The Truth Inside
by Trish Edmisten


GENRE: New adult romance



For as long as he can remember, Nate’s dreamed of being an MMA fighter. Nothing is going to 
stand in his way and no one is going to distract him. Everything is going according to plan when 
Natalie comes along. Even though he wasn’t looking for love, Nate can’t help falling fast and hard. 
Smart, sweet and supportive, she seems too good to be true, but it’s actually the other way around. 
Nate isn’t good enough for her, and he’s keeping a secret that will change everything between them. 
One day, she’ll see the truth inside of him. Until then, Nate’s determined to keep Natalie in his life for 
as long as he can.



“You really think I’ll win?”

Natalie gave him an incredulous look. “You know I do.”

“I’m asking your opinion as a serious sports analyst and not my girlfriend.”

“Oh, well, if you’re asking me to be a serious sports analyst, then no, you have absolutely no chance,” 
Natalie joked. “You do know why Davis is called ‘The Machine’, don’t you?”

Nate pretended to look thoughtful. “Um, because he’s in good shape?”

“I’m afraid not, sweetie.” Natalie shook her head as she gave him a pitying look. “It’s because when 
he goes on the offensive, he unleashes one punch after the other until he takes his opponent out. 
Punches in bunches.”

Nate laughed. “Punches in bunches, is that the Dr. Seuss school of commentary?”

“Yes, it is. I actually took a class on it last semester.”

“I’m guessing you passed.”

“I got an A without even trying and I’m not lying. I’m good at school. I think it’s cool. 
No matter the class, I always pass.”

Nate was laughing so hard, he couldn’t catch his breath while Natalie sat across from him 
wearing a smug grin. Damn, this girl was perfect.
