Brawl: An MMA Standalone
Kylie Hillman, author
His heart died three years ago; it's now black and barely beating. Hers is broken, mangled and trampled, along with her trust and respect for men. Their mutual hatred for the world draws them together while their matching pig-headedness keeps them apart. Is happily-ever-after even on the cards when they both refuse to believe it's possible? Gabriella Mitchell is a fighter. She fights to keep her family together after her parent's divorce. She fights to keep her siblings safe and in school. She fights because it's the only thing keeping her sane. Stumbling across an underground MMA fight ring in Sydney, her blood roars as she watches the ruthless Hayden "Hooligan" Harvie wipe the floor of the octagon with his latest opponent. Gabriella decides she wants to fight professionally; to support her siblings with her fists...and she wants Hooligan to teach her. Hooligan doesn't think girls should fight. Especially young, pretty ones he'd love to have warming his bed for a night or two...if only he could silence his conscience long enough. Every couple needs to fight for their love at some stage; however, with two stubborn hearts at stake, a happy ending for these two will require an all-out BRAWL. Disclaimer: This story features a barely legal girl, who's wise beyond her years, and a much older man, who might have found love in the last place he thought possible.
