Who would have guessed that for two professional fighters, the hardest challenge they’d ever have to face, was falling in love?
Everyone knows that Alex Anderson is one tough girl, everyone but herself that is. The ex MMA fighter is fierce, talented, and smart, but when she looks in the mirror all she sees is an empty shell staring back at her. Ever since she got her heart broken, Alex has been building up walls to protect her heart like she’s learned to protect herself in a fight.
Ryder Cane is the toughest man in the world. Literally. He’s this year's UFC champion who dates models and walks on air, and although Alex knows he’s way out of her league, she can’t help but fantasize every time she sees him in the ring.
When the two meet under unlikely circumstances, Alex is thrown into a world she thought she’d left behind with a man she’d only dreamed of. With the help of Ryder, Alex comes to realize that she may have the strength to fight another day, both inside and outside of the ring.
I am always a sucker for a strong independent woman. I love this book and the characters are very well written. The writer does a great job on writing the plot. It's very action-packed with a lot of character development. -Annie
The idea of a take charge, tough girl able to stand up to guys is awesome and I loved Alex. Yet, at the same time, she is also the same as many others- vulnerable, able to get her heartbroken, and fights against what her heart tells her when it comes to relationships. The struggle to fall in love or not in real and was intriguing. It had me rooting for them as they fought. -Amanda
