Bianca not only has to deal with the ongoing tabloid rumors about her boyfriend's questionable relationships with other women, but also his constant absence when he is on the road. So now that Felix will be in town for two whole months to train for his next big bout, Bianca is thrilled. He’s even asked her to move into his cabin while he's there. But when he leaves for days at a time to promote his fight, Bianca spends time getting to know Felix’s gorgeous new trainer and good friend, Gio.

Now he's forced to make the hardest decision of his life. Risk losing a long time friend or walk away from the only girl he's ever loved.
