Trevor “Tig” Mashburn is a man on the edge: on the edge of his twenties, on the edge of giving up his dreams of becoming an MMA fighter, and on the edge of losing the family farm.
Little Miss Perfect
Charlotte Markham always seemed to have it all: family, wealth, career, but now, at age thirty-six, she’s tired of being Little Miss Perfect and just wants to be herself.
When Charlotte has a chance encounter with Tig, he impresses her with his brash confidence and complete honesty. Tig immediately responds to Charlotte’s sweet demeanor, and feels compelled to encourage the fragile woman from underneath her veneer of perfection. Opposites may attract, and Tig and Charlotte’s relationship is more complementary than clashing. But when Tig bows to familial pressure, a frustrated and heartbroken Charlotte must convince Tig to take his own advice and become the man that he wants to be.
Kicker was nothing I expected. Less tougher that I thought, more sweeter and well focused on the characters and their relationships. When I believed that the fighting part would overstepped in the story, I was wrong.
So when the hot Kickboxer met « little miss perfect ». Recipe for a disaster?? Definitely not.
Both from different backgrounds and lifestyles, they matched perfectly.
Charlotte Markham comes from a rich family, trevor « Tig » Washburn is a peanut farmer turned fighter. She’s been held up for all her life, trying to content everyone, while Tig was carefree. They were so different but also so complementary.
As individuals, they had to face their own issues, pressure from their family. They had a great chemistry and the author managed to develop their relationship in a great way. This confident man was trying to help this woman to break free. I loved how they both work as a couple, hot and cute at the same time. The idea of a female lead was an interesting idea but I felt more connected with Tig though. He was the kind of character with his charisma and attractive aura.
I enjoyed reading Charlotte and Tig’s story, but I felt that some parts were missing out. Sometimes I wanted more and sometimes less. This book had some great elements in here but it was not enough to me. I was confused at times I had to read some parts more than once due to the alternating POV.
I was intrigued by the characters, and I’m curious to discover their stories as well. Kicker was sweet and hot!
