Product description

Product Description


Every chance I get, I go to watch the local fights.
I crave the excitement and the rush as it courses through
my body, with the sounds of fists meeting flesh.

It’s not just the blood or the hard bodies that keeps me coming back each time, wanting more.
It’s Jace ‘King’ Kash and his artic blue eyes. He has fists made of steel with a body honed for speed. He’s breathtaking to watch in the cage. The King easily brings men to their knees, and then graciously helps them up when he’s finished.

Getting introduced to him was thrilling, falling in love with him, unexpected.
Jace comes pounding through, waking my mind and body up; showing me what I was missing out on in my life.
He makes me realize what I could have and that what doesn’t destroy me, will eventually make me stronger.

Illusions, life is full of them. My life wasn’t always like it is now, how it appears from the outside.
I was drowning in drugs, gangs and in my brother’s bad decisions.
So, I did what I do best, I fought my way out. I keep fighting, using every asset I have and attempting to get as far away from my past as possible.

Chyna enters into my life right as I’m prepping for the biggest fight of my existence.
I wasn’t looking for any new distractions, but she becomes my personal drug of choice, begging me to use her.
Unfortunately, Chyna’s not the only person that show’s up out of the blue.
When my past decides to go after my girl, it’s my turn to make it rain, to make it hurt.
I refuse to let it destroy me this time, dragging her down in the process. I just hope she can make it through the last round beside me and not forfeit.

Once that bell rings, watch out, because I will come for you, I will hunt you down and fight to the death.
I’m the King, I won’t be defeated.

Sapphire has done it again! Not only did she deliver a fantastic read but a fantastic MMA read! We already know she delivers great MC and Maffia books but now she adds MMA to the list!

When they finally meet after one of his matches, they have a mutual attraction to one another. Once they give in to their feelings for one another, their past comes back to haunt them. Will they make it? You will have to read it to find out for yourself!

I can't wait to see what Sapphire Knight delivers next!

This was an extremely good story! Chyna was a very good girl with some abandonment issues and Have was a very sweet man that literally fought his way out of a way out of a bad life and a bad family who were willing to do whatever they had to , to cash in on him for their own benefit! It was awesome that he broke free and made a life for them awesome ! I can't wait to read more by Sapphire Knight!! She's a wonderful author!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Knockout of a Read 4 December 2015

Okay I fell in Love with Sapphire Knight's writing when I read Forsaken Control. Her writing is so intriguing and flows well. Her characters are so well developed and the worlds she creates for us to travel are so vivid that it is like I am right there.

Unexpected Forfeit was my first MMA Novel I Know I Know I am behind lol but I assure you now that Sapphire Knight popped that cherry ;) ;) I will be devouring more so many more.

I absolutely Loved Jace's character. I loved that he came from a broken past but he did not let that determine his future he knew what he wanted out of life and he was going to achieve all of his life goals. One goal was to rise to the top of the MMA World and that he did. With the One Distraction He could not live without Chyna (Kiki). The fighting scenes was so phenomenal it was like I was watching it live or even on TV.

Chyna's (Kiki) was always a fan of Jace "The King" Kash and when her friend set her up to meet him let's just say she made an impression. Chyna was a spitfire of a character strong and independent yet vulnerable when Jace was around she had an attraction to him that was like a magnet that was pulling them together. Fate had a hand in that relationship and they flipped each other's worlds upside down it the most passionate and thrilling way.

Sapphire Knight you have outdone yourself again and you are now on the top of my must read author's list. Thank You for all the work you put into creating these amazing characters and worlds for us to become acquainted with.

2.0 out of 5 stars theory. 21 February 2016
By Mary Slykhuis - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I went into this book very excited by the potential but was very quickly disappointed by the execution. For me, there was way too much "telling" me exactly what was going on instead of "showing." I managed to slog my way through it but I doubt I'll purchase any more books by this author. To me, reading is supposed to be about using your imagination and this book did not allow that. It felt like I was being told exactly what to think and feel on every page. I dislike leaving bad reviews but even though this book was free on my Kindle, I was still very disappointed.

I enjoyed this story a lot. I like that jace wasn't a d-bag in the beginning like a lot of alpha males are in books. While Chyna had some trust issues, she wasn't overly whiny or insecure. I found the constant time jumps annoying. There's a smoother way to say it's been two days rather than "two days later..." At the top of the page.
