Olivia Beckett’s once-charmed life is falling apart. Her family is about to lose everything, and she has almost no chance of continuing her college education. She can’t even seek solace from her high school sweetheart. He’s changed. She doesn’t recognize the boy she used to know— his violent behavior is escalating and it scares the hell out of her. Her whole world is crumbling, and she has no one to turn to……

Sebastian “Bash” McDaniels is an up and comer in the boxing world working nights at the local college bar until he can land the fight of his dreams that will get him the hell out of Boston and away from his family’s tragic past. He’s weeks from his goal when Olivia Beckett comes tumbling into his life in a flash of silky dark hair and haunted eyes. When he saves her from a potentially brutal beating, they begin to grow close, but Olivia’s ex isn’t ready to let her go so easily.

Bash can’t bring himself to walk away, but fixing Olivia just might leave him broken…

This was a quick short,(seriously only about an hour) hot read.

Olivia Beckett life has turned to shit, and her boyfriend is becoming more and more abusive on top of it all.

One night while out, she is saved by Bash McDaniels, when Andy takes things a bit too far.

As I said this is a short novella so it spans a week and is the beginning of Bash and Olivia’s story.

Olivia stands to lose everything.
Bash doesn’t have much to lose.

A new take on the uptown girl and the guy from the wrong side of the tracks, that I for one can’t wait to see how it concludes.

This is my first Christine Bell book but I think I will def be hitting up her other books. Novella’s are hard to master, they either give everything away too quickly. Finish too soon. Don’t get enough chemistry to like the H or h.
However Christine has done just that. We get enough back story to be intrigued.
Enough chemistry to like the characters.
Enough mystery about what’s to come in the future and enough hints to start our brains working on what that might be.
Well done.

As for the characters: Olivia I’m not 100% sure on, something about her annoys me, but I’m hoping is fixed in book 2..
Bash.. sigh he’s a boxer so I was always going to love him. Just like an egg. Hard on the outside soft on the inside.
Matthias – Interesting, I’m assuming as the series is called “McDaniels Brothers” that he gets a book as well – Oh and did I mention he’s a MMA fighter? No. Well he’s a MMA fighter ^_^
Andy is an asshole.

Oh and I know you all wanna know how the sex is right?
Well I can say that while sexual chemistry is off the charts hot and goes throughout the book.
There is only one sex scene. Not the hottest thing I have read, but def steamy.

OH AND BEWARE… CLIFFHANGER! but only 1 month wait till the next is out. 

big shoutout to Barclay Publishing for gifting a copy in exchange for an honest review.
