Strong. Smart. Independent. When I was younger, I never would’ve used those words to describe myself. But I’m no longer that scared little girl, all alone in the world. My friends are the only family I have now.
From the second Luke Woods steps foot in the gym where I work, I feel his presence. Tall. Handsome. Ripped. When our eyes meet, the hunger I see in them is for more than his place in the professional boxing ring.
We can’t deny the electric tension between us. But the day I inherited the family business, the living, breathing past re-emerges to threaten all I held dear…including Luke.
