What happens when in order to win, you're forced to lose?
The only daughter of an infamous Las Vegas pimp, Raven Morretti, grew up an outsider. Liberated from the neglectful home of her prostitute mother, she finds solace as a mechanic. With few friends, she's content with the simple life. Flying under the radar is all she knows and more than she expects.
Until she catches the eye of local celebrity, UFL playboy, Jonah Slade.
Weeks away from his title fight, Jonah is determined to stay focused on everything he's trained so hard to achieve. Undefeated in the octagon, he's at the height of his career. But resisting Raven's effortless allure and uncomplicated nature is a fight he can't win.
Jonah trades in his bad-boy reputation and puts his heart on the line. But when her father contacts her, setting in motion the ugly truth of her destiny, Jonah must choose. In a high-stakes gamble where love and freedom hang in the balance, a war is waged where the price of losing is a fate worse than death.
Will the hotheaded Jonah be able to restrain his inner fighter to save the woman he loves?
Or will Raven be forced into a life she's been desperate to avoid?

Raven Morretti is nothing more than a pawn in a game she doesn't know she's playing.
She's the daughter of an infamous Las Vegas pimp who basically used her mother to create the perfect hooker. Yep, that's right. Raven's mother was bred (actual word used in the book, I know) to give birth to a child just so she could grow up to work for her own father.
No need to say Raven is not close to her parents. Her father wants nothing to do with her until she's grown up enough to fulfill her "duties" to him and his business, and there's really not much mention of her mother except for the fact she's still turning tricks and basically neglected Raven her entire life. It's a screwed up thing to do, but understandable.
So Raven grows up and falls in love with cars, making her money working as a mechanic at one of her friend's shops. And that's where she crosses paths with Jonah "the Assassin" Slade, UFL playboy, and her entire life turns upside down...
I don't usually write many reviews, but when something is this bad I just need to write something to save someone their money. This is quite possibly one of the worst books I have ever read. The idea was promising, I liked the Raven character initially - sexy mechanic chic. In another review someone mentioned this was an "insta-love" story. And I was thinking hey I can do insta-love, I read 50 shades of grey and liked it despite the idiotic inner goddess. This book is a whole new low. There is NO suspensful chase, it is literally an anti climactic insta-love written terribly and predictably through and through. The characters are one dimensional, no evolution at all. Major flaws in the plot line too. I found myself skimming it to the end, I don't understand how this can have such rave reviews.
Raven Moretti's dad is a big time pimp who came up with the brilliant business plan of impregnating one of his best whores for the purpose of breeding the perfect prostitute. Now, 21 yrs later, he's finally decided it's time to come collect the goods---because obviously, he figured it was a good idea to wait 21 YEARS to collect his untrained and unwilling "prostitute" of a daughter due to his worry about the legalities of prostituting her while she was under the age of 21 (of course, the fact that it's illegal to prostitute her regardless doesn't seem to concern him). Right. Really wish I'd paid attention to the negative reviews on this one.
The plot of this book was laughable and the characters were kind of horrible. Jonah starts out as a total misogynist whose only use for women is sex. In the beginning, I found him disgusting - seriously, he claims he never hits the same "honeypot" twice and admits freely that he only performs "in and out...
