Summary

Ross Ward is bound by the chains of his past he never could seem to shake, leaving him living in darkness, detached from the world around him, and an obsessive workaholic with really only one rule: mind your own business.

Until one night, there was Adalind Hollis - scared, confused, in need of help. And for the first time, he couldn't convince himself to walk away, to mind his own business. Even after she was getting the care she needed, he couldn't seem to make himself stay away. But keeping her close meant he would eventually have to let her in, would have to offer over the horrors of his past, and hope she could accept it.

But even if she would embrace his past, could she accept his plan to exact brutal, bloody vengeance against the man who hurt her?

Contains mature themes.

Loved this book

I received a recommendation for this author on another authors fan page. Since then I have been binge reading all her books. This is currently her only audio book and I loved it.

This is the story of Ross Ward and Adalind. You are sucked into the story from the very beginning when Ross discovers her unconscious by the dumpster outside his fight club. The story progresses and every time I think I know what is going to happen I am surprised. The narration was great. This book is definitely worth a credit.

another home run for Jessica Gadziala

I read this book when it came out as an ebook and was stoked to see that an audio book was available. My commute is horrendous. Audio books make it all tolerable.

I enjoyed the voice actors. They were believable as Ward and Addy and really made the story shine. Their depiction of Adler made me laugh snort.

so so good.

Loved it

I am new to this author. I finished Reign which is also excellent and saw this was her only other audible although I understand that others are in the pipeline. Great story, excellent narrators. Strong H and h. No angst through stupidity (one of my pet peeves). Worth a credit. I will certainly listen to any more of her books as they become available.

3.75 stars

I really like the story and the characters. My favorite parts were towards the end. I would have given it more stars if instead of getting the glimpses into the future we had actually gotten more. I'm greedy like that and I loved the friendship between Ward and Adler so I would have liked to have gotten more. Great narration.

loved

I had previously read this book and loved the story but wanted to try in on audible.
I was very happy with the narrators they did a wonderful job and I think book narrating is a hard lane to do good on.
Book is wonderful, narrators great and performance great a well

Such a great story!

I am a long time JG reader and I really loved this story. JG has the ability to create this lovable characters with very different and well developed back stories. I enjoy how strong her female characters are. Her male characters are so loving and caring of their women, not perfect but they always have that "protect my woman" thing that I can't get enough of. Ward a man with a really difficult past and Adelind with her sweet amd trusting personality make such a great couple. I just love how she does a nice and long epilogue (something not many writers do. BTW THANK YOU JG). Both narrators did a great job.

Excellent!

I am a huge Jessica Gadziala fan. I have eye read most of her books and am very excited that we are now getting some audiobooks too. Below is my GR review. The audiobook was narrated very well and highly recommended.

As this was my first read by this author, I had no idea what to expect but saw the fighter on the cover and knew I would give it a go.
Ross Ward is definitely an anti-hero. He is very rough around the edges to put it mildly. When he finds a woman knocked unconscious behind the dumpster of his fight club, everything changes. Adalind is rather naive but certainly not weak. She just isn't too sure about getting involved with a criminal.
I really enjoyed this novel. The author has an easy flowing writing style, the characters are engaging, and the plot moved along at a good pace. There were several side characters mentioned making me want to read other books to learn more about them. This novel does stand alone, as I said it was my first read by this author and I wasn't lost at all.

Another beautiful story!

I love Jessica’s books (also just finally learned how to pronounce her last name haha). This love story tugged at my heartstrings. The mentions of my favorite Navesink banks character was also a nice addition.

😯 OMG, WHY CANT THIS B A VISUAL BOOK 📖????

Why, why, WHY can’t this b a visual book???? This was an “accidental” find when searching for a book 📖 n I’m sooo glad I found it... I love MMA books n have had this package for about a year and never came across this, n OMG 😘😚😉🤗🤭🙃😊 I’m so glad I did...
I hope 🤞🏼 there’s a sequel with Adler...
the only thing that I can complain about is that I think the ending is short and rushed... I almost thought it would b a cliffhanger but am so happy it didn’t... can’t wait for her next 📖 2 come out in a week 🤗
