Publisher's Summary

Kane Travis is one of the most successful fighters in the UFC. His name is known worldwide. Men want to be him, and women just want him. All Kane wants is the heavyweight title. Nothing else matters to him, not until he sees Emmy twirling around a pole.

Kane has one rule: Never give anyone else control. He doesn't let anyone in, especially women. The night he meets Emmy, he knows she is more dangerous than any opponent he has ever fought.

Emmy Sanders will do anything to care for her younger brother, even taking her clothes off at a seedy strip club. Ever since their parents' deaths, she has been the sole provider for them both. All Emmy wants is to get her brother through college. Nothing else matters to her, until she sees Kane sitting at the end of the stage.

Emmy has to have control over every aspect of her life. There is a time and place for everything, and she never wavers from her plan. The night she meets Kane, she knows he is more dangerous than anyone she has ever met.

Adult content not suitable for those under the age of 18, including but not limited to: sexual situations, foul language, and violence.

    "COMMON STORYLINE, BUT WELL TOLD"

    I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Enjoyable enough listen. World building and writing skill was upper grade. The storyline was common but well told and used a lot of cliche and unrealistic situations. Even with that, the romance was sweet with a HEA.

    Logan McAllister has a wonderfully sexy voice. He does a good female but he only uses it for the quotes, not the perspectives. I occasionally was mixed up as to who's head I was in :)

    ONE BIG THUMB UP.

    "Good story and narration"
    Would you try another book from Emily Minton and Alexis Noelle and/or Logan McAllister?

    Yes. This was my first book from these authors and the story was pretty good.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think the narration was good but it could have benefited from a female and male narrator since it is dual pov. That being said I think the narrator did a good job with the female voices and a really good job with the male voices.


    Was Ground & Pound worth the listening time?

    I think it was. I listened to it in about one siting and I was invested in the story. If you dont mind dual pov with one narrator, I think you should check this one out.


    Any additional comments?

    "Loved It"

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

    This book is one of the most enjoyable I've listened to or read,in a long time. It made me smile! It's a usual romance, nothing terribly deep, it somehow the writing sound the narration had me really liking all the characters in this story. It starts with Kaine as a young boy protecting his mom and little brother from an abusive father. It jumps to his being an adult and an MMA fighter, successful and enjoying (female company) that comes with it. He isn't the manwhore often depicted, or at least doesn't come off that way. His brother brings him to a strip club and there he sees Little amiss Sunshine, Emma. We get a look into Emma's life, parents who died land she feels responsible for their deaths, and her younger brother. She strips purely for the money to get her brother through college and to survive. She separates her stage and personal lives.
    The have immediate connection and although things move fast zi actually liked the book isn't drawn out..it gets to the point with enough background and dual narration to connect you to them and root for them. I like some angst, but not a lot and they quickly resolve their problems I like that!
    The narrator has a perfect voice for Kaine, very deep and sexy...he doesn't try to overdo the female voices which is great. zeh is perfect for this book! Right pacing and emotion!
    Yes worth a credit to me...i am going to look for more books by this author(s) and narrator!

    "Overall Successful Story"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. The beginning really was not my cup of tea but these things happen in life all of the time. I am glad I kept listening because Kane and his baby brother came out on the other side of that horror. The story is fast-paced and well developed after that. The narrator was perfect for the story and did justice to each voice. I am glad for the HEA as well. The story is worth a listen if you can get past the beginning violence. Loved how Kane took on his lady love's little brother and helped him so he could finish college. Ths story is less than six hours and is a good rainy day weekend listen.

    Story
    "Fast paced"
    Would you try another book from Emily Minton and Alexis Noelle and/or Logan McAllister?

    While the story was good everything progressed a little too quickly for me. I would have enjoyed it much more had certain things been more expanded on. With that said if you like quick reads/listens and just need a fighter fix then this is the way to go. I would try another book narrated by Logan McAllister.


    What about Logan McAllister’s performance did you like?

    He has a great voice and I really liked when he narrated Kane's chapters. Unfortunately he also narrates Emmy's chapters and at times I forgot whose POV I was in.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "So Cute...."

    Wow... what a cute little MMA love story. Kane was an up and coming MMA fighter who decided to pop into a strip club with his younger brother, and what do you know... sweet little Emmy was straddling that pole to perfection... So cute...

    The beginning of this book may be hard for some if you have had to deal with domestic violence... that was not a pretty scene...book it brought the book to life in a way... made the characters seem more real... they went through some stuff...

    Nice love story between Emmy and Kane... ended was good... I hope Emmy's brother and Kane's brother each get their own book...

    Narration: Let me just say... I HATE DUAL NARRATION... unless the girl reads the girl parts and the guy reads the guy parts... If not... what is the point... Both of the narrators could have pull this book off by themselves...

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”


    This is a good credit or sale book... although it is not too expensive so maybe even a buy...

    This audiobook was given to me for a honest unbiased review. This was a good story. I love UFC Fighter romances any way, but this one was pretty good. Well rounded in the emotional ring, would laugh and cry through out the story.

    "Pound for Pound Worth It!"

    I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. The characters, Emmy and Kane, are exciting. The authors have done a great job of bringing each of the characters to life. The story holds your attention from beginning to end. The personalities of each of the characters has their own story to tell. This story issues some very complex emotions. You almost cry in parts as well as laugh. The narrator did a great job. However, some times it was hard to know which character he was portraying when it came to the female parts. Loved this book.
