On the Ropes #3
I was born a fighter. Abandoned by my parents, I spent my life forging my own pathâone guided by my fists and paved with pain. Untouchable in the ring, I destroyed everyone who faced me, but thatâs where my victories ended. Outside the ropes, I repeatedly failed the few people who loved me. Including my best friend, Liv Jamesâthe one person Iâd die to protect. Even though I didnât deserve her, Liv never stopped believing in me. Never gave up. Never let go. After all, she understood what Iâd lost, because sheâd lost it too. Liv was everything to me, but she was never truly mine. That was going to change. I lost my first love, but I refused to lose my soulmate. Now, Iâm on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life. Fighting to be the man she deserves. Fighting the solitude of our pasts. Fighting for her.
