Take Down

Wyatt, Tara & . Pocket Star. (Blood & Glory, Bk. 2). Nov. 2017. 315p. ebk. ISBN 9781501170201. $4.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Gabriel Maddox, MMA (mixed martial arts) light heavyweight champion of the World Fighting Championship (WFC) League, is known for his laser focus while training and in the ring. Gabe plays by the rules and enjoys the sheer brutal force of the sport. No one suspects that he needs the physical release of the fight and meaningless sexual flings to numb a painful past he can't overcome. Journalist Megan Sinclair is determined to find out what really motivates Gabe for her exposé articles on the WFC—who needs another fluff piece on the wildly popular sport? Megan's passion for her job is also a welcome refuge from her own past trauma. At their initial meeting, neither can deny their surprising chemistry and firm boundaries are set. However, Megan isn't the type to give up a story easily.
VERDICT This steamy light Sub/dom romance will have readers begging for these two conflicted souls to heal each other. Fans of the first in the series, Dirty Boxing, will not want to miss this story although this can be thoroughly enjoyed as a stand-alone.
