Back Cover Blurb:

Raised in the streets, Knox is a battle-worn MMA fighter with no past, present, or future. Fighting every day just to survive, Knox owns nothing but the pride in his victories and the scars on his hands. When his control snaps and he must flee the city to keep his life, he runs into a stunning woman with the same intent. All big eyes and delicate features, she's not cut out to survive on her own. And when finding her own inner strength leads to a shocking act of violence, Knox knows he must protect her at all costs...

Natalie couldn't spend another day under her father's lock and key. Raised to be the perfect picture of wealth and sophistication, she detests the dark, ugly side of her father's greed. Refusing to be held captive by her life a moment longer, she escapes his fortress - and runs right into the arms of the strongest, most dangerous, most desirable man she's ever met. As instant attraction leads to explosive passion, Natalie finds she cannot leave his side. But as their pursuers loom closer and threaten to tear them apart, Natalie and Knox have to decide: is it easier to stand apart? Or is a love this strong worth the fight?

My Review:

This tale is dark & gritty yet very exciting. Linden develops a fantastic, one of a kind tale that had me on the edge of my seat throughout. It was an intense and creatively developed plot with all the fixings. She is an extremely descriptive author who uses every aspect of this world to make the story more vivid. Danger lurks around every corner as the characters find themselves in tight spot after tight spot, all the while getting closer to one another.

Linden’s cast of characters gave me chills. Some of them had me cringing each and every time they were even mentioned. Danger wafted off of them. At the same time, I love how she melded danger and caring in Knox’s character. Knowing what he’s capable of made him seem both safe and dangerous. Linden also goes so in-depth into Natalie’s background that I felt as if I lived it with her. The main characters have explosive chemistry that is vividly real.

This story is hot from beginning to end. This fast paced tale is one that I’d definitely recommend to others. I could barely put it down.
