Win by Submission (Against the Cage #1) by Melynda Price



To win her heart, he’ll be in for the fight of his life.

After an illegal kick during a CFA title fight fractures Cole Easton’s spine, doctors say there’s nothing more they can do for the bitter Vegas fighter. They say it’s a miracle he can walk, if that’s what you call his crutch-dragging limp. Unwilling to give up on him, Cole’s manager sends the injured fighter to the best physical therapist he knows: his niece, Katie Miller. When Cole arrives in the small town of Somerset, Wisconsin, he quickly discovers his sly manager may have had reasons other than rehab for sending him to this frozen tundra.

After a year of running from an abusive ex-boyfriend, Katie has returned to her hometown to care for her father, who’s recovering from a stroke. When Uncle Marcus calls in a favor, she reluctantly finds herself taking on a rancorous MMA fighter, broken at the height of his career. He’s insanely sex-on-a-stick hot—and everything she loathes in a man.

If Cole thinks his fighting days are over, he’s dead wrong. To save Katie from her past and to win her heart, he’ll be in for the fight of his life.


While cleaning out some notes, I realized I never wrote a review on this absolutely fantastic freaking book.  This book is probably one of the hottest if not one of the hottest books I read this year.   I realized I never wrote the review because I started the second book in this series.

Needless to say I am in love with Cole, he is an arrogant pompous ass that you just want to love and scream

“Why won’t you love me??”  Then you remember you are reading a fictional character and realize how silly you sound.  This was the first book I read by Price but I can assure you I will continue to read her books.

Also let me tell you, this book will make you want to go ice fishing… because if it is that hot… sign me up.

Sure this book has the same cliche as a lot of other fighter romance the girl is damaged and running from an abusive crazy ex and manages to find herself in the arm of a very capable fighter.

BUT I don’t care… this book is so amazing you will ignore the cliche.  I can assure you.
