He’s quiet, a thinker who is always three steps ahead of the game—in and out of the ring.

Trenton “Trick” Jameson is a mystery, even to his fellow fighters at Diablo’s Throne. They only know him as the Country Boy Brawler who left home to chase his dreams. His band of brothers have no idea what he's lost or left behind...

And that’s the way Trick wants it.

With a champion title tied to his name, his future is endless until the raven-haired beauty became his game changer. Mack owned him the moment she stumbled into his world.

Trick could have never seen the sharp turn his life was about to take. Everything always catches up with you, whether you like it or not. And now, all he's fought for is on the verge of being destroyed.

What’s a fighter left to do?




My Thoughts:

Trenton “Trick” Jameson has a dream.  Just not his father’s which may be a disappointment but children have a right to their own path.  He’ll show you how smart he is and that his “job” doesn’t define who he is as a person.  Mackenzie “Mack” Graham makes adjustments in her life so that she can cope.  She’s a good reminder not to judge a person by what you see.  Before making any judgments you need to get to know a person first and they just may surprise you.

Our author may tickle your funny bone – and that’s not a bad thing.  Not too far in there’s a scene that has a joke.  Let’s just say that I’m glad that no one was around when I burst out a laugh.  It’s not a joke you want to tell your co-workers.  Some might say that the men in this book is what draws them into a series.  Well for me it wasn’t the men but the women.  There’s a saying that “behind every great man there’s a great woman” and I think that is evident here.

You don’t need the first two books to understand this group of people.  It’s not hard to tell that they care about each other and their hearts are open for more.  This is what made this a fun read.  Then there’s the connection that develops between Trick and Mack.  It was interesting to watch that connection develop over time.  Our author didn’t rush anything in order to get to the “good stuff”.  It’s the building of a relationship that becomes important.  She also shows us that Trick may be this big tough guy but he also has a soft spot that makes him a good protector.

The author may not like my description but this story was sweet.  Don’t get me wrong there are moments of heat and you can see the connection between Trick and Mack grow.  But there’s just something about the way Trick cares for Mack that is just so sweet.  He’s the perfect choice for getting Mack out of her shell.  The sad part was when the ending became a little bittersweet. But I ended on a smile because the author lets me know there may be more to come.  And I can’t wait.
