From the wrong side of the tracks... Alyson Blake had learned early on that the only one she could depend on was herself. The only light in her life was a boy whom everyone agreed was destined for prison; but with his first kiss, he had set her soul on fire. Since the day the police dragged him away in handcuffs, she had managed to lead a quiet life, but when she attends an event fraught with mayhem, trouble resurfaces. The one person she can’t forget... Jamison Weston is the kind of guy dads load their shotguns for; endowed with a hot temper and a rap sheet as long as both tattooed arms. Known as “The Judge,” Jami’s hot temper, lethal fists, and cocky attitude have earned him respect and admiration both in and out of the ring. But just when he thinks he’s pummeled his past to death, Alyson Blake reenters his life. Two paths collide… After years of separation, Alyson is eager to reexplore the man who’s never left her thoughts, but for Jamison, she’s both the distraction he wants, but doesn’t need. As the two embark on a relationship that neither of them expected or bargained for, an outside threat closes in. When Alyson crosses the line of professionalism and takes her work home with her, her life is put in danger, leaving Jamison with no choice but to once again step in and become her protector.


Nikki's 4 Star Review
I'll start my saying I did struggle with this book at the beginning and it took me a few chapters to get into it but I made myself preserver and I'm glad I did has I ended up really enjoying it. There were a few bits that I felt were a little far fetched but over all I enjoyed the storyline and I loved getting to know Jami and Ally.

Alyson and Jamison were best friend's growing up. Both had a rough upbringing and they were really all each other had until one fateful night when they were torn apart. Years later Alyson is attending an MMA fight and who should be in the ring but Jamison. They quickly reconnect but is there any chance that they could become more than friends or will their pasts and the years spent apart just be too much?

This book does end on a little bit of a cliffhanger but Tapout the continuation of Jami and Ally's story is now available.

Nikki's 4 Star Review

This is the continuation of Ally and Jamison's story and I really enjoyed it,
so much so I read it in one sitting. It's full of aghast, suspense and there's also some quite emotional scenes in there too.

Jami and Alyson have a lot to deal with in this book. They are trying to help their friend Spencer get out of he mess he has made of his life whilst also trying to making a go of a new relationship but it isn't easy especially when someone is out for revenge trying hard to wreak the life they are trying to make. Are they strong enough to pull through everything together and finally get a loving and happy life they both so much deserve.
