 The Last Round #fightforlove

Buy the Book

the last round
In the ring, I’m trained, powerful, and in control.
And that’s exactly how I built my legacy.
For years I’ve trained to fight, but no championship title in the world has prepared me for the most important fight of my life.
Out of the ring, I’m untamed and reckless.
Which is why my wife of nine years has filed for divorce.
I’m done with living up to the bad boy image my middleweight titles come with. Boxing is my life, but the money and the fame mean nothing to me without her by my side.
This fight is for the woman that I love.
And I can’t lose.
I won’t lose.


The Last Round Teaser4


This is a story about two people who have known each other since they were kids.
Their relationship progresses and they become husband and wife, but somewhere along the way, with careers who took them in different paths, their once solid partnership starts to crumble.
The love between Julian and Natalia is definitely there, but there are times when some things are hard to forget and others are hard to live with.

I liked Natalia and how strong she was throughout the ordeal. She loved Julian without a doubt, but she loved herself more and knew she deserved so much more from him than the crumbs he was throwing at her.
Julian knows he made mistakes, one specifically unforgivable to some, but he's willing to fight until the end for the woman he loves and hopes that she is able to pardon his transgressions.
Their road to coming back together is not an easy one and it doesn't happen overnight, which for me made the story more believable. There is a certain part where Natalia gets an answer to something she's been wondering, that broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I felt her pain and I really wanted to smack Julian hard outside the head.

This is a well put together story of the real life struggles that some couples face and the road  to salvation to those who are strong enough to forgive and start again.
This is a novella so it's a quick read for those who love stories about second chance love.

Ms. Montes worked several years as a paralegal for a mid-size law firm. She had always loved the legal field and found it to be interesting. She more so "secretly" loved to write. Disastrous was her debut novel which was released October 2012. After the release of her second novel Ms. Montes took a huge leap, by leaving her fulltime job to focus on her writing career. She has and continues to write characters with flaws. Ms. Montes said, “No one is perfect and neither are my characters. It makes the storyline a bit more realistic, in my opinion. But I also feel no matter who you are or the life you have lived, everyone deserves someone to love and be loved. I’m a hopeless romantic, and enjoy writing a story where my readers feel like they’re living and feeling every emotion.”
