Talk about kicking a fighter while he's down.
Former middleweight champion and confirmed bachelor Tommy "Lightning" Sparks has lost it all: his belt, his career, and now his home. After the devastating fire, he moves in with his drama-free best friend, Julie. One encounter changes everything, and Julie is no longer the girl he's spent his life protecting but a desirable woman he wants to take to his bed. Knowing his reputation, he's determined to protect Julie more than ever--from himself.
Veterinarian Julie Rogers has been in love with Tommy since she was 10 but would love to get over the man. She's quiet nights at home and a glass of wine. He's clubbing all night and shots of tequila. As friends they work great. As a couple? No way in hell. She just can't get her heart to agree. When she starts spending time with another fighter, the man who's always treated her like a sister is suddenly not being very brotherly and enflames her body like never before.
Can two childhood friends make a relationship work, or will they lose everything because they stopped Fighting Love?

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Julie has been secretly in love with Tommy since she was 10 but sadly he just regarded her as his best friend but things changed when Tommy's forced to move in with Julie because he glimpses things he shouldn't, touches things that make him sweat and pant and craves things that scare him to death. But oh dear they just couldn't get it right, they were both tormented and uncertain to move their BFF relationship over to BF with benefits..... and more.
This was a fun, touching and romantic listen as these two loveable friends tried to work things out but it was going to be a roller coaster ride of emotions for them both. Jealousy, heartache, frustration, sacrifice, character growth and some steamy sex scenes all thankfully eventually led to that very rewarding HEA that we romance lovers seek.
Dual POV's, good narration and we get to catch up with Dante and Caitlyn from book 1 too.
Worth a credit? Yes, and I hope we see a lot more of this series becoming available on Audible because there's a Gym full of hotness limbering up and just waiting for their stories to be told.
I'm surprised I enjoyed this book. It's not a sport I have any interest in and the end was dragged out but it was a cute, funny and sexy read, especially if you enjoy friends hooking up.
"Great MMA Story"
I listened to it in one sitting, the story flowed well and was very well narrated. I would definitely be interested in other books from this author.
