**—**

Ross Ward is bound by the chains of his past he never could seem to shake, leaving him living in darkness, detached from the world around him, and an obsessive workaholic with really only one rule : mind your own business.

Until one night, there was Adalind Hollis - scared, confused, in need of help. And for the first time, he couldn’t convince himself to walk away, to mind his own business.

Even after she was getting the care she needed, he couldn’t seem to make himself stay away. But keeping her close meant he would eventually have to let her in, would have to offer over the horrors of his past, and hope she could accept them.

But even if she would embrace his past, could she accept his plan to exact brutal, bloody vengeance against the man who hurt her?

Grudge MatchI think I may have found my favorite love story yet from Jessica Gadziala! GRUDGE MATCH gives one hard-living anti-hero the opportunity to stop being his own worst enemy and accept that even he needs the love and a soft place to land that he never had. If it comes in a package filled with sunshine and flowers and makes him do sweet things, I dare anyone to call him a sissy!

She was a helpless victim of her own kindness. As Adalind lay unconscious and bleeding, it was her vulnerability and trust in the world that brought down Ross Ward’s walls of self-protection and opened the gates to both his heart and his trust. Owner of an illegal underground fighting venue, Ross’ world is less than pretty, but in Navesink Bank, he is a force to be reckoned with in more ways than one and the last thing Adalind needs to see the world through his eyes or to know the things he has done.

Adalind grew up in a home filled with love and family, but when she needed to spread her wings and make a new start, she was clueless to the world of Navesink bank where some of the most damaged and dangerous men in the world ply their trades just outside of the law and double-locking your doors is a way of life. Little did she know, her broodingly handsome knight in shining armor just might be one of the most deadly who is not afraid to fight for her honor.

Well, stir the passion, warm my heart and make me get all squishy! This time out, Jessica Gadziala gives us a heroine who knows what happy, caring family times are, and focuses on an anti-hero with a story that could melt an iceberg’s heart as the lost little boy inside finally finds a home for his heart!

I am voluntarily reviewing a complimentary ARC edition.
