Copy for Honest Review

Renee "Ren" Miller was five when her Dad left to go to the shops and never came back.

Left to grow up with a cancer riddled mother, things have never been easy for a teenager who had to be wise beyond her years. Then one day they lose the battle and she’s all alone.

Now twenty-two, Ren reluctantly goes to find her estranged father. He owns the down and out boxing studio, Beat, and Ren finds herself drawn to the ring. She thrives on learning a new way of fighting a life that kept kicking her down…instead of struggling against the current, she kicks it right between the legs.

Then one day, Ash Fuller, her Dad's star fighter comes back to town. Mysterious, handsome… Dangerous… Everything Ren doesn't need.

But he's got other ideas…

…and so does she.

**Introduction from Goodreads

Every bit of this story is rock hard!!!! Hard life, hard muscles, and hard lessons. This story is rough and calloused from start to finish. There will be no sweet loving included here, so if that is what you are into best look somewhere else. This is all raw grit and dirt that will leave you exasperated with the intensity that is present throughout. Ren is damaged having lived her entire life caring for her ailing Mother and replacing her absentee Father. Lacking on all the care and nurturing essential to a young girl, she is gruff and tomboyish with insurmountable pent up aggression and anger to life. This is young woman with scars that have scars, and she is lost to herself and all others. Then appears Ash, all packed heat and muscle. He is also marked soul, so angry and intense to a level that is almost palpable. Together these two are the dynamic duo of passion and pain, and a couple of souls to be reckoned with. When Ren pushes her way into the underground fighting world; these two quickly fight their way to the top. Against Ash warning and reluctance she makes quite a name for herself, and unknowingly tempts the already elevated tension. High on adrenaline and the rush of this life, Ren is oblivious to the dangers of the world that she has so wholly become a part of. Still living with the mystery of Ash's past she is walking in the dark of a world packed full of the dangerous enemies. After a beat she will discover clearly the dangers and reality of this world. Seeing that Ash's history is much darker than she originally anticipated, and their is a price to be paid for playing in this deadly game. It is going to cost someone
everything. I was a bit overwhelmed by this book in general; it's power and intensity is at monumental heights that I had yet to see before. There is an explicit warning on this book, and that is warning readers lightly. The eroticism in this book was a record breaking max to anything that I experienced previously. This is quite a dark and raw read that readers will require quite the open mind to thoroughly enjoy. It's a cliffy, and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Readers will feel every twist and turn because this a story you vicariously live with a depth as if it was your own.
