Getting ready for Cannon’s story…Cannon…well check out Saturday’s (9/20/2014) for more information about him…I found this novel to kick off the new Ultimate series. Ultimate will host heroes who are fighters running a community center. Oh, these heroes will not only knock your socks off but your panties too!

Gage “Savage” Ringer has been focused on one thing, being the best fighter and winning. For months he has trained, and gave up women. Even the one woman who occupies his mind all the time. When a bad accident happens in practice, he is sent home, losing his place in the one fight he wanted the most. Back home, he sees the one woman he wants, but he doesn’t know how to approach her after leaving her when they just started to date.

Harper Gates is tired of play second fiddle to fighting. She wanted Gage and understood his focus. But now he is back home, ignoring her for the most part. Well she is getting her fling on and dumping his ass afterwards….or will she?

This a very short novella all happening in the span of a couple of hours. You won’t want to put it down and the sex on the desk will leave your panties dripping for more fighters to find love. Cannon’s story is the first full novel in the series and my review of that is coming…I promise. Just like the novella though you are going to have to wait just a little bit more.

Grab this one up. You don’t need to know who anyone is or what they have done to enjoy a short story of passion rekindling and a love blossoming.

I am curious about that sex on the desk even if I’m not into this kind of contemporary romance. Id read this for that!
