“Who knew a bad boy could mend a broken heart?"
What does a girl do after she discovers her fiancé is a cheating bastard?
In my case, I performed the ritual implosion of all scorned women. I drowned my sorrows in cases of white wine, wallowed in gallons of ice cream, and ignited a bonfire to burn away every damn remnant of his existence. Six months later, the only result was a permanent impression of my ass on the couch.
Adventure Dating my friends dared.
A new and exciting opportunity they said.
I thought they were crazy, but I’m not one to back down from a challenge, so I signed up for the entire four-week deal.
That’s where I saw HIM. Lucas Cummings. He isn’t the classic rich boy I usually end up with. The one whose idea of working up a sweat is waiting for his margarita to be served beachside. Nope. He’s a rough and tough bad boy that all fathers warn their daughters about. You know the type. Cocky swagger, chiseled jaw—the ‘V’.
SOLD, I said to myself, until I discovered he was so much more than just a BOXER.
Right to the heart.
This is a standalone book in The Modern Love World. You do not need to read book one, The Bartender, in order to read The Boxer.
Thalia, gets her heart broken in book one, and our story picks up six months later, with her still distraught. Thalia is normally so posh, having her life in order. So for her to still be this distressed has her friends intervening. They force Tahlia to pull up her big girl panties and get on with her life. She’s not ready for a relationship after her Chase debacle, and she has never been attracted to “Bad Boys”. When her two friends take her to a boxing match. A boxing match? Really? So not in Thalia wheelhouse of comfort. When she meets Lucas, she thinks maybe, a one-night-stand is in order.
Lucas is a sexy boxer, that has impressive “goods” and a sweet romantic side. He is defiantly swoon worthy! He seems like an all-around good guy. It doesn’t take very long for he and Thalia to start a steamy love affair. But is Thalia ready for that? Can she trust him?
There’s secrets in this book that I really didn’t see coming. I read this book in one setting, the pages were flying as I was laughing and fanning myself from the hotness! I guess, I’ll be adding Piper Rayne to my authors to stalk list. I would really like to know who they are, the Piper and Rayne writing duo. I want to read their books, if I haven’t already!
This book deserves, 5 big fat stars!
