3.5 "Jami's Never Down For The Count" Stars!!

I have to admit that I enjoyed TAPOUT far more than Knockout. While I still didn't like Alyson, I didn't hate her as much in this book. I found her only mildly annoying although pretty much everything I said in my previous review basically stands. Oh and her TSTL moments didn't plague me as much. Or I developed a tolerance. Who the fck knows???

Well its no secret that I’m a girl that knows what she likes. I’m a pretty open book (pun intended) and I like my book boyfriends to be tough, badass, brooding, sexy boys that have a hell of a lot of alpha in them. This series by J.C. Valentine about MMA fighters delivers not only wild punches, but a wild and deliciously sexy ride that will leave you thrilled and throbbing all the way to the last word.

We first meet Ally Blake and Jami “The Judge” Weston in Knockout, the first book in this series

You ever read a book and do this through almost the entire thing?



Yep, this is one of those...full review to come.

**FULL REVIEW**

“The longer she lay there, alone, the more disconnected she felt—with this place, this room, these people, this lifestyle. She wondered if Jami was a part of it. If the space inside of her that was quickly turning into a gulf between her life and his, if it were a metaphor for the current state of their relationship….She wasn’t having a good time, and that meant that

Honestly what a book let me start off by saying I will keep the review short (rejoice ) and yes I will banter ;) so our story starts with Jamie(our heart of gold hero) and alyson(our sometimes naive heroine ) our story starts with them being hopelessly in love (duh) as much as I want to get into the nitty gritty ill spare the thought , the reason I fell in love with our alpha male isn't because of the sex (it wasn't their that much but the little teasers we're sweet) or that fact he's gorgeous b ...more

I absolutely love everything JC Valentine writes. I have read all of her books and they are absolutly not put downable!!

This books concludes the Knockout series and I fell in love with Jami even more. Alyson's trying to help out a client gets her into hot water and instead of being honest with Jami she lies and does not tell him that she has lost her job. Jami finds out and basically kicks Alyson to the curb. This bit of drama is the only glitch in their relationship and due to Alyson getting dr

Alyson that girl can be shy but she doesn't like others into her and Jami's private business if you get my meaning, and Jami he just wants the world to know Aly's his girl so of course he doesn't care who knows they're having sex, "what? that we were going to have sex?" He took a step toward her. "That I'm going to lay you down on this bed and eff you. All. Night. Long?" I loved his reactions to her texts while he's away, "Jami's response was nothing short of expected. "Are you trying to get som ...more

Great Finish. Still disliked Don, after Aly helping them out, he still didn't like her, so there were times when I wanted to throat punch him and do a round-house kick to his face! (LOL )

Loved the ending, i don't know if there is a story about Spencer but would like to read more of what happens to him.

This book starts off where the other one ended. Jami and Alyson have been seeing each other and to say that there is a few rough patches is an understatement. There is a lot more drama in this book then the first one. Alyson has decided to bring her job home with her in the form of Victoria and her son Miles. She is helping take them out of the abusive place they was at with Victoria husband Tony. That guy gets on my everlasting last nerve. I mean come on how deceitful can one person actually be ...more

Tapout out picks up right where from Knockout left off. So you need to of read book one (Knockout) before you read book2 (Tapout) or you will have no idea what is happening.

I am a big fan of J.C. Valentine. I have read all her books but she knocked it out of the park with this series. I read Knockout months ago but to prepare for Tapout I re-read it. Tapout starts right where Knockout ended. If you read Knockout it left you with a big cliff hanger but Tapout clears up all the doubts from knockout. Jami is not ready for a relationship with Ally but as Tap out progress you see that things start to turn into a relationship. Jami career advance towards the title, Tori ...more

Jami, with his brain finally catching up with his heart, was more vocal and expressive of his feelings for Alyson in this book. It's so sweet how easily he can say I love you to her, knowing how he insisted he wasn't ready for anything serious in book 1. He was still possessive, caring, protective, a bit of a caveman... but now he called himself Alyson's boyfriend. A far cry from the no-commitment guy he was in the previous book. And I just melt with how he can combine sweetness with his dirty m

Tapout is the second and final book in the Wayward Fighters Series from JC Valentine.

Allie understands that helping her clients too much can get her fired, but it’s a risk she’s willing to take. She cannot stand to see women and children in need of a safe place to live. When she helps Tori and Miles, that is exactly what happens, she gets fired.

Meanwhile, Jamie is on the road, trying to focus on winning while missing Allie, and dealing with his friend, Spencer’s galactic screw-up. All he wants

That is until a betrayal rocks his world and everything around him comes tumbling down. Jami is left make a decision that could take everything from him.

I was given this book in an ARR for on honest review.

This is a great book. It must be said that it is not a stand alone book. The first in the series Knock Out must be read first, so I did need to download that first to understand the plot of the story. I enjoyed the first book enough to immediately jump into book 2. The struggle between Jami (the hot fighter) and Aly the all too innocent heroine continues in this book. It is an up and down rollercoaster between these two with others standing i

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Tapout picked up where Knockout left off and I loved this book even more than Knockout.

Jami and Ally are pushed to their limit. Love and friendships are tested. Some survive some don't. Jami learns that even though he fights alone in the ring he is never alone in life. Ally pays the price for caring too much about her clients.

I cried, laughed, got super mad at some people and loved some even more than before. Sad to see th

Oh.

Gosh.

This book was SO effing good! I adored the first book, but I honestly think I enjoyed this one more. Jami and Allison are the most perfect pair, and the banter they have back and forth is so entertaining. I became an instant fan after I read Knockout, but after finishing Tapout, I am now a completely devoted fan. 6 stars!

I so loved this book. I love fighter books and this certainly didn't disappoint me.

I so loved the relationship between Jami and Ally. The connection between these two was electric. I felt through the authors words the true raw love that these two have for each other. This book is full of drama and action. I read it in one sitting. Was glued from start to finish.

I've now got a new favourite author. Am off now to see what other books she's written:)

Trust and loyalty. Two words that mean something to everyone. What are the instances when you find trust and loyalty shaken? Shattered... Just when you thought you knew that trust and loyalty was reciprocated. Some things just aren't forgivable.

4.5 'tapped out' STARS!!!

I'm not going to say much - because this book REALLY does stand on its own two feet. But I'll fill you in on a few, non-spoiler, facts.

When I finished Knockout, I was happy with where Jamison, AKA Jami, and Alyson, AKA Aly, were.

Jami & Alyson's journey to a hea.

2nd book conclusion.
History brought them together. Circumstances may keep them apart.

In the first book I learned that Alyson and Jami were childhood friends, Alyson grew up in a home of domestic violence and Jami used to sneak in her window and comfort her. I loved Jamison for that and I admit it made me swoon, he was a guardian angel in a young girls life and a good friend.

In Knockout both finally come together when Alyson is dragged along to a MMA match by h

What could be better than a sexy MMA fighter, let me tell you...one that is not only a hot alpha but his heart is true. He finally is more open to everything he has been feeling for Alyson since the first book and I enjoyed watching him realize it all over the two books. Jamison really captured my heart with his caring and protective ways.

Once again things aren't going to be easy for Jamison and Alyson. They are going to have struggles and its really going to test the love they have for each ot

Jami is a great guy , ok he does have anger issues , he is a fighter so he takes it out in the ring , he is extremely possessive and protective but DAMN IT IS HOT !! I think what I love about him the most is that even when Alyson drives him crazy or he takes off because he is mad he never strays from her. He says he is a 1 woman man and even when they have yet to label their relationship he holds true to that. I know cheating and guys screwing everything that walks make

Tapout starts off where Knockout left us...Alyson is cringing trying to get through one of Jami's fights.

Jami is now training to be a heavyweight and Don is coming down on him pretty hard.Jami is determined to get in the ring with Tony Michaels.

After a lot of bad judgment calls and Alyson's naivety her actions begin to come crashing down on her and her excuses can not get her out of it. Jami hides something until the last minute from Alyson and she hi

Ally and Jami are back, pretty much starting right where the first book left off. They are doing well, although some of their same issues are still there - both still have the tendency to either run away from one another or just shut the other out. Also, Don, Jami's trainer and sort-of father figure, still hates Ally, for reasons somewhat unknown.

I loved Knockout. I could not wait for Tapout to see how J.C. Valentine ended the series for this couple.

The beginning of this book was a little slow for me. I didn't get the "can't put it down" stage until I was a little more than half way into the book.

Jami and Alyson were a great couple, their sex scenes were playful at times, loving and tender at times and hot as hell at times. I love a good alpha male hero and Jami was that in spades.

I liked how the author developed the relationship between
