Winning is good. Succumbing is even better…
Recently retired pro MMA fighter Steph Healy is through having rough-and-tumble romps with sexy blue-collar dudes. Unfortunately, Wilinski’s Fight Academy has hired an electrician with a body built to make a gal weep. And avoiding some full-body contact is taking all of Steph’s self-control.
Carpenter-turned-electrician Patrick Doherty is damn good with his hands. Sure, he’s not what Steph is looking for—yet. But he’s about to prove that she has seriously underestimated her opponent…
The moment Patrick has her deliciously pinned, Steph knows she’s in deep, deep trouble. Because this seemingly mild carpenter has the mastery to give her exactly what she needs…and this is one takedown she’s willing to take lying down!
Here we are again, back in the heady basement confines of Wilinski’s Fight Academy! If you joined me for rounds one and two, then you’ve met some of the men of the gym already. But are you ready for Wilinski’s first resident female fighter?
Steph’s stepped into the ring with some tough opponents in her day, but nothing’s prepared her for the threats that Patrick poses-a thump in the nose, a hammer to the hand and, before long, a carpenter’s big, rough fingerprints all over her carefully guarded heart.
I hope you’ll enjoy watching this lovable working-class charmer dismantle Steph’s best-laid plans for a whirlwind romance with one of Boston’s urbane elite. I certainly enjoyed writing their romance. Most anyone will tell you, I just can’t resist a man with capable hands a steel-toed boots.
