An ex-Marine turned MMA fighter, living in the shadow of his tragic past, Asher “The Tornado” Prince only wants to keep his head in the game, turning any man who enters the ring into dust. His temper is hotter than a branding iron, keeping everyone at arm’s length for good reason. He is all tattooed muscle, blood, sweat, and anyone who dares to cross his path, he’ll leave them in tears.
But one night is all it takes. One look is all it takes. Two broken souls find love in the unlikeliest of places.
Jewel wants out of her dark world, and she faces the fight of her life to get there. But she won’t do it alone. When Asher discovers that the skinny little kid who comes to his gym every night is a beautiful young woman, nobody will dare touch her again. They call him The Tornado, and Jewel finds out fast why he lives up to his hard-hitting, bone-crunching name. But when he proves to be the tornado to her demons, he also becomes the shelter to her storm.
And in the end, he will give up his dream, only so that he can… save hers.
