Prepared to fight by EJ Shortall ♥♥♥♥
I haven’t read E.J. Shortall before this, but I sure will now. The writing was engaging and the drama was well portrayed. I found that I thoroughly enjoy her style. As I read I could insert myself into the world she created. The characters are easy to identify with. She portrays emotion with detail and depth.
I enjoy how Olivia isn’t model thin, it’s good to see an author that lets us curvy women have a place in the genre.
Olivia has an awesome job and wants to get to the top of the food chain. She is “prepared to fight” to get there.
Nathan has a lot on his plate. What with being a personal trainer, CEO of GO and an MMA fighter. It’s no wonder he is a moody a**hole. He falls for Olivia and has to “fight: to fit her into his life.
I love the twist that was thrown at us. I wanted so badly to fight for this couple. I would love to see more of all the characters in this book I think it will be a neat series.
I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
Title: Prepared To Fight
Author: EJ Shortall
Release Day: July 10
Hosted by: SBB Promotions
Live each day as if it were your last. Worry only about yourself. Work hard and never, ever fall in love. That’s Olivia Buchanan’s motto and she stands by it every day.
Feisty, headstrong and confident, recent graduate Liv is fighting to succeed in the male dominated field she has chosen as her career. As an architect for her best friend's father's respected London based company, her chance to shine and become recognised comes when she lands the prestigious account for GO Sports and Leisure.
Armed with her plans and determination, Liv is ready to deliver the presentation of her life. That is, until he walks in. The mysterious personal trainer from the gym. The only man to have ever made her heart flutter. But he isn't all he seems.
When MMA fighter, Nathan Oakes offers Liv a business proposition to join him in Southern France, she’s left questioning his motives and wonders if she should refuse. She’s also equally intrigued by the prospect of what the trip could do for her career.
Liv has no time for a relationship. Nate doesn’t want one. When forced to live side by side, feelings are stretched and emotions are battled. Can they keep their professional and personal lives separate, preventing them from falling into something they both need to avoid?
EJ Shortall was born and raised in a suburb of London, England where she currently still resides.
Having worked in education for the better part of 12 years, EJ decided a change was needed. Following a moment of inspiration, she decided to put pen to paper not expecting anything to come from the few words she had. Soon those few words turned into her first novel, Silver Lining. Not content with just writing the one, she continued with book two and then three, and has many, many more ideas just waiting to be written.
She has always enjoyed reading, but found it was mostly just a holiday extravagance. Then she discovered a certain worldwide best seller, and her passion was reignited. Reading quickly became an obsession and she couldn’t devour books fast enough. The books on her shelves and reading devices range from sweet, Young Adult romances, to smouldering erotic encounters. If pushed for an answer she would say that sexy rock star romances are her favourite.
Aside from reading and writing, EJ also enjoys amateur photography, playing around with graphics and cake decorating.
“I am on one amazing roller coaster ride at the moment. I have met so many new and wonderful people, discovered new music gems to integrate into my stories, and learned so many new skills. I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me.”
