Darkness shrouds Noah James’ past. Drugs, alcohol, abuse—they cloud the few memories he has and threaten to eat away at his future. The only brightness in his life is Caitlyn Hale. She came crashing into his world the day he met with her father, the sports agent who could possibly give him a new start. That day, he left the agent's office with a professional fighting career ahead of him and the image of a hazel-eyed beauty imprinted in his soul.
Rarely does life offer a glimpse of happiness without snatching it away. Just like he's always feared, the monster that haunts him comes roaring back. His entire life shatters, threatening to return him to the darkness he came from. The light-heavyweight champion is about to face the fight of a lifetime. He can only hope to make it through each round without losing the few things he has left.
I am pretty picky about my MMA books. I love fighters and have a hard time with some of the portrayals of them in books. Rose Sawyer did a great job of making me like Noah. He was not the typical bad boy turned perfect as soon as the perfect girl walked into his life. He still fought for control of his urges when he was with Caitlyn. I really liked Caitlyn too. She was very much aware of his issues and was still there for him. I loved that they were friends first. As much as there was chemistry between them, they fought it and were friends. Caitlyn could calm Noah down and he did try to be a better person for her.
There was a lot going on behind the scenes of Noah's career and the story moved very quickly. There was a lot of information but it was not hard to follow.
I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars. Go get it!!!
