BOOK REVIEW...Defying the Odds (Battered Hearts #1) by Kele Moon

When struggling waitress Melody Dylan gives a handsome, lonely stranger a simple gift she has no clue her life is about to take a drastic turn.

The stranger ends up being Clay Powers, a famous UFC heavyweight fighter. Clay’s large build and dangerous fists have always intimidated. People in his hometown keep their distance and Clay is fine with that. Everything changes when a new waitress at the local diner buys him a piece of pie on thanksgiving. Touched by the gesture when it’s obvious she can barely afford to survive, her warm smile and lush body churn up powerful feelings that leave Clay wanting more from her than pie.

Melody is running from her past and the small, country town of Garnet is the perfect hiding place. With an ex-husband after her and scars from her abusive marriage etched deep, the last thing she expects is to fall for a man who makes a living with his fists, but she can’t resist Clay or the tender connection they share.

Finding love in the most unlikely of places, the passion is undeniable, but Clay and Melody know their haunted pasts and unpredictable futures leave the odds stacked against them.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: violence.

Talk about BORING!! I couldn't even finish this book.  I was hoping for something along the lines of Walking Disaster, REAL, or Fighting For Flight but Defying the Odds sunk ship for me.

It dragged the entire way even with the sex scenes.  I also had an issue with it feeling to much like a 'story' and not something possible in real life.  Ugh. What a  disappointment!  It just did not defy the odds for me.

My Rating:

-Overall : 6
-Plot : 6
-Writing : 6
-Characters : 6
-Cover : 7
