The moment he spotted Rhys, Asher straightened away from the vehicle. “I wasn’t ignoring you.”
His eyes weren’t cool any longer. Rhys struck without thought, crowding him against the door of his truck. He didn’t give a shit who was watching as he flattened his palms against the sun-warmed steel on either side of Asher.
“I know you’re not.”
The wave of raw lust rolling off Asher’s body punched him in the gut. “I didn’t wish to embarrass you by openly acknowledging you. Now, I see you’re not bothered.”
“Really?” Rhys could hear the sarcastic note in his voice, but his temper wouldn’t allow him to stop. He ran his gaze over Asher’s expensive clothing. “I got the impression you were merely slumming it with me. Perhaps you’re the one who is embarrassed.”
Asher’s entire demeanor changed in an instant at the accusation. “Ah. I see.” He stepped out his hold, leaving Rhys no choice except to let him go, or physically restrain him. Rhys watched him walking away. The confidence in Asher’s stride held Rhys’ attention much longer than it should.
Before Asher could get too far away to fix things, Rhys spoke up, stopping him. “I’m sorry.”
In a flash, Asher managed to reverse their roles. The solid door came against Rhys’ back as the pissed off man went nose to nose with him. “Do you know what your problem is?” Without waiting for an answer, Asher added. “You’re obviously used to dealing with people who are weak, and I am anything but. I happen to know my worth. If you ever figure out yours then you know where to find me.”
Pushing away from the truck, he left Rhys alone and speechless. Not to mention, his dick was now hard as a rock. Holy hell. The smell of Asher’s cologne hung in the air. The accent, damn, he’d forgotten what the sound of it did to him. With a curse, he pushed away from the truck. There wasn’t any sense in staying here any longer. The moment the door closed behind him, he froze. How had Asher known which vehicle belonged to him? It was one question he might not ever get an answer to, since it seemed he’d fucked everything up.

Old hurts, new love and MMA fighting-a triple combo for an amazing book by Charity Parkerson, Unequaled.
Unequaled, book 3 of the No Rivals series (can be read as a standalone) was the story of tortured soul, Rhys and his journey to find love in a world where little has procured in his favor. A bet between longtime friend, and now sister in law, Kerry, led Rhys into the arms of Italian attorney, Asher- the man who would become his soul mate.
Thanks to Kerry’s manipulation and take-charge attitude, Rhys and Asher are thrust together, into a world where macho was the start of every sentence and feelings were usually on the back burner.
I fell in love with the enigmatic Rhys. Cast aside by previous lovers, both male and female, Ms. Parkerson wrote an emotional characterization that yearned to be loved. His story brought tears to my eyes, as Rhys and his brother talked of their pasts and the heartache felt by all.
Rhys exuded lonely, puppy dog syndrome in the world of MMA fighting. He wore his heart on his sleeve and his Achilles heel became Asher.
Asher, proper, well-spoken and also yearning for love, was the perfect ying to Rhys’ yang. Ms. Parkerson developed two souls that fit perfectly together to create a whole. United, the two men completed each other, finding serenity and peace.
The sexual heat smoked throughout the story, was well-placed and spoke of undying love with a heavy dose of lust.
Family drama, fighting, friendship and love- Unequaled is a must read.
