On the Flap
They say men like a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. I never knew the sentiment was reciprocal. Until I met Jax Knight. A gentleman in public, a commanding, dirty talking rogue in the bedroom.
Daughter of legendary fighter “The Saint,” Lily St. Claire knows firsthand how fighters can be. As the owner of a chain of MMA gyms, she’s no stranger to aggressive, dominating, and possessive men. That’s why she’s always kept her distance. But the day Jax Knight walks through her door she’s captivated by his charm. Stunningly handsome, well mannered, Ivy League educated, and confident, he shatters all the preconceived notions she’d come to think were true about men who trained to fight.
But falling for someone so soon after her breakup wasn’t something she’d planned on. And definitely not something her ex plans to allow.
Wow! Just wow! Not since Gina Maxwell's Fighting for Love series have I read a deliciously hot MMA romance.
I loved that Jax and Lily’s relationship happened slowly. Their romance didn't happen at a fever pitch instead there was courting and affirming of feelings before their relationship got hot and heavy. Both characters had their own struggles to get through but found each other during their healing process.
Jax had me swooning. He was my favorite kind of hero. One that had brains, brawn, heart and was dirty as all get out. And yes, I am fanning myself as I write this.
I like that Vi didn’t over use the sex scenes to let the reader know where their relationship was going. Instead she gave it small mention and only broke out the hot scenes when it really mattered to the story itself.
This book gets five stars because I couldn't put it down and it made me want more and more of Jax and Lily. I didn’t want to leave their world.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
