Knock Out: An Alpha Man, Curvy Woman Instalove Romance (Beautiful Boxers Book 1) by Willow James
Brodie King has only one goal – doing whatever it takes to become a pro boxer. The last thing he wants is to find his mind and body derailed by a luscious, shy librarian. Now all he can think about is coaxing her to come out of her shell and how he’s going to make her his.
Humiliated by the only man she ever let into her bed, Tabitha Simms took the job in Walton, MA, determined to play it safe and accept her life as a lonely, quiet librarian. She doesn’t count on Brodie, a tattooed, possessive boxer interrupting her life and bringing out a side of her she never knew.
Knock Out is a sweet, steamy romance and is the first short read in the Beautiful Boxers Series. If you love possessive, alpha men, curvy women, hot love scenes, and instalove all wrapped up in a sweet, sexy story then grab a glass of wine and curl up in your favorite spot, because this one is for you.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a completely new to me author, and as far as I can tell, this is her first published work. It’s not a long book, but still manages to be a complete story. I have to say, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this story, and how real the characters seemed to be. Both Brodie and Tabitha were delightfully awkward at some points, but they are also perfectly amazing together. There was an immediate connection between them, which I love, and a smoldering heat between them that almost melted my kindle!
Honest opinion, this was a fun story. Not as long as what I usually read, but a great introduction to a new author. I truly enjoyed the story, which was hot, but still had a sweet innocence to it. I am looking forward to seeing what this author comes up with next!
