Title: Unexpected Forfeit
Series: Ground and Pound #1
Author: Sapphire Knight
Genre: Contemporary/MMA Sports Romance
Release Date: December 3, 2015
Every chance I get, I go to watch the local fights.
I crave the excitement and the rush as it courses through my body, with the sounds of fists meeting flesh.
It’s not just the blood or the hard bodies that keeps me coming back each time, wanting more.
It’s Jace ‘King’ Kash and his artic blue eyes. He has fists made of steel with a body honed for speed. He’s breathtaking to watch in the cage. The King easily brings men to their knees, and then graciously helps them up when he’s finished.
Getting introduced to him was thrilling, falling in love with him, unexpected.
Jace comes pounding through, waking my mind and body up; showing me what I was missing out on in my life.
He makes me realize what I could have and that what doesn’t destroy me, will eventually make me stronger.
Illusions, life is full of them. My life wasn’t always like it is now, how it appears from the outside.
I was drowning in drugs, gangs and in my brother’s bad decisions.
So, I did what I do best, I fought my way out. I keep fighting, using every asset I have and attempting to get as far away from my past as possible.
Chyna enters into my life right as I’m prepping for the biggest fight of my existence.
I wasn’t looking for any new distractions, but she becomes my personal drug of choice, begging me to use her.
Unfortunately, Chyna’s not the only person that show’s up out of the blue.
When my past decides to go after my girl, it’s my turn to make it rain, to make it hurt.
I refuse to let it destroy me this time, dragging her down in the process. I just hope she can make it through the last round beside me and not forfeit.
Once that bell rings, watch out, because I will come for you, I will hunt you down and fight to the death.
I’m the King, I won’t be defeated.
A 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Review for UNEXPECTED FORFEIT by Sapphire Knight
I love me a great MMA story, and Jace and Chyna made my heart happy. The personal demons from the past that these two faced and the willingness to open their hearts to each other when they discovered their passion and compassion for one another made this story not only more believable, but far more heartfelt. I loved how Sapphire Knight was able to capture the developing friendship, the slow and careful leap the two took to come together, and the additional troubles the two faced as they navigated their relationship. Jace and Chyna’s story is about learning to move from the past and embrace the future, to willingly allow one’s self to take a risk to discover true happiness while maintaining one’s own person. It is about breaking down the walls and forfeiting one’s fears to allow one to live and love.
As I shared with Sapphire immediately upon finishing this fast paced read, Jace has captured my heart! He may just turn out to be your next BBF! Oh, and everyone needs to cross their fingers that Sapphire will be able to retrieve Gavin and Aria’s story from her computer. Trust me, once you read Unexpected Forfeit, you will want to know more about those two as well!
