Until I met Millie, and heaven became something different. I became something different. I knew I loved her when I watched her stand perfectly still in the middle of a crowded room, people swarming, buzzing, slipping around her. No one seemed to see her at all except for the few who squeezed past her, tossing exasperated looks at her unsmiling face. When they realized she wasn't normal, they hurried away. Why was it that no one saw her, yet she was the first thing I saw?
If heaven was the octagon, then she was my angel at the center of it all, the girl with the power to take me down and lift me up again. The girl I wanted to fight for, the girl I wanted to claim. The girl who taught me that sometimes the biggest heroes go unsung, and the most important battles are the ones we don't think we can win.

10 STARS MUST READ LISTEN
Not overpowering on the fight scenarios, which for me was good - I don't really want to know the intricate details of fight manoeuvres, but still gave me a good feel for the MMA background.
I love how Amy writes, they way she develops characters and feelings is incredible. I really respect how she broaches love stories that encompass disability be it physical, mental or psychological and still makes the characters strong.
For me this book was more about the love of two unlikely friends than that between man and woman, although this was integral to the story.
I cannot truely convey in words how profound the two books in this story affected me, but they have. I did prefer the Law of Moses story, but I think that was perhaps because I could relate to the characters more readily.
The plot was tight although intricate and I can usually find a flaw in most books. An extremely well executed story and narrated beautifully.

Not My Favorite! Spoilers*****
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
No. I do not enjoy books with dark subject matters. I kept reading and hoping that the circumstances of the characters would change.
What was most disappointing about Amy Harmon’s story?
I read/listen to books for enjoyment and good romance, and I wish authors would let the readers know when that would not be the case. I do not enjoy books with subject matters that focuses on a life-altering events. I was expecting a happily ever after - that did not happen. I couldn't get lost in the story without hurting.This was a sad sad tale of what would never be. There was no great miracle. Moses, the main character in the first installment, was the main character in this book (that annoyed me). The book reflected on Tag's life through Moses' POV, and Tag's POV up to a certain point in the book. The story did not share Tag's love interest POV (quite annoying). So if you enjoy stories that reflect on the events of the story, telling you what took place, as opposed to showing you, then this book is for you. It is also for you if you enjoy stories that deal with a terminal illness! This was not fo rme

My expectation for this one was way too high...
I thought I would enjoy this, since I LOVED the first book in this series...I was wrong. It was pretty flat and I didn't enjoy even half as much. Ugh...a bit of a disappoint.
