Review: Fighting For It by Jennifer Fusco

The first in a sexy new series where the hard-hitters of Las Vegas’s Stamina boxing gym are K.O.-ed by the women they never saw coming...

After suffering a devastating loss during his last fight, heavyweight boxer Jack Brady’s whole career went down for the count. Now, his late manager’s daughter has inherited his contract and Jack is pleased to discover that the girl he fell in love with as a kid has grown into a strong, sexy woman—until she makes it clear that Jack has no choice but to get in the ring.

Daniella Chambers is determined to get her father’s failing gym back on track with Jack’s upcoming fight. She knows Jack’s got the talent to become champion and decides to force the unmotivated fighter away from the neon lights of Vegas to train in the seclusion of her lake house. But when they take a time out from their sessions to steam up the bedroom, the urge to win gets all tangled up with their desires.

Now, Jack’s fight is swiftly approaching, and the fate of the gym isn’t the only thing on the ropes...

Review By Dawn

      I received an ARC copy for an honest review.  Before reading Fighting For It, I had never heard of Jennifer Fusco.  The synopsis caught my eye & I'm glad it did.  It's about a boxer who tries to make a comeback to save his manager's gym.

        Jack Brady lost his last fight overseas, a major fight at that.  After that loss, his life went downhill.  The girl he loved went away to college, his manager, RL Chambers, passed away and he started drinking.  Then one day that girl he loved long ago, came back into his his manager.  RL Chambers, Jack's old manager, left his gym, Stamina, to his daughter, Daniella Chambers.  When she walked back into Jack's life, all of those feelings he felt 10 years ago came back, but he wouldn't let her know that.  Stubborn man he is.

        Daniella is there to get her father's gym back into shape.  In order to do that, Jack needs to win the next fight he was scheduled for before RL died.  She was determined to get him back in shape, but didn't realize old feelings would come back. Whisking Jack off to her dad's cabin in Tahoe was the best way to get him back in shape for the next fight.  He didn't have the city life (bars) of Vegas to distract him.  There was fresh air & serenity.  While there, they were able to reconnect and boy did they.

        Was all of the training worth it in the end?  Did Jack accomplish his task of winning the fight?  There were some rough times and exciting moments that happened throughout but you will have to read it to find out.  It's well worth it!

        I'm always nervous when I try a new author, but have found, in the past, some of my favorite authors that way.  I loved this book.  Loved the romance in it.  Loved the feelings it gave me when Dani and Jack were together or when the story took a turn that made my heart race.  There were a few parts that slowed down a bit, but it was details that were necessary for the story.  Thank you Jennifer for giving me the opportunity to read this novel.  I can't wait to check out the rest of this series.
