The main reason that I read this book was because of it's cover. The cover isn't really pretty, it's more intriguing. Anyways I really liked this book. I liked how it took the idea of gladiator fighting and brought it into the modern day world. Lyn is a strong capable young women, and she is forced into an arranged marriage by the Gladiator Sports Association when her 7th step father is killed. She lives her life by rules set by the GSA. When it comes to the ultimate test ,(an arranged marriage), of loyalty to the GSA Lyn proves that she has what it takes to push right back. I loved the story, mainly because I thought that it was sweetish. Though Lyn has to work past a lot of things she makes it. She loves her brother and will do anything to protect him. Overall a pretty good book.
