Okay I fell in Love with Sapphire Knight's writing when I read Forsaken Control. Her writing is so intriguing and flows well. Her characters are so well developed and the worlds she creates for us to travel are so vivid that it is like I am right there.
Unexpected Forfeit was my first MMA Novel I Know I Know I am behind lol but I assure you now that Sapphire Knight popped that cherry ;) ;) I will be devouring more so many more.
I absolutely Loved Jace's character. I loved that he came from a broken past but he did not let that determine his future he knew what he wanted out of life and he was going to achieve all of his life goals. One goal was to rise to the top of the MMA World and that he did. With the One Distraction He could not live without Chyna (Kiki). The fighting scenes was so phenomenal it was like I was watching it live or even on TV.
Chyna's (Kiki) was always a fan of Jace "The King" Kash and when her friend set her up to meet him let's just say she made an impression. Chyna was a spitfire of a character strong and independent yet vulnerable when Jace was around she had an attraction to him that was like a magnet that was pulling them together. Fate had a hand in that relationship and they flipped each other's worlds upside down it the most passionate and thrilling way.
Sapphire Knight you have outdone yourself again and you are now on the top of my must read author's list. Thank You for all the work you put into creating these amazing characters and worlds for us to become acquainted with.
I'm really loving the whole fighter thing, and I can't wait for more on some of the other characters that were introduced in this book. Ms. Knight did a great job capturing and keeping my attention and I'm without a doubt, a new fan! Can't wait to read her other books!
Chyna loves MMA and goes to a lot of matches. She is a total fan and King is her favorite. Not normal for most women but Chyna likes different. At times she can be a little unpredictable and wild.
Jace and Chyna meet one night after one of his matches. They become friends who are very attracted to each other. The more time they spend together the harder it is to deny the sexual chemistry between them. Both have past experiences that makes them hesitate to move forward with a relationship. Jace is career focused and disciplined. Chyna is unpredictable and you can never tell what will come out of her mouth next. Can these two balance each other?
Unexpected Forfeit is fast paced, smooth flowing, and I read it in one sitting. The action is in the ring and out. The technical details of MMA tell exactly how much research was put into this book. I am a MMA follower and it was superbly written. Very refreshing. Well balanced between ring time, training, and romance. Loved the way I got to read the relationship unfold and they didn't just skip straight to bedroom time. Great job Sapphire Knight. I can't wait for the next book in this series. This author just keeps impressing me. Great read!
It was so wordy and filled with unnecessary information that I struggled to get through it. I didn’t connect with either character and even as I’m sitting here writing this I have a hard time recalling the story.
The monologue was overwhelming, don’t tell me Show me.
I have loved all of Sapphire Knights books so maybe this was just a blip, crossing my fingers that next one is better.
I am glad to report that it was EXACTLY what I hoped for story wise. To the point where after I was done, I messaged the author and told her I loved it and expressed what parts I loved the most...Which I wont add in here because I don't do spoilers or plot rundowns...READ THE BOOK!
Chyna and Jace were great characters, (although in the beginning Chyna's inner monologues at the fight were a bit...ehh) This was a love story more than anything I think. Two people, one couple overcoming their pasts to try and find where they fit. Chyna especially, anyone would understand her apprehension toward a relationship given her past. What makes me SO happy is that Sapphire didn't feed the angst monster by using that as a plot point, even though at times I thought she might. She stayed true to the character and kept their love pure and solid.
What I need to know is: When will we get Gavin's story??
This is my Confession: I've said in the past that I am a converted fan and this TRULY solidifies that that was a good decisions. Well played, Sapphire.
