4/5 Review: Fighting the Fall by Jennifer Snow




MMA fighters go Beyond the Cage in the new series by the author of Breaking Her Rules. This time, it’ll take some fancy footwork for a gym owner to keep from falling in love…
Hollywood actress Parker Hamilton will do anything to get back in the spotlight. Since breaking up with one of the industry’s most successful directors, she’s been in a string of box office busts. Now, she’s found the role of a lifetime in a film about a female MMA fighter and she knows exactly who to ask for help learning the ropes…

When Tyson Reed sees a blonde bombshell walk into his gym looking for training, he wants to refuse. He knows her type and he doesn’t need any unwanted distractions while preparing for his upcoming title fight. But if he can’t pay off his brother’s debts, Tyson could lose his gym… and the reputation his family has had in the MMA world for three generations.

Tyson never thought he’d be going one-on-one with a spoiled, out-of-shape Hollywood actress. But this is one bout he just may not win—or want to…

**********

Actress, Parker Hamilton, was trying to save her career.  After a break up with her ex, who happens to be a director, manuscripts are arriving less and less.  She is so moved and determined to get the lead in a new film after reading a brilliant script about a female MMA fighter.  She is gorgeous but does she have a fighter’s build?  No!  She needs to get into shape and fast for the auditions.  She arrives at Punisher Athletics Gym in hopes that world champion Tyson Reed can train her.
Gym owner and MMA champion, Tyson Reed has a lot on his plate; running a gym, training to defend his title, dealing with a drug addict older brother, trying to please his father, and falling hard for the actress.  He wasn’t supposed to be a relationship type of guy.  What was it about Parker that had him wanting more?  He was out of his mind with everything going on around him. 
A heated relationship starts between the two and is full of passion, love, insecurities, and miscommunications.  That is one recipe for heartaches all around.  I am so in love with this couple.  Their individual strengths and vulnerabilities make this story both great to read and emotional.  It is a battle of love that will definitely have you falling.  Jennifer Snow did wonders with this book.  I can’t wait to read more of her books.  Her ability to get the story both detailed and unrushed is simply amazing.
