She hates fighting. He lives for it.

Layla’s vicious past drove her away from her hometown. She couldn’t live with all the reminders surrounding her, so she ran.

Cruz Felix found a new home. A place where he could get his head on straight, train, and fight match after match toward the end goal: the championship in Las Vegas. It’s the one thing in his life he wants more than anything, and it’s all in the name of his deceased father.

Until Layla returns home. Her dad owns the gym; he’s the sole reason Cruz is fighting again.

The attraction is immediate, even though both of them are drowning in their own misery and secrets. 

The thing about secrets are they always find a way out the darkness and have the power to destroy.

Will their connection be worth fighting for?

Great start to a new series by HJB. I have read her before and have enjoyed her writing styles , love her cowboys , her townies and now have fallen for her fighters !! Layla and Cruz both have some pretty big secrets haunting them. Layla has come back home and immediately falls into the arms of Cruz. She is heartbroken and devastated and regardless of who her dad is Cruz attempts to swoop in and be her strength. Of course he is her dad's new fighter and we all know how dads feel about daughters so this could get pretty messy. The family business doesn't allow for Layla to escape Cruz so why not give into the attraction because it is HOT HOT HOT. Of course because this is a story nothing is cut and dry. Layla's ex is everywhere she looks and his temper is NOT one to be messed with. Her mother left her when she was a kid and now all of a sudden she comes around. It seems she isn't safe and of course Cruz would mess up everything to protect her because  they fell fast. There is some graphic violence in here not just from the fighting aspect but also due to some abuse. There is heartache and redemption and although at times it seems to be hopeless we do get some happiness. I look forward to what comes next in the series because lets face it - sweaty hot fighters !!!!!!!
