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.

NOT MY FAVE!!!

L.J. Shen is an exceptional writer. That being said, I felt like the book was just 'okay.' In the beginning, I thoroughly enjoyed Blaire's wit and sarcasm, but kind of felt like she deadpanned a lot at odd times (often during serious moments). I loved the idea of Blair and Ty together. I found them to be very interesting character's. I also didn't mind Ty's dark past and his willingness to evolve. However, I hated how judgmental Blair was as the relationship progressed (I get the initial 'shock' of Ty's past but she knew going in, Ty wasn't perfect and he'd changed for her).

I don't look at things the same way

almost stopped reading when she decided it was ok to go to the guys work to confront him about an issue instead of waiting until an appropriate time.

ok read. plot got a bit weird.

not a terrible read in general but the plot got a bit weird and some things didnt really make sense. there wasnt any supporting background info to the weird parts to back them up so they would work well in the story as a whole and it just didnt fit a all. Disliked the male narration soooo much it didnt suit the character but the girl part was fine and flowed well. chemistry was definitely there between the two characters which is always a plus and makes it easier to read but i wouldnt recommend to pay full price or wasting a credit on it only get it if on sale.

Hot MMA fighter? Yes please!!!

I swear, there is nothing better than a hot MMA fighter who cares! Tyed was an unexpected type of love story that I couldn't stop thinking about. I would love to see this turn into a series following some of the supporting characters. The other characters had such a huge part of the story and I feel they need to tell their stories as well.

The narration was great! I cannot wait to listen to other books narrated by Rebecca Snow!

Tyed

I love all of LJ Shen's books but I hadn't read this one yet and I'm really happy I decided to listen to the audio of it! i loved the character voices performed and the overall story was really good. There were a few moments I wanted to knock sense into Ty and Blaire but at the end of the day they remained Tyed.

Finally Listened...

and I'm so irritated it took me so long to listen to this book! Ms. Shen did a fantastic job helping you form a bond with the characters and you realize Tye has much more depth than you first think. I adore him!

Narrator is perfect!

The is the first book I’ve listened to narrated by Rebecca Snow. She was perfectly cast in this role! The book is really great, and she made it come to life. You’ll love this story!
