I know this is only book two, but this is quickly becoming a favorite series of mine for SO many reasons! The BTU crew is so awesome and like a giant family, it’s infectious!!!
So when I heard the story was about boxing I had been slightly confused since we had just come from Hockey, but we really get the best of both worlds in this book! Then of course we have the feisty Rocky, what isn’t to love about her? These two had this insane dynamic. Rocky was someone who was super aware of who she was and knew what she was doing. I really loved how she not only knew the sport, but knew how to help with it. She is like the MMA guru! Then of course we have Gage, a UFC Champ!!!!!!!! How exciting is that???? When Gage and Rocky met, I felt just as star struck and he’s a fictional character!! (Side note: their “meet cute” was AWESOME, now that I know that it’s a thing LOL). I LOVED Gage SOOOO much and I loved how he fit right in wth the BTU Alum. I thought it was pretty genius to bring Gage in as an introvert of sorts and totally get melted into this crew. The way they lived and worked together, it was so much fun. They truly are one big family.
Now we really gotta talk about the slow burn we got here. There were SO MANY SPARKS between Gage and Rocky for so long. It was a super slow burn, and you wanted to cheer, hoop and holler by the time they finally got together! Made the anticipation sooo worth it! There was also a lot of drama that came with their relationship and that drama was so awesome. It added this extra element to the book that gave it a slight edge. There was a lot of drama surrounding Gage in general though, it made for some amazing reading.
I know I’ve talked to much about family in this, but the real family members in this story were so great! I LOVED how close Vinny and Rocky were, and then you add in Wyatt and Beth for Gage, it was so heartwarming! I loved that everyone melded together so well! I think that is what draws me the most to this series. The closeness of these friends is something that everyone wants to have! We get to live it through these amazing characters! I can’t wait to see where this goes and who comes next. There’s so many amazing people and I really want this series to never end!!
