Review: The Fighter’s Block by Hadley Quinn

Title: The Fighter’s Block

By: Hadley Quinn

My Copy: Ebook from Author

BookWhisperer Rating:

three books

The entire fourth floor of Donovan Kemp's apartment complex houses only MMA fighters, dubbing it "The Fighter's Block." Growing up in an abusive home put Van on the fast track to nowhere, but a caring fight club owner took him under his wing as a teen and shaped him into a fighter with integrity.
Now in his mid-twenties, his life changes dramatically when he steps in to help a beautiful girl in a scary situation with her boyfriend. Surprising to Van, she ends up going home with him. He's now on the fast track to something else: falling in love. Danielle is the type of girl that men only dream about, but the two quickly fall hard for each other in equal measure.
When the ex boyfriend proves to be nothing but trouble, Van has a tough time deciding between protecting Dani with legal measures or just bashing the guy's face in himself. The harassment escalates, eventually pulling Dani and Van apart, and Van finds himself feeling desperate enough to do something drastic.
If being thrown in jail isn't bad enough for Van, an undercover investigator seems to be getting a little too close to Dani, the fight club he grew up in could be turned upside down with scandal, and the friends that he trusts with his life might not be who they say they are.
So much for finally discovering the little morsel of happiness he'd been deprived of his entire life...

our thoughts The Fighter’s Block start out with some incredibly powerful intensity. An average good ol’ boy coming across a damsel in distress.That was the first chapter of this book, and it effectively reels you into the story. Such a powerful start gave me an expectation for the story to come. Raw potential pours out of this situation, but I unfortunately found some issues with the remainder of the stories deliver. It is evident early on that the style of writing needed some improvement. Readers thrive on spontaneity, but it is important to create the scenario in such a way that readers will be able to able to process the logic and understand through the character. This was obvious once the story began rolling. The second slightly larger issue that I found early on was the delivery of Quinn’s story. Point of views through out The Fighter’s block were random and mixed causing it to be difficult to follow. Once I had a firm grasp on the this delivery it was an expected transition. The overall story was one that had me captivated, and hanging on the next turn of events. This author has some incredible potential, and I would love see the steady progression of talent in future novels. It would be wonderful to see her excel and overcome all obstacles to create an work of art.

I have to agree with your review so far. I'm only 30% of the way through but the jumping perspectives can be a bit batty. I'm considering taking a break and moving on to something else for a bit. I do adore Van though...so far he is just enough alpha male with equal parts sweetheart :)
