Release Day Launch: Review & Giveaway - Fierce by L.G. Kelso

by L. G. Kelso


Tori's MMA career was taking off, until she beat the wrong man. Her training partner, nursing a bruised ego, snapped—shattering her trust and confidence.
Three years later, Tori’s keeping her fists to herself as she struggles to put herself through college. But when a group of gangbangers hassle her at work, old habits kick in and her fists fly. Max Estrada, a frequent diner customer, steps in and gets them out of hot water, but Tori is still fired... days before tuition is due.
With no other option, she’s forced to take a desk job at her old pounding grounds, where her demons still haunt the cage and the temptation to go glove-to-glove with familiar pro-fighter, Max Estrada, is too much. The sexy Colombian draws her back into the world of MMA and revives her dreams of becoming a professional face-puncher—until Will, her old partner and current Middleweight Champion, struts back into the gym. The secret they share is an unexpected liability to his career, and he's determined to keep her silent.
With her life on the ropes, Tori will have to face the past for a shot at winning back her future, or carry the weight of a loss even greater than before.

My Review:

I really enjoyed this well written and attention grabbing story.  Tori is a young woman who had it all until a friend she trusted, her sparring partner Will, shattered her life and confidence.  She is now attending college and hiding from her past.  When she loses her job and the only position she can find is a desk job at her old gym, her passion for MMA is reawakened.  She has to learn to trust if she is to build a solid relationship with Max, a pro-fighter from the gym.  I loved Tori's strength and determination to fight for both the career and man she wanted even if facing her past was the only way to win.  Max is a fantastic man, he is strong both physically and emotionally, he is just what Tori needs in her life.  I loved how LG Kelso slowly developed the relationship between Tori and Max.  This is a beautiful story and I highly recommend it to lovers of romance. ~Booklover Sue
