A woman running from an abusive past. A famous UFC heavyweight fighter who relies on his fists for a living. A slice of pie on Thanksgiving brings these two unlikely lovers together. The stranger ends up being Clay Powers, a famous UFC heavyweight fighter. Clay's large build and dangerous fists have always intimidated. People in his hometown keep their distance and Clay is fine with that. Everything changes when a new waitress at the local diner buys him a piece of pie on Thanksgiving. Touched by the gesture when it's obvious she can barely afford to survive, her warm smile and lush body churn up powerful feelings that leave Clay wanting more from her than pie. Melody is running from her past and the small, country town of Garnet is the perfect hiding place. With an ex-husband after her and scars from her abusive marriage etched deep, the last thing she expects is to fall for a man who makes a living with his fists, but she can't resist Clay or the tender connection they share. Finding love in the most unlikely of places, the passion is undeniable, but Clay and Melody know their haunted pasts and unpredictable futures leave the odds stacked against them.

Now THIS is what a romantic hero sound be like! LOVED this book!
My reaction at the end: It was a short book and I read it fairly quickly. But the entire book just felt like it was driving from one sex scene to the next. There wasn't much depth to the story. Which was disappointing given the subject matter of domestic abuse. The author could have created a g...
These books are a bit in style... MMA fighters are all over the place. Most of these books are really bad, they're full of controlling assholes with rage issues. This one, is not. And it was a nice change.Clay is a mellow dude that just happens to be good at fighting, in the ring.Melody has been thr...
