Chelsea is smart, funny, gorgeous, and the best friend I’ve ever had. Ever since she left, I’ve been a wreck. I’ve been focused on keeping my family’s MMA gym afloat while I train and coach fighters, anything to not miss her more. But now she's finally back, along with her grumpy, possessive cat, and things are weird between us.
By weird, I mean I can’t stop thinking about her in that way. She’s in the room next door, and it takes all my control not to storm in there, sweep her up, and bring her back to my bed. Even stranger, I’m pretty sure she’d be into it.
And this time, I’m not going to stop fighting until we’re more.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Let me begin by saying that I don’t usually go for the whole “friends-to-lovers” trope as it is usually filled with what-if-I-risk-it-and-end-up-losing-my-friend back and forth thing that drives me completely crazy. But for Ms. Madsen’s MMA hunky fighters I was willing to make an exception, and I’m so glad I did!
While Until We’re More does indeed have a couple of “oh, no! what have I done?” moments, Liam and Chelsea were so adorable together it more than made up for it.
Chelsea and Liam have been neighbors and friends since childhood, but it wasn’t until much later that, unbeknownst to the other, they started seeing each other in a totally different light. In Until You’re Mine we know that Chelsea has moved away for a job opportunity and Liam is as happy about it as a grizzly bear just out of hibernation and being stung by a whole bee colony.
Now Chelsea is back in town for a couple of weeks to help open a new office branch for the company she works for, and with no other really good options of places to stay she accepts to be Liam’s roomy.
I had so much fun being in these two heads. Not only was their chemistry off the charts, but the way they knew each other made for some totally hilarious banter and a depth of relationship that was just lovely.
Liam was absolutely dreamy. As the older sibling, he carried the weight of the world on his shoulders and wanted to do everything to keep his family’s gym afloat, no matter the cost to himself. When he was with Chelsea, though, he could relax and was funny, sweet and totally sexy.
“I wanted to push her up against the wall. To leave her breathless with my kisses; tease her into a panting, needy state; explore every inch of her skin with my hands and mouth; and make her scream my name.”
Chelsea was the shy, klutzy, avid book-reading dreamer. A less than stellar childhood had made for some insecurities and issues that she was set on overcoming. So, while a doormatish heroine is not my favorite type, Chelsea worked at it and gained a lot of spunk through the story endearing her even more to me.
Until We’re More was a fun read, with extremely hot sexnanigans, amazing chemistry, adorable togetherness and a finicky cat named George. I completely adored the time I spent with the inhabitants of Team Domination and can’t wait to get to read Finn’s story.
