When your world crashes down…
When they all say you’re out…
When your body is broken…
I will rise.
I will return.
And I will be undefeated.

Nick Renshaw is the golden boy of British rugby. When a serious injury threatens his career, he starts to spiral downwards, a broken man.

Feeling abandoned and betrayed by those closest to him, he fights to restart his life. Maybe there’s someone out there who can help him. Maybe he can find his way back toward the light. Maybe … not.

Dr. Anna Scott might be the one person who can help Nick, but she has her own secrets. And when Nick’s past comes back to haunt them both, the enigmatic doctor is more vulnerable than she seems.

Broken and betrayed, the struggle to survive seems intolerable. Who will give in, and who will rise, undefeated?


Undeeated tells us the wstory of Anna and Nick. Nick is a rugby player, he was injured and his new club tells him to go see Anna, a sport psychologist.

I love Nick, he’s really kind and smart, he has a big heart and he loves playing Rugby. He didn’t have luck in love but he has hope in the future.

Anna is American, she came in England to take a new life. She likes her job and is good at it. She’s sweet and she has some difficulties with how people see her. What happened in her past causes her to be more prudent with people, she doesn’t let them him easily and a thing I like is that Nick can break her wall.

I really love these two characters, they are great and so perfect together, it’s a complete chemistry. Their relationship is slow to build, it begins with a friendship and turn into something more, but  it’s strong and full of intensity.

I really like the fact that the story is on rugby world because let’s be honest, I’m French, I love rugby and rugby player are awesome. As Stuart was a rugby player there isn’t no false note on this side, I love what Stuart and Jane have done with this story and I want more of them.

Quick word: This love story is perfect.


When your world crashes down…

When they all say you’re out…

When your mind is broken…

I will rise…

I will return…

And I will not be defeated.
