Reviews The Fighter (Redemption, #2)

  • A little birdie told me...
    All that build up in The Trainer for something great to happen in this one, and... nothing. The cliffy, one in which we had to wait much longer than anticipated to receive the answers, is over quickly, very anticlimactic and boring. In fact, the whole book, The Fighter, is boring. Told from Destry's point of view, we find he's like probably every other fighter character that's ever been written. Angry, shitty past, been screwed over by most every...

    Ah, so perfect...After the ending of The Trainer I went crazy and immediately began reading The Fighter.So, this H is pretty much the H you expect in a fighter book. His past was not easy, he's angry BUT, but, all of that changes when the heroine comes. And come on, let's be honest, we like this kind of hero! A tortured one, ah, love 'em.Now, they did NOT like each other at first, but with time they got closer and found love in each other. Argh, ...

    So the incredible picture that Shey painted in The Trainer becomes a masterpiece in The Fighter. I even tried to call in sick so I could finish it and my boss who knows me so well said no you can not stay home and read lol. Was worth a try :) Once again I was hooked from page one, who wouldn't be after the first book. How could I not want to spend more time with Destry MMMM. Ok so the fight scene in this book... WOW! I felt like I was there watch...

    Wow. The combination of these two books was so good. I'm not a huge fan of boxing or MMA type stories but I really appreciated the detail put into understanding the sport and why someone would choose it. I also liked the format with a different POV for the first and the second books. These were strong characters with a connection you could feel. 4.5 stars!!!.

    Great end to this little duet series.

    It's been a while since I read The Trainer, so I did a quick reread to refresh my memory about everything leading up to that cliffy ending. Told from Destry's POV, we don't get the joking and sassy inner monologues I enjoyed from Tallan, instead witnessing a much more intense and repetitive mantra inside our hero's head. The chemistry and the chase of their relationship was laid out in book one, letting us enjoy a better look at the couple facing...

    Another enjoyable read. I like that this was told from Destry's POV. I liked him in the first book and this put him in perspective and made me like him even more. And I didn't find Tallan annoying in this so that's a plus.These are the first books I've read by this author, and I'm not sure if it's a common occurrence, but I appreciated the definitions at every chapter. Taught me some thangs about boxing. I know a lot but a few of the terms were n...

    When it comes to Tallan, Destry is a very hands on man, "growling in her ear, I wrapped my arms around her chest from behind drawing our bodies together. “I can’t get enough of you,” I whispered, knowing she understood." Tallan knows how to drive her man wild, "groaning, my head fell forward, against her shoulder . “Of course you have to look like that tonight.” Unable to stop myself, I drew her closer so her body was pressed to mine, o...

    So......I liked the Trainer, and then I had to wait for the Fighter : I was so not happy about that. I loved the Fighter, I loved Destry in the Trainer, so having the Fighter be all from his POV was perfect because that was what was missing for me in the first book. And with the ending of Trainer, I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy where the story would go... but I did, and I loved that the story didn't become contrived or get bogged down in need...

    This would have been a 5 star for me but I feel the uncle situation wasn't resolved at all. It was just kind of left. I love Destry and this book is told from his POV. I was a bit disappointed that the cliffhanger from book one was wrapped up early in the book but after finishing it, I this I understand what the author was trying to do. good story :-)
  • Jill
    I can't say enough good things about this book! I've been waiting a while for this one and I finally got closure from the cliffhanger we were left with at the end of The Trainer! And Destry, that poor guy. Loved him and Tallan even more in this book!! Another great book by Shey!
  • Christy
    loved this book! Review to come
  • Mel
    I loved the first book but this one? Hmmm. Destry was a little too wordy and sensitive for me. Honestly I think Tallan was more fierce than him!
  • Shannon
