Fierce by L.G. Kelso

FierceFierce by L.G. Kelso
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Will shattered her confidence.
Tori had been attacked.

She had a lot to overcome.

I don't know anything about MMA . I'm not going to fool anyone and say this was an easy read for me as I don't have one utter clue of the sport. I still don't. I only read about the passions from Tori, I could feel that coming through the pages.

Yes there is some romance in this, but more of a friendship, a solid relationship that has gradually grown and built on trust. It took a long time for Tori to get there though.

Its well written in that I followed the core of the storyline.
My downside was, I had to make myself finish the book as it didn't pick up speed much for me at all and I felt I was the one putting in the effort.

I've given it a 3 star as this is MY review and my thoughts, however, lots of reviewers have LOVED LOVED LOVED it, and I LOVED it, but struggled. I think more because I haven't any idea, no iota of the sport. And second, I was flagging as it didn't have a meaty bone to it for me to pick.

Tori's MMA career was taking off, until she beat the wrong man. Her training partner, nursing a bruised ego, snapped—shattering her trust and confidence. 

Three years later, Tori’s keeping her fists to herself as she struggles to put herself through college. But when a group of gangbangers hassle her at work, old habits kick in and her fists fly. Max Estrada, a frequent diner customer, steps in and gets them out of hot water, but Tori is still fired... days before tuition is due.

With no other option, she’s forced to take a desk job at her old pounding grounds, where her demons still haunt the cage and the temptation to go glove-to-glove with familiar pro-fighter, Max Estrada, is too much. The sexy Colombian draws her back into the world of MMA and revives her dreams of becoming a professional face-puncher—until Will, her old partner and current Middleweight Champion, struts back into the gym. The secret they share is an unexpected liability to his career, and he's determined to keep her silent. 

With her life on the ropes, Tori will have to face the past for a shot at winning back her future, or carry the weight of a loss even greater than before.

"A unique twist on the fighter trope-- FIERCE is a compelling, original read with my favorite kind of heroine (a kick-ass one)."
