Publisher's Summary

What happens when in order to win, you're forced to lose?
The only daughter of an infamous Las Vegas pimp, Raven Morretti, grew up an outsider. Liberated from the neglectful home of her prostitute mother, she finds solace as a mechanic. With few friends, she's content with the simple life. Flying under the radar is all she knows and more than she expects.
Until she catches the eye of local celebrity, UFL playboy, Jonah Slade.
Weeks away from his title fight, Jonah is determined to stay focused on everything he's trained so hard to achieve. Undefeated in the octagon, he's at the height of his career. But resisting Raven's effortless allure and uncomplicated nature is a fight he can't win.
Jonah trades in his bad-boy reputation and puts his heart on the line. But when her father contacts her, setting in motion the ugly truth of her destiny, Jonah must choose. In a high-stakes gamble where love and freedom hang in the balance, a war is waged where the price of losing is a fate worse than death.
Will the hotheaded Jonah be able to restrain his inner fighter to save the woman he loves?
Or will Raven be forced into a life she's been desperate to avoid?

Can't finish it

Have you ever read a book and you know it's heading for a train wreck and you just roll your eyes and moan and say "REALLY?!?!?!?!?" That's where I am with this book.

This ticks two VERY bad boxes:
1. Main character does a complete 180 in under 2 pages. He's a love 'em and leave 'em type of guy, never sleeps with the same girl more than once....BUT...as soon as he see's Raven, the hot car mechanic his entire personality goes out the window!
2. Contrived drama for the sake of progressing the plot. I tried, I really did, I wanted to believe that the main character wasn't going to let me down, but let's just say she is the nearly 21 year old VIRGIN daughter of a prostitute and Vegasas most notorious pimp..how could this character not let me down.

So, I'm half way through the book and the bomb of all bombs has been dropped...daddy dearest wants his darling little girl to "work" for him....nope I'm done, Audible will be handing me back a credit for this one, just wanted to warn y'all first.

The narrator was amazing though, I would listen to her again and again!

- NEW NAME "Say something about yourself!"

AN ENJOYABLE START TO A NEW SEXY FIGHTERS SERIES

Jonah is a tattooed playboy of the UFL Fighting world who has no plans to settle for just one woman when he can have his continual pick..... that is until he sees the beautiful, innocent and sweet mechanic Raven who's about to change his mind.

This was a listen that I wanted to get back to time after time... Raven was a bit sickly sweet but that was the whole reason why Jonah fell for her because of her innocent ways and that she didn't care for material things.... so don't expect a strong heroine. Their chemistry was instant, so too was the romance but the sex was a little slower to develop but when it did it was sexy but it wasn't heavily over descriptive nor strong words to describe them.

I also liked this listen because they shared their secrets, worked together to overcome the villains and had a strong close romantic bond. There were some interesting secondary characters, humor, drama, a shocking twist and a nail-biting vicious kidnapping. Narration was good and there was no cliffhanger.

Worth a credit? This was a sweet, enjoyable, implausible 'instant' love story with a hot, sexy Fighter and his damsel in distress who had a heartbreaking past. Then, when that past caught up with her, she became a victim of a greedy cold infamous Vegas Pimp/Crime Boss and what followed was a roller coaster ride that the H/H had to endure before they finally got their HEA. Creditworthy and I'm looking forward to book 2 which is Fighter Blake's story.
