When struggling waitress Melody Dylan gives a handsome, lonely stranger a simple gift she has no clue her life is about to take a drastic turn.

The stranger ends up being Clay Powers, a famous UFC heavyweight fighter. Clay’s large build and dangerous fists have always intimidated. People in his hometown keep their distance and Clay is fine with that. Everything changes when a new waitress at the local diner buys him a piece of pie on Thanksgiving. Touched by the gesture when it’s obvious she can barely afford to survive, her warm smile and lush body churn up powerful feelings that leave Clay wanting more from her than pie.

Melody is running from her past and the small, country town of Garnet is the perfect hiding place. With an ex-husband after her and scars from her abusive marriage etched deep, the last thing she expects is to fall for a man who makes a living with his fists, but she can’t resist Clay or the tender connection they share.

Finding love in the most unlikely of places, the passion is undeniable, but Clay and Melody know their haunted pasts and unpredictable futures leave the odds stacked against them.

Melody has suffered at the hands of a vicious ex-husband and has finally moved away to Garnet, so he can’t hurt her anymore. She is the new waitress where famous UFC heavyweight fighter, Clay Power visits. The moment these two meet where she gives him a slice of pumpkin pie on thanksgiving is so sweet and loving I feel in love with this book instantly. Melody can’t afford much but Clay hates Pumpkin pie and seeing as she bought him a slice he eats his way through it even though the tastes makes him sick to his stomach. 
The intense attraction is amazing to read. Clay and Melody are the most unlikely couple but reading them together is so sweet and tender. I love how Kele Moon has wrote the tenderness in this story. For instance Melody needs to save up money and so Clay gets the people who work where he trains to drop in on her section and leave big tips. I found myself falling in love with him myself. 
Battered Hearts: Defying the Odds is an emotional, sexy, intense read that will have you loving the characters from the beginning. Clay is a sweetie and Melody the beautiful woman he deserves. 
Highly rated.
