My MMA Romance: The Beginning
by Julia Bevan 

We’re in this together now, how can I help my man win the championship?
Jessica Gillian is a working class girl mixed up with the wrong man. He may be rich, but he’s a jerk. She’s ready for a new beginning, but where is it?

Change presents itself in the form of Jimmy Doyle Jr., an up and coming MMA fighter who is long on talent and drive but short on cash. He’s the complete opposite of her old boyfriend and Jess finds herself falling for him completely. They become a team. Working together, can they climb the mountain to success, or are they doomed to disappointment in the cutthroat world of professional MMA?

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

This sports romance is fast-paced, steamy, and entertaining. It's a quick read and as such, the romance moves quickly, but it's not quite instalove - pretty darn quick love, but not instant. Jimmy is a bit of a contradiction with his shy approach to women and tough as nails determination when it comes to fighting. He's also absolutely lovable, and he and Jessica fit so well together. Our angst comes by way of an ex who is a jerk in every sense of the word, plus a bit of betrayal that I certainly didn't see coming. Even so, the angst level isn't over the top, and we even get some MMA action as Jimmy works to realize his dream while he also make time to fall for Jessica. All in all, the romance is a good mix of sweet and sexy, and we get the added bonus of some MMA excitement.
