I'm a single mom with a violent ex. Yeah, yeah, it's not the first time that's ever happened.
But I'm taking things into my own hands. I'm learning to defend myself.
My teacher is Axel, an MMA fighter who offers classes on the side.
I thought I knew what to expect: A cauliflower-eared fighter two punches to the head too late.
What I didn't expect was six feet of solid muscle, a bay boy attitude, and a smirk that melts panties.
But I'm done with men. Can't trust them.
So why is it when we're in the ring, and he's teaching me how to defend myself, that I feel my heart thumping?
Why do I stare at him when he plays with my daughter, is so surprisingly good with kids?
And why do I get the impression that he wants me to be his?
The thing about Axel is… he always gets what he wants.
I fight. It's what I do. It's the only thing I'm good at.
No… if there's one other thing I'm good at, it's another f-word.
I never thought I'd want to settle down. Screw the picket-fence B.S.
That is, until Marie ran into my arms.
Until she asked me to train her, to teach her how to defend herself against her scumbag ex.
Now all I want is her.
I'm going to make her mine… because I always get what I want.
