My Swoon for this week comes from:

(MMA Romance #1)

Alycia Taylor 

First - The Blurb:

I got a late start signing up for college and now all the dorms were filled. So I looked in the most logical spot for a place to stay, the newspaper. After finding an apartment with a guy that was supposedly an MMA fighter and only walking distance to the college, I sent first month's rent payment. 

He seemed nice on the phone but when I showed up and knocked on the door I learned that I broke his number one rule, don't ever interrupt his "business". Will I be able to ignore the most popular guy on campus constantly hitting on me or will I give in and find that he's something more?

Second - The Swoon:

When I reached her I wrapped my arm around her waist, pulled her against me and crushed her lips with mine. She was tense at first, but I swear she loosened up after a few seconds. I finally knew what the phrase "reckless abandon" meant. I was risking a knee to the groin, or a slap to the face. But my groin was covered and my face was already bruised and bloody. Most of all, I just didn't care because I realized as I tasted her sweet lips that I had never worked harder for a kiss. I don't know if the knowledge of that was what caused the fireworks to explode in my head, or if it just tasted that f***ing good.

Braxton is hot, loaded with muscles and all kinds of cocky.
Emmi is a sweet girl who is cautious when it comes to guys like Braxton. An unlikely match, but when they are thrown together, anything can happen.

When I picked up this book from Amazon, I didn't do my usual research before hand so I was unaware that this short Novella was just a small taste of the start of Braxton and Emmi's story. 

However, although it's only the beginning, I did enjoy it and so it looks like I'll be heading back to Amazon for the next installment... Devoured.

My Rating: Since this story is only in it's infancy, I shall reserve offering my rating until a later date.
