The only thing Nixon Bennett ever excelled at is fighting. No one ever understood him, especially his parents and sister.

Then Brooklyn Davis walks into his gym, and his world shifts.

Brooklyn is just like him in so many ways, and yet so fragile in others.

Wow!!! That ending was unexpected!!!
It left my mouth hanging open!!! Wow!!!

I knew that something was really worng, but i wasn't imagining something like that!!!
The thing is that novel was so small and it wasn't enough...

I needed more, but i'm pretty sure that my countless questions will be answered in the next book!!! Right???
I could name that book like an introduction to what will have to deal after and i think that it has so many potentials!!! I'm looki

I am a little torn over this book. In the end, I want to know what happens next but that is mostly due to wanting to know the whole story rather than feeling connected to the characters or the story itself.

We start off with Nixon Bennett, personal trainer and MMA style fighter and all around asshole type male. There are sure signs that he is damaged goods and that there is something in his past that
There was really no point to this one. Hero is a manwhore. The hero was not likable by the way he treated other people.

The hero is a trainer and he fights. I think he is an MMA, but not sure. He named his car Tanya. he talks about the car as if she was a person. Sometimes, I thought Tanya was an actual woman. The heroine comes in to train. She wears baggy clothes. She has some history. You find out something about her in the end, but not much. The hero begins to train her. He has sex with anythi
A very short, extremely readable, first part of a serialized novel about a rough and tough fighter by night, personal trainer by day, and the feisty, secretive young woman who wants him to train her in self-defense. I thought the author did an amazing job writing in the perspective of the male protagonist which can be hard to do plausibly. I see writers slip up all the time while trying to write these big, tough, Alpha males with uncharacteristic feminine traits or worse, what a woman's idea of ...more

How disgusting to have a male protagonist "behaving like a pig" and in the open for everyone to see? Do we only have a manwhores in this world? Why can we have a decent guy that values his time and not spending it on screwing everyone?....Do I want to waste my time and money on descriptive sex scenes with this man and women that are not the heroine?

What!?!? As soon as I get into the book it ends with the biggest cliff hanger. Grrrrr...


Nixon (AKA Viper) is an unbeatable cage fighter. He is all in for the sport. Nothing can hold him down. Not family, education, work, friends, or women. Honestly, he is a jackass. He does sexual things with women and then leaves them.

As he works as a personal trainer, he gets distracted when he is hired to train Brooklyn. There is just something about her that gets him worked up. Nixon actual

WTH!!!! WAIT!!! WHAT??!!

Cocky, self-absorbed Nixon aka "Viper", cage fighter by night and personal trainer by day is truly something else. Plenty of eye rolling was done while reading this. He has this love/hate personality.

"I didn't run after girls. They came to me".

Whatever!! But of course here comes Brooklyn, the one and only girl he wants but can't have. They both have issues, that's a given but hers is more serious. Just as the book was getting interesting, the author drop kicked me in th

This one didn't blow me away. The H was a manwhore but it was so bad that I was grossed out by him. He thought nothing of taking a random woman and having sex. He even used casual sex as a way to cope with the things that were happening in his life. He was pretty disgusting. The h was ok and there are no intimacy scenes with the H and h in this book. I am on the fence about continuing the series.

Nixon Bennett is not the man you think he is. He's tough, mysterious, dangerous, a fighter. He doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, especially his family. He'll do what he wants, when he wants, how he wants. Same goes for the women he uses; they are only holes for his please anyways.

All is right with the world, well except that his attempt to tarnish his sister's reputation didn't work, but that is when everything changes. He's got a new client and she's getting under his skin and into his he

I wanted to beat the author with her own book by the time I got to the end of this one!!!

Did you ever meet a guy that was an all around jerk? There wasn’t even one thing you could say that was nice about them? That is Nixon, also known as Viper in this book. Nixon is beyond what I would call a manwhore. He not only uses woman he has no regard for their feelings, that is until Brooklyn shows up for a personal training session and knocks him off his ass.

Difficult to like main characters

Nixon was difficult to warm up to. The scene in which he's having a conversation with his mother revealed him to be spoiled, self-indulgent and without the kind of self awareness that drives both character development and plot. The author alludes to Nixon being a disappointment to his parents and less favored than his sister. But they're still sending checks for his college tuition. That's it? That's the angst?

The female character, Brooklyn, does a slow reveal b
I think the biggest issue I had with this book was Nixon's view on women. He calls women 'sluts' and 'skanks' and 'whores' for doing less and the same as what he does. I'm not going to get all politically correct here, it's not the time or the place for it, but when my hero thinks the way he does, it takes so much enjoyment out of a book for me. Since it's a series though, and not a bad one, that issue withstanding, I'm hoping for some redemption on his part where this is concerned... we shall s ...more

My Thoughts:
RATE: 3.5

Mine has this girl with self-esteem issues, probably a broken heart and I think other damages. A hero who stops his whoring ways the moment his eyes lock on her, and a little bit of family drama to keep my attention.
First impressions are everything right? Well Brooklyn first impression of Viper/Nixon is finding him on a parking lot sticking it to a client. Nixon can’t believe that the girl with baggy clothes and

When I first started reading, I wasn't sure how invested I would be with the characters and plot in Mine. I was worried after the first few chapters that it was just going to be a quick novella filled with a erotic scenes and vulgar words but not a whole lot more. Don't get me wrong - that type of story is entertaining but I like my serial series to be more. I need to truly be enticed into wanting the next installment. My mind needs to be tempted while my lady bits are tingling.

This was a difficult book to rate. I was completely torn about how many stars to give it....let me explain.

First off the characters. Well you have the hot fighter/trainer and he was the kind of guy your mother warned you about, even if Brooklyn doesn't think so. I liked him as a character but I just think he was missing....something. I don't even know how to explain it, he was the bad boy who was rough and didnt need anyone...but I just felt he needed a little bit off the so

Mine is about Nixon "Viper" who is a cage fighter and personal trainer and Brooklyn who is a quiet shy kinda girl. The meet whilst Viper was in a compromising situating with a girl in the parking lot and he thinks nothing of her until she turns up at the guy the next day booked in for a PT session.

Viper is your bad boy type who sees woman as a love em an leave them, and he definitely doesn't come across as the type to want a relationship - that is until he meets and stars working with Brooklyn.

Mine is the first book by Ms York that I have read. Let me say that I love serials and this one is a great sexy read. Viper is a MMA fighter and works at a gym. He is also sexy and gets his way with any woman he wants: that all changes when Brooklyn walks into the gym. You can tell that he likes her from the beginning and she appears to be completely uninterested in him.

This book had amazing flow; I read it in one setting. The characters are well written and easy to connect with. Brooklyn is ve

Hhhhmmmm, I wasn't really bowled over by this book, I had read something with a similar plot line last week so perhaps another time I would have faired better with it, who knows. I couldn't get on board with Nixon whatsoever, I found him brash, childish and completely arrogant. I couldn't find anything that made him endearing to me, so no hook. Brooklyn too, there just simply wasn't enough there, the development seemed weak in the characters. I

I started reading this book last night and in about an hour I was done! It wasn't because I quit the book, it was because I read it so fast, I didn't put it down. And when the book was over, I instantly needed more. I need to know what happens. It left me needing more Viper and Brooklyn.

What happens when you put two broken people together? Do they become a whole?
On one side of the ring we have Nixon aka "Viper" a man that had two lose his best friend. Someone that was not good enough for his parents, and the person who hates his own sister.

On the other side we have Brooklyn, a woman who had been shamed to believe that being curvy means fat. A woman who hides behind baggy clothes. Someone that hides her true self.

Nixon (Viper) and Brooklyn meet when she has the unfortunate luck to see him screwing one of his trainees on the hood of her car when she is leaving the gym. Nixon thinks he is God's gift to women and doesn't care where he takes them or how mad they are when he walks away. Brooklyn has been through some trauma and Nixon offers to help her learn self-defense after they get to know each other a little bit. If Nixon would think with the head on top of his shoulders, he could probably figure out wha ...more

Thank you Netgalley for the free copy in exchange for my honest review!

I really enjoyed reading this book. I only wish it was longer.

The story follows Nixon 'Viper' and Brooklyn. Viper is a fighter
and personal trainer, and an apparent emotionless asshole.
Brooklyn is a quiet, more closed off, girl that starts going to Vipers
gym looking to get in shape. But Viper wasn't expecting to actually
feel something for once while working with Brooklyn.

Wow, I can not wait for the next one! Viper is at the top of his game, the only problem is that you know he will fall at some point and i am on pins and needles, because I want him to stay there. I am so hooked on this book it is insane. Brooklyn is the perfect heroine. She isn't annoying or needy but has a past you are just waiting to hear about. I would love to see how Viper makes the journey into her heart. LOVE LOVE LOVE this one!!!! ONE CLICK MUST!
OMG I did not see that coming. Mine is the story of a guy who loves to fight. He always wins, and nothing gets him down. Used to being the disappointment he has nothing to lose. Until one girl changes everything. How can one girls disgust and disapproval mean so much to him?

Brooklyn has secrets. She wants to lose weight, tone up, and not feel so weak anymore. Then ending will leave you wanting more and have your mouth dropped open asking WTH? Can't wait for more.
Sooo, I wasn't a fan of Nix initially. He was over the top alpha. He was crude and I just couldn't picture myself being attracted to him. Now, that being said, he did grow on me. Brooklyn settled him down a little bit. I loved the fact that although she was timid, she didn't let him walk all over her. There's some mystery behind her past/current relationship which added some edge to the story as well.
