Product Description

Clay Gibbs is an up and coming MMA fighter … with a past he wishes to leave behind. He has witnessed more brutality than any one person should. Losing it all has taught him to fight for the things that matter.
With no real family left, he has built a new one surrounded in his friends. They may not be blood, but they have a bond. In the center of it all is the one woman he finds he can’t be without. A fiery redhead that makes his heart beat wildly. He’s waited for her … can it finally be their time?
Jade Chambers is a firecracker. A ball of flames so hot she will burn through anything in her path to get the life she wants. After almost losing it all just as it began, she’s determined not to let anything slip through her grasp again.
The one thing she didn’t factor on was Clay Gibbs not fearing the heat. Will she love him or will she burn him?

This book is part of a series, but can be read as a standalone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully romantic in its own unique way - superb! 8 December 2015
By Books Laid Bare & Books Laid Bare Boys - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a belter – a new author to me and I am hooked. Gaining Gibbs will have you reaching for the tissues because their story was simply beautiful.
This was and is a love story of the very highest order with characters that simply deserve the very best that life can possibly offer.
Jade was a super character, she knew her own mind but needed to pay more attention to what her heart was telling her. She is relentless when she sets her mind to something but for a smart woman, she didn’t always see what was staring her in the face.
Clay has a past that was enough to have broken a lesser being, he survived the death of his parents, a brutal act that was meant to have claimed his life too but the universe had bigger things in mind for the formidable Mr Gibbs and death was not on the cards for him that day. But pain has taken root and with no blood to call his own he has forged a new family at the gym, with the fellow fighters.
Clay and Jade have history, he stepped aside in order to not be the reason that she stayed behind and gave up on her dreams, while I think she secretly hoped that he may have stepped up to the plate and put up more of an objection but what they have now is the fact that they are both front and centre in each other’s lives again and neither of them is willing to back down again – this is a love thing whether they are willing to admit it at first or not!
Jade has wanted Clay from almost the day she set eyes on him and for him, well…she is it but can this feisty redhead and this bad ass fighter find their common ground? Can they see that they were always destined to be so much more than just friends?
This was a charmingly romantic read. It dished up characters that were impossible not to love and gave them style and pizzazz that made them just jump from the page.
The secondary characters brought their A game and made me smile to my very core.
A book not to be missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars When is a friend more than a friend? When does friendship include fringe benefits? Author S.M. Donaldson shares the answers in 14 December 2015
By Twin Sisters Rockin' Book Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Overall Rating: 4 Rockin’ ★★★★

When is a friend more than a friend? When does friendship include fringe benefits? Author S. M. Donaldson shares the answers in her newest release, Gaining Gibbs book four in the Marco's MMA Boys series. In this poignantly beautiful and moving love story, Jade and Clay pursue their happily ever after. The gang is all here supporting and caring for each other, even if they are not blood, they are family. Join the fun, drama and craziness that always comes out when these bad to the bone MMA guys and their gals come out to play!

She's a feisty redhead that is determined to never give up until she accomplishes her goal, to finish college. Jade's goal is almost met and she is finally home doing what she dreamed of doing. So why does a certain bad boy have her tied in knots? Why does Jade feel like there is unfinished business between them? She has wanted Clay from the beginning and now there is nothing standing is their way, or is there?

He is an MMA fighter. When he was only a child his parent were brutally murdered. Clay Gibbs was suppose to die with them, but escaped. His family now is his MMA brothers at the gym where he trains and works. Jade is the girl he wants. He let her go to follow her dreams, but she is back and maybe it's finally time for them to take their relationship to another level. Friendship is not what he wants.

This is a great addition to your library. S.M. Donaldson has a way with words which creates an everlasting story that keeps you longing for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great MMA Read 10 December 2015
By MAustin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Gaining Gibbs is book four in the Marco’s MMA Boys series. It was a great 5 star read.
Romance, Mind games, Hot Alpha

I think about Jade and all of her fiery passion. She’s by far the best I’ve ever had in my bed, but for us, we are better friends.

What a mind twist of a read.

Jade is a real “Fire Cracker” and has Gibbs enamoured. He has been bed hopping for three years and has decided enough is enough. He’s finally going to go for what he has always wanted “Jade”. Just when things start to heat up for them a bomb is dropped on Gibbs that will leave Jade in a spiral.

As Jade tries to move on by dating someone new, several WTH moments occur that I did not see coming. Will Gibbs and Jade work through things and get their happily ever after?

As I walk out, women scream to get my attention, but the only one who has it is the fiery redhead sitting in our family section.

S.M. Donaldson does a great job of bringing you into Jade and Gibb’s story. You feel every emotion they do, I loved it. I especially loved the twists, they add a great element to the story right along with all of the characters. You must 1-click this book right along with the rest of the series, if you like surprises and twists this is a series for you. Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars #SEXYFIGHTER 7 December 2015
By Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
WOW WOW WOW! Gaining Gibbs is the first book I have read by this author, and I LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!

Jade Chambers is a firecracker. When her temper snaps, she's a ball of fire that will burn everything in her path. She and Clay Gibbs have been close friends for years, but he has wanted more for a while now. When Jade's life is messed up by a spoiled rich boy, she calls Clay to come and get her. Clay is an up and coming MMA fighter, with demons from his past that he's fighting. He's learned to fight for what he wants, and he's been waiting for Jade for a long time. Just as he's getting his wish, a hook up is trying to mess it all up. Can Clay get Jade to stop running long enough to really give them a chance?

I just couldn't get enough of this story, and finished it all in one sitting. The character development is great, with tons of secondaries that rock. An addicting, well written story line flows very smoothly. S.M. Donaldson has an easy and talented writing style that hooked me from the very beginning, with well placed humor that had my stomach hurting from laughing so hard. She adds in some twists that took the intensity up a notch that shocked me. Clay and Jade's chemistry is tangible, leading to SIZZLING sexy scenes, I CANNOT WAIT to read more by this author in the future. Overall, this is an amazing story that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clay is stealing the show! 8 December 2015
By Chelly - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
We’ve heard a little from Clay Gibbs in the previous books, and we know he’s the next up and coming fighter at Marco’s gym. After witnessing the brutal murder of his parents at the hands of some very bad people, he’s left with a decent amount of money, but what he wants more than anything is a family. And he's finding that in the Marco family.

Jade “Firecracker” Chambers we’ve also met before, she’s Kara's sister, and fiery redhead doesn’t begin to cover her. After some trouble with a cheating ex in college, and some damages caused by a baseball bat, she calls Clay to come to the rescue. After all, she knows she can always count on him no matter what. He’s always been there for her.

Clay and Jade hooked up a few years ago but decided they worked better as friends. Well, Jade decided that…Clay wants his Firecracker. When Jade decides to get her head out of her a**, will it be too late? Traumatic events, debts owed, crooked doctors, crazy exes…will the timing and circumstances ever work out for the two?

Gaining Gibbs is book 4 in the Marco’s MMA Boys series and while it can be read as a standalone, you’re missing out on a lot of fun if you don’t grab up the rest. Steamy sex, lots laugh out loud moments, lovable characters…this series has it all!
