This is a familar story - very alpha male with feisty heroine. Why choose this one over all the other available? I'll give you three reasons:

(1) the most important one, author knows how to write a good story and the characters stand out despite them being the same "types" as a lot of other books;
(2) the book was worth time and money spent reading it; and
(3) the relationship was hot.

Another huge plus is that although it is the first in a series (with the second book due in December 2013); happily, this book is a stand alone story with no cliff hanger ending. There are some minor editing issues but nothing to ruin the story.

"What are you thinking?" She asks me, searching my eyes. If I press harder against her, she'll be able to feel me and put two and two together. Instead, I smile. "It isn't very PG, I'll tell you that." - Lol!! So naughty Seth!! ;)

The good: Solid, intriguing, and engaging read! The story line is intriguing, the characters are likable, and there was just enough "smutt" to keep me sated. ;)

The bad: Had some typical elements that we come across in reads: good girl meets bad boy; bad boy thinks he's not good enough for whatever reason; some pushing and pulling going on between them; characters give in to their attraction; some drama occurs; they live happily ever after.

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEW:

"Consumed" was a lovely, lovely read to pass the time. I swear, whenever I had free time I would grab my e-reader in between my babysitting gig and would sneak away to read me some more of Seth Marc!! I was that obsessed with finishing this! lol.

I also appreciated the fact that "Consumed" wasn't all about sex and had kept this part of Seth and Olivia's relationship steamy yet tasteful. Sometimes in these kinds of reads that's all I come across and it's annoying and redundant at times. Makes me skim or skip over a lot of the sex/love scenes which thankfully never happened in this book!!

SO, MY VERDICT:

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND "Consumed" for those of you looking for a hot, MMA fighter, with a heart of gold!

"Consumed" will literally consume your life for a couple of hours. It was that addictive for me. I'm not saying that it's completely mind-blowing and life changing but a couple parts were it was really touching and made you think/re-evaluate your life and it's priorities.

I'm really hoping that Ms.

This story was a complete mash-up of two books: Real by Katy Evans and Against the Ropes by Sarah Castille. I was so excited to read this book for a couple of reasons. Mostly I wanted to read this because I love stories about MMA fighters, but I also noticed that this book was over 400 pages. I get bored with books that barely hit the 200 page mark and then I'm left with the feeling that it didn't deliver. This story sounded hot and had great Goodread and Amazon reviews but after reading it I have no clue why.

Consumed is about a young woman named Olivia who sees a super-hot MMA fighter working out at her dad's gym and falls head over vagina for him. Olivia is just out of a 6 year relationship with her cheating boyfriend when she meets relationship-phobic Seth Marc.

Olivia drove me nuts. We open up with her getting stood up by her lame-cheating-a$$ boyfriend for like the 4th time in as many months. She finally decides she deserves better and kicks him to the curb. What kills me is that it took her 4 years (they were together 2 when he started cheating) to realize this. He cheated over and over and she just kept taking him back. I can't handle women who have zero respect for themselves. THEN once Olivia leaves him she wants to immediately jump into something with Seth. Seth turns her down for a one night stand... and then she decides she doesn't want casual she wants to make it official. Seriously! You let someone walk all over you for 6 years and you wait a week before you are demanding commitments from someone new? I just didn't get what was going on inside her damn head.

Seth contradicted himself the whole book. He didn't do relationships... until he met her. He didn't want to define anything... then he did. He wasn't ready to open up to anyone... then he did.

When I purchased Consumed there were only five and four star reviews doting on how amazing this book was compared to others like it. I paid the fee and began to read, at first I liked the story. I enjoyed Seth and the whole MMA aspect of it but then, it started going downhill for me and fast. I'm not sure if it was the disconnect with the characters, even at the end I didn't really feel like I knew them. Or if it was that Olivia seemed flighty to me, she had a job but was always calling off from it, not going in or slacking while she was there, but yeah I lost interest about half through and then had to struggle through the rest simply because I paid for as much for it as I did.

If you really want to read this wait until its $.99 or free.
