Unexpected Forfeit by Sapphire Knight

 The first book in the Ground and Pound series, Unexpected Forfeit is out today! Check  it out!

Every chance I get, I go to watch the local fights.
I crave the excitement and the rush as it courses through my body, with the sounds of fists meeting flesh.
It’s not just the blood or the hard bodies that keeps me coming back each time, wanting more.
It’s Jace ‘King’ Kash and his artic blue eyes. He has fists made of steel with a body honed for speed. He’s breathtaking to watch in the cage. The King easily brings men to their knees, and then graciously helps them up when he’s finished.
Getting introduced to him was thrilling, falling in love with him, unexpected.
Jace comes pounding through, waking my mind and body up; showing me what I was missing out on in my life.
He makes me realize what I could have and that what doesn’t destroy me, will eventually make me stronger.
Illusions, life is full of them. My life wasn’t always like it is now, how it appears from the outside.
I was drowning in drugs, gangs and in my brother’s bad decisions.
So, I did what I do best, I fought my way out. I keep fighting, using every asset I have and attempting to get as far away from my past as possible.
Chyna enters into my life right as I’m prepping for the biggest fight of my existence.
I wasn’t looking for any new distractions, but she becomes my personal drug of choice, begging me to use her.
Unfortunately, Chyna’s not the only person that show’s up out of the blue.
When my past decides to go after my girl, it’s my turn to make it rain, to make it hurt.
I refuse to let it destroy me this time, dragging her down in the process. I just hope she can make it through the last round beside me and not forfeit.
Once that bell rings, watch out, because I will come for you, I will hunt you down and fight to the death.

I’m the King, I won’t be defeated.



Jace has had a troubled past and has put his heart and soul into MMA fighting to overcome it. He’s determined, focused and he isn’t about to let anyone get in his way.

Chyna loves the MMA fights but she only ever goes for one reason – to see Jace “King” Kash fight. She loves his power and his focus and promises herself if she ever gets the chance she’d be all over that. When mutual friends introduce them their attractive is undeniable. Through a series of meetings they grow closer until they can’t deny their chemistry any longer.

Together they will fight for both Jace’s career, for each other and for their future. But with Jace’s past mixing with his present, will they be able to survive the fight?

Really loved this storyline, Jace is a brilliantly alpha fighter who is nothing but a teddy bear on the inside when it comes to Chyna. Chyna’s spunky attitude and humour was a great addition to their story. Full of drama and excitement this is one fight you won’t want to miss!
