Reviews Undefeated

  • Nicola
    Rugby is one of my pleasures in life and not just because the players thighs are a work of art. The atmosphere, the camaraderie between both the fans and the players, the all-round passion, there’s nothing like it. So when I started this and discovered that the club the hero plays for when we first meet him is my hometown, along with the fact he’s a Yorkshireman who can make Cottage Pie, calls an evening meal tea and uses the word git, I was ...

    2.5 - 3 ★'sI was definitely curious about this book. I hadn't read a book by Jane Harvey-Berrick before although I know a lot of my GR's friends really like her books. And well, almost everyone has seen heard of Stuart Reardon. Sounds like a win-win, right? Unfortunately for me, not so much. The amount of rugby information was a bit overwhelming. TBH I don't really care what all the positions do, all the injuries they get, all the league info, ...

You will dream it. You will fall head over heel in love with it.It’s been nothing like I expected. Rather let me reformulate: I expected something good as I know Jane Harvey-Berrick’s writin...

    Let me first just say that Stuart Reardon is so much more than just a handsome face. I didn't know what to expect from his collaboration with Jane Harvey-Berrick, but knowing Jane's work intimately I knew to expect something of quality. And then I started it. And I quickly realized oh this book would clearly be more than quality. And it is. It is extraordinary. I was immediately pulled into Nick Renshaw's world of rugby and never looked back. And...

    English / Português3,5 starsCuriosity. That's what attracted me most to read UNDEFEATED. I have read a few books by Jane, however, being the first book by Stuart Reardon, a former Rugby player and current model among other things - including covers of authors we know and love - I was extremely curious about this partnership. And it was a good surprise. I liked them together.The book tells the story of rugby player Nick Renshaw, who had just been...
  • Kindling Micky
    I’m already a Jane Harvey-Berrick fan but I had a little trepidation going into this book with a debut author as a writing duo, no prejudices, I was just unsure what I’d find. Actually, what I did find was that the experience of Stuart Reardon brought a tangibility and raw-ness to the sports element of this book that made it unique in the world of sports romance. So, I have come out of this unsure where each author started and finished in ter...

    4 STARS! "I've always thought that being nice is undervalued." There was A LOT to like in Undefeated! It was solidly written, and I loved the passion for rugby that underscored the whole story.Nick is a professional rugby player whose world comes crashing down when he suffers a potentially career-ending injury. His club sends him to sports psychologist Dr. Anna Scott to help him get back in the game, so to speak. Of course, sparks fly between...
  • Hms
    I really enjoyed this collaboration between one of my favorite authors, Jane Harvey-Berrick, and new to me author Stuart Reardon. Anna and Nick were solid characters with some big problems. Some of said problems were unavoidable but were absolutely compounded by one spiteful, acrimonious bi**h called Molly. I so hoped a dump truck would knock her into a vat of battery acid. In all, some life altering problems overcome by likable characters, a sol...

    3.5 starsUndefeated was a raw story - however, even if it almost read as a biography at times, I had difficulties truly enjoying the two main characters.
  • Kristiej
    : I hold my fingers a bit when I start a new Harvey-Berrick book. While most of them are so truly wonderful and tear inducing that for me they are well deserved five star or solid A’s. But every so often I’ll read one that hits my hot button and I can’t even finish it. Undefeated is definitely the first, very much a thumbs up book.I’m on her mailing list so I’ve seen for a while this book was written in collaboration with Stuart Reardon...

    ***4.5 ‘I Will Rise. I Will Return’ Stars*** Have you ever finished a book where you were all kinds of swoony happy and yet ragey and irritated all at the same time??Well...that’s me right now and it has been about 12 hrs since finishing the book and getting a decent night’s sleep in, so the struggle has been real with getting the words to cooperate. But the bottom line is I really enjoyed Undefeated. It gave me a huge case of emotional w...
  • ♡ Jeri's Book Attic ♡ I like
    I already had the pleasure of meeting Stuart Reardon at a book convention and I think I will be repeating myself when I say that I love Jane Harvey-Berrick’s writing style. So when it came to my attention that those two would be writing together well it was a given that I needed to read that.I am not sure how they shared their work but I think it is fair to assume that this detailed knowledge about Rugby and the emotions of the players is defin...

    I will rise... I will return..... And I will be undefeated Firstly this cover, I love it, brilliant cover choice for this story. Undefeated is a good story that I found myself completely immersed both with the plot and the characters. Undefeated is based on the story of a Rugby player Nick Renshaw who on his way up the ladder to bigger and better times in his game gets knocked down through an injury and from there Nicks world Spiral's. Anna Scott...
  • Selma
    I'm a die-hard fan of Jane Harvey-Berrick and her fantastic writing. I know her as a very versatile author who always comes up with unique and refreshing new ideas. So when she announced that she is writing a rugby romance novel with Stuart Reardon - a former professional athlete and now model and fitness coach - I was beyond excited and had certain hopes and expectations for this collaboration. What I didn't however expect was that it would touc...

    Hey... I guess I would have enjoyed much more if it wasnt in third person, I'd rather read first pov, buuut... in a way this book kept me thinking.Nick is a very sweet man, he is devoted to his profession, he is in love with life and he has gone through some shit...Anna is hardworking, she is determined and very professional. She is lovely and easy to like.It's easy to see Jane's writing, with mature and grownups, there is no childish discussion,...

    4.5 starsSimply put, I was blown away. This book went way beyond my expectations. It is unlike any other sports romance I've read. The biggest draw was knowing there was a bit of truth to this story. It was insightful, genuine, distressing, inspiring, heartwarming, heartbreaking, scandalous, and engaging. It made me see athletes and their struggles in a whole new light. Jane Harvey-Berrick and Stuart Reardon did a wonderful job. Their collaborati...
  • Michaelene
    The idea of Jane Harvey-Berrick and Stuart Reardon’s Undefeated nabbed my attention. I’m sure other romance readers have seen Reardon gracing other romance novel covers, and this one had a rugby player hero (like Reardon was). I really wanted a sports romance and while this one delivered on the sports, the romance didn’t receive the same treatment. Where this novel really shines is on the life of an athlete. In particular, what happens afte...
  • Il confine dei libri
    Buonasera lettrici!Oggi vi parlo in anteprima della mia ultima lettura in lingua, mi riferisco a “Undefeated” di Stuart Reardon e Jane Harvey Berrick.Nick Renshaw è un giocatore di rugby professionista che porta sul suo corpo le cicatrici di partite vinte e perse, per lui il rugby è qualcosa che lo definisce e lo completa. Tutto sta andando a gonfie vele: ha una carriera promettente e presto si sposerà con la donna che ama, ma un grave inf...

    "Giving up only accomplishes one thing: failure." I admit that it was the collaboration of the co-authors that intrigued me the most about this story. I have zero knowledge about rugby, but I've enjoyed Jane Harvey-Berrick books in the past, so I knew she had the talent to make this work. And yes, I knew who Stuart Reardon was too. I've seen him on many book covers, including this one. The fact that he is actually a pro rugby player made me even ...

    I admit the reason I wanted to read I was curious on how Stuart Reardon's writing style. Plus the blurb does sound interesting even if I know little about rugby. As a fan of JHB's writing already I wonder how they split the writing and it would be combined. As a sports fan I'm eager to try a new sport in my reading. Took me a while to get into it I had to get into the writing since I'm not used to it. Part two was better. I Even if I don't follow...

  • Karma Queen
    Full disclosure - I'm a big fan of Stuart Reardon and was both excited about and dreading reading this book. I did not want to be disappointed. I gave it a shot since it was a collaboration with Jane Harvey-Berrick. Besides, how will you know if you never try?I enjoyed the book and thought it was very timely that it shows how today's social media can be used to tear down a person's reputation. Word bytes gain traction quickly before the full stor...

    Wow... What a nice story... In South Africa Rugby is like, I guess Football to Americans.

So he gets sent to a sports psychologist to help him heal.Anna Scott is a sports psychologist who has had her own share of heartache and down on her luck. She moved from the US to the UK hoping fo...
