Olivia James has never been one to walk on the wild side, at least not until she meets Seth Marc—a cocky, sexy fighter at her father’s gym. He’s infuriating, nauseatingly addictive and she just can’t seem to shake him. He’s only been in town a short while and his name is already on everyone’s lips. He’s the kind of guy moms’ warn their daughters about—the kind that leaves a trail of shattered hearts behind him and he has Olivia in his sights. Olivia has never met anyone as confusing as Seth and his hot and cold attitude constantly sends her reeling. She’s never wanted anyone’s touch so badly in her life, but having recently come out of a long term relationship diving into another is something she’d prefer to avoid. Determined for his touch, but not to let him under her skin, Olivia embarks on the most thrilling ride of her life
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. It’s safe to say ‘Consumed’ consumed me! I loved the story line and learning more about the MMA, which I didn’t know anything about. Olivia’s internal struggle with herself and those around her makes her such a likeable main character. And Seth easily was my favorite part about the story. I found myself wishing halfway thru that the author had done every other chapter from the other’s persceptive. I really enjoyed the epilogue just because it was told from Seth’s point of view. The plot had similarities to other’s in it’s genre, but adding in the MMA fighting scene made it stand out. This 4 star book helped me getting away to a different world which made me love it even more, xo!
