Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you came face-to-face with your celebrity crush?

Rocky Steele is surrounded by professional athletes.

It’s her job. As a physical therapist in a world renowned gym, she works with the best of the best, from hockey players to MMA fighters. Celebrity status does not impress her. Nor do big, strong men in peak physical condition. Nope. When it comes to her job, she’s 100 percent professional.

Enter Gage James. Her celebrity crush. And the newest fighter to train in her gym. Where it will be her job to put her hands on every inch of the six foot seven, 260 pounds of utter Alpha male perfection. She’s got this.... Maybe. Gage "The Kraken" James is the reigning MMA Heavyweight Champion.

When he walks into The Steele Maker for the first time, it’s like he’s hit with a one-two punch to the chest in the form of a certain raven haired firecracker. His coach’s daughter. His physical therapist. His every waking thought.

He’s in for the fight of his life. The stakes are higher...outside the octagon.

Time to release The Kraken.

Game on.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Rocky and Gage are hands down my favorite couple in the BTU Alumni series. Rocky has been surrounded by the professional fighting world her whole life, and true to form, her celebrity crush is Gage ‘The Kraken’ James, the reigning MMA Heavyweight Champion. 

After a chance encounter with a very impressive woman named Rocky, Gage can’t stop thinking about her. The next day he discovers that Rocky is the daughter of his new coach. At least Gage doesn’t have to go far to find Rocky and start working on making her his.

This book is amazing and so entertaining. Not only do you get a great dose of romance, but the characters are absolutely hilarious. Nothing compares to the coven in friendship goals! You definitely need to read this book!

The audiobook is also so good, I love the dual narration that is done.

A wonderful surprise

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I usually read dark romances with tons of dramatic issues between meeting and the happy ending. I didn't realize how much anxiety those books gave me! Because I kept expecting misunderstandings and lack of communication that would lead to issues. But this was an honest, easy, amazing, love story. I loved this story it was honestly a breath of fresh air. Plus the interactions between all the characters were hilarious.

this book was great

the story was very well written and the characters were super well developed. the author made a very rich world that had a lot of distinct personalities in this full cast book. I mean there were a lot of characters as a lot of interactions happened with a group of friends. and the author gave each character an unique voice where just by the dialogue I knew who was speaking. so that made the narrator's performance that much better because they were able to pick up the nuances of these different characters. I think that right there in its self is proof to a great author narrator combo. as for the couple I like them together. they were very cute and I didn't have any like reservations about them getting together. I really did want them to get together.

the only thing I did not like is this author wanted to do a slow burn, but because these characters were around each other all the time and they lived in the same building, there's really no reason why intimacy shouldn't have happened between them a lot sooner.

it seemed a little too obvious as a reader that the author was gone for a slow-burn but they made stupid Interrupters or stupid things that kept it at bay. it was just a little too thin. it would have been more believable if they didn't live in the same building. or even though they lived in the same building the character should have had more Hang-Ups on hooking up.

the H new sleeping with her could complicate things but he didn't really seem to care because he pursued her openly and didn't try to be discreet in the least bit. but the h had a big hang up on not getting involved with Fighters but then she decided she's going to do a one time with him. which is great but then the author made all these weird dances between them that should have resulted in somebody getting laid.

don't get me wrong I love a good slow burn but this was not done well in that particular area. that's my only negative about this book but I still recommend it.

girl power !

What happens when your crush starts training at your family business and it's your job to put your hands all over him? Rocky & Gage have insta lust for eachother but they need to stick with the 'hands off ' policy... until they don't.
I enjoyed this book by a new to me author and loved the supporting characters which made this book that much more fun! I think I loved the 'coven ' the most and looking for the application to join! Their text exchanges were hysterical. Looking forward to reading more about this crew!
Narrators were new to me and although they were good, they sounded more like they were just reading the book instead of acting it out through their voices.
There was some hot scenes in this book and a HEA you'll love.

sweet contemporary MMA romance

I really enjoyed this one. There is a rich story here full of interesting characters. The business side of MMA is very involved, I love when books delve into the subjects there characters are interested in deeper. the secondary characters can be a little challenging to keep up with. However this is the only book I have read by this author and I have a feeling if I read some of their other books I would feel a little more connected to the secondary characters. There is so much to love in this book. It has an aspect of forbidden romance (not taboo but forbidden), great sibling banter, wonderful friends and secondary characters and lots of steamy times. I would recommend this book especially if you are looking for something with high heat and low angst. looking forward to the rest of the series. the audio production was very well done as well.

Gage and Rocky

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and these characters. Both main characters had strength and integrity. Rocky's dad irked me with some of his stupid rules, but at least he was smart enough to say yes to Gage. I didn't want this to end. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing it to life.

Great story! 🥰

Gage and Rocky for the win! Their chemistry is oozing of the pages, or in my case: out of my headphones!

Funny, witty, entertaining, hot, steamy, romantic…. this story was everything and I loved it!
It’s about MMA fighting, a strong heroine and very hot hero, a close group of friends, other hot guys… need I say more?

Eric Umstott and Zara Knight are bot great narrators!

Book 2 Standalone

I enjoyed this story. I loved all the characters and their dynamics. It wasn’t written how I expected. I felt like some things happened without a lot of build up and there was some things that I thought would be foreshadowing that wasn’t. Narration was great. Eric Umstott has a very growly voice and used it when I didn’t expect it. I recommend this book. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

4.5 from me

This was my first "fighter" romance, and my first time with the author as well. She did a great job with character development, and the narrators brought them to life perfectly. I felt like they were actually real people.

I liked that there wasn't a whole lot of drama in the storyline to keep Rocky and Gage apart. Obviously there are a few bumps along the way, but it was nice to not be gritting my teeth and being anxious until the end.

I am not sure if fighter romances are my thing, but if they are yours this will be a 5/5 for you.
