Summary

Chyna: Every chance I get, I go to watch the local fights. I crave the excitement and the rush as it courses through my body, with the sounds of fists meeting flesh. It’s not just the blood or the hard bodies that keeps me coming back each time, wanting more. It’s Jace ‘King’ Kash and his arctic blue eyes. He has fists made of steel with a body honed for speed. He’s breathtaking to watch in the cage. 

The King easily brings men to their knees, and then graciously helps them up when he’s finished. Getting introduced to him was thrilling, falling in love with him, unexpected. Jace comes pounding through, waking my mind and body up; showing me what I was missing out on in my life. He makes me realize what I could have and what doesn’t destroy me, will make me stronger.

Good MMA Romance

Chyna goes to watch Jace fight but never expected things to go any further . Although she plays it cool with him due to her past relationships the chemistry between them is strong and Jace is so sweet with her .

MMA Romance

I enjoyed listening to Willa James

A great listen, still not sure about MMA, the story and the characters flow. There is some spicy scenes. Action and romance

It was okay

I really didn’t like the attempted accents or voice differences but the overall story was pretty good. I think you will enjoy it more if your are into MMA or boxing or any sport in that genre.

This book is hot! Very pleased with it

This is my first book from Sapphire Knight that I’ve listened to & I’m glad I did! I love her style of writing & I was honestly drawn in from the beginning. I love the chemistry and dialogue between the 2 characters, Chyna & Jace. Chyna is like a fan of Jace in the beginning, but it becomes something more.

There are ups and downs for the characters which made it really interesting and kept me hooked, & I loved figuring out what was going to happen. The storyline is on point and I think it’s something that a lot of people can get into. The narration was cute with a relatable voice & it just fit. I don’t want to spoil too much, but trust me you’ll enjoy this book. 5/5!

Loved this book, it draws you in

I really like the MMA theme of this book & the main character, Jace is relatable. There’s a lot to uncover in this book; passion, romance, action, dilemmas, & a lot more. This is overall a love story and I think a lot of readers can get into it and enjoy themselves.

My wife and I listened to this together in bed and I would honestly recommend this to anyone who enjoys romance but also action. Overall a great writer and very enjoyable. Will be looking out for Sapphire’s other books.

Hot MMA Romance

Excellent start to a fabulous new series! Unexpected Forfeit is an MMA romance with loads of heat, steam, and action. The main characters, Jace and Chyna, were fantastic together, and the pull of their attraction could be easily sensed. Their story is fast-paced, gripping, angsty, and suspenseful; it captured and held my attention from start to end. Thought Willa James's accent was very charming, and she did a great job with Chyna's personality, bringing her character to life. Overall, Unexpected Forfeit was an enjoyable listen, and I look forward to the next book in the series.

Jace and Chyna

Sapphire Knight can write one heck of an MC/Mafia book but I have to say she totally and absolutely out did herself with an MMA book. It was stunningly written, Sapphire knows how to write about amazing characters whom you grow to love and adore, they have outstanding depth and intrigue. Jace is an alpha male, with a soft heart. Chyna was his fan or I should say fan of MMA. She had a crush on Jace though and attended a lot of his fights. They had beautiful chemistry together. Then things go haywire. This book is suspenseful, romantic and down right Extraordinary.
Narration was great!

Loved so much

Another home run for Sapphire. I knew once I started this book I would not be able to stop until I finished it. This book kept my tension the entire time with the amazing narration.

Decent story line

The story line was decent but I didn’t care for the female narrating all of the male parts. I believe a man should have narrated that part. I would like to read it rather than listen to this audiobook

not for me

Not what I expected or wanted. These people are supposed to be adults, but they acted like horny teens. Chyna was a tease with no morals from the start . She threw herself at Jace non stop. Why?? Slow down girl. Maybe she was in heat, because that's how it read- like a 'B' grade movie. I was disappointed and struggled to finish listening. It never got better. I won't be continuing with this author. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator made no effort or attempt at the male voice, and the female voice sounded redneck backwoods and not appealing.

Wont be my last from this author

This book was gifted to me via audible in exchange for an honest review. This is a good story written by Sapphire Knight. I love romance but I'm not wild about MMA; however, I love action in my books and this definitely delivers. I loved Jase and Chyna's story and I'm looking forward to more. Willa James' voice is a good "southern" voice. . . I should know. . . I'm from Louisiana. It was almost as if I were reading the book myself. Great job to both writer and narrator.
