I read anything and everything
This is the last in the Real series, but can be read as a stand-alone. It's a sweet, a bit too sweet, coming-of age romance, basically. But it's really well written. There are a lot of bonking scenes, but they fit and I actually skimmed them instead of just skipping them. Almost everyone in the book has some sort of weakness or something in their past that needs fixing. Here's the blurb:
Maverick “the Avenger” Cage wants to rise to the top and become a legend in the ring. Though he keeps his identity well guarded, he’s known on the fighting circuit as the new kid with a chip on his shoulder and a tattoo on his back that marks him as trouble. He’s got a personal score to settle with the Underground’s one and only Remington “Riptide” Tate.
As Mav trains, he meets a young girl—the only other new person in the town—and sparks fly. When things get heated between them, he finds out she’s none other than Reese Dumas, the cousin of Remington Tate’s wife. A girl who’s supposed to root against him and a girl he’s supposed to stay away from.
But Maverick fights for the woman in his heart, and the monsters in his blood. The world’s eyes are on them and the victor will go down in history as the ultimate fighting champion; the ultimate LEGEND.
It's not my usual fare,but I did enjoy it.
