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.

Review by Susan:
I really enjoyed this book, I read it in one sitting. Jami and Ally are childhood friends, both had hard childhoods and helped each other through. As soon as he could Jami left and made a life for himself as a fighter. Ally is a social worker, she lives a quiet life, drama free. She bumps into Jami accidentally and there friendship is re kindled. The chemistry between them is off the charts, Jami can only do know but Ally wants longer. They both try to fight their feelings, each holding out for what they want. I liked both Ally and Jami, sometimes I thought Jami overreacted at certain situations, he could of handle things better. I can’t wait to read the next book. 4 Stars

SYNOPSIS:

History brought them together. Circumstances may keep them apart.

Alyson Blake’s past left her with scars. Scars that she tried to fix the only way she knew how—by helping others. But actions have consequences, and Alyson is about to find out that being naïve is no excuse.

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?

Review by Susan:
This is the follow up to Knockout, it can’t be read as a standalone. This book picks up where the last one finished, Ally and Jami are still in love, but not everyone is happy for them. There’s a few twists and turns that keep you turning the pages, questions from the first book are answered. Jami is amazing, for someone who didn’t do relationships, he settles straight in and is protective of those he loves. Well worth a read. 4 Stars
