Holy smokes what a start to H.J. Bellus’s MMA fighter series! If you like a smoking hot alpha and feisty heroin then this is a must read. I have never read this author before and now I must go read everything she has written.
Cruz and Layla meet on the worst day of Layla’s life and he is there for her every day after that. Layla is a feisty, sassy and a take no nonsense lady. She has been knocked down in life and has some trust and abandonment issues, but Cruz is just the guy to get her past her issues. She meets Cruz at the hospital after her abuela has died and is devastated because she has raised Layla after her mother abandoned her. Cruz is a MMA fighter in her dad’s gym, but he is so much more. He is a total alpha with a soft heart and will do anything for Layla. Cruz has his own demons and he must learn to trust Layla and have no secrets because that is one thing that will ruin everything.
I loved that this book started out as a friendship and grew into so much more. The chemistry is off the charts, but it is so much more than just physical.  There is no drama about how they feel about each other, but there are a few trust issues that they need to overcome. They have no doubt that they are “it” for each other and love that they just knew that.  They do have outside forces trying to destroy them, but will they be strong enough together to get their happily ever after?
Cruz pulled me in from the first chapter and I could not put it down until I found out how it ended, and I was not disappointed. It had passion, humor and suspense. Everything you need to have a fabulous book! I cannot wait for the rest of this series.
