Summary

Meet 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). She doesn't do bad boys. Actually, she doesn't do boys, like, at all. Not that she's a lesbian. And not that there's anything wrong with being one. It's just that...well...she kind of needs to focus on graduating from college right now.

And she needs something from Ty. Badly.

Meet Ty.

Mixed martial artist, soon-to-be Welterweight champion of the Xtreme Warrior League and the hottest guy in the Bay Area. He's cocky, arrogant and completely off-limits to anyone with more than three working brain cells...but dude, have you seen his butt?

On top of being a world-class player, Ty has a secret. And Blaire? She can barely even handle his truths. Life is about to throw a few knockout punches at both of them. Can they handle the pain?

Boring and awful narrative

The narrator is more suitable for reading children books. Not usual L. J Shen standard.
I am trying to return it.

Brilliant

I loved this story, mma fighter and budding journalist falling in love.
It's funny, quick witted, heart warming and the narration is brilliantly done and really brings the story to life her enthusiasm and emotion in when the plot calls for it really came across. The best narration I've heard.

Adored

I loved this story. A girl with self confidence issues and a mma fighter with all the confidence to give. I have read all of LJ's other books and I was really surprised by the sweetness of this book compared to the darkness I am used to from this author but it just shows her range.

It did get a little long towards the end. I felt like it was one chapter too long but other than that, I loved it.

Rebecca Snow wasn't my optimal narrator at first but she totally grew on me and by the end I was glad that she was the one chosen for the job.

Different than what I was expecting from LJ, but good stuff.

Based on previous listens, I expected something different. I guess because my previous listen from LJ stretched the lines of the romance genre, and this story fits right into that box. But either way, such a good listen and I loved the heroine Blair. She was funny, and I liked seeing her confidence build through the story. Ty, as a mixed martial arts guy, was super hot and I loved his cocky swagger. Rebecca Snow does a great job portraying both characters. Definitely well worth a credit.

Banter at it's finest!

The banter in this book is my kind of humour! I love the crazy messed up mind that is Blaire/Barbie which all women become at some point in their life, that is if they are normal and tell the truth.
L. J. Shen finely gave me a story that didn't piss me off with her male lead. That being said, it also says a lot of an author that can bring out such emotion. I have loved every book my ears have devoured by her and will continue to watch for all her latest work.

Fun ..romantic Listen

There was enough drama to keep me listening almost non-stop, but a super cute romance! Who doesn't like listening to a cage fighter hunk and the all American cute girl? it had a LOT of fun areas where the author showed her humor. However, Rebecca Snow added a LOT to this book with GREAT narration. I'll listen to this again for a cute, lighthearted and happy romance. who doesn't need that these days?

I feel as though I need to listen to this one a few more times, or should I say Ty's?!

Not what I was expecting, and yet I am pleasantly surprised! I commend Rebecca Snow for her performance; she did an excellent job and I really enjoyed the variety of voices. (When they make the other twins book, please consider dropping the squeal and upseak, for me it would be somewhat unbearable to listen to an entire book devoted to a character with that type of voice -her sister has to hold the phone away from her ear when she speaks for a reason. I do want there to be a book for the model twin sister, I want to know what happened between her and the best friend. I suspect the "best friend" habitually pulls some D-bag moves.)
There were many twists and turns to this love story, Not a straight forward boy meets girl story. It's like an eight layer cake. Layers upon layers of deliciousness. I now find myself really attached to the two main characters Tyler and B(Blaire, Blaine, Barbie -yes Tyler disses the hot girl, all girls really until he realizes he LIKES this one hehehehe.) GREAT STORY!!!!!!!!! #MMA #BadBoy #Romance #Contemporary #College #NewAdult #Erotic #BooksYouTellYourFriendsAbout

Loved it!

I totally judged this on the first few min and put it aside for a couple of months. I tried again and I'm glad I did. I thought for sure I'd end up really disliking Blair. She seemed like she'd be immature and whiny. I ended up being wrong and I'm happy to admit it! Sure, the story was predictable, and some parts were a little eye rolling, but overall, the feel of the story kept me going. Rebecca Snow as a narrator was almost amazing. There were a few places where it sounded like she was eating/chewing and the mouth/breathing sounds are distracting. I wish she'd tone down the drama , it was way overdone, imo. Even with the smacking, odd sounds and over dramatization, I was still impressed.

Great story!

This is a great story by one of my new fav authors! The narrator's voice is slightly annoying at times but the banter between characters made up for that. You'll experience all the feels with this one!
