A murderer’s child…A foster child…A troubled teen…Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega has never had an easy life. Being shuffled from one foster home to another after his father murdered his mother, he found himself in and out of trouble with the law. Never giving a damn about himself, let alone anyone else, his life was spiraling out of control; fast. Until one man and one sport changed everything.

Frankie Carbone taught Saint how to handle his anger and rejection; by fighting it out in the ring. On his way to stardom, Saint finds himself pushed into the spotlight and into the arms of more women than he can ever imagine; he’s completely content with one night stands and random sex.

Then Salem Harris comes walking into his life and changes his game plan. Saint finds himself wanting Salem in all the ways that scare him. She is off limits; taken. But that doesn’t stop Saint from going after what he wants, and he wants her.

Frankie showed Saint a new way of life with Boxing, but will Salem give him the one thing he's never known – love? Will Saint find himself fighting for the one thing he thinks he doesn't deserve or will Salem end up breaking his heart? Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega has had to fight for every good thing he's gotten in his life. Can he go the distance?

Tana’s Review:

This book will have your attention from the first page until the last. I found myself smiling and when it was over I even yelled NOOOOOOO! Because I wasn’t ready for it to end. Christa has done such an amazing job creating characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. Gabriel “the Saint” Vega has had a hard life and he would’ve ended up much like others that grew up in the same neighborhood that he did which was either in jail, dead, or an addict. However fate intervened and handed him an opportunity to turn all of that rage he felt into a positive out let with boxing. Not only is he completely drool worthy but he is a good man; maybe a little man whoreish but hey that just means more experience right? Right! He’s set in his ways and doesn’t see that his world has been turned upside down until it’s far too late. Salem comes into his life and at first he sees her as a challenge but that quickly turns into something much more.

This book has something for everyone. It has the action and angst but it also has some pretty steamy sex not to mention the drama! I can’t wait for the next book in the Down for the Count series!!
