Simone, you did me DIRTY!!!!!
I got so lost in this book and was so into it...and then the ending comes. *sigh* I honestly should have seen it coming.
- Action Packed --- I could see this being turned into a movie.
- Tons of romance
- Steamy -- super emotional sexy time scenes.
- Friendships and Family issues
...... but horrible ending.....
I would still recommend this book, especially to those who love Simone Elkeles, but jump into it knowing that Simone Elkeles twisted things around with this book ...more

This was a solid 3 stars until things got unnecessarily messy and complicated towards the end. Not gonna lie, I did enjoy the romance but the book has major flaws.
Said flaws include:
1) Some of the Spanish phrases were clearly copied from Google Translator and no one bothered to verify them. (There is something called context people!)

I loved this book! it only took me a day to read. I loved the characters, all of them where so well written and had deep personalities. I love the boxing aspect it gave the book character. I don't speak any Spanish but I love how all of books include Spanish. Ryan was so amazing and it was sad he didn't see it. the ending broke my heart but I love how all your suspicions finally come to light.
Usually an escape across the southern border has the person coming north, but Ryan has already made one huge move south, from Chicago to a tiny town in Texas after his alcoholic mom married an overbearing sheriff who can't stand Ryan. Boxing is his salvation, especially after his dad vanished before he was born and other kids bullied him. Life at home is ugly, what with Mom taking his stepfather's side and his two stepbrothers delighting in making him the scapegoat for everything.

I really enjoyed this romance with a boxer and princess. I loved the friends and romance. The ending I didn't really like but it was a very real ending.
I never write any reviews ever but Simone you got me fucked up tho!! Still, I shed a couple of tears so I'm giving it 3.5 stars.

This wasn’t the Simone Elkeles that I was used to reading the Perfect Chemistry Series. This was an unexpected surprise. Up to now - I’m not yet THAT sure if this was a good or bad surprise. Maybe something in between.
