What do you do when you’ve just lost everything?


You fight.

For four years, I’ve been punching and kicking my way through hundreds of unworthy MMA opponents.

For four years, I’ve kept seeing her face. Maddie’s face. My one great love.

After a brutal cage match that sent me to the ER, Maddie took off across the country. Six months pregnant. She left to have my baby as far from me as she could. No more violence, she said. No fighting.

I had to live with it. I had no choice.

But last night I got a phone call from my little girl, asking me to come to her fourth birthday party. Her friends all have daddies, she said. Would I be hers?

Damn right I will.

I decide that when I get to New York, I’m not going to care about Maddie. I’m not going to even look at her.

But I do. And the moment I see her again, I know one thing is true.

This ain’t over.

In April 2015 I received a free copy of the anthology Red Hot Beginnings. Red Hot Beginnings is an anthology with fourteen (14) different full length series openers. I decided to start reading Red Hot Beginnings because it was an anthology and I am hoping to find a few good books and a few new authors.

Since Red Hot Beginnings contains fourteen (14) full length novels, I’ve decided to review each entry separately.

Note: Red Hot Beginnings is no longer for sale. Each book will have to be acquired separately – some are still free.

Fourteen NYT, USA Today, and top-selling authors have banded together to bring you 14 beautifully romantic, heart-pounding stories of love, passion, and thrilling suspense. These 14 amazing books are the beginnings to incredible series. Some of these alpha males are sweet, some are sexy, and some are furry or bitey. All will fight for their women and protect them in these 14 brilliant stories by authors you’ll love!

Ok. I’m calling it.

Red Hot Beginnings died on 21-Jan-2016 at 14:19 hours.
Fight for Her Vol. 1 was the final wound that killed it off.

Fight for Her Vol. 1 is the first of four volumes in the Fight for Her serial. I realized I couldn’t do it while reading about the two selfish ass MCs in Fight for Her Vol. 1. The hero, Parker, is a young MMA fighter who was dating the heroine, Maddie. One day after Parker has a brutal fight that put him in the hospital, Maddie runs off – six months pregnant – because “fighting for money is brutal and dangerous.”

What in the ACTUAL FUCK?! Did Maddie wake up that morning to suddenly find out her pacifist boyfriend morphed into an MMA fighter overnight??! No. Maddie met Parker as an MMA fighter. I call shenanigans and selfishness.

So the bitch Maddie runs all the way across the fucking country from LA to NYC and takes Parker’s kid. And treat Parker like he’s a piece of shit who abandoned Maddie to be a single parent when it’s MADDIE who ran the fuck away. Maddie moved in with an aunt so she was cool but the text gives the impression that everything is Parker’s fault. Bitch, please. She’s lucky she didn’t get hit with a custody suite.

That was when I realized I was DONE. Done with Fight for Her Vol. 1 and done with the Red Hot Beginnings anthology. I’ve not enjoyed myself AT ALL and all of the stories (with the exception of the first book) are all turning out to be part of a serial. I HATE SERIALS.

So. Red Hot Beginnings is a definite FAIL for me. I did not discover any new authors to read.
