Olivia James has never been one to walk on the wild side, at least not until she meets Seth Marc - a cocky, sexy fighter at her father's gym.
He's infuriating, nauseatingly addictive and she just can't seem to shake him. He's only been in town a short while and his name is already on everyone's lips. He's the kind of guy moms' warn their daughters about - the kind that leaves a trail of shattered hearts behind him and he has Olivia in his sights.
Olivia has never met anyone as confusing as Seth and his hot and cold attitude constantly sends her reeling. She's never wanted anyone's touch so badly in her life, but having recently come out of a long term relationship diving into another is something she'd prefer to avoid.
Determined for his touch, but not to let him under her skin, Olivia embarks on the most thrilling ride of her life.

Sexy Bad boy MMA fighter meets sweet good girl
If you’re into books with steam, romance and bad boy MMA fighters… you’ll definitely like this one! The story begins with Olivia finally kicking her loser, cheating long time boyfriend to the curb. She decides to swear of men but it doesn't last long. She goes to her dad's gym and finds herself suddenly enthralled by a man oozing sex appeal. This man is a hot MMA fighter working his way towards becoming pro. They have insta attraction but Seth makes it known from the beginning that he doesn't do relationships. However, he is drawn to this sweet good girl and can't stay away. Seth is still hesitant to commit to Olivia but you watch his feelings gradually start changing. Seth & Olivia were super HOT together. I loved the sexy times and the fight scenes. Seth was definitely a swoon worthy bad boy turned one woman lovin’ sex god. You can't help but fall in love with him. I would have liked to learn more about his dark past. Perhaps that will be explored further in the sequel. All in all, I enjoyed Consumed. It was relatively low on the angst which was appreciated. Instead the focus was on Seth and Olivia's relationship growing into something beautiful in the midst of change, heart-ache and tragedy. This book is told completely from Olivia's POV with the exception of the Epilogue. I'm looking forward to the next book once Audible makes it available.

Wow... I was this close (snap finger) from stopping this book and calling it quits right around chapter 3... BUT I am so glad I didn't... This was an unexpected awesome book!
This story started out so teenager(y)... I wasn't sure if I got this from the romance section or not... but I have to admit, after O dumped her boyfriend Blade or Blake... (can't remember) and Seth makes an appearance...everywhere...the story really picks up...
There were some of the hottest smex scenes I have listen/read to in a long long while... The teasing on the couch; right before Seth's fight, and the BATHTUB!!! OMG!!! Gush, Gush....
Then the the bar fight...I was screaming NO NO NO.... and I so wanted to B* slap O, but then... Sethy!!!!
This story changed pace so quickly, I almost had whiplash... Seth was soooo... intense from pushing O away, to literally consuming her life... I loved it...With his family drama, then OMG... the ending...(big o'l tear drop...drip...drip...drip) I just about died the last couple of chapters... I was shocked... and sad, then happy...then content... So many emotions...
Great, Great book... well worth the credit or sale... I try not to buy anything over 10 bucks...so, yes it's worth the wait for a credit or sale...but MAN O MAN..what an awesome MMA romance...Love me some fighter boys...
Narration was great... nice shift in voices and nice reading pace...
Totally consumed me!!!

What did you like best about Consumed? What did you like least?
Best thing was the end......Least - the annoying lead character Olivia! The kid who is easily manipulated into doing everything that she either doesn't want or doesn't want to wear! Who apologies to everyone as though it's her fault when she freaks when a woman rubs her tits on her and kisses her! Who worries about what they look like when they hear their dad died!
What will your next listen be?
Something with strong woman character!
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The narrator voice was good though sometimes a bit fast.
Do you think Consumed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Definitely not I couldn't suffer any more about Olivia unless she became a stronger person who doesn't allow everyone to steamroll over her.
