In The End by Erika Ashby Blog Stop and Giveaway

In the End
by Erika Ashby

Release Date:  August 2, 2013


*Novella-Prequel to Moving Forward*

Jake Reynolds’ life had always been perfectly mapped out for him as he was growing up. The only time he ever felt like he had any control over it was when he was inside the cage—the same cage that held no for sure outcome. In his twisted mind being inside that ring with his opponent was the most freeing feeling. In that moment alone he was able to let his perfected guard down and be who he wanted to be. 

From the outside looking in, everything about Jake’s life looked perfect, but he knew that he wasn’t. His whole life had been set up for him before he was even born, and even though it’s not the life he wanted, he continued living it. 

When you have everything you could ever want at your fingertips, why screw it up? 

That was his mindset until the night Jesika showed up at his fight. He knew she was different from the get-go. He also knew he didn’t deserve her, but that didn’t mean he didn’t want to try. Jake had skills inside and out of the cage and he was known to always get what he wanted no matter the risk. But was he willing to change who he had always been in order to keep the one that he thought was worth the fight? Will it all be worth it in the end?

Author Bio:

Being born an "Army Brat", Erika Ashby has been residing in Oklahoma the last 10 years finally putting an end to the nomad tendencies she had grown accustomed to. She's a happily married woman who has 5 kids between her and her husband. She has an insane passion for music and embraces her Inner Groupie any chance she has. It wasn't until the age of 29 that she realized she also had a hidden passion for reading; before then she claimed to have hated it. Six months after unlocking that deep desire she never knew she held, she turned the key to another chapter of her life which has become the desire to write. And the rest is still history in the making.

Dee’s Review:
When I saw that there was a novella coming out in Jake’s Point of View, I knew I had to read it. I had too many unanswered questions. If you have read Moving Forward, or if you plan to, you will want to read this. It was a great read to answer most of my questions. Especially the lingering WHY? Why her?!?!!? Why did you cheat!?!? I was so frustrated before with those lingering questions, and now I don’t have that anymore. I have my answers.. from the man himself. And the end didn’t surprise me.. and if you have read Moving Forward, you will know why. It has the same ending as the beginning of Moving Forward. Sometimes, you know how you just can’t read a book from a man’s point of view, it’s just not written well enough…. Well this isn’t the case here. It flows extremely well. It flows perfectly between the letter and the history to explain what happened. I loved it. I think it was perfect. The characters were already established in my mind from reading the other books. So it was almost like this was a missing puzzle piece to put everything together for me. Now I have the answers. I love how not only do I have the answers, but I also have the excuse. I now know what drove everything to happen. Like Jake calls it, a mistake that turns into a snowball. He really hit the nail on the head with that one. It really did turn into a snowball..or have a domino effect. Both sayings fit perfectly. I really liked this novella, I especially love the snippets of the letter. I give this 4 hearts. It's the perfect prequel to the books.
