Ryan Harper used to love a girl named Jade Forsyth, until she chose someone else.
Walking away from the only woman he’s ever loved and clawing his way up from the bottom, he’s on the cusp of making it in the world of professional MMA. He’s spent his life being put down because of his working class roots, but now he’s made something out of himself. Something he can be proud of.
When a chance meeting on a Melbourne street sends his unrequited love spiralling into his life once more, he’ll do anything to show her there’s more to her—and life—than how much money is in her bank account, the clothes she wears, and how much overtime she puts in at work. Life is for living…and loving.
But when the rush wears off, will Jade see his feelings are real? Or is history destined to repeat itself?
What began as a slow building of their relationship quickly turned into a rush of chest tightening emotional pull. Amity Cross has written a book that focused more on her characters growth and reaching their highest potential so they can achieve the love that we know is there. And it was an amazing road to be on with Jade and even Ryan.
There are characters that a reader will want to strangle with barbells and ones that will make readers wish they were theirs to keep but in the end they made this story a fantastic one. They all made it full of huge emotion whether it was murderous intent, grief or lust. I loved the ending and the connection to one of my favorite romcons.
Though this is book 9 of the series it is a standalone and can be completely enjoyed on its own. But who wants to live without reading the others in the series! This is one book I would definitely recommend to all who enjoy a romance high on emotion and a little lower on heat.
