Rock bottom has built way more champions than privilege has.

Blaire, an underachieving college student with zero prospects and a ton of issues (hey, being the less-successful twin of a gorgeous supermodel would totally do that to you) needs something from Ty.

Mixed Martial artist Ty, a soon-to-be Welterweight champion of the Xtreme Warrior League and the hottest guy in the Bay Area, wants something from Blaire.

But Ty has a secret.
And Blaire can barely even handle his truths.

Life is about to throw a few knockout punches at both of them. Can they handle the pain?

Tyed is a standalone novel.

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
MMA fighter stories are one my guilty pleasures. I love how the strong fighters fight in the ring but outside of it, they’re gentle with their women. In this story, you get Ty and Blaire. From the start you can tell that Blaire is not your typical girl and I love it. She’s not trying to get with Ty; instead she’s trying to stay away and fails. Her character shows a lot of depth and growth; I felt connected with her from the beginning. I enjoyed watching her find out who she is and that she doesn’t always have to do what’ expected. Ty grows up as well. His character is one I think a lot of athletes can relate to. There’s always that stigma of using performance enhancing drugs and doing the wrong things to get ahead in their sport. I loved how Ty changes for Blaire; it’s proof that love can help anyone change.

The plot was fantastic. I loved how it flowed and kept me entertained. I enjoyed finding out more about Blaire’s twin Izzy and her role in Blaire’s life. The only thing that bothered me was Shane. I could not like him to save my life. He came off as sleazy and creepy to me. Despite that, I loved the book. Pick up a copy today. I really hope that there’s another book for Izzy because she and Blaire are just too funny.
