At one point we understand that the h is raped by her stalker ex, thankfully it is not graphically written about. What I didn't like is that it is dealt with so matter of factly. I don't like the tendency of NA authors to include rape in their stories because I don't think they deal with the emotional fall out that would inevitably come afterwards. For me the h 'recovered' from the incident without any major repercussions or emotional trauma. It didn't work for me and I wish she'd rather left it out that treat it so 'lightly'.
I'd be tempted to read another in this series since I know her writing definitely improved after this book.
I enjoyed Van & Dani & their relationship. My only real annoyance was the SOB that made no sense. It & the getting back together part happened super quick & I just didn't feel like it "fit." And there were a couple loose ends left at the conclusion of the story. But I'm diving right into book 2, so maybe those questions will be answered w/ Cole's book. We'll see!
All in all, it turned into a 5 star read. : )
I have to say that this started off with Van rescuing Dani one night from her abusive ex-boyfriend. He takes her home because she now has no where to go since she broke up with Brian. Van and Dani spend the night together and things swiftly become more. There wasn't any drama with Dani and Van as a couple what brought the drama was Dani's ex. Things with him spiral outta control. There were many twist and turns. POV swiftly changed from one sentence to the next.
Overall I really enjoyed this book. There were some unanswered questions and one time there was a scene change that happened that left me kinds confused. Example.. Dani is in a bad situation and needs help. Next thing you know its Van coming home to an empty apartment and Dani has moved out. She is two hours away with her parents now. Yes you find out what happened, but it was kinda strange. I was beyond surprised when I found out who the killer was though. I was so wrong.
The plot was full of drama, angst, and TWISTS. Oh my God. I swear this book could not have more twists because it just wasn't possible!!! I was freaking out throughout the entire book!!! Talk about a PAGE TURNER! I felt like I could not read fast enough! There was also a lot of romance and passion throughout the whole story line...even some humor.
"...she flirted with her body, barely brushing his chest with hers.
He smiled. "Do your friends want to play?" He asked, making no effort to look away from her breasts as they taunted him.
She didn't miss a beat. "Do yours?"
He cocked an eyebrow. "Is that even a question?"
She kept eye contact when she replied. "You've got a giant cucumber in your pants."
"Do you want it in yours?"
"I can think of something else that would make me feel even better."
She raised her eyebrows. "Oh?"
With a nod he gave her a wicked smile. "Yeah. It's warm...and it feels really good when I'm in it...and I love how it's always wet for me..."
"You think so, huh?" she smirked.
"Well yeah. A shower is usually wet when I--"
She slugged him in the shoulder and he laughed out loud.
Donovan Kemp ("Van") and Danielle Martin ("Dani") are just a perfect fit together. They accept each other just as they are.. baggage and everything. Loved them!
"I want to protect you because I love you, Dani. I mean... I've fallen in love with you."
"The Fighter's Block" is about SO much more than just the HOT romance between Van and Dani. There's a mystery that develops throughout the book, so you need to pay attetion to the details. Though it's safe to say, you'll probably NOT guess "who did what" at the end. Yep.. I was SO SURE I knew and NOOOOOOOPEEEEEEEEE!! Because guess what? Welcome another teeny tiny TWIST! *wink* There were A LOT of characters in this book and since the story was narrated in 3rd person POV, you get the full experience! HUGE PLUS!
This is the type of book that makes your heart beat faster anticipating "what will happen next". *sigh* Aren't those just the BEST type of books??? GREAT debut novel!!! I highly recommend it!!!
"I love you Donovan Kemp. You are my entire world. I wouldn't change any part of you."
