Darkest Hour Before Dawn (THIRDS #9) [Sebastian & Hudson] by Charlie Cochet

What can I say, I simply LOVE this series. Seb and Hudson's story was beautiful but it was mostly heart breaking. We've known about these two for a while now, and getting to hear Hudson's side of things made me feel so sorry for both of them. 7 years being apart yet never truly being able to put their feelings aside. That's what it means to be marked.

On The Ropes Series Box Set (On the Ropes #1-3) by Aly Martinez

I know.. I just posted my last review of the third book in the series.. but since I bought the three of them in this book-set, I decided to make a sort of round-up of my thoughts. 

I'll start by saying I LOVED this series and I seriously have to look up more books by Aly. The first and third books were AMAZING. Filled with New Adult angst at its best. I was hooked and I couldn't and didn't want to put them down. All three siblings are connected through their love of boxing and the free program offered by the new boxing gym "On the Ropes" changed their lives forever. Every book deals with a serious issue one of the brothers were going through and since they have 5-6 years apart, we get to see all of them grow up and mature, make families, continued on with their lives, take care of one another and make each other happy they best they knew how.  

Fighting Solitude (On the Ropes #3) [Quarry Page & Liv James] by Aly Martinez

It's my third day of being sick and 3 is the charm, I was home all day but unlike the previous days I felt well enough to swallow this whole book. Quarry and Liv's story was beautiful, sensitive and the best rap for this awesome trilogy. I couldn't have asked for more. Quarry and Liv deserved each other but I guess a few years needed to pass by in order for them to find each other and be in the right place where they could at last act upon the love they shared for 13 years. If you haven't read any book in the series I think you should stop right here.. go back to the beginning, read my review of Till in "Fighting Silence" because I will be referring to spoilers to the previous books.

Fighting Shadows (On the Ropes #2) [Flint Page & Ash Mabie] by Aly Martinez

I admit that after the previous one, I had crazy expectation for this one, not only that, I really liked Flint and how different he seemed from both Till and Quarry (more of a silent, self controlled brainiac). But in this one, I found a bitter, angry and mostly high-handed man I00 disliked. Sadly, Ash wasn't a favorite either since she was too childish to my liking. So somehow I struggled through the book, and though I did find myself hoping they find their way to each other while both maturing and realizing who they are and what they want, it still felt lacking, mostly because my connection to both MC felt fragile. It was there one minute and then there was an eyeroll when I was annoyed with their behaviour. I wanted this book to be so much more and I wanted to see Flint's progression in a much better way but somehow it was shadowed and rushed through. I guess with Flint's "It's no big deal" attitude I can see why it did make sense to skip it.
