   My Review:
Unsurpassed (No Rival, #1)Unsurpassed by Charity Parkerson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Aubree has been having very lusty desires about her two friends she trains with at the gym. Max and Ryan are very different, and Aubree can't choose who she prefers, but she knows that she wants them both. They invite her to be their date to an exclusive charity fund raiser at a fancy casino hosted by Drew Alexander, a famous MMA fighter. Aubree quickly develops a connection with Drew, but there is no denying that she still wants a Max/Ryan sandwich.

This book is short and very sexy, but with some interesting twists and turns in the plot that I never saw coming. There is a whole lot of hotness going around here, and Aubree seems to have some tough choices in her life. Even though I was wary at first, I found it impossible not to fall completely in love with Drew. He is a pretty spectacular guy. I really liked Aubree, and seeing her stand up for herself and those she cares about was great.  It was also glad to see her finding some happiness for herself. I would have liked this to be longer and for all the characters to be a little more developed. That said, I cared about all the characters and wanted to see where they would all end up. I was also engaged throughout by a story that in directions I didn't expect.

Leaning against the cool wood of the hotel room door, she met his stare trying hard not to smile like an idiot. “This was fun.” Drew’s eyes flashed. “If you ask nicely, I’ll let you take me to bed.” She shook her head at his antics. “What if I’m not feeling especially nice?” Drew brushed his hand over her hip. “You’re right. You do feel naughty,” he agreed. Holding her stare, he bent closer, giving her time to protest his advance. The door opened at Aubree’s back. If she hadn’t hit the solid wall of Max’s chest, she might have ended up sprawled across the floor. Tilting back her head, she took note of the angry expression on Max’s face before switching her gaze back to Drew. His eyes danced with humor as he mouthed, “Denied,” and Aubree slapped her hand over her mouth to smother her giggles. “Have a nice night, Drew.” Drew ignored Max’s snarling words. “May I see you again?” “I’d like that,” she answered without hesitation. Max growled. At the sound, Drew flashed him a cocky grin before giving her a wicked version of it and turning away. As soon as he moved out of the doorway, Max slammed it closed, focusing his ire on her. She’d never seen him truly angry before now. She laughed nervously. “Are you drunk?” “No,” she answered, incredulous. “I’ve had two glasses of champagne all night.” “Your face is flushed.” Aubree shrugged. “I’m happy. I had a good time.” Max prowled toward her. The hard set of his jaw caused a flutter of desire to run through her. “Did you forget who you came here with?” Unable to think of a single retort, she shrugged again. “I’m young and single. Why shouldn’t I enjoy myself?” Max’s eyes flashed dangerously. His tone had a bite to it when he spoke. “You are not single.”
