“Melody Dylan is searching for a second chance. She has recently escaped an abusive relationship and now she is making a new start in a new town. Overwhelmed by the generosity of strangers, she really feels Garnet is the town for her. A simple act of giving someone pie on Thanksgiving changes her life forever.
Clay Powers is a famous Ultimate Fighting Champ. He has grown up his entire life in the town of Garnet and even though he’s famous, he’s just a home town boy at heart. Taken back by the kindness of a waitress, Clay takes an immediate interest in Melody. Her smile seems to captivate him...among other things.
This is a perfect love story. Watching two emotionally wounded people find love and happiness in each other...what better way to spend your afternoon. I loved watching the connection grow and build between them. The protectiveness and selflessness of Clay was amazing, he really did wear his heart right out in the open. The passion was volatile and the scenes hot and steamy. Defying the Odds was a wonderful book to warm your heart on a cold winters’ day.
