CJ Azevedo - Without Doubt (Without #2) ♥♥♥♥♥
Ava Sterling is tough and the most straight laced girl you will ever meet. Her family and her past have managed to alter her future permanently and she has no desire to allow anyone else into her life or her heart for fear of rejection or further altering. Ava is alone in the world with the exception of the grandest responsibility she did not create on her own but on her own she will carry for the rest of her life.
Declan James is a MMA fighter, party all night kind of guy. Responsibility is nowhere to be found in his life or so he allows everyone around him to believe. Coming from wealth and a carefree lifestyle, Declan gets what he wants, always. And what he wants is Ava. In his pursuit of getting what he wants, Ava in his bed, his plan changes quickly without his consent. Against his plans of being the next hot bachelor to cross the tabloids as he makes his way to being the Ultimate Light Heavyweight Champion, Declan falls in love. He falls in love without hesitation and without doubt.
Neither Declan nor Ava are aware that fate has inconveniently intertwined their lives forever. Will they be able to survive the aftermath of the truth?
The Romance Vault's Verdict - ♥♥♥♥♥ forever trusting hearts.
I received an ARC of this in return for an honest review.
OK CJ. is new to me and I know this is book 2 and Bailey and Talon are mentioned in this book, I don't think at all that reading #2 first is going to matter too much. This can pretty much be read as a standalone.
So I actually quickly fell into Ava and Dec's story. I loved the fact that Ava knew what she was capable off, she's feisty without being overly, she thoughtful beyond anything you can imagine, she's sacrificed her younger years without batting an eyelid and although she's struggling financially she thankful for everything she's got. She's also got a deep seated need to be independant and be able to provide for herself and Harper and this is the crux of the story really. She learned from an early age that nobody ever sticks around so she does her utmost to protect herself.
Along comes Declan, and jeepers is the personality that drips off the pages for Declan hot or what! He perseveres and wears Ava down and then your reading along waiting for the upset and it isn't too long before it hits.
Now this is not a fast paced action packed story, but it's emotionally charged. It's literally all about overcoming beliefs that are instilled in you and letting go and trusting that this will be a 'forever' and this one is here to stay.
A lovely read, that was indeed sexy, had great characters, a gorgeous Harper and quite deep and meaningful. I really enjoyed this book and will definitely look out for CJ.'s books from now on.
