Loved it, 4.5 Ryder playboy king stars
Tessa is a nurse but despite her profession her past dictates her present, an abused child who needs sex to feel love or to find release.
Tessa:There's no illusion to sex, no secret hiding behind it. There's one goal, one outcome. It's all about feeling good and achieving a high, just like a drug. I can control or demand, give or take as much or as little as I want.
Tessa uses sex to feel in control.
Ryder is an MMA fighter and a firefighter so double hotness, he uses sex because he can, because it's thrown at him and after losing someone close to him, has no plans of a relationship, until Tessa.
A good plot filled with heartfelt and heartwarming moments along with an intense relationship you find yourself routing for as both characters really do deserve each other.
Ryder was so sweet and at the same time hot, loved his character.
"I'm going to show you what it means to have someone give to you, and not just take from you"
Told in dual pov's the author draws you into the thoughts feelings and lives of the characters and brings a brilliant balance with the highs and lows the humour and intimate moments within the plot.
Tessa was an abused child and does share her past so it contains some detail of that, it isn't the main focus, but it does give you an understanding of who she is.
To sum this up: A hot fighter romance with a hea and a recommended read.
