Aiden "Disco Stick" Kruze walked away from it all - money, family, friends, and a successful career as a lawyer in Manhattan - to pursue his dream of being an MMA fighter. When a sexy private investigator shows up at Aiden's gym, he mistakenly assumes she's a cage-banging groupie.
Ryann is determined to haul Aiden back home. She's desperate to claim the reward money that will pay off her father's creditors before the man who killed her father comes to collect from her.
Aiden is done living his life under the microscope of being a senator's son. He's not going back to New York - ever - and there's nothing this tenacious redhead can do about it. Or is there?
When the demons of Aiden's past catch up with him, he realizes the lies, deception, and betrayal run deeper than he ever imagined. Aiden must put his career and his life on the line to save the woman who's stolen his heart.

Good narration and enjoyed it. Story wise it's a little unreal.. How the story flows, just a little everywhere.. Always doubting and all, a little too much which sometimes confuses me..
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Ryann had buried her Father a month ago and she is being hounded by the Mob Boss that she has to take over her Father's $75,000 debts and the ultimatum came to either pay up or start 'working' the debt off. Just as she starts to panic in walks a lifeline..... bring back Aiden Kruze, a long-lost son, so he and his Fiancée can be married - easy right? Wrong.
Aiden (aka Disco Stick) is a successful sexy MMA Fighter, he's very handsome, pierced, tattooed, has a great body and is very happily enjoying a 'one and done' mentality towards women..... until a green eyed redheaded beauty walks into his Gym. Mistaken identity, instant lust and sizzling chemistry, insecurities, a roofie, kidnapping, sex, awkward silences, soul-soul connection and a harrowing pit stop are just some of the things that follow as Ryann brings an unwilling Aiden back to NYC. And he leaves behind his 'Disco' persona to become the clever, charismatic and challenging Aiden..... or so he thought.
But everything was not as it seems as Ryann's life has been manipulated and is unknowingly closely interwoven with Aiden's and, just as they learn to trust each other, people interfere, secrets are kept back, plans aren't shared and guilt steps in to create heartache and mischief. Well, guilt, a Mob Boss, his Mother and his corrupt Father and Aiden himself all have a hand in potentially destroying their very passionate but tentative love story and the results end up being bloody, brutal, frightening and, quite literally, life changing.
The story flows well, sucks you right in, both Ryann and Aiden are strong likeable characters and you can't help but empathise with both sides of the story as, despite numerous hurdles, they are two people who are trying to hold on to their love. Aiden also has a loveable and dark best friend Nikko and hopefully his book will be next. Dual POV's, the narrators were good and the plot was full of emotional highs and lows, humor, suspense, a twist or two and an up/down romance that had plenty of sex and sizzle. Could easily be a stand-alone listen.
Worth a credit? Unbelievably you get an entertaining and enjoyable listen that lasts for over 12 hours for only $7.34 so I just bought it and saved my credit for a more expensive (but maybe not as enjoyable) a listen. But YES, I'd of happily used a credit on this.
Couldn't finish it, the characters were unexciting and lame.
A "Disco Stick" fighter who is whiny and emotional? A private investigator who is dense. I quit after a couple hours of listening.
Stayed up all night listening to this one. The second one was just as good as the first. Looking forward to the next in this series. Definitely worth a credit!
Say something about yourself!
I really like this series. It's hard to find a MMA series that has a good storyline/plot. The only reason I am giving it a 4.5 star instead of a 5 star is because I am tired of the MMA heros always have to be a manwhore, It's getting old. I did not like Disco our hero's MMA tile/alter personality. Which he thought he had to be, but I loved the real man inside Aiden. I am not a reader that likes to read all sex and no story. Melynda Price is a great writer that give us a story with some action. I cannot wait until Nikko's story. I think I am going to like him the most. Keep up the good work Melynda!
