About the Author
Born and raised in New England, Christa is a married mother of three. After taking a very long break from reading a friend encouraged her to read the FSOG series over the summer. Of course like every woman on the planet, she fell in love with the series. This led her to read several other Erotic Romance novels. Her world really took a crazy turn when she met a bunch of women on Facebook Group who also shared the same love of "Smutty" books. She began writing her first book Broken in October 2012, as a love story to her husband. Christa kept her book a secret from all of her "real" Facebook family and friends, including her mother, revealing on her personal page that she had written a book two weeks before the release of Broken. Broken was released in February 2013, within twenty-four hours of its release it was on Amazon's Movers and Shakers list as well as being in the Top 20 Erotica. She is currently working on her second novel titled "On the Ropes" which will be released February 2014 and "Going the Distance" being released late spring/early summer 2014. Several other novels are also in the works.

A heartfelt and passionate look into Gabriel "The Saint" Vega's life as a Boxer, Brother, friend and lover. I enjoyed this novel, it was fast paced, interesting, sexy and serious at times.
The characters were great, they had great depth. I really liked Gabriel as I got to know him better. Frankie his manager, what a character. His friend Jimmy/loyal, his brother Jason, you really felt for him and his situation. And Salem, she was awesome. Blaine, what a jerk.
All in all I give On the ropes 4 stars and can't wait to follow up with book 2 Going the distance.
First thing I am glad this didn't end in a cliff hanger per say. If you really don't enjoy it you could walk away after the book and be okay with it. I find a lot of times I read a book and I find it mediocre and it isn't until the last 2 chapter I'm left no choice but to get the next one because I have to know what happens. I was very into this book from start to end and look forward to seeing what happens next. Between the relationship of Saint and Salem and Saint and his brother Jase I'm super excited. Christa wrote some amazing characters who have awesome characteristics that draw you in. Not to mention what is going on with Frankie. There is so mystery underlying there. I hope to see more of Salem and Jolene's relationship because Jolene had me hysterical at her points. Wonderfully written and keeps you wanting more!
