I’m willing to die for vengeance. Until she gives me a reason to live…

People call me a rising star in New York City’s underground MMA scene. I’m winning all my matches, and I can have any woman I choose.

Except the one who was lost to me, and now, the one I want but can never allow myself to have.

Carly Anderson is gorgeous and funny and sexy as hell. She isn’t shy about letting me know she’s interested. But she’s far too innocent for me to taint with the sins of my past—and my present. In my circles, being in the wrong place can make you end up dead. My father and older brother embraced the dark, dangerous world of the mafia that I’d turned away from, until the person I loved most was caught in the crossfire.

And this time, that person might be me. Or Carly.
