Fighting For It

Fighting For It (Ringside #1) by Jennifer Fusco



The first in a sexy new series where the hard-hitters of Las Vegas’s Stamina boxing gym are K.O.-ed by the women they never saw coming...

After suffering a devastating loss during his last fight, heavyweight boxer Jack Brady’s whole career went down for the count. Now, his late manager’s daughter has inherited his contract and Jack is pleased to discover that the girl he fell in love with as a kid has grown into a strong, sexy woman—until she makes it clear that Jack has no choice but to get in the ring.

Daniella Chambers is determined to get her father’s failing gym back on track with Jack’s upcoming fight. She knows Jack’s got the talent to become champion and decides to force the unmotivated fighter away from the neon lights of Vegas to train in the seclusion of her lake house. But when they take a time out from their sessions to steam up the bedroom, the urge to win gets all tangled up with their desires.
Now, Jack’s fight is swiftly approaching, and the fate of the gym isn’t the only thing on the ropes...



3 out of 5 stars

Overall I liked this and thought it was a good story. It had a great start and grabbed me from the beginning. I thought the writing was really good and I liked Jack and Dani. There was a decent build but it did feel fast paced in parts. I liked where the story was going, it was really interesting and I liked everything that was being laid out, I thought it had a really nice development.

The second half was harder for me. Sometimes I got Jack and Dani's connection, sometimes I didn't, they started to feel very surface to me. It also started to feel more drawn. I wanted something to happen but when it did there was no major build. There was a bit of drama but it was over quickly. I thought their relationship developed nicely, with a bit of tension and emotion but I felt like I was being told as compared to feeling it. There were some ups and downs but it felt like some things were glossed over. I did like the hotness, which there was a fair amount of, that’s always a nice addition.

It was all really good but it was never anything that blew me away. I was so pulled into the intro, and the first half was great, but the second half fell flat for me. Maybe it was just me at the time. I did like the overall story and how it ended, it was just certain parts that didn't work for me. Definitely a good, 3 star read for me.
