But if anyone needs a medic on hand, it’s these guys. Then again, at her first sight of the club’s owner, she’s the one feeling breathless. The man they call Torment is all sleek muscle and restrained power. Whether it’s in the ring or in the bedroom, he knows exactly when a soft touch is required and when to launch a full-on assault.

Our Thoughts: 

  • We understand completely how student loans can be the bane of your existence!
  • We enjoyed how strong Mac was going toe to toe with Max. She doesn’t let him railroad her.
  • We would have never guessed who the “real” Torment was. We definitely preferred the hot tattooed fighter.
  • We like that Mac chose to follow her bliss instead of what others wanted her to do. She found her calling.
  • The additional crew of the club was a great supporting cast. We enjoyed how she became to de facto psychologist for the fighters, along with being the clubs EMT.
  • We would like to hear Jake’s story next.

Happy Reading!
