Undefeated by Charity Parkerson is an anthology of four short stories starring four alpha males all involved, one way or another, in the Smith Brothers Fight Club. The first story is of Bryant, half owner of the club. Someone has been stealing from the club and Bryant doesn't want to go the police so he went to the private detective next door, Parker. Book two is about Ace and Lucy. Lucy signed up for the self-defense class in the club and Ace is helping her out, but not just with the self-defense. Walt, the other half owner of the club, is the main character of the third story. When he came back damaged from the war, he tried to let go of Alyssa. Years later, he’s still the one not able to let her go, so when he sees her again he will try anything to get her back. The last story is about Paul. Paul and Jack met because of an unfortunate accident, but they won’t let it stop them from pursuing a relationship.
Undefeated is very sweet, and despite being short it is still romantic. And because the stories are short, the problems were resolved immediately, which I liked very much. I did not have to wait long to get to the ending. The endings are also something I liked best about this book, and I was very satisfied with them. It is set in a fight club, but there is little violence, which is nice. The characters are cute and fascinating. The men are a little broken and the women are strong-willed. The characters complemented each other, making perfect pairings. My favorite story is the one with Ace and Lucy; they have interesting back stories and they were funny characters. Recommended to all romance readers.
