When a black heart meets a broken heart, fists will fly.
A girl devoid of hope.
With all her energy spent trying to keep a roof above her brother and sister's head, Gabbi doesn't get time to play much anymore. Her parent's divorce has forced her to grow up too fast, leaving her to assume responsibilities well beyond those of a normal seventeen-year-old.
Burnt-out MMA fighter who's lost it all.
He had the fairy-tale life—the perfect woman and a son he adored. Until the day it was ripped away from him in the most violent of ways.
Hooligan is content to live with his rage ... until an angry girl breaches a chink in the armour that protects his black heart.
She's broken-hearted. His heart is dead and decayed inside his chest.
She’s lost the ability to trust while he doesn't think life has anything left to offer. When neither believes in fairy tales, can the vicious world of MMA show them that they're wrong?
That even the most f#cked-up deserve a happily-ever-after?
Brawl is the first book in the Black Hearts MMA series by Kylie Hillman. This coming-of-age tale is about more than MMA. There's themes of hate, hope, and healing - featuring a barely legal girl, who's wise beyond her years, and a much older man, who might have found love in the last place he thought possible.

Not my cup of tea. They danced around their feelings too much for me. She acts way older then 17. Which made it difficult for me to get invested in the relationship. Overall was ok. Liked the ending.
Nice story line. Couldn't put it down.
I hate giving poor reviews. I felt this book could have been better. Younger girl 17 but close to 18 and older guy 35. I kept expecting there to be a realization that made all the little things not so bad. The similarities in the girl and the dead wife and son were too similar and that was a little uncomfortable. The age of the girl and how she acted just didn't match up it was just over the top unbelievable, part of the time but not all. It was like she couldn't decide if she wanted to be 26 or 12. I do not want to put all the instances here because some body could really enjoy this book. I just was not my cup of tea and I ended up feeling kinda creepy in the end.
