“I hate that I love you,” she said. “You left me.”
“I lost you, there’s a difference. Now that I found you, I intend to keep you.”
I’d tasted the sweetest fruit of temptation, and I wanted another bite. I had promised myself before, but once wasn’t enough. The savory flavor of her lingered long after I’d lost her. Contending with the pressure to return to the fight, in order to prove myself to my father and the world, I had to let her go.
It has been a year. Sofie Vincentia and I had played a dangerous game. For one night, we pretended, only to discover our farce was real. I’d lost her, but I hadn’t stopped searching, hoping for her return. I was used to getting what I wanted, so when she didn’t come to me, I had to go after her. This would be the greatest fight of my life.
LB Dunbar has a style of writing that is so personal, so original, the subject matter hardly makes a difference – there is always beauty. While reading Cain, I constantly thought to myself, “The words and fluidity of speech are so different from any other MMA fighter, and yet and no time does this seem out of place or odd. Cain is simply a well spoken poet.”
Sofie and Cain are two amazing characters who Dunbar has breathed such realistic life into, they become part of your circle of friends as you follow along with their journey. Many parts were emotionally draining, driving me to lower my e-reader and stare at the wall, allowing the words to marinate.
My girl Sofie broke my heart. A lot. I wanted so much for her, and the universe appeared to be hell-bent against her happiness. She became fearful and withdrawn when I was desperate for her to be wrapped in a loving warmth that only Cain could provide.
“once bitten, I needed to be twice shy.”
And Cain! that man infuriated me at the next breath I would be consumed with despair on his behalf. He’s allowed his vile and poisonous upbringing to crawl through his mind, putting the correct path under so much fog it would take a miracle to find his way. He needed a lamp. And Sofie shines so brightly.
I think my favorite thing about Sofie’s inner monologues were the wistful nature that was always present. I really can’t think of another word to describe it.
He was charming when he wanted to be.
This quote can be taken so many ways, but when I was reading it, I could feel her say this as if remembering the way the summer sun feels on your skin in the middle of a snowstorm.
You really must read this series from the the beginning for the best experience, but since all of the books carry the same amazing talent that only LB Dunbar offers, there is no reason not to.

About the Author:
I’d love to say I’ve written for 10,000 hours, and that makes me a pro. But I can’t say that. What I can say is I had a story in my head that wouldn’t go away. I thought typing it in my computer would be the end of things, but it only led to another story and another. I love reading, so characters in my head isn’t something new. What is new is my creation of them. Hope you enjoy my favorites as much as I do. Happy reading!
