Mixed-martial arts fighter Rich “Prince Richard” Estrada is rising rapidly though the MMA ranks. Matchmaker Lindsey Tuttle has become a big fan of the Lynn, Massachusetts hunk. When they begin a heated encounter, he abruptly ends it leaving her confused.

During a submission victory over Moreau, Rich breaks his foot so comes home to Wilinski’s Fight Academy in Boston while he heals. There he and Lindsey begin a rematch in what ended as a no decision while he also trains her sister in MMA. As Rich and Lindsay fall in love, he knows he must submit his heart to her as proof of his sincerity though he fears a rejection will leave him out for the count.

The second Wilinski’s Fight Academy MMA romance is a fun contemporary starring two protagonists who were support players in round one (see Making Him Sweat). Though much of the heat is off-page and mindful of Lori Foster’s SBC Fighters’ series, fans will enjoy this thrilling bout between the matchmaker and the fighter.
