My life is perfect.
I have it all—the woman of my fantasies and my shot at the championship.
It’s all right in front of me. In my grips. I can see it, taste it, feel it.
No chance in hell I’ll lose.

Natalie ✩★ The Biblioholic ★✩
In No Holds , we saw how Ryker and Whitney began and evolved into an almost symbiotic relationship. Well, the love didn’t end there. In No Hesitations, it only got stronger, deeper, and all-encompassing.

❝ She’s my weakness. I’m powerless when it comes to her. ❞

The story bordered on too sweet but it stayed just shy of being sanguine. I liked how the author introduced a bit of drama in this one. One incident in particular showcased how deeply committed and devoted Ryker was to Whitney

No Hesitations was the fifth book in TC Matson’s Fighter series and was the continuation of Ryker and Whitney’s story, No Holds, book four.

I loved Ryker and Whitney. And I loved that the drama was more about external conflicts rather than their relationship. Matson threw in some twists with their life and journey that I didn’t see coming; which made the story more interesting and unpredictable. And amidst it all, Ryker and Whitney’s love grew stronger. I loved that the most.

No Hesitations by T.C. Matson a five star-read worth fighting for. This is the fifth book in the Fighter series, you don’t need to have read the first three books in the series but you do need to have read book four No Holds before reading this book as this one picks up after book four and you would be lost without reading it first. I am in the process of reading the first three as I have loved these two books so much.

Sexy Ryker!!!

I swear I thought Ryker couldn't get any sexier!!! When we first met him, ugh I legit hated him, I wanted to find a dork and stick it in his eye!!! But since his books, I've ooohed I've ahhhhed and I've sighed!!! Ryker is everything all wrapped in one big sexy man, he's fierce, loving, loyal, just to name a few... throughout No Hesitations we will see an entire side of Ryker we've never seen, see he and Whitney go through some very trying times, but will he or they persevere?

Damn, where is my Ryker?!

This entire series is amazing!! I love Levi and Ryker 💙 please tell me there is more to come!! I had to read Ryker's first story again and loved it as much or more the second time! You need to read this series and it will distract you from real life, housework.... sleep.... just read it!!

Ryker...defeated, broken and determined to win the championship to go pro. When disaster strikes and Ryker has to make the hardest decision in his life he does it without hesitation. When Levi, his biggest opponent, steps to his side to support him a newfound determination is awakened. Can he overcome and finally make his dream come true?
Ryker has quickly become my favorite in the series. He's tough but yet a softy, determined and protective. With Whitney by his side he is overcoming tra

I have sat here for most of the day and into the night, trying to write this review without gushing or going overboard, and I'm still not sure I can do it, but I'm going to give it a try...🔥
For all of you TC Matson fans who have already read the other books of

Ryker's life is finally perfect, as he has the woman he loves, and a second chance at the championship. He can find nothing to complain about, until one choice derails it all, and he loses everything. Whitney is excited about her and Ryker's future, until one choice derails everything, and she's not sure that they can come back from it separately, but together, they will conquer all. Let me make something super clear, this is the second book of Ryker and Whitney's story, so YOU MUST READ No Hold ...more

This is a continuation of Ryker and Whitney's story. Definitely has some nail biting situations throughout the story, but oh so alien reading.

As the noted in the synopsis, you must read No Holds first, otherwise you will be lost and have no clue what you are reading.

Ryker and Whitney are leading up to the last fight before Ryker gets his second chance at going pro. Nothing can go wrong or he's out. Until something does go wrong? In one decision will Whitney and Ryker lose everything?

I loved that we got to finally get a real feel for Candice, she was a comical addition to No Hesitations. I also found myself in Whitney's shoes when it

5 ‘Striker’ Stars!

No Hesitations is book five in The Fighter series and MUST be read AFTER No Holds. It is, hands down, my absolute favorite! What can I say? My man Ryker is all that AND a hunk of muscles in gym shorts ;)

I always love seeing big bad men brought to their knees by the women they love, and Ryker is no exception. Ryker is all Alpha male, but I love how Whitney brings out his soft side. They balance each other perfectly. And the chemistry between these two is OFF THE CHARTS! This bo

After reading No Holds, I didn't think I could fall in love with Ryker more than I already was. Boy was I wrong! The passion he shows for those he cares for is uncompareable. Through out their whole story I fell in love with not only Ryker, but with Whitney as well.

I love how she makes sure that she continues to be the same person she was before she met Ryker. She doesn't let him push her around, at the same time giving as good as she gets. These two couldn't be more of a perfect match.

**Must Read No Holds first**

Ryker isn't going to let any stop him from attaining his goals. He has the perfect woman at his side until tragedy strikes his heart. Whitney can't help the man she loves the most when something she did costs him everything. Sometimes when the goal you are striving for changes you must rush towards the future with No Hesitations.

I loved No Holds and I thought T.C. Matson couldn't surpass that book, unt

I have loved every one of the books in this series each one has taken me on a journey and I never thought that I would love Ryker & Whitney’s story as much as I loved Levi & Paige.

This book picks up after No Holds and if you just dive in to this then I promise that you will be playing catch up all the way through. Whitney isn’t really a fan of the violent sport but realises that this is his passion and only wants to support him in following his dreams. You watch as their relationship becomes st

You must read No Holds first, as it is where Whitney and Ryker’s story begins. After finishing No Holds, I had no hesitations (Ha! Pun completely intended) about reading the next book in the series.

Ryker, Ryker, Ryker. He’s got a body made for sin and alpha to umpteenth degree. Uhhh… Yes, Puhlease! Ryker is what every woman aspires to have, Whitney is one lucky lady. He’ll pull your hair and smack your ass, but he has this incredibly vulnerable side that only exist for Whitney. She is truly his

Whitney & Ryker are back in No Heaitations and it picks up right after No Holds ends. I just love this couple they truly balance each other, Whitney calms the raging storm inside of Ryker. The love and chemistry between these two will melt your kindles. This book offers more drama and violence outside of the MMA ring! It is heartbreaking but also beautiful to see Whitney's strength after something so tragic. 
The writing is once again flawless and gives an amazing view of Whitney & Rykers lives f

Never thought I'd love Ryker as much as I love Levi but it's happened! There was just something about this book that pulled me over to Team Ryker "Striker" Hayes. The passion and love he has for fighting is nothing compared to what he feels for Whitney. And when she is put in danger he willing gives up everything he's fought for to be by her side, with no hesitation.

If you're already a fan of this series then you need to read this book. And if T.C. Matson is a new-to-you author you absolutely n

Who doesn't love a good MMA book? Better yet, who doesn't love a good romance book? What if the two were combined? How could you not fall more in love with that? Well, that us exactly what TC Matson did with No Hesitations. You get it all, you get the MMA fighting, but you also get the fairy tale love story evry young girl has every dreamed about. You get the hard as nails tough guy, who by all means, is a total sorry when it comes to the right woman. This story is the completion of Ryker and Wh ...more

Absolutely stunning follow-up to No Holds! I'm not sure if I have the words to rate and review this book properly or to give Ms.Matson the praise she so richly deserves, but I'm damn sure going to try! Once again, we're surrounded by MMA fighter Ryker Hayes, his family, and the love of his life, Whitney. I didn't think we could get a deeper look into Ryker's psyche and personality, but Matson did just that in this book through her wonderful, descriptive words and use of backstory.

This series is a personal favourite of mine. Written with intensity, passion and emotion, it will keep you hooked.

After meeting Ryker and Whitney in "No Holds", you will want to devour this sequel to find out more about them and their relationship.

They face their toughest challenge in this book. It was heartbreaking to read but the author showed us how when you truly love someone with all your heart and soul, you will fight with all you have to preserve that. Ryker and Whitney are both strong

No Hesitations is the 5th book in TC Matson's fighter series. You don't need to have read the first 3 books but you will need to have read book 4 No Holds as this continues Ryker and Whitney's story.

No hesitations starts off where no holds finished. I was excited to continue reading about
Ryker and Whitney. This story had more drama which i really enjoyed and it kept me hooked. I was reading whenever i could because i needed to know what was going to happen.

Another insanely addicting read by TC Matson. The win is so good when the struggle is so bad. It took me up and down, confused me and sorted me a million times, and I found a friend in Whitney and in her decision making like I never thought of before; never thought a character could be so much like myself.

I loved the new character. I feel like Carter is going to be a great addition to this story line. With a heart of gold and an ímpetu of steel he will be an incredible c

Finally, the closure you needed for Ryker and Whitney because gah. I love Ryker, I really do. But, honestly, I have loved ALL the men TC has written in this series. What's not to love with Ryker? Strong, sexy as sin, I digress. These two character's are perfect for each other, their love for each other is untouchable.

I had not read this author before and I can not believe I hadn't,  I am all about MMA and loved this book, I also read No Holds before this which is a must to understand this one .

Ryker is the best around and he loves what he does he has the world in his hands and the love of his life Whitney in his arms , he had it all until she was threatened and he gave it all up to make sure she was safe , his love for her is more and means more to him than any championship.

No Hesitation is the 5th book in TC Matson The fighter series. The conclusion to Ryker and Whitney. Let me just say I think Ryker is hands down the sweetest and most romantic guy. Truly a great man who loves with everything. Whitney is an amazing woman who love's the same way and is also strong. She goes thru a situation that is horrible. Together they go thru some trials in this book and they show how strong and meant for each other they are. Truly an amzing ending. I also love how Ryker and Le ...more
