Dylan “Ice Dragon” Thompson has suddenly become the hottest thing in MMA. He’s fought all his life for control and inner peace. He focuses on what he excels at—fighting and his work with the Centre. It’s what he knows and what keeps him in balance. His latest assignment has him fighting a war with a partner he doesn’t believe he can trust.
Vanessa Aldridge has grown up in the gym and has seen it all—some good, some bad. But when performance-enhancing drugs threaten her life and her personal sense of worth—enough is enough. The very people closest to her now have her questioning their motives and nobody is as they seem. On top of all this, she’s unwittingly become the number-one pawn in an organised crime game and she’s risking her heart on a guy who wants to fight for everything but them.
Vanessa quickly discovers that Dylan is far from what he appears to be. But what happens when his latest assignment blows his carefully created world wide open? Can Dylan win the most important fight of all—the one for her heart and their future? Or will he retreat back into the one-dimensional existence of working and fighting? Can Vanessa remain steadfast to her principles and just maybe take the ultimate prize? The battle lines are drawn.
When the bell rings, who will step up to fight? The prize: A future of freedom.
Finding freedom is a great book that I couldn’t put down once I started to read it.
I’ve got to say I didn’t really like Dylan to start off with but as the story gets going you start to realise why Dylan is the way he is and you start to fall in love with him.
All the things that have happened to Dylan throughout his life, he deserves to win in the end.
Vanessa is a fitness specialist who decides that she cannot stand by and watch peoples lives be destroyed by illegal drugs.
Vanessa is in the middle of an organized crime and performance enhancing drug scandal.
I liked Vanessa’s character, and the chemistry between her and Dylan is very hot.
I did expect this story to have more fighting in it but it’s more of a mystery with lots of romance, and the romance is on the sweet sugary side.
This book takes you on a roller coaster ride of events with twist and turns to keep you drawn into the story. Over all a great read.
