The paperback edition of Battered Not Broken (which debuted as an ebook last month) released today. It can be found on Amazon and will soon be available elsewhere online, like B&N.
Virtually any brick and mortar book store can also order it in for customers.
Ryan Moore forged his own path when he defied his wealthy family’s expectations by joining the United States Marine Corps as an enlisted man. After a period of service that’s cut short by an IED explosion, the lingering physical and mental effects of war result in an isolated struggle to exist in the civilian world. He throws himself into competitive MMA fighting – the one thing he’s still able to excel at, even if every match is a risk he can’t afford to take.
His first encounter with amateur female fighter Ally Rivera ignites a spark of desire he hasn’t felt since before a bomb left its marks on his life and his body, but his flirtation with her turns out to be anything but harmless. She’s struggling to hold together a family ravaged by violence – a feat that isn’t easy when her father has been imprisoned, leaving her vulnerable to relatives who run a local gang. Can two unrelenting fighters overcome challenges they couldn’t defeat alone, or do the wounds of war and crime run too deep for even love to heal?
P.S. I was recently interviewed about Battered Not Broken by book reviewer Kame, and that interview went live today at The Book Queen’s Book Palace Review Blog. Check out the interview right here to find out what inspired me to write Ryan & Ally’s story and why I wrote it the way I did.
Oh … and don’t forget to check what’s coming soon if you’re ready for more of Ryan and Ally – especially Ryan.
