A Book Review: Smash (MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY)

Smash: A Stepbrother MMA Romance
Author: B.B. Hamel
Format: E-book
Genre: Romance
Publication Date: December 22, 2015
Synopsis:
He's my stepbrother, my husband, and my dirty little secret.

It all started with a mistake.

He was a stranger back then. Arrogant, cocky, and sexy as hell, I couldn't resist falling into his orbit. And then one night, we made the dumbest decision of our lives.

We got married. We thought it was just a game but we were oh-so-wrong.

Cole Redson is an MMA fighter. His whole life is fast and hard, violent and dirty. He's the complete opposite of me, and everything I shouldn't want.

I never thought I'd see him after that. But when our high powered CEO parents get hitched, suddenly we're stuck living in the same house.

He's my stepbrother and my husband. He's my dirty little secret sleeping in the room next door.

Then again, secrets never stay hidden for long.

When I find pictures of Cole kissing me tucked under my pillow, I'm thrown into a world of blackmail and excitement like I've never known before. Meanwhile, I'm trying to balance Cole's filthy comments and his toe-curling hot body with my need to finally get divorced.

The stakes are huge. Our parents' careers are on the line, not to mention Cole's whole life as a fighter. I'm stuck between a marriage I don't want and my stepbrother's rock hard abs, trying to stop the truth from coming out.
I was in the mood for something.. else..  I've been reading mainly YA, and some sweet little flirty books and need a bit more excitement if you know what I mean. When I saw an MMA book I figured this would be a good one (because seriously, MMA fighters are just plain hot) but I was sorely mistaken. My first hint was I got it when it was free on Amazon. I've only found a couple of free books that I actually enjoyed. The rest were so/so writing and I completely understand why they were free.. so I certainly should have taken that into consideration.

It was definitely more of the physical, in your face, dirty writing. I mean, I wanted sex and I, without a doubt, got it but at the same time it didn't really have substance. The storyline really could have been good if the author had developed the characters more or given more thought about the story. But instead, every other chapter was an awful sex scene about how much he liked eating her out and how much she loved his big cock... (etc, etc)

I love a good raunchy book from time to time, (my favorite past-time is reading M rated fan fiction) but I still need my story and when there barely is one, or the sex scenes are really forced, it really made me not want to read it anymore.

I didn't put it down though. This was a pretty short book and only took me a couple of hours to read so I thought I would fight it through and finish.  I see the average rating for this book is actually at 4 stars so obviously there are some people who really enjoyed it. It just wasn't but cup of tea so I gave this book 2 Marks. If you still feel like you want to read it, click the add to goodreads link down below!
