Beth Rhodes has always had a game plan. Go to college. Get the perfect job. Get the perfect guy. Get the happily ever after she's always wanted. It is just her luck that everything falls into its precise place in her life. At least it seems that way until her blueprints go up in smoke. She loses the job she loves and her prince charming is turning out to be the villain of her fairytale instead. With failures and mistakes piling up on her doorstep, she knows something has to give—or she could very well end up paying for those mistakes with her life.
Braxton Bennett is lethal, both in the courtroom and in the ring. Two sides of him constantly wage war against one another, and to keep the internal bloodshed at bay, he allows himself to indulge in his violent vice. Suit by day and brawler by night aren’t easy dual lives to manage for a man of his status. The only way to do so is by following a strict set of rules—rules he won’t break for anyone. But what if he already has?
On a summer night in the depths of the city, a chance encounter will turn both of their perfectly constructed worlds upside down.
Will they battle together against all odds to break Bennett’s rules? Or will Rhodes tap out to save herself before the fight is over?
I've never read Anne before. so when she popped up on my library feed as an audiobook was available, one look at that cover and I was sold. it was sexy, without being naked man in your face sexy.
so I started the audio. and loved it. fell in love with our bare knuckle brawler and instantly liked our damsel in distress. the part I struggled with was going from an abusive possessive boyfriend to an over-the-top caveman alpha male. it felt a little bit of a close line. though I know it was discussed and covered and proved he would never touch her, he does get a bit possessive. that walked a thin line for me, considering the relationship she just left.
I did love the drama that bought these two together so quickly. I also loved Frank the driver. I mean how can you not love that little Irish fairy godmother. he was the perfect addition to the storyline.
Anne did a great job of keeping us on the edge of our seats with the storyline. letting us off the drama hook just to snare us back in with a big catch. the narrator did a great job with her Irish accent and bringing our characters and their feelings to life.
great read. glad I picked up a copy.
