Two months ago, everything changed. The enemy no longer feels the need to sulk in the shadows. Instead, he hides in plain sight and prepares his attack… against Reagan Jameson.
Reagan knew this day would come. She proudly holds the featherweight title and is known as one of the sexiest female fighters in MMA history. She can handle her own, and that’s exactly what she plans to do with Nikolai. Unfortunately, things aren’t as they were before. When given an offer she can’t refuse, Reagan is well aware nothing good will come of it.
They promised her power, prestige, and money… a world full of intrigue and dangerous desires. Not being able to resist the allure, she gives in and becomes a pawn in their game. She’s able to fool those closest to her into believing everything is okay… except for Braden Emerson.
Braden’s reputation as one of the toughest fighters in the circuit hasn’t gone unnoticed. In fact, it’s his skills that get him lured into the pit of danger. While he vows to keep Reagan safe no matter the cost, his desire for her is used against him. As passion ignites between the pair, they must work together if they hope to survive.
Fighting for a title is one thing, but nothing beats the stakes of fighting for love. This is one TKO that could cost them everything.
Keagan is following her family tradition and is making quite the mark as an MMA fighter. Her agreement to train a fellow fighter leads to a much more sinister plan as she finds herself caught in the crossfire due to a vendetta from the past. She doesn’t want anyone to know about the situation she finds herself in, but Braden knows that all is not right and will do anything to keep her safe.
Braden is a fellow MMA fighter who has always been part of Keagan’s life. He wants to be more than friends, but she is cautious because of how close their families are. He is no longer willing to wait on the sidelines and is determined to claim the woman who owns his heart but first they must find a way out of the dangerous situation they find themselves in.
The chemistry between them is intense as they take us on a suspenseful journey to overcome the agendas that others have for them and fight for the future they both want.
