Emma: shy, traumatized, and an ex-wild child.
Duke: violent, abusive, and out for revenge.
Ryder: sarcastic, sexy, and champion MMA fighter.

Emma is determined to slide through freshmen year at college as if she were invisible; no drama, no risks, and especially NO BOYS. Nothing that could risk the quiet life she's gotten so good at living.

Enter Ryder, an attractive and mysterious MMA fighter clad in tattoos and a fellow student at Emma's college. He has a notorious reputation for skipping classes, not to mention the fights he's constantly getting into and the trail of broken hearts he leaves wherever he goes. But there's something about him, something feral, that Emma finds fascinating.

So when Emma's past rises up for another round, will Ryder be able to protect her or will he fall prey to his own past that may be even more dangerous than Emma could possibly have imagined? In a world filled with danger and suspense, only time will tell if love will triumph when it comes to two individuals who aren't perfect...until they're together.

That's not any regular cherry that's a f+xking cherry......oh were we talking about a sweatshirt?
This may be a weird time to say it, but I think this is really cute!
This is the stupid decision every main character makes at the beginning of the story.(No hate, just pointing out something I noticed) Great start though. ☺️

I can so relate to Brooklyn, but I usually get pulled away by my friends because apparently I am "too daring" and "always endanger myself"...
