I truly enjoyed this book!
This story delivered on setting us up into the world of fighter Gabriel "The Saint" Vega. I fell for him right away! He acts tough but has a HUGE heart!
I liked it a lot that this story was more than just about a guy and girl getting together.
Heartbreak, cheating, loyalty, finding one self, trust, making bad decisions, falling in love....yep this book has it all.
When I started the book, my heart broke for Gabriel and his brother Jase. They don't start their lives well. The book then goes into their lives as adults years later and we get to see how they turned out. Being a box fighter now, Gabriel gets an opportunity to be sponsored by a big shot guy named Blaine & that is when his life changes when he meets Salem.
Salem seems like a challenge to Gabriel at first, but he soon finds out, he doesn't want to just be with her, he wants more. Their chemistry was hot and also had me giggle at times of how they both seemed to hold back on their feelings towards one another with acting out and being over dramatic. We all do that and can relate.
I am looking forward to Book#2 in this series. I want to know what happens next! Thank goodness the next book will be here soon.
Go get this book and fall for "The Saint"!
