BOOK REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: The Last Round by Emmy Montes

Check out my review of The Last Round by Emmy Montes. Don't forget to enter Emmy's $10.00 Amazon gift card and goodie basket giveaway below.



Title: The Last Round
Author: E.L. Montes
Release Date: December 28, 2015

Blurb
In the ring, I’m trained, powerful, and in control.
And that’s exactly how I built my legacy.
For years I’ve trained to fight, but no championship title in the world has prepared me for the most important fight of my life.
Out of the ring, I’m untamed and reckless.
Which is why my wife of nine years has filed for divorce.
I’m done with living up to the bad boy image my middleweight titles come with. Boxing is my life, but the money and the fame mean nothing to me without her by my side.
This fight is for the woman that I love.
And I can’t lose.
I won’t lose.

Title: The Last Round
Author: E.L. Montes
Release Date: December 28, 2015
Rating: 4.0 stars

After twelve years, Julian and Natalia Rios' marriage starts to fall apart. Julian's knockout looks and championship boxing title catapulted his celebrity status. Julian ends up caught up with fame, fortune, drugs, and women. Natalia is sick and tired of Julian’s behavior and wants out. Fresh out of rehab, Julian needs train for the fight of his life to win his wife back.

This friends-to-lovers story had some winning moments. Told in alternating POVs with some flashbacks from the past shed some light on why they should not “throw in the towel.” I wish this story was longer and included additional flashbacks showcasing Julian’s bad boy behavior. Overall, this was a quick read, well written and one-click worthy.

This review appears on www.kindlecrack.net, www.facebook.com/kindlecrack, Goodreads, Amazon, Google+ and Twitter. A review copy of this book was kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.




Excerpt
FLASHBACK of Julian and Natalia (High School Years)
My smile brightened with each step. This should be fun. His head was bent low as his fork stabbed into a baked potato.
Placing my tray down, I took a seat across from him. “If that was a living being lying on your plate, I’m sure you’d be charged for aggravated assault or even attempted murder. What has that poor potato done to you?”
He lifted his head, eyes meeting mine with a raised brow. He seemed both amused and annoyed I interrupted his train of thought.
“I eat alone,” he said, eyes tensed. Then he shoved a fork full of the loaded starch into his mouth. His tongue darted out and wiped clean his perfect lips. I wonder what it would be like to kiss Julian Rios.
“So do I!” I sounded a bit too bubbly, even for myself, but with a wide grin, I nestled further into the seat, crossed my legs, and reached for my apple. “We can eat alone together.”
“Why do I have the feeling you’re gonna make my life miserable?”
“But quite the contrary; by the time I’m done with you, you’re gonna want me part of your life every waking second.”
He scoffed. “I find that very difficult to believe.”
“Listen. I’m a freshman. You’re a junior. We have two long years together. Unless you switch schools, I’m all for bugging the hell out of you until you fall irresistibly in love with me.”
