Reviewed by Patrice F.



Quinn Padgett is an extreme fighting champion and an alpha werewolf.  His life and freedom are all stolen by a man with ties to Carri, a woman he suspects might be his mate.  Quinn has never wanted to keep a woman longer than a night; his feelings for Carri run deeper than anything heís ever known.

Carri discovers that her fiancť is not what she believed him to be.  She stumbles onto the truth; that the man sheís been with all this time is responsible for the brutal death matches featuring Quinn as the headliner. 

The stakes are high where lives are bartered off for cash.  Compassion and humanity are used as a weakness.  Although he has survived hell, Quinn must keep fighting for his life while protecting his mate.

Quinn and Carri come together in a furious clash of electric attraction.  This unlikely pair connects hard with an audible sizzle, and Iíll be the first to admit that itís dramatic, intense and haunting.  I needed to see what path they would take to reach their HEA.   This human female and alpha werewolf bond is brutal, passionate perfection.

Going the Distance swept me up into a maelstrom of blood, action, and white-heat level sex. The hunky hero is gritty and dangerous, the dainty heroine is fragile but courageous, and the bad guys will make you feel a need to shower.  As the kick off to the Death Match series, itís promising.  My eyeballs were stuck to this first installment.  My biggest hope is that the author will extend things out a bit more the next go round.
