Review - 4.5 Stars

****Actual Rating 4.5 Stars****

Death...One wishing for it and One staring it in the face.

What an interesting and emotional ride.  Two broken people who have a connection to a moment in life that changed them forever.   Only they don't know...for some reason fate has brought them together again...will they grab on to each other??

Britt has been through hell for the past ten years.  Her life dramatically changed one Friday afternoon, however she has no memories, something she will be forever grateful for.  But she still suffers from physical trauma and panic attacks of that day.  She just wants to feel safe, too feel real again...maybe this silver eyed stunning man is her savior....<b>he's both an angel and a devil</b> or maybe he'll destroy her

The only time I feel at all is when I fight.  In the cage I receive the pain and suffering I deserve...

Keller has been lost for the past ten years.  Everything important ripped away in a blink of the eye.  Guilt consumes him and all he sees is pain.  The only time he feels alive is in the cage.  This gives him what he feels he deserves...until he meets Britt.  She could be the one who tears down those walls...to give him more.

I finally found exactly what I need.
No. Exactly who I need
And I won't stop until he gives me everything.

This was a journey of redemption, strength and love.  Keller lives with so much guilt, but Britt seems to lessen the pain.  He's drawn to her light and can't seem to let go.  Even though his mind wants to let go, his heart won't let him.  She makes him want to be better, to let go of his guilt.  Britt is strength.  She doesn't want to play the victim of the terrible tragedy.  She wants to move on with her life, but she's still scared.  With Keller, he soothes her, he makes her feel safe.  Everyone is afraid of him, but not Britt.  She recognizes another tortured soul in him.  Maybe they can heal each other and together they can become whole again.

I can easily see Britt becoming an obsession.  One with the potential to either save me or destroy me.
The question is, do I want either?

The reason for my 4.5 star read is because I noticed that a few times things are repeated.  It's not real noticeable, but I did think wait didn't I just read that.  However, I have to say that the author has grown tremendously in her writing skills from when she first starting writing.  She did an excellent job portraying the weakness of the characters.  Their struggles to live with the aftermath of a terrible tragedy.  I was very pleased that Heather didn't dwell on the shooter, He didn't deserve a voice.  The flashbacks are brief and it doesn't take away from the present story, but you need those little flashbacks to have some more depth to their characters.

Keller and Britt are full of sexual electricity.  They were dirty and sweet rolled into one.  I enjoyed the connection of these two and the ending was perfect....I had a smile on my face.  This was definitely an intense ride.  The writing is gripping, the characters are developed.  This book will clench your heart and you will not want to put it down.  Yes, it's a little dark, but there is so much light trying to break through....Great Job!  I recommend this to anyone.

Review by Heather Driscoll

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.
