For so long, UFC Middleweight fighter, Camden Jameson lived in his twin brother’s shadow, competing to be the best. When he lost his way, he turned to the Dark Side and did some unforgiveable things. After his betrayal, he tried to earn his redemption, but it wasn’t enough. Now his whole world has fallen apart and he’s on the run from those who want him dead. But he’s not alone.

Undercover agent, Brooklyn Avery, has been assigned to Camden’s case, to watch and protect him. For months, she’s been in the shadows, keeping her distance. All of that changes when the mission takes a dangerous turn and she needs to get closer to protect him. Their love is forbidden, but once they see past each other’s scars, they realize they have what it takes to heal the other. Unfortunately, Camden still has a price to pay for his sins.

Lives will be lost, some will be damaged, and a dark, hidden secret will be revealed. In the end, Camden finally learns what it means to put everything on the line for love, even if it costs him.


First off, I LOVE this series by LP Dover!  It's more than just MMA fighting.  It has HOT MMA fighters, suspense, violence, HOT MMA fighters, raw sex, and yes a little bit of love. Oh and very alpha HOT MMA fighters!  Through the first few books, I think most readers would agree, Camden Jameson was not only a self serving ass to just about everyone, he was also a very broken man.  He had hit rock bottom by fighting in the underground circuit.  I was not a fan of this character at all.  Well, LP Dover, you brought that boy around!  I am now on team Camden!  Of course it took a very special woman to tame the beast.  Brooklyn could not have been a more perfect heroine for this story.  I was nervous about all the lies and secrets between the lead characters to begin with.  I did a little happy dance when B decided that she was all in in this relationship and couldn't keep on lying in good conscience to Cam.  I was so happy that that conversation occurred early on in their relationship and didn't cause undo strife as something revealed far down the road.  If there ever was a bad boy who needed redeeming, it's Camden.  Brooklyn saw something in him that he no longer believed he possessed.

Opening the door, I stepped out into the hallway and kept my eyes solely on his when the door shut behind him. "You're not scaring me, Cam.  Redemption is around every corner, you just have to be willing to work for it."

Together, they became a balm for each other's hurts.  Both finding acceptance for who they are not just what they are.  Camden dug down and became the swoony kind of hero we all love with a few rough edges. 

But you love the ocean, the waves. I've seen you surf and I know it's your passion. 

It is, but I'd give it all up for you.  There is no you and I, it's only we from here on out.  It's your choice, Brooklyn.  Are we going to stay, or are we going to go? 

You'll want to start at the beginning of the series to get a true feel for the relationships between the friends and family in the series.  When you get to this book, I know you'll flip for Camden.  Enjoy this author a whole lot!  Can't wait to read more from her!
