Overview

Sometimes love is enough. Other times, you have to fight for it.

Raw, real romance from an all-male point of view.

For Ryan Moore, the choice to fight is like the choice to breathe – necessary. After being wounded in war and discharged from the United States Marine Corps, competitive MMA fighting is the only thing he’s still able to excel at. Every round is a risk he can’t afford to take, but time spent outside of the cage is purgatory, until he meets female fighter Ally Rivera. For the first time since an IED blast destroyed life as he knew it, he wants something – someone. And she wants him, but the lingering effects of war might just tear them apart, if the gang violence that plagues her family doesn’t kill them first.

Rough Around the Edges is Ryan’s side of the love story told in Battered Not Broken. It’s not a sequel, but a separate novel written for those who want to experience the story through Ryan’s eyes. Read Battered Not Broken first or simply dive right in and enjoy an erotic romance novel told completely from a male point of view. It is not necessary to read Battered Not Broken First.

    I recommend reading Battered Not Broken first just because it was released first. But I really loved it from Ryan's POV too. It is essentially the same story as Battered Not Broken but with this one we get more into Ryan's head. Which is absolutely wonderful! If you've ever read the books where you get to get into the heads of both main characters and enjoyed those you will love Rough Around the Edges!

    Rough, raw and romantic.
     Ryan Moore, former marine is trying to rebuild his life after being processed out of the Marines after an injury from an IED makes him unfit for duty. He has come back physically enough to fight competitively but still suffers migraines from TBI.  Ryan has always been a fighter.  Rebelling against his family he joins the Marines and finds a sort of peace in fighting the good fight and just taking orders.  When that is taken away the only peace he finds is when he is training or fighting MMA. Then he meets female fighter Ally Rivera.  The attraction is instant on his part and as they grow together she gives him a new lease on life, a focus he has needed and a new sense of peace but can they have a future? 
    This is Ryan & Ally’s story told from Ryan’s point of view.  If you want to read it from Ally’s POV you need to read Battered Not Broken.  I’d expected Ryan’s side to be a little more raw than Ally’s and it was he is a guy after all but it was also much more sweet than I’d anticipated.  For a rough tough he man Ryan has an incredible capacity to care.  Ally’s story was wider.  It encompassed more characters but that might be because Ally is more generous with herself than Ryan is.  I totally enjoyed this story.  The sex is hot the characters are believable and the story makes you want to root for them both.
