Synopsis: A fallen boxer.
A woman with a broken dream.
He even makes me forget my name. One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting…
Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I’ve ever met in my life.
He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong–but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents . . .
But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.
I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.
If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?
Review: Brooke doesn’t understand why everybody is going ga-ga over the fighter that entered the arena until he turns around and their eyes lock. The connection is immediate and she can’t look away.
Remy is an underground fighter with an aura of pure masculinity. Ruggedly handsome and built like a brick house, Remy is everything Brook should stay away from and the very she wants.
“There he is, a woman’s living, breathing fantasy, doing his slow, cocky turn, spiky black hair, darkly tanned chest, dimpled smile-killer smile-all in the package of Remington Tate. He’s perfection itself, and a new surge of hormones sweeps through me as I do what the rest of the crowd does and take in his visual, so blatantly on display in those low riding boxing shorts and so strikingly sexy, he becomes the center of my attention. The center. Of my. World.”
I loved this story and what’s not to love?!
“Holy shit, it’s like porn with the romance.”
- Hot alpha-male guy that fires up all my buttons and uses music to express himself *swoon* HELL YEAH!
“You tie me up in knots.” He presses my mouth with his. Briefly. Then he withdraws, breathing hard, and looks at me with heavy-lidded eyes. “I want to play you a thousand different songs so you get a clue of what … I feel inside me…”
- Chemistry that jumps off the page and keeps getting better as the story progresses *fans herself* OH YEAH!
“When I take you, you’ll be mine,” he says, a soft promise in my ear. He slides his thumb along my jaw, then gently kisses my earlobe. “You need to be certain.”
- Angst-ridden story that deals with real life problems that make you want to wrap yourself around the hero to shelter him from it all *sob* YEAH *sniffle*

Not much I can say about this book that hasn’t been said before. I’m certainly looking forward to Mine, the next book in the series.
I received this title from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.
