Brooke Dumas does not intend to become a rehab therapist. Her dreams involve sprinting to an Olympic gold medal until a crushing knee injury leaves her broken. Now she is between jobs and desperate for a purpose.
A trip to the Underground Fight circuit introduces Brooke to the world of blood, lust and Remington Tate. From the moment she first sees the champion fighter, she cannot deny that she wants him. More disturbing, he seems to want her, too.
When Brooke is asked to be on Remy's staff, she cannot decide if she totally misread the fighter's interest in her, or if there is far more to him than she could have imagined. Brooke begins to come to grips with the passion igniting between them, and the darkness that Remy carries inside. The more Brooke learns, the more she knows that the connection between them is a reality that will cost them both more than they ever imagined.
This gritty first person story is told from Brooke's point of view in a running dialog that is both insightful and exhausting. The relationship between her and Remy is sexy, consuming and also borders on the abusive. It will be fascinating to see where the series leads, as these two wounded souls try to reconcile their pasts with their futures.
