New Release and Review for Grudge Match by Jessica Gadziala

An underground fight club.
A woman who shouldn’t have been there.
And the man who owns it.
**—**
Ross Ward is bound by the chains of his past he never could seem to shake, leaving him living in darkness, detached from the world around him, and an obsessive workaholic with really only one rule : mind your own business.
Until one night, there was Adalind Hollis – scared, confused, in need of help. And for the first time, he couldn’t convince himself to walk away, to mind his own business.
Even after she was getting the care she needed, he couldn’t seem to make himself stay away. But keeping her close meant he would eventually have to let her in, would have to offer over the horrors of his past, and hope she could accept them.
But even if she would embrace his past, could she accept his plan to exact brutal, bloody vengeance against the man who hurt her?

Grudge Match by Jessica Gadziala
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A hard man and a sweet woman = perfection. I don’t think this author can write characters I don’t fall in love with.

Ross Ward is a character we’ve briefly met here and there in other books as the owner of the underground fighting club named Rex where Laz and Pagan fought. I was curious about him but not quite the die hard fan I have been with other secondary characters that have been introduced. Well, that all changed about 5 minutes into this book. Ross was a man that you immediately knew after one act of kindness had a deeply buried heart of gold and who didn’t even know what he was missing in his life – which was a sweet, kind hearted woman by the name of Adalind. You knew that he had to have had quite the horrific past to make him into the man he was and I think my masochistic side looked forward to seeing what twisted things the author comes up for that past – and she didn’t disappoint.

I swear I could gush all day about how much I love this woman’s books. There was a new character introduced in this book that just went to the top of my “I want his book now” list (this is not something new – it happens almost every book) but I really want this guy’s book!!
