In Sly’s Eyes by S.M. Donaldson
Marco’s MMA Boys #2
Kara Chambers plays by her own rules, she has since she graduated high school. Knowing from experience that her body wasn’t one that guys wanted to keep around, she’d drop them before they could drop her. One night, that’s all she ever gives. One night and she’d be able to get the sexiness, known as Sly Webb out of her system. No complications, no awkwardness, just one night. Yeah, right.
Sylvester “Sly” Webb is living his dream, working full time at the gym for his surrogate father and now, a big MMA league wants to sign contracts with them. What else does he need? His best friend, Lox, is newly engaged to a great girl, but that commitment shit has never been for him. He’s always believed in the “hit it and quit it” system. He doesn’t need a full time woman messing up his plans. He damn sure doesn’t want someone like his mother, who never let him or his twin brother slow down her drunken social life.
Until meeting Kara for the first time, she threw him for a loop. All of that voluptuous sassiness made his head swim. Then she came to his fight and followed him home, but what happened next was something he thinks he’ll never understand. Now, he can’t get her out of his head. In his eyes she’s perfect, but how can he prove that to her?
In Sly’s Eyes is book #2 in the Marcos MMAs boys series, I was gifted a copy of the book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
I liked Sly a lot he’s funny and an all-round cheeky chappy, he still has a fighter vibe but he’s much more vibrant and cocky rather than an alpha.
I struggled with the male characters in the first book in this series because they were a bit too metrosexual for me. Sly is just so funny that he can be as camp as he likes.
I liked Kara; I found her easy to relate to and generally a nice girl.
This book is a lot grittier that the previous book and for me that totally works!!!
This book touches on some disturbing subjects and Drake was a disturbingly chilling bad guy.
The drama and tension added a cool edge to this book and I really started to get into the characters.
I’m completely intrigued as to what’s going on with Elizabeth and Huck but I’m assuming there story is the next book in the series.
I enjoyed this book much more than Lox’s book, in Sly’s Eyes gets 3.5 stars from me.
