it was amazing

This is a fantastic dark read, and in my opinion handled a subject matter delicately.

This read of healing after tragic events that happened to two people during life at school.

Britt has suffered, but also conquered horrific events, she is a strong woman that despite having to relearn everything pulled through and pursued her dream of becoming a physio and working in a team that helps fighters. This is where she feels safe, and knowing that fact when she is working brings her comfort.

Killer (Keller) is a man that blames himself for events that happened 10 years ago. It is always a series of 'what ifs?' Leaving his life being he trains with the best to become a fighter. 10 years later he is back home, after wanting to train with the MMA fighters in order to join the circuit.

These two lost souls meet and in turn are the saving graces for each other.

I loved this read, and was engrossed within the pages.

"An obsession. One with the potential to either save me or destroy me. The question is, do I want either?"

Victims of a senseless tragedy that irrevocably changed the course of their lives Britt and Keller are brought back together unknowingly by fate. Almost ten years after a shooter opened fired at their school leaving his sister dead and Britt near dead Keller has returned to America to further his MMA career. She is the team physio, surrounding herself with strong alpha males as a coping mechanism to appease the constant fear she lives with. Something about the new fighters eyes draws her in but the memory whispers, teasing at the edge of her conscious thoughts. The sparks fly between them drawn to the brokenness reflected in each other's eyes. She is not fearful of the beast he keeps caged within. Is she strong enough to accept everything he has to give? Burying his emotions since the death of his sister as he feels responsible as he was selfish, having forgotten to pick her up after school, Keller no longer exists and in his place is Killer. A fighting machine that shows no mercy. Yet the fragile blonde unleashes a seed of hope in his chest, that maybe just maybe he can be loved. Unaware that their shared pain that shattered them ten years previously is the same can they help each other to over the demons that haunt them? 

This is a journey of strength, recovery and survival. Not accepting defeat and embracing the possibility of tomorrow. Britt is brave and awe inspiring as she strives to be her own person without a label, without the perceived motion she is just a victim. Keller, lost to his own guilt, is drawn to her light and is slowly brought back to life. Recognising he has run from the pain in an attempt to forget Britt makes him a better man, a stronger man and enables him to face up to the past. With twists and turns and the will they won't they feel to the story I felt this was a wonderfully written story. Dealing with sensitive issues it was handled really well and although classed as dark romance the passion between them is raw and a thing of beauty. I loved the focus on the journey they both experienced and how they each independently handled things.

A four and a half star Max deserved to be crushed read!

Excerpt:  Britt freaks out
Britt and Gabriel are waiting for me in his office so we can start our meeting. After my interaction with Wolfe, I’m seething and frustrated. All I want to do is jump into the cage and beat the fuck out of something, release this shit building up inside. Confusing new emotions like jealousy are dueling with my usual focused, raw fury.
The dark, hollow place in my chest isn’t equipped for this. I fight, I fuck, I exist. Nothing more, nothing less.
Furious, I walk over to Gabriel’s office and shove open the door. It bangs against the wall with a loud crack, causing Gabriel to frown and Britt to cry out. Just like that, she drops to the floor, curling into a ball and covering her head with her hands.
Gabriel leaps to his feet, hurrying around his desk to crouch next to a huddling, quivering Britt. Stunned, I stand at the door frozen, unsure what is going on or what I should do.
Meu filha! Britt! What is happening?” Gabriel’s voice hitches as he tries to pull Britt out from under his desk. His head whips around to face me. “Killer! ¡Venha aqui e ayudar!” (Get over here and help..)
I cross the space in two quick steps, approaching Gabriel’s desk from the opposite side. Britt’s tiny frame is tucked into a tight ball, her knees pulled to her chest, head ducked, and arms curled protectively over her head.
Protecting her from what?
“Britt,” I say in as composed of a voice as I can manage, which at this moment, isn’t saying much. Not a lot freaks me out, but right now, watching Britt fall to pieces, has me struggling to keep calm. “Please, come out.”
Britt is quietly sobbing, her body shuddering in fear. Watching her in such obvious distress sends a stabbing pain through my chest. Not sure this is the best thing for her, but not knowing what else to do, I crawl under the desk. Being as large as I am, I can only get my head and shoulders in next to her.
Gabriel slides into nervous, staccato Portuguese. “I will leave you to take care of her. Let me know when she’s feeling better and I will return.” He stands and leaves the room, gently closing the door behind him.
He left me with her?
What the fuck am I supposed to do? At a loss, I do the only thing that comes to mind. It worked to relax her before, so why not? I gather her tiny, trembling body up in my arms, and hold her. Britt immediately unwinds her arms, clutching me tight, burying her face into my shirt, her tears dampening the fabric.
On the floor in my trainer’s office, lying half under a desk, a tiny shard of my black soul becomes human again.
