    Dylan Gomez is an MMA fighter looking to go Pro only thing that'

    Dylan Gomez is an MMA fighter looking to go Pro only thing that's stopping him~his shoulder. Dylan gets a blast from his past by seeing Reagan Holloway. Dylan knows that he's blown his chances with Reagan but would love nothing more than to explain his actions to her. Reagan not expecting to see Dylan Gomez after all these years. To Reagan, no other man compares to Dylan nor can she forget him either. Max Garcia is Dylan's trainer and father figure. He only wants what best for Dylan~Reagan. Max is determined to get Reagan to accept his proposal. Will Dylan get a second chance? Will Reagan accept Max's proposal? Your answers await you in Against the Ropes.




    What a great story about losing trust and love. The hard work it takes to gain both of those things back again. Reagan and Dylan are beautiful couple together. Max is definitely my favorite character in the whole book. I'll definitely be reading more of this author's work in the future.

    Excellent!

    Loved this! Hot alpha male with a couple of roll-in-the-floor-laughs thrown in and what's not to like?! Can't wait for Jake and Amanda's story.

    Reviewed by Samantha Rivera for Readers' Favorite

    Regan is a physical therapist who’s trying to get her life going in the direction she wants after a five-year drought. She’s been simply existing instead of living. A date with a co-worker is supposed to change all of that until she stumbles across the one man she never thought she’d see again. Dylan was the love of her life until five years ago when he broke her heart. Now he’s older, more mature, or at least that’s what he says. But is he really a different person than he was before? Or is he the same person who hurt her before? He's going to have to prove himself before she will let him have a chance again.

    The two characters in Carly Fall’s Against the Ropes are so realistic you start to experience everything they are going through. Both have suffered as a result of what Dylan did five years ago and both of them are hoping for a chance to start over. You can’t help but feel sorry for both of them (yes even Dylan) and hope that things will all work out in the end. It's hard not to love them and not to get caught up in the passion that they have always shared. 

    This book packed a lot into a small package but you will definitely be happy because Fall was able to tie up all the loose ends for her fans. This is one of those stories you’ll be done with far too soon and you’ll be wishing for more on both Reagan and Dylan.

                                    Great book to read and never let you down while you turned each page                                   

    A two-punch knockout in the fifth round.

    Dylan and Regan’s story is a layered one. And sometimes when there are layers in a book, the storyline can get bogged down and lost immediately and the writer never gets back on track.

    From the beginning it looks like your ordinary stereotyped story about the boy from the wrong side of the tracks trying to make a boxing name for himself and falling in love with a girl from the right side of the tracks. And if that is what you see when you read the blurb then you have missed the whole story. I am so glad I read it, because this was a great book to read and never let me down while I turned each page.

    I felt myself pulled into their worlds, the boxing side and even the physical therapy side. Who knew, physical therapy is as sexy as it is! And boxing isn’t just about two guys beating each other to a pulp, as some people would think.

    Dylan is the boxer who grew up with disadvantages but parlayed them into gold until he screws up not only Regan, but his career. Now he has to show the boxing world he really wasn’t a one hit wonder.

    Regan is the physical therapist who has to not only handle watching Dylan in a boxing match while she is on a date (how awkward) but be professional about the perfect job opportunity Max, Dylan’s trainer, offers her.

    Max, Dylan’s trainer/manager was a breath of fresh air from the stereotypical manager you think about regarding boxing. He’s rough, yes, but not some grizzled old has been. This man is loving and protective but has a calculating side that I did not expect to be there. Calculating in a good way which made me want to hug him if he weren’t in a book.

    I loved this book because of all the layers. It was right on track from page one. Yay!! Against The Ropes is a hit!
