James Kendall has spent his entire life being protective of those he loves. When unforeseen tragedy strikes, he finds solace in the boxing ring. But when the pressure of being the family leader causes his anger to spiral out of control, hurting those he vowed to always protect, his rockstar brother-in-law sends him to New York to cool down and train with a boxing legend.
New York socialite Sharlo Rockford was raised in the lap of luxury, but with an absent dad and drug addict of a mum, she can hardly classify her childhood as happy. Still, she's able to remain upbeat as well as a loyal friend even after her last boyfriend was unfaithful, she was traumatized in a home invasion, and her flatmate married America's hottest rockstar. With so much going on in her life, it's a miracle Sharlo can still be the rock everyone around her needs.
Following a chance meeting, James and Sharlo are unable to shake each other from their thoughts. When they reunite, it's with a bang…literally. But when James feels an obligation to return home to run the family business, he questions if his feelings for Sharlo are strong enough to fight for, or if he'd be better off throwing in the towel and admitting defeat.
Little does he know, fate is about to deliver one helluva sucker punch.
Warning: This book involves the whirlwind love affair between a brooding boxer and a strong, witty British heroine. If you're looking for an entertaining read with knicker-melting sex scenes, then sit back and enjoy the ride.
