Zoe Dawson is fast moving and steamy contemporary romance Helena Mavrick is a FEMALE AGENT WORKING FOR HER FATHER S SUCCESSFUL FIRM agent working for her father s successful firm Smith is a successful professional surfer who has retired his surfboard for a skateboard Helena discovers this new unsigned talent and their first encounter sparks immediate interest for both charactersAs Helena and Gunner Begin To Work Together to work together attraction and connection is undeniable The author cleverly reveals their thoughts fears and hopes via their individual points of view Their strong and distinct voices move this character dr Slick s review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews45 starsI can t seem to Educating for the New World Order keep away from new adult books or sports romances and in Ramping Up author Zoe Dawson gives us a look into the world of profession skateboarding which was interesting considering I read another ARC this week with a semi pro skateboarder so I was already up on my skateboarding lingo from that book but fear not Ms Dawson includes a glossary of skateboarding terms in the back of this book One thing that really stuck out to me about Ramping Up was the depth of this story and that of the hero what could have been a typical young over indulged pro athlete finding his match became a story about survival following your dream letting go learning to trust your instincts and yes falling in love I have to say this story really surprised me in a good way and I loved every minute of itAt first I wasn t sure how I was going to like Gunner his attitude his demeanor and his swarminess made me want toick him in the junk I had a feeling there was something behind it all and fortunately it was revealed uite uickly why he had such a chip on his shoulder and such a back off vibe This revelation also made me a bit sick and gave me all the understanding I needed to embrace his character Honestly Gunner was one of the most selfless and caring heroes I ve seen in a while and it was refreshing especially for someone his age but given his background Gunner was way older and wiser than his 24 physical yearsI really loved Helena s Lena sassiness and the fact that she was smart and dedicated not only to her job but to the clients she represents as a sports agent She was smart and savvy and I admired that she the other agents and her dad as owner of Maverick Allstars were committed to doing what was best for their clients at all times More than that I loved that she saw to Gunner and was determined to help him find himself and the happiness he deservedThis story moved at a uick pace yet it didn t seemed rushed I liked that there was never lull in the story and each word each scene each character added depth and emotion to the overall story Gu.

Ramping Up Mavrick Allstars #1There is something very addictive about this book by Zoe Dawson So much so that despite some misgivings I found myself utterly intrigued and completely unable to put Ramping Up down I m not overly familiar with Ms Dawson s work having read and thoroughly enjoyed only one other of her books but I was Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock keen to get into Ramping Up For a couple of reasons actually One the skateboarding aspect was different for me a spin on sports romances that s not common not overdone And two a strong female lead in a non typical profession Helena as a sports agent was exactly as strong and sure as you d want and expect her to be I loved most everything about her especially her dedication to winning only when it MEANS something On the other hand while I liked Gunner a great deal I did find him to be a littleimmature That s perhaps not the right word but there were times when his actions and his dialogue made him feel substantially younger than his 24 years and for me it skewed the balance of the otherwise wonderful relationship he shared with Lena Yes Gunner was sexyind a good man with a delectable bad boy streak but he felt so much younger that at times my instinct was to mother him rather than lust after him Having said that when those moments passed and Gunner and Lena were together on eual footing they were utterly perfect Their connection and chemistry was palpable and rooting for them was a no brainier Much like the solution to their problem It seemed to me that part of the conflict in this book could have been easily resolved and I would have liked to have seen that because as it stands the hands off aspect of Lena s relationship with Gunner felt a little like an after thought the focus staying rightly on Gunner s coachfather However I can t and won t deny that this is an exceptionally well written and engaging book It is jam packed with skateboarding terminology there s a glossary of terms in the back thank goodness so if detail isn t your thing you might need to skip this one If though you like a vividly painted picture and healthy dose of realism with your romance Ramping Up is one you won t want to miss Just like I don t want to miss the upcoming books in this series The secondary characters here were likeable and created a strong basis for an ongoing series In particular the core group of female agents seem like a lively and fun bunch each with their own talents and issues and I am excited to dive into the next story hopefully Trista s and see what Ms Dawson has planned next Beth 35 stars Professional Skateboarding is not something I have read about before in a romance novel typically the athletes are football players hockey players baseball players or even basketball players but I have to say that I was intrigued when I read the book synopsis especially since he was going from being a professional surfer to a professional skateboarder Gunner was a complex character he had a lot going on in his life and most people didn t now what was happening in his home His story will pull at your heartstrings for such a young man he has made so many life altering decisions But now that his secret passion has been revealed through a video someone took of him things are changing again and this may be the biggest decision of his life I liked the chemistry between Lena and Gunner and the overall story was a good decision of his life I liked the chemistry between Lena and Gunner and the overall story was a good that took me on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster ride This is the first book in the Mavrick Allstars Series and I look forward to Impact Zone which will be Trista and Falcon s story I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I reuested from Random House Publishing Group Loveswept through Netgalley Pro surfer Gunner Smith is tiredTired of the pressure to stay at the top of his gameTired of his father coach s alcohol fueled rageTired of the lies and manipulation of his scheming managerTired of it allLittle does he now that a night spent skateboarding with friends A night spent indulging in the one thing that sets him free Will be the one night that will catapult him to the pinnacle of the extreme sporting world Putting him face to face with both his greatest dreams and the one woman who could prove to be his deepest desire Ramping Up the first title of the Maverick All Stars series introduces readers to the high stakes game of professional skateboarding A sport where one wrong move can be your last stakes game of professional skateboarding A sport where one wrong move can be your last one right one can make you a starBecause leading man Gunner Smith is written as such a down to earth guy and because his rise to fame is as much of a surprise to him as to the reader It is very easy to attach one s self to his emotional gravy train from the book s beginningWhen the back story involving his now strained relationship with his afore mentioned domineering and abusive alcoholic father and sleazy manger are taken into account Readers have no choice but to be sold Hook line and sinkerThe story really starts to get interesting however when Helena Lena Mavrick enters the picture Daughter of the famed Noah Maverick CEO and owner of Maverick All Stars One of the most respected sports talent agencies in the worldHelena is a woman with no illusions about her need to make her mark in what for so long has been solely both her father s business and a man s worldEager to try her hand at shaping and molding what promises to be a stellar career for Gunner Helena is in no way prepared for the attraction that she feels for himAn attraction that thankfully author Zoe Dawson allows her audience to explore very early in this bookThis is far from a case of sex ruling the day howeverMs Dawson is very careful to maintain a very healthy balance between sport sex and dramaWhat readers are sure to become most enchanted with in very short order Is the incredible amount of detail that Ms Dawson puts into her representation of skateboardingGoing so far as to include a glossary of terms at the back of the book She leaves no stone unturned in her effort to make this story a truly visceral experienceThe romantic element
