Review of Unequaled by Charity Parkerson
Unequaled by Charity Parkerson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In Unequaled we return to Rhys and how he has focused on his MMA career with a single-minded focus designed to block out everything he feels is lacking in his personal life. But a phone call from his brother brings Rhys back home and forces him to focus on everything he’s missing – friends, family, and love. While Rhys is dealing with all of the overwhelming emotions that accompany his trip home, he is not at all confused by his ever-present need to needle Kerry. And said needling is what sets the stage for the best thing that has ever happened to Rhys … Asher.
I thoroughly enjoyed the scene that Kerry sets up between Rhys and Asher. HOT does not even begin to describe it. My enjoyment of the set-up is magnified toward the end of the book when Kerry reveals her true motives to Asher and gives him the proper kick in the a$$ he needed. Admittedly, based on the blurb, I thought I was going to get some hot MFM action and although I did not, I am NOT complaining. The relationship that develops between Rhys and Asher is far better than a brief ménage encounter. Rhys and Asher are two very passionate men and that makes for some freaking hot sex scenes. But as the two are falling in love, the intimacy between the men ratchets up the heat and makes for some extremely stimulating reading. And while the two must navigate relationship speed-bumps, doing so only serves to strengthen their bond.
Somehow I missed reading Undaunted and while Unequaled definitely seems to follow that story, I didn’t feel lost as the author focuses on Rhys and his inner dialogue provides enough insight that reading book two is not a requirement. That said, I do plan to go back and read it when I get the chance as I enjoy Ms. Parkerson’s writing style and the novellas she weaves around Drew’s MMA club, No Rival. I also look forward to future books in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
