Rating: 5 Stars 

Official Blurb:

 Note from the author: 18+ please due to language and sexual content. This is a raw love story. The characters are gritty and real. This is the disclaimer.

To fight and win means the control is his and only his. The last man standing proves it all. Never again will he be on the losing end of the blow, the one lying broken and bloody wanting to die.

Control. Dominance. Aggression. Competition. Each represent a means to survival, a necessity to stay alive, and to suppress the demons that lie inside; the very ones clawing and attempting to break free from the bar that holds them at bay. Every day is a struggle to stay away from the darkness and evil that lurks deep within. Those are the things that it takes to keep those secrets in the realm of his mind in which they belong, forever buried so far there is no chance to break through the barrier he’s built.

Haddox Hayes has spent the last nine years getting by. He’s worked hard to forget that bloodthirsty night he left behind. The monster that exists within his veins will never be released again if he keeps a clear mind, and free from the debris he knows triggers his instinct to kill. He knows what can happen if it’s unlocked from its cage.

Fuck that. It can go to Hell along with the bastard that is the cause of his eternal torment. Eighteen years paid his sin, and at the age of twenty-seven the guilt still resides in his very core.

There is only one place he sets the monster free, but restricted: the ring. Playing by his rules has kept it on a leash for nine years and he doesn’t intend to break his rules now. The rage, the anger, the buildup, it’s all turned out in the confinement of the ropes against another traitor.

Stay in control. That’s the only thing that keeps his urge to annihilate smothered. Dominate the mind and the memories it holds. Fight aggression with fucking aggression. Be the best there is and lay his ass on the ground before the favor can be returned. Compete to win and to survive, or else the evil that is trying to consume will take over and turn him into the one thing he can’t become. If he becomes that, it has to be paid by death, the most ultimate rule.

A blackened heart isn’t allowed to partake in something as pure as love. He embraces the sweet nectar that a woman holds, sampling a little at a time. Never has he taken the same woman to bed twice. The only way to ensure he doesn’t harm another. A Dom in the ring and a Dom in the bed, his only way to cope within.

Then there’s Piper…the girl that could cause his control to evanesce. Will she be his downfall or his reparation? The entertainment is in the fight. Fight for love, fight for light, fight for her, or end in flight.

A girl with a ban against love, allowing men to bed her to numb her mind from the one that left her behind. Can the girl that won’t submit and the man that requires control find paradise in each other?

What an AMAZING book!!! I seriously cannot believe how much I loved this book... then again I am a sucker for bad boys. This book definitely fits the description. It is very raw and very real and literally had my emotions all over the place. It is told through both Haddox and Piper’s POVs so we get a glimpse into the darkness and into the light.

Haddox had a horrible life growing up. I felt so bad for the things he went through as a child and on into his teens. No wonder he has such a dark side. One night changes everything for Haddox and from that night on the beast was born. Nine years later, Haddox is still recovering from the past he can’t seem to escape.  He keeps everyone at bay not letting them know the real him or the secrets he hides deep inside. Fighting is his only way to keep the beast contained well and in the bedroom where he unleashes his inner Dom. After one night of meeting Piper, Haddox’s whole life is about to change in a way he never thought possible.

Piper is such a sweet girl. I also felt bad for her many times. I could not stand her parents. Even though we don’t get much of her father, her mother is HORRIBLE. I wanted to come through my kindle and slap her a few times. Piper is also recovering from Cole. Cole bounces back and forth so many times in and out of Piper’s life. Every time he leaves her she breaks down a little more. When Piper meets Haddox, she is instantly drawn to him. But little does she know what actually awaits her when their worlds collide.

I don’t do spoilers in my reviews so get ready for an emotional roller coaster ride of a life time. There were times when I laughed, cried, yelled, jumped for joy, and even once where I had to walk away from my kindle. But believe me this book is wonderful. This book shows that even though Haddox believes he is full of darkness and cannot do love that with a little help from Piper and fighting some old demons, there is actually light in there after all. I highly recommend this book and I also can’t wait for more.
