Mixed martial arts fighter Reid Andrews’s chance to reclaim his title as light heavyweight champ is shattered when he’s injured only months before the rematch. To make sure he’s healed in time, his trainer sends him to recuperate under a professional’s care—Reid’s best friend’s little sister, all grown up.
Disorganized and bookish Lucie Miller needs some professional help of her own. She’d do anything to catch the eye of a doctor she’s crushed on for years, so when Reid offers seduction lessons in exchange for 24/7 conditioning for the biggest fight of his career, Lucie jumps at the chance.
Soon Reid finds him himself in the fight of his life...winning Lucie's heart before she gives it to someone else.
Reid FREAKING Andrews!
O.M.G!!!!!! Just thinking about him sets my blood on fire! He is a sex on a stick, toe curling injured mixed martial arts fighter trying to get healthy through physical therapy to be ready for his next fight. I’d say he is supposed to be the “fairy Godmother” of this story…however he’s more like a sex fairy. YUM! Due to a family emergency with his usual physical therapist, he is sent to a new PT who turns out to be his best friend’s little sister, Lucie Miller.
And although he is not exactly the Reid described in the book, to me, this is my perfect Reid:
“Lucie Marie Maris…I am completely and utterly in love with you. And as God is my witness-no matter how long it takes-someday I will be worthy enough to be your husband, because I can’t bear the thought of living without you.”
In a nutshell, I would have liked to see a little more depth to the main characters. The things I didn’t like were lack of character development and how predictable the story was. I felt as though I had heard this story many, many times and I would have liked to see an epilogue. However, I enjoyed the humorous moments, the awesome sexual chemistry between the main characters, how easy it was to read and loved the HEA. This didn’t knock my socks off, but it is a book I would recommend.
