I've always been a fighter,
Even before I knew it was in my blood.
I fought the demons of my past.
I fought for my life.
I fought for the future I wanted.

Growing up in a foster home, after my father killed my mother,
I fought for who I was,
Who I could become.

And now, it's what I do, what I am.
My career is in the ring, taking down every opponent I face,
Every enemy who threatens me.
I fight.

But now, I've got the biggest fight of my life,
Fighting for her, the one I want,
The one I can't have.
Salem Harris is taken, but I swear to God,
She'll be mine, even if I go down for the count,
I'll fight like Hell for her,
Or die trying.

About the Author

Born and raised in New England, Christa is a married mother of three. She began writing her first book, Broken, in October 2012, as a love story to her husband, Frank. During the writing process, Christa managed to keep her book a secret from the majority of her family and friends, including her mother. She finally revealed that she had written a book on her personal Facebook page just two weeks before Broken was released.

Broken was released in February 2013, and within twenty-four hours of its release, it was on Amazon's Movers and Shakers list as well as in the Top 20 Erotica. Christa released her second novel, On the Ropes - Book One in the Down for the Count series, in February 2014. On the Ropes has also climbed the charts on Amazon, hitting the Top 10 Sports Fiction and the Top 20 Romance Sports Fiction lists. Book Two, Going the Distance, was released July 2014 and claimed the number 3 spot in the Interracial category as well being in the top 20 in Erotica on Amazon.

I have read a few books with boxers but have not enjoyed it as much as this one.  This is a must read.  It is a good book to take to the beach. Gabriel has known many hard times. Thanks to Frankie he has turned his life around and is helping to influence the other kids in the same situation. When Blaine wants the Saint" Gabriel to be sponsored by his new gym TKO, he brings his long-time girlfriend Salem.   Gabriel wants to f*ck her.  Then he gets to know her and realizes that there is a connection that they both feel. He comes to know that he loves her.  Now if only Salem could know and be free of Blaine and all of her family expectations of them to marry. Gabriel pushes Salem away the morning after she finally gives herself to him.  You need kleenex for the tears.  You will smile and you will cringe. This is a cliffhanger and I can't wait to read the next installment.
