Joel is the sad product of an abusive childhood...his father used to beat his mother almost to death and when he started to fight back for her and on her behalf, he became the seriously injured party but had to keep quiet for fear of retaliation against his mother. When he is forced to leave his home and his mother behind, he is thrown onto the mercy of the streets and learns to survive the only way he knows how...with his fists.
Enter Amber...a bartender who has her own disappointments in her life and lives alone next to the alley where many of Joel's illegal fights are held. When fate brings them together one rainy dark night, their lives are both affected in many ways...and they form an unlikely bond.
The first part ends rather abruptly after a huge life changing event occurs for Joel and with Amber now by his side, who knows what will be in store for them in the conclusion.
A fast moving and tender but at times dark story of finding hope when you least expect it...and perhaps even love and acceptance.
When I read the first part of this story, I really enjoyed it a lot...even though the subject matter was pretty heavy (abused children often grow up to be abusive or violent adults). Joel was no exception and when he meets the trusting and nurturing Amber, I knew it was either going to end badly for her or it might be his salvation.
I was very pleased with the direction this book went in...it was time for healing emotional scars that run deep and not just with fists for Joel, and Amber learns a few life lessons herself as she sticks by her new boyfriend's side. Going behind his back in an attempt to somehow get at the truth of his past, she makes a shocking discovery that causes her to re-think her trusting nature...but as things progress with Joel's fighting career and as they weather a few bumps along the road (including a drunken fight)...they work it out together to make things right. A person from his old life makes a surprise appearance at a really bad time for Joel as he is trying to get his head in the game and make something of himself...but all ends as it should and they both have a different future to look forward to.
A really strong follow-up and conclusion to this story.
***** 4.5 ***** "a better life with love and healing" stars
