Stumbling along with amnesia after being left for dead, Elle is hoping for a warm place to rest her head for a little while, when she essentially falls into the lap of two men who are determined to take care of her and she is amazed at how easily she fits into their life of time split between Merrick's bid for a mixed martial arts championship and Cade's security business, but the shadow of her past always hovers over her. Merrick and Cade were great. Both alpha men, with Merrick being a bit more dominant, but I loved the easy give and take between the two best friends as they tried to navigate the new relationship they were forming. Despite being rendered fairly helpless by her amnesia and other circumstances, I thought Elle was a really strong character that was easy to relate to and I didn't feel she was your typical damsel-in-distress, but instead had a bit more grit in her. I was initially a bit perturbed about the loose ends left at the end of this book, until I continued on to the little blurb that follows about the second book in this series, Always Mine, and discovered that the second book picks up where this one left off. Yay! I can't wait to read it, and hope the second book will be released soon!
