After an unstable childhood, Jules Darcy is very familiar with the risks of falling in love. And as an adult, she’s never let herself forget just how high those stakes can be. That’s why she ran away a year ago after her fling with MMA fighter Nick Giannakis quickly got serious. But when she jumps at the opportunity to reconnect with her dad by accepting a job with his growing fight league, she’s stunned to learn the abs, the chiseled arms, and the rock-solid punches she has to market belong to none other than her former fling. Unable to run away from the sexy middleweight this time, Jules vows to keep things strictly professional. But one look at Nick, and her resolve starts to crumble….
The last thing Nick expects when he signs with the prestigious World Fighting Championship is that he’ll have to work with the only woman who ever broke his heart. Desperate to hide the pain she caused him, Nick vows to keep his distance from his gorgeous ex. But when he realizes their intense chemistry hasn’t faded after a year apart, he wonders if they could have a future together, even if dating the boss’s daughter could complicate his bid for the championship belt.
Under the bright lights of Las Vegas, in the world of high-stakes prize fighting, they’ll have to take a risk and decide if their love is worth fighting for.
|The story opens with Jules Darcy who left her job in Boston to work with her father in Las Vegas. Her father now runs a top MMA league and has hired her for promotional work for an upcoming event they are having. Taking her out to meet the fighter and the ones that she will be promoting and working with. She is caught off guard at the sight of Nick Giannakis. He is not only good looking and is looking at her, but she ran out of his place a year ago when he was starting to get serious about a relationship. Now she is staring at him and he does not look happy, but shocked. Nick left Chicago and changed leagues and now the one person that he thought he would never see again is standing across the room and he hears that she is also the owners’ daughter. On top of everything else they are put together to work on the new ad campaign. Darcy also does not think that they can be together because of the relationship or the lack of one that her parents had. Nick on the other hand knows that he is in love with her but does not want to do anything to scare her away again. A good story with good characters. See what happens between them and with his fights. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com|
