Renee “Ren” Miller was five when her Dad left to go to the shops and never came back.
Left to grow up with a cancer-riddled mother, things have never been easy for a teenager who had to be wise beyond her years. Then one day they lose the battle and she’s all alone.
Now twenty-two, Ren reluctantly goes to find her estranged father. He owns the down and out boxing studio, Beat, and Ren finds herself drawn to the ring. She thrives on learning a new way of fighting a life that kept kicking her down…instead of struggling against the current, she kicks it right between the legs.
Then one day, Ash Fuller, her Dad’s star fighter comes back to town. Mysterious, handsome… Dangerous… Everything Ren doesn’t need.
But he’s got other ideas…
…and so does she.

I’ve found in general that MMA books are a bit hit more miss, and this book was a miss. I think I hated everything about this book. I didn’t click with Ren or Ash. The story was boring, Ren was boring, Ash was boring. I think you get my drift.
I think the only reason I didn’t DNF this book was because I was hoping at some point it would get better, but it didn’t, if anything it got worse. Both characters are pretty screwed up in different ways. They both exhibited really unhealthy behaviors towards one another and could probably do with some intense therapy to deal with their anger issues because using a fighting to release clearly isn’t working for them!
All in there is so much hate and violence in this book that I’m not sure how it is even considered a romance book.
I don’t really have much more to say the whole book left a bad taste in my mouth.
The Bottom Line:
I wouldn’t recommend this book. It’s definitely a no from me.
