Outside The Ropes (Outside the Ropes #1) by Ashley Claudy

In the ring, Regan has control. Outside the ropes, she fights to survive.

Regan Sommers spent her life fighting. Fighting foster parents, kids in the group home, and classmates. But the night she has to fight for her life changes everything. 

Now, she's fighting for money in the ring, and from the first punch she's addicted. Every addiction has a price though, and this one is the gym's star boxer, Gage Lawson. He may come in an enticing tattooed package, but his demands are more than she can handle. 

The responding officer from that night, Anthony Fields, comes with no demands. He wants whatever she's willing to give, and Regan can handle that. She can definitely handle him. 

But no help comes string free, and Regan's not the only one with a hard past and scars to cover. The life she was trying to escape is nothing compared to the danger she's in the middle of now, and she can't fight her way out.

***Reader please be aware: Story contains mature content such as: Drugs, sex, abuse, and explicit language that may be upsetting for some.****

4.5 star read.
I received a copy from the publisher (via netgalley) in exchange for a honest review.
I'm always dubious reading a debut authors book, past experiences where I couldn't connect with the author or writing has really put me off reading debut them, but I always like to give any author a chance and this dragged me in just from the blurb and cover picture and I'm so glad I went for it. Ashley is a new author to watch out for, I couldn't put this book down I love it and Ashley is defiantly a future author to keep a watch on.
This is based on Regan and i loved her from the start. Regan's had a tough life, tough upbringing pushed around from different foster homes and not finishing high school because of it. One night after finishing the late shift at work she gets attacked but doesn't go down without a fight. Luckily professional boxers Gage, Dexter and Silas come across the attack and help her. All this leads her into a dangerous tangled web and the start of 2 sexy guys vying for her, question is will either win her heart

Outside The Ropes is a fresh and different take on the typical fighter story and is a real gripping and raw throughout. A detailed deep and emotion debut edgy novel, I can't wait for the next.
