If only he had resisted the gorgeous girl next door...
MMA fighter Mace Alois can't lose and that's the problem. His old bosses paid him to. He was supposed to take a dive and didn't so his only option was run or die. He thought working across the ocean would be far enough. He was wrong. They've found him. This time he can't run because they've also found his weakness. The gorg

The book was choppy. I liked the main characters, but was often confused about the story line.
The criminal part was ridiculous. They would have not been played with but murdered.
Overall if Author had a good reader to double highlight areas needed improvements it would have been much better, get a blunt third party that actually likes romance books.
Poor editing made it unreadable for me

Couldn't have gotten more than 20 pages into the book. Missing words, misused words, misspelled words. A shame as the storyline and characters seemed promising. I tried to persevere but gave up.

I hate quitting on books.... Untill this book! It was terrible.
Half a star is generous. The writing was all over the place the mix of French and American just didn't flow.
I really tried but I'm afraid I had to just give up and that's a very rare turn of events for me.
Just not my cup of tea

Poor inclusion of French

I'm giving this 2 stars because I think with grammar check the story would be good but the missing and wrong pronouns and other grammar errors ruined the book for me.

Mace Alois is a fighter in hiding. We first meet him when he is helping to train the Preacher's Son Zeke during the Hold Trilogy. With Zeke gone, eyes are starting to travel to Mace. He was undefeated before he seemed to drop off the face of the earth. Now he has reappeared at the GWG to help fighters with their ground game. The only thing he cares about right now is his dog Estelle.

I received this for an honest review. This makes the second book I have read for Jayne Blue and have enjoyed both books a lot.

There were things about Raleigh Gibson. She had her secrets and fears. She was afraid to wonder to far from home. Scared if she did she would have a seizure. There was many fears that came with this. The fear of someone seeing and the fear of no one around to get help.

Mace Alois was on the run. He tried to keep people at arm’s length. He had the mafia after him and knew

I loved the way the characters first meet.
Mace a MMA fighter has just arrived back to his appartment he's barely through the door and he's being well and truly taken down a peg by Raleigh his sweet looking neighbour.
He's slightly flummoxed by his gorgeous neighbour and her fury towards him for apparently abandoning Estelle, his precious little white ball of fluff.
Being the Sexy French Gentleman that he is he allows her to finish giving him hell, before sweeping her off her feet. T

Jayne Blue really knows what she’s doing when it comes to MMA fighters. As she continues with her series about Great Wolf Gyms, the stories are heating up. This one has Mace Alois, the French fighter from the first series. Mace no longer fights because of all the bad crap from his past. He has kept to himself and stayed away from getting close to ANYONE. Until his spitfire neighbor, Raleigh, steps in and throws

"We are going to be together, that is non-negotiable so we're going to have to be honest with each other. We've both been hiding something. In my case, it is big." ~ Raleigh

MMA fighter, Mace is on the run from people who've ruined his life. He's trying to remain the loner, never really getting attached to anyone, his past won't let him. Then he meets Raleigh.

The Ride trilogy has started off with a bang! I love these GWG guys and couldn’t wait to start reading more about them. I wasn’t really interested in Mace when he was on tour with Zeke during the 21C tour but this story has changed my mind. I loved his story and his need to protect his parents as well as Raleigh. I am really going to enjoy reading more about them.

As usual, Jayne has created a story of love, loss, heartache, ambition, need, wanting, and intrigue. The stories she tells

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

I love stories with MMA fighters as the lead characters, so that drew my interest in this book, and I was not disappointed by any means! Mace and Raleigh were very interesting leads, and I love them both. They have a lot going against them, and I kept wondering how things would work out for them. This story does have a cliffhanger, so you'll need to be ready to jump to the next book in the series to find out what happens.

Wow, very exciting read! Raleigh is dog sitting for the neighbor she has never met. When Mace is confronted by his angry neighbor, and lectured on caring for his dog, all he sees is a beautiful woman. As much as he would like to get to know her, he knows that to get involved with Raleigh would put her life in danger. A young MMA fighter gets unwittingly and unwillingly involved with the mob! Loved this book!

This was my first book of Jayne Blue. I was looking for a great book that will keep me going and this was it. The story starts aa MMA fighter from France couldn't keep away from the ring but was a trainer. He had a lot of dark secrets. His neighbor Raleigh was tough and sexy and he couldn't stay away from her. He knows he had to he was afraid his past will find them. Loved the story and can't wait to read Hold Trilogy and more.

Both Need to Fight

An ARC was given to me for an honest review. But I had this in my library. This is an exciting story about about two people having their own challenges that they must learn to deal with. Only Mace's, can get you killed. This is a hot action packed read that will keep you interested until the cliffhanger ending. Enjoy I did. On to part two.
