Without Doubt (Without Series, Book #2) by CJ Azevedo with Review

Without Doubt
Without Series, Book Two

Ava Sterling is tough and the most straight laced girl you will ever meet. Her family and her past have managed to alter her future permanently and she has no desire to allow anyone else into her life or her heart for fear of rejection or further altering. Ava is alone in the world with the exception of the grandest responsibility she did not create on her own but on her own she will carry for the rest of her life.

Declan James is a MMA fighter, party all night kind of guy. Responsibility is nowhere to be found in his life or so he allows everyone around him to believe. Coming from wealth and a carefree lifestyle, Declan gets what he wants, always. And what he wants is Ava. In his pursuit of getting what he wants, Ava in his bed, his plan changes quickly without his consent. Against his plans of being the next hot bachelor to cross the tabloids as he makes his way to being the Ultimate Light Heavyweight Champion, Declan falls in love. He falls in love without hesitation and without doubt.

Neither Declan nor Ava are aware that fate has inconveniently intertwined their lives forever. Will they be able to survive the aftermath of the truth?

My Review: 5 stars
This book was so in depth and almost overwhelming at times. I felt for Ava. She had so much responsibility and didn't complain. She just took things as they came at her, with the exception of Declan James. She wanted him, but couldn't let him in. From the moment Declan saw Ava, she was all he wanted. Probably more so because she turned him down - flat out. They both didn't see what was coming when they did fall for each other. I suppose because neither of them expected anything like it to happen. What happened next, I hated. I know why it had to happen, but just the same, I hated it. I'll just say now that Ava's sister is a heartless bitch. To do what she did to Ava those years ago and then to prance back in a drop THAT bomb on Ava and Declan's relationship like that? Then that bitch just walked away - AGAIN!! I understand why Ava did what she did , but I could also see Declan's side of things as well. I think a lot of the heartache could have been avoided, but both Declan and Ava were willing to fight for what they wanted. I was very happy and contented with the ending. I would love to read more about Jackson, Macie, Greyden, Keegan, Luca, Talon and Bailey. Fantastic job C.J. on this book! I will be going back to read the first book, since I have not yet had the pleasure. I'm certain it will be amazing.

Without Boundaries
Without Series, Book One

Bailey Hayes moved across the country ten years ago after a tragic accident left her motherless. Distraught, confused and just sad, Bailey opted to leave the only life she has ever known to attend college at NYU. Determined to not experience the loss of a loved one again, Bailey keeps her one friend that she made as a freshmen in college. And that’s it. She dated during her college years but she never let anything really stick. Not trusting herself enough to give her heart and not get hurt she was satisfied with the life she led. That is until she met the handsome, confident and successful Hollister Harrison.
Bailey was swept off her feet instantly with his charm and charisma. Six short months of dating, she finds herself moving in with him. The minute she had her bags unpacked, the fun loving romantic she fell hard for was starting to dwindle away as he became unnecessarily possessive and borderline abusive. Bailey insists on making her relationship work in fear of repeating her past and making a haste decision by leaving too soon. On a weekend when Hollister is out of town, she meets a guy. A beautiful charming guy whom she feels an obvious attraction for, but also a unique connection with. The beautiful charming guy is none other than her running partner’s brother. Bailey finds herself in an oddly nice predicament. 
The beautiful charming guy is none other than her running partner’s brother. Talon McAllister has chosen to dedicate himself to his family’s business his entire adult life. He adores his parents and his sister and hockey. Not leaving much time for anything else he has been single for years. Meeting Bailey Hayes changed his outlook. He wants her. He will do whatever he has to do to get her on the same page. 
Finding out she lives with her boyfriend deters him from his mission of getting her to be his. But when she calls and asks to tag along on his vacation with his sister, he can’t help but get excited. When he picks her up and sees her bruised and battered face he figures “game over” he is going to show her how she deserves to be treated. By the end of their first day together alone, Bailey propositions Talon with a brief relationship without boundaries and no lines to cross. He’s in… all in. 
Will this brief encounter without boundaries relinquish her twisted sense of loyalty to Hollister or will she walk away from her greatest love for fear of repeating her past?
