Knockout by JC Valentine is book 1 of the Wayward Fighters novels. Let me start out by saying that right now, I have a tiny obsession with MMA fighters, and I’ve read a few books now where the male character was a fighter. However, Jami “The Judge” Weston, may just take the cake. Warning: Jami will invoke drooling, swooning, and sighing. He may also piss you off. Oh, but he’s so worth it. Ally comes from a family where spousal abuse was a regular occurrence. Back then, as a young boy, Jami was her protector, her savior, her light. The books begins with Ally and Jami being reunited after years and years. Jami doesn’t know who she is at first, but that doesn’t last long. For Ally, who never stopped loving Jami, she feels as if she’s finally gotten a missing piece of herself back now that Jami is a part of her life again. But does she really? Jami makes it very clear that he is not looking for anything more than a physical relationship with her. He doesn’t have room for the distraction that a deeper relationship would bring with it. Can Ally handle something like that?
