I am a big fan of Tara Wyatt and Harper St. George's Blood and Glory series and honestly could not wait to get Leandro Oliveira's book. I was intrigued by him from book two and wanted to see what was beyond the badboy millionaire/playboy's pretty face. And boy did we get a great story. I though his chemistry with Ashylynn was hot and sexy and could not get enough.

I absolutely love fighter stories. There is something about the broody and tough as nails fighter that is fantastic and gets me every

The Blood and Glory series continues to blow me away. I can't get enough!

After reading Take Down (Book two) I was beyond excited to find out Leandro Oliveira was getting his story next! Leandro is an egotistical and entitled MMA fighter. After his big fight with Champion Gabriel 'The Sandman' Maddox I wasn't shocked at all to find the extreme chip on Leandro's shoulder in No Contest. Even at the top of his game, Leandro feels cheated and not worthy

I absolutely loved No Contest. This book is well written and flowed nicely. The chemistry between the two main characters was steamy hot. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop until I finished. I have read all three books in the series and they are all worth reading. You will not be disappointed. This book can be read as a stand alone. I would recommend this book.

Leandro Oliveira is a playboy with an $800 million trust fund. He lives life in the fast and easy lane, drinking, going to strip clubs, sleeping with strippers and anyone else he wants to. He is a narcissist and hedonist with a huge sense of entitlement. He is the new light heavy weight MMA Champion for the World Fighting Championship (WFC). His attitude and lifestyle have created a social media frenzy and he is in trouble with his sponsors, the WFC and their sponsors. The president of the WFC b ...more

Lots of steamy sexual encounters can be found in the third Blood and Glory story, yet there are also quite a few emotional moments where feelings are expressed with much honesty. Both main characters have set goals that they are determined to reach, and they need to work together or neither may see their objectives come to a realization. But along the way, the tension that put them at odds at first slowly turns to a longing which has nothing to do with furthering their careers. Harper St. George ...more

No contest is the third book (final maybe? I hope not!) in the Blood and Glory series from Tara Wyatt and Harper St George.

We first met Leandro in book 2, where he was portrayed as the rich, arrogant, title hungry competitor, chasing after Gabe’s belt.

And that’s exactly who he is as we get to know him better in No Contest. Rich, spoilt and arrogant sum him up perfectly. As heir to a family fortune, he’s never had to work for anything in his life. Except fighting. The ring is the only place he’s

Guess what? No Contest is here and it is definitely going to rock your boat. The reader has previously read about Leandro Oliveira in the past book but you will get to know more about the cocky yet sexy MMA fighter. And he is definitely a trip to read about.

Leandro Oliveris is known to be the cocky MMA fighter and he does not fight about it at all. He worked really hard for his career that he wants nothing to handle to him. He wants to earn it. However, he does have a particular lifestyle that e

No Contest is the third book in the deliciously addictive Blood and Glory series by the excellent writing duo Harper St. George and Tara Wyatt. A highly entertaining, MMA sports romance that's a definite must read! It had a great plot, complex characters, humor, angst, intense situations, and surprise twists. This story will take you on an emotional roller-coaster from beginning to end, and you won't want to put it down until the very last word is read. I really enjoyed this book, and I can't wa ...more

No Contest is book three in Harper St. George and Tara Wyatt’s Bloody and Glory series. I read it as a standalone just fine, however.

Leandro Oliveira is an up-and-coming MMA fighter who is in need of massive PR help. In comes publicist, Ashylynn Fields, who wants to make a name for herself as the personal PR contact for the WFC. But when she starts falling for her client, things get complicated fast.

The book started with a bang. Leandro is a Brazilian fighter taking the US by storm. He’s really
The third book in the Blood and Glory series reveals that sometimes, the power of temptation is stronger than the pull of a championship belt. This is a sexy read full of intensity, unexpected romance and its fair share of intrigue. Perfect for fans of Katy Evans!

No Contest is book 3 in the Blood & Glory series but can be easily read as a stand alone. The writers have given their readers a hit sexy relationship between a rich playboy MMA star & the publicist hired to clean up his image. Leandro doesn't think it needs cleaned up. A sex tape, illegal racing, drunken parties & nothing needs cleaned up? He even thinks of the publicist as another woman to seduce to gain control of the situation.

Leandro is an MMA fighter and a playboy Billionaire. He doesn't care about anything but himself and is ready to be kicked out of the WFC due to sponsors not wanting to support his poor behaviors. Ashlyn is under contract with the WFC to clean up Leandro's image. If she's successful, she gets a fulltime job at WFC, something she'd love. But Leandro isn't easy to control unless it's her..under him. It's against WFC policy to get involved with another employee so hiding it is hard when the looks th ...more

This story has some really creative aspects to it and the characters are really complex. Leo, the bad boy, mma fighter, PR nightmare client just met his toughest opponent and it doesn't happen in the octagon. Ashlyn is smart, clever and can bring a tough man to his knees.

This is the first book I read in this series and was pleasantly surprised. It was easy to follow and I didn't feel like I was missing anything from not reading the other books in the series.

This book has Leandreo who is a spoiled MMA fighter and does what he wants when he wants. Now its' time to clean up his act before his next big fight. Ashlyn is just the person to do this.

I really enjoyed this!! The story felt real and I enjoyed how easy it was to connect with the characters. Leo had some issues to overcome and so did the heroine, and I liked how we got to see them do that and become better people because of it!! There was no shortage of drama (maybe a little too much...) but in the end, I was super happy with how the story turned out. Great read!!

This is the third book in the series and like the others, it is full of sexual tension between the two main characters. Leandro and Ashlynn were a great couple that fit together perfectly. The book could be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading it in order.

I thoroughly enjoyed Leondro and Ashlynn's book. It was nice to see a different side of Leondro, one that wasn't quite so cocky. Ashlynn certainly had her work cut out for her as far as rehabilitating his reputation.

Their chemistry was absolutely smokin' hot and I really liked them together.

This is a well written and very interesting story. It heavily involves the fighting/boxing world and thats not my cup of tea but it definitely was very well done. leandro is a rich, promiscous fighter. He has a chip on his shoulder and wants a chance to prove himself and he races cars illegally as well. He is a very BAD boy.

Ashlyn is a very good girl. She is a consultant PR person and wants a job with the fighter federation thats behind Leandro. Her job is to babysit him and make him behave. But

The ideas of no Contest is looking to the nature and nurture of the public world. The PR of the WCF is daunting with controversial fighting but also the athletes who are the personality types that are flamboyant and over the top. The story revolves around the most flamboyant of the lightweight fighters as he struggles to find acceptance in a world that his family does not understand.

Absolutely love this series! Leandro is still testing the waters and as always the repercussions are something he flicks away like a pesky fly. His only thought is to enjoy life. That all changes when he meets his Public Relations consultant Ashlynn. She is determined to get Leandro to walk the straight and narrow path to further her career. It is only with Ashlyn he finally begins to change and no longer acts like he has achieved the level of respect he has always wanted.
