He was trouble, and I was the new toy he wanted to play with until it broke. I had no doubt it wouldn't take much for him to break me, but I didn't care. I'd be left with all the broken pieces with no clue how to put myself back together, but the trade-off might be worth it.

My first thought when I saw this book?
Holy shit, that cover!!!

I'm a total sucker for a hawt MMA fighter book, so once I was finished drooling all over that cover, I jumped at the chance to read

Ladies, come on. Just looking at the cover alone has got you...



My first read by author Bethany Bazile, Fight For Me was an enjoyable read despite some pacing issues, clichés, over dramaticness, and abrupt choppiness in the writing.

The story deals with relatable subjects

am I the only one who didn't like this book that much??

Ok, if you guys know I HATE cheating, with a freakin passion. It's an irony that this book is called fight for me when there was a lot of cheating in here.

I mean I think there was cheating, this is the type of book that I read but the words just kind of go right past my brain and doesn't really click, so hopefully I get everything correct.

the number of cheating that goes on listed... now: (obviously there's spoilers)

All I could think while reading was incest, incest, incest. Nearly every scene with them together made me cringe. I know they're not actually blood related, they're step brother and sister. But my first impression was that they are brother and sister, and so, my brain won't shut up about it. If it wasn't incest, I could probably read it, and would of probably given it three stars. But there is incest, so here's two stars.

Regardless of the incest, the writing style is choppy, but

When it comes to books where the male character is some sort of fighter, I tend to be disappointed. And then become pissed off because I want & need a good fighter romance.

3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story. I liked Ryder and Alexis and liked seeing them get together even if the road to happiness was a little on the rocky side. This is the first book I've read by this author and I liked it well enough that I'll consider trying more of her work in the future.

Alexis is a twin but she lost her twin-brother under very tragic circumstances. She was in a very bad place when Ryder helped her past it. Alexis pulled her life back together but Ryder didn't stick

Wasn't blown away and had a few issues with it. Was still a decent read.

What saved it was the steam factor.
Yay, yay, yay!!!

Absolutely ADORED this book from the heart wrenching prologue to the tongue wagging epilogue! I've had this sitting in my library for a few months, completely forgot about it until last night.

Alexis Cole and Ryder Hayes are me new fave couple. And they aren't just your traditional couple...let me explain.

We meet Lexi in college, in the prime of her life. Only to have her world shut down in front of her when her boyfriend, Logan, confesses to sleeping with her best friend. Lexi

I enjoyed this book! It was hot and entertaining. Did it blow me away? No. But I wasn't expecting blown away, in this category you are competing with Remy and IMO there can never be any competion=) I love bad boy fighters that are pierced and tat'd up!=) Ryder was possessive and a growler...another one of my personal favs. The drama could have driven me

Writing: It was fine. 1st Person Narration. 1 POV.

Characters: Ryder and Lexi are the MCs. They both are products of strange family dynamics. Lexi has accepted it, but Ryder still struggles.

Storyline: The story opens with a tragic event that hits everyone hard, especially Lexi.

Its hard to give an overview of this story without giving it away. I will say that Bethany Bazile did a fantastic job with creating a real life dilemma that is difficult to reconcile. I thought about it for a while after I

Fight for me is stand -alone MMA book with possesive alpha hero,damaged heroine,fights and family drama.I must admit i buy it because of the cover i read Beautifully series from the author but didn't like her style very much so i was in mood for good MMA romance so i give it try and in the end this was great read.

After tragedy, Alexis live with her mum and stepdad,feeling guilty for what happen to her brother,she dosen't let anyone near her heart,she pretend to fell alive

I was drawn to this book solely based on the book cover at first; I mean, look at it! Yummy! The synopsis sounded good and it received good ratings so I thought I would give it a try.

I ended up being part of the little few that didnt love this book. The things that I can say, without ruining the book to potential readers, are that there were some really good parts to this plot but there were some really undesirable parts as well. The good parts could have made this book wonderful. For instance,

I read this book in less than one day! I read it and couldn't put it down... The story sucked me in. I didn't know what the book was about I didn't read any reviews.. All I knew was this book had a hot cover lol....

Loved this one. It sucked me in at the very beginning. I really love it when they are friends as kids and lose contact. Then years later they reconnect. I could read stories like that everyday. Of course they are even better when you add in some great sex:-D
Ryder was tough and sweet. I loved Lexi to. Not to much drama. I was shocked at one point toward the end when some drama happened and she didn't run. She actually talked to him about it. They were great together.
Lots of steamy smexy scenes

This is my first book by this author and it delivered.

I enjoyed this, didn't expect it but lets say that a story that got me a little bit of everything, sad, rolls eyes, smiles, confused, annoyed, wtf, huh, angst and yelling at both of Alexis and Ryder kind of made up for all the frustration and when they finally connected.

WHOA Ryder....

What can I say....It was a nice and steamy story but for some reason, I found no connection whatsoever with the characters.
Hmmm...and wow

Not sure how to rate this story. The storyline definitely drew me in and I didn't want to put it down but I also made notes in my nook about Ryder's actions and called him an asshole a few times. His actions often contradicted his feelings.

The premise: Lexi experiences heartbreaking loss that brings Ryder back into her life. Her girlhood crush who held her heart since she was 13. He left a few years ago when her mom and his dad rekindled their long ago relationship ( but the dad

This is how book starts: Alexis Cole one day lost everything that was important to her. Her boyfriend cheating on her with her best friend. Her twin brother was killed in an accident.

If Beautiful Disaster and Real had a baby .... it would be Fight For Me.
This story was crazy drama filled from page one.

First thing that got me was Alexis Cole is a twin. She looses her brother one tragic night. She blames herself for his accident. He was on his way to come get her and died in a car crash. She felt he was gone without even being told so. My heart was broken.
In a grief filled haze, Alexis tries to end her own pain by drowning herself in the ocean. Luckily for her, her step
