Mavis always assumed that she would be in a hospital with the good drugs when her time came. Not in the middle of the road, with no one around but the damn town mechanic that hated her.

But there she was, having a rock star’s baby, with no one to rely on but the one that let it be known around every turn that she was a horrible person.

From the time that she met Murphy and became best friends with him at the age of eight, she knew he was destined for greatness.

But then her grandmother fired Murphy’s mom, forcing them to live on the streets, and making Murphy to realize that maybe they weren’t best friends after all.

Murphy loved Mavis.

At least, he had when he was younger, before she betrayed him.

From that moment forward, Murphy goes out of his way to stay the hell away from her, and always makes sure to never get too close. Even though everything inside of him screams to make contact.

When he moves back to town after being gone for five years, he tries his best to stay away.

But there she is at his CrossFit gym. Then having a baby on the side of the road. Oh, and breaking him a little more with each step she takes away.

Eventually, they find their way back to each other. The only problem is, by the time that Mavis makes her way back into his heart, it breaks. And not in a rhetorical way. In the ‘he only has days to live’ kind of way.


Highly emotional and gut wrenching! With book two in her Madd Cross Fit series Lani Lynn Vale is squeezing her reader’s heart hard with this one. The characters are highly addictive and their story brings so much emotion to the surface. Really enjoyed them!

Murphy and Mavis have history that causes emotion to overflow the moment they reconnect, but forced proximity brings about more drama than they ever expected. Their love story is beautiful and unexpected.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close-knit group of Cross Fitters that nudge each other along in the game of life as lives change, hearts expand and the unexpected always manages to happen.
