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.

    "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...

    Kane and Emmy were great together. Hot sex scenes, my kindle got steamy when the two got together. I loved Kane's alpha side. There need to be a book on Trey and Ozzy. Narrators did a good job.

    Story
    "One wild ride"
    Would you listen to Ground & Pound again? Why?

    Yes, the story is full of amazing one liners, and funny moments


    What does Logan McAllister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has a lot of skills that make the story come alive, adds a bit more charm and sexuality to the plot.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing really moved me, but I did enjoy the story a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    I love a good romance, and this one has a lot of fun the give and take. So much attitude is a plus. I really like how strong "M" is when it comes to how she handles the men in her life, and her brother is so sweet.
    I was given this free copy, in return for my unbiased review

    "hot and steamy"

    I was gifted this audio ARC for a honest and unbiased review from the author/narrator.
    These 2 authors Emily Minton & Alexis Noelle have written a good solid story with Logan McAllister doing a really good narration. Logan was clearly spoken with a nice even pace. His voice is so deep and gravelly makes you want more! It is one of the more enjoyable shorter stories I have listened to in a while.
    This short was extremely well put together and entertaining. I listened to it without a break that's how good it was.
    A MUST BUY!!!!

    "Great Story - Less than Par Narrating"
    Any additional comments?

    I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. I really wanted to enjoy this audiobook. The story is very interesting and the narrator has a pleasant voice to listen to, but he performs with too much monotone. He doesn't put too much inflection in his voice which gets very annoying. Luckily the story and writing kept me interested that I tried very hard not to let the narrators performance keep me to finishing the audiobook. I would love to see this audiobook re-recorded using a different voice performer like Aiden Snow, Jeffrey Kafer, Joe Arden or Luke Daniels. It's still worth a listen, but be prepared not to expect excellent narrating performance.

    3.5 stars

    Very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable. Keep your earbuds in for this one. The steamy romance is hot & heavy in this story.

    A story about an MMA fighter and Stripper is nothing new or unusual and the story is predictable in many ways with a few unexpected twists to keep it interesting. It's a good solid story with really good narration. It is one of the more enjoyable shorter stories I have listened to in a while. Being a shorter story it moves at a pretty fast pace. It's well written and flowed smoothly with characters that were well developed.

    Each have had their own rough patches in life. Kane and his brother suffered at the hands of and abusive father. Emmy is helping to raise her younger brother after their parents died. When they meet the attraction is immediate and sparks fly.

    Logan McAllister does a really good job with the narration as usual. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. His voice is so deep and gravelly just how you want your bad boy to sound. Of coarse his male character voices are great. His female "in character" voices are really good as well, but when narrating the "thinking" female parts it's done in his regular voice which is a bit confusing at times. It's Emmy thinking but in Kane's voice. He was able to bring the characters, their emotions and story to life through his narration. Very enjoyable.

    This would have been a great book with dual narration.

    Repeated lines occasionally.

    "Good MMA Romance"
    Any additional comments?

    Ground & Pound is the story of an MMA fighter named Kane and Emmy, a stripper. Both of them are working hard toward their goals and don't want distractions. When Kane meets Emmy he has to have her. They both relinquish the control that they have so carefully guarded and must fight for their love.

    Even though this is a romance, the first part of the book outlines the domestic abuse that Kane's family suffered at the hands of his father. It was a difficult section to listen to but it was essential to the character development of Kane. Emmy's background was also sad, losing her parents and now supporting her younger brother. Stripping was only a means to an end - putting her brother through college.

    I loved Kane and Emmy's story and their HEA. As usual, Logan McAllister's narration was terrific. I would recommend Ground & Pound.

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.

    "A really good listen"

    I'm a big fan of MMA books and being a fan of Emily and Alexis, I knew this would be a must listen for me.

    Kane and Emmy have amazing chemistry and fit together perfectly. Neither of them has had an easy past and are both broken in different ways.

    Logan McAllister did a great job at narrating, but probably would of benefitted from having a female narrator for Emmy's POV.

    "Strength can sometimes mean letting go of control"

    I has just listened to three books in the erotica section narrated by Logan McAllister and He is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.The man has a voice that will leave you begging for more .He did a great job with Ground & Pound. It's a difficult task to create a complex world in under 5 hours but together Emily Minton , Alexis Noelle and Logan McAllister accomplished just that.Kane Travis and Emmy have such a sweet but raunchy love story it was extremely satisfying.Its a short book so I don't want to say too much in case I accidentally let a spoiler loose.I see another review that hopes that two of the characters here, who I'm sure you will adore, will both be featured in their own audio tales .I 100% agree and hope this happens for both Emmy and Kane's brothers I'd certainly check hem out !The was romance. The wowza kind. The slow-burning kind. The tension off the charts kind. One ship is sailing fast, folks, and it is steamy and romantic and snarky and just wonderful to sink your teeth in to.The point of view alternates between Emmy and Kane, two very different characters, yet with their fates intertwined. It's no easy feat to master two distinct voices, but the authors and narrator managed it effortlessly, spinning the tale in such a way that never once felt redundant even though the chronology overlapped in places. This way, the intensity only amplifies and implicitly keeps you glued to the pages.I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .The romance was so intriguing and all the upsides downs and twists the narration had, make this book a favorite already.

    I think that this is a touching love story and Kane and Emmy both damaged by their childhood are perfect for each other. There are some very exciting scenes both violent and emotional. I have to praise Logan for his narration of the boxing scene I thought he made it riveting. This is a really good story though I think the sex could have been toned down a bit. But that is just my personal opinion.
