The Fighter Series
Blindsided, UnExpected, & Awakened
By: TC Matson
Blindsided (The Fighter Series #1)
It’s the beginning of Levi & Paige’s journey…
He’s everything I’ve never wanted—an egotistical, womanizing MMA fighter. Yes, he’s easy on the eyes with a body to die for, blue eyes to fall into, and a smile that will make your heart skip beats. His smell is intoxicating, and he’s fun to be around. But I’m not interested in being another notch in his bedpost. I can’t lie and say I haven’t thought about what it would be like. I have. Unfortunately, I know a woman like me can’t make a man like him settle down.
Look at me. I’m everything she wants—a sexy MMA fighter who no one can resist. What? I can’t help they all want me. I know she fantasizes about my naked body on top of hers. Who doesn’t? But she has telltale signs—her glassy green eyes, her crimson red cheeks, and the sweat that glistens on her face—she wants me. I’ve never had to chase, you know, put effort into getting a girl in bed, but she is sending me on the longest treasure hunt I’ve ever experienced. Not even my smile can make her panties drop. But somehow, somewhere in the mix of chasing her, I’ve developed feelings. This cannot be happening.
Good girl and hopeless romantic Paige meets arrogant playboy Levi. The attraction is undeniable, but Paige won’t let herself fall for a guy like him. She wants long term, he can’t even commit to one woman per city. However, the more time they spend together the more Levi can’t stop thinking about her. Suddenly, Levi wants more.
This is kind of sad and heartbreaking. It is frustrating and romantic, but I enjoyed it!
UnExpected (The Fighter Series #2)
Levi & Paige… We learned when Levi loves, he loves hard. But what happens when distance is put between them?
Turns out he was everything I ever wanted—charming, loving, and super sexy. But I knew being with Levi, the gorgeous MMA fighter every woman wanted, was going to be difficult. Especially since he’s so far away training a beautiful up-and-coming female fighter, teaching the very thing he thrives on. I just didn’t realize how damaging and strenuous this would be to our relationship. With so many twists and turns, unfortunately, we both got blindsided by the unexpected.
I’m everything she wants and surprisingly, she was everything I needed. Quickly she became my very existence—my heartbeat. Everything around me faded as she became clear in view. And just because I’m affectionate toward her doesn’t mean I’ve changed. Don’t confuse my being in love with weakness. I’m still pretty damn perfect. I knew distance was going to be hard, but hell, this is agonizing.
Levi and Paige’s story continues in Unexpected.
Levi and Paige got together in book one and now their relationship faces more trials as Levi leaves town for a while to train a female fighter.
Man, TC Matson sure knows how to write angst. I just want these two to have their HEA!
The series keeps getting better with Unexpected!
Awakened (The Fighter Series #3)
You’ve all read about him–the quiet guy in Levi’s corner. Now, you get to meet him. Find out Adam’s secrets and his side of the story.
I was just getting my life under control — new job, new friends, less past. Until I met him — this persistent and insanely sexy man who spoke few words. He stormed into my world with one rule — leave your heart out of it. I knew I had to walk away, but his grip was tighter than I ever expected. I had no idea my past intertwined with his present, yet it almost stood in the way of our future.
My life was exactly the way I wanted it — nothing of importance tying me down and endless strings of nameless and faceless women. That all changed when I met her. I gave her one rule, yet I couldn’t follow it. Her presence caused something inside me to snap and she awakened feelings and thoughts I had tucked away long ago — ones I knew caused pain. I had no control over what was happening. My only choice was to watch, unable to stop our worlds colliding. As both our pasts haunted us, everything around me shattered.
Now that Levi and Paige are settled, we finally get to find out what is really up with Adam!
Poor Adam. He’s all quiet and broody and loves nothing but his car. Nora is the bomb! Then he meets Kelsie, who is….married. Adam has left behind a string of nameless, faceless one-night stands, because after something terrible, he can’t bear to commit. Kelsie changes that, except there is that whole pesky marriage thing.
Here’s the thing…this is not a cheating story. It isn’t. I promise. Kelsie’s marriage is over. Again, I promise. Don’t let that deter you from this truly great story!
