When Jude is suddenly offered the fight of a lifetime by his head coach, there is only one tiny string attached. He decides to go for it, but that little string just might turn out to be the one that unravels him completely.
Sadie Briggs is a quiet, introverted tomboy. She was raised by a single father and grew up in his MMA training gym with dozens of sweaty, aggressive men. They only think of her as their sweet little sister, not as a woman who is getting ready to go off to college. That all changes when her longtime crush, Jude Malone, becomes her knight in shining armor after her boyfriend dumps her the week before her senior prom.
Jude feels like he's been sucker punched when Sadie's unexpected Cinderella transformation forces him to actually see her as a woman for the very first time. Overwhelming lust, jealousy and passion turn out to be the right combination to finally unlock Jude's cocky alpha fighter inside and out of the cage. Only one thing stands in the way of him winning the world championship welterweight title and a gorgeous girl. The truth.

Jude ~ One Sexy, Hot, Cocky Fighter!
I loved Jude from book one! His character was care-free, upbeat, happy and just fun to listen too. When I noticed his story was out in audio, I had to snatch it up! WOW! I loved how his character became this sexy, hot alpha with a slightly dominate side, and jealous strike, it made some of the sex scenes hot! Really HOT!
Jude's story was steamy, with some great sex scenes; however, I felt the plot was more on the YA lines. Jude is an up and coming MMA fighter in his early 20's. He makes a deal with his coach to secretly ask his coach's 18 year old daughter, Sadie, to her prom. Sadie's had a secrete crush on Jude and was excited when he asked her out to the prom. She put a lot of effort into looking good prom night, and gained confidence from her transformation, but some of her actions were really immature. This is where I thought Lane Hart did a great job with Sadie's character. Sadie and her actions were a good representation of an 18 year old about to graduate. She wasn't this 18 year old living on her own, working two jobs to support herself, but rather just a normal girl interested in looking good, wanting to party and hangout with her friends and date the guy she's had a crush on. However, Sadie also had a really immature side and made bad decisions, especially when she was trying to make Jude jealous by flirting with other guys. There was no cheating; however, Sadie was just about willing to do anything to make Jude jealous. These actions were immature, and felt like something a teenager would do.
I know this is only book two; however, I had change in narrator blues. Aaron Shedlock narrated book one and Patrick Blackthorne narrated book two and honestly they both did a great job. It's just Jude's character had a lot of dialogue in book one, and I was used to how Aaron portrayed Jude's character. When Patrick actually narrated his story, it almost felt like two completely different characters because of the different narrator styles. Just my opinion, in series where the same characters will appear in each book, and have a strong presence, I think having the same narrator who develops and uses the same voice for the characters, adds consistency and makes it easier and quicker to identify the characters by their voice. It's also more enjoyable getting to know the characters voices.
Other than the immature actions of Sadie, I enjoyed this story and loved how Lane developed the plot to include the other characters who will appear in future stories. I can't wait to listen to their stories, especially Linc's.

GOOD 2ND BOOK....
GOOD 2ND BOOK in the series! JAX IS THE FIRST HOWEVER YOU DO NOT HAVE TO READ THEM IN ORDER THEY ARE BOTH STAND ALONE BOOKS!! Jude makes an appearance in Jax's book just like Jax make appearances in Jude's book! The story lines are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT & BOTH ARE GOOD!! Jude took a bit longer to get to the point where I just can't stop listening! That's why Jude is 4 STARS where JAX was 5! The MOST IMPORTANT PART THOUGH IS IT MADE IT TO THAT STAGE! I LOVE THE COCKY CAGE FIGHTER SERIES! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT LANE HART COMES UP WITH NEXT!!
It was cool to hear a different narrator for each brother!!
**THIS IS 1 OF THE ONLY SERIES I ABSOLUTELY LOVE(so far)THAT HAS A LOT OF ADULT SCENES IN THEM!**

I loved Jude from the first book and couldn't wait to read his story. The younger brother of MMA fighter Jax who made be laugh and smile and this is his own story. Jude is the total opposite if Jax a fighter with girls lusting after him but a virgin wanting to save himself for that special some one. And that special some done turned out to be the dorky coaches daughter who had crushed on Jude forever.
A great fighter romance.
Great narration but I would have prefer and make and female
