Synopsis from Goodreads 

Desperate to find her sister, Erin goes to the only man in Houston who can help her--Ivan Markovic. The intimidating, tattooed Russian operates one of the most elite mixed-martial arts training centers in the world but it’s his shadowy past and reputed connections with Houston’s underworld that interest her most. 

To find her sister, she’ll need the help of her big, scary Russian protector—but asking for help from a man like Ivan carries a steep price, one that might just include her heart. 


      Ooooh, now this was quite a read. From the first page, this book puts you in quite the dilemma. I loved how far our main character, Erin, was willing to go to save her sister. She goes to a rough and dangerous area to get help from a man everyone tells her to stay away from. But Erin goes anyway. The owner of a tough gym, Ivan, doesn't want to help Erin, at first. But once he realizes the predicament Erin's sister is really in, he decides to help.

      I loved Erin and her dedication to her sister, Ruby. Ruby is a junkie and she has gone missing. Along with her junkie boyfriend, Andrei, who goes to Ivan's gym. Ruby is caught up in something dangerous. Something more dangerous than Erin first realized. Ivan is tough and quite scary, but he obviously has a soft spot Erin when he first sees her. I love that he is immediately protective of her. I have never read any of these “fighter” romances, but I should definitely start them up. I love this story of a guy who scares the crap out of everybody, has a rough past, and yet they can be such a sweetheart. Well, at least towards their ladies. I love the connection between Ivan and Erin. The way he looks after was great.

      This story was 89 pages long and I loved every page of it. It is action packed and full of likable characters. I am dying for more of these characters and this world. For a short story, it does such a great job covering everything. This was a sexy, fast, and suspenseful read. Highly recommended for those looking for a quick and thrilling read.

When I’m not chasing after my wild preschooler, I like to write super sexy romances and scorching hot erotica. I live in Texas with a husband who could easily snag a job as an extra on History Channel’s new Viking series, a sweet but rowdy three-year-old with Tetralogy of Fallot, and Bosley, our Great Dane with major mommy issues.

I also have another dirty-book writing alter ego, Lolita Lopez, who writes deliciously steamy tales for Ellora’s Cave, Forever Yours/Grand Central, Mischief/Harper Collins UK, Siren Publishing and Cleis Press.
