I've been a fan of the No Rival Series from its beginning. The complex characters, intense emotions and smoking hot erotica never fails to entertain. The mixture of social classes, racial backgrounds and both M/M and M/F pairings in each book is as varied as real life.

The world of MMA is a vicious mistress. Rise to the top and everyone knows your name. Fall from grace, and no one will remember your name by the end of the week. Former champion. With his personal life a hot mess, Terry Richards is happy to live in the shadows and has no desire to regain his former fame. Focused on his Veteran Rehabilitation center, the thought of training the next generation of fighters hasn't crossed his mind, but then he meets Brian.

Terry can't resist a challenge. Helping the injured Brian regain his former fire is exactly the distraction Terry needs, and the fact that the sexual chemistry between them sparks like a live wire doesn't hurt either.

Emotionally guarded, Brian keeps himself apart from the other fighters, but the time Terry and Brian spend together begins to crumble the walls around their hearts. When Brian is offered the opportunity of a lifetime, Terry encourages him to chase his dream, but not everything is as it seems, and the secrets that lie between them are a darkness that threatens their fragile new bond.

UNATTAINABLE is an emotionally wrenching journey that completely blew me away. I started reading with high expectations, but the impact of this powerfully written story packs the weight of a Strikeforce knockout. So much more than a sports erotica. I would recommend UNATTAINABLE to anyone who is looking for a dramatic story with passion, romance, action and adventure. Living life to the fullest is only possible when you open yourself to the lessons that are there to be learned.
