As a legitimate fan of mixed martial arts I did not know what I was getting myself into here. The concept of the story intrigued me but the prospect of reading another over hyped romance story like... you know what, clouded my judgement. I'm afraid I should have listened sooner, for I now feel I gave this story the same judgement hesitation as experienced by Katie in this novel. But like Katie, I'm so glad I took that leap of faith and, as Cole would say, 'dove in head first'.
Melynda Price has a way of blending the 'glorified' life of an MMA champion, with the kind if flare and sexual tension other 'lesser' authors can not even contemplate.
Her characters are engaging and endearing and if not for my own experiences I would have been horrified at Katie's final confession of the horrors she reveals in later chapters.
The 'action' is both stimulating and suspenseful, if not for the simplestic 'tension' others less familar with this genre would call 'cheesy'. The unfortunate 'lip-biting' tease reers is over-used head here too I'm afraid. But as the old saying goes, if I ain't broke, don't fix it.
Melynda Price is the undisputed CFA champion of MMA romance. William LeRoy and Neva Navarre portray the leads brilliantly making this one of the best romance novels I've heard in years.
Please, give it a go.
I enjoyed it. I personally struggled with the female narrator, if I'd read the book I'd have read it as a strong woman but the voice over sounded a little bit febble and continued in that vein so only 3 star performance.
It made me laugh and get a bit teary, I liked the story line, although physiotherapists are a lot more savvy about assessing the physical form, so being surprised he was so tall was a lot unbelievable. Over all just shy of a 4☆.
Welcome to an all new Cage Fighter series and it certainly kicks off with a very entertaining first book that throws a lot into a good storyline. Drop dead gorgeous Cole needs a miracle and that's just what he gets when he's sent to rehab with the beautiful Physio Katie but it wasn't just his broken body that she eventually healed, it was his whole way of life..... but it came at a very high price.
The listen starts off well describing Cole's victory and tragic downfall, attraction and chemistry are then added to the mix which ups the listen, Katie's broken spirit, terrible past, mental and physical scars are soon revealed and, by this time, you're hooked into a good listen with likeable characters. Then the ever increasing looming danger in the present slowly slips in created by her mad, bad and scary ex which mixes things up, added to that are the inner turmoils of "should I say I love you", then a secret is overheard which leads to broken trust, drama, heartache and pain. This leaves you with a listen that has a tender romance as a physically broken Cole tries to heal a mentally broken Katie and vice versa, there's some sweet/tender and also a frantic sex scene and it concludes in a pulse-pounding confrontation of tears, bloodshed, death and heartache. But thankfully the Epilogue will leave you with a smile on your face.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's, good narration, a bit of unrealistic healing time but hey ho this is fiction after all right!, nevertheless a very captivating story and YES it would've been worth a credit but my under $10 rule applied so I just bought it saving the credit for a pricier but maybe not as enjoyable listen. So, an entertaining and enjoyable listen at a bargain price.

I thourouly enjoyed book. it was a captivating love story with a thriller thrown in of crazy town ex! great story line, I did find that I would have to rewind 20 seconds every so often bc some bombshells would be thrown in and I would get lost, but then I would here some really great one liners several times over! Def worth an upgrade in audio from kindle or credit!
