Instead of Prince Charming, I got Him.

I promised I’d save myself for my wedding night.

Of course, I didn’t know it was going to be a fake marriage to a heavyweight MMA fighter. I couldn’t have known how good it would feel to be pinned under all those muscles and tattoos, squirming, panting, and even whimpering in ecstasy.

None of us knew how deeply he was involved with

This book was just HOT. It was just as good as the first in the series. It was very intense at times but was short and enjoyable. I loved seeing the hero and heroine from the first book make a cameo appearance. There's no great story line here. It's just a light, smutty read with no cheating. It's just HOT and yes, I think I rated it high because the sex scenes were so amazing and the H was just so skilled. He knew how to use EVERY part of his body to pleasure the heroine and the fact that he wa ...more

Wow! This book is sssssssssmoking hot! If you are looking for a naughty book, check this one out. This version also came with the first one in the series so I read that first and I am glad I did. This one has a tie in to the first one, although I suppose it's not completely necessary. But trust me, you will want to! :)

I have not read anything by this author before but obviously I will be reading more in the future! What I really love about this series (besides the steamy parts) is that there is

I received an ARC from the author for my honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. This was an excellent continuation of the Bad Boy series. Again, I thought this story was going to be predictable, but the author skillfully threw in some great twists. I loved the ending!

Bad boy MMA fighter with an innocent girl in a arranged marriage? Add the mafia in the mix and there you have it. I liked it but didn't love it.

In my opinion this book is way better than Still a Bad Boy. When introduced to Austin he as much as a jerk as Jace. Yet he redeemed himself pretty early in the book. I did come to like him a little. Ada Scott really knows how to write men that nobody likes and have no respect for women. That is my biggest disappointment with this series. There is a lot of action and suspense that kept me turning the pages. There are a lot of cringe worthy parts in this book. I read this in the book Innocence for ...more

Ohmyyy, my...
I love the H and h here. Skylar is so innocent and Austin just, ohh, may i say panties melting?
Ok, I haven't read the first book, and i kinda shock in the part where it almost end.
I don't wanna give any spoiler,
But you all people should read it and the bonus atory is just SO much.
Im gonna read the first book now, hope it will be good

This is the second book in the Still a Bad Boy Series and the main couple in this book is Skylar and Austin.

Austin Aquila is an MMA fighter and boy does he fight hard, brutal, dirty. -He is such a bad boy. In the MMA, he is the ultimate bad boy but the company wants to change him from a "heel" to "Mister Nice Guy". So from violent, brutal, aggressive Austin, to Mr. Nice Guy" Austin with all the traits of a gentleman -oh and have him "get married". Only problem is he needs a good girl to do this

Strange and abrupt. Took some effort to stick it out past the initial opening chapters. It got better, then it got worse.

book one was awesome, book two : to die for!! not sure where to start with this one. he's a badass fighter, he's also a womanizer but when shy skylar steps into his room after a fight to massage him all his senses and desires go into overdrive. time is playing against him because everytime he thinks he can make his move on her something comes in between.
then the big bosses have a new plan, one with a whole plotted out scenario. he doesn't like that, not one bit. but then skylar creeps into his

Submission Specialist is the second book in the Still a Bad Boy series. It is a stand-alone book that connects with other books in the series through some shared characters and has an HEA and no cliffhanger. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more from this author in the future. It's not necessary to read the other book in this series first or even at all but I would definitely recommend doing that. I would also recommend this book to fans of bad boy romances, esp ...more

>Book Review –Submission Specialist –

>I am an independent reviewer. This is the second book in the Still a Bad Boy series and ends in an HEA. Austin is a famous MMA fighter. At first he seems to be a typical cocky, alpha, male. After a while it is revealed that the mob owns Austin and he throws fights every once in a while. I missed the reasoning behind Austin’s mob tie in making it hard for me to connect with him. Skylar works for one of the MMA venues as a physical therapist, along with

Submission Specialist was even better than the first book! Austin is the kind of character who doesn't know what he wants and doesn't realize it. Skylar is complete innocence and yet she is stronger than she looks. This book is full of fight, grit and tough people and I am not just talking about Austin. It had me in suspense and on the edge of my seat a few times. I was left clutching my chest with some of the feels and cursing some of the things that were happening. I fell so hard for Austin an ...more

Ugh, when did it become the norm for heroes to be douche canoes?!? When did 'bad boy' mean misogynistic, egotistical assholes? He actual talks about being bummed he could screw other girls during his relationship with Skylar while simultaneously talking about taking her virginity. WTF?! Does he cheat? No, because he doesn't want to lose his title fight. Yeah, thats romantic. I always wanted to give my V card to a man who won't cheat on my because he doesn't want to risk losing a title fight.

This was a gift for n honest review
When Skylar Cross and Austin Aquila cross paths in the MMA locker, it is an explosive encounter. One is an MMA rising star and his temperature is definitely on the rise after he meets her. She is a worker in the locker rooms and the meeting rocks her world. When Austin is told he needs to have a wife to help with his image, he figures Skylar is the one for him. It is a fake marriage anyway, but it will put her right where he want

A bad boy romance that you have got to read! A great book two that can be read as a standalone. The story is gritty, suspenseful, action packed,a little violent, as well as very hot and sexy. I could not put this one down to even eat! Skylar is an innocent saving herself for marriage and poor, trying to survive in a violent world of MMA fighting and mafia. Austin is arrogant and one of the best MMA fighters in the area. He's enamored with her innocence and when told to get an arrainged marriage ...more

Teenage Fantasy of Life and Romance

The edition of this book that I got had both book 1 2 in the Still a Bad Boy series, and the stories were both equally bad. It wasn't enough that both heroines were naive teenagers (18 19, respectively), but we had to be reminded of it over and over as they described their lady parts as their "tiny teen tunnel" or "pink teen petals". As far as the rest of the storylines, Submission Specialist could not decide what it wanted to be when it grew up, a romance (and

Not as good as the first

I had a real hard time with this book. Austin was not very likable until about the halfway point in the book. I mean the way talked to and the names he called Skyler were despicable. It wasn't sexy or alpha. Skyler was just a doormat. She gave him her virginity, let him talk to her like she was just another notch on the belt, and when she asked him to use a condom their first time he said no and she just agrees. Doormat. How come heroines can't be strong and independent?

What amazing story. Ada Scott is got be one of the best up coming writers out there. I read the first and fell in love with bad boys. And I was so excited that she had offer me a change to read her second story in this series, for a honest review. I was blown away. Talk about adventure that Skylar and Austin is taken. Especially Skylar goes from innocent to having her world turn up side down.

Skylar is doing her best to survive even after her uncle disappeared. Austin is an MMA fighter whose boss wants a different image for fighters. Austin is going to get married, but not to the woman the boss expects. He decides he wants Skylar. When Austin defies his other bosses, the Mafia, Skylar will be held prisoner until Austin does what they tell him. Fantastic characters, exciting, suspenseful, with a happily ever after.

Words practically escape me... Submission Specialist is positively sizzling! A real page-turner from the first page to the very last, Ada Scott has written a story of two broken people searching for the impossible... a love strong enough to put the pieces of their broken hearts back together.
