Welcome to Ryder!
You do not have to like MMA or sports to enjoy the story, as it’s all about Julie Stevens and Joey Ryder, with the setting happening to be at an MMA gym. It’s more about the energy and the dedication to train (and the strength that comes from that) that’s important. It’s also a great excuse to pair these two near each other
If you like a brooding/crass guy, who also loves fiercely once those walls are down, then here’s your place! Ryder is all of that and he has been noted by offline readers as being very realistic and reminding them of men that they know.
Julie—our leading lady—is also a pretty normal chick with flaws, strength, and determination, but is also lost on where her hopes and dreams are. We all get in a rut, right? Poor Jules is there too, and Ryder showing up doesn’t help at all!

This story contains lots of mature material. There is a lot of crass language (c’mon, it’s a bunch of MMA fighters!), a few nerve wracking scenes involving physical threats (that never go too far! That’s not the point of the book) and then finally, quite a few erotic scenes, with steam gently rolling off of them...
This book is Rated M
........................a quick note................................
So, when I first wrote this book, I always saw it as a duology (2 books), but after editing the crap out of the first draft, the word count lowered, meaning the extra words added for the sequel don’t make this story a complete duology.
So, if you’re wondering why it’s so long, it’s because I have 2 books in mind here, but figured for now, I want to get this all finished before thinking about it being two books for publication.
For me, this makes it easier to just keep it all in one book! The sequel is one of those that picks up right where the first book ended, so it ends up working as one giant book, too.
