Description from the publisher:
Colt McClure is a rising MMA fighter out to prove that he has what it takes to be a champion. Jo is on the run from her one terrible mistake. When Colt drags Jo from a brawl with street thugs, he recognizes her potential as a female fighter. But as they begin her training, their desire for each other sparks a love affair that could jeopardize them both. Uncaged Love is a five-part series.
This is the first release in a serial story being meted out in the same fashion in which Stephen King originally released THE GREEN MILE. I was one of the intrepid fans stalking the book store every few weeks for that series and am just as eagerly chasing this series.
This is a perfectly paced contemporary romance centered on a gym where Colt McClure, son of the famous traditional boxer “The Cure” McClure, is training in MMA. While intervening for Jo when she is being attacked on the streets near the gym, he sees a natural, raw talent in the struggling-to-survive girl and puts in a good word for her at the gym, securing a job for her. Sparks fly around the little hurricane that is Jo’s temper, lightning quick and dangerous.
I cannot wait to find out what happens next. What is the story between Colt and Brittany? Can Colt and Jo embrace the desires that surround them in the gym and in each other?
As a martial artist, myself, I was impressed with the descriptions of the fights as given. I felt myself moving to the instructions, facing off with friend and foe, and itching to resume my own workouts. I also remember, very well, the humiliation and pain of the punch that made it through my defense. Very well done, J.J. Knight!
