Everything I meant to say went straight out of my head when I walked through the door.
Q & A With R.J. Prescott -
1. What’s the hardest thing about writing from O’Connell’s perspective?
Definitely introducing Heath as a new character. It’s incredibly difficult to describe a hot guy when you’re writing from a male perspective.
2. Do you have a favorite quote/scene from the book?
“Son, fear lives in the dark. Drag it into the light and you’ll see there was never anything to be afraid of.”- Danny
3. Who has influenced you as a writer?
There are many amazing authors out there who inspire me on a daily basis, but the biggest influence on my writing has come from my husband Lee. We were pretty much Em and O’Connell’s age when we fell in love, so it’s maybe inevitable that some of our experiences growing up and falling in love bleed over into Em and O’Connell.
4. What’s next for you?
More of the charming and possessive fighters that I love so much. The next books in the series will be Kieran’s and Tommy’s. Kieran’s quite a complex character and I’m looking forward to getting inside his head!

Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree. Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.
Cormac "the Hurricane" O'Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the misfire. He's never been knocked out before, but when he meets Em he falls, HARD. Unlike any other girl he's ever met, she doesn't want anything from him. Just being around her makes him want to be a better person. They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the fight.
