Knocked Out by Ty Langston

Fresh out of Grad School, Hayley Monroe gets the chance of a lifetime when her boss gives her the opportunity to produce and host a reality series on finding MMA’s “Next Great Hope”. Enter former MMA contender Evan Bates. 

His sudden re-appearance into the sport after a mysterious five year absence not only raises eyebrows, but also temps both in and out of the Octagon. Can Hayley keep everything in check? Or will she be Knocked Out?

A short story that was an easy read. I've finished it in an evening.
There is a good potential to develop into something great and be a page turner but I've been expecting more... 

The plot is promising but the author was too superficial in her story.
The characters are interesting. Sad that you don't really have time to get to know them. Evans was well written, with some depth and a complicated background story. But Hayley was lacking of substance.
If think she could have delivered and added much more to the plot.
Their romance (or lust attack) is rushed and not very romantic.

Don't get me wrong, you spend a nice moment. But after reading other books about MMA fighters, I'm missing some adrenaline rush about fights and sensuality in the romance part.

I received this book in exchange of a fair and honest review.
