Heavyweight MMA fighter, Romeo Wellings comes from the hard streets of New York where his family ties to the mafia cause him nothing but pain. His life takes a surprising detour when he crosses paths with the twin sister of his long time enemy. After a steamy one-night stand, he faces the fight of his life, but it’s not in the cage. The secret relationship that blooms between Romeo and his real life Juliet has him battling his family and a dark past rather than let her go.
The only lawyer in her
hometown of Garnet, Jules Conner is also a volunteer Sheriff’s deputy
and co-owner of a successful MMA training center. Strong and dependable,
Jules is always there for those who need her. Until one forbidden night
in Las Vegas with Romeo leaves her feeling so alive she can’t stop
reaching out to the sexy, bad boy of MMA, even knowing the forbidden
love affair could jeopardize everything.
As the tide rises
against them and the people they love work at keeping them apart, Romeo
and Jules hold onto a dream for a better life together and vow to go
down fighting rather than accept a tragic ending.
As soon as I finished this book I immediately went to Kele Moon's
website to find out when the next book was coming out cause damnit, I
need it now! I loved this book even more then the first of the series,
Defying the Odds. I mean first of all, it's pretty damn sexy. Every
scene that Jules and Romeo are in together is just scorching with sexual
tension. They definitely make a great couple. They had me laughing,
fanning myself and near the end I had to read through some tears. I
love the back and forth that Jules and Wyatt had together; you could
tell they were brother and sister. Some of they're conversations had me
laughing out loud. I even had a little crush on both of Romeo's
brothers and hope they get a chance to have a book. Lord knows they
deserve a little love and happiness.
I loved this book, well
really both books in the series and really hope more people will read
them. I know that I'm going to be rereading them in the future and
telling everybody I can to check them out. Kele Moon has a great story
telling ability that more people need to be aware of. She is definitely
on my list as one author to make sure I read.
