Review: Knocked Out by Ty Langston

Fresh out of Grad School, Hayley Monroe gets the chance of a lifetime when her boss gives her the opportunity to produce and host a reality series on finding MMA’s “Next Great Hope”.

Enter former MMA contender Evan Bates. His sudden re-appearance into the sport after a mysterious five year absence not only raises eyebrows, but also temps both in and out of the Octagon.

Can Hayley keep everything in check? Or will she be Knocked Out?

*I received a copy from through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

I've already made the suggestion to NetGalley for a display of the amount of pages for each book or a checkbox to say if a book is novel or novella length. They've taken it in advisement and I'm crossing my fingers for an update soon.

The reason I'm telling you this is because overall I'm not a fan of novella's. I usually only enjoy them if they're part of a series (of novels). Therefore unfortunately I didn't really enjoy Knocked Out. Don't get me wrong, sometimes I am able to look past the length, if we at least get a story. This wasn't the case here.

The whole setup seemed interesting, which is why I requested a review copy. But that's all there was to it, an interesting idea that lacked development. While reading this story I felt that two thirds of the story was missing. It jumps from one point to the next. The writing on its own was good and it flowed well, there was just too much lacking for me to like it. This story would have been great if the author would have developed it more and turned it into a full length novel.

The Author
As a child, multi-published author Ty Langston loved to read about dragons and knights so much that one day, her grandmother told her to "just write about them."

So she did.

From that day forward, she never left home without her pen, a notebook, and some kind of music playing in the background. Her love of reading expanded from fantasy into science fiction, and eventually into paranormal romance and erotica.

She enjoys different works from George Martin, Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King, and Jackie Collins. But some of Ty's favorite writers are from the world of TV and film: namely, Tudors creator Michael Hirst, and the late John Hughes.

Ty has a certificate in Broadcast Journalism along with a degree in Business Administration. She is single and enjoys spending time with friends and family.
