My recommendation: Read it
Summary from goodreads.com: Michael Gallo found his calling in life – he wants to kick ass. He works at Inked as a piercer, but spends his mornings training and dreaming of winning an UFC championship. Michael is the road to achieving his goal when a chance encounter alters his world forever. The title is no longer enough – he must capture the woman of his dreams.
Dr. Mia Greco is dedicated to saving lives and helping those less fortunate. She doesn’t have time to meet Mr. Right with her busy schedule. She buries herself in her work and helping humanity. Fate steps in and sweeps the carpet out from under her. She tries to deny the pull to him, a man that uses his fists for gain, but the universe won’t let her walk away so easy and Michael isn’t one to take no for an answer.
He has a secret that may rip them apart. There are forces bigger than them at work; drawing them in and making their worlds collide – not letting either one of them walk away.
SO MUCH BETTER THAN BOOK 1!!! And that is mostly because Mia was such a better character than Suzy (although Suzy grew on me in the second book). However…
There was the Tammy storyline, which was ABSURD and unnecessary. Ms. Bliss could have gone a different way with that story and it would have been a 5 star book. But because of the stupidity that was Tammy, and Mia’s reaction to Tammy, book has been downgraded to a 3.5.
I LOVED Michael. He was alpha, and didn’t give up when the going got tough. Super steamy sex scenes, lots of the Gallo family and an alpha made for a pretty good book – forego the whole Tammy thing.
