This is the first book I have read by this author definitely not the last. This story was written well and with detail you could visualise the scene in your mind which is a great gift for an author to possess. Jo is a well known Tennis Star and Zane is a famous MMA Fighter. They are not that familiar with each other in truth she has no idea who he is at all but when theirs eyes lock across a crowded room, the chemistry between them sparks to life and grows stronger with the turn of every page. This is a fast paced romance with intimacy happening quite early on after their initial meeting but do not let that sway you if that is something you do not like. This story is told well and as their passion and bond grow you see the real feelings and connection that these two lost souls have and that if you put your trust in your heart you do not always get it wrong. A most enjoyable heart warming read! Happy Reading!

I am giving this review on behalf of Katsindiebookblog. Jo is a great tennis player, working her way through tournaments such as the popular US Open. Zane is a popular MMA fighter. One night, huge party, they see each other across the way and have an instant connection. Jo doesn’t do relationships, especially when it comes to men in dangerous professions. Jo is just looking to rewind, relax and get on with her tournaments. Zane falls instantly for Jo and wants more than just a one nighter. Can Jo look past what Zane does for a living, or will she continue to push possibly the best thing in her life away?
I’ve read my share of Malia’s books and have loved them. This one is no different. It is well written with great imagery in it. Yes, it’s a little fast paced, BUT it will keep you on your toes through the whole read. For a fast paced romance novel, this would be a great choice. Chemistry is an instant between the two, it’s just a question if Jo can step over her imaginary boundaries and take a leap for possible love.

This is the first book of the Champion Hearts series where you meet Jo and Zane. It was very short and rushed, and if you were expecting a mma story, don't bother because it was more tennis than anything else, and badly written at that. It was written in both characters pov from how and when they met with a very jumpy storyline. Everything was too rushed and boring...even the sex scenes. Not good, glad it was a freebie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Sinful 15 Jan. 2015
By ~Cerys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a great story!

To be honest, I'm not usually too big on the whole fighter romance genre most of the time, but I wanted to make an exception for this one. I liked the idea of it a lot, and the sort of sports crossover between a tennis star and an MMA fighter had a lot of appeal to me. I don't think I've read a story like that before, and it piqued my interest.

I can definitely say that it kept my interest, too. Zane and Jo are two really interesting characters. Honestly, neither of them acted quite like I first thought they might. Jo was very strong-willed, but with a heart that kind of wants to be lured into temptation. A good temptation though, you know? She's looking for something special, but she's had too much pain and heartbreak in the past.

And Zane was... well, he's a bad boy, but I guess you could say he's a professional bad boy? Haha. He's not just some street thug or anything, and while he knows how to fight and fights professionally, he takes his career very seriously.

What I liked was that they were both passionate about something other than each other, which sounds weird at first, but I thought it added a lot of dynamic. Zane first met Jo at a party, where he probably got sort of the wrong impression of her, and uh... it's easy for her to get the wrong impression of him, too. Either way, they had an explosive connection, which was great.

But... it's not supposed to last, right? Or... maybe it can?

This is a great book, with some beautiful and exciting characters! I'd definitely recommend it. It was sweet and sexy, sinful and steamy, and everything in between. I enjoyed it a lot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jo and Zane 22 Jan. 2015
By Ohmybookgoddess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's been awhile since I've had a good fighter book, but I'm happy to say Malia Mallory's latest hits all the right buttons. Powerful alpha fighter Zane has a craving for pro tennis star Jo. The chemistry begins right away when they meet at a party, and explodes into one unforgettable night. Then the real drama begins!

Jo past and high stress athletic world makes her initially fear Zane's advances. He won't let go. This is a hot, sexy, and emotional story of pursuit with some seriously memorable moments. I enjoyed the chase and loved the style. Mallory does a great job at mixing New Adult angst with steaming hot romance and the deeper kind of fated love. There were also some twists and turns I didn't see coming, but you'll have to read it to find out!

This is a wonderful addition to the MMA fighter romance world from talented Malia. Can't wait to see what she brings us next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Zane & Jo= Perfect Together 19 Jan. 2015
By Elizabeth Clinton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Just WOW is how you start this review. This is the story of Zane all Alpha MMA fighter with the heart of gold. And Jo a professional tennis player right at the top of her game.
The two meet at a party and the minute their eyes meet the Chemistry is off the charts.
Zane is all in but Jo is scared after being burned in the past. The two have a few bumps in the road but to get to HEA that what needs to happen.
If you love sports, romance and everything that comes in between this is a read you don't want to miss

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good 6 Feb. 2015
By Tracie Lampe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When the story starts off I thought Jo was a good girl being dragged out by her party animal friend. Turns out Jo is trying to be the good girl but fails. When she gives in to her lustful desires to go home with Zane she just figures its going to be a one night stand - He's a bad boy after all and she knows bad boys aren't forever type of guys. Little did she know Zane might look and even be a bad boy but he has set his sights on her. He tries to get her to see that what they have is more than a fling but she just breaks his heart. Jo eventually realizes the error in her ways and goes after Zane hoping it's not too late. Hot sex scenes. Fabulous ending.
