Cort van Breda has won 35 death matches as a fighter in an MMA circuit so deep underground there are no rules and only the winner gets out alive.
They call him the Sick Heart.
They say he’s a shameless monster.
They say he’s a ruthless killer.
They say he’s as twisted as the man who owns him.
They say a lot of things about Cort van Breda.
But in our world violence is money, and money is winning, and winning is life, and life is the only thing that matters.
Except… he wasn’t meant to win that last fight.
And I wasn’t meant to be his prize.
But he did.
And I am.
And now his sick heart owns me.

WARNING: This is a sweet love story adrift in an ocean of evil. It is about two survivors dealing with their darkest secrets while they fight to change their lives. It is for mature readers only and has descriptions of deeply disturbing situations. There will be pearl clutching.

It’s been a while since I’ve read a J.A. Huss book, and I’ll tell you that it was exciting to get back into her dark and twisted world once again! Huss introduced us to another part of her dark world through illegal boxing. It’s a deadly and scary world, where no one is safe. People are all pawns and for those in charge are expendable.

I loved the way the story began, and it had me questioning what was going on, as it’s not a usual beginning to a Huss read, but after a while I understood and was excited for the direction of this story. There were some moments that had me cringing, but it wasn’t long before we were thrown into crazy action and some steamy moments!

Cort and Anya were both very strong characters, stuck in a world that they can’t get out of. Cort was very successful in his world, and was doing everything he could to secure his freedom and that of those he help close. Anya knew that it was easier to keep to herself so she could get through the dark world she was in. When backed against the wall she could be fierce. I enjoyed watching her show more strength throughout the read and stand on her feet to face those stronger than her.

This was such a great read, and I cannot wait for more. I enjoyed getting to know both Cort and Anya, as well as Cort’s entourage. There were some sizzling scenes woven throughout the read, and I was constantly on edge wondering what would happen next! I am so excited to continue more books in this world!

These two had insane chemistry, and every little moment pulled them closer together.

When I turn to her, she’s already looking at me. And when I kiss her, her mouth is already open.
I know this is the Lectra. But I don’t care.
I kiss her back with force, angling my body towards her, then over her, until she’s practically lying back on the steps. And before I can think too hard about it, or talk myself out of it, I slip my hand between her legs.

“There she is.” A cool hand flattens on my forehead. “Anya? Can you hear me?”
Who is that?
“Anya,” he whispers. “Wake up. It’s been almost two days. You have to pee. There’s no way you don’t have to pee.”
I try to laugh, because that’s true. I really do need to pee. But the pain that shoots through my face is enough to make me choke. And at the same time, the coughing is still happening.
“Can you open your eyes? Come on, Anya. Enough is enough. You need to come out of this. Maart wants to call for a ’copter to take you to the mainland. And you can’t leave now. Not yet.”
