One rule: don't lose.

When Gabriel Morgan's sister disappears somewhere in New York's underground, he'll do anything to save her. But finding her is only the beginning, because Marcus Slade won't let her go for less than ten million dollars – earned through Gabriel's blood.

Slade, one of five ruthless leaders of an organization identified only by a symbol, runs hookers and street fighters, and never gives up what's his. Including Gabriel's sister. To win her freedom, Gabriel is forced to undergo a brutal training program with Slade's top fighters in order to become one of them. He is branded, broken, given a new image, and a new name.

In the ring, Gabriel is known as Angel…and he does not lose.

Because the price for losing is his sister's life.

What can I say, it’s a testosterone fueled blood bath, and I loved it. An excellent series opener.

The characters in this story of very alive. Each has their own motives, past, goals, and aspirations. They react to the world around them in appropriate and believable manners. More importantly, none of this is spoon fed to the reader.

The story itself is fun, in a twisted, bloody sort of way. It’s refreshing to see a story where the main character is not given immunity or not allowed to fail.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story and recommended it to anyone in need of an action fix. I hope I get the chance to review the other books in their series.


  1. Thanks so much, Janelle! I'm thrilled that you liked the book!

    LOL - "it's a testosterone fueled blood bath, and I love it." - Can I quote you on that? :-)

    Thanks again! Would love to have you review the rest of the series!

  2. You sure can. I hope to see the rest of the series soon.
