Meet Liv Michaels
It may have been seven years, but I’d know him anywhere. Sure, he’s grown, filled out in all the right places, but his captivating blue eyes and cocky grin are exactly the way I remember. Even though I’d much rather forget.

Liv Michaels is almost there. She’s smart, determined and weeks away from landing the job she’s dreamed about for years. Time healed old wounds, even her broken heart from the devastation of being crushed by her first love.

Meet Vince Stone
Women love a fighter, especially a good one. Lucky for me, I’m damn good. But there’s one woman that isn’t interested. Not again, anyway.

Vince ‘The Invincible’ Stone is every woman’s fantasy…strong, sexy, confident and completely in control. Growing up surrounded by chaos, he’s learned never to get too attached. Love will drag you down. He adores women, treats them well, puts their own needs before his own…for the night anyway. With the biggest fight of his life coming up, his focus should be on training.

When fate brings Vince & Liv back together again, there’s no denying the chemistry is still there. But can Vince erase the old scars their past left behind? Or will Liv hurt him instead?

I will say that this book was so much more than I expected it to be and that made me pleased beyond measures.  These characters were more complex than just a fighter and a writer who knew each other from the past.  Vinny’s past was rough in all scenes except those that involved his young tutor Liv and, actually, his present Liv.  He is definitely a “wrong side of the tracks” kind of guy and once he realizes that Liv is enamored by him, he pulls away feeling as if Liv is too good for him to be with.  Fast-forward seven years, Liv receives a writing assignment to get the juicy details on a fighter, not knowing that this fighter is Vinny, the wrong side of the tracks boy. 

But this story isn’t about them finding each other again and rekindling what they had in the past.  It’s so much more than that.  There are some true obstacles that each character has to over come and I enjoyed reading how both characters worked through them.  Plus, Vinny was just hot to read about.
