My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Love my angsty reads and the Fighting series never disappoints. Even though there is a huge age difference between Cameron Kyle the CEO of the UFL, and Eve who we met in the first book, due to their tragic past it was not really apparent.
Fourteen years ago Cameron was at the top of his game both in the ring and in life. He was the undefeated champion and had a beautiful wife and 3 year old twins. In the blink of an eye a complication from a fight leaves him with a brain infection that puts a stop to his career and then a tragedy happens to his daughter. This in turn causes his marriage to implode and his career going in a different direction along with having to live with the enormous guilt about the loss of his fighting career and his daughter .
Eve has pretty much had to take on adult responsibilities when she was a young girl after her mother leaves her with her father who turned into a verbally abusive drunk who gambles any money he got his hands on. This of course leaves her with tons of self esteem and insecurities which has her making poor choices when it comes to men. The only good thing she’s had in her life is her best friend Raven who she almost got killed by choosing to believe the guy she was sleeping with wasn’t a POS. After that disaster she’s sworn off men.
When Cam and Eve meet though the instant attraction is too much for both of them and they end up where they know they should be but can resist the sexual pull. These two go through a lot of ups and downs before end of the book. All the previous characters are back in this book and hoping that the single UFL fighters get their books in the future.
