Lance Borel is a man who knows what he wants…
He wants to fight.
Since his mother became ill, fighting and being in the ring is the only thing that gives him peace of mind. The one thing he feels like he can control in life.
Hilary Vaughan is the kind of girl who isn’t sure what she wants…
Because she’s never had to want for anything.
Coming from a rich family, all her wants and needs are quickly fulfilled.
Now she’s just looking for fun in the most typical place.
But one night everything changes…
Lance and Hilary meet in a bar, but before things heat up, she blurts out she’s a virgin. Taken by surprise he walks away, but he can’t seem to get her off his mind.
A few weeks pass when they meet again, and for the first time in his life he believes he’s finally found something else worth fighting for.
Only now she's with Travis...and he's bad news.
Lance is such a man-whore and he doesn't care. His mother is dying of cancer and he fights because he wants to help his father with the bills. It's also a way of him escaping the impending loss of his mum. He only wants one thing from women. Sex. One night he meets Hilary at a bar and takes her into the closet to have sex. But she reveals she's a virgin and Lance can't handle it. So he abandons her there and runs. Months later he can't get her out of his head. He wants her but he can't find her and when he does she shuts him down.Then his mother dies and his world falls apart. Luckily for him, he is surrounded by great friends and family who support him. When he gets the chance to see Hilary again, he finds out she'd with another guy. But things aren't always as they seem.
This is a nice easy read and I enjoyed reading it mainly from Lance's perspective although we do get Hilary's as well. Although Lance's attitude towards women was off at the start, after his mother's death he did change. And I understand the way he handled finding out about Travis and Hilary. Another thing I loved was that it wasn't inst-love. If you enjoy new adult romance, then this is right up your street.

~~ EXCERPT ~~
I’m not the best guy in the world, matter of fact, I’m the guy your mother will warn you to stay away from in the bar because I only want one thing.
And I usually get it.
Things at Joe’s are looking just like they should tonight. The drinks are coming, the music is bumping and the hotties are here, damn it’s going to be a good night. I shouldn’t be here tonight or well any other night but it’s the only way I know to deal and be able to keep my head on straight.
Mom is dying. Unfortunately, Dad and I know this. It’s why I fight. I fight to help pay her medical bills and make sure the house is taken care of. Dad shouldn’t have to carry that weight alone and I refuse to let him. Mom got diagnosed with lung cancer a few years ago and she was a strong fighter from the beginning. The cancer went into remission but its come back progressing with a deadly vengeance. She’s steadily going downhill. She’s refusing to go to the doctor which pisses Dad and I off but we don’t let her see that at all. We don’t force her to go either which is probably wrong on our part but I just don’t want to make anything harder on her than it already is. I can’t imagine my life without Mom in it but here soon I’m afraid I’ll know what it’s like and I’m going to hate it.
Garrett buys a round of shots passing them out to us giving a toast to Raegan. “I’d like to give a toast to my sexy stubborn ass girlfriend. She’s one badass woman and I love her so fucking much.”
Before I throw my shot back I shoot her a grin, “I fucking love her too!” She rolls her eyes at me laughing. If there’s one thing I’m happy about it’s that Garrett found Raegan. They are perfect together even though they are aggravating as hell sometimes.
As much as I want to hang around these two tonight, I can’t help but scan the crowd. My eyes look between a blonde with a pixie style haircut and a brunette who is practically coming out of her shirt standing by the bar. Come to daddy. One quick nod to Raegan and Garrett is all it takes, they know exactly what I am up to and just like that, I stroll over towards the brunette at the bar.
I watch her intently. She notices me and her eyes widen as her cheeks turn a shade of blush. She’s gorgeous. Her hair cascades over her shoulders, the ends meeting where her cleavage begins. I lick my lips as I inch closer to my prey, she knows what’s coming, it’s written all over my face.
