Product Description

The complete Striking Back Series is now available in a box set. Follow three MMA fighting brothers who run a domestic violence shelter for women and children.

Book 1
Everly
The first time I met Mason Reed, we were standing naked in a bank, surrounded by guns.
That should have been a warning.
An MMA champion, trainer, and philanthropist, but not a man who gives up easily, Mason is trouble dipped in ink and covered in muscle.
Growing up in foster care, I'm well aware that relationships are temporary, and I do my best to avoid them. After a sheet clenching one night stand, I'm happy to move on, but Mason pursues me relentlessly. Sweet, caring, protective, and at times, a bossy control freak, this persistent man has climbed inside my heart, and I can’t seem to shake him.
After saving me from a life threatening situation, he’s also won something much harder to obtain. My trust. But does he deserve it? Is his true face the one he shows the world? Or is his charitable, loving manner only a thin veneer?

Book 2
Mason
From the moment I saw her, I wanted her in my bed.
I should've stopped there.
Everly Hall burst into my complicated life and changed it forever. I'm a fighter, but I had no defense against this beautiful, stubborn woman.
Now, I stand to lose everything I have, everything I am. My secrets are dangerous, and put more lives at stake than my own. I intended to tell her in time, but my time is up.
Everything rests on Everly.
This is the conclusion of Mason and Everly's story.

Book 3
Parker
Hit it and quit it.
One and done.
Hump and dump.
That has been my philosophy on relationships for the last seven years. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a bad guy. I'm always upfront and truthful with the women I date. I don't promise them anything but a good time.
I could've gone on happily sleeping my way through the major metropolitan area if it wasn't for her. The dark haired beauty who haunts my days and keeps me awake at night. Strong and sweet, she makes me reconsider everything I believe about love.
Too bad she's completely off limits.
I've never been good at following the rules.

Book 4
Alex
Ninety- two days. Thirteen weeks. That’s how long it’s been since I lost my love, my best friend. It’s been everything I can do to drag myself out of bed and get back to work, but I know Cooper would want me to move on. I think he’d even be happy if he knew who I want to move on with. The target of my affection, though, may not be so thrilled about my choice.
He’s straight. Or he thinks he is.
A womanizer of the worst kind with a face and body that keeps a steady stream of willing women at his door, he seems happy to work his way through the entire female population. But there’s no mistaking the way he looks at me when he thinks I’m not paying attention.
One way or another, I’ll show him what he really wants.
Intended for 18 years and older. Contains sexual content, including sex between two men.

Couldn't put this Series down!! I was asked to give an honest review in exchange for a copy of this series. Easiest decision I have ever made. The Reed brothers are all strong alpha males who together run a gym for abused women and children called Striking Back. That alone melts your heart. The first brother you meet is Mason and you can't help but love his determination to try and win over Everly, a woman who volunteers at his shelter, who is a strong and independent woman that has some sarcasm and sass. Love her. She gives Mason a good run for his money and really makes him work to win her over. As with all of the books in the series there is not just love, romance and great sex scenes, but there is action and a bit of suspense as well. Mason's books picks up where Everly's leaves off and it too is a must read. You need to find out what happens to this amazing couple and the struggles they must endure to be together. In Mason's book you will also have more suspense as you find out more about Everly that even she didn't know. Then there is Parker, the second Reed brother. Ahhh Parker!!!! His humor, one liners, and all around sexiness is what won me over. His story starts off by him helping Macy, an abused woman who comes to their shelter Striking Back, while trying to escape an abusive boyfriend that has beaten her and threatened her. Parker is tasked with keeping her safe until her ex has been found. In the process this "playboy ladies man" starts to realize he really enjoys spending time with Macy and makes it his personal mission to protect her at all costs. There is a time, or two, where he seems to fail her and her ex finds her. You have to read to find out what happens to Macy. And finally there is Alex, Parker's gay twin brother.Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars I have the box set and I'm so glad that I do after that ending 8 April 2017
By Tonya Allen - Published on Amazon.com

Everly ~ 4stars

After reading the synopsis, I had to read this. I was laughing at the whole meeting while naked during a bank robbery. I have the box set and I'm so glad that I do after that ending! When I read a box set, I like to leave reviews for the individual books as well.

Everly has a great heart. She volunteers at a group home for kids and at Striking Back. Striking Back is a home for women and kid victims of domestic violence. Everyone loves her at the places.

Mason is an ex MMA fighter, now he teaches. He has some alpha tendencies, but they aren't over the top. He protected Everly during the bank robbery.

He wants more, she isn't looking for a relationship. At least she doesn't think she is. But Mason is persistent. He doesn't really take no for an answer.

I really liked both of the characters, but Everly does have a habit of misunderstanding things and jumping to the wrong conclusions. I hope at the end, she did jump to the wrong one. I couldn't see Mason doing what she thinks he is doing.

Now to start the next book!

Mason ~ 4stars

This is the second book in the Striking Back series. You do need to read Everly first. This book picks up where it left off but is told from both Mason's and Everly's point of views.

There are quiet a few surprises in this story.

I knew at the ending of Everly, that Everly had to be wrong about what she found in Mason's office. He couldn't do anything like that.

We do find out why Mason and his brothers started Striking Back. It isn't a pretty story.

I can't wait for Parker's book next. I'll be starting it as soon as this review is posted.

Parker ~ 4 stars

Once I started reading this series, I couldn't wait to start Parker's book. He's the man whore of the three brothers. They are great guys, but he's a f*** it and chuck it type. He runs Striking Back with his brothers. If you haven't read the previous books, Striking Back is a shelter for women and kids of domestic violence. They do a lot of great things.

While this could be a stand alone, I highly recommend that you do read them in order. We see how Macy and Parker meet in the previous books.

Macy is at Striking back because of her, now ex, boyfriend hitting her once. She got out of there as fast as she could. But he's still after her.

Parker stays with her to protect her. But what happens when she is finally safe?

I love Macy, she isn't weak like she thinks.

What happened with Cooper, I wasn't expecting that. M/M aren't my usual reads, but I do want to read Alex's book. I am wondering if Ian will get a book, or if he has one. I'll have to search through S.M. Shade's other books to find out.

I bought the box set for this, but I still leave individual reviews also

Alex ~ 3 stars

This is the fourth book in the Striking Back series. Even though m/m isn't usually my cup of tea, I was excited to read Alex's story. I really liked him in the previous three books. I'm not really sure how I feel about him now. This was an okay read, but I wasn't really feeling it.

I do suggest you read these in order.

I really felt for Alex at the end of Parker's book. With Cooper gone, what was he going to do? I loved how Ian stepped up.

I didn't really feel the connection between Alex and Ian, besides their friendship. They have a great friendship, it's the romantic part I wasn't feeling. Maybe it's because Ian is such a huge man-whore. Like a different woman every week, rarely any repeats. Then all of a sudden he's curious about Alex?

How Alex pushed when he shouldn't have, I felt he took things too far. If a man did that to a woman, people would be mad.

Some things felt glossed over to me as well. The cancer, the execution...I thought maybe there would be more to it.

It's not a bad read, but it didn't hit the mark for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Striking Books! 29 March 2017
By LettyT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This four book series centers around three brothers. Mason is the oldest and his younger brothers are twins Parker and Alex. They're MMA fighters who now run a gym and have a domestic abuse center that sometimes borders on the wrong side of the law. They have a network of bodyguards, police and private citizens help them with protecting those that need protection the most.

Everly is book one and she's the one who has captured the attention of Mason. She, along with her best friend, Ian have grown up in foster care. When she meets Mason, they realize how much chemistry they have but could it ever work? There are so many subplots in this book that take you on an adventure of ups and down, joys and sorrows and even some surprises that will leave you shocked.

Book two is Mason's POV of his relationship with Everly as well as his his story and why he does what he does.

Book three is Parker. Parker is a player, a guy not willing to settle down but when he meets Macy, Everly's friend he's instantly attracted and realizes what he's missing in being single. He's a fierce protector of Macy and an all around nice guy!

Book four is all about Alex and him coming to terms with losing the love of his life. The surprise here is who he falls for and who falls for him.
3.0 out of 5 stars Contradictory and Gay Sexual Content 25 April 2017
By jspence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
i'm really conflicted on this one. First I am glad I got this as a set bc if I had purchased separately I would be pretty ticked that the first one ended in a cliff hanger. I read the blurb for the first book and didn't read any of the others so was unprepared for the final book or some of the sexual content in the rest of them. There will be spoilers in this review so if u don't want to know stop now. The first book was a bit of a contradiction. Everly thought her parents were dead and she received an inheritance at the age of 18 when she aged out of the system. That is not how that works. If there is family money the court would have appointed a guardian but thats just my legal side. When she found out where the money came from she was upset but it didn't stop her from taking it so...hmmm. I thought her and Mason's romance was believable. The sex was very explicit and I am ok with that, it was well written. The relationship between the brothers was more complicated than I think the writer expressed. The third book featuring Parker was ok but the reason he left her was kind of stupid. The final book was about Alex, who is gay. Here's the thing...the book describes 'sex between 2 men'. What it doesn't explain is that a relationship developed between a straight man and a gay man. These 2 are friends. One is gay, one is not. You don't just decide one day that u r going to be gay now. It doesn't work like that. Until they started living together when Alex's boyfriend dies all of a sudden Ian has sexual feelings for him? Eeeeewwwwww. In my experience as a hairdresser, psychologist, person of the world u r either born gay or u decide to live ur life as a gay person bc of life experience. A woman who is abused as a child may not trust men and will live her life as a lesbian bc of that and vice versa but this situation was just so far outside the realm of reality I was nonplussed by it. If I had read this book alone I would have blasted the author for not describing it for what it is and that is gay porn. I'm not gay, I'm ok with people that are, but I don't want to read about their sex life any more than I wanted it described to me in beauty school. My best friend is gay (since grade school) and she doesn't want to read about straight sex. So 3 stars for the first (bc of the ending) 4 stars for the second, 3 stars for Parker and 0 stars for Alex.

I mostly enjoyed this series but felt it could have gone deeper into some characters and it oversimplified the resolution of some major situations. Without spoilers let me just say Cody's situation was one example as was Ian's. All in all a good read that could have been better.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series! There's funny, sad, sexy, tense, and sweet moments throughout the four books about the Reed brothers. My favorite book was Alex. I hadn't realized m/m scenes could be so steamy!
