"What I want you to do, Isabella, is find out what his real name is..."
Those were the words spoken to me when I sat down to learn about my final grade in college.
They not only shocked me, but changed the trajectory of my life.
Shadows Sampson has always been bigger than life on the campus of our college. Most of the time seemed as if he's older than the rest of us. Like he carries the weight of the world on his shoulders.
When I get close? I find out there's more to it than I ever bargained for.
And when the truth comes out; against my will - I hope I can get the forgiveness I so desperately want.
"You've gotta win this fight. We can't push rent back again..."
Those words from my sister's mouth put an exclamation point on how bad our situation is.
Especially after I lost the fight of my life. The one that was going to get us out of this apartment building, the one that was going to put us on a path we'd only dreamed about.
But me? I'd lost the fight, my confidence, and the motivation for the life I'd always wanted.
Until a baby I'd fathered was left at my doorstep, and a seriously hot girl from my college started paying attention to me. With that girl? I fall hard, only to find out I'm the subject of a story for her final grade.
Turns out, that's my motivation.
Quitting isn't an option. Not until my knuckles are bloody and not one person stands in the way of what I want.

I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This is a standalone story, and it was really different than I have read by this author before. It's a college romance type of story and also is a sports romance in the MMA world.
This book had a beauty and the beast vibe. Bella aka Isabella or Izzy is our heroine. She is at the mercy of her teacher, who insists to graduate college she must investigate Shadows life and write a piece on him, and she has six weeks.
Shadow is this big MMA fighter that is every mysterious in the community. No one knows anything about him or where he is from or even his real name. Belle has never met him, so she comes up with a way to meet him and spend time with him.
Meanwhile Shadow has a really BIG secret and Bella is keeping one as well. And things are not as they seem with Bella's professor. This story kept me going until all the secrets blow up.
What I loved most about this story is that in the end Bella saves herself. She proves that she is a very strong woman with a good head on her shoulder and she has power, and she uses that to not only help herself but also Shadow.
Shadows and Isabella both have family issues and secrets they are hiding. This fast paced read will pull at your heartstrings and have you swooning at the HEA ending. The storyline and characters will grab ahold of you and won't let go until the very end. I thought this was a wonderful read and would definitely recommend.
