BELOW THE BELT
Jimmy Sawyer wants to be a champion boxer. Her father and grandfather were both famous Australian fighters, until her father's life took a wrong turn and left the family with shame. Jimmy wants former heavyweight Cooper Fitzgerald to train her, and soon they can't keep their hands off each other. But Cooper can't stand the fear he feels when she's in the ring, and Jimmy does sex, but not commitment. The days when Harlequin didn't do stories with sports backdrops are completely over when the heroine is a prize-fighter! Below the Belt (4.5), by Sarah Mayberry, is a gripping book that's impossible to put down. Jimmy is complicated and infuriating, but she's a heroine you want to see win, even if you have no interest in boxing.
