When Nikolai Smirnoff was thirty-five, he was an MMA champion with a loving wife and a baby girl he doted on. Then tragedy struck. His wife died in a horrible automobile accident, but thankfully, his little girl survived.
Leaving his MMA career behind to raise Divya, he opened a gym in the small town of Live Oak, Alabama.
Now, years later, his life is stable but lonely.
Until Vicki Powell, a young woman in her late twenties, once a dancer on Broadway, leases the adjoining space next to his gym to open a dance studio. Having recently lost her mother, she understands grief, but life is for the living. When the vivacious Vicki meets the grumpy grappler, she is attracted to the older man, but Nik has deep wounds.
Will Nik open up for her?
