Shane Dekkar is an undefeated, gorgeous, and somewhat shy boxer from Compton California. In the ring, he's a beast, out of the ring, he's loving, caring, and intriguing. After the death of his grandfather, he moves to Austin and meets Kace by happenstance as she and her boyfriend are in an argument in public. He is drawn to her, and she to him. Her boyfriend drives away as she mouths the words "help me" through the window...
When they meets again two years later, Shane begins to believe in fate. But, as he prepares for a potential shot at a championship fight, he believes there's no time in his life or career for a woman.
Kace Meadows lives in Austin, Texas. Now 26, she has been in an abusive relationship since she was sixteen years old. As terrible as it is, she can’t seem to find a way to allow herself to end it. With her current boyfriend, she can’t seem to win. She finds hope in reading about her book boyfriends....and dreaming.
Until she meets Shane Dekkar, a boxer. Holy mother of perfection...
Shane fights his inner demons by using his fists. On the street or in the ring, Shane does what he does best, he wins at any cost. Unlike Kace, Shane can’t seem to lose.
Undefeated is an extremely romantic erotica novel about fighting. Fighting for what you believe in. Fighting for life. Fighting to live. And fighting to keep love once you find it.
We were given the ARC of this book for an honest review.
In Undefeated, you have Shane Dekkar. He is an undefeated boxer who is a beast in the ring, but a caring, somewhat shy guy outside the ring. Then you have Kace Meadows. She is in a long standing relationship with someone who abuses her both mentally and physically. One day, they cross paths by fate and the 'Undefeated' Shane Dekkar, doesn't know what hit him.
To say I felt horrible for Kace, would be the understatement of the year. She is in a 10 year long relationship with a guy who controls every aspect of her life. He finds, it's his job to 'keep her in line' by either physically harming her or mentally abusing her. The thing is, she is so broken that she truly believes that she deserves her punishments. Then one night, while on the receiving end of a 'punishment' in a public place, Shane steps in. Over time, Kace realizes that she deserves better and finally sticks up for herself.
Shane... Shane... Shane. He is 'the one' you want on your side. He's a boxer, strong, HOT, caring and just an all around great guy. If you were to look up your perfect 'book boyfriend', his picture would be there staring back at you. He helps Kace get back on her feet after finally standing up for herself.
Although him and Kace have a strong connection, he is always the gentleman and always thinking of her first. Ok, yes there is sex in this book and YES it doesn't start happening until about 60% in. I personally loved the anticipation of it. Shane waited until Kace was mentally ready. There's one particular part of the book that starts with Kace trying on dresses and ends with super steamy-ness.
Definitely, pick this book up. Scott's writing style allows you to really experience everything the characters are feeling.
I gave this book 4.25 stars.
