My Review

Holy Hot Muffins straight out the oven! So… not gonna lie, so many times during this book while totally lol’ing,  I was also hearing Carrie Underwood in the background of my head singing the chorus to “Before He Cheats.” Tempest Cassidy is my spirit animal, Y’all!! She hand delivers revenge on a platter, while the rest of us ladies in the world sit back and cheer HELLS YASSS! There are consequences for her actions and she owns that shit!  And sweet baby Desus in a manger, then she manages to become BFF’s/workout buddies/friends to lovers with Cage “The Fighting Viking” Erickson. LUCKY! I’ve never rooted and carried on so for a book chick so hard in my life. 

Tempest and Cage’s story is like nothing I’ve read before combining all the hilariously lol moments you could ever want plus just the right amount of devastatingly gut-wrenching moments to pack perfectly timed punches. You’re left knowing you’ve been served an emotional beat-down delivered by none other than the amazing Jiffy Kate duo going all out in this Five Star TKO! 

In this story, told in dual POV (which I adore) we read about Tempest “Em” Cassidy, err formerly Williams  and the hell and chaos she encounters after eight years of marriage, a heartbreaking event and then the pinnacle when she walks in on her husband after the unthinkable. But not only does she walk in on him after the unthinkable, but is literally with her arch nemesis, Mindy Mitchell. I mean couldn’t get any worse than that l. Am I right? Tempest immediately finds herself victim/ powerless to the curse of the “ fiery red hair haired temper” and loses her shit, which in turn leads her to finding herself in the slammer. MORE THAN ONCE! 

Next thing you know it’s a feisty free for all. One anger “episode” after another. I’m talking hilariously unique kinds of a misadventures/quests for revenge for Tempest against her ex-husband Asher and his mistress, Mindy. Tempest is dealing with a lot and her life is definitely not where she thought it would be at all and it’s beyond a lot to take in. Lord knows she didn’t handle it well and living in a small town, everywhere she turns they’re in her freaking face or the entire debacle is being thrown in her face. My heart broke so many times throughout this book for Tempest. 

Enter Cage Erickson “ The Fighting Viking”. He’s beyond hot, he’s huge and just enough of a mystery, if being from out of town wasn’t enough, throw in working for his old Harvard buddy Hank at the Pink Pony (yes, it’s a booty club lol) immediately Cage and Tempest form a friendship. There definitely some Insta-lust on both parties ends. She’s attracted to him but also knows it’s way too soon for any kind of relationship so friendship it is. He agrees to help her channel her anger better by working out with her and teaching her some UFC tricks, while hiding his growing more than friendship feelings for her.

As their friendship grows closer she finds herself having feelings she never expected. But with friends and family offering up unsolicited advice about the gorgeous blonde hair blue-eyed out of towner will she put a stop to something good before it ever really gets started?

And what will happen when she finally gets her anger under control and discovers the deception went much further than she could have ever anticipated, will Cage be able to pull this pint sized punch packin’ pixie back out of her angry tirades and help her come up with better ways to sweat out that anger? Will he be stuck having to admire her from a far while she stays in the clink or can he finally help her get it together so he can just hangout with her and enjoy her goodies? 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐- OBSESSION!! This book y’all. Holy shit on a stick it’s freakin everything! I’m so in love with the characters in this story. This is unique, hilarious, a tearjerker and gives you ooey gooey feels by the end! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Not gonna Lie, I would gladly go rounds with Cage. Rounds in the bedroom, the shower, the ring, the gym… you get me?!?  Yup that how freakin hot this book is. Now it’s slow burn, but it packs suck a punch when it gets there you are a-okay with the build up!
