    Omg! This was the most depressing thing I have read this month. (And not in a good way) I'm sorry but it wasn't just depressing it was sad.. again not in a good sad cry my eyes out way! Paige is this waitress/bartender who lives with a guy that is one of the biggest players.. One day she is waiting table and in walks Levi, who is this disgusting, arrogant, jerk and asshole and she lets him know she is not interested.. She is a relationship type of girl and he likes "strange" he has all these women Omg! This was the most depressing thing I have read this month. (And not in a good way) I'm sorry but it wasn't just depressing it was sad.. again not in a good sad cry my eyes out way! Paige is this waitress/bartender who lives with a guy that is one of the biggest players.. One day she is waiting table and in walks Levi, who is this disgusting, arrogant, jerk and asshole and she lets him know she is not interested.. She is a relationship type of girl and he likes "strange" he has all these women in all cities and states; never had a relationship, and doesn't like the answer no. So I was cheering on for Paige until her dumb ass starting catching feelings for him.. She still doesn't give in, however goes home and cries, while he is sexing anything and everything.. and then she gives in.. So the little fkk I thought I gave about her disappeared! She wasn't just a doormat, she was dumb as a rock, insecure, childish and again just plain stupid.. It was like watching Tom and Jerry, and unfortunately even the cat and mouse had more personality than these two! Simply pathetic! Her dad is supposed to be her big supporter but pushes her to talk with the ex that broke her heart? Her best friend, roomate, aka brother is supposed to have her back but hangs out with Levi and other bitches? Like what the fucks wrong with this whole story? Everything!

Thank you!! ☆ The second book debut by author TC Matson, Blindsided tells the story of Levi and Page. Levi is a rising MMA Star Fighter and ultimate ladies man and Paige is a hardworking waitress by day and bartender by night. Both with qualms about getting into serious relationships period, what will become of the man who’s never had to work for any female in his life and the girl who’s known nothing but womanizing, cheating men all around her? For hotshot Levi “The Leveler” Stiles, the word, “no” is not something he’s ever been accustomed to. Especially, when it comes to the other sex. Now with the brunette beauty, with the piercing green eyes and sassy attitude dodging his advances at every turn, and spiking Levi’s increased interest in her even more, could she be his biggest game changer yet? Or his greatest downfall? As for Paige, they say “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” Could giving into Levi be her biggest tryst into heartbreak and temptation? After all, recovering from an unfaithful ex and rooming with a playboy bestie, have given her clear warning of all that she should steer clear from? Can Levi be her knight in shining armor admist all of her uncertainties? And with pangs of both Paige and Levi’s pasts looking to tear them apart, will they be able to forge a future when they can barely succumb to a start? “Paige, I’m not your past. I’m trying to make you my future.” Be ready ladies, part one of The Fighting Series is coming your way, this November 9th!! It has everything from sexual steam, pent up tensions, a charming, dirty mouthed alpha male, and a fiery female looking to pave her own path while breaking out of the downward spiral she’s found herself in. The one thing I will admit that I found myself on the hinges about was Paige. While I did like her humor and cleverness, sometimes, her constant fears about taking a chance on Levi kind of hindered her character for me at times to connect with. Don’t get me wrong, I understood her reluctance and all, but sometimes it was a bit much. Especially after the fact when her and Levi got together. Her doubts, her running away, and outbursts were a tad grating on the nerves at times. Otherwise, everything else from the plot, story line, and Levi was all good and flowed fluidly well for the most part. I’m hoping though that Blain will get his own story within the series!!

    I really loved this book and Paige's sassiness was an added plus!! My only disappointment was the finding out in the end that this book was not over and would continue as I thought I was reading a standalone. I'm needing the next book NOW!!!!!!

    There are so many things wrong with this book. I'm not even sure where to begin, but I'll give it a try. Poor character development. The hero, Levi is supposed to be an arrogant charmer? That is what I believe the author was going for, however he came off as a total douche with absolutely no redeeming qualities. Our heroine, Paige, was not a sassy southern gal, she was a trite bitch.

    Well, that was truly painful. This one took me forever to read. It lacked any kind of depth. Everything was underwhelming. The writing was dull and sterile. The story was boring and predictable. ZERO chemistry between the characters. Paige was unlikable, she was a just awful. Levi was another typical "alpha male" asshole- Spoiler Alert - you have read him 100 times before. There are way better MMA/Romance books out there with better plots, clever dialogue and unique characters.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Paige is the main female character in this story and Levi is the male. Levi - He is probably a bit of a big head, he is a Fighter and a very well known one and to top that he is a love them and leave them kinda guy. That is easy for him because the women fall all over him, but he never gives them another thought once he has had his wicked way with them. He never has a long term relationship and has never wanted one, he is never without someone to sleep with and this way he has no emotional ties Paige is the main female character in this story and Levi is the male. Levi - He is probably a bit of a big head, he is a Fighter and a very well known one and to top that he is a love them and leave them kinda guy. That is easy for him because the women fall all over him, but he never gives them another thought once he has had his wicked way with them. He never has a long term relationship and has never wanted one, he is never without someone to sleep with and this way he has no emotional ties to any of the women. However when he sees Paige, she catches his eye, and he makes no secret about the fact he wants her in his bed. Paige - Her best friend is Blain, he is another male slag, Paige shares a flat with him and has seen on countless occasions how he treats women, how he lies to them, how he comes up with excuses, and her best friend has learned her a lot although he does no realise that is from her watching his behaviour to the ladies. Oh, don't get me wrong he is charming like Levi, good looking like Levi, but a womaniser like Levi too. Paige is definitely attracted to Levi, she is extremely aroused by him, his body is to die for and his eyes just seem to pull her into their deepest parts, she can barely keep her sanity around him, and he, of course, is not making things easy for her because of his persistence in chasing after her. It takes all her strength to keep him at arms length, and she fears she may be fighting a losing battle. Blain warns her at first to keep away from Levi, then he is happy for her to take up with Levi when he realises who he is and a few free tickets to the fights won't go amiss either. Many might think Paige is a stuck up bitch or a bit of a prick tease, but if you actually read the story and concentrate on it, you will actually realise why she is not about to be another notch on Levi's bedpost. Paige has been through a lot and the last thing she wants is to get hurt, she wants more than a one-night stand or a quick fling, and she knows Levi is a man whore, so the chances of anything coming out of her being with him are non-existent, this is her theory. However, Levi has a different view of things. He sets out to prove her wrong, but come on, how many times have we seen a leopard change its spots? 0? I love all the characters in this story, each one has a large part to play in making this story awesome. I loved the barman Mason, he made me chuckle a lot. Ok so we see where the story is going, but let me explain something, this is a fun story, it's hilarious in parts, heartbreaking in others, and the sexual content is sizzling hot, so hot it burns. This is panty soaking hot stuff. This is he first time I have read any of he Author's work, but it will definitely not be the last. Her ability to have me smile, giggle, gasp, and have so many emotions running through my head in one story, means I am now a fan with a great big smile on my face knowing I will love all of her books if this is a taste of things to come. I had the pleasure of beta reading this book, and it was a first-time contact between me and TC, I can truly say that this Author is a keeper, her great sense of humour is carried over onto her work.

    Blindsided is the first book in the Fighter series by TC Matson, as well as my first book by Matson. I was an emotional roller coaster for the first half of the book. Parts of me hated Levi's continued lifestyle but part of me also understood it as a result of Paige's actions. She was whiny and unreasonable; yet I also couldn't blame Paige for standing her ground because Levi never promised anything except a physical relationship without any exclusivity.

I was an emotional roller coaster for the first half of the book. Parts of me hated Levi's continued lifestyle but part of me also understood it as a result of Paige's actions. She was whiny and unreasonable; yet I also couldn't blame Paige for standing her ground because Levi never promised anything except a physical relationship without any exclusivity. So ultimately there were parts I loved about their developing relationship/friendship and then parts that made me nauseous and want to run. Be that as it may, I couldn't put it down. Levi was a character I bought into. He was alpha sexy - characteristics that I love in my hero. His manwhore ways after they met....not so much. Paige's character had a similar reaction for me - gorgeous and sassy, what's not to like? Yet weak and whiny.....too flaky for me. Ultimately, once they got together, I liked them together and have hopes for a stronger bond reflected in the future. Matson introduced some supporting characters that would be a joy to read in future stories. Blain, Adam and Holly are obvious examples. Ryker might also be a good contribution to the series. Matson left it open for multiple possibilities. There were a few editing errors, but they weren't numerous nor too distracting. They primarily consisted of incorrect tense or words, such as you versus your. Blindsided is the first of two books about Levi and Paige. As a result, the ending was not exactly as I would have preferred. They are together but far from visualizing the HEA at the end of the tunnel. I hope to see further character and plot development. Unexpected is up next and should take us through Levi's continued pursuit of the MMA championship alongside the challenges and joys of their newly developed relationship.

Once you read the book and come in contact with Levi .. you will get it. LOL! Levi is an MMA Alpha male bad boy with all that zing in the swing. Yup .. this man lacks nothing. He owns his arrogance ten fold. Levi doesn’t want a relationship but he wants Paige … as he stalks his prey .. things change. Maybe he doesn’t want to give Paige up … that is if he can ever convince her to give him a shot. TC is a new author for me thanks to the ARC and I was not disappointed. I hope we get a book centered around Blaine. LOVE HIM! --- Thank you TC for the gift of reading a great story. Review to post on Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.

Blaine and Adam are great secondary characters as well, hopefully they will get their own story. This was my first book by the author and I was impressed. I look forward to the rest of this series as well as grabbing her back list.

I should have opted for medication over meditation because this book was painful; although I'm sure I'd just end up becoming an addict needing AA meetings because a butter knife to my wrist would have been less painful than this read and I'd be popping those pills like TicTacs. These characters were so unlikable that I found that I not only couldn't root for them, but actually rooted for their misery. There wasn't even a good secondary character. NOT A ONE. Even Paige's father was unlikable. Can you believe that? The only one with a smidgen of potential was Mason, and we hardly saw him so he didn't get enough page time for real development. Ugh...I'm sure I'd even hate an animal if it were written into this book...P.A.I.N.F.U.L. I spent more time using my psychology degree diagnosing Paige than I did anything else, as she is the epitome of why men think women are completely unstable and certifiable. NOTHING about her is likable. NOT ONE THING. And the fact that she was so vile just made Levi unlikable most of the time because he fed off of her moronic, pathetic, hypocritical, selfish, loathsome behavior. Did I mention I hated her? Well, it bears repeating. I am not sure whose doorstep the blame should be placed. Should it be the fault of the author for writing a story that is nothing more than a decoupage of other characters and books we've previously read all sewn poorly together and marketed as something new when it's really redundant and recycled? Or should it be the fault of the beta readers for not having enough guts to point it out? Or have people just become so desensitized that they just expect books to be the same story told over and over again? I'd truly like to think that there was at least one rogue beta reader who tried to do the job right and point out the problems with these horrendous one-dimensional characters. If there was, I'd recommend the author grab those notes, revisit, review and revise this book, since the only person getting "BLINDSIDED" is the reader, and not in a good way. I'd give it zero stars, but it's not a ratings option.

    When you take a breath and take a chance… From the start I knew this was going to be an ‘uphill battle’ romance. Not the story itself – the story was funny and sexy with engaging characters – but the actual romance itself. Paige had been hurt before and wasn’t interested in being lied to again. She was beautiful so was used to being hit at the restaurant or when she was bartending. That didn’t mean she fell for every (or any) line that she was fed. Levi was gorgeous but he also seemed to be anoth When you take a breath and take a chance… From the start I knew this was going to be an ‘uphill battle’ romance.

She was beautiful so was used to being hit at the restaurant or when she was bartending. That didn’t mean she fell for every (or any) line that she was fed. Levi was gorgeous but he also seemed to be another player with his practiced patter. She’d heard it all before…. What was unusual though was Levi’s persistence and Paige’s lowered resistance to him. Paige was honest with herself and him – she wasn’t looking for a one-night stand and temporary fling. Levi was honest about his past and his intent to remain unattached. Easy, right? They each go their separate ways, no harm done. Oh, but that would make for a boring plotline, wouldn’t it? And this was definitely not boring. Levi kept coming back for more even when he was shot down. Repeatedly. “When I think of Paige, the man stands up and since we text almost every day, I’m a walking woody.” I admit to smiling more than once over their text messages. Ahh, modern courtship – so sweet! “He feels good beside me. I feel safe, completed and oddly… cherished.” While Paige’s preoccupation with the past did seem a bit overdone, the progression of their relationship was spiced up with past lovers and their own insecurities providing twists and conflict that moved the story quickly along. A bit of an abrupt ending – I didn’t realize this was the first in a continuing story – has me eager to find out where these two are headed.

    Paige had suffered her share of heartbreak, so when the MMA's fighter, Levi Stiles, appeared at the restaurant where she worked, showing up all interested in her, she wasn't interested. But Levi, tall, beautiful, strong and full of tattoos, was not used to take no as answer, and he keeps insisting inviting Paige to hang out.

But Levi, tall, beautiful, strong and full of tattoos, was not used to take no as answer, and he keeps insisting inviting Paige to hang out. The insistence end up giving what he wanted, but she always makes it clear that she was a woman to have a relationship. Levi could not be more different; getting little time in each city because of fighting in the cage and with so many women around him, he really wanted everything but a serious relationship. But they begin a friendship, with Paige's best friend and roommate help, Blain. Her ex-boyfriend, Wesley, who had broken her heart, was back and wanted another chance. Among trying to get rid of Wesley, work hard and her friendship with Levi, the heart spoke louder and Paige couldn't resist anymore. The only problem was her insecurity and her habit of running away at the slightest sign of danger - and this sometimes made me feel pissed off. Levi had done all movements to show to Paige that he was interested, but she never let her guard down. Until a fight in Dallas he is surprised by her arrival and from there the cards were on the table. Could Paige overcome her past trauma and begin to trust Levi, despite many offers he receives from other women? Good pace. Complex characters. Interesting plot. I really hope that Paige can overcome her trauma and fight for her love - especially now, after that book ending. 4,5 stars

We meet Paige and Levi the day that they first meet each other. She is a hard working waitress/bartender who catches his attention and holds it when she doesn't fall for his advances right away. He is an up and coming fighter who is used to getting what he wants. I enjoyed Paige's sense of self worth and her feisty attitude. Levi's arrogance and determination were entertains and some of his first person dialogue was hilarious. These two spent a lot - almost too much- of time dancing back and forth as "friends" before Paige decided to go for it with Levi. Once they were together, the chasing on again/off again continued and sometimes felt repetitive. I have the sense that the ending was meant to intrigue us for the next installment. It did that, but it also left me with a sense of the book being unfinished. This is a debut work and shows a lot of promise by the author. I definitely want to see what happens to Paige and Levi next, but i do feel like more of their story could have been told here.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were a few things that I wasn't very fond of: 1. Paige always running. I love her character because she isn't like most female characters in mma books. She's smart,and hardworking. And she's no damsel in distress. But she's also naive, and she jumps to the defense way too much. I really wish someone would have sat Paige down and had a "Come-to-Jesus meeting" with her. I wanted to slap that girl a few times. 2. Levi, at the beginning was a little too arrogant fo I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were a few things that I wasn't very fond of: 1. Paige always running.

Levi, at the beginning was a little too arrogant for me. As some MMA fighters are. But he was overly obnoxious, and at times, overly possessive. But as I kept reading I started to gradually love his character. He's tough, and protective. But also sweet, and gentle. 3. I really hope there is a continuation of Paige and Levi's story because it felt like it ended way to quickly. All in all, I really freaking loved this book. It's different than most mma books, and I like that about it. I really hope Adam, and Blain get there own stories too. I would totally recommend this book!!

    Fighter romance is one of those things that is always a weak spot. Always. I hate admitting how much I love fighter romance, it is like hey "I love reading about arrogant alpha males" shhhh don't tell anyone. This was actually a very good fighter romance, we were told the story from both Paige and Levi's point of view. Although it was interesting because Levi's POV was more like he knew he was telling us a story vs Paige who was telling the story through her eyes.

IT was a different perspective but it really worked. Plus Levi really was one arrogant asshole. Sadly, I loved it. Even though I often say that makes me sick. What can I say, I am a contradiction. The story flowed really well and it didn't feel too forced. It was pretty steamy, but I do need to know, why do famous MMA fighters always seem to go for bartenders in these stories?? Hmm, I guess that is a question for another day. Overall this is a very easy read and one that was very enjoyable, there are more books in the series and I will certainly read them.

Once you are hurt in your life do you open the door to anyone again?

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This is the story of Paige and Levi. Both characters are coming from different world. Paige likes her life as it is now. Simple without any problems. She has her jobs, her place to stay and her friends, what else can she ask for? Levi is different. Everybody knows him but the girls remember him and want some more. He is a fighter, he gets what he wants and doesn't take no for an answer. Their paths cross and Paige does everything in her power to push him away. Does it work? Meh, not really. While This is the story of Paige and Levi. Both characters are coming from different world.

Maybe he isn't that bad of a person but he comes with a package and it's enough to scare her away. Will she let him take control of her heart or will she be stronger than the fighter? I loved this book. It took me a single day to read it. Only because I couldn't stop. The writing is good, the characters are strong and stand out. I hope there is a sequel :) 2 thumbs up

It was amazing. I can't say it enough. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

    ARC for an honest review! This book broke me and built me up, all in two hours. I can't begin to explain how much I loved this story. I loved the cocky attitude Levi has, I also love that Paige didn't give in as easily. I know there were issues to deal with and everything was perfectly clear in the book. But one thing bothered me and that was the running. The author knows what I'm talking about. I don't know if I would do the same. Probably, but seeing it written down like that...It just seemed l ARC for an honest review! This book broke me and built me up, all in two hours. I can't begin to explain how much I loved this story.

But I love the continuing fight to be together, the love he has for her. He's waiting for her, he's fighting for her and he's simply loving her. I can't complain for reading this book. So, even though this book gutted me in moments, I loved every minute of it. Good job!

    SPOILER ALERT... Paige annoyed me with her double standards. Flipping out on Levi and getting all histrionic when some s**t-stirring hoe stages a kiss with her man. And then she turns around and allows her ex to stick his tongue down her throat. Not too long after, she explodes at Levi because he goes all jealous caveman when he observes her flirting with his main MMAT rival (he makes the mistake of calling her his "possession" which I would have been tempted to let slide as this was a first-time SPOILER ALERT...

I'm sorry Paige, you're a neurotic pain in the a**. There were times when I thought, "Just dump her, Levi. She ain't worth the drama."
