My mom always said it was just something about the way he moved.
At first, it was the familiar form. He’s a fighter, built like a god from the past, the kind of man the universe doesn’t make anymore. His eyes hide a story, and every time I’m in his presence I want to keep reading him until I get to the end. And then…there’s the way he moves. His boxing is violent but beautiful, and his body is a seductive weapon. When he’s in the ring, he wears the stare of a man committed to the battle until his very last breath.
He could end me; turn me into her. Too much of him will leave me as a shadow, and I’ve lost so much of myself already.
But I have discipline. It came the hard way. Lessons learned, scars left behind, and trust stripped away from life.
I will breathe his air, but I won’t fall for a man like him. The only boxer who’s ever going to break my heart is the one who gave me my name.
I can always count on Ginger Scott to deliver a highly emotional read with a storyline that has so many layers of depth. Memphis was no exception.
Liv is scarred. She has been betrayed by everyone she knows including her family. She doesn’t trust people. So when she is forced to move back home, she is not prepared for Memphis and the pull they seem to have to each other.
There’s just something about the way he moves… like a ghost. Like a fighter.
These characters connected so well with each other. I did take 1 star off because I didn’t quite get some of the dialogue. I thought the banter might have been a tad awkward at times. I’m not sure if this was done on purpose and some people might find this endearing. Regardless, these were complex characters that complemented each other.
“…I don’t think anyone else will fit you like I do, Liv. And I don’t care how punch-drunk that makes me sound, it’s the truth. I know it because I don’t think anyone else will fit me either.”
Memphis had a heart of gold. His drive to be champion was not for money or fame. I loved that he found happiness in non tangible things and his compassion was so admirable. When it came to defending Olivia though, the alpha male in him came out. He tried so hard to prove to Liv that he was not like her father. He wouldn’t break her the way his father broke her mother.
“Breaking you, Liv, would be one of the biggest regrets of my life. And I just don’t do regrets.”
There was so much more to this story than I expected. As the book progressed, so many new revelations came to light. This story is slow paced but in a good way that kept it interesting. This is a great emotional fighter romance filed with heart that you should definitely try.

A sucker for a good romance, Ginger’s other passion is sports, and she often blends the two in her stories. (She’s also a sucker for a hot quarterback, catcher, pitcher, point guard…the list goes on.) Ginger has been writing and editing for newspapers, magazines and blogs for more than 15 years. She has told the stories of Olympians, politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals and towns. For more on her and her work, visit her website at http://www.littlemisswrite.com.
When she’s not writing, the odds are high that she’s somewhere near a baseball diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork ’em, Devils).
