the last round
In the ring, I’m trained, powerful, and in control.
And that’s exactly how I built my legacy.
For years I’ve trained to fight, but no championship title in the world has prepared me for the most important fight of my life.
Out of the ring, I’m untamed and reckless.
Which is why my wife of nine years has filed for divorce.
I’m done with living up to the bad boy image my middleweight titles come with. Boxing is my life, but the money and the fame mean nothing to me without her by my side.
This fight is for the woman that I love.
And I can’t lose.
I won’t lose.

The Last Round Teaser4

EL Montes

USA Today Bestselling Author, E.L. Montes (Emmy Luz Montes) lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Alex, and their English Bulldog name Butters. She has a Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies.
Ms. Montes worked several years as a paralegal for a mid-size law firm. She had always loved the legal field and found it to be interesting. She more so "secretly" loved to write. Disastrous was her debut novel which was released October 2012. After the release of her second novel Ms. Montes took a huge leap, by leaving her fulltime job to focus on her writing career. She has and continues to write characters with flaws. Ms. Montes said, “No one is perfect and neither are my characters. It makes the storyline a bit more realistic, in my opinion. But I also feel no matter who you are or the life you have lived, everyone deserves someone to love and be loved. I’m a hopeless romantic, and enjoy writing a story where my readers feel like they’re living and feeling every emotion.”


I received and ARC for an honest review.
Julian screwed up. He knows it, Natalia knows it and the rest of the world knows it. His partying, drinking, drugs and girls have nearly ruined his career and personal life. When Julian gets out of rehab he comes home to find out Natalia is wanting a divorce. But no matter what he says to change her mind nothing works.

Natalia loves Julian but she's fed up with him hurting her. She wants to be happy and Julian hasn't made her happy in a few years instead hurting her irrevocably. 

Julian wants to prove to Natalia that he's changed and Natalia is unsure if she can trust that he has.
This is an amazing second chance story. Natalia and Julian's love started in high school. Most high school sweethearts struggle to last and add the limelight to that and it's near impossible. They struggle in their marriage and life and even go as far as splitting up. Their love story is relatable (other than the fame) to most of us including me. I cried, I laughed and I sighed at the scenes in this emotional read.

I was given this Arc by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
Julian is a fighter who is about to be in the fight of his life. His opponent is not a fellow boxer, but it's his marriage.
Natalia is at her breaking point. She's had enough of her husband of over 10 years and now sees a chance for a clean escape.
I loved both characters in this story. Julian was not ready to let Natalia go, despite her fighting him at every turn. He wanted to make things right and get back the love of his life. He knew it wouldn't be an easy road, but he was willing to travel it if the reward was his wife.
Natalia faced a hard, battle herself, forgiveness. She still loved Julian, but now that her acting career was taking off she had to take a step back and asses her life with him.
I really enjoyed Emmy's message of this book that marriage isn't easy. Sometimes love doesn't conquer all, but if the couple is willing to work for it, then good things can happen.
