Summary

A prince of industry, an imprisoned gladiator, fistfights instead of ballrooms - Cinderella was never this hot.

A master in the arena but a slave when combat is over, Jabez is a cage fighter raised on the streets. When two friends bet on a match, wealthy socialite Andreas wins time with the champion. He feels an instant sizzling connection with the battered warrior and buys out the man's contract, offering Jabez a chance for a better life.

Uneasy in sudden luxury, Jabez resists attraction to his handsome employer. The two men's struggle against desire explodes in passionate fighting, but eventually they surrender to lust, which slowly evolves into something more. When Andreas discovers his family's corporation hides dark, dangerous secrets, he faces a fight for his life. Meanwhile, Jabez learns what it means to care for someone and puts his body and soul on the line to rescue the man he's grown to love.

apocalyptic cage match romance is strangely fun

Enjoyed this except that the timeline was really rushed. It would have rung more true to me if each new day we see actually happened weeks apart. But if you want a fighter with a heart of gold meets rich boy story, that is what you’ll get here. It’s relatively low angst for a book that has brutal deathmatch fights and betrayal. One knows a betrayal is coming, but it’s a doozy. Still, one expects & gets an HEA, and it even comes with a dog.

Steam: Medium. M/M sexytimes on page veer into slight domination kink toward the end but quantity is not excessive. Scenes didn’t always resonate with me emotionally, which combined with the rushed timeline is what knocked it from 5 to 4 stars.

Worldbuilding: not bad. Did not annoy me, seemed consistent & well integrated. Set in post-apocalyptic Boston, the focus is more on relatable “billionaires vs serfs” type social problems than about the fancy flying cars. But there are flying cars and better band aids, for all they aren’t the focus.

Narration: Pretty good. Accent for one main character sounds mildly Indian-American so it was easy to differentiate characters. Narrator’s dialect drops the /ng/ in “strength” & “length” and I’d never realized how many times one might use the word /lenth/ in a gay novel but every one stood out for me here. Another pet peeve is pronouncing “clamber” like “clamor” & both words were used. But this is me being picky & rude, despite otherwise quality narration.

Just OK

The best thing about this audiobook is Noah's narrating.
The story was typical. Fighter to bodyguard. Some hot sex.
A problem occurs and drama ensues. Then a HEA.
A short story. It's ok. Good filler for doing chores..
😯

Not enough world building.

This story had good bones. Jabez is rescued from a miserable life that is spent fighting and surviving. Its all he has, all he knows. When Andreas watches one of his matches and is gifted a meeting with Jabez by one of his friends he knows that Jabez belongs with him and buys out his contract. The two quickly start developing feelings for one another and Jabez opens Andreas eyes to what the world is really like. Things do not go smoothly at all. Nothing is easy and when you have the kind of friends that Andreas has who needs enemies?

I liked both characters a lot. Andreas is a little rich and spoiled and a whole lot innocent. Once his eyes are opened to the realities of the world though he is very much a man of action. Jabez was a little harder to read but that is because of the life he has lived I think. I wish that there had been more world building in the story. Things were a bit confusing at times and the story was hard to stay interested in for long stretches. The sex was very hot though.

Noah does a great job with Narration as always. I tend to like his voices for gritty characters a bit more than rich uptight type though. I could listen to the man do that little chuckle all day though!
