To save her life, I had to win the fight. To keep her alive, I'll have to get her pregnant.
The second I see Shayna, I know she doesn't deserve to be mixed up in this world. Innocent, beautiful... being used as a prize.
She's looking for answers in all the wrong places and I have to get her out of there.
So I do what I do best: I fight and I win.
When I take my prize home, my boss is waiting for me and gives me an ultimatum: get Shayna pregnant. If I don't, we both die. If I do it, he's going to snatch the baby away to replace his own lost grandchild.
We aren't supposed to fall for each other...but our time together becomes something more powerful than I could ever imagine. And when Shayna tells me she's pregnant, I know one thing for sure... no one's taking our child away.
I am new to both London Casey and Ana Fawkes and I love to read new authors. Add that on top of a fighter book and I’m a sucker to jump right in.
This is a gritty story where two people who are caught up in the dark underground world are forced together under dire circumstances. The demands made of them will alter their world, no matter what they choose.
Shayna is on the arm of a notorious mob boss. Although we eventually find out how she got thrown into this darkness, all we see at the beginning is someone who wants to get out. Finn is an underground fighter for another notorious mob boss. Both of them are fighting their own battle. Their own demons. With once chance meeting, they are forced to make a decision of making a baby or losing their own life. Now they have to work together to survive.
“Part of me almost felt bad for Finn, for stepping into all this. I had no idea where he came from or what kind of fights we was used to having, but this was a different world. A dark, underground world of violence, drugs, money, prostitutes, sex….you name it and Zander was in it.”
From the very beginning, Shana and Finn has this instant attraction. Even when they are faced with life threatening situations, that underlying current of energy and attraction is always there.
“He grinned with the worst intentions that could end up being my best fantasy.”
“Shayna was my new drug, my new high. But fucking her was more deadly than fighting for her.”
See what I mean? Each one thinks the other is above the life that they are in. When in reality, they both are.
I enjoyed this book. The plot was well thought out and it kept me guessing. I purposefully left a lot out because there were definitely some twists in there that I didn’t see coming and I want readers to experience that themselves. The only thing that really held me back was the flow of the writing. There were several times during the book that I felt like it was a little choppy to me. It could have been my mindset at the time that I was reading it. Who knows. I’m glad I read this and I look forward to reading some more work from these two authors.
