Publisher's Summary

He has a past. Could she be his future?

My son is my life. Nothing on earth matters but him.

Soon I'll have to send him out into society. The cruel machine that gnashes innocence and spits out the hollowed remains of a child's imagination. It's a place I know all too well, considering my past. I've worked hard to separate myself from it, but it looms in the back of my mind - waiting for the perfect moment to strike.

My son, Logan, wants to have birthday parties, make friends, play at the park - all the normal things that seven-year-olds want to do. All the things I want to do with him.

I've put up walls around our life to shield us from danger. Giant barriers to ward off possible threats.

Cora Chapman crashes through them like a wrecking ball. She's intelligent and hilarious, with soft curves and a spark that ignites a flame deep inside of me.

There's only one problem - she's Logan's teacher.

When my past wraps its tentacles around my throat and threatens to strangle the breath from my lungs, I'm given an option - fight for my family's freedom or die as they're stripped away from me.

I can't lose. I won't lose.

My name is Landon Lane, and I am a warrior.

WOW...did not see this coming! Fantastico!!

Cora meets Landon when he is called into school for his son’s fighting...and it’s insta-something. She really should not get involved with the parent of a student but she is intrigued by the silent man. They go back and forth for a while and eventually start dating...we should get our HEA now right? Oh but you’d be soooo wrong! Things are just getting started!! This is not your typical dad and teacher romance...noooo...Landon carries a ginormous secret that could endanger those he loves. No spoilers...but if you love a bit of creepy science...think The Island of Dr Moreau’...and MMA...then you’re in for a treat! We eventually get a fantastic HEA that left me wanting more. Maybe there’ll be a follow up book with Landon’s ‘brother’, Joe???

Wowza

Hardly ever do I rate this genre 5 stars. This book was fantastic from beginning to end! I think the only thing that would have made this better , is having dual narration where the male always says his part and the female always reads her part. Even so they both did a fantastic job! Sloane hit all the feels in this one for me! Freaking ❤ it!

Relationships of all kind

If you read this and love MMA it will be all the better. It is a little sci-fi and a whole love story. I felt it's title does not do the story justice. A location chosen that has been devastated... a sport many love...an unconventional family and Love. Worth the money or credit. Narration was well done also. Enjoy.
