…we're keeping our name but expanding our offerings!
A fight for what’s right becomes a fight for his life.
As guilt plagues him, Matthew Elliott’s world begins to spiral out of control. The harder he holds on, the more it slips through his fingers, and he’s helpless to stop it.
Entering into the underground cage-fighting scene, he starts out fighting for what’s right. The deeper he gets, the more guilt consumes him – the more pain he takes for his penance, and he’s soon fighting for more than justice.
He’s fighting for love.
He’s fighting for his life
Sometimes you want to hate a character you love.
Sometimes you want to throttle them and force them do as they’re told.
And sometimes you are left dumbfounded thinking, ‘Wait… stop! Go back. This is not supposed to happen like this!’
These are the battles I fought in my head with Matt in this angst ridden sequel to ‘Point of no Return’. I was baffled by his behavior and fuming mad at him. I love him, yet I despised most of his actions.
Recently, I observed a small child arguing with his parents at a park. He was told to walk his bike down the hill (which was next to a small pond) and then he could ride it. He didn’t listen…he hopped on his bike, flew down the hill too fast and rode it straight into the pond. He wasn’t physically hurt, but he destroyed his bike, was left soaking wet and sobbing uncontrollably. And while his parents rushed to his side I am certain they were thinking ‘I told you so’, even while wiping away his tears.
This is exactly how I felt with Matt.
I saw it coming. I knew it was going to be painful. I tried to brace for it. It didn’t help. I was knocked down, nearly knocked out, and it hurt like hell. I couldn’t do a damn thing to stop it and it broke my heart.
After Matt’s world was flipped upside down he lay curled into a ball, trying to figure out how to stand up, shake it off and go on. Without the loving arms of a parent, I don’t think he could have righted himself. He didn’t listen, and he paid the price. Tough love is never easy.
Things kick off right after the first book and the air is still thick with the trauma lingering from the kidnapping and torture. Wounds may have healed on the outside, but internal injuries have festered and grown to panicking proportions.
Matt leaves the police force, and while he walks away from the department he finds he is also walking away from a huge part of himself.
Turning to cage fighting he hopes to release some of his pent-up anger, but will he lose more pieces of himself in the process? Acceptance is pushed to a whole new level, and bruises and blood must be shed to prove he’s a new man.
However, this new Matt may not be an improved version. Can he move on with his new life and still be the man Kira loves?
I was stressed. I was upset. I even raged a bit.
Yet, in the end I rejoiced and may have hugged my kindle a little.
Be warned, it’s not an easy fight to watch, but you will be rewarded in the end.
