If there were an emergency number for adulthood, Matt Kincaid would have dialed it months ago. Raising his kid brother alone is already an uphill battle, nevermind when an ugly gang initiation lands the teen in lockup. Again. Only, this time for a hate crime against a local fight club, where settling debts isn't taken lightly. When the club offers to let Matt risk everything in a long-shot match with a man who's as brutally handsome as he is tough, he jumps at the chance.
If Matt wins, all will be forgiven. If not? Well, he might as well move in, because 'The Law' will own his ass...for a very long time.
There are no limits to what Lawson 'The Law' Gaumond will do to protect the club he and his former lovers built. An inner-city sanctuary where Anniston Falls' gay leather culture thrives, The Asylum Fight Club isn't an easy place, but it's home. Taking on a local hothead whose younger brother vandalized the space isn't high on his priority list, but there's something about Matt that cries out for a firm hand.
Lawson's never backed down from a fight, and he's not about to start when there's no way he can lose.
When renewed gang violence erupts, spilling blood over The Asylum, Lawson and Matt must confront their pasts to find a way forward. Gunshots and knives should be harder to survive than this rough love, but coming to the ring armed with nothing but the truth is their greatest challenge of all.

WOW! This book sucked me in and wouldn’t let go till way after the very last page. Flawed Justice is the first in the The Asylum Fight Club series. The Asylum Fight Club is a safe place for gay men to fight and f**k which I thought an ironic dichotomy but the authors made it work. While I am not a MMA fan the characters drew me in and made me want to know more. I fell for Law right alongside Matt and can’t wait to see what happens with Reed and Curtis.
This book was amazingly wonderful! If it wasn’t for the fact I needed sleep, I would never have set it down once I started. As it was, I stayed up way past when I should, have to read it . This is a wonderful world, full of people who were less than valued, thrown away, not wanted, and they found a place where they all fit in. They all fit in their own ways, with their own strengths, and they have their own weaknesses as well. They carry the scars inflicted on their souls, and they hope for better, while making this place, their world, their better place Matt never gave up, and life had been pretty crappy to him. He is the hope, and the hopelessness, that drives our story. Lawson long ago gave up, and even when he was given hope, he feels it is all gone again. Until he meets Matt. Their worlds collide violently, and they crash into each other emotionally. Everything hurts, but everything is better, when they are together. It takes some to work things out, and the path is fraught with sharpness and pain, blood and bone, but they make it, because Matt has the willpower, and Lawson needs the peace he finds with Matt
Three little letters – H-O-T!!!!! Loved this book! You can always count on Bianca Sommerland for characters with substance – flaws, foibles, hopes, and dreams. This book does not disappoint! I was unfamiliar with Tibby Armstrong, but will have to read more now. Matt is dragged into a world he never imagined when he bails his younger brother Garet out of jail. Again. It brings him on a collision course with Lawson and the Asylum Fight Club. While he’s being punished for a crime he didn’t commit, he’s willing to pay his brother’s debts in order to keep him safe. Lawson is a man stuck in his ways, but is drawn to Matt. Even when he thinks Matt was the one who wrecked his club, there’s just something about him. Assumptions and pride are his big stumbling blocks, but all is eventually made clear. Maybe he should have used the ‘usual’ rules for Matt after all… Full of emotion, excitement, longing – this book has it all. Plus, hot half-dressed men – I could almost hear the crowd and smell the sweat from the ring.
