Darkness shrouds Noah James’ past. Drugs, alcohol, abuse—they cloud the few memories he has and threaten to eat away at his future. The only brightness in his life is Caitlyn Hale. She came crashing into his world the day he met with her father, the sports agent who could possibly give him a new start. That day, he left the agent's office with a professional fighting career ahead of him and the image of a hazel-eyed beauty imprinted in his soul. 

Rarely does life offer a glimpse of happiness without snatching it away. Just like he's always feared, the monster that haunts him comes roaring back. His entire life shatters, threatening to return him to the darkness he came from. The light-heavyweight champion is about to face the fight of a lifetime. He can only hope to make it through each round without losing the few things he has left.

Even as hard as she tried to force herself to believe that he wasn’t dangerous, she heard the murmurs around her that tempted her to believe differently. Crazy, rage, monster, all of them curses being murmured by the onlookers. She choked back a sob threatened to rise in her throat as she remembered the darkness shadowing his face.
He had truly left her in that moment. He left reality. The blackness she was determined to keep him from had swallowed him whole.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~MARIELA'S FOUR STAR REVIEW~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The title makes you imagine so many things, but once you get into the story it ends up with a more deeper meaning than expected. This book does have a sweet love story between Noah and Caity, but it's his story that overcomes the book. It was a different read for me, but touching none the less. To see a man who has faced nothing but hardship and sorrow find his way into the light. We all sometimes hit a low and allow the darkness to overcome us and consume our every thoughts and actions. I loved seeing ever action Noah faced to get out of the darkness, find the control he hid deep inside, and finally allow the light in. It did not hurt to have the most amazing team behind him. He had his own supporters without knowing it. This book was touching in so many levels. Allowing you to see how one can fight their way to the other side with more than fist. Sometime we have to give and allow others in. I give the writer kudos for drawing you in, sharing a story of more than just romance, and showing that even in the darkest moment we need to remember we are humans who need help sometimes.
