Crossing the Line (Battered Hearts – book #3) – Quick note! While these can probably be read as standalones (and understood well enough as the author backtracks), they are best read in order for maximum impact. You get the “best friends/family feel”, and important new characters are introduced, as the series progresses. And anyway. Like I know many of you, you’ll go CRAZY for book #1 (MMA fighter “Clay” rocked my world), so I highly recommend it!!
A fantastic series about big name famous UFC fighters (title holders & champions, but also up and comers and some that made it far but changed courses along the way…) that have found each other in one way, shape or form in a small town called Garnet. ‘Cause it seems that Garnet is producing some of the best MMA fighters around. A UFC training center, started by a gorgeous and hulking local county cop (that was once a HUGE contender in the UFC world), that he runs along with his best friend (Clay, a UFC Heavyweight title holder) and his twin sister (a martial arts expert).
Soooooo SWEET!! I loved this book, and once I hit the halfway point, I couldn’t put it down. At first I kept comparing the beginning (this couple’s initial connection) to book #1 (Defying the Odds), and I wasn’t sure this second installment would live up to the romantic intensity of the first.
This book pushed me to the edge of my comfort zone. Ahhhh heck. What am I saying. It pushed me passed it. I mean… just look at the cover. You so know what you’re getting into with this one. But it had been recommended so many times, even made my friends cry!! It was obviously not just an erotic “fluff” piece, but an emotional read as well. Considering how much I loved this author’s book “Defying the Odds” I definitely wanted to give this a try.
RE-RELEASE ALERT!! This series (that I LOVED!! Here’s my review of book #1) used to be with another publisher, but the author just got her book rights back and has re-released them! She says:
“…my books Beyond Eden and Finding Eden are on sale for 99 cents. These are long books (particularly Beyond Eden) and I also revised Beyond Eden, extended the ending, etc. . . Didn’t change it, but just cleaned it up and extended it. . . So i discounted them to 99 cents for a few days for the re-release so anyone who wanted to read the extended version could. . .”
