Fierce if officially available!
Tori's MMA career was taking off...
...until she beat the wrong man. Her training partner, nursing a bruised ego, snapped—shattering her trust and confidence.
Three years later, Tori’s keeping her fists to herself as she struggles to put herself through college. But when a group of gangbangers hassle her at work, old habits kick in and her fists fly. Max Estrada, a frequent diner customer, steps in and gets them out of hot water, but Tori is still fired... days before tuition is due.
With no other option, she’s forced to take a desk job at her old pounding grounds, where her demons still haunt the cage and the temptation to go glove-to-glove with familiar pro-fighter, Max Estrada, is too much. The sexy Colombian draws her back into the world of MMA and revives her dreams of becoming a professional face-puncher—until Will, her old partner and current Middleweight Champion, struts back into the gym. The secret they share is an unexpected liability to his career, and he's determined to keep her silent.
With her life on the ropes, Tori will have to face the past for a shot at winning back her future, or carry the weight of a loss even greater than before.
Fierce is a NA Contemporary Sports Romance/ Sports fiction with romantic elements. It's suitable for upper YA and adults, in my opinion. Formats available: ebook and paperback
"A unique twist on the fighter trope-- FIERCE is a compelling, original read with my favorite kind of heroine (a kick-ass one)."
- New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Cora Carmack
"If you're looking for a strong heroine who stands out in the New Adult contemporary world, L.G. Kelso's Fierce is the book for you. Why I loved it: A complex heroine dealing with inner and external obstacles; a romance that isn't the character's main goal (though it is hot!); powerful voice and an authentic journey into the MMA world."
-Diana Gallagher, author of What Happens in Water (Fall 2015, Spencer Hill Press)
Reviews: I strongly believe that reviews are for readers, and not the writers, but I have seen a few reviews for Fierce.
"Fierce is original and has definitely lived up to its title. I have never read a material like this ...
Raw and intense in small details. The author knows her theme. She knows where to punch the readers..." 5/5 Star review by Liza Dequilla (I Dare You To Read)'s Reviews. See rest of the review here (Loved this review!)
"Fierce is a story of overcoming fear and failure, it truly is a case of what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger."- Book Angel Emma
For the next two weeks, I'm going to host some interviews and guest post about people who are super passionate about their sport/art/hobby, and also about/by women in male-dominated sports. I have some fighters you may know of stopping by the site, and some authors and writers you may know as well!
