Every fighter has a weakness…
Devi Dalton won’t let anyone hold her back. With the help of her friends, she’s taken control of her future and traded her messed-up family life for a new job in Manhattan. Her only obstacle? Ben Winslow, the sexy friend she’s desperately trying to resist. If she’s going to succeed, she can’t afford to be distracted, no matter how hot the chemistry burns between them.
Cage fighter Ben spent six months trying to convince Devi to take a chance on a relationship. Now that they’ve reunited in New York, he’s not letting her push him away again. They’re more than friends always have been and he’ll do whatever it takes to prove it to her. First, he has a few demons of his own to slay…one of which could ruin his chances with her for forever.
But every fighter has a weakness. Ben’s is Devi. And this time, she’ll need more than just her favorite “Fearless Red” lipstick to protect her heart if she lets him in…
I received this e-arc copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
“That first day we met, when I climbed in the limo on the way to the competition, and you moved to sit next to me…do you remember?”
“Umhmm,” I respond.
“In that moment, the thought flashed through my mind: I could sit next to this girl for the rest of my life. From that day on, I have never wanted anything else than to have you beside me.”–BEN
Fearless by Shae Ross was an enjoyable, light read indeed. The story was predictable but still it managed to have an “extra-ordinary” content that will pop-out to the story. But, from the start until the end of the story I was waiting for a bomb to happen to make the story more enjoyable. The concept was good, yes it was. But as I said, it was vey predictable. You will know what will happen to both the characters and tadah happy ending!
For the characters of the story, it was great to have an alternative point of view of Devin and Ben. The readers will know both character traits of them. For Devin, a fearless woman yet with weaknesses when it comes to the one she loved and her obligations. It was annoying at first when it comes to her weaknesses but it was good to develop her character in this story which was a two thumbs up for me. While Ben, umm. I like him in this story,very sweet and sexy inside and out of his big muscles. 😛
All in all I was satisfied, but I wanted more from this story. If you want a new adult, yet a light read, I would recommend this. 3.5 stars for it.
