My Rating - 4 Stars
A love that's worth keeping is worth fighting for . . .
Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree.
Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.
Cormac "the Hurricane" O'Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the mis-fire. He's never been knocked out before, but when he meet Em he falls, HARD. Unlike any other girl he's ever met, she doesn't want anything from him. Just being around her makes him want to be a better person.
They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the fight.
This was an enjoyable read and my first book by R.J Presott.
The story is about Emily who is really shy and trying to start her life over when she meets Cormac. Cormac is a tough fighter but when it's come to Emily he is all sweet and very protective. It was a great story and it did suck me up until about 70% when I felt the story had kind of been wrapped up and was like one long epilogue but it was actually nice to red these as you don't often get to read or see the couple together once the story is complete.
There are so many great characters in the story, I cant wait to read the next book now. The book is very well written and has a good pace for the most part. I love seeing the friendships that were formed in the story and how these were developed and how they all supported each other, as I said a great bunch of characters and I hope some of them get their own book.
Overall a great romance read that I am sure fans of fighter reads will love.
