Pregnant and married at the young age of eighteen, I settled into my life not knowing there could ever be more.

Until Mason, with his cocky smirk and magnetic baby blue eyes. With a single look and a few words, he made me feel sexy and alive. But as quickly as he came into my life, he was gone, leaving me wanting more.

A few days later my mom died, and her final words of advice—life’s too short to settle—are what I vowed to live my life by. Not even a year after her death, I was divorced and ready to find the one.

Only I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to find someone who could make me feel the way Mason did. Five years later, and I’m still single, looking for my forever.

I’m the guy who fights and f*cks. The guy who goes fishing but never keeps what he catches. The responsibility that comes with commitment isn’t for me.

Until Mila comes back into my life making me want things I’ve never imagined wanting. Now, the man I’ve always been is quickly losing the fight against the man I want to be.

I’m supposed to want the woman who wants the right now. Yet, I’m falling for the woman who wants the forever.

My Review:

Takedown (Fighting Love #3)Takedown by Nikki Ash

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars…..

Every book I read by Nikki Ash becomes my favorite! That’s right! Takedown is my newest favorite. But of course I know that will change when I read another of her amazing books. I’m so happy, that while I have read several of this author’s books, there are some I haven’t. I can’t wait to for the opportunity to read them. Nikki Ash has an amazing talent for writing a story that not only tugs at your heartstrings, but brings you sexiness, romance, angst, vulnerability and the sweetest of happily-ever-afters. Totally swoon-worthy endings!

Mason and Mila…..
We’ve met both these characters in previous titles. I liked them then and I love them now. Both Mila and Mason have different personalities. Mila is a single mom looking for a happily-ever-after. While she is attracted to Mason, that’s all it can be because he is definitely not “night in shining armor” material.

Or is he?

Mason doesn’t want to depend on anyone. And he most definitely doesn’t want anyone depending on him. He is not looking for a relationship, ever. He will never put himself in a position where someone would have to count on him. In my honest opinion, Mason was way too hard on himself. My heart ached for him. I want to add right here that Mason had his faults but I found him to be a loving, caring, loyal man. He was a gentlemen in every sense. The author is amazing at giving us not only Mila, but Mason’s perspective. I can’t tell you how much better this story was, how full of depth and complexity I found Mason’s character to be, having had a front seat to his thoughts. I won’t go into details because bits and pieces of Mason’s past are revealed throughout the entire book. And I loved that. I was too busy being engaged in the story to worry about the angsty parts. Yeah, I’m not a huge fan of angst but I know that a great book will have a perfect balance of it. Takedown was perfect in that aspect.

In addition to a great story, we also get to visit with past friends from previous books. There are always friends and family present on the pages. This was another favorite for me. I recommend you check out the “Fighting For Love” series. While each book can definitely read as a standalone, you will enjoy the experience twice as much if you can read them in order. Nikki’s writing pace is smooth and steady so you can devour these books in no time at all.

As always, I look forward to reading more by this author.
This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Available July 28th!
