You think this is a love story. You’re wrong. It’s a massacre.
A massacre of who I think I am,
where I come from,
and who I thought I’d have a future with.
One wouldn't have me.
The other couldn't.
Both stole my heart.
You think you know me. You have no idea.
That being said I loved No Mercy, Gabriel and Frankie were amazing characters, but Rowdy played a really important part in the end of their story.
These three characters will be forever connected. Rowdy was Frankie's Knight when she felt she had nothing he was ready to give her everything because of there intense connection and trust in each other. A ...more

I couldn't help but love Gabriel in No Mercy, but Rowdy was the one that stole my heart away, and I just couldn't wait for him to get his so well deserved HEA, and this book gave me everything I needed.
Rowdy is a special book. It beautifully balances the dark and light, dealing with twisted and heart shattering subjects with such care and finesse, like holding a butterfly in your palm.
It's so surprisingly deep with such emotionally developed characters - especi ...more

Rowdy and Reese are just downright amazing and I loved everything about this story. It was serious, but with plenty of fun wit and emotional times included. I cannot recommend it enough and don't have enough words to tell you how I felt while readi ...more
The author weaves a heartfelt and steamy romance that has humor and heartbreak. Reese is a woman who has suffered a lot in her young life and suffers from PTSD as a result. Rowdy is one of the few people she allows to touch her.
This story tugged at my heartstrings as their love story unfolded. Both have their own demons though Reese’s is more cause for alarm. But they overcome many obstacles to ob ...more
What can I say but WOW!
After reading Book 1- No Mercy, I was not prepared for this one.
In the beginning I was like oh no it's going to happen again. I was wrong, but there was so many references to Frankie and the love they have for each other it made my suspicious mind wander.
Reese and Rowdy have their fair share of challenges growing up.
This is heartwarming and angsty all in one.
Well done D.M. Davis ...more
Rowdy and his Kitten story is one that grabs you from the beginning and keeps you holding on. Rowdy is a protective and very loving man with a lot of demons. Reese is a shy, scared woman with even more demons. Getting the demons out and being able to love each other fully is a bigger battle than Rowdy faces in the octagon! If you read No Mercy first you will fall even more in love with Gabriel in Rowdy also!
Reviewed thru Kindle Unlimited...What a break your heart, make you mad, cry your eyes out, emotional love story that will leave your heart floundering that Reese could be so strong. Rowdy and Reese have that chance of a lifetime in being soul mates. But can they stand the test of confronting the monster that has Reese scared for her life? I loved this book!❤❤❤❤❤
Rowdy's torn between two women - one is the woman he has been there for all these months, as a friend, and more if she had ever let him, the other is Gabriel's innocent sister, Reese, the woman who really holds his interest. But it's when Frankie tells him herself that they both know she's not his ONE and to go after Reese that Rowdy finally realizes where his real interest lies. Now the question is, will Reese let him into her heart where he really wants? Or is she far too dam ...more
Well it finally arrived and it did not disappoint. You kind of have to read No Mercy to be able to jump into this one as Rowdy’s story is tightly intertwined with the second half of No Mercy and picks up right after that story ends. So let’s get right into it, shall we?
To start off, the first few chapters kind of gave me whiplash because it ...more

Rowdy is the second book in the Black Ops MMA series and tells the story of Reese and Rowdy.
I fell in love with Rowdy in No Mercy, the first book in the Black Ops MMA series, and I was so excited to read his story. I think that Rowdy is a bit of a heavier read because it talks about PTSD and about child abuse/assault. I wish there was a trigger...more
Rowdy (Black Ops MMA Book 2) by D. M. Davis is a very well written book with some serious backstory. Rowdy is just about the sweetest MMA you might ever read about. I fell a little bit for this character in No Mercy, but in his own book, simply melted. He’s definitely got a sweet side, but in the octagon, he’s all darkness. Reese is just as sweet even while battling demons. Despite her trauma, she is not afraid of Rowdy, her Shadow. And despite his ...more
