Ain't No Other Man by Chelsea Davidson



There is a thin line between love and hate. For Allison Walsh, that line was a tightrope hanging a hundred feet in the air, with no safety net to catch her if--or when--she fell.

Ali was barely treading water after losing her big brother, who was her hero and best friend. His sudden death left her to raise her twin nephews when the man that was supposed to share the responsibility with her went MIA after the funeral.

Kade's MMA training made him a champion, but it never equipped him to fight off the one force beyond his control: his feelings for his best friend's little sister. He's sure his demons mean he's not good enough for her, but he's going to do everything in his power to conquer them.

When the hunky, tattooed fighter shows up on Ali's doorstep out of the blue with a bag hanging over his shoulder and a smile that would make a nun blush, he seems different. But after all he's put her through, Ali's not in a forgive-and-forget kinda mood.

Will Kade prove that he's the man worthy of Ali's heart and trust, or will his past sins determine their future?

My Review: 4.5 Stars

One of my favorite things about reading is finding new to me authors. The search for them can be a lengthy process for my reading preferences. There have been times that I've downloaded upwards of 50 samples of books, only to have none of them grab and keep my attention. So imagine my surprise when I download ONE sample and it ends up being a winner.

Y'all. Can I just tell you how excited I was to see a character named KJ?! Like SO excited... until I discovered KJ was actually a 13 year old boy. I may or may not have said... "Oh come on! Really?!" It had me going back in time when I met a guy named Kevin Johnson and he demanded that he was the one and only KJ. He did not like me pointing out the Kathy Jo was my FIRST name so therefore, I was the one and only KJ! 🤣

Buuuuuuuuuut.... I digress. 

I absolutely adored Ali, Kade, Ricky and KJ. They haven't had it easy the last 18 months since Patrick, Ali's brother, Kade's best friend and Ricky and KJ's dad, suddenly passed away. Their lives have been turned upside down and they're left trying to figure out how to go on without their rock. It wasn't easy and they all dealt with it in their own ways. I enjoyed watching them figure out their new normal, grow closer together and move on as a family unit. I loved the Hallmark feel to it. ❤️

This was such a fun break from reality. Just what the doctor ordered after a week of craziness. For a few hours I was able to escape my life and enjoy all things Ali, Kade, Ricky and KJ. My only complaint would be more kisses! Y'all know how much I love me some swoony kisses! Hehe. 😉

I am officially hooked on this series. There's just something about the small town, the feisty heroines and the swoony heroes that has this girl wanting to go back to visit over and over again. I cannot wait to get my hands on Jess and Ethan's book. I can already tell Jess is going to be a handful and I love it! Haha.

You know what else I love? I love when authors who write steamy books see that there's also a market for sweet books and choose to share their talent with both markets. Some authors are more successful than others when it comes to making their books clean and Ms. Davidson is one of them. I may or may not have let out a ssssswwwwweeeeeeeeeettttt! as I read her "no explicit content or graphic language" in the description while downloading her book via KU. We need more authors who are willing to do this! Don't you think?!

As for my casting... y'all. I. Am. In. Love! What do you think?
