Tattoos, bad boys, love...
Boxing, fame, fortune…
It’s the one thing Kenny and Slayde have in common. Until the night Fate throws them together and everything changes.
Their chemistry is undeniable, their love blazing hot, but is history destined to repeat itself?
It’s a story about fighting. It’s about falling in love. It’s about losing everything only to find it again in the least likely place. And it's about the one hit you never see coming.
A STAND-ALONE, ONE TO HOLD NOVEL. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Kendra “Kenny” Woods is no stranger to heartache. She lost her husband at a very young age and it left her vulnerable and alone. After a reckless night with Patrick Knight that resulted in her young son, Lane – she’s committed to making a life for herself that will make him proud.
As a trainer in a gym, she is used to seeing fighters come and go. But when she sets eyes on the gym’s newest employee, she knows her heart is no longer safe.
“Emotion burned in my chest. I couldn’t believe how strong my feelings were for him. That moment last night when he’d held my face, when I’d wanted him to claim me, it was when I knew. However this ended, he was leaving a permanent mark on my heart. Nothing could stop me charging full-speed into this.”
Slayde “Slayer” Bennett lost everything in a split second of uncontrolled rage. He’s trying to rebuild his life and his job at The Jungle Gym is the chance he has been waiting for. He works hard, keeps his head down and tries not to dream about the beautiful trainer with violet-black hair.
He knows that she would be better off if he left her alone but he just can’t seem to stay away. When she finds out about his past and who he really is, will she be able to forgive him or will she run and take away the only person that he ever truly loved?
“Everything about her called to me. For the first time in years, I wished my life were different and I could approach her like a regular guy. Not like a broken-down has-been with more baggage than a trans-Atlantic flight. She deserved better, yet she wanted me. She touched my face and asked me to let her see inside my darkest places. Now I had to decide if I was brave enough to say yes, to risk losing her by granting her request.”
One to Love is down right gritty goodness! I was unsure if I could relate to Kenny as I really felt for Elaine in One To Keep. But Kenny erased all my doubts and emerged as one of the most unique characters of the series so far. Slayde was so broken and lost that it was difficult not to love him – and who could turn down a sweet tattooed fighter who shows up on your doorstep every night with daisies?
Tia has crafted a tender story that will show you that true love is never easy – but worth every sacrifice…
