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.
As I am sitting here typing this review up for Brawl I am wondering what I want to say. That is a good thing I promise you, and it is a good thing because I really felt like I was in the story with Gabbi and Hooligan and I don’t want to spoil their story because trust me once you start reading it you better hope that you don’t get pulled away until you read the very end. This is more than just another MMA book, it’s more than a book about two people who meet and have a happy and easy time once they meet. This book is about fighting for your survival, fighting for your happiness, fighting for respect and most importantly fighting for the ones you love. I am falling in love with this author the more that I read her, and I must say that Brawl is my favorite book of hers. If you are looking for a MMA story that is just so much more then make sure you read Brawl.
