Rock bottom has built way more champions than privilege ever has.
Blaire, an underachieving college student with zero prospects and a ton of issues (hey, being the less-successful twin of a gorgeous supermodel would totally do that to you) needs something from Ty.
Mixed Martial artist Ty, a soon-to-be Welterweight champion of the Xtreme Warrior League and the hottest guy in the Bay Area, wants something from Blaire.
But Ty has a secret.
And Blaire can barely even handle his truths.
Life is about to throw a few knockout punches at both of them. Can they handle the pain?
HE WAS JUST A BOY KISSING A GIRL AND HOPING SHE'S LIKE IT AND HIM AFTER ALL.
I loved this book! This is one of those polar opposite's attract kind of read & I couldn't stop once I started.
I'm a sucker for an mma fighter and this gave me the Real feel like Katy Evans's Real and a plot line (only a little part) that reminded me of Preston's from Sea Breeze by Abbi Glines so without a doubt Tyed has joined my happy awesome shelf because they are another two of my faves right there.
Ty is an MMA fighter on the verge of a big fight and Blaire is studying to become a journalist and ends up with an assignment from her teacher on the MMA sport and has interviews lined up at the gym where Tyler Wilder trains.
Blaire's assignment will give her the important pass or a fail on a sport she knows absolutely nothing about and to top it off she hates violence. Blaire has to pass this time after failing the year before and like a champ she is gets on with it.
Blaire's and Ty's first meeting happens when she is in the car-park of the gym standing my her pink car that she shares with her super model twin sister while smoking a joint to calm her nerves, needles to say Blaire is the total opposite to her model twin sister. Ty comments on her bright pink car giving her the nickname Barbie and pulls the joint from her mouth and throws it away, she immediately comes across as a spunky and take not crap character, I loved her and it seems Ty immediately did too.
I listened to this book on audio and thought the narration was brilliant the excitement and the way Blaire came across as the sassy character made me love her more as I followed Blaire's story.
A great story that would of been a five star if I hadn't kept thinking something was missing and that something was Ty's Pov. I felt there were long gaps in time where you were left wondering what happened or what was said in between and that is my only negative, there was room for Ty and I love dual pov this however is told by Blaire's pov in first person.
I love L.J Shen's writing and her characters, I've read them in no particular order and with each book being a stand alone it doesn't matter what order they are read in but I found this a light read compared to others which are a more recent, touch darker and the characters more alpha which I absolutely love.
Another great read by LJ Shen that had me hungry for more.
