Haze Adams and Winter Kingston were supposed to be a done deal. A onetime thing. The notorious street fighter had one goal and one goal only: make the girl fall in love, break her heart to hurt his enemies, and move on to the next best thing. Easy, right? Wrong. Turns out the next best thing doesn’t exist, and Haze is the one falling... hard.

When he takes her to a lake house in a town filled with ghosts from his past, Winter dares hope that the unredeemable Haze Adams is changing his ways. He pushes, she pulls. Haze lets her in just to kick her out, yet Winter can’t seem to get him out of her system.

As lingering touches and almost kisses multiply, Winter discovers that with blue-eyed bad boy comes baggage—a lot of it—and that baggage may or may not include a vicious ex, a dysfunctional family, and a massive secret that would scare any girl away. Winter has never been one to give up. But Haze’s intoxicating touch might just be the one thing she should quit. So, when the boy who could possibly destroy you pulls you in for a kiss…

Do you stay and fight for love…?

Or run?



Winter Kingston is many things: a Netflix addict, stubborn, terrible at math. But there's one thing she's not... and that's ready. She is not ready to move to America to live with her aunt and cousins while her parents are away. She is not ready to transfer schools right in the middle of her senior year and she is definitely not ready to discover that her cousin spends his nights making money in illegal street fights. 

Haze Adams is the ultimate fighter. King of the ring and the bedroom, he's feared and breaks hearts like it's a sport. When the hotheaded new girl puts him in his place in front of the whole school, he knows he can't let it slide. But finding out that she's the cousin of his number one enemy, the fighter who threatens his alpha title? That's just the cherry on top.

Drawn to the girl he can't have, Haze challenges Winter's cousin to a fight. If Haze loses, he can never see or talk to Winter ever again. But if he wins: she has to spend a month with him. Alone. And Winter is not having it. Haze wants to do way more than hurt his enemies. He wants to destroy them. And he will. Even if it means using the girl he wants a little too much.

He's on a mission: win her heart. 

Will he ruin her... or will he fall?
