Ryan cleared his throat. "Whoa," he muttered under his breath. "He's going to do such naughty things to you and I want details," he sang.

The pace was pretty fast but that's okay with me as I didn't want a draggy story. You would think this is a cliche romance but things turned out completely different than what I had expected. There were a good amount of twists and turns to the story, making it interesting to read.

We also have a good amount of Alpha males and the steam was really good as well

Super quick audio and available on the romance package. You're welcome!

Undaunted is about three brothers. Three super lost and completely broken brothers. All thanks to their oh-so-wonderful father - I mean, he's basically father of the year in my eyes. Everyone has demons at some point in their lives that they have to suck it up and face.. however, these guys just seemed to have a shit ton of them. It sucked for them.. but I enjoyed listening to it all.

The three brothers in question are Rhys, K

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Undaunted is the second book in Charity Parkerson's erotic No Rival series. This book was super hot and can be read as a standalone. This one is just under 100 pages, and is a great quick and steamy read when you are short on time. I haven't read the first book in this series, but if it's anything like this one I will definitely be reading it as well.

Rhys and Knox are brothers who have always loved the same woman. While Rhys has always been cl

Book one in the No Rival series got me hooked on this series and book two certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Two brothers and one woman. He thinks she belong to him, but the truth is a completely different story. They are all broken in their own way and yet love finds its way despite enormous and heartbreaking obstacles. Not only was the story heartbreaking, it was also HOT. Seriously, I had to wipe the steam of my e-reader.

This series is freaking awesome, it is a must read.

** SHANYN'S 4 STAR REVIEW **

“Undaunted” is book two in the No Rival series. It can be read as a stand alone, and that is how I read it. But……I will most definitely be picking up the first book now! I LOVED this book, and I need more! The Alpha males in this book were AMAZING, and sexy as hell. I need more of these men now!!

Rhys and Knox are brothers, and fighters. They both love Mandy, but Rhys is the one who has gotten close to Mandy. Knox keeps his distance. Mandy believes that Rhys is the

"This isn't a one-time thing. I don't share. Do you understand me?"

"Tell me you belong to me," he demanded. "I need to know you're mine." The desperation in his gaze left her breathless - Knox Collier

I should start by saying I think when a guy says "tell me you belong to me", it's about the hottest thing they can ever say. And when Knox Collier growls those words to Mandy Everett I about lost it right then and there. If you like alpha males and MMA fighters Undaunted is a perfect read for you.

Mandy has been in love with Rhys for as long as she can remember, but their relationship is that of friends, rather than lovers, and he is slowly destroying her life as he breaks her heart.

Rhys knows that he loves Mandy, and is biding his time until the moment is right to make her his own. Content with this knowledge, he thrives on their friendship, and continues to live his life. Focused on his boxing career, complicated family dynamics, and the occasional hook up, Rhys doesn't realise that tim

Somehow I got my reading order mixed up and read Unequaled (book 3) before reading this, so I went in knowing which brother Mandy winds up with. Did this knowledge reduce my enjoyment of Undaunted at all? That would be an unequivocal NO! This was a great story and knowing who gets the girl didn’t make it any less enjoyable, or any less heartbreaking.

Mandy has been in love with Rhys for years. While Rhys loves Mandy, he’s never felt like he was good enough for her and they’ve kept each other fir

WOW Ms. Parkerson…..I really enjoy the way you bring a story together. It’s no holds barred, in your face, not what you expect or really think you want…..but it works out so well? I don’t know how you do it.

I don’t know if it’s the writing “style” but it seems different. I read the first book in this series and was a tiny bit - put-off - for lack of a better word. Things don’t happen like you expect them to and just when you think you have it figured out….things change. Oh and for no apparent re

I've totally become completely in love with this series.  These are novella length books and they are so good, that I wish they were longer because, I always want more of the featured couple.  Course in this book the couple from the first book was in this one and I liked catching up with them. More than anything, I'm happy that there are 4 books to this series (that I know of) and that I have 2 more to read!! (Maybe more?  Will Dane get a book?)

Mandy and Rhys have been friends for a very long time. Both are attracted to each other but have stayed firmly in the friend zone until the night of Rhys' father's death. However, Rhys was so intoxicated that he remembers nothing the next day.

Mandy wants to be out of the friend zone with Rhys but it has been 4 months since their one night together and nothing has changed. Rhys is still flaunting his skanks in front of he

In Undaunted, we meet Mandy and brothers Rhys and Knox. Both fighters and Mandy growing up in the world where Fight Club mentality is a way of life. She's grown up around the brothers and has been best friends with Rhys since they were young. Now in adulthood they each fight off the feelings they have and we read the struggle they go through.

Mandy was a great heroine. Tough without being too tough and still coming across as the girl next door. She knows how to hold her own but maintains

Ooh what joy a woman could experience having two deliciously sexy men in her life! Unfortunately for Mandy Everette, having the likes of Knox and Rhys Collier, MMA hotties so close, was more heartache and questions than joy. Mandy and Rhys special connection began while they were still teens, but there was always something or someone (mostly Rhys other women) keeping them from committing to one another. Now, Mandy's receiving attention from Rhys elusive older brother Knox, unleashing an unknown

One of the things that Charity Parkerson excels at, and that I just love, is taking a storyline somewhere you had no idea it could, or should, go. You just never know just what is going to happen, but it's an awesome, though sometimes scary, ride getting there. This is a story of two brothers and the woman that's meant to be with only one of them. Which will it be? You'll have to read to find out. Undaunted shows you that sometimes only someone who is broken can fit with your own jagged pieces a ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Although short, it really packed a punch! With this book being #2 in the series, it was nice to reconnect with some past characters. The new characters have so much life, and are very intriguing.

Mandy has been crushing on her longtime friend, Rhys. And after a drunken night of passion, she finally gets what she’s always wanted, or at least what she thought she did.

I read the first book and loved it, now I'm back with Drew, Aubrey and the gang. I like how the author left no doubt this is a series. I love the characters, big, gorgeous men with attitude but at the same time they can be the sweetest of men, fighters and lovers. When they love, they love with everything in them. I wouldn't deny not one of them, LOL. Mandy is torn because she thinks she's in love with Rhy

Rhys and Mandy have been teetering on the edge of friendship for years. If you ask either they will both admit that there is not just a spark there but an unchecked flame. The problem is Rhys. Will Rhys give up his man whore ways for Mandy and if he does will she still be waiting for him? Rhys thinks he has ample time to lay claim on Mandy but little does he know about the man who's been waiting for Mandy for years.

Ultra-alpha MMA fighters. Yes, more than one.

I have to say this book surprised me in more ways than one. Before I start swooning, let me get the actual review part out of the way. The plot and story were brilliantly written, leaving me intrigued, invested and enraptured. I couldn't decide if I wanted to keep reading or if I wanted to go back and re-read some scenes. All the characters are complex and well written. It is well paced and so much fun to read!! Definitely never a dull moment.

It's a short and fast read. I liked the story a lot. I think the only problem I had is at times i would get lost and not know what character I was reading about. Other than that I think the story was good and way everything happens between them is perfect.

You have 3 brothers who are all broken do to their father. Each of them has their own demons to fight. Rhys is sexy and can get any girl he wants but doesn't let a girl get too close.

I really didnt think the series could get any better then the first book but I was wrong. This story line was so much better then the first one. I loved every minute of this one. I mean seriously who can go wrong with the characters from book 1 making an appearance and then meeting new ones with deep dark secrets of there own. This one follows 3 brothers and one very stubborn female lead. What I loved about this one is you really dont expect to have it turn out the way it does. This is such a sw ...more

However I didn't read book 1 but I don't feel like I'm missing much of anything with the story. It had a great ending which I'm hoping for book 3 to land in my lap in the future. I must find out what happens with Rhys? I also have a feeling that Kerry will be showing up again in the near future; a girl could hope that they end up together but I get a hint that Dane will also make a more better appearance. This story had total hotties everywhere, basically every page I turned their was another ho ...more

Another of the fast paced novellas in this serie

This is another of the M/F books in this series which I'm now realising I've actually read already but didn't review for some reason.

Knox and Mandy are a good pairing, they're both holding back parts of themselves because of life experiences but find their outlet in the other.

Wow, this one was a surprise! I was expecting a hot love triangle, but I was blown away by the characters.

There is no love triangle here, because love it's so much more as one of the brothers teach the heroine (I won't ruin the book telling which one). I felt in love with the h/H and loved the secondary characters as well. Plus... Wow! Hot!
