This book has romance, sexual chemistry, suspense and a large dose of testosterone! You don’t have to be a fan of UFC/MMA fights to enjoy this book. The author does such an amazing job of describing the fight scenes that you feel like you’re in the front row of a cage match, you can almost feel the blood and sweat spraying off of the fighters!
This is the story of Alyson Blake and Jamison Weston. Alyson grew up in an abusive home. Her father would fly off the handle and beat her mother senseless and then go after Alyson, unless he passed out first. Alyson lived her young life in fear, not only for herself but for her mother.
Jamison grew up in a difficult household too. He ended up getting into a lot of trouble in his teenage years. The one good thing that Jami had was Alyson. She was his one true friend. He would sneak into her room at night and they would talk and snuggle together until they fell asleep. They were a comfort to each other in an otherwise violent existence.
Life and circumstance ended up separating them, but they found each other again in an unusual place. Alyson never forgot about her friend, her first kiss, her first love. Jami never forgot about the girl that he wanted to protect. When they are thrust back into each other’s lives, old wounds and memories still haunt them. They have an intense chemistry and desire to be with one another, but Jami is focussed on his professional fighting and Alyson isn’t sure that she can be with someone who fights for a living.
Alyson works as a social worker. She helps battered women and children find a new life. She has a big heart and loves to help women who are in similar situations to what she and her mother were in. As the old saying goes, “No good deed goes unpunished”. Alyson’s current case has thrust her into danger, will Jami still be able to protect her? You’ll have to read it for yourself to find out.
