Blodeuedd's Monday Review: Strong Hold by Sarah Castille

My thoughts:
That blurb is...not quite right. Sure it is right, and still not right. Let me begin.

Zach is looking for a new star, that is right. He was a winner himself, and then he quit. He seems like a good guy, until he is around Shayla. I mean wow, can you spell Alpha!? He gets really protective and I really wish he was not 5 years older cos...yeah something gets weird when you think too long about it. Still, he means well and really really really loves her.

Shayla was a ballerina and now she is a fighter with scars. And she really wants to take it to the next level, but it's hard to get there.  I liked her, she picked herself up again and got strong (kick-ass strong!) Though she really should not blame some things on Zach, you are your own woman!

They meet and he decides to stay around cos hello! Destiny right there!

The Redemption gang was great. They truly are a family and take care of each other. I wish some did not have names like JR Ward cos it made me cringe.

The book is about these two trying to get over hurts and deal with their own shit in the past. Plus there is lot of fighting and fight talk. It's about MMA after all.

Love, passion and throwing your hat in the ring and going for it. I enjoyed it.

Narrator: Josh and Chandra Skyye
I have heard Chandra before and I do enjoy her voice. She did her chapters well with voices and range.
Josh was new to me, but he did his Zach chapters well too. A pleasant voice.

Right, so this is more Shayla's book and it really should be her there

Fight promoter Zack Grayson is on the prowl for a rising star. As the top recruiter of a prestigious MMA promotion company, he wants to take someone where he will never be able to go again: the top of the professional league. He didn't expect that someone to be the woman he loved . . . and left. Top-ranked MMA amateur fighter Shayla "Shilla the Killa" Tanner built walls around her heart when Zack left her seven years ago-and again when her husband turned violent. Now, seeing Zack is nearly enough to send those walls crumbling. But she can't risk the exposure of the limelight, and she definitely can't risk another heartbreak. As Shayla and Zack grow closer, though, business turns personal. And once their passion unleashes, there's no going back . . .

One day I had a book with a completely different synopsis. It was surprising to have such a mistake. Only the names were right.
