Jules Darcy had an unstable childhood. As a child she saw the risks of falling in love. As an adult, she will never let that happen to her. That is what prompted her to run away from MMA fighter Nick Giannakis when things were getting serious. Fast forward a year. She is using a job as an opportunity to reconnect with her father with his growing fight league. She is in for a surprise when she has to promote none other than Nick. Let the games begin.
I love me a good MMA read and "Dirty Boxing" does not disappoint. Jules is a character that has issues, which caused her to run from Nick. I thought it was cool her wanting to reconnect with her father. When she gets there and see's that Nick is also working for her father, things start to get interesting. These two together are smoking hot and have intense chemistry together. "Dirty Boxing" is more on the sexier side of storytelling, which I found steamy and I could not put it down.
Jules was a interesting character that had legit reasons for her thoughts on love. When you don't have good examples of love, how do you know what love is. She was just scared to take the chance. Nick tried to move on with his life when Jules ran, but just couldn't. It was so good to see their chemistry had not changed, it just grew. Can these two overcome past issue to find their HEA?
I recommend "Dirty Boxing" for readers who enjoy lots of steamy, sexy time with MAA on the side.
Perfect for fans of emotionally charged, sexy reads, Dirty Boxing, the first installment in the Blood and Glory series, is full of “tons of emotion and heat” (Molly O'Keefe, USA TODAY bestselling author), and reveals that the mixed martial arts battles waged inside the octagon are second only to the battles fought in the name of love.
