Overworked barista Tegan Holland doesn't know he exists. Not until ten minutes before her friend Fiona drags her to the biggest cage fight Sydney has ever seen. 

By the time he heads back to his training camp in

I'm absolutely in love with this author's paranormal world so it was a no-brainer that I would want to see what he could do with a contemporary story. I have to say I was impressed. Undisputed was so much more than just an MMA fighter story. Don't get me wrong, there was plenty of fighting going on and the author did a great job of giving the reader a behind-the-scenes look at that life, but it covered so much more than that. It had a lot of heart. It was the intense and emotional journey of Teg ...more

This is completely different from anything else of Aaron’s I have read. I liked that it still had his style of writing. MMA is a genre of romance I like but don’t OMG love and that is ok. We are all allowed to like what we like.

Fiona is my favorite character in this book she is a true friend in every sense of the word friend, she is there for Tegan and Owen (when he needs it) and she is who I would love to see get a book of her very own.

Owen and Tegan have that “it” factor for sure. I see why

This book made me feel all the feels. I really loved the story. I haven't read a lot of MMA books so I can't give you a comparison to that, But I feel the author did a fantastic job of sucking me in and making me care about these characters.
This is the story of Owen a MMA fighter who not only is on his way to being the best, He's also a really nice guy. He's hot, buff and can knock you out. He's the type of guy who refuses to hit his opponent when he's down. So are you ready to jump his bones ye

Firstly let me just say, I don't like sports romance. AT ALL. I won't read them. Having said that, I have read everything else this author has written and loved them.....so why not?
I absolutely adore this book!! The characters are so beautifully crafted, some you will instantly have a connection to, and others the connection sneaks up on you when you aren't looking. While this book features MMA fighting, it doesn't drown you in all the technical jargon, instead the author has cleverly devised a

Being a fan of this author I was able to get an advance reader copy, arc, of this story. I was interested to see how he handled a whole new genre since previously his work was in paranormal. I was not disappointed, in fact, I am delighted. Rather than tell you about the plot and premise, which is ordinarily not something I would choose to read or speak of the characters, I will tell you how the book impacted me. This is a feel-good story. But in order to get to the feel good, author Speer is goi ...more

How do you put into words the excellence, the thrill, the excitement, the action, the humor, the love story? Phenomenal! That is it. This book was phenomenally written, executed!!! I feel in love with all of the characters... Minus Diaz that is! You have my Teagan and the love of my life Owen whose love felt so instant. Then you have Fiona who had me laughing so hard I almost peed my pants. Teagan went from a "Plain Jane" who knows nothing about MMA. To a woman who has this hunk of a man falling ...more

Wow this story!!! The way this author has written it, I've had goose bumps reading it. This book is so amazing. I've had tears in my eyes & my heart hurting and then I've been so happy, I've had a silly grin on my face. What an amazing story. Well worth reading. Such a talented writer and a must read for me.

This is an amazing piece of writing. I ran the gamut of motions while reading it, from fun and exciting to tear-jerkingly heartbreaking, to victorious and redemption! Tegan and Owen's story is for one for anyone who may be going through a hardship, or just likes an incredible love story.

Tegan Holland doesn’t follow the sport of MMA, but when her best friend Fiona drags her to the biggest cage match ever hosted in Sydney with ringside seats, she can’t help but to get caught up in the excitement. When they realize their tickets came with access to a meet and greet after the fight, Tegan has a chance encounter that will change her life forever.

Owen Gasnier may be at the top of his game and the sport of MMA, but he doesn’t let it go to his head. He lives by his own beliefs and prin

Undisputed is a contemporary sports romance and so outside this authors normal wheel house of paranormal. When I heard this author was stepping outside his comfort zone to write this book I was intrigued to say the least. I was so NOT disappointed! The story line flows great and is filled with action and some suspense as well as some hot moments. This book has all the feels you want. The characters are so well written it is easy to connect with them, root for them, cry with them, get angry for t ...more

EPIC read from Aaron L Speer once again!
After having read his Undeadly Secrets series, I don't bother to read the blurb. It's gonna be an epic read whatever it's about.
So Undisputed is a love story, far from what I expected from him, and it's a brilliant read!
Excellent story with fabulous characters. Lots of drama and excitement throughout. And plenty of humour.
Owen and Teagan are like a breath of fresh air. And Fiona needs a book of her own!
It's a MUST READ from me!

Absolutely AMAZING!!! There are not many books that completely and utterly leave me shocked and awed, but Undisputed by Aaron L Speer has done just that!!! I couldn’t stop reading it and when I actually had to do adult stuff I couldn’t get the characters and story out of my head or my heart.

Tegan is an ordinary girl with an ordinary job at a coffee shop who was dragged to see a MMA fight by her bestie Fiona even though she knew nothing about it or cared for that matter. She was underwhelmed to

Oh holy crap, I loved Undisputed!

There was everything to love about this book. Fitting squarely into the MMA genre, the technical aspect enhanced the story. The characters were strong and motivated, yet they were real. And like real people, they had their doubts, their down times, and their weaknesses. Teagan certainly held her own against Gaz and his father upon their first meeting, and her best friend Fiona-of-the-smart-@rse-mouth could have easily stolen the show. That chick was on fire! She

This author has been recommended to me by several people. I’ve had this book sitting on my iPad but just hadn’t managed to get to it until tonight. I was entranced from the opening page and couldn’t stop until the middle of the night when the story had been told.

I will most definitely be reading more of his books. This MMA novel was the most believable one I’ve ever read. I felt like I was sitting ringside, I could feel the atmosphere of the singing, clapping and the announcers voices. Owen Gas

Have to start this review with how much I’ve enjoyed Aaron’s other books.
I’m not usually a lover of any sports related books but I am so damn glad I read this.
I can’t begin to give this book the recognition it deserves.
I couldn’t have felt anymore emotions if I tried. Yep I ugly cried like snotty ugly cry. I laughed whilst drinking. Big mistake. I sat on the edge of my seat wanting to skip to the end of the chapter shouting at the pages.

I am once again left amazed! Undisputed was everything and then some. Aaron L. Speer, I wasn’t sure my heart was going to be able to survive. A book that can bring tears to my eyes is a 5+ Star book in my mind. I devoured this book and was up practically all night reading.

This book is brilliant!

It’s my first Aaron Speer book and I definitely wasn’t disappointed.

Sure, i wanted to (and maybe threatened to) junk punch the author at one point when he shattered my heart.

Then as quick as he’d destroyed me, all it took was one page, one line and I wanted a hug!

A MMA fighter on the way to the top and the barista who has no idea who he is that steals his heart. Despite everything life and the scheming shady side of the MMA world throws at them, both Tegan and Owen stay

Speerzie is fantastic at merging action with emotion. This is such a compelling story of love, loss, and finding a worthy cause to fight for. But let's not forget the sass. Fiona, the best friend, side character, steals the spotlight with her wit and lack of a filter. She's who we all want to be or at least have as a friend. Owen and Tegan aren't too bad either and will make you want to cheer on the power of love. This story plays to the heart while being technical enough on the fighting scenes ...more

Full disclaimer, this is my first book by this author. Now after saying that I can honestly say it won't be my last.

This book for me sucked me in from the first chapter and never let up. When an author can in one moment tick me off and then the next make me love him again. That to me is an author folks!!!

This isn't my first trip into the Speerverse, but it is the first time I've visited one of his full-length books. I blame the fact the others are paranormal and that's a touch out of my genre, but whatever. That doesn't change the fact that Aaron Speer knows how to put the words to the page. He knows how to drag you into his world and keep you there for the entire ride.

Owen Gasnier is *the* fighter. And he's in town.
Tegan has never heard of him. And then she finds herself at his fight.

Amazing.
Really. Amazing was the first word that came to mind when I finished reading this story. I was amazed because I was not expecting the story between Tegan and Gaz to travel down the road it did. Even when the author revealed the plot I still didn't think he would stay there. The little bits of real life humor mixed with real world problems made this story easy to read. The flow and the characters made sense. The main characters held center stage. No unnecessary extras to distract or conf

What can I say? I knew he was talented with paranormal books and I had the greatest confidence he could do MMA and I was right. He totally rocked it!
I loved Fiona more than I thought I would and give her props for being the best Bestie Teegan could ever have. I empathized with Robert. And, no shock here, I hated Diaz. I felt for everything Teegan went through and how she still thought of Owen and how much she'd rather go it alone than to affect his ability to do what he's dreamed of and trained

Let me find the words to describe this phenomenal story. Aaron ventured on a new territory by embracing the contemporary romance and God....

When he embraces something, boy does he do it with arms of steel and hold firm until the last word. How much talent is it possible to have in one pen? A lot, because Undisputed is undefeated, stealing the win by KO. It’s a perfect score on every level.

Aaron L. Speer is one of the very few authors who write in third person I can say I enjoy, because he freaki
