Becca Jameson’s spin-off of her wildly popular series
The Fight Club
The Underground Series #2
Dr. Katie Schwan has no idea what she’s getting into when she rushes to the back of a speakeasy to tend to an injured underground MMA fighter. But the hot Russian guy leading her to his friend has her attention.
Leo Gulin allows the sexy blonde to take his friend to her clinic. He hates that she inadvertently becomes a part of his deep-rooted problems with the Russian mafia. However, he can’t seem to stay away from her, even though she doesn’t need his problems on her doorstep or his dominance in her bedroom.
Months pass before Leo has the balls to ask her out, thinking the threat from the mafia has passed. But he’s wrong. And now Katie’s trapped in his world, and he must keep her safe from the multitude of people following them.
What does the mafia leader want? How can Leo convince Katie to accept him permanently in her bedroom and her life? He must, or risk losing her forever.
This is an edgy series involving an evil Russian Mafia king and his son. With his son in jail Grigory Yenin has taken over the Vegas end of his interests. In the process he has neglected his son’s pet project Underground MMA fighting. This has allowed several of his fighters to leave Vegas to start over in Chicago under a much more amicable manager. One who gives a better split in the prize money and who is willing to help them start over.
The problem is Anton is out of prison and wants his fighters back. They are being watched, all of them and not by all good guys.
Katie treated Dmitry after his fight with Joe Manitoba, a fight he was threatened to lose, but didn’t. This occurred after being ditched by her date Mitchell, his main goal was to get his winnings.
Leo was slow to ask Katie out but has been bringing his friends to her clinic for treatment. Some things not bad enough to require medical attention.
Leo can’t resist the doctor and finally asks her out. Here is a favorite scene that had my blood curling.
Anton Yenin leaned back and to the side in his chair to extract the phone from his pocket. He glanced at the caller ID before taking the call. “This better be good, Millings.”
“It is. Dayton and I are at the fight tonight. Mikhail Dudko was just in the ring.”
“Yeah. Is this supposed to shock me? I know you didn’t call to tell me that.”
“No. Leo and Ivan were here too. And not alone.”
“Who were they with?”
“Leo was with that doctor. The one who treated Dmitry about six months ago before he took off. I looked into her. Name’s Kathryn Schwan.”
Anton knew exactly who Dr. Kathryn Schwan was. He’d been keeping an eye on her for months, ever since she became a pet project of Leo’s. Surely the man was fucking her. Not that Anton cared who fucked whom, but he did like to know who Leo was keeping company with.
Millings continued, “And Ivan was with a small pale blonde. Cute. Blue eyes. Ring a bell?”
“Mikhail’s sister?” Anton sat up straighter. He’d assumed for months that Alena was in the country. There was no record of her in Russia. He’d tapped every resource he had over there trying to locate her.
“That’s my assumption. She looks a lot like the girl in the picture you showed me. Older of course. But I’d bet money it’s her.”
Anton leaned back in his chair and smiled. “Excellent. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll arrange for someone to leave a subtle message for our friends. Stir the pot. Keep those assholes on their toes.”

Katie has been puzzled over blood results from the sample taken from Dmitry, now having treated Mikhail and seeing the same results. Her curiosity could very well unlock things better left unknown.
Lots of excitement and twists in this one. I loved every page turning minute!
