unDefeated by J.C. Valentine Blog Tour

Spencer Bradley ruins everything he touches. Addicted to gambling, he’s lied, cheated, and stolen to get what he wants. Now, in order to protect those he cares for, he’s keeping his distance. Rehab’s taught him a lot, but when his time runs out and he finds himself with nowhere to turn, he seeks help from the one person he’s capable of destroying.

Olivia Carter fell in love the day she met Spencer Bradley. Despite him being responsible for the downfall of his best friend’s career and landing himself in rehab, she can’t bring herself to stay away—even if it means risking her own recovery.

*Note* While this book is a part of the Wayward Fighters series, unDefeated can be read as a standalone.

Olivia awoke bathed in an incredible heat all along her backside. It reminded her of days when she and Ally would spend time together lying out poolside on their beach towels while the summer sun baked them a nice golden brown.

More comfortable than ever, she burrowed deeper into the pillow, hoping sleep would reclaim her so she wouldn’t have to get up. She wasn’t ready to leave the bed yet.

That’s when she felt the mattress shift, and she realized she wasn’t in her bed. The heat grew more intense as Spencer’s body curved against hers, jamming a rock hard erection into her lower back.

She wiggled, trying to inch away, but his heavy arm draped over her, holding her in place.

And wedging that stiff member along the crease of her buttocks and between her thighs.

The feel of it there, tucked up against her body, made her shiver with desire. It had been so long since they’d been together that way. She missed the feel of his body against hers. Missed the feel of it pressing in deep, the way he masterfully played her into a frenzy of absolute bliss.

Instead of moving away, she found her hips pressing back, seeking more contact. The subtle movement of her hips against his pulled a sleepy moan from him, and she paused, waiting to see if he’d woken up. When he didn’t make any further sounds or moves, she pushed back again…and felt the head of his cock burst through the opening of his boxers.

The feel of his hard flesh between her legs caused a ripple of sensation to move through her, settling into a throbbing ache between her legs. Biting her lip, she continued the steady motion until the small beads of precum that leaked from his tip created a slick glide. This time, she moaned.

It was a small, keening sound that barely left her lips, but in the absolute quiet of the room, it might as well have been an alarm.

She knew she should stop. She had no idea if Spencer even wanted this. He was still sleeping, which meant she was taking advantage of him. She was too ashamed to admit that even that wasn’t enough to make her stop what she was doing. It felt too good, the pleasure too much for her to abandon. She needed this. With him.

She needed to feel close to him again, the way they used to be, and sex felt like a really good start in that direction. There was nothing that could bring a couple closer than that. In the right situation, sex stripped away all inhibitions, all masks, and created a kind of soul-baring intimacy that had the power to solidify relationships.

That’s what this felt like to her, a move toward solidifying them as a couple. She wanted to strip away the walls between them and bring them closer together, creating an unbreakable bond.

Spencer’s arm tightened, crushing against her ribcage. As she rocked her hips faster, rubbing his cock against her soaked panties, his breathing deepened, gusting against the back of her neck where he’d buried his face.

She wasn’t sure if he was awake now, but she couldn’t imagine anyone sleeping through this. Her body was on fire, her insides an inferno of pleasure so profound, her eyes crossed beneath her closed lids.

She wasn’t sure how much longer she could keep this up, but as her legs began to tremble and her muscles shook with her building orgasm, she managed to tap into her last vestiges of energy. It was just enough to get her to the edge, and when she felt Spencer’s cock swell between her thighs and his pained moan as he spilled against her flesh, she came—hard.

“Oh, God, yes,” Olivia cried out, gripping the blanket as her muscles clenched down hard. The orgasm felt as if it lasted forever, rather than mere seconds, and left her gasping for breath.

She was still trying to collect herself when she was forced to her back. Rolling on top of her, Spencer split her legs open to accommodate his larger frame and his eyes, a stormy blue, bored into hers.

“That was the hottest fucking thing I’ve ever seen.”

Caught red-handed—or wet-thighed—Olivia blushed furiously.

“Don’t go getting embarrassed on me,” Spencer admonished. “I like that you used me. Getting you off is my pleasure.” With a wan smile, he reached between them and ran his fingers through his semen. “Obviously.”

“Spence,” she complained, covering her eyes with her hand.

“No, baby. Don’t hide from me.” Pulling her hand away, Spencer forced her to look at him. “As much as I enjoyed making a mess out of you, I want to do this right. The next time you come, it’s going to be around my dick.”

He rocked his hips against hers, and she was shocked to realize that he was still hard. Looked like that time apart had some benefits after all.

“That’s right, Liv,” Spencer crooned, his voice low and rough and dark with promise. “I’m going to fuck you hard, and this time, it’s my name you’ll be shouting.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I read this as a standalone not reading anything else in this series. I do wish I knew more of Spencer's back story, it was explained but not the full level of his issue with gambling and what Jami did for him. Not having the information didn't hinder the read at all but just my personal opinion to read all books in the series first.

Two people with very addictive personalities, can they make it in a relationship? Does understanding what the other person is going through help or hurt the relationship? Spencer gambled, a lot apparently. He goes to rehab to get his self together. He knows he's hurt the people that mean the most to him. Who will be there waiting when he gets out?

Liv has her own issues, but Spencer is her home, her addiction. Can she say no when he asks for forgiveness? Can they make it work? Can he prove he's changed?

UnDefeated is a quick read. For me I felt it lacked the chemistry between the two MCs. There were some sweet sensitive interactions but no real chemistry. Ally and Jami with their limited scenes seemed to have more chemistry between them. It maybe since this is my first look at these characters it didn't hold the emotional attachment for me compared to someone that's read all the books in the series.
