"Take Down" is book two in the Blood and Glory series, but can also be read as a standalone. I really enjoy a good MMA fighter book, and this series is one of the better ones that I have read. Our main characters are Megan and Gabriel. The chemistry between these two were freaking HOT. You know when two characters are so perfect for each other. With these two I ate up every scene they had together. Megan is an easy female lead to love. She is easygoing, talkative, happy and looks at the bright side of things. Knowing what she went through and her still being that way, makes you love her even more. Gabe is distant and gruff. He tries to keep others away and is full of baggage. Megan doesn't care, she wants him anyway. "Take Down" is a truly enjoyable read that will leave you rooting for this couple from the start. I recommend "Take Down" for any romance fan.
The Blood and Glory Series:
The second novel in the sizzling Bloody and Glory series—perfect for fans of Katy Evans’s REAL series and Sidney Halston’s Worth the Fight series—reveals that fighting for your heart is sometimes the only way to beat the demons in your soul.
MMA champion Gabriel “The Sandman” Maddox prefers to live his life quietly and intensely. He plays by the rules, respects the sport, and trains harder than any other fighter. It’s this unwavering focus that helps him block out the pain from a devastating loss in his past. He spends his days slaying his monsters in the octagon, and his evenings numbing himself with sexual conquests. With his painful baggage, he’s not looking for anything beyond his no-strings-attached lifestyle.
But journalist Megan Sinclair won’t leave him alone. She’s intensely drawn to Gabe from the moment she meets him, and wants to know more about the secretive man who both intrigues her and makes her heart race. As she gets to know the quiet, brooding fighter, she realizes that giving in to their intense chemistry could mend her scars. Will these two be able to heal each other, or will ghosts from the past keep them apart?
