The plot of this book was laughable and the characters were kind of horrible. Jonah starts out as a total misogynist whose only use for women is sex. In the beginning, I found him disgusting - seriously, he claims he never hits the same "honeypot" twice and admits freely that he only performs "in and out operations." I don't require romance to be PC but personally, I don't find it hot when a guy hates women and sees them all as greedy grasping "sluts" ( or okay, sadly, I do feel like sometimes authors can pull this off if the character redeems himself but I certainly wasn't feeling it here!). It's especially off putting that this guy only knows how to pleasure himself and probably has no clue how to please women even though he's apparently banged his way through billions of them.
Then there's Raven; she started out cool cause she's a mechanic but it quickly becomes apparent that she's a passive NA pushover with a bad case of Mary Sue. Seriously, Raven is so sweet and cutesy that the urge to regurgitate struck hard and fast at least 1/2 way through. I mean, I just couldn't stand her sometimes. One measly threat from her dad and she rushes home in tears, curls herself into a ball, and proceeds to fall into a catatonic state and can only be roused to life HOURS later, after the bf breaks down her door and puts his arms around her. Ugh. FYI, I did the audio version and the narrator who does this chick's voice quickly becomes annoying because she tries way too hard to act out the book and maintains a whiny warbly quality to her whispery voice throughout the entire book.
The story centers around a young mechanic, Raven, who is offered a job to work on a famous MMA fighter, Jonah’s, car. Jonah is the play boy of the MMA world and slowly but surely falls for the little spunky mechanic. Little does Jonah know Raven has secrets of her own.
I like Raven’s character, every now and then she would make some questionable decisions that most of the time I got past but I guess that’s to be expected with her upbringing. She is a resilient character with everything she has gone through, having a pimp of a father and a whore for a mother that wanted nothing to do with her. I’m glad she found someone as strong and sexy as Jonah.
Her BFF Eve, I could NOT stand and truly killed the story for me so much so that I had to give the book 3.5 stars. I hate weak females and I felt like she was a really crappy friend to Raven in the first place. The other secondary characters where awesome like Blake, Jonah’s BFF, and another man-whore and gives 0 craps about that. And Guy who is like a father figure to Raven and the owner to the shop she works at.
Jonah is all things sexy. I enjoyed the humor and banter he had with his friends it made the story that much more interesting to read. I also enjoyed how he was there for Raven and would do anything to protect her no matter what. It was a fun read albeit a bit long but fun none the less.
While I wasn't in the mood for overly an complicated and angst ridden plot, I think this book could have been improved with some more character development of the primary and secondary characters. The prostitution angle of the book was not one I have read before so found that a bit unique; however it was somewhat glossed over. I would like to have seen a little more into Dominick's business so that we as readers could have really understood her mother's circumstance as well as Raven's terror at being subjected to the same fate. I have read other 'fighter' books that are definitely grittier and more raw. While I like that at times, I wanted an easier read and appreciated that in this book. Overall it was a good start to what I hope will be a series that improves with each book. I will definitely be checking out Book 2.
