-Control


Genre: Sports Romance (MMA)

Book Length (Est.): 150 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

MMA fighting sensation Jans “The Dragon” will do anything to protect LeAnne… and their secret baby.

I was a nobody. A nobody with a junkie mom and a sh*t life. I swore I’d never be like her, I was good!

Until bad boy Jans rolled through like a storm, claiming my body with his dominating hands and my heart with his icy blue eyes. My mom finally did something right when she became Vinnie, Jans’ dad’s, arm candy girlfriend.

Then everything went wrong.

I know Jans didn’t mean to do it. He was only trying to protect me.


Her innocence was like an addiction, I was obsessed from the moment I saw her. I couldn’t get enough of her sweet lips and delicious taste.

My Capo father would kill us if he ever found out. He wanted to marry LeAnne off in some bullsh*t Family alliance but I had other plans.

It all fell apart when I f**ked it up. Bad.

Bad like a two year, federal penitentiary sentence bad.

Now I’m out and nothing will stop me from doing what I have to and exposing Vinnie’s treachery to protect LeAnne.

I’m 6’2″ and 220 pounds of hard, fighting muscle. I’ll battle it out in the cage and score our future. All I have to do is beat every opponent the Families send at me, no limit, in one night. Impossible but I’ll come out on top.

*Note: Body Lock is a full length novel, heavy on the steam, with a happy ever after ending and no cliffhangers.*

Jennifer’s Review: 

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

Jans is the oldest son of a mob boss, but all that means is he’s a possession. He fights and his father makes tons of money off him. But he’s not the stupid fighter everyone thinks he is. He’s a sweetheart who’d do anything for the woman he loves.

“She stares at me and I see she’s scared. I don’t ever want to see that look on her face again. No one will ever maker her feel fear again. I’ll make sure of it.”

LeAnne has never had a say in her life, not since her father died. Ever since then she’s basically been luggage her mother’s pulled around through whatever temporary conditions she had. When LeAnne’s mother moves in with Jans’ father she learns what fear is. She’s completely terrified of him and his empty eyes, but with Jans there it’s the only place she’d want to be. He makes everything worth it.

Body Lock has mobsters, underground MMA, and a hidden romance. All of those things sound perfect, which is why I had such high hopes for this book, but nothing really captured my full attention. It starts off in the present, which had me wondering about some of the things mentioned in the synopsis, but then it goes back to the beginning of when LeAnne and Jans met and continues onward from there. The entire time I kept wanting to get back to the present so I could see what happened after what I’d read in the beginning.
