This is the first book that I have read from this author…but it won’t be the last. Talk about an emotional rollercoaster!
Calum and Olivia dated briefly back in high school, until Olivia dumped him in a public and humiliating way. Calum channeled his frustration and anger into training and now, years later, is an up-and-coming MMA fighter. Imagine his surprise when he goes out to celebrate his first professional win and the girl who was too good for him in high school is now the woman serving him his drinks. He decides that flaunting his success in her face and humiliating her, like she did to him, is going to be his revenge. However, there are feelings other than hate that they have and maybe things weren’t exactly as they seemed in their past.
This story has so many layers. I don’t want to give anything away because it was s shock to me and took me a minute to catch my breath when I understood what was happening. I found myself pulling for them each to come clean with each other…it was frustrating the way they would dance around what was really happening (but it made the book more dramatic…so I get why it was needed). I am glad the story took turns I didn’t see coming and ended much different than I was guessing. T. Christensen has a way with words that pulled me in and kept me engaged for the entire story… and I loved it!
