Bri Martin likes her skirts too short, her heels too high, and trouble close at hand. So when big, brooding underground boxer Luke Turner comes into the bar where she works and starts a fight before she brings his first drink, she can't help being intrigued. Luke is everything she never wanted and everything she can't resist.
Soon, Luke is showing up everywhere Bri is, and she can't break free of his hold on her, nor does she want to. When her best friend turns on her, it's Luke who is there. When Luke's opponent comes after her to send Luke a message, it's he who comes to her rescue.
Before Bri knows it, she's caught in the midst of a rivalry between her boyfriend and her boss, both of whom are not content to settle their scores inside the ring. She swore she'd never live this life, so like the one she once ran from. But only by confronting her past can she decide where her future lies...and whether Luke can be a part of it.

Brianna “Bri” Martin grew up with an abusive father and, when things go too far one night, she packed her things and ran away from home. She lived on the streets for some time, until she met Jaxon Young, who helps her get her life together and becomes her good friends. They live together and work together at the same bar. I really like Bri, even if she can be a complete bitch sometimes - and she knows it! She’s also sarcastic and reckless yet also passionate and protective of what’s hers. Bri is a survivor, doesn't do relationships, and doesn't trust anyone but Jax. Then she meets Luke, who intrigues her but also scares her because he’s a boxer. Just like dear old dad! Luke is a underground fighter, complete alpha package, rough around the edges, broody, and intense. They have a intensely passionate yet extremely dysfunctional relationship. This wasn't your flowery type of romance at all. These two are destructive, and I felt no connection to either one of them. Just to give warning that are some darker parts where Bri is a victim of physical abuse more than once. Like I said ....the book was okay just not great.
