This was a great story. A sexy fighter series with the main characters having some serious chemistry.

Jamison Weston grew up protecting Alyson Blake from her abusive father. Sneaking into her room at night to keep her safe while her mother took the beatings. When Alyson’s dad one night crosses the line and comes after Alyson, Jami steps in and finds himself arrested. Separated by that one fateful night, Ally has decided to trust no one but herself. When a chance meeting connects her back with Jami, the sparks are still there and Jami will still do anything to protect Ally and win her trust. And her heart.

If you like MMA fighter stories this is a great series for you. It’s well written and the characters felt real. You can’t help but fall in love with Jami. He’s sexy, tough, and absolutely devoted to Ally. Ally took her struggles in childhood and turned them into her career to help protect other women from what her mother went through. Together these characters create some steamy scenes. But alas, there is a cliffhanger. One that will have you one-clicking the next story. Thank you JC Valentine for a truly enjoyable story.

Blog Page Break 2 SYNOPSIS:

From the wrong side of the tracks…

Alyson Blake had learned early on that the only one she could depend on was herself. The only light in her life was a boy whom everyone agreed was destined for prison; but with his first kiss, he had set her soul on fire. Since the day the police dragged him away in handcuffs, she had managed to lead a quiet life, but when she attends an event fraught with mayhem, trouble resurfaces.

The one person she can’t forget…

Jamison Weston is the kind of guy dads load their shotguns for; endowed with a hot temper and a rap sheet as long as both tattooed arms. Known as “The Judge,” Jami’s hot temper, lethal fists, and cocky attitude have earned him respect and admiration both in and out of the ring. But just when he thinks he’s pummeled his past to death, Alyson Blake reenters his life.

Two paths collide…

After years of separation, Alyson is eager to reexplore the man who’s never left her thoughts, but for Jamison, she’s both the distraction he wants, but doesn’t need. As the two embark on a relationship that neither of them expected or bargained for, an outside threat closes in. When Alyson crosses the line of professionalism and takes her work home with her, her life is put in danger, leaving Jamison with no choice but to once again step in and become her protector.

Jami and Ally’s story continues. But as their hearts continue to connect, secrets and lies are about to test the strength of their love.

Jami is passionate about his fighting. It is everything to him. But when the people in your corner need your help, nothing stops him from doing what he needs to do. Even if it means risking his relationship with Ally.

Ally too is passionate about her job as a social worker for abused women. But when her help to a young mother and her son becomes too personal, her life is forever changed and she finds herself not telling Jami the truth about losing her a job. A definite “I told you so” moment. This one moment could cost Ally the love of her life.

This was a great ending to the story of Jami and Ally. They fought their way through the tough times to remember why they fell so hard for each other in the beginning. Their love is strong and it makes you believe that true love really does happen. Thanks JC Valentine for yet another amazing read. How can anyone not fall in love with this MMA series?

Until a shocking lie is uncovered and all of his plans begin to unravel. Now, Jami is rushing to pick up the pieces, but as relationships are put to the test, will he be strong enough to keep it together, or will it all just fall apart?
