Take Me On by Katie McGarry
Publisher: Harlequin Teen (May 27, 2014)
Series: Pushing the Limits, 4
Genre: YA Contemporary

Acclaimed author Katie McGarry returns with the knockout new story of two high school seniors who are about to learn what winning really means

Champion kickboxer Haley swore she'd never set foot in the ring again after one tragic night. But then the guy she can't stop thinking about accepts a mixed martial arts fight in her honor. Suddenly, Haley has to train West Young. All attitude, West is everything Haley promised herself she'd stay away from. Yet he won't last five seconds in the ring without her help.

West is keeping a big secret from Haley. About who he really is. But helping her-fighting for her-is a shot at redemption. Especially since it's his fault his family is falling apart. He can't change the past, but maybe he can change Haley's future.

Hayley and West have agreed to keep their relationship strictly in the ring. But as an unexpected bond forms between them and attraction mocks their best intentions, they'll face their darkest fears and discover love is worth fighting for.

Can't you tell? I'm a HUGE fan of this series! :D I'm dying to get my hands on this one. I'll be honest -- it's not my favorite cover out of the series, but it's still very eye catching, no?

I do love both of these. The pose on the first one is definitely sweet. And I haven't heard of either of these authors :) YAY for new books to add to my TBR!!!

Highly recommend McGarry's books. I'm intrigued by Kame's pick myself.

Oh, you must read McGarry's books; they're great! Don't let the YA label keep you away from them.

Oh yes! :)

I really like Kame's pick. Dude all I can see is his abs. However, I'm abs girl. I lusting after a next book in a series. However, I did have trouble deciding what book to pick.
