A Joyfully Jay review.

5 stars


Unbroken left me speechless. I read it straight through until it was finished (at 3:30 am), and when I got to the end, I realized I wasn’t breathing. It was so amazing, I’d sucked in my breath and held it until the final period.

I feel as if Unbroken is a roller coaster ride. It’s fast paced, exciting, and a little nerve wracking. The author has a great writing style. The story just flowed and there were no dull spots. The action grows and grows until the incredible

Wow! I’m loving this series! I don’t want to say much to give spoilers but I will say, this book is unbelievably a great book with some great fighting. I love most of the characters & the ones I don’t like, it’s with great reason. This book will break your heart & put it back together.

When I finished this book, all I wanted to do was thank Aaron L. Speer for delivering this magnificent story and taking the risk to step outside the industry standards and expectations, to offer us something DIFFERENT.

I dont want to give too much away of the story because I believe the best way to embrace this work of art is to dive right in and let go of all your preconceived expectations, to just follow Aaron in this... incredible journey.

Yes... I want to thank Aaron. Thank him for listening

I have no idea why I haven't reviewed this yet because I loved everything Mr Speer did with this book.
The love, the drama, the fighting.
The heartache, the forgiveness, the acceptance.

This isn't your typical fighter story. This isn't your typical romance. Aaron Speer tackles some seriously tough issues in this book, but he does it with finesse.

This is Mr. Speer at his finest.

I want more stories!

Although this may be standalone book, and technically you don't HAVE to read Undisputed,you'd be missing out if you choose not too. This book is completely different from what you THINK it's gonna be about. You've read the blurb, and possibly a few of the reviews. So your interested. Ok. Well then great. Start reading. But, for those of you that are quote, still on the fence,the undecided, let me make it easier for you. This book is NOT your usual typical romance story. There

This book is about Ava. In the beginning of this book Ava is 17 years old and just finding her way. She is in a relationship with Jasmine, the daughter of her parents best friends. After they are caught together everything falls apart. Her mother is extremely homophobic. I loved this book. But hated to see what she had to go face. Thankfully she had her own made family to back her up in most everything. It makes me sad to say it was because of her sexual orientation. This book isn

I dove into Unbroken without a clue as I had no expectation other than a foray into the wild world of MMA, of which I am a huge fan. Speer grabbed me by the throat and threw me to the mat as I felt all the ways for Ava, watching her repeatedly knocked down by life, only to rise, each time stronger than the last. Speer writes the universal need for unconditional love from a deep place that anyone can identify, but also from a female perspective that is eminently relatable and at the same time ins ...more

There are very few books that have left me feeling as Unbroken did. This is not a book to race through, frantically turning pages to see what's next. Instead this is a book that you really need to take your time with, to spend as much time as humanly possible on every page before moving to the next.
Ava's story is thought provoking, an emotionally charged read and a conversation starter. The author has invited us into a world, where many readers will have strong reactions. I know I certainly did!

Seriously... wow 😮

That was my reaction from page one. Then I read chapter one, and I was even more stunned. I actually ended up going back and rereading it to see if I just read what I thought I did.

Speer really knocked me on my butt with this one.

He gave me characters I hated, like passionately hated (the mother 🤬)

Then he gave me characters I fell in love (Ava’s saviours)

Then on top of that, he tossed in a side of MMA, a few favourites from Undisputed (book 1) and a heroine who’d been dragge

Speer has done it again, with this hard-hitting MMA story. This book brings you strong women, controversial subject matter and all the feels. The way the author handles the sensitive subjects while not shying away from them is perfect and the blow by blow action in the cage makes you feel like your right there getting front row seats to all the blood and gore that comes from an MMA cage fight. This might just be my favorite MMA book yet.
This is book 2 in the series but can be read as a standalo

The author took a subject that some may see as by some as a taboo subject, created as storyline that hooks you in page after page. You go on an emotional journey with Ava, although it’s a book about MMA fighting it’s also about Ava, who no matter how much life keeps getting her down, she struggles but keeps fighting to come out on the other side winning.
Although the story is focused mainly on Ava, as always there is those side characters steal the show, that you love, the boys, Chris and Ruben,

An outstanding, mind blowing, tidal waves of emotions story that broke me and put me back together again!!!! OMFG Aaron, I wasn’t sure that you could write a second MMA story that even compared to how much I loved Undisputed but here I am at a compete and utter loss for words!!! It is AMAZING!!!! Unbroken hit me like a ton of bricks from the very first chapter and kept me guessing till the very end. I was so overwhelmed with love for Ava and all she has been through and endured. Yet, she was so ...more

If you’ve read the first book and loved it, know that this story is very different. You’ll still love it, but your heart will go through the wringer in so many different ways with this one. Anger at what Ava goes through. Frustration for Jasmine and her situation. A few twitchy moments where you can’t believe what the characters have to endure but it all flows so well. Tension and suspense during fight times. Excitement and relief. Maybe a few tears. Love for Ava’s family of Ruben and Chris. SO. ...more

I went into this book with an open mind and was not disappointed. It took me way longer to read than the norm but a lot of the subject matter brought forth some unresolved issues of my own and had me in tears. So I took my time with reading and really got to understand the determination and strength of Ava.

Now there was a bit of a I guess language barrier as I'm from the States and Aussie slang and terms are a bit lost on me but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Ava had to endure ridicule and shame for

I went into this book expecting a typical MMA romance but that was not the case as all.
Unbroken took hold of my heart early on and I laughed and shed a few tears while reading Ava’s story.

Ava goes through hell and back over and over again, yet she will not give up. No matter what happens or how bad it gets she is absolutely unstoppable, especially with “ her boys” by her side.

Her heart and strength to continue even in the worse of times hit close to home for me. Her ability to not back

Speerzie knows how to gently pound emotion into every part of a story. It's what makes you feel like you're intimately involved in what's going on. Ava is the perfect broken heroine with her two guardian angels. The ups and downs she has to go through to find herself will resonate with all of us who have struggled with family issues and searching for our place in the world. I love how there are so many plot points left unresolved, but by no means is there a cliffhanger at the end. There are also ...more

Wow! I'm in awe of this author, this book, this story! There are so many outstanding details that make this story unforgettable for me. The writing alone was exceptional, distinct, unique, and kept me hooked onto every last word. This is a phenomenal story about MMA fighters and there are many great details about the sport and it is action packed. Ava's strength and determination touched me on many levels and she's a very inspiring character, with courage and perseverance. I found this story to ...more

This was SO MUCH more than just a MMA book for me. As a mother of a teenage daughter who is part of the LGBTQ community, this book made me have all the feels. It made me see the daily ridicule and fear my child faces every day but it also helped me see ways that I can help her over come those.
This is a fast paced, page turning book that will have your attention from the very begining. It is full of love and heart wrenching emotions that will put your heart through the wringer but it is soooo wo

Let me start off by saying truly one of the best MMA books I have ever read. Ava is the most determined and strongest female character I have seen in a long time. No matter what horrible adversity she faces she keeps pushing forward. She may get beaten down but she fights her way back up. The dynamic between her, Reuben and Chris is unlike any I have seen before. I cried, I laughed and I cursed Aaron L Speer for many things in this story. It is one for all the feels. A true must read !

“Life always puts us down. We choose how we get back up, if we get back up at all. Ava chose to get up with a shrug and a smile. Life hit hard, but she'd been hit harder. And, though wobbly, she still stood.”

Unbroken is the second installment to the extraordinary Undisputed 2 Book Series! This novel has so many FEELS in the middle of a fast-paced, action-packed gem of a story where the author has opened the door to an emotionally charged world, one that focuses heavily on the struggles one faces

Unbroken - Undisputed Book 2 - Aaron L Speer

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Singularly one of the best books I’ve ever read!!

Though this story is classically in the MMA genre, Aaron L Speer has also delivered an incredibly powerful and gut wrenching story of love, compassion, understanding and sheer determination.

Ava Beckinsale knows what she wants. Forthright and brash in her opinion, she’s pushed to breaking by her family and gives in to their twisted ideals. Until the day she realises that their ideals are not who she

Speer wrote it? Sold!
I've said it before and I'll keep on saying it: Speer is a natural storyteller with the talent to hook you from the first word. But he doesn't rest on his laurels. He's a definite one-click for me because of it. Each book gets better, and Ava's story is no different. I've come to expect him to make me a fan of genres I normally don't gravitate towards. PNRs, thrillers, and now sports. The commentaries I FLOVED in the first Undisputed book are back and better than ever. And w

This story of MMA fighters has all the detail and action that a fan of the subject will enjoy. It is a well-paced, can't put it down drama that begins fast and stays engaging. But soon into reading, you will discover that it is so much more. The main character not only wishes to win at the sport but to repair a broken life. The reasons I will not speak of other than to say that some will find it controversial. I have read all of Author Speer's books because he is a consummate storyteller who doe ...more

I'm so hooked on Aaron L Speer's books.
Unbroken is Ava's story. It's a sports book. But it leaves others in the shade.
Once I started reading I couldn't put the book down. At times it's heart-breaking, it made me feel so sad, then others, I was so caught up in Ava's training and the positive things that started happening for her when she left the parental home, that I sat with a silly smile on my face.
Despite the setbacks she suffered, she never gave up and worked with dedication to realise her d

I love writing adult paranormal fiction. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts... oh my. I've been writing since I was 11 but I've always been a dreamer... often getting caught staring off into space as I created stories in my mind.
