Back in the Ring (The Predator Series Book 4) by Brooke May – Review by Jana Teppih

Back in the RingBack in the Ring by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Back in the Ring is the fourth book in Brooke May’s The Predator Series. I had not read the first three books and Back in the Ring is my first read by this writer BUT it will NOT be the last one! I will need to go back and start from the beginning … I know that the Predator appeared in this book for 5 seconds (or so) and you can read every story in the series as a standalone … alas, I have learnt that you definitely get more enjoyment out of books in a series when you read the whole series.
Back in the Ring is the story of Bijou Augustine, a widow who lives in a small town with her young daughter and runs a youth centre that was her husband’s dream, and of Noah Stone, a grieving man that lost his wife a year earlier and has escaped to this small town with his toddler son. Bijou is what you see – hard working, passionate, working hard on keeping her husband’s legacy alive … and in this declining economy not doing too well … Noah is a different story, he looks like a mountain man with the weight of the world on his shoulders … he harbours secrets tough and you will want to ride a long on their journey to a future …
It was a great story with well-developed characters, I absolutely loved the children – they added realism and cuteness to the story! And I wish I had a best friend like Bijou had … every woman needs their own Mara! I cannot wait to see what the writer brings next to the table!

I absolutely loved this story! Ive not read any others from this series but it read to me as a standalone.
This was a story about second chances at love for both characters after loss.
I really felt we learned alot about Bijou but not a ton about Noah, I wish we could’ve been in his head!
I can’t say much about this story without giving the main points away but this was a must read and now I’ll be reading the previous books to read of other characters in this series!

I absolutely loved this story! This might be the fourth book in The Predator series and I read it as a standalone but I had no problems at all understanding what was going on. I believe each book can be read as a standalone however after reading about these characters I absolutely want to read the other books in the series too!
Back in the Ring was a wonderful story, the authors writing was captivating, exciting and entertaining. It didn’t take me long at all to fall in love with the characters in this book at all. Both Bijou and Noah’s stories were really emotional and I have to say I was totally rooting for them the whole way through, I thought that they both deserved to find happiness again after both suffering such loss in their lives. I could really feel every emotion that poured out of them and I thought that that author did an amazing job with them.
I really cannot wait to read more by this author again in the future!

4-stars

Back in the Ring by Brooke May is the 4th book in the Predator series and the first book of the series that I’ve read, however, having said that I had no problem jumping into this book as there was plenty of detail that I easily followed along. Having read this book, I now can’t wait to read the first three books in the series.

Noah and Bijou’s story is sweet, emotional and romantic. I enjoyed the storyline and the seamless flow of Brooke’s writing. All the detail she wrote with made it so easy for me to picture everything playing out in my mind, which made this an entertaining read!

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for their next romance read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Where can I find a Noah?! He’s seriously the perfect man! Too bad he exists in this book that is definitely a must read! Back in the Ring is the 4th book in the Predator Series by Brooke May. It is a part of a series but can be read as a standalone. I have not read the first 3 but after reading this book I’m more than definitely going back to read them! Bijou had lost her husband 8 years ago and runs a youth center in her small town in Georgia. Noah lost his wife to a tragic accident a year ago and moved to the same town as Bijou. However, Noah is also a World Heavy Weight Champion Boxer and so was his wife. Both Bijou and Noah know what its like to lose someone that they truly loved. They both have children, which become their common ground and with the help of Bijou’s crazy best friend these two unite and learn what it’s like to love again. I loved all the characters in this book and I seriously cannot wait to read the other books and any books to come in this series!

Back in the Ring (The Predator Series Book 4) by Brooke May ​is another wonderful story in this series and is a second chance romance. This beautiful story is filled with lots of emotion that will break your heart but will also make you smile. There are new beginnings for our beautiful characters as they both deal with the loss of their partners. Brooke excels at this type of writing and is able to inject so much emotion, wonder and lets not forget the added bonus of a little steam and sizzle and of course the best friend who is an absolute joy and had me laughing at her antics.

Bijou is struggling to keep the youth centre her husbands dream going and support her teenage daughter, but she doesn’t know how she will be able to keep it going unless things change.

Noah Stone is struggling with the loss of his wife and being a single father to a two year old son. His only way to start to heal was moving to a small town and on beautiful woman. But when his past catches up with him will all he has built come crashing down?

This story was such a delight to read that I was disappointed when it ended. I wanted more.

Well my goodness! This was a fun and enticing little read! I have not had the pleasure of reading any of the other previous Predator series books by Brooke May before I scooped up Back in the Ring, but I had no problems at all with understanding or character placements etc., and I really truly am stoked to now be able to to go back and have three books to devour while I wait for the next book to come. This book has a bit of everything in it, from the drama and the comedy to break it up, tearful moments where I was wanting to reach out and hug the characters, to the moments where I was so over the moon in love with them. Every emotion felt was real and raw, I felt as if I was there with the characters a lot of the time.

Bijou Augustine is determined to keep her dead husband’s dream alive, the struggling and dilapidated youth center. Things only become more complicated for Bijou as her daughter approaches the difficult tween years and tries every last nerve she has. Then life as she knows it will be forever changed when she meets the handsome Noah. As perfect as they seem however there is a secret lurking in his past… You HAVE to one-click and find out how this story comes together for Bijou and Noah. I am sure that you will fall in love with them just as much as I have! Happy reading!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Back in the Ring was an emotional 5 star read and book four in The Predator Series.
I was pulled right in from the beginning.

Bijou is a widow who is struggling to keep her and her husbands dream alive, she is trying to get donations to keep the youth center open. She is also struggling with her teen daughter being rebellious on top of it. Her best friend is determined to get her out and dating, when a hottie moves in next to her bestie things take an interesting turn.

Noah is moving forward after losing his wife a year before. He is now working as a handyman raising his son in a new town. Fate brings him and Bijou together when he calls her looking for a babysitter for his son.

These two were meant for each other, to help heal and move forward. We get some steamy moments, the chemistry was great. Noah was great but had some secrets that could change everything for him. What will happen if Bijou learns his secrets? Can they have a HEA?
All of the secondary characters were great, loved her best friend, her daughter had me steaming at times. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it, this is a great second chance romance. 1-click and get started today.

Back In the Ring is the fourth book in The Predator Series by Brooke May. It is a wonderful second chance romance, with lots of emotion, new beginnings, a little drama, superb characters, and lots of sizzle. It is the fourth book in a series of standalones- but having said that there are recurring characters who have had their own book/s previously, who also make appearances in this book (and each others). They really are worth getting to know, too. You don’t need to have read the other three books before starting this one, but they are great stories in their own right and do help to build a bigger picture for you.
Bijou Augustine is a widow who lives in a small town with her 12 year old daughter. With the downturn of the economy she has been struggling to keep her youth centre afloat. It was her late husband’s dream, and his legacy- so she’s determined to do everything she can to keep it running. She begins a fundraising campaign to find donations that will help keep the doors open. The centre desperately needs some repairs and is at the top of her list of priorities. When her best friend’s new neighbour turns out to be a handyman, things start to get interesting.
Noah Stone lost his wife a year earlier, leaving him a single father to his two and a half year old son. He is a broken man, with secrets that will soon come into play. He is a great father, and a caring man. But he has pushed people away and taken a step back from the world. So, is he really ready to move on? What happens when secrets are revealed? Will it bring them closer or drive them apart for good?
I really enjoyed this story. The characters are really well developed, interesting, and endearing- Claire and Holder were a great addition to the story. They helped to bring a realism and believability to the story- as well as some cuteness. And everyone needs a friend like Mara- she was hilarious.
Looking forward to seeing what Ms. May does next.

Thank you, Ms. May!
