She finds herself sucked in by his own intriguing past. But everything changes when Dylan Priestley, the gorgeous boy who broke her heart and shattered her faith in friendship and love, suddenly shows up in her life again while back home on a visit.

Despite the pain Dylan’s caused her, Lexi is once again drawn to the blue-eyed-boy-next-door. Will Lexi choose the man who seems perfect but hides a dark side or the boy who smashed her heart into pieces so many years ago?

Alpha Fighter by Ava Ashley
(The Alpha Fighter Series #1)
Publication date: December 15th 2014
Genres: New Adult, RomanceSynopsis:

The first part of Alpha Fighter, a two-part series from Amazon bestselling author, Ava Ashley.

Savannah Santos is on the run, almost out of options and cash. The daughter of a motorcycle club king, she fled everything she ever knew to get out of an arranged marriage to a rival club’s prince. Her plan is to follow her career dreams and not endanger anyone by getting too close. But she wasn’t expecting her new roommate to be her dream guy.

For Cooper Quin, being any girl’s dream man, is nothing new, but he’s determined to stay exactly that: a dream. His focus is on killing it in the brutal MMA ring. A former Navy SEAL with a dark past of pain and betrayal, falling in love is the last thing he intends to do. But his sexy new roommate is nothing like one of his usual one-night stands. With her, it feels safe to let his guard down.

Cooper knows a little about running from the past; Savannah’s is still looking for her. He can’t leave her alone, but pursuing her might be the MMA fighter’s undoing. She knows she can’t stay forever—not with two outlaw gangs searching everywhere to bring her back.

AUTHOR BIO:

Amazon bestselling author Ava Ashley may look like the girl next door, but her steamy romances reveal a very naughty side. Raised in small town Ohio and now living in Homer, Alaska it’s amazing that she hasn’t increased the average temperature in her area of the state with her steamy writing. And she loves reading new adult romance novels as much as she enjoys writing them.Ava likes spending time outdoors and does a lot of hiking and cycling with her husband and four children. When she can get away on her own, she’ll often take pen and paper along, find a secluded spot and let the environment inspire her. Of course, that inspiration frequently results in characters tearing each other’s clothes off, but you would expect nothing less from a romance writer.Author links:

Review:

Friends with Benefits…. small town Texas girl, Charlotte is starting over. Her husband died in a car accident more than a year ago and she is finally going to explore a career in photography, something she always wanted to do.  When an old friend offered to exhibit her work in his gallery she travels to NY.  She is overwhelmed when she gets there but then to run into her old friend with benefits from college, now what?

Jacob, aka friend with benefits, a professor here in NY learns of her arrival. He was in love with her and never told her. Jacob allowed her to marry someone else and has regretted it ever since.

Definitely a whirl wind of emotion from beginning to end. You wanted to cry because of lost love and hate because of jealousy and what that can do. Lastly we laugh because of a piece of sushi. The minutes to the ball dropping, wow. You just need to read to find out why.   Adrienne really made you think about how short life truly is.

This maybe a short story but it does leave you satisfied to the end.
