REVIEW: (Warning—Spoilers in Review)
Be prepared for a heart breaking story of undying love and faith set against the backdrop of MMA training and fight.
“She was the reason he breathed. She was the reason his heart beat.”Max, a fighter with such love and patience in his heart and soul for Chloe. He will and does do anything to be with her. As a reader, you find yourself cheering for him to reach through Chloe’s defenses.
Chloe suffers from Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome, a very real and scary disorder that Max is determined to help her through. If like me, you wanted to know more start here: http://cvsaonline.org/ . However, her disorder is not the only obstacle facing Max’s love for her. Chloe, as so many people do, has built so many walls to protect herself from being hurt and abandoned again.
“She could hear forever in his voice. He forgets I’m damaged.”Max and Chloe slowly build a friendship that continues to grow and flourish with the support of great friends from their gym.
Max showed reminded me that there are still good guys, willing to fight for those they love. His resolve, patience and creativity brought many tears to my eyes. Never wanting to misinterpret any signals from Chloe he gives her a bag containing lip balm, a teddy bear, gloves, a candle and a box of condoms. Proving that she has complete control of the speed and direction of their relationship.
“If I grow old with you and we are never intimate, I will die the happiest man alive just because I have you.”
