I’m going to be completely honest and say I’m still trying to figure out if this book was just ok or just something that could have been ok but left me feeling like it was missing quite a bit it had too many cliches. ~ Daniella, Guilty Pleasures
Jagger Caldwell is no one’s hero. With a reputation busting heads and breaking hearts on the underground MMA circuit, he lives for easy cash and easier women. But when he stumbles upon an all-too-familiar scene, painful memories awaken Jagger’s sensitive side and compel him to act. As a kid, he stood by helplessly as his old man beat his mom. Now, Jagger won’t let seventeen-year-old Tatiana Rand suffer the same fate. Nothing matters except saving her.
Tatiana is a prisoner in her own home, at the mercy of her violent father—until an unlikely savior bursts through her door and into her life. Six-feet-plus of tattooed muscle and raw power, Jagger is no prince charming—but Tatiana stopped believing in fairy tales long ago. Despite their differences in age and, well, everything else, the sexy bad boy sparks a fire that Tatiana never knew she had—and desires that only Jagger can quench.

I’m going to be completely honest and say I’m still trying to figure out if this book was just ok or just something that could have been ok but left me feeling like it was missing quite a bit it had too many cliches.
Jagger comes from not so great of a childhood and Tatiana comes from a childhood of abuse, so they have something in common which is the crappy childhoods. And of course, it’s what brings them together which is maybe what I found so cliche.
He’s an “underground” fighter and has been in trouble with the law yet he is the one who gets in trouble because he tries to help her.
I don’t want to do spoilers so the best I can say is – it’s sad when you know exactly what direction a story is heading and you keep reading hoping every cliche won’t be used.
