Jessica has another book that she’s helping someone look for! Let’s see if we can figure this one out. I feel like I remember this one… especially that part about her setting traps around her tent to keep herself safe. Rings a HUGE bell.
Hey, I have another book find if you don’t mind!
Trying to remember a book, it’s extremely possible that I didn’t read the whole book/series so hopefully someone can get it off of this.
Contemporary series/book that has an age gap/some military themes/underground fighting ring themes.
The cover had broken glass? Or maybe a mosaic? Or raindrops? It was kind of distorted but in dull colors, it wasn’t bright. I’ve already checked my KU history, 99% sure i read it on KU or it could have been wattpad. I know I didn’t purchase it.
Teenage homeless girl, 18/19. She lives in a tent in the woods and has a dog, I want to say a wolf hybrid or even possibly an actual wolf. She also has a really old beat up truck. I remember her describing the color as “rust” that she didn’t even know what color the truck originally was.
She is an underground boxer/fighter, not mma. Her dad was a famous boxer and he trained her. She travels around following these specific underground fights, like I think they move when they’re close to being caught.
There’s like a whole underground/outlier society component. She sets up traps around her camp for safety and wears baggy clothes when she’s out so that she isn’t targeted as a young vulnerable girl alone and gets like followed, I think she had a bad experience at one point so that’s why she does that and sets the traps.
Okay so she lives in the woods, kind of close to a cabin and an older man who has some physical ailments and maybe dementia or just a bad memory lives there. She helps him secretly. Breaks into his house at night to clean dishes and his clothes, cleans the house, puts groceries in, etc. I think she even leaves him money.
The H is there one day when she’s going to break in and so she leaves but she overhears the old man telling the H that the Hs dad, old mans son has been taking care of him. H is like no grandpa, dads dead.
Of course she’s like insta lust when she sees H. I think H is back from the military and like ten years older than her. She goes back at some point and the H is gone. So she sneaks in and starts helping, H hears her like just his car or bike was gone and he was there the whole time. She is in her baggy clothing and he thinks she’s a burglar and attacks her. She gets away but she’s hurt, I think her ribs. He doesn’t know she’s a girl.
The beginning is all super clear but then I can’t remember anything else. Like how they actually meet but I do remember it being steamy and I want to say kinky. I think he’s really into her ass and ass play.
The only other thing I remember is that at one of the underground fights she’s supposed to fight him and freaks out because he doesn’t know she fights.
I think she tries to get out of it but there’s like a bad guy, who knew her dad, who forces her with some sort of blackmail thing, I think maybe they said they would just kill the H but I also think there was a blackmail component the whole time, like she’s always been forced to fight for him but she actually does like to fight but just not all the fights he wants her to do or something. I don’t know.
I’m pretty sure H is connected in some way to them, I want to say even an undercover cop and they know at this point or he is also being blackmailed because of something military related. It’s all a little confusing and muddled in my brain, but she does show up and he refuses to fight and is super pissed. Bad guy grabs her and has a knife to her throat, H freaks out refusing to fight still.
Her wolf dog attacks the bad guy and then I can’t remember what happens though!!
Edit: now that I’m remembering I think the H was former military but now he’s like a commando/mercenary/or like secret black ops and this underground ring/society is his mission and I think there is a trafficking component too. Like they traffic young fighters and former child soldiers. Not a sex trafficking thing.
Anyone have a guess?

Ivanie: Me too! 😂😂
JulieO: Somebody better come up with the title of this book! Want it on my TBR list. Did anybody ever figure out the other mysterious book that we were all salivating for awhile? I can’t remember details but I know I want to read.

Jessica: Kat Farthing series by K.L. Macrae <— Found it! Almost 100% this is it! She fights, pedo is after her and she’s sent to a cottage to live with an older gentleman and his wolfdog. Also, she sets traps around the cottage!! The hero is a security personnel. …
Maryse: Yep!!! Sure enough I just read the synopsis for both books and it seems to have all of the right details!!!! I bet this is it!!! 😀
