Dangerous Disguise (Cavanaugh Justice, dO read for the romance and I really enjoyed the romance between Lena and Gunner They were sweet together but there was also a lot of sexy time between them I enjoyed this one and look forward to reading in this series A sexy sporting hero is a guilty pleasure of mine but I have to say I ve never come across a skateboarder before And Zoe Dawsonelivered as Ramping Up is fresh steamy emotional and had my full undivided attention by the end of the opening chapter Behind this sexy roma There is something very addictive about this book by Zoe Dawson So much so that The Bosss Baby Surprise despite some misgivings I found myself utterly intrigued and completely unable to put Ramping Upown I m not overly familiar with Ms Dawson s work having read and thoroughly enjoyed only one other of her books but I was keen to get into Ramping Up For a couple of reasons actually One the skateboarding aspect was ifferent for me a spin on sports romances that s not common not overdone And two a strong female lead in a non typical profession Helena as a sports agent was exactly as strong and sure as you want and expect her to be I loved most everything about her especially her Command Performance dedication to winning only when it MEANS something On the other hand while I liked Gunner a greateal I Loveknot (Welcome to Tyler, did find him to be a littleimmature That s perhaps not the right word but there were times when his actions and hisialogue made him feel substantially younger than his 24 years and for me it skewed the balance of the otherwise wonderful relationship he shared with Lena Yes Gunner was sexy kind a good man with a The Perfect Blend delectable bad boy streak but he felt so much younger that at times my instinct was to mother him rather than lust after him Having said that when those moments passed and Gunner and Lena were together on eual footing they were utterly perfect Their connection and chemistry was palpable and rooting for them was a no brainier Much like the solution to their problem It seemed to me that part of the conflict in this book could have been easily resolved and I would have liked to have seen that because as it stands the hands off aspect of Lena s relationship with Gunner felt a little like an after thought the focus staying rightly on Gunner s coachfather However I can t and won teny that this is an exceptionally well written and engaging book It is jam packed with skateboarding terminology there s a glossary of terms in the back thank goodness so if etail isn t your thing you might need to skip this one If though you like a vividly painted picture and healthy ose of realism with your romance Ramping Up is one you won t want to miss Just like I Wanted (Sealed with a Kiss don t want to miss the upcoming books in this series The secondary characters here were likeable and created a strong basis for an ongoing series In particular the core group of female agents seem like a lively and fun bunch each with their own talents and issues and I am excited toive into the next story hopefully Trista s and see what Ms Dawson has planned next Beth 35 stars 35 starsRamping Up was a good readI enjoyed the storyline the writing was good and the Rayuan Sang Bos [Seduced By the Boss] drama was just enough to keep you turning the pages This was the first book I ve read involving the skating world and I was happily surprised with how much I enjoyed itI found both Helena and Gunner likeable sweet fun and relatable They had a strong connectionattraction that left you nooubt these two were meant for each other Loved watching their romance Bachelor to the Rescue (Home to Dover, develop My heart went out to Gunner and everything he went through in trying to protect his mother and sister He had a beautiful heart and it made me happy to see him find love and support from not only Helena but everyone associated with Mavrick AllstarsOverall Ramping Up was an emotional heartfelt romance that will bring out all the feelsWhat a great start to the Maverick Allstars series looking forward to the next book Impact Zone coming December 13th Pre Order Impact Zone

straight away with the first book in her new Mavrick Allstars series Ramping Up is a story that grips you from the beginning and keeps you engaged until the endGunner Smith s story had to potential to head into the OTT category with the familialrama he is ealing with but the author balanced it perfectly for me in that it was relevant and not overplayed and was resolved without being ragged out too much Bearing in mind the plethora of sports themed romances out there at the dragged out too much Bearing in mind the plethora of sports themed romances out there at the another positive with Ramping Up is that it Whispers Of The Heart didn t feel like I was reading a re hash of another story it was vibrant and uniue Zoe really has excelled in offering up a slightlyifferent story in what is a flooded market right nowYou re Darth Vader in ChanelThe other massive positive about the book for me was Helena Mavrick low The Dukes Gamble drama high sass and plenty of confidence This is a young woman who knows what she wants and isn t afraid to go after it Even if ultimately her attraction to Gunner may cause epic problemsown the line The sexual tension between these two was Off The Charts

Ramping Up Mavrick Allstars #1Slick s review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews45 starsI can t seem to keep away from new adult books or sports romances and in Ramping Up author Zoe Dawson gives us a look into the world of profession skateboarding which was interesting considering I read another ARC this week with a semi pro skateboarder so I was already up on my skateboarding lingo from that book but fear not Ms Dawson includes a glossary of skateboarding terms in the back of this book One thing that really stuck out to me about Ramping Up was the epth of this story and that of the hero what could have been a typical young over indulged pro athlete finding his match became a story about survival following your Major Westhavens Unwilling Ward dream letting go learning to trust your instincts and yes falling in love I have to say this story really surprised me in a good way and I loved every minute of itAt first I wasn t sure how I was going to like Gunner his attitude hisemeanor and his swarminess made me want to kick him in the junk I had a feeling there was something behind it all and fortunately it was revealed uite uickly why he had such a chip on his shoulder and such a back off vibe This revelation also made me a bit sick and gave me all the understanding I needed to embrace his character Honestly Gunner was one of the most selfless and caring heroes I ve seen in a while and it was refreshing especially for someone his age but given his background Gunner was way older and wiser than his 24 physical yearsI really loved Helena s Lena sassiness and the fact that she was smart and edicated not only to her job but to the clients she represents as a sports agent She was smart and savvy and I admired that she the other agents and her ad as owner of Maverick Allstars were committed to How to Disappear doing what was best for their clients at all times More than that I loved that she saw to Gunner and wasetermined to help him find himself and the happiness he Act Like You Know deservedThis story moved at a uick pace yet itidn t seemed rushed I liked that there was never lull in the story and each word each scene each character added A Guide to Americas Sex Laws depth and emotion to the overall story Gunner and Lena were fantastic characters but the secondary characters were eually well written and interesting I loved the family feel of this group who took Gunner under their wing to propel him into a national skateboard championWhile Lena and Gunner tried to ignore their chemistry for the good of their working relationship it was impossible which led to manyifferent types of problems For the most part Gunner remained calm and stoic and Lena stood proud and fearless throughout this book It was hard watching Gunner endure everything that went on in his life in flashbacks and currently but Lena s understanding caring and comfort made me love her character even Every once in awhile a book really surprises me and that s the case with Ramping Up I went in with very little expectations and came out with an appreciation for this new to me author Well written with a fresh voice interesting characters and an intriguing plot I loved this bookReview copy provided for an honest review Pro surfer Gunner Smith is tiredTired of the pressure to stay at the top of his gameTired of his father coach s alcohol fueled rageTired of the lies and manipulation of his scheming managerTired of it allLittle oes he know that a night spent skateboarding with friends A night spent indulging in the one thing that sets him free Will be the one night that will catapult him to the that sets him free Will be the one night that will catapult him to the of the extreme sporting world Putting him face to face with both his greatest reams and the one woman who could prove to be his eepest esire Ramping Up the first title of the Maverick All Stars series introduces readers to the high stakes game of professional skateboarding A sport where one wrong move can be your
last while one 
While one one can make you a starBecause leading man Gunner Smith is written as such a A Village with My Name: A Family History of China's Opening to the World down to earth guy and because his rise to fame is as much of a surprise to him as to the reader It is very easy to attach one s self to his emotional gravy train from the book s beginningWhen the back story involving his now strained relationship with his afore mentionedomineering and abusive alcoholic father and sleazy manger are taken into account Readers have no choice but to be sold Hook line and sinkerThe story really starts to get interesting however when Helena Lena Mavrick enters the picture Daughter of the famed Noah Maverick CEO and owner of Maverick All Stars One of the most respected sports talent agencies in the worldHelena is a woman with no illusions about her need to make her mark in what for so long has been solely both her father s business and a man s worldEager to try her hand at shaping and molding what promises to be a stellar career for Gunner Helena is in no way prepared for the attraction that she feels for himAn attraction that thankfully author Zoe Dawson allows her audience to explore very early in this bookThis is far from a case of sex ruling the ay howeverMs Dawson is very careful to maintain a very healthy balance between sport sex and ramaWhat readers are sure to become most enchanted with in very short order Is the incredible amount of Anyone detail that Ms Dawson puts into her representation of skateboardingGoing so far as to include a glossary of terms at the back of the book She leaves no stone unturned in her effort to make this story a truly visceral experienceThe romantic element here is first rate With each person giving the other just what they need The sex is both hot and tender But it s the chemistry that these two share outside of the bedroom that makes the pages sizzleThe effort that these two put into trying to keep their relationship under wrapsclearly wastedThough an annoyance to be sure Said hide and hugoes very little to etract from the general appeal of their budding infatuationThe thing about this awesome story that may give readers a bit of a pause The fact that certain aspects of both Gunner s character and his story read considerably younger than his 24 yearsAs such there are uite a few times when his character becomes very hard to efine in the reader s mind A Boggs distraction which works to keep this read just a breath away from perfection Ramping Up is an adrenali.

follow itReviewer s Note Ramping Up is the first book in a series Because subseuent books have yet to be published I can not say with certainty in what order it is to be readI was provided was a review copy of this work in exchange for the unbiased review given I received the ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review and I have to say I really enjoyed it it was the first book I read by this author and based on the writing style I will Albert Camus definitely go back to check out her other work not to mention that I simply cannot wait to get my hands on the next installment of this series I ve been reading a lot of new authors for me lately and I am than pleased that the majority of them is just like in this case very good so many awesome new books that I can add to my always growing BookMountain so how about I tell you a bit about the book itself Gunner and Lena are both in their middle twenties Lena is a sports agent working in the company founded by her father a big and very famous company I have to add Gunner is an ex surfer wondering what he llo next when Lena approaches him with an offer to represent him as a skateboarder after a video of him Bitter Choices doing tricks has gone viral there is of course much as to why she in particular wants to sign him but Ion t want to spoil you anything so that s all the Bill Veecks Crosstown Classic details you ll get from me Lena is thisetermined and hard working woman who thinks she has everything figured out that is of course until she meets Gunner two years younger than her his life was much Blood, Milk, Ink, Gold darker and complicated and still is full of familyrama he s used to people leaving him and always being alone when they meet there s Mikhail Bakhtin definitely attraction between tham but because of their professional relationship they can to anything about it or should I say they shouldn t because we all know that they will get together at some point rules be Carnival damned what I love about them is how they influence each other because not only Lena changed Gunner showing him how big of aifference one person standing by your side can make but it works also the other way around Gunner changed Lena as well showing her that there s to life than winning the only problem I had with them is that they had to hide for so long I mean I Citizens and Paupers do get why they had too it it s just something I am not a fan in books in general Besides our main couple we have a bunch of very interesting secondary characters that I absolutely can t wait to read about I Bargaining for Brooklyn definitely have a wish about the heroine of the second book coughs Trista coughs she and Hannah are Lena s best friends and co workers in Mavrick Allstars company they are both such entertaining characters and I am really hoping both of them will get their stories but Trista caught my eye and my fingers are crossed that I will be able to read about her soon there were of course much Lena s father his friend Max just to name a few but I really think that it would be better if youiscover them along the way on your own especially since a lot of them are connected to things I can t tell you about I know I know sorry for being a tease but spoilers I really enjoyed this book because know I know sorry for being a tease but spoilers I really enjoyed this book because the great writing style it was a very uick read for me I loved the story of Gunner and Lena even so because of the 2 POVs it s always a plus for me in books when I can get inside the heads of both main characters and it was Come In and Hear the Truth done very well in this case you could actually see theifference between Lena and Gunner without thinking all the time wait which point of view I m reading now I see a lot of potential in this series and I m very curious to see what s gonna happen in the future stories hopefully we ll get a little glimpses of this couple in them I adored their story and it had such a wonderful ending with a very cute epilogue so be sure to go give it a shot XOXOA NetGalley provided a copy of the ARC in exchange for an honest reviewRamping Up by Zoe

all costs Ramping Up Critical Teaching and Everyday Life delves into the realistic world of sports agents and gives the reader a glimpse into the challenges an athlete may face The secondary characters addepth as well Wi Professional SKATEBOARDING IS NOT SOMETHING I HAVE READ ABOUT BEFORE is not something I have read about before a romance novel typically the athletes are football players hockey players baseball players or even basketball players but I have to say that I was intrigued when I read the book synopsis especially since he was going from being a professional surfer to a professional skateboarder Gunner was a complex character he had a lot going on in his life and most people idn t know what was happening in his home His story will pull at your heartstrings for such a young man he has made so many life altering ecisions But now that his secret passion has been revealed through a video someone took of him things are changing again and this may be the biggest ecision of his life I liked the chemistry between Lena and Gunner and the overall story was a good one that took me on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster ride This is the first book in the Mavrick Allstars Series and I look forward to Impact Zone which will be Trista and Falcon s story I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I reuested from Random House Publishing Group Loveswept through Netgalley I m not a big fan of surfing or skateboarding it s just not my thing so some of this book was a bit hard for me to understand That being said I like Ur year old surfer caught ripping it in a viral skateboarding video Signing him would be a huge win and his marketing appeal isn’t the only thing that makes Lena’s heart skip a beat Trouble is fraternizing with the client is against company policy Professional surfer Gunner Smith lives under the absolute control of his coach until he takes the ultimate risk and starts over as a skateboarder Gunner swore he wouldn’t give up his freedom again but Lena’s out of ,
