Happy Release Day to Emmy L. Montes and The Last Round #fightforlove
Buy the Book

the last round
In the ring, I’m trained, powerful, and in control.
And that’s exactly how I built my legacy.
For years I’ve trained to fight, but no championship title in the world has prepared me for the most important fight of my life.
Out of the ring, I’m untamed and reckless.
Which is why my wife of nine years has filed for divorce.
I’m done with living up to the bad boy image my middleweight titles come with. Boxing is my life, but the money and the fame mean nothing to me without her by my side.
This fight is for the woman that I love.
And I can’t lose.
I won’t lose.

Review by: Dawn

What can I say about this book besides... WOW she hit it OUT of the park or Ring in this case! This book is so different than her other work that I wasn't sure what to expect from it. But what I got was a heartbreaking fight to save the one thing that matters the most in this life. True love. When your back is against the wall and you feel like you are losing everything you fight to keep it you fight to make it better stronger. That's what this book is about. The way the story is written is one of the best I've seen in a long time. When it seems like everything is just like any other book you get one that comes along and blows you away. That's what this book, this story did for me. A story WELL written brings everything back into prospective. 

5 stars all the way!

Review by: Leeann

This is a story of two people who have been married for 12 years and are now on the brink of divorce.
Julian is a champion boxer. He works hard and plays even harder.. Without his wife.
Natalia is an up and coming actress. She loves her husband and wishes things were different. But they are not.

I think even though they have been married for 12 years, Julian & Natalia are still very immature. They have an idea
of what their ideal life should be like, but they are both on very different pages. Their communication skills need work
and their expectations of themselves and each other need to be lowered.
At the beginning of the story, I found myself wondering how on earth this couple was going to ge their happy ever
after by the end of the book. They just seemed to have so much work to do.

As the story progressed I could see the changes in both Julian & Natalia. Julian in particular changed and grew up.
He changed his behaviours and his attitude. Natalia took a little longer to get on board & realise it takes two to make a marriage work
and that they both had to make changes. Once the penny dropped for her it changed the whole tone of the book & the direction
the story took. 

This book puts a bit of a realistic spin on the fairytale journey to a happy ending. I enjoyed the story and the characers held appeal.
If you like to read about a couple that has to work hard to get their happy ending, you will enjoy this book.

EL Montes
USA Today Bestselling Author, E.L. Montes (Emmy Luz Montes) lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Alex, and their English Bulldog name Butters. She has a Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies.
Ms. Montes worked several years as a paralegal for a mid-size law firm. She had always loved the legal field and found it to be interesting. She more so "secretly" loved to write. Disastrous was her debut novel which was released October 2012. After the release of her second novel Ms. Montes took a huge leap, by leaving her fulltime job to focus on her writing career. She has and continues to write characters with flaws. Ms. Montes said, “No one is perfect and neither are my characters. It makes the storyline a bit more realistic, in my opinion. But I also feel no matter who you are or the life you have lived, everyone deserves someone to love and be loved. I’m a hopeless romantic, and enjoy writing a story where my readers feel like they’re living and feeling every emotion.”
