DFTCBTBanner OTRCover f404f-addtogoodreads   Synopsis   A murderer’s child…A foster child…A troubled teen…Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega has never had an easy life. Being shuffled from one foster home to another after his father murdered his mother, he found himself in and out of trouble with the law. Never giving a damn about himself, let alone anyone else, his life was spiraling out of control; fast. Until one man and one sport changed everything. Frankie Carbone taught Saint how to handle his anger and rejection; by fighting it out in the ring. On his way to stardom, Saint finds himself pushed into the spotlight and into the arms of more women than he can ever imagine; he’s completely content with one night stands and random sex. Then Salem Harris comes walking into his life and changes his game plan. Saint finds himself wanting Salem in all the ways that scare him. She is off limits; taken. But that doesn’t stop Saint from going after what he wants, and he wants her. Frankie showed Saint a new way of life with Boxing, but will Salem give him the one thing he's never known – love? Will Saint find himself fighting for the one thing he thinks he doesn't deserve or will Salem end up breaking his heart? Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega has had to fight for every good thing he's gotten in his life. Can he go the distance? Teaser   OTRTease   Buy Links  





Life has been a roller coaster for Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega. From surviving a hellish childhood, to reuniting with his lost brother, only to hit the struggle of helping him battle his drug addiction. Boxing saved Gabriel’s life, and just when his career hits the fast track, he finally finds love with Salem; at least for a short time.

Social differences, obligations, and misguided good intentions tore Gabriel and Salem apart before they could ever really get started. Will Gabriel be able to save his brother from the whirlpool of addiction that threatens to drag him under? Is Salem capable of breaking away from the ropes that bind her to doing what’s expected rather than what and whom she desires? Can Gabriel convince Salem that their mutual feelings are worth fighting for, and that together, they will be able to go the distance?

My Review: I always thought there would be one fighter that did it for me and that's it. Well boy was I wrong. Gabriel " The Saint' Vega blew my other fighter right out of the water. He has all those good qualities that we look for in a book boyfriend. At least the ones I look for. First and foremost is he an Alph? Check. Is he kinda bad ass? Check. Does he have a soft side? Check. Does he fight for what he believes in, even when it means putting others before himself? Check. Gabriel has had a hard life but through it all he had Frankie his trainer. That is until one woman walks into his life and flips him on his ass changing everything he thought he knew. This is defiantly a series I will be recommending from here on out. Once you start reading I dare you to try to put it down without thinking that you need more. I read both books in 3 days and am still feeling them because when you think of things that happen in the book you can't help but sit there and just let it replay in your head. Especially when you hear a song that reminds you of the book. Here is my song that reminds me of Gabriel and Say: I want to thank Christa for letting me be a part of the tour.
