4.06  ·  Rating details ·  71 ratings  ·  32 reviews
The only thing harder than Tristan Dreth’s right hook is Ashley Cole’s impact on him. She blind sided him in a way that no one else ever could.

By the time they realized their relationship was forbidden, it was too late. They were both already seeing stars.

Will Ashley knock-out Tristan in the first round? Or, will his mysterious and dark past help them go the distance?

Ringing Her Bell is quick good read. It's told in dual POV of Ashley and Tristan. I love dual POVs because we can get into both characters heads. Tristan is a fighter, teacher, and ex military guy. He screams all alpha. Ashley is a down to earth girl. She is in her last year of college and isn't looking for a relationship. When Tristan and Ashley meet there is an instant connection. Their relationship starts out pretty steamy. They do have an obstacle to overcome in their relationship. I really ...more

This is the the first book by Mitchell Paige who is the son of author, Rochelle Paige and he’s only twenty two years old. Clearly talent runs in the Paige family and I hope Mitchell continues with writing. My only complaint is there was a little too much description during the fights and the MMA jargon was confusing to me. But other than that I think he did a great job for being so young and this being his first book. Tristan Dreth is former Army now an MMA fighter who is about to start a new jo ...more

4 Stars!

This is a debut for Mitchell Paige and he's totally got the spark to do big things. He's also got a way with words that keeps you hooked to the pages and wanting more long after they so turning.

Ringing Her Bell was a sexy, sweet, intense little novella that didn't let go until the pages stopped. And Tristan and Ashley... well they were quite the fierce duo in every way. Everything about them was undeniable and magnetic right from the very start. Their chemistry was smoking hot and Trista

This is the authors debut and I look forward to reading more from him. I loved this story. It's told in dual POV of Ashley and Tristan.

It’s his last weekend before he starts his new job so he decides to go to a local bar and have some fun.

To say that I am impressed this is his first book, is an understatement. Wow, so impressed. This book starts out with Tristan’s time in the military and the things he saw and survived through. Fast forward and it’s his last weekend before he starts his job at the college teaching military history. He also trains and fights MMA as well. So he’s basically gonna be the tough hot teacher😉. He’s out at his best friend Dee’s before heading over to another bar, where he meets Ashley. These two have a g ...more

A knock out of a book (pun intended)

This is the first book by Mitchell Paige and looks to be a series-in-the-making but each book will be stand alone.

The Great:
This is the first male-written romance that isn't a collaboration, that I have read. Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised as I didn't know what to expect. The book starts with a boom that you don't see coming in the prologue and it keeps you guessing a bit throughout the book. The characters were complex enough to get me intrigued by

**I received an ARC of this novel for an honest review**

This was the debut novel for Mitchell Paige and it was very good. I generally don’t expect much from first novels but this one was surprisingly well written. In this novel we meet Tristan who is a history professor that moonlights as a semi-pro MMA fighter. After losing his entire unit in war he needs the solace that fighting provides to him to clear his head. And he achieves it until he meets Ashley. She has broken his concentration and h

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this Writing Family!!

Dreth wanted to wind down after his fight and clear his head before he started the Teaching job he had no choice but to take!! what he found was a perfect release, she left in the early morning, it should have been the right thing but something didn't sit right inside him with the way she left and he wanted more, so he rang the number she wrote on his hand but she never answered, so he resolved to try and forget

This was a great debut book from Mitchell! It was extremely well written, he captured the H and h's personalities, thoughts and feelings really well! I could have done without so much description in scenes, it just kind of got drawn out...but that's just me. Sexy times were also well written and HOT (snausage?!?! lol). I wasn't a big fan of her friend Alexandria and felt much of her scenes in the book were fillers and unnecessary. Maybe I'm a fuddy duddy but I didn't think the bongs and smoking ...more

Great debut!! Tristan & Ashley are quite interesting characters. ; ) Tristan has been forced into a job he's not sure he's right for, and has a dream that's being put to the side because of that job. When he meets Ashley, she turns his world upside down, but in a good way. Instead of being a distraction, she is the cause of his focus sharpening, dreams coming true - and of course lots of sexy time!! Oh, and the epilogue is super!! (You know how much I love a good epilogue or two!)

What a great book for this author’s debut book. The whole story line is very relatable and very passionate. Tristan and Ashley have that connection at the very beginning and there really is no drama or turmoil within their relationship. This couple has this way about them that they know what they want and they go get it. Yes they have to learn to cope that he is a professor and she is the student, but that is cake to what they feel for each other. Ashely brings out the passion to Tristan to keep ...more

Tristan Dreth is a college professor by day and an MMA fighter by night. Heady combination! And believe me, Tristan is sex on a stick. A chance meeting with Ashley Cole and a one-night encounter with her leaves Tristan longing. Ashley is completely shocked when the hottest man she's ever met turns out to be her professor. There's no way these two can stay apart!

Great debut novel by Mitchell Paige! I found the military and fight scenes well done and the bedroom adventures "off the charts" hot! So

Received as an ARC for an honest review.

I have to admit, this story kind of started off kind of slow for me. I didn't know if I was going to like this story or not. As I got into the story the story got better for me. Tristan is a MMA fighter and Ashley is a student at a university. These two had some minor issues they had to deal with. But through it all, they made it through it and come out stronger. While this story had a slow start, the rest of the story was really good and had a nice flow.

Ring her bell: knocked out and knocked up is without a doubt one of the most amazingly written books I have read. Mitchell Paige is an up and coming author who is so amazing that I honestly cannot wait until his next book. The story of Tristan and Ashley is a romance with a great storyline that makes you want more. It’s a story of everlasting love that makes you realize anything can happen when you find the one you are meant to be with. Thank you Rochelle Paige for sending me a copy of your son’ ...more

This is a brilliant breakout novella, it is the perfect combination of sweet and angsty. It hits you with all the feeling you want, I smiled, laughed and felt deeply for the characters. I fell quickly in love with it, I cannot wait to see what comes next! Brilliant Job Mitchell!

It was a good first book. But I almost dnf'd after their initial a encounter. Weed and squeezing her neck during their first encounter (even consensual) turned me off. He turned me off. Couldn't turn it around and skimmed the rest of the book. ...more

Awesome read!!!

Loved this boom!! Connected with all the main characters from the get go!! The instant pull of Ashley and Tristan was great the sparks flew off the pages between these two!! Can’t wait for the next book!!!

Enjoyable quick read!! There is a lot of potential with this author. Dreth & Ashley were lovable, but at times I wasn’t feeling it between them. There were a few parts that were cheesy. This was an intsa-love romance. Was a good read. Told in dual POV.
