WIN BY SUBMISSION

WIN BY SUBMISSION                                MELYNDA PRICE

Win by Submission (Against the Cage, #1)To win her heart, he’ll be in for the fight of his life.

After an illegal kick during a CFA title fight fractures Cole Easton’s spine, doctors say there’s nothing more they can do for the bitter Vegas fighter. They say it’s a miracle he can walk, if that’s what you call his crutch-dragging limp. Unwilling to give up on him, Cole’s manager sends the injured fighter to the best physical therapist he knows: his niece, Katie Miller. When Cole arrives in the small town of Somerset, Wisconsin, he quickly discovers his sly manager may have had reasons other than rehab for sending him to this frozen tundra.

After a year of running from an abusive ex-boyfriend, Katie has returned to her hometown to care for her father, who’s recovering from a stroke. When Uncle Marcus calls in a favor, she reluctantly finds herself taking on a rancorous MMA fighter, broken at the height of his career. He’s insanely sex-on-a-stick hot—and everything she loathes in a man.

If Cole thinks his fighting days are over, he’s dead wrong. To save Katie from her past and to win her heart, he’ll be in for the fight of his life.
 

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
Cole Easton is a MMA fighter and has just won the title and while he is celebrating his opponent hits him in the back which brakes a bone and puts his fighting career in jeopardy. With mostly anger at his opponent and the federation because they did nothing to stop him from fighting again. His manager decides to send him from Las Vegas to Minnesota. By going to Minnesota he will be working with his trainers niece who is a physical therapist but went back home because her father had a stroke and she wants to help him recover. What he does not realize is just who much help Katie Miller needs in helping to get her life back on track. After being in an abused relationship for years she finally left the guy in the middle of the night and called her uncle for help because the guy had taken control of bank accounts, and everything else. She left with a little cash and just the cloths on her back along with emotional scares, and physical that will last a life time. Her uncle of course is Marcus, Cole’s trainer, manager, and it takes him awhile to figure out why he was sent out to see her. She is an excellent physical therapist, and the first women who has stirred feelings inside of him that he has never felt before. She is attracted to him as well but her past is holding her back, and when she makes progress she becomes more self-conscious when he sees the scares that her ex gave her that can only be seen when you are intimate. They become closer but he still cannot tell her the L- word though he wants to he is afraid that it will scare her. Then to make matters worse her ex has tracked her down through family and friends and when he finds out that they are together, even though they aren’t Cole tells him they are dating and she should be upset but she is happy. The ex then steps up his terror, but they become closer. When it looks like everything is going to be okay because she goes back to Vegas with him. They get in a fight and she leaves to go home thinking everything is alright because he is in jail not knowing that he made bail and is out looking for her. You will have to read the book to find out what happens, but it is very exciting. I must say this was a very intense story at times and you can really feel for what women who are stalked must be going though. A very good book. I got this book from netgalley.  I give this 5 stars.
