I never thought that it would come to this. I've watched my best friend's brother fight for years without letting myself go there. And now that tragedy has struck I can't help but be drawn towards him as we cling to each other like never before. I know he'll hate me once he realizes that his world fell apart because of me.
I can't change the past but I'm damn well determined to move forward with Jasmine. How could I not? I've fantasized about her for years. And now with her at my side I can finally focus on winning my first title in the cage. But something just doesn't seem right. I feel like she's hiding something from me.
After all that my daughter and I had been through the last thing I needed was to get myself involved with a cocky cage fighter, even if he was the most gorgeous blonde I'd ever seen. I just needed to focus on my job and move on to the next patient. But every time I saw him, he disarmed me with his charm and made my heart do things I'd never seen before.
After a devastating loss I thought I had lost everything - my belt, my team, my knee. But then this angel dedicated herself to my recovery and I found hope again. I had promised her that I'd never fight again, but I have to get back in the cage to reclaim my dignity. And I can't do this without her.
I'm used to coaching knuckleheads both in and out of the gym. All I've wanted was to help my brother get a title of his own. But after what's happened, I have no choice but to start over. And partner up with one of our rivals, a sexy Scotsman known as the "baby-faced killer."
I didn't make a name for myself in the fight clubs overseas by being a weak man. I go after what I want until I dominate the competition. Now that I'm in the States, I have something to prove to everyone who's ever tossed me aside. The bonnie new trainer can definitely teach me something new.
