I liked this story and it kept my interest because it was outside of the norm, but it was completely unbelievable. If you’re a reader who can suspend belief and just get lost in a story, you may enjoy it for the fairytale type of romance offered up. However, if you’re a stickler for details and reality-based consequences, you’ll want to avoid this one because there aren’t any real-world repercussions for the choices made by these characters.

Every moment I endured in my life led me to the wonderful man I loved...

Faded is the first book that I have read by M.A. Lee and I enjoyed it. The story-line was well developed, if a bit predictable, and the characters had some depth to them.
Lizzie and Spencer both have things in their past that they are trying to keep hidden and ignored. But sometimes the past comes back to the present and you have to deal with it in order to actually put it in the past for good. There are a few more erotic sce

This is a pretty quick read, only taking a couple of hours but it’s an enjoyable one. The two main characters weren’t looking for a relationship, but they found each other, and their chemistry was off the charts. Both characters have baggage that they need to work through and there are lots of twists and turns in this story. There are some steamy scenes also. It’s my first time reading this author, and this is also a new series, I’m looking forward to reading more in this series as it promises t ...more

Loved this steamy romance. Lizzie and Spencer are electric. This isn't just a great romance read. There is suspense, secrets and lots to keep the reader guessing. It is a short read and I read it in one sitting. That was mostly due to not being able to put it down. I love a strong female lead and man that wants to protect her. The fact that I love an MMA fighter helped too. This story kept me guessing and falling in love with characters from the start. I can't wait for more in this series!

I enjoyed this steamy romance. It is very well written with a great storyline and flows nicely. The characters are well developed and very relatable. Lizzie and Spencer have a lot in common and the chemistry between them is very steamy. This is a short read, perfect for a relaxing afternoon in the sun.
