Sexy, action packed, and emotion driven this book is everything I want in a romance. Roth is definitely at the top of the romance game.
Quinn Padgett is a very famous extreme fighting champion and wolf shifter. One night he was working out in his gym, in the "bad" section of town, when he hears the sound of a woman's scream. At first he ignores it, because he thinks it is actor pretending but later realizes it is not an act but a woman truly fearing for her life, he goes to save her. When he leaves the gym and catches the scent, he realizes it is not some random woman but his mate who is in trouble. When he finds her, he heals h ...more
Extreme Fighter Quinn doesn't want a mate, but when his shows up his fights in the ring do not compare to his response at hearing her screams.

His loss of Carri keeps him from the will to escape the brutal world of underground vicious forced cage fighting he has been forced to enter. Until once again he hears her screams.

Never has extreme fighter Quinn had to fight harder then when he realizes his mate is not dead. The battle isn't over. She barely has a chance to begin to feel for Quinn when the

This is the first book in the Paranormal Deathmatch series. It is a novella about an extreme fighting champ who is also a shifter, who is forced to fight in Deathmatches after saving his mate after she is being attacked by a group of men. Carri doesn't realize that the man who saved her life is actually a shifter, but is determined to save him. They have an instant, intense attraction. They are mates and when they come together they are explosive. This is short story with all the elements of a f ...more
A book about paranormal boxers fighting to the death didn't sound interesting, but I was pleasantly surprised by Going the Distance. Although I liked the book, I do feel it was a little rushed, and I wish it had more depth and development. I liked the characters and would probably read more books if this becomes a series.

I received a copy of Going the Distance in exchange for an honest review.

Another great shifter book by Mandy Roth. Quinn and Carri meet when he hears her cry for help . Two years later looking for her boyfriend she finds a death match and sees Quinn whom has been missing. Upon finding out her boyfriend had him the whole time , she helps him escape. This book has some exciting action and some hot chemistry. Definatly a must read
Selina Durio
This was a very quick read. Quinn is a were that is a champion fighter and he responds to the call of his mate. Carri is attacked and Quinn responds and saves her life. The story gets a little sketchy at this point, but it was good to see them get together.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was short but intense! A world where paranormal are taken and chains and made to fight in death matches. wow!! This ended well and that is all that matters short and sweet! I would say if you love werewolf 's you will love this book.
Teresa Stirewalt
This was a quick read. The plot flowed smoothly, face paced events. It was almost a bit to fast but the read was enjoyable just the same and I look forward to reading more.
Usually, I'm not a big fan of recreational fighting (boxing, deathmatches, etc) type books. However, the thought of a werewolf being forced to compete in illegal deathmatches while pining over the woman he's destined to mate with kinda caught my attention. Quinn saved Carri from being killed by a group of thugs one night but before he could claim her they were torn apart. Two years later, Carri stumbles onto her fiance's involvement in pitting supernaturals against one another and finds that Qui ...more

Carri has been attacked by some thugs and is saved by Quinn. Quinn was practising in his gym when he heard her pleas and saves her. But in the process he is abducted and thrown into a Deathmatch tournament.

Two years later Carri has just found out what a schmuck her fiancee is, he has been organizing these deathmatches and the star is none other than Quinn. Now it's her turn to save him!

Fast paced but short story. But short doesn't mean there are any loose ends left hanging! As with every Manady
