The Fighter Series #1
TC Matson

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 bed post. 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 a telltale sign—her glassy green eyes, her crimson red cheeks, and the sweat that glistens her face—she wants me. I’ve never had to chase, you know, put in effort to get the 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.

This one just didn’t work for me. It happens. Others seemed to really enjoy it, so it just may be me.
I wasn’t able to connect with Paige. I found her rude rather than sassy and crude rather than clever. It wasn’t so much that she was insecure, we all are in some way. It was that she never once seemed to consider anyone else’s feelings. I simply found her to be unkind. BUT like I said, there are plenty of 5 star reviews that felt otherwise.
Levi was ok. I found him common or unremarkable. He was fine. I liked him better than Paige, but he doesn’t stand out to me.
Overall, I felt like the characters and plot were one dimensional. The story had great potential but the characters weren’t strong enough to carry it for me.
I enjoy the authors writing style and very much enjoyed Matson’s first book, but this one fell short for me. She is writing a sequel and I have been told that book two will answer a lot of questions we are left with in book one as well as a huge character adjustment for both Paige and Levi. So I will be reading UnExpected to see how these characters grow and change.
2 stars and several Long Island Ice Teas for Blindsided. Cheers
