Tyler Morris did not have a happy childhood. He suffered abuse at the hands of his alcoholic father, then bounced around a series of foster homes. He became unable to express his emotions or deal with his past. Then, at fifteen, at a charity boxing camp hosted by heavyweight champ Jamie Lewis, Tyler found a purpose and an outlet for his anger.

Seven years later, Tyler arrives at The Gold Arena, Jamie’s Los Angeles gym. He’s desperate to train under the man who helped him turn his life around. With some difficulty, Tyler convinces Jamie to take him on, but their working relationship is complicated by a mutual attraction they both attempt to deny.

Jamie fears their relationship will ruin Tyler’s chance at a career in pro boxing. Tyler’s scars run deep, and he knows he could be hurt if he opens up. But how can he expect to win in the ring if he won’t let Jamie win his heart?
