Rock bottom has built way more champions than privilege ever has.

Blaire, an underachieving college student with zero prospects and a ton of issues (hey, being the less-successful twin of a gorgeous supermodel would totally do that to you) needs something from Ty.

Mixed Martial artist Ty, a soon-to-be Welterweight champion of the Xtreme Warrior League and the hottest guy in the Bay Area, wants something from Blaire.

But Ty has a secret.
And Blaire can barely even handle his truths.

Life is about to throw a few knockout punches at both of them. Can they handle the pain?

I do like a good sports romance, and I was so excited to pick up this read by L.J. Shen! Blaire and Ty were fun to read about and I enjoyed their interaction throughout this read.

Blaire was quite an interesting, laid back character in the beginning. She was unsure of the direction of her life and was under a lot of pressure from her parents and living under the shadow of her supermodel twin sister. The first time she met Ty was entertaining, and I knew these two would be explosive together and it was amusing each time they were together.

Ty was quite the strong and alpha male type, and knew what he wanted straight away. He spent as much time as he could trying to get Blaire to give him a chance, even though she tried all she could to keep him away.

I was a little frustrated with Blaire as she would listen to others before discussing everything she heard with Ty first. He was quite defensive and ran at every argument as well. It really didn't feel like the right time for them and I hoped that they would grow into better people.

I've read a fair few of L.J. Shen's books now, and every book is unique. This one wasn't one of my favourites, but once again it won't stop me from reading her work again. I am keen to see what she brings for me next! 

I really liked the way these two interacted. They didn't really like each other to begin with, but soon their feelings changed.

“You make me happy, Tyler. Which is weird, because you’re not even my type!”
Ty smiles his blazing hot smile, half his face still smashed against the pillow. “Yet you’re here.”
“Yet I’m here,” I agree. “Guess you had me at ‘I won’t hit you, but I’ll hurt you’.”
“You had me at ‘Keep walking, cowboy,’” he rasps.

“Please get mad at me, Blaire. Kick me, punch me, curse at me, break shit. Throw me in the fucking doghouse and let me pay for what I’ve done. But please don’t walk out on me. I can’t change my past, but we can change my future.” He closes his eyes, sighing in despair.

L.J. ShenL.J. Shen is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and 
never sends Christmas cards.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.
