ARC Reviews - Dropkick My Heart and Love On The Mat by Winter Travers!


Countless hours of practice, and enough determination to succeed no matter the cost is what has brought Kellan to standing at the door to his life coming full circle. 
Life on the competition circuit was fast-paced, and exciting, but now Kellan is ready to settle down, and stay in his own bed for longer than a week. 
Opening Powerhouse Martial Arts with his three best friends was just what they all needed to showcase their skills from traditional forms, all the way to show-style sport tricking. 
Kellan thought he had it all figured out, except he didn’t figure in the sassy barista next door. 

For seven years, Molly saved every penny she had to buy the quirky coffeeshop on the corner. 
Lattes, cappuccinos, espresso. You name it, Molly can make it. 
Early mornings slinging coffee, and late nights thinking up the next new coffee craze leaves Molly little time to have a life. Her customers have become her family, and she would do anything to keep her customers happy. 
Even venturing over to the new Martial Arts studio next door, and asking them to keep the screaming and grunting to a minimum. Surely one doesn’t need to scream so much, right? 

With Molly throwing down the gauntlet to quiet down or shut down, Kellan does the only thing he can do. 
Take off the sparring gloves, and show the barista just what Powerhouse Martial Arts is all about. 
Strength, style, & taking no prisoners. 


A super smexy, laugh out loud, yet sweet romance with a sexy and arrogant Martial Arts instructor and a sassy and gorgeous barista. Sparks snapped, crackled, and popped between Molly and Kellan! I was thoroughly entertained and LOVED the sexual tension between these two. The banter was fun and irresistible and oh so GOOD. These two had me smiling the whole time and I really liked how well the plot and story seemed to draw me in. 

I found these characters to be whole, well developed, and just perfect! I can see myself falling for Kellan and Molly, she would be a terrific friend. Winter Travers has got me utterly HOOKED on her Powerhouse MA series!

Dropkick My Heart gets a FLYING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! It gave my heart one heck of a kick and was a fantastic read. 



Life isn’t fair. 
Hadley James learned early on in life the easy path was not in her future, and the past six months have been a testament to that. Losing her sister and getting guardianship of her nephew have knocked her world off its axis with no one there to help. 
She takes the only job she can find to pay the bills, but it doesn’t exactly make her feel like the motherly type. Slinging cocktails ‘til two o’clock in the morning, then waking up four hours later to get her nephew out the door, leaves little time for anything but work and sleep. 
Struggling to find a way to make ends meet, all Hadley wishes for is a normal life for her nephew, and a full night’s sleep for herself. 
Is that really too much for a girl to ask for? 


Life is damn good. 
Tate Holten co-owns a successful karate studio, has a gorgeous house, a brand new car, and the freedom to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. Life couldn’t have dealt him a better hand. 
Although, spending most of his time at Powerhouse leaves Tate with little social life, and lately, he’s been looking for something different. 
Something or someone to share his life with seems to be the only thing he can’t have. 
Constantly searching for that one special thing leads Tate to Hadley, and he instantly knows she’s what he has been looking for. 

Tate just wants to save Hadley and give her everything she needs, but Hadley isn’t looking for a handout from some stranger who watches her every night. Creepy much? 
Tate is faced with his biggest challenge yet of convincing Hadley he isn’t some creeper looking to land in her bed for one night. But will Hadley give him the chance, or will Tate have to take love to the mat to prove to Hadley he’s just what she needs? 


Another FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC read RIGHT here with Love On The Mat! This is the second book in the Powerhouse M.A. series, I have to say this one is my FAVORITE! Tate is such a HOTTIE! I freaking ADORED his protective side and his amazingly sexy body and personality. And Hadley...OMG I laughed with how suck-y of, parent she was, but yet, surprisingly I think she was also AMAZING at being a guardian...if that makes sense. I loved how she trusted her nephew and how well she carried on after her sister died and she became a guardian for her nephew. And when she met Tate...yea it was too hard to resist such a tempting man. The way these two were together was heartfelt, fun, sweet, and sexy. The sexual tension was HOT HOT HOT and the plot...yea I was definitely enamored with the plot! 

You want fun and sexy, flirty and sweet, You get that with Love On The Mat. These characters are full of life and charm and are adorable together. The way Tate seemed to care and watch Hadley from the sidelines to keep her safe and protected was sigh worthy while the way Hadley lived her life was refreshing and realistic. I LOVED this story! Plus the a lot of these side characters have me curious and definitely wanting their stories  and see them in their happily ever afters.

Loved On The Mat gets a SIZZLING HOT FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its incredible that I haven't found this author sooner and now I am SOOOOO happy with this series and can't wait to see whats next!
