Knocked Out by Ty Langston
Fresh out of Grad School, Hayley Monroe gets the chance of a lifetime when her boss gives her the opportunity to produce and host a reality series on finding MMA’s “Next Great Hope”.
Enter former MMA contender Evan Bates. His sudden re-appearance into the sport after a mysterious five year absence not only raises eyebrows, but also temps both in and out of the Octagon.
Can Hayley keep everything in check? Or will she be Knocked Out?
This was an okay novella. There was a lot that could've been done with this story that just didn't come together. There just wasn't time in the few pages the story was given to develop the characters and dive into the behind-the-scenes of filming a tv show, the other contestants and the evolution of the love story. I appreciated the overall concept of the book but it did lack details, you know, the meat of the story. I wanted to know more about the competition since that's what set the book apart from other MMA romances. Then there were stretches of time glossed over without acknowledgement of the passing of time, almost as if the author was in a hurry to complete the book. I guess I wanted to be a part of his journey instead of reading about his journey.
Anyway, this was okay but nothing standout. There's a lot of potential for a fabulous full-length novel.
