To fight for your future, you must unlock the cage of your past.
With a sick, illegal immigrant mother, a dead father, and a younger sister to provide for, struggle has become second nature to Grace. What she doesn’t know how to do, is hope or dream. Those are two things you don’t have the luxury of doing when you work three jobs to support your family.
However, when fate sends her a lucky hand, will she be able to let go of the past long enough to get out of the underground fighting ring and make it in the UFC? Or will she allow her past to haunt her, and her guilt to burry her right along with her dreams?
This isn’t your average love story. Sometimes, the princess saves the prince. And sometimes, the best person to choose to love, is yourself.

A quick and easy read that was well written and had well developed characters and a good storyline. It was an enjoyable read
Okay, so first of all I sat down to start this and ended up finishing the entire book in one evening, and now I’m obsessed!
I loved Grace and the way she navigated through life and every situation that was thrown at her. The fact that she was faced with so many obstacles and yet continued to keep going was something I truly admired.
I think what I loved the most about this was that it wasn’t a romance like I expected, yet in a way it still was. Grace did fall in love, she fell in love with herself and her dreams. When she realised that it was okay to choose herself, I’ve never been more happy for a character. As a main character she really shined and was the perfect #stoic heroine of her own story!
I also really loved getting to see her grow and form relationships with the other characters throughout the story, and the training/bonding moments between her and Johnny, and also her and Dar, were perfect. On that note, I really loved the setting of this book and the way it focuses on the female character being a fighter (in all senses of the word) and felt like this was really well done.
(Thank you so much to NetGalley and the author for providing me with an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review).
