Siskind's latest slow-burn romance is stay-up-all-night addictive and proves love hits when you least expect it…
Growing up with an adoring father for a boxing legend isn't all sunshine and rainbows. It looks more like hospital visits, bloody noses, and cracked ribs. Isla Slade now works as a physiotherapist, helping athletes heal their bodies. Except for boxers. She has no interest in reliving the stress of her teen years. Dating someone in the boxing world? She'd rather snort wasabi powder.
Until she meets Preston Church.
Preston manages heavyweight boxing darling Brick Kramarov. A brute who's built tougher than his name, with a cocky attitude to boot. She wants nothing to do with either man, but her father begs her to help them prepare for a huge Vegas fight.
She doesn't expect Preston to recite romantic poems and slowly break her resolve. His fascinating mind gets under her skin, even if his star athlete reminds her how much she hates boxing.
Too bad it's Brick coaching Preston how to woo Isla, falling for her from the sidelines. Once she finds out, she'll have to decide if she can risk loving another man who puts it all on the line for the knockout.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The fourth book in Kelly Siskind’s Showmen series is so poignant—and its characters so excellent—that it stayed with us long after we finished. Isla Slade is a poetry-loving physiotherapist who has just one rule: She doesn’t work with boxers. That’s because her father, once a heavyweight champ and now a manager, has Parkinson’s disease due to chronic head trauma. But she breaks that rule to help her father’s latest champ, Brick Kramarov, after learning that her dad banked his future on him. We love how Brick defies stereotypes—he’s studying to be a linguist and woos Isla with the poetry she loves. Throw in Isla’s close father-daughter relationship, and The Knockout Rule reveals far more gentleness and kindness than you’d ever associate with the rough-and-tumble boxing world.
This is my first Kelly Siskind book and now I am hooked. Eric and Isla’s story is so beautiful and moving. There are so many different emotions, feelings, hurts, thoughts and love throughout this story. Kelly beautifully weaves the story together in a masterful way. Eric is a fighter...literally and figuratively. His job is a fighter/boxer but he’s also fighting to help his family financially and to be the man of the house. He doesn’t have time for dating or a girlfriend with the biggest fight of his life coming up soon. Isla is a strong business woman but sets her limits on who she will do business with. Her father has asked her for a favor that goes against her limits...but there’s is more to the story. As Isla and Eric become intertwined in business their fears, desires, hopes and dreams come to light. This is a really beautiful story that will leave you cheering for Isla and Eric.
