~~ REVIEW ~~
Lance is a great MMA fighter and is climbing the ranks to become one of the best. He can have his pick of any woman he wants and he does so frequently. When he goes to the bar one night and the beautiful, shy girl catches his attention, he knows he has to have her. He feels as though he has met her before, but isn't sure where. When he finds out she is a virgin, he pushes her away and leaves.
Hilary wants Lance just about as much as he wants her, but when he pushes her away she is done. She wants nothing more to do with him. When he tries to apologize, she is in no mood for it. However, he slowly breaks down her walls and she can't help but give him another chance. There's only one problem, she now has a controlling boyfriend. Even with this complication, Hilary and Lance still strive to be together.
When Hilary's boyfriend becomes violent, will she finally escape him? Will Lance help her and keep her safe? Will they ever get their HEA? To find out you will need to read this little gem. I enjoyed this book as it was a quick and easy read. I enjoyed watching both of them grow and become wonderful people. When Lance steps up and takes on a responsibility no one expects him to, he stole my heart. He was such a wonderful person and I couldn't help but root for them to be together.
If you are looking for a sweet, sexy read, this is the book for you. I enjoyed all the characters and I can't wait to see what this author has in store next.
~~ EXCERPT ~~
I’m not the best guy in the world, matter of fact, I’m the guy your mother will warn you to stay away from in the bar because I only want one thing.
And I usually get it.
Things at Joe’s are looking just like they should tonight. The drinks are coming, the music is bumping and the hotties are here, damn it’s going to be a good night. I shouldn’t be here tonight or well any other night but it’s the only way I know to deal and be able to keep my head on straight.
Mom is dying. Unfortunately, Dad and I know this. It’s why I fight. I fight to help pay her medical bills and make sure the house is taken care of. Dad shouldn’t have to carry that weight alone and I refuse to let him. Mom got diagnosed with lung cancer a few years ago and she was a strong fighter from the beginning. The cancer went into remission but its come back progressing with a deadly vengeance. She’s steadily going downhill. She’s refusing to go to the doctor which pisses Dad and I off but we don’t let her see that at all. We don’t force her to go either which is probably wrong on our part but I just don’t want to make anything harder on her than it already is. I can’t imagine my life without Mom in it but here soon I’m afraid I’ll know what it’s like and I’m going to hate it.
Garrett buys a round of shots passing them out to us giving a toast to Raegan. “I’d like to give a toast to my sexy stubborn ass girlfriend. She’s one badass woman and I love her so fucking much.”
Before I throw my shot back I shoot her a grin, “I fucking love her too!” She rolls her eyes at me laughing. If there’s one thing I’m happy about it’s that Garrett found Raegan. They are perfect together even though they are aggravating as hell sometimes.
As much as I want to hang around these two tonight, I can’t help but scan the crowd. My eyes look between a blonde with a pixie style haircut and a brunette who is practically coming out of her shirt standing by the bar. Come to daddy. One quick nod to Raegan and Garrett is all it takes, they know exactly what I am up to and just like that, I stroll over towards the brunette at the bar.
I watch her intently. She notices me and her eyes widen as her cheeks turn a shade of blush. She’s gorgeous. Her hair cascades over her shoulders, the ends meeting where her cleavage begins. I lick my lips as I inch closer to my prey, she knows what’s coming, it’s written all over my face.
