True love sounds great until it shows up on your doorstep wrapped in a warning label.
When Tristan walks back into my life, he’s not the childhood friend I remember. He’s harder, dangerous, angry. But he’s gentle with me. And he wants to know why I gave up my dreams of being an artist.
An underground fighter with a track record of leaving is the worst person I could fall for. But he keeps showing up at my door, telling me that my paintings are amazing and I’m even better. My head says, “No,” but my heart says, “Yes.”
He thrives on violence. I’m desperate for security.
He’s angry and lost. I know exactly what I want, if only I dared reach for it. He’s on a dark, self-destructive spiral. I’ve already lost one person. I refuse to do it again.
Will the passion they’ve found together burn out in the light of day? Or can they change enough to find real happiness?
I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
This book is from a dual point of view, with Tristan and Kaia jumping between the characters. This book starts off with a bang true to the title with an underground fight. Unfortunately, chapter one is a time jump, and I’m glad the author bolded that out, or I may not have seen it jump to the future.
I love how the author connected the characters even though they are from different worlds. This book really heats up both in action and in romance. It gets steamy so fast, but I love seeing the characters exposed raw and happy. I wish the author gave us more background on the characters’ pasts and how they knew each other. However, the author did a great job of building passionate flawed characters that the reader can relate to and imagine. Yes, Tristan is damaged and gets into trouble, but I love how he grows from it. Even Kaia is damaged in a way, although maybe not as much. I enjoyed seeing her chase her dreams as well. The book ends sweet a perfect conclusion to a fantastic story.
