In the beginning I didn't like Grayson at all. He was abrasive, mean, and just plain rude. He had his reasons. His upbringing wasn't a good role model for him to follow in life. Kennedy is his neighbor and best friend. Her home is broken also, and her and Grayson just navigate towards each other. Both have feelings for each other, but they try to fight it until they can't anymore. Then, Grayson does the unthinkable. Kennedy is left to rebuild her life after sleeping with Grayson as well as the consequences from it.
Kennedy's friend surprises her by taking her to an MMA fight, where Grayson is a star. Neither have spoken to each other since that fateful night. Neither were expecting to see each other ever again. Kennedy wants to hate Grayson. Grayson just wants Kennedy. But when their past catches up to them, will they be able to overcome it? Through his actions of fighting for Kennedy and fighting to forgive sins from the past, Grayson becomes an alpha to love.
