Raised in the streets, Knox is a battle-worn MMA fighter with no past, present, or future. Fighting every day just to survive, Knox owns nothing but the pride in his victories and the scars on his hands. When his control snaps and he must flee the city to keep his life, he runs into a stunning woman with the same intent. All big eyes and delicate features, she's not cut out to survive on her own. And when finding her own inner strength leads to a shocking act of violence, Knox knows he must protect her at all costs...
Natalie couldn't spend another day under her father's lock and key. Raised to be the perfect picture of wealth and sophistication, she detests the dark, ugly side of her father's greed. Refusing to be held captive by her life a moment longer, she escapes his fortress - and runs right into the arms of the strongest, most dangerous, most desirable man she's ever met. As instant attraction leads to explosive passion, Natalie finds she cannot leave his side. But as their pursuers loom closer and threaten to tear them apart, Natalie and Knox have to decide: is it easier to stand apart? Or is a love this strong worth the fight?
Although I liked the introduction of both characters after that bit how they met and what not long after was a bit too rushed and seems ridiculous to me. It actually turned me off of the book at first. But I wanted to give this book a fair chance and read it. So glad that I did because after a couple of things that I deemed ridiculous happened, when I was about 30% into the book things picked up and I got used to how things were running and I found myself really enjoying this book. There is almost never moment when things are just chill. There was always something going on and when things were starting to reveal and started to look slightly up something always happens. I liked that this book kept me on my toes and constantly wondering whats going to happen next. Its a great story and I really enjoyed it.
