I really like Claire. I felt like she was a strong character, who had been through a lot and was just looking for a chance to start over. Her struggles and fears were real and easy to connect with. I adored Rory. I just wanted to give him a big hug. His life sorta went downhill after he got injured. He turned to alcohol and drugs to dull his pain. And then Claire came into his life. Claire woke up something in him that he thought was gone. She made him want to be a better man and to get back the life that he thought he lost.
Claire and Rory had some really great chemistry. Claire really brought out the alpha/possessive side in Rory. They complimented one another well and really came into each other’s lives at just the right time.
I also really loved Rory’s family. They are exactly what I think of when I think about an Irish family. They are close, in each other’s business, they give each other crap, but you can tell that they really love and care about each other.
One of the issues that I had was that I felt like the end of the story was a little bit rushed. I would have liked to have seen the book maybe be just a tad longer, so that the pacing would make more sense. Also, and this is something that I rarley have issue with; I felt like everything was wrapped up a little too neatly in the end, making it seem unrealistic. I felt every issue this couple had was wrapped up in a matter of just a few pages. Please don’t get me wrong, I like when things get wrapped up, but this just didn’t work for me.
Overall, I thought that this was an ok read. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either. This story had a lot of good things working for it and I think this series has a ton of potential.

After losing his last fight due to his stubbornness ( and a seriously broken leg), Rory Kavanaugh is a vessel without a rudder. Ten months of rehab after his leg was put back together, he is still in pain and hooked on pills and liquor. There is no purpose to his life anymore. His purpose in life was the cage and maintaining his status as one of the top 10 MMA fighters. Now, he has no idea what to do with his life. Even his once close ties with his family has taken a hit. He feels guilty because he knows he has not lived up to their expectations. In addition, he has no idea or will to turn his life around.
Meeting Claire is the first thing that makes Rory think twice about his life. The attraction is immediate. As she meets him for the first time while he is thoroughly drunk at the bar where she works, they cannot help but notice the easy banter and the electricity between them.
Claire comes with her own baggage. She is running away from her past and fearing for her life. She needs to prove to herself she is strong and able to defend herself. Living in terror and barely making ends meet, she is still resilient and willing to pick herself up again and again in order to succeed.
All the emotions of falling in love, loving someone deeply, yet feeling inadequate are shared by our characters. Their struggle to improve themselves goes beyond the expected, as our main characters try, fail and continue to fight toward shedding the baggage from the past and to forge ahead with hope.
I should also mention, the love scenes are HOT! They are not over explicit, in fact they are very tasteful but still HOT.
Sensitive, emotional with undercurrents that will grip your heart, all is not drama. This is an Irish family with a heart of gold ( although Kavanaugh Sr. was once part of the Irish Mafia). They are boisterous, caring and involved with each other. They cannot help but draw us into their family dynamics where they all care and fight for each other. Sometimes they even fight each other! Too many alpha boys trying to grow up into men.
I found myself immersed in this story completely. I could feel the emotions the characters were feeling because, at some point or another, we have all struggled to succeed. We have all succumbed to pressures and obstacles and it is through our inner fortitude that we are able to overcome.
A special mention is needed here. This story makes a strong statement regarding the use of dogs to train fighting dogs. The inhumanity of such a practice has to be noted. These dogs are victims to the greed of humans that will stop at nothing to get what they want. We are the keepers of the Earth and all the animals and lives on this planet. Whether we like animals or not, being decent and not abusing them comes with the territory. Our story shows us how, with care, we can help these victimized dogs to find a new life with a hopeful future. Ace's character is based on a real-life dog who survived this inhumane treatment and found a loving home to nurture and love him. Art imitates life.
We meet Rory who is constantly popping pain pills and drowning his sorrows of a year old broken leg in booze. He meets Clare, falls in love, decides to be a better man and completely cold turkey stop with the pain pills and alcohol all in the same day with no withdrawals or ill effects. COMPLETELY UNBELIEVABLE. The amount of pills and booze he was consuming, he would have bare minimum been violently ill, more likely needing to be hospitalized for withdrawal. You don't just decide one day to stop your heavy addictions and boom your golden.
Clare was annoying vacillating between cute and angry and turned on even after the predictable stabbing from her Ex. Really by the end I was just skimming to get through it.
Overall the characters were superficial. I couldn't really get a good picture of the characters, other than Rory's washboard abs- I didn't know a drunk pill popping guy who rarely works out in his own gym could maintain those abs that are so frequently referred to. Ugghhh waste of time.
