In His Corner


Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description/Synopsis:  


No sex for almost a year could kill a guy, but when you’re the boxer known as the Juggernaut, it’s the price you pay for turning pro. Tommy’s fully dedicated to his craft, until he meets the incredibly gorgeous Dr. Siena Carr. Now he’s looking forward to taking on this prim and proper lady in a wet and wild work-out…


Siena has seen many patients come through the ER, but none as sexy as Tommy Raines. With a nasty cut over his eye, she knows he needs stiches, but after he takes off his shirt, she needs some air. With rock-hard abs and taut biceps, it’s clear this man takes care of his body. And all Siena can think about is letting him take care of hers…


YAY – Double Review!


Mindy’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Kensington Books in exchange for an honest review*

Tommy Raines is a boxer turning pro, his fans have named him Juggernaut based on his ability to knock an opponent out. Being a boxer means you have to live life a little different. No relationships and absolutely no sex.

Dr. Siena Carr is an emergency room physician that is coming out of a long term relationship. Siena just wants to focus on her career and her long term goals. Watching a man walk into the hospital that has a nasty cut over his eye but screams alpha male will get anyone’s attention. Including Dr. Carr.

While Siena is treating Tommy’s cut her body responds to him in an erotic way. Why is she feeling like a school girl? When the nurses at the hospital let her in on who Tommy Raines really is she cannot get him out of her head but has an oath as a doctor to disagree with his job of bashing skulls in as a living.

Most women will try to change a man into what they want them to be unless you are a strong alpha man that refuses to change you demeanor, style of clothes and profession to please a snob of a woman that you have fallen for. I applaud Tommy for trying to be an understanding boyfriend but still expressing what he does not like.

This was an okay read for me. I felt like Siena belittled Tommy a little too much considering that he is an alpha badass in the ring. I did laugh at times, which makes me very happy when reading. The storyline was great. Who doesn’t like a man that can knock a person out in the first round.

My Favorite Moment: I absolutely loved the conversation between Tommy and Siena about how a little amount of condoms does not make confetti.

Injured fighter meets and falls for sexy doctor.

When I first started reading this book I could have sworn I’d read it before. It had pretty much the same exact setup as a book I’d read previously, however the storyline did warp into something completely different.

The entire story is based on them overcoming their differences so they can be together. Tommy is sweet, caring, and dedicated. He tries everything to please Siena because he loves her and wants her to be happy. I thoroughly enjoyed his character. Siena, on the other hand, was snobbish, inconsiderate, and I just didn’t like her. She tried to turn Tommy into all the things she liked, taking him from sweats and hoodies to designer labels and fancy food. It felt as if they were forced together but I never got the vibe that they actually belonged that way.

For me, this was an okay book. It had a few funny moments and a good sex scene or two, but ultimately it just wasn’t anything great.
